    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (San Francisco, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied on their website in December. Got a invitation to do a video screening in February. You get a minute to read the question before it auto starts and then you get 3 tries to record it (but you have a lot of time to think about the questions in between recordings if you choose to record more than once).

    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?

      - How would you evaluate an investment in Uber at its current valuation?

      - How would you get Uber's beta?

      - Company trading at 4x Revenue and 10x EBITDA. What's the EBITDA margin for this business?

      - Mobile payments company is going public: it has an US business and a foreign business. US business has 35% EBITDA Margins, $200m revenue with a 20x EBITDA trading multiple.
        - What's the enterprise value of of the US business?
        - Foreign business has 100m revenue with 70% YoY growth, US business has 20% YoY growth.
          which business is worth more and why?

      - What would you say the WACC of a mobile payments company would be?
      -
      - If you could invest all your money into one technology company, what would it be?

      - Paper LBO analysis. You're given % debt and equity, purchase price, interest rate, etc. You're expected to calculate cash-on-cash return.

    Senior Administrative Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (San Francisco, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The whole process started out extremely positive but turned out negative and backwards. I was interviewed by the Project Manager, then the recruiter 2 weeks later. I was then scheduled for an interview with the team I would be supporting 2 weeks later after speaking with the recruiter, then another with a person on the team that was on vacation. Those interviews went extremely well, or so I thought. I was told I was hired but did not hear anything for 3 weeks. I finally get a call from the recruiter and she asks if I'm open to being a "temp to hire" and will get back to me if interested. I was then contacted by a staffing agency 3 days later. I declined the position. The whole process was long and when I originally spoke with the recruiter regarding my salary requirements, she said it was doable. That wasn't the case when I heard from the staffing agency. She told me it was something different and fixed since I would be temp to hire, if the position works out. This process was backgrounds and overall not a pleasant hiring experience at all. It has left a bad taste in my mouth for JP Morgan's hiring process. I hope this was an isolated incident and nobody else goes through what I had to go endure.
