    First interview was a 1 hour video call with one person. He asked for my 5 year plan, my recent experience and we discussed my master's thesis. Some questions regarding tree balancing, sorting, HashMaps. Atmosphere was very pleasant.
    Second interview was 1 hour video call with team leader and two team members. Team leader asked for my motivation and what I had done at my most recent experience to get a broad picture of my experiences and skill level. Then he left and the team members gave me three simple programming tasks. They concluded with behavioural questions and asked for my personal working preferences.

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Bengaluru (India)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Pathetic experience, had worst interview of my life. 1st round was really good all about problem solving. Joke started after second round, he asked me to write immutable class, while writing, he asked whether i will have to create setter method or not, i said as member variables are final, it will be compilation error if you even try to create one(setter method for those). So started arguing and even said "Because I am saying it, it will not give compilation error, now tell me answer" he could could have politely said we will check or something else. Then in further rounds folks came they were asking syntactical questions. After clearing all rounds, I told my expectation to manager and HR, they did try to negotiate. Then HR said I will let you know in couple of days. When I called after a week they said manager went to vacation, then I called HR again he said "I went to vacation, and will let you know in couple of days" and that couple of days never came, I stopped following up with them. This was very unprofessional behavior from their part.
