    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was invited for a Superday after attending an informational event. Consisted of 2 "1/2 hour" interviews with 2 separate interviewers. 1 interview is resume review and "how did you handle a difficult situation, what are your other interest" questions. Other is more technical: "What are some of the regulations J.P. Morgan might face; What financial stories have caught your eye?". Will hear back "in a couple of weeks". Haven't received offer yet.

    Associate Corporate & Investment Bank Technology Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Two phone interviews followed by an in-person (Half day, 4 people)

    Location was in Brooklyn--they recently moved a lot of people to MetroTech Center. I didn't like the area surrounding the office, but the office itself was pretty nice. Pretty quiet, low-key atmosphere. There is no business presence in Brooklyn as far as I can tell, so no trading floors etc.

    People were nice and relaxed.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days - interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication from the recruiter was quick and good. My 2 interviews were scheduled back-to-back on the same day and no additional interviews. My group does not foster a good environment professionally or personally. My office floor is very basic, no perks. Work culture within my group is terrible, but it might not be the same everywhere else.

    Operations Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 days - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had someone give me his direct number & email after seeing the posting online. The secretary shot me down. Had a brief phone interview from a nice lady, and then scheduled a meeting in Fidi the same week. He rescheduled for meeting at the midtown office last minute. This is the very end of May, so things were quick. He had me brought in. Basically, he liked my grit. It was a 15 minute conversation over coffee with little meaningful dialogue. I told him the truth when he asked why I applied to his job opening; that it was the only summer internship posted(this was end of May). He didn't know why he received 100+ apps in a week. He promised to call me back in a week and said that whoever he interviews will be included in the 2 yr Ops Development program later on. He never followed up. Never answered/replied to calls/emails.

    He tried to label me an 'adrenaline junkie'.

    Interview Questions
    • He asked me "Why Operations?" about 5 times. Have a good example for why you're a team player. What do you do for stress relief?   Answer Question
