    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (Columbus, OH (US)).

    Interview

    Applied through my school's career website. On-campus interview requested around a few weeks later. I selected the earliest interview slot because I would rather be first or last in the interview lineup. It was 30 minute interview with a mix of behavioral and technical questions. I received an email a few days later that decisions of moving on will be sent in a week. In a week, I received a notification that I was selected for their Super Day. Super Day was on a Friday from 1:30pm-3:30pm. Most of us got in at 1pm and were able to talk to current analysts. The interview was split into three 30 minute parts: two behavioral/technical interviews and a presentation about a project you completed in the past. The order is random, but I got a sit down talk, presentation, and another sit down. The sit down talks are both behavioral/technical. The presentation was me talking for 15 minutes and the other 15 for questions. Got an email 4 days later with the job offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 8+ monthsinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    They reached out for an interview with me. They had one date open during which I had a conflict and they only gave me a two week notice before it. I was no able to make that interview. Took me calling their Technology Analyst Program HR members approximately 8 times to receive a call back for them notifying me that they were no longer seeking candidates for this position. They contacted me for an interview and basically dropped the ball and had the worst communication I have ever seen from a well established company. This was an absolutely horrendous job by their HR department.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    1. Online Application

    2. Two face to face Interviews - 1 Technical & 1 Competency Based.

    3. Assessment Centre - Written Exercise, Technical Interview, Competency Based Interview, Group Exercise - Group Discussion, Written Exercise, Small interview.

    Overall positive experience. Key is to be confident throughout and radiate positivity and enthusiasm.

    There is nothing much one can do to prepare for the Assessment Centre as its an extremely tailored exercise. Brushing up key concepts such as data structures, object oriented programming, software development life cycle and methodologies before all the interviews may come in handy. Knowing about the company, it's businesses and familiarising yourself with the company website is equally important.

    Also checking online resources for tips on preparing for group exercises are helpful. I would strongly recommend going through all the reviews relating to your position on Glassdoor as it gave me a clearer picture regarding the entire process and nothing came as a surprise to me on the D-Day.
