Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Cleveland, OH) in October 2016.

Interview

Phone interview, followed by in person interview. The HR called several weeks later with an offer. They sounded very scripted and flat out stated that the salary is not negotiable.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2010.

    Interview

    It was a group interview with three managers. It was one of the easiest and most comfortable interviews I have ever been on. I was offered the job right after the interview.
    I would only suggest that you be yourself. It seems like they went based on my experience and personality. I was not asked any Star Questions like "Tell me one of your weaknesses" or "Tell me about a time when you had a disagreement with a supervisor". So I was relieved by that.
