    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I participated in several one hour intense interviews. Each of the meetings were professional but challenging. The interview questions were straight forward and direct. No one asked any hard questions. Nothing to complain about. Disappointed that it did not work.

    Applications Developer Associate Interview

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

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    One phone interview, and one in house interview, with three people or teams, about an hour each. Expect to be drilled on practical, computer science-related questions (the example below is more academic, but you would more likely be asked about specific scenarios and be expected to write grammatical code on the spot, like, "write me an SQL query that would... " type stuff)

    Interview Questions
    • Come up with an algorithm that will find the median of a list of numbers in linear time. (Actually this is one of mine - they usually look surprised, at least the junior guys   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I worked through a head-hunter, but the offers were not particularly generous. The first offer was exactly what I was making then, and they bumped it by 10k in the end. I have spent the past 3-4 years making significantly less than my coworkers because I didn't negotiate a higher starting salary. Be forewarned: they don't really give raises and bonuses are quite small or occasionally nonexistent.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had 2 interviews that were 30 minutes each. Both were fit questions where I talked about myself. The interviewers were MDs in the firm and were really nice. They were funny during the interview. They never asked any unusual questions or questions that would cause me to fidget and squirm.

    Operations Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed 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

    Associate Interview

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

    I interviewed online - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had applied to the position a month or two before the recruiter called me, but once he contacted me, the entire process took less than a month. The first round of interviews was with the hiring manager and a colleague at my level. The second round of interviews was with my skip level manager and the managing director for the group. The interviews were all 30 minutes each and very relaxed, informal.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions, at all. The interviews were all conversational with general questions about my experience/background. I spent more time asking the interviewers questions and listening to them talk about their experiences than them asking me questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They came in a little bit lower than what I wanted, but I was desperate to leave my employer at the time so I accepted.

    I interviewed 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.
