    Global Wealth Management/Asset Management Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed for over a year total. 12+ interviews. Asset managers are great, but HR is awful. Very bureaucratic and unforgiving.

    Pros: Strong reputation as the largest AUM firm, great, salary and benefits, perks, etc.

    Cons: The people who hire you are not the ones who will be working with you... this is very flawed and leads to miscommunication and disorganization. On-boarding and pre-employment teams are rude and unprofessional.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Brunswick, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (New Brunswick, NJ) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was maybe one of the hardest and most stressful interviews that I have ever participated in throughout my life (and I have done several interviews before). I was notified through career services at my college that I was selected for an on-campus interview and they were wondering why I never got back to JP Morgan. Being that I never received an email regarding my selection, I was awfully confused but promptly set up my time for the following week. I was confused yet again when they decided to change the interview from in-person to a Skype interview, but was still excited. I was told to log in at a certain time and I would be able to meet with my interviewers. I had two 30-minute interviews set up which were back to back. The first one went well- it was mainly going through my resume/experiences and discussing JP Morgan as a company. The woman interviewing me was a high ranked HR manager and was extremely pleasant. The second one was where the ship definitely sank. I logged on at my appropriate time (2:00PM) and was astonished when I saw another girl interviewing with my representative. He quickly said, "Sorry we're still interviewing. Can you give us a few more minutes?" Not only was I embarrassed but it was really disheartening that such an impressive company ran there interviews like a sweatshop without giving 5 minutes in-between to make sure there is no overlap. I logged back on at 2:05 to meet with my person again. He quickly apologized and said the interview was going to be 30 minutes (already lost 5 of those minutes) and he was going to ask as many behavioral questions as possible in that time frame. He wasn't kidding. He shot out maybe 15 questions in that 25 minutes and simply moved on to the next question every time I finished my response. I felt like I had just run a marathon after its completion. After the interview took place I received an email that I did not get the position maybe 2 weeks later. It was nice to receive the "no" email though since many companies do not give you this consideration.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about your resume. Why are you specifically excited about JPMorgan? Why do you want to get into the financial management field? Do you know what we do as a company and our departments? Tell me about a time (insert any example here).   Answer Question

    Investment Banking Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (San Francisco, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    J.P. Morgan was great throughout. I had interviewed for another office and expressed interest in the SF office and was flown out a few days later to interview. I heard back with the offer the following week.

     They let us meet with junior and senior bankers at a reception in San Francisco the day before the superday of interviews so we better understand the culture and the business we're applying for. The interviews were specifically for the investment banking summer analyst role within J.P. Morgan's technology group, so the culture is a lot more relaxed than Wall St. None of bankers even had suits on.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview consisted of typical behavioral investment banking questions + extremely technical questions + technical questions with a focus on technology companies.

      - What valuation metrics do you use to value private technology companies in different stages (early, mid-size--think series C--and mature companies?

        - Foreign business has 100m revenue with 70% YoY growth, US business has 20% YoY growth.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Tel Aviv-Yafo (Israel)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    There are several steps in the process, as I understand it changes for different candidates.

    Step 1:It starts with a 1 hour phone screen in which you have a live coding session with a JPMorgan developer. I choose python as a language I want to be interviewed. I was asked about my experience and my strength then four general computer science questions (algorithms and trees) and two coding questions (dynamic programming and trees).

    Step 2: Five different on-site interviews. three pure coding interviews, one with recruitment leader, one with the site manager.

    Step 3: Three on-site interviews with with Interviewers from US & London using TV and Camera.

    Step 4: A short 30 minutes phone interview with expected manager.

    Step 5: offer

    Interview Questions

    • When I said I am an expert with python they asked advanced questions about python. Questions like performance, data structures and how they works and some syntax.

      Regarding algorithms, there was no specific question about specific known algorithm, but understanding graphs, trees and dynamic programming definitely helped.   Answer Question
