Very Easy Interview

Branch Manager Interview

Branch Manager

I applied through other source and the process took 5 days - interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

Interview Details As an internal candidate the decision is communicated to you before you actually get the position. So you should be very aware if it is going to happen or not. If you haven't had the decision communicated to you by the DM, its not going to happen.

Interview Question – All questions easy   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation, it is just an offer - accept or decline.

Branch Manager Interview

Branch Manager
Denver, CO (US)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in November 2010.

Interview Details 1 interview with a panel of 12 District Managers. Intimidating YES. They are trying to see if all parties agree that they are willing to have you in their district. They must have more than half of the District Managers say yes to offer a position.

Interview Question – All questions were typical for the position, situational is there style of question, tell me about a time when you had to break policy to help a customer? what was the situation? what was the outcome?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Chase really does not like to negotiate at all. you have a much better chance if you are coming from outside the firm but as I was an internal candidate there was no potential for negotiation. If fact my manager has retracted offers to multiple people trying to negotiate. Right now companies can afford to hire less expensive with the same or better quality.

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in May 2013.

Interview Details Connected with Chase by meeting a recruiter at a job fair. After a brief discussion of my skills and giving the recruiter a resume, I departed with recruiter's contact information. No word for 2 weeks and I sent a followup email and was invited to interview. The one-on-one interview was with a District Manager. Why do you want to work in the banking industry? What's your leadership style?

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you had a conflict with a coworker.   Answer Question

Branch Manager

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

Interview Question – What is an item you can't live without? and sell me that item.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I did not want to work at a branch located within a Kroger or Wal-Mart
