    Oracle Database Lead Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  London, England
    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied on the J.P.Morgan portal, heard back from the hiring manager after a couple of weeks with details of a telephone interview with her colleague in NY. I thought it well and received another call from her team a week later to attend in London a face to face meeting.
    Interview took place in a break out area which was a little odd as other people were meeting around us. Interview was unstructured. A few technical oracle questions could have been answered better by myself. The hiring manager promised to call me the following week. I sent a thank you email knowing the restrictions in the company about sending emails to personal accounts.

    Followed up with a couple more emails and left two voice messages but she never got back to me with any feedback. The time & cost of travel wasn't cheap, a courtesy call would have been greatly appreciated even if they weren't taking my application any further.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too taxing but the dba started right at the beginning of my CV asking technical questions from 25 years ago which was very unexpected and threw me and used up most of his time going over things that were largely irrelevant and didn't get to the latest work I had done   Answer Question

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  London, England
    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    3 interviews, 1 with hiring manager, 6 with their colleagues including MDs, PMs, VPs, Head of Research. Most questions were nice chats about investment style, strategy, holding period in current job, approaches, how stock selection is done and on what criteria. Interviews too approximately 5 hours. The last round was a presentation which I didn't get to do reason being my weak analytical skills (which was rather a misunderstanding I think as I believe for most part they are fine and performance is there to prove it) and investment style (always thought the style is taken over as you join the firm but I think they are looking for a very specific person there).

    Interview Questions
    • Describe why you would set a specific cost of equity for a bank in specific region when using GGM / have absolutely full understanding of valuation process theory.   View Answer

    Executive Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  London, England
    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer was not very interested in describing the position and the firm, but started with very detailed questions on my previous career path, up to 12 years ago. He wrote down exactly when I had been promoted to analyst, associate, VP etc, which seemed to me quite unusual. His attitude was overall a bit unfriendly.
