I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in March 2014.

Interview Details – The interview was very polite. Technical questions vary from very easy to hard. I have failed in the very first interview.

Interview Question – What is C++ auto_ptr. Simple search in google returns the answer.

Difference between STL Vector and List - google again (dynamic memory allocation and so on).

Difference between C++ struct and class - mainly that all members of a struct are public by definition. Also struct can not be used instead of typedef and class is a type.

Implement atoi(const char* s) - I suggested something like

{
  int count = 0;
  while (*s)
  {
     count = 10*count + (*s-0x30);
     s++;
  }
}

You are given an array which contains pairs of number and one number without a pair. Find the pair. For example, {1,4,1,6,8,4,6}. The number without a pair is 8. The expected answer is XOR between all numbers.

What is GOF - Gang of four 4 authors of "Design Patterns: .. " Erich Gamma, Richard Helm or Gang of Four.

Explain overloading and overriding in C++.

Does Python support overloading?

And so on.

This was phone interview and I guess I could answer correctly all the questions if I search google every time. I decided that this is pointless in my case. I failed to answer most of the questions related to C++.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in March 2009.

Interview Details – It is purely based on the person or group of persons taking the interview. One of them asked questions randomly but related to the profile, while other person asking questions based on the experience mentioned in the resume. I had 2 rounds of telephonic and 1 face to face with the team member and it was very positive for me. Once you answer the questions positively then everything is fine. However, some managers do not like person with extra ordinary qualities to hire, they take it as danger for them.

Interview Question – I did not find any question difficult.   View Answer
