Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

Interview

The recruiter contacted me based on a submitted profile. He was eager to get me in for an interview as the hiring managers were right in the middle of a huge hiring wave, and were in town for 2 weeks. He spoke to me on the phone for 20-25 minutes, said he was very excited to put me forward and thought I was a very strong candidate based on my resume, my background and my phone personality. He asked for a very easy writing sample (250-300 words and gave me a very easy topic). Once that was submitted he got me scheduled for an interview for the following week. He was there the day of the interview. It was 2 separate interview with 2 people per interview. One was the HR person and one was in the management/leadership chain. Both interviews lasted about 20-30 min, max. Both were different but asked some of the same questions. They asked about writing ability, ability to stand up for myself against senior level people, ability to analyze issues, do research, and some general leadership traits. I got a great sense that the interview was going very well. They explained the position and the structure of the bank in great detail and told me exactly where I would be working and the kind of work they expected me to do. The position was fairly new so they made it clear that things could be very different and that I should expect to be flexible. The recruiter met me after both interviews were over and told me that the first set of interviewers had already told him they were impressed. He reinforced the salary range that he quoted me when we had the phone interview. They said they planned to make a decision within the next 2 weeks. I received a call back about 4 days later making me the offer. They made an offer at the top end of the salary that he quoted me. Although it was a decrease in pay from my previous job (which they asked about) they ensured me that it was a bonus-eligible position which should help with the overall compensation.

Interview Questions

  • There were no difficult questions. It was mostly personality based. All the skills necessary for the job were apparent from my background and resume.   Answer Question

Negotiation

I told them what I made at my previous job, and told them what I was expecting. I was given a salary range by the recruiter prior to the in person interview and when they made the offer it was the top end of the salary quote. The salary quoted was only base compensation and did not include bonus.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Columbus, OH) in February 2012.

    Interview

    A pre-screening is conducted by the recruiter with questions emphasizing on and related to the information in the job description. Once the pre-screening is conducted and if the recruiter feels you have some (and in some cases all) of the required skills and experience, your name and information will be forwarded to the hiring manager.
    Once the hiring manager reviews the information provided by the recruiter an interview/no interview decision is made. The hiring manager communicates the decision to the recruiter who then contacts the applicant to set up an in person interview. The "speediness" of a decision once you have completed the interview is based in part by your credentials and the immediate need of the open position

    Interview Questions

    • Questions aren't created or asked in a way to seem "difficult". Instead questions are aimed at understanding the applicants knowledge as it pertains to the job responsibilities. HINT - Know the job you are applying for and be ready to provide examples of doing similar tasks and/or having similar responsibilities.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Two conversations. They offered and I countered in the same conversation. The next conversation was their updated offer and my acceptance
