Mortgage Underwriter Interview

Anonymous Employee in Cleveland, OH
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Cleveland, OH) in August 2016.

Interview

I was interviewed by immediate supervisor and next level manager. The supervisor appeared newer to the supervising/management role. The department manager was easy going but asked strong interview questions. The biggest concern was that I was taking a step down since I have been in management for 30+ years. I reassured them that this was the route I was taking as I needed a break from management and wished to be an individual contributor. They were very understanding and personable and were able to empathize with the role I am choosing to follow.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    Very brief 15 minute interview, no hardball question, just a review of mu resume, and questions about my experience. Probably one of easiest interviews I ever had. Again, this was a very easy interview. I will note they were hiring in large volume and were fairly desperate for people.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview

    The interview was two folds. It included a phone interview as well as a group interview. Both were very short and direct. However the on-boarding process with a bit much. There is a lot that they look into so even after I received an offer it took another 2 weeks to be approved.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Cleveland, OH) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I'm a military veteran and used the Hiring our Heroes opportunity to receive this position. I was in contact with the military recruiter and was able to pick positions of interest and was given feedback as to if I could qualify for the position. Once at the interview, I was not given a tour of the facility (which is EXTREMELY QUIET, it seemed like if you talked to anyone you would be reprimanded).

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Jacksonville, FL) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I applied for the job through my university website for employers. The recruiter was from NYC and contacted me 2 hours after I sent my resume in. We agreed for a phone interview the next week. 30 min phone interview and the first question was a mortgage related question to calculate capacity to pay a mortgage, then behavorial. Passed and was then asked to fill out some information and apply formaly through their career portal for the specific position. Applied and was contacted to travel to Jacksonville to go through the interview. Arrived and was greeted by some senior staff members to break the ice and learn about the position and Chase. Panel was very thorough on examples and to ellaborate. I left knowing I delivered solid examples since I was already used to interviewing for many other jobs.

    Reasons for Declining

    I chose to decline since I did not want to move to Jacksonville, and I used them for leverage to secure my salary at the current company I will be working for by using the offer from JP Morgan Chase to lever myself up.
