    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2010.

    Interview

    It was a group interview with three managers. It was one of the easiest and most comfortable interviews I have ever been on. I was offered the job right after the interview.
    I would only suggest that you be yourself. It seems like they went based on my experience and personality. I was not asked any Star Questions like "Tell me one of your weaknesses" or "Tell me about a time when you had a disagreement with a supervisor". So I was relieved by that.
