    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied for the job online and about a month later I got a call from an individual within the department who asked a bit about my background and the call ended with her asking me to come in for the interview. I went in and interviewed with 2 people at the same time. The process was seamless and nothing out of the ordinary happened. I didn't hear back for over a month and I finally got the email letting me know that I didn't get the position.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any, they spoke and I listened. They asked about my previous experience and asked where I saw my career heading and what my goals were.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I had two different interview rounds. The first one was mostly JAVA technical questions, software design patterns and some general behavioral questions. Basic concepts of OOP, pseudocode abstract class. The overall process wasn't that difficult. In the second interview, I was mostly describing my resume, leadership activities, what am I involved in apart from academics.

    After 2 weeks of the second interview, I received an offer.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online on October 6th got a call back the same day about an hour after submitting application. I had an interview with the Assistant Branch manager. It went really well, she made me feel very comfortable. The interview was on a Friday, that following Wednesday I got a call back from the Assistant Branch manager to be interviewed with the District Manager and Sales Manager. Pretty much the same questions asked from my first interview, I guess they wanted to feel me out. They are all about building relationships with customers and want to see if you have a positive attitude and smile. The next day I was called with an offer from a recruiter. The whole process took a week.

    Negotiation

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I was asked to come in to the branch to interview with the branch manager who was actually very nice and the head of the sales team who by the way was very rude. He started texting and using his phone while I was answering his questions. He even started yawning in front of me, which got me really upset.

    Interview

    I had 3 interviews, which 1 was rescheduled several times. During one of the reschedules for the interview - the interviewer was a "no show" twice. Received an offer, but no follow up after a month of original offer. This process has been a roller coaster ride and as a result of the lack of communication, I am no longer interested in the role.
