    Interview

    I was asked to have a second round interview with hiring manager. I told HR that I was in the Middle-East with very poor Internet connection. They told me I had to do the interview online as soon as possible otherwise I will be eliminated from the job. They sent me a dataset to analyze and to prepare a presentation on. I spent a day on my vacation creating the presentation. Then I took a taxi to my friend's place to make sure I can connect to their system. There was a system failure and I was unable to see the team or talk to them. After this I was advised by HR that I was eliminated from the interview. I sent an email to the hiring manager asking her to meet up live in a few days, when I returned to London, but she never responded.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied Online.

    First round was a telephone interview. Quite difficult, I actually thought I had completely messed this up.

    I was then invited to an Assessment Centre in London. All transport was paid for, and as I was unable to get a train on the day to get me there on time, they also paid for me to stay in a hotel overnight. On the one I attended, they also had 2 candidates who had flown in from europe.
    All assessment centre candidates were left in a room to mingle whilst they waited for everyone to arrive, we were then told we had 5 minutes to go before a test. This contained two parts; a coding question and analytical questions. The code we were given was Java or Python and we had to work out which bits were incorrect/could be improved.
    After the test time had run out, it was collected, and I was left in a room on my own for about 30-45 minutes. Then an employee came in and we went through my answers.

    The next part was a face to face interviews, I believe it was more of a strengths based interview.

    Finally, we had a group exercise where we had to read through information in a room on our own for 30 minutes, before joining as a group and deciding whether JP Morgan should go with Cloud or Virtualisation.

    It seems they had several assessment centres the same day, as when I was collecting my things to leave, there were more candidates waiting.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    When HR connecting me about the 1st round interview, he told me that I will be asked brain teasers on math, finance and programming. But the interviewer spent about half an hour on the programming grammer, on C++ and Python, some on which I find really difficult to answer. Then about five minutes on simple probability and ten minutes on financial engineering.

    Treasury Services Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (London, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied end of October and received an email from HR inviting me to two telephone interviews beginning of December, so don't worry if it has been ages and they haven't gotten back to you, it's a good sign. Two telephone interviews for me personally, was purely competency and motivational but they do ask about a recent article you read, so definitely find some good articles! For motivational, know why you want to work in the financial industry and have some unique answers for "Why JPM?". For competency, it's all pretty standard, always use STAR method and definitely go in to detail so they don't have to continuously push you. Be prepared for some brain teasers or simple maths questions, my advice would be to not panic and overthink (like I did), the answer may actually be in the question itself.

    I then received an email inviting me to the AC the next day (the AC was two weeks after the telephone interview). It started at 12pm and ended at 4pm, consisted of two interviews and a group exercise. Both were motivational, slightly technical and competency again. They have your CV in front of them and may go through it with you. Have some articles in your mind and know what Treasury Services is, they will definitely ask you this. Prepare for some brain teasers and maths questions again, I personally was only asked one but some people in my group were asked 4+. My tip would be to always show passion, they can read you like a book and will end the interview quickly if they get bored. Finally, have questions prepared to ask both interviewers, they will be expecting this.

    The group exercise was standard, 20 minutes to prepare a presentation, 5 minutes to present and 5 minutes for questions. My advice would to make sure you don't speak over people, always be open to different opinions and make sure everyone in your group is comfortable.

    2 working days later, I received a phone call from HR giving me an offer.

    Good luck and I hope this helps! I know that going online and reading glass door questions really helped me so I want to return the favour with my own experience.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan in December 2016.

    Applied online and there was no numerical reasoning test. I then went on to the phone interview stage. The interview lasted 40 minutes . Although, my interviewer had read my application, based on some of the questions asked. This resulted in a frustrating experience.
