    QA Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bangalore
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the opening through LinkedIn and got a call from the Hiring team. The hiring team member was asking about the role and duties that I carry out in my current organization, expected and current CTC and some basic information required.

    The hiring team representative then explained the further interview process- venue, date and timing on which I should appear for the interview. It was mentioned that it would be a F-to-F interview with the Manager technology on my skill set and few more details that would help them to decide further. I asked if I need to brush any concepts in specific for the round, but it was mentioned that the questions will be on the acquired skill set and not much from outside.

    Interview day: My interview timing was at 3PM. The manager technology came all the way down from the top floor to take me as I will not be allowed without an ID check. We had a casual talk about the ID check process and the manager offered me if I may need a cup of water or coffee to grab before the interview starts ;) This was quite impressive as my previous organization (Sapient Corporation) is very much known for it's open culture! I felt the same culture there as well.

    Interview questions:

    1. Give a summary of your resume.
    2. Tel about your current project
    3. Which is the difficult situation that you have faced as a QA analyst and how did you overcome
    4. Who is a Business Analyst (Since I was more into a profile where there is a lot of interaction between me, QA Lead and BA)
    5. What are your soft skills

    Few more questions which were fully from my resume. It was the core base on which the whole interview was revolving. After a 45 min of interview, I was interviewed by a senior HR manager (along with the manager tech of previous round) who was asking about the following:

    1. Expected CTC
    2. Salary breakage in current org (I was not much clear of it as I thought i may get sometime before the HR type of questions. It is better to be clear on what type of package is provided in your current office- fixed or variable, how much is your expected breakage, how much was ur compensation, etc.)
    3. any questions for us?

    At the end, the HR said- on seeing the experience and the type of the work you have delivered, we are offering you a more of BA role that a QA analyst role. That made my day!

    As a whole the interview was so interactive and it was not like they were up to the question and nothing here-there. The interviewers were very casual and just wanted to know how exactly we present ourselves, how is our thought process, what is our expectations and how confident are we.

    I received my letter of intent after 1 week and I have been provided exactly what I asked for :) Sad part is, by that time I got a compensation hike in my company and could not negotiate much further. Beside all, the role which has been provided for me is Business Process Analyst and I am really happy for the role, since I have been trying more for BA role that QA analyst role though they had openings for both.

    And I hear very good reviews on the company and about the onsite opportunities that is offered. Looking forward to join the organization to provide my best.

    Wishing you all the best!

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bangalore
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was called for the interview on Saturday May 17th 2014.

    There was a huge line of people waiting for clearing the security checks. It took almost an hour for me to get the clearance after all the hic ups i went into interview room.

    It was directly one on one discussion with the technical panel.

    Panel started interviewing me with basic java question to advanced concepts. It was very challenging to clear this round. Later i was said i might have to join with in a month for which i agreed provided they issue me a offer with in a month. I was called again for another round of interview on May 19th 2014 where the same panel asked me some more java questions.

    On the same day I was said i have cleared all the technical rounds and will be receiving a offer letter soon.

    Its been more than a month now and am still waiting to receive my offer letter. HR keeps telling me they don't have an update from higher management. I really don't understand how can a HR answer so unreasonably.

    They are very unprofessional in there response and time lines. My salary discussion happened after 25 days of telling me that i have cleared the technical rounds.

    How long do you expect a candidate to wait for you ?
    How long does it take to process a candidature ?
    If you are not interested in providing a job why do you give false hope to candidates ?
    Its actually a case of of IPC 420 cheating and false hope which i can file in court ?

    When they said i have been selected i stopped taking calls from other consultancy and gave a stop for my job hunt. Truly frustrating experience and unreasonable responses received from JPMC.

    Guys if you are reading this and going to attend an interview with this company, Give it a thought if they can play so hopelessly with a guy outside company what would be your position when you join them.

    Attend the interview for experience but do not join them i tell you they screw up your future plans just by the name of interview.

    Being a multi billion $ company you should learn how to handle a candidature in the first place.

    Senior Java Developer Interview

    I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by job consultant and went to their office on weekend for face-to-face interview. The person I was supposed to meet was nowhere to be seen and the HR chose some random person and had him interview me. That person's behaviour was completely robotic. Had a list of questions in his mind and started asking those. All questions were Java knowledge based questions like write exception hierarchy, stuff like that. Few questions were weird and when I am asked him what is the answer he told me he himself doesn't know. That was kind of irresponsible of him to ask questions for which he did not have any answer. After the interview, I realised that no one had a clue for which team I was called in for and HR had assigned me to team which she thinks works on Java. That was kind of disappointing since I drive almost 1.5 hours for interview.
