Operations Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ

Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Phoenix, AZ).

Interview

I applied on my school's career website and on JP Morgan's website as well. I received an email for a phone screen a few weeks later. It was pretty basic with some behavioral questions, why JPM, etc. Less than a week later I got another email from he recruiter stating I was invited to fly to Phoenix for a super day. It consisted of 2 behavioral interviews by people working in operations and a group exercise. The interviewers in this round expected a bit more detailed answers but the questions were relatively similar to the ones in the phone screen. The group exercise was the most challenging part of the day. They give you pieces of information and have you solve a logic problem as a group (8 other candidates) without showing each other what info you have. Only talking is allowed, no writing. Having woken up at 4am the same day to fly across the country, I was really exhausted at this point and was not able to focus or talk enough to do well. I think this is why I ultimately was not given an offer.

    I applied online. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    First round phone interview followed by an invite to superday. Met the other kids interviewing. Two individual interviews followed by a group activity. First interview was very technical while the second was more friendly and laid back. Group activity was definitely the hardest part. Works on communication and ability to remember things. The group is not allowed to write anything during this activity. Still everyone was very friendly and it was a great experience

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan in January 2016.

    Interview

    Was working on temporary role within the company when I got an email from someone saying they are looking to interview someone for an open role they had. They said I looked like a great fit and invited me to interview the same week. I met with two vice presidents and one associate on the day of the interview. Nothing hard, just questions like "tells us what your role is with your current team" etc. Promptly after leaving interview I got an email inviting me to a second round to meet with the roles Managing Director. I accepted and the following week I met with him and again no hard questions just asking me about my role and if I was up for the challenge. After a day or two I got an email invitation for a final 3rd round interview to meet with the Executive director of the role and it was the easiest interview ever. We just talked about my role and briefly about the types of things I would be working on. After the final interview I then sent my final thank you email to the ED and they said they'll let me know within a few days about their decision. The last day of temporary role I was in, the MD reached out to me to say if I was still interested and extended the offer to me. I accepted and paperwork took about a week to complete. Overall pleasant and great experience.
