Interview

I am writing this since I had two interviews in one day. Similar processes, different company. JP Morgan Chase really shocked me with how poor quality of their interview process. I have no grudge, but want to make sure someone else who applies is aware if it happens to them as well.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Dallas, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    A month after applying I had a very brief call with the recruiter. After, I was scheduled for a virtual interview with the VP of Business Support and few other support professionals that worked in the actual office. My information was then passed along to the actual hiring managers. I interviewed with three individuals for 30 minutes each (2 hour process). All of this was in a two week period. Dissatisfied that I never received any communication stating that they decided to move forward with another candidate. Had to repeatedly check the website to stay updated on the status of my application.

    Interview Questions

    • I felt they were typical administrative interview questions. I was asked about my technical skills in PowerPoint, Excel and given a few situational type questions around prioritizing, working with multiple executives and working in a fast paced environment. I was also asked questions such as: what makes you tick, where do you think you can improve, what areas are you great in, what drew you to the position, why do you want to work for the company. Since I interviewed with one person at a time some questions were repetitive.   1 Answer

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview

    30 minute interviews with other EAs and Bankers. General what if questions and hypothetical questions to see how you deal with problems, tasks, etc. You also meet with the HR manager. The interview process is very formal, but the interviewers are easy going and just want to get to know you and get a feel for how you would work amongst others.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Overall a bad experience. Appt is set up by a recruiter who has prepped me for the position and has in advance (thankfully) said "don't expect to spend more than 15 minutes" w/ the HR person. I arrive a few minutes early and have to wait in the building lobby vs. a reception area. I meet the HR staffer who brings me to her office and says "we'll have to stop if my colleague returns" (it was a shared office). What? How's that work for you all day? Should we really be in a conf room then?

    Very first question is: "what is your compensation expectation of us?". I am taken aback as we are all always told never discuss salary first thing. And I've come here via a recruiter who has at the very least laid out the salary range. I assure her the offering is on par w/ my needs but she really wants a hard/firm bottom line number.

    We finally move on and discuss my background - past forward. As I answer her question about job X she actually yawns in boredom. Super rude. I continue and start talking about my most recent role and she can't find it on my cv. Because - she only has page 2 on her desk. (I offered a fresh copy upon arrival - declined). She uses a group printer outside her office w/ 15+ others and page one was probably picked up by someone else in error. At this point she actually accuses me of not submitting page 1. My CV is a 2 page PDF...

    The interview is realistically over at this point and I just want to leave. She has not met the team/individual I'll be supporting and can't answer any questions about the role... Total time: 11 minutes. Huge waste of time. I did not ever expect to hear from her and never did.

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

    Interview

    I submitted my application/resume first week in December 2012. I received a call on 12/12/12 about setting up an HR phone interview on 12/14. After I passed the phone interview I met an HR rep in person on 12/17. Passed that interview with flying colors. Next step was to interview with five individuals on 12/21 which took about 3 hours. The interview was so relaxed yet extremely professional. I received the job offer on 1/22/13.
