Applications Developer Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Houston, TX) in August 2015.

Interview

The interview focused too much on programming language and database skills with little focus on algorithms. The hiring process is extremely slow. It took me 5 months to complete it. It is a extremely inefficient firm.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Tallahassee, FL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    There were two 30 minute interviews, the first one just trying to get to know me, the 2nd one some behavioral and technical questions. They want you to be yourself in the interview, that is what the interviewer told me when I asked what his biggest piece of advice was.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Bloomington, IN) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I chatted with them at a career fair and got a next day interview. During that interview, I spoke with two people. The first was a more technically-oriented interview. The guy asked me about past development experience and a few questions about object-oriented programming. The second one was more of an HR type of thing.

    Interview Questions

    • "What is a static variable?" Should be simple for you studious ones, but I actually couldn't remember precisely what the definition was because I hadn't written any code involving static variables.

      "Why shouldn't I hire you?" Now here's a head-scratcher, haha. I said, "Because I'm brand new and have very little experience." Fair enough.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    Was asked to apply through a friend. Had an hour long phone interview with technical lead. They asked me to write a sample fully functional application using Ruby on Rails. A little background on me I have coded in Ruby for less than a year and have never coded in Rails. I successfully completed the assignment in a couple of days. The team reviewed my code and brought me in for a face to face group setting interview with over 10 people. Each person then asked technical and personal details related to the application they were working on. During the interview several people cursed and one playfully threw a notebook at another team member (not me). After the interview the team lead pressured me very hard to give him my current salary which I did not do. The entire process never spoke to an HR person or the hiring manager. In the end they said my skills in Ruby were not up to par.
