    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY) in May 2019.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me via LinkedIn. There was an initial phone screen and then a call with the hiring manager. I passed both of these and then proceeded to another phone call that focused on machine learning. Make sure that you can talk about machine learning in laymen's terms. If you know you're stuff, then this should not be a problem. I passed this round and then proceeded to the final round which was 4 separate interviews with executive directors. They mainly asked about your experience and a couple projects that you completed in the past. I received a phone call the next day that I got the job.

    You will first be invited to take a virtual interview with questions and programming problems. It was either python to Java; the site was very hard to navigate. Maybe it was my computer? I am not sure, I had an issue with submitting the video interview.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Was contacted by the recruiter after submitting CV online. Quickly scheduled 2 phone calls - one with member of research team, then one with the hiring manager. Both went smoothly, main focus was on machine learning techniques and fluency. Tried to follow up after speaking the hiring manager, but they just disappeared. No response to emails. IMHO, quite unprofessional. If you know you are not going to hire a candidate, have the decency to send a rejection letter, don't just disappear. Takes < 5s to send a stock rejection letter.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Lots of red flags to look for. Recruiter doesn't schedule interview at the time requested and does it as his/her whims. No job description and details provided. Very misleading process. Interviewer arrived 10 mins late on the phone. While it was obvious to both of us that it's not leading anywhere the interviewer didn't bother explaining the position and ask if I had any questions. Total lack of respect for other person's time. Very soon it was obvious that they needed a coder than a researcher which again should have been made obvious in the first call by the recruiter.
