Application

The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

Interview

Submitted my résumé online and was contacted by HR to see if I was available to interview the following day. Dropped everything and showed up. Met two lower level associates but no hiring manager. I could tell they were both miserable in their current roles and went through the motions during the interview itself. Finished in an hour and got a rejection email 2 weeks later.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Wilmington, DE) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Bear in mind this is for the Chase Leadership Development Program Risk Management Track. Let me precede this review with sharing the fact that I made a glassdoor account simply to give JP Morgan credit where it's due. I enjoyed my experience with the JP Morgan interview process so much that I decided to contribute to glassdoor and share my experience. I first spoke with a campus recruiter at my school's career fair, and he gave me a great perspective on the company and the possibilities that they have to offer. I submitted my resume to him and expressed great interest in moving forward with the application process. We got along great and set the foundation for collaboration. For irrelevant reasons, I didn't have time to submit the application through the JP Morgan Chase website, so I never got the ball rolling in that regard, and no activity happened for about 2 months. Then, the same recruiter I spoke with at the career fair personally reached out to me and invited me to apply, saying the company was interested in me and urging me to apply through their website. The same day, I got an invitation for a phone interview for that week. I interviewed over the phone for half an hour and it went pretty well. It wasn't too structured in the sense that he wasn't simply reading off a list of questions he had. It was very interactive and he was working with my responses and following up on the replies I was making. After about a week and a half, I got invited to the Chase superday in Wilmington, DE. Although they gave me pretty short notice for this, they did provide travel accommodations so it wasn't too stressful. The moment I finally got to the Chase offices the environment was super welcoming. From the head security desk to the cafe workers, everyone had an agreeable way about them. I then met the very hospitable and kind recruiting program coordinator and he escorted all the candidates to a room to wait for our interviews. This is where we got a chance to meet some of the employers and meet some of the other candidates. Everyone in the "holding tank" was kind and enjoyable. I made great friends and had some good laughs, but also got a chance to gain some great insight from some of the current employers who were interacting with us. Then I did my two interviews. The first interview was completely unconventional and we just had a flowing conversation about stuff he wanted to talk about. He quizzed me on some math concepts, which I didn't mind. He started drawing graphs and inquiring about properties of curves, etc. This went great and he told me at the end that he was going to put in a strong recommendation for me. The second interviewer was a bit more structured and he had a list of questions he wanted to ask me, but it wasn't too cut throat or anything. He also seemed to have been pleased from our interview. Overall, from the moment I first talked to anyone in Chase to the moment I waved goodbye to the head security desk, everyone at Chase was very helpful and kind - definitely the kind of environment one would like to work in. Also, another point I want to make but am too lazy to go and put it in the right place in my piece is the fact that while the human aspect of JP Morgan was outstanding, the professional work that they do also stood out to me. Both my interviewers described to me the work that the department undertakes and it seemed all very interesting and rigorous.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    It was an on campus interview. The interview started with some general questions and past woking experience. After that, there came a question as " Can you tell me how many planes are flying through the United States now?" I didn't prepare questions like that at all, so my answer was not good at all.

    Application

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

    Interview

    referred by an alum and applied online. first contacted by HM but it was more like a pre-screening (no behavioral questions at all) and then forwarded to an AVP one day after for a phone interview focusing on SAS, according to the HM. the AVP was an Indian and had strong accent so he was a bit hard to understand, but he acted very nice and patient throughout the interview, though he was late for more than 10 minutes. He asked me about two projects on my resume with open-ended questions, i.e. you used the term "model fitting" in your first project and tell me what it is, AND you say you know logistic regression so tell me a little about logistic regression. For the LR question at first he clearly said he wanted to hear concepts so I started talking about equations and concepts, but before long he stopped me and said he didn't expect me giving lectures. So I asked whether he wanted me to incorporate concepts in the context of projects but he didn't respond so there was an awkward silence. So I proceeded and talked about the response variable I used and why, 4 predictors, partitioning, and the Data Mining tool I used, etc. Then he asked about model evaluation. When I finished, again he didn't make any sound for a long time, even after i hello-ed him once since I really thought I lost connection or what. All of a sudden he said "Excellent" and started introducing the department and the role. He said he'd finished all his questions and there was the atmosphere to put it an end then he started asking if i had SAS experience (I really have the feeling that he already forgot that part but all of sudden he remembered). Honestly I was surprised because 1) that should be the primary purpose of the interview and Chase is known for its "craziness" about SAS, and 2) I have SAS all over my resume and on top of it I say I have SAS certificates. Especially when I mentioned that I have SAS certificates on my resume he acted as if it was the first he ever noticed that. I was able to answer one of his two questions and he said I shouldn't worry about the second one because it was not important. What disappointed me is today someone I know in his group says he evaluated me bad because he thinks I wasn't prepared at all especially regarding my resume. Explicitly he says that I wasn't familiar with my own resume, and I wasn't able to tell enough about 4 predictors I used in LR so it was a sign that I don't know the project well. What else can I say? You may say I'm not prepared in SAS but in my own resume? Seriously? And never has he ever shown any interest in those 4 predictors after I mentioned them, so I figured maybe even if I said enough about them he would've found other excuses to turn me down.

    Interview Questions

    • SAS- if you have a data set of 1000 obs and 2 columns, fist being lengths (?) and second being RGB color. first how can you tell whether lengths are unique to colors and second how can you tell what length corresponding to what color (I wasn't sure about the second question because honestly his accent stopped me from comprehending it. I've tried a few times rephrasing and clarifying it but I failed)   3 Answers
