    S&T Summer Analyst Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very pleasant experience all-around. Applied online and through a source within the company. First round phone interview was very basic, behavioral (tell me about yourself, why JPM, etc). Received invitation for superday two days after. Superday was a bit more thorough, but nothing absurd - market sentiments, fit questions, with a few technicals. From beginning to end the recruiters were helpful, and the interviewers have kept in touch.

    • Let's play a game - I roll a die, and pay you in $ whatever number I roll (so if I roll a 5, I pay you 5$, if I roll a 2, I pay you 2$ etc). How much would you pay me to play this game?   View Answers (2)

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through the On-campus recruiting process and got a first round interview. Most of the questions were behavioral and pretty standard however I was asked a couple of broad vaguely worded questions to gauge my understanding of financial markets. There was also one of those standard "How many baseballs can you fit in an airplane?" kind of questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Given what you know about financial markets, explain one of them (eg. equity market says the interviewer) to me assuming I am someone who does not have any information or a background in Finance   Answer Question

    Sales and Trading Summer Analyst Interview

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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    One on campus interview--one or two fit questions followed by 3-4 brainteasers/probability questions. I was nervous and thought I wouldn't move on, but I did. Superday was 4 back-to-back one-on-one interviews (Executive Directors and Managing Directors). I only got fit questions that day, but I also come from a non-quantitative background and I think other interviewees got more technical questions.

    Interview Questions
    • I roll a die. If I roll a 1, I give you $1. If I roll a 2, I give you $2, and so on. Make me a market on this game, and explain why.   View Answer

    Was referred by an employee to apply online. Fairly simple application form. Was invited to a phone interview which was not the typical HR generalist filter. It was with a junior associate, who focused almost exclusively on quantitative questions.

    FPGA Engineer Interview

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

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was initially contacted by a headhunter who put me in touch with them. JPM then contacted me and asked if I could come into their New York office for an interview.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't remember the specific question, but I do remember it was a bit much for the 30 minutes the manager gave me to answer it. Plus I freely admit that I don't do well engineering on paper. That doesn't mean I'm lousy - FPGA's don't exist on paper and I need access to tools (not to mention at least an hour or two to think about how to approach the problem!). I found another job with one of their competitors, after all.   Answer Question

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview Details

    Met with some recruiters at a NABA National Convention, where I interviewed on the spot. The interviews with two MDs were pretty relaxed and didn't consist of any technical questions, just picked my brain to see where my interests lied. However, the position offered I was not too interested in so they returned with a new opportunity. This time I had two back to back phone interviews about 30min each where it was pretty conversation based. There was one algebraic question about the ball and bat.

    Interview Questions
    • If you buy a bat and ball for a total of $2.50, but the bat costs a dollar more than the ball. How much did you pay for each?   View Answers (3)
    Negotiation Details
    Was able to negotiate my location, didn't attempt to negotiate salary from the original offer.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process was very well organized. I applied on their website (rather than University Career Site), and was reached back out to within a month or two. Afterwards, we set up an call - pretty behavioral, at which, 2 days later, I was notified that I moved on to the Super Day the following week. The Super Day consisted of a networking event with the current Private Banking Analysts and other candidates and then two rounds of 30 minute 2:1 interviews. Heard back in 4 days with the offer.

    Interview Questions
    • All behavioral - only questions specific to JPMorgan were the economy (where should JPM look) and why JPM.   Answer Question
