    Relationship Banker Interview

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

    I applied online - interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview Details

    Applied to numerous positions available in retail banking ( Personal and Relationship Banker). Successfully completed an online assessment required to be considered for these positions.Received an invitation and scheduled interviews at few branches ( three weeks time frame).
    The first interview was a major turn off, the branch manager presented herself as an item from a frozen food section, I felt like I was applying for a funeral director position.
    The second interview, the branch manager told me right after the interview that he wanted to interview me with the district manager that coming Friday. Never heard from him, after three weeks.Go figure.
    The third branch manager seemed amazing and extremely knowledgable, a person with whom you d wanna work your entire life. She said she d get back to me within three days. Never heard from her.

    Received a job offer after a fifth interview.

    It's sad that some BM lack professional ethics, it takes 60 seconds to write a feedback and telling you in the face that they ll call you this coming Friday is especially sad.

The overall process from the first on-campus interview to the job offer letter was about 3 and a half weeks. Every interview was all behavior and fit questions.

    Personal Banker I Interview

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

    I applied online - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by a recruiter for a brief phone interview and invited to an branch interview a few day later. The actual interview took with two branch managers for about 30 mins and involved a number of behavior and scenario questions. Nothing is surprising and unexpected.

    After initial interview, i was referred to another interview with district manager and had a nice conversation. She was a very friendly person and shared her experience and thoughts regarding this position and the organization. By the end of the interview, she told me the recruiter would contact me in a few days but that phone call never came!

    To discover the result, I tried to speak with the recruiter who initially contacted me for the interview, but that person just NEVER REPLY EMAIL OR RETURN PHONE CALL. For such an established organization, it was quite UNPROFESSIONAL and IRRESPONSIBLE.

    Trust Administrator Interview

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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I went through three interviews, including an initial phone interview, and then two in-person interviews. The atmosphere during the interviews was friendly, and we mainly discussed my experience and how it relates to the job, as well as the nature of the position for which I interviewed. My phone interview was with an HR rep and was very short. My in person interviews were with people who actually work in the department and would understand the nature of my experience and how it applies to the position. It was very nice to be interviewed by people in the department who asked questions pertaining to the job rather than some of the generic-yet-challenging (and difficult and irrelevant) questions HR personnel are so notorious for asking during interviews. Overall, the process was very nice and easygoing.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was "what is your biggest weakness?" I know this is a common, if not universal, question, and people who ask it are probably tired of hearing "I'm a perfectionist" or "I'm a workaholic." It is hard to answer this question honestly without making yourself look bad. I suggest answering with something that is at worst slightly problematic and also explaining how you are aware of your shortcomings and constantly seek to improve them.

      An additional difficult question they asked me is why do I want to work for JP Morgan when I am qualified for many other positions in my field.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview Details

    Submitted application online. Was contacted by recruiter and set up an initial phone interview. This was mostly questions about why I wanted this position and more fit based. They asked for interesting articles i had recently read etc. Passed this stage and flew out to a superday two weeks later. Arrived thursday night, and had two 2 on 1 interviews on Friday morning. These were both fit and more technical (such as my thoughts on the European stock market etc.). Wasn't as prepared as I could have been, none of the questions were too unexpected or unreasonable.
