Investment Banking Analyst Interview

Investment Banking Analyst
San Francisco, CA

I interviewed at J.P. Morgan in November 2013.

usually 15/20 min of behavioral + 15/20 min of tech (standard corp fin / accounting questions)
most of them are very nice + busy so they won't bother you with crazy questions

Interview Question – answer a tech question in another language. not prepared for that   Answer Question

Commercial Client Banking Summer Internship Interview

Commercial Client Banking Summer Internship
San Francisco, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in February 2014.

Interview Details – During my first round interview I went through a 30 minute interview with 2 VPs. The superday consisted of 5 30 minute interviews.

Be prepared for technical questions and to speak about your knowledge of the financial markets and industry, if you don't have much experience in finance, make sure that you study the 3 financial statements well and that you know how to answer basic technical questions. Overall, I'd say that the interview is as much behavioral as it is technical. Also, make sure you understand the job description, CCB can be a bit confusing since different JPM group seem to describe the division differently

Interview Question – A few medium level technical questions and behavioral case questions. They want to know how you would react or respond to an unexpected problem.   Answer Question

Personal Banker Interview

Personal Banker
San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in June 2012.

Interview Details – I had only one interview. Some people had up to 3 interviews for the same position (phone with recruiter, in person with branch manager, in person with district manager). I only met the district manager.

They asked pretty basic questions about my work experience and college. They also wanted me to roleplay a couple of times as if I was a banker, mainly to see how I would interact with a customer and what my basic sales skills were.

Interview Question – They wanted to roleplay calling a customer to schedule a phone interview. Honestly, it was pretty easy, but I hadn't prepared for it specifically.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I wasn't able to negotiate. They simply hire too many people and have way too many applicants. You might have more success if you're coming with banking experience; I had none.

Bank Teller Interview

Bank Teller
San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

Interview Details – Applied online and took some sort of personality test. From what I heard most people are actually weeded out through this test. Got a call about an interview about a week later. Went to the interview and filled out a packet of questions first, then met with the branch manager. Talked for a little while and she was somewhat interested in my random skills on my resume. Eventually it came to training days which were a bit of a problem for me since I had school.
