I applied through college or university. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Columbus, OH).
I went to career fairs and also went to firm events they had at the university. That's how I came in contact with the recruiter and my self noticed. I got two back to back virtual interviews. Each last for 30 mins. Two weeks later I heard back with an offer.
- lots of behavioral questions, but they also test your knowledge about the banking industry and financial statements. They also ask who are the CEO and CFO of JPMC Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Columbus, OH) in September 2015.
Long Process. Applied online through website, received a call from HR Recruiter to come in for interview with supervisor and manager about a week later. 1st round went well. A week later, another email from HR for a second round to meet with another Manager and a VP of another division. Passed that. A week later, another email to have a phone meeting with the Dept. VP. I never heard back and sent followup email with no response but it shows me as still in the running on website. Way too long to wait. I saw they upgraded position and reposted, so I called the manager to follow up as she had said to for questions. She acted like I was bothering her and wondered who I contacted in HR and that they would give me a status. The VP I talked to gave me another answer saying the manager would be in touch. Different answers from different people. Then 2 weeks later, I got an auto email telling me I was not chosen to interview for the position. After 3 interviews? Thank Goodness I didn't get it. Have heard nightmares about Chase, guess it is true. Lucky me.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Columbus, OH) in June 2015.
Interviewed with 6 people on 3 different days. 1st interview went great. They outlined the position and a great fit. 2nd interview the Sr. VP was very rushed and didn't have questions prepared. He gave me conflicting information about the position and job specifications. They contacted my references prior to my third interview. Third interview went well, but they hired internally.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Columbus, OH) in May 2015.
Interviewed as a Contract to Hire position. JPMC wanted to fill some positions right away. Recruiting company presented resume to JPMC. In about a day, I had an initial telephone interview with a member of the team. He indicated that he would recommend an onsite interview. Had an onsite interview scheduled for the next week. Interview lasted about an hour and consisted of two sessions with three team members and managers in each session. A combination of discussing background and previous positions, along with some situational questions. Was given opportunities to ask questions about the job, environment, and project. Neither the recruiter nor I was given any feedback on the interview.

I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Columbus, OH).
Applied through my school's career website. On-campus interview requested around a few weeks later. I selected the earliest interview slot because I would rather be first or last in the interview lineup. It was 30 minute interview with a mix of behavioral and technical questions. I received an email a few days later that decisions of moving on will be sent in a week. In a week, I received a notification that I was selected for their Super Day. Super Day was on a Friday from 1:30pm-3:30pm. Most of us got in at 1pm and were able to talk to current analysts. The interview was split into three 30 minute parts: two behavioral/technical interviews and a presentation about a project you completed in the past. The order is random, but I got a sit down talk, presentation, and another sit down. The sit down talks are both behavioral/technical. The presentation was me talking for 15 minutes and the other 15 for questions. Got an email 4 days later with the job offer.

- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Columbus, OH) in March 2015.
I applied through my campus recruiting/career/job posting websites. I heard back from them in about 2 and a half months where they required me to apply through an application on their website. I was scheduled for an interview. There were two 30 minute back to back phone calls. The first one was okay (slightly below average), she really questioned how much I knew about the company. The second interview was more difficult. For one thing, the interviewer had a heavy accent and when you are talking on the phone, it distorted his voice which made it difficult to interpret. I still thought I did a pretty good job understanding what he was saying and what he was asking. Overall, I thought it was one of the most difficult interviews I have ever had and I knew I was not going to be offered a position, which I was glad. I was not fond of the location of the position (Columbus, Ohio) and I thought some of the questions were either not relevant or unfair to the extent that there was clearly an expectation that I should know certain things, all though my major particularly does not have a focus on certain areas.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Columbus, OH) in February 2015.
It was a technical phone interview. They, as do most employers nowadays, expect a technical person to be answer technical questions with exact syntax, which not many can do. They also don't take into consideration that just because a person has perhaps been out of work for a year or two (due to no fault of their own) doesn't mean that person has forgotten everything they new.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Columbus, OH) in November 2014.
I applied through the Winning Women Program (online application; it's like a superday) and had two back-to-back interviews. They were all standard behavioral and situational questions. As long as you know your resume and could elaborate each experience with a good example, you will be fine. The questions include: 1Tell me about JPMorgan in Technology. Why do you want to apply for this position. 2 Tell me about yourself. 3Tell me a time when you feel you are under-ultilized. 4Tell me a time when you faced a challenge (could not remember but a similar one) 5 Tell me a experience that you performed data analysis. 6 If two stakeholders cannot agree with each other, what would you do. 7 Innovative technology or fundamental functions. (For all who apply through the Wining Women Program, I hope this comment would help.)
- I expected some technical questions, but there was none. So knowing your resume is much more important. The most difficult questions were: Tell me a time when you feel you are under-ultilized. and Tell me a experience that you performed data analysis., since I was unprepared for them. Answer Question
