Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at J.P. Morgan.

Interview Details

They have preferred placement vendors; who will test you over and above, what is required for the role. (eg) They pay for couple online exams for DBA, etc.,
Then the manager and few team members invited for telephone interview, in which they went over my resume and asked technical questions based on the skills: RDBMS, Unix, Windows, Shell scripting, Business Objects, etc.,
Then the vendor arranged for an in person interview.

Interview Questions
  • In person interview gave me the surprise, that the job was for application support and not really DBA. :) Same manager and team members, explained the job role.
    Two more managers from different teams, interviewed me individually, pretty much intended to check the attitude, to fit the company culture.
    Overall my interview was not tough.

    Interview Details

    Process involves a lot of networking, both with your school's alumni base and with people in the group you're interested in. It is almost impossible to get into the bank if you don't come from a target school or don't find alumni who will push you through.

    Interview Questions
    • Variety of technical questions - Walk me through a DCF, Qualities of a good LBO, etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Coming through the MBA recruiting process there is very little negotiation. You come in with a class of 60-80 other MBAs all at the same salary/signing bonus/start date

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    First round has both technical and situational types of questions. Second round was basically random talk with interviewers, and exchange views about current economy and investment etc. Most of our interviews are based on competency, so be prepared to think on your feet. Also, be prepared to answer questions about previous jobs and your experience solving problems and leading teams. Take the time to think before you answer.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at J.P. Morgan in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    This was a first round interview made in a target business school for a summer associate position. Unfortunately it seems that the process was extremely biased and decision had been made prior of the interview. We only got 15 minutes of time to pitch ourselves, tell why banking, and ask questions. There were presumptions made already about me even before I entered, which might be because I am an international candidate. I got cut in the middle of a question and received even less than the 15 minutes of allocated time since the interviewer was running behind her schedule.

    The interview process at JP Morgan was very well run and very informative and helps understanding the different aspects of the jobs and requirements. I appreciated the great interaction with the different people that I met and the sense of teamwork that I got. The work balance in these jobs is a real challenge and I was pleased that it was not concealed at the time that I interviewed.
