J.P. Morgan - Video Interview Invitation Corporate & Investment Banking Summer Analyst

Rank: Senior Baboon | banana points 192

I just got offered a J.P. Morgan - Video Interview. What should I expect? This is what was stated in the email. "As mentioned previously, we would like to give you the opportunity to tell us more about yourself and invite you to record video responses to 3 questions."

Please let me know on how to proceed and on how to prepare. Do you know if they ask specific video interview questions? Do you have any general video interview tips? Something like a top 10 interview questions and answers list to the JP Morgan hirevue interview?

Thank you so much.

Investment Banking Video Interview Questions?

If you're at the video interview portion of your internship application process this most likely means you've passed the initial screen application screen (i.e., GPA) and phone interview. This video interview is likely the only thing standing between you and the Superday. And just like any other aspect of the application process, there are known details you should know and prepare for in advance.

In regards to the video interviews, the general consensus from the WSO Community suggests that the video interviews tend to have some similarities regardless of the firm you're applying to. The 2 main aspects you need to plan for are:

  1. The Video Interview Structure, and;
  2. The Questions

Hirevue and Yello Format

  • 3-4 Questions
  • 60 seconds to prepare your response
  • 60-90 seconds to deliver your response
  • A couple retakes to submit your video after reviewing your response
    The whole process should take somewhere between 20-30 min depending on the amount of time you use in the above steps.


Hirevue and Yello Questions

In regards to the questions, there is no list of known questions that you can plan for but there some topics that frequently come up. You can prepare for each by knowing some of the common questions that fall in each bucket. Having your answers to the below questions should definitely increase your chances of making it to the next round.

Behavioral

These questions tend to focus on your actions in the past. They look to assess how you have behaved in the past and whether or not you have the requisite skills and personality to succeed in the firm.

** Questions that prior video interviewees have been asked are

  • Why JPM?
  • Why IB?
  • Describe a situation where you had to collaborate with a difficult colleague
  • Give an example of how you've worked on a team.

Situational

These questions tend to focus on how you would behave in the future via a hypothetical situation. These questions will assess your problem solving ability and how you might handle difficult circumstances in the future.

**Questions you might run into

  • If you know your boss is 100% wrong about something how would you handle it?
  • Where do you see yourself in five years' time?
  • You have 10 minutes before you're due to give a presentation. What do you do?

Technical

Lastly, you have the technical questions. This is purely to assess your knowledge and/or intelligence. The questions can very from defining finance terminology, to current world events/market trends, or

** Questions you might run into

  • What's WACC and how do you calculate it?
  • Name me two companies that you think should consider merging. Why?
  • How would you value an established industrials company vs. a tech start-up? Why?
  • What's the Treasury Stock Method?
  • Why would you or would you not invest in Apple?
  • What is the Dow Jones Industrial Average/FTSE as of today's opening bell?
  • Walk me through a DCF

Aug 9, 2017

how so? were you unable to answer the trends?

Aug 9, 2017

I was good with trends and stuff but blanked out on discussing the major world event

Aug 9, 2017

I was asked to do a sale pitch...did you any question like that

Aug 9, 2017

Yes I did, and I did a stock pitch but it was god damn difficult pitching a stock in a minute and a half.

Aug 9, 2017

I hope they can evaluate the candidates based on the difficultly of the question...

Aug 9, 2017

I am pretty sure I am not getting a call back for markets. I am positive about my IBD

Aug 9, 2017

Difficulty *

Aug 20, 2017

were the trends questions open-ended as in your could talk about anything of interest to you? or were you given specific topics?

Aug 9, 2017

Can confirm, markets was not behavioral at all. Very focused on markets...it'll be interesting to see this play out.

Aug 8, 2017

What did everyone wear for it? I'm planning on wearing a suit but just wanted to make sure

    • 1
Aug 8, 2017

I wore typical computer interview attire - suit top and my boxers

    • 17
Aug 8, 2017

amen

Boxers? I was freeballin on my office chair.

    • 9
Aug 10, 2017

I wore a suit, button down white shirt, slacks, and no tie.

Aug 15, 2017

At target school event, head recruiter said to wear the same as you would for an in person interview. So, birthday suit?

Aug 9, 2017

clearly theres a mess up then, a lot of my buddies and I got behavioral and one news related question. What did you guys get.

Aug 9, 2017

If it say to do it by the 10th, does that mean it's do today at midnight EST?

    • 1
Aug 9, 2017

I would think its due anytime tomorrow

    • 1
Aug 9, 2017

since it says, not later than the 10th.

its not saying before the 10th

Aug 9, 2017

To confirm we are fine doing it tomorrow, August 10th, in the morning correct?

Aug 10, 2017

lol yes im doing all of my hirevues this afternoon after work

anyone know anything about Global Treasury Management, behavioral or technical?

"The Truth is like poetry -- and most people fucking hate poetry"

Aug 9, 2017

I did both Global Treasury Management and markets, GTM was more behavioral

Aug 9, 2017

About to do mine for GTM and Markets, any tips?

Aug 9, 2017

based off this discussion, know your world events/ market trends

"The Truth is like poetry -- and most people fucking hate poetry"

Aug 9, 2017

idk what that even is sorry

Aug 9, 2017

I wanted to ask, how many of you are rising sophomores?

Oct 9, 2017

I am a rising sophomore and got the invite

Aug 9, 2017

I am rising sophomore at non target and got invite

Aug 10, 2017

Rising soph at target, got invite

Aug 9, 2017

Anyone do Risk?

    • 1
Aug 9, 2017

I did

Aug 9, 2017

I did, i got 2 behaviorals and a technical

Aug 22, 2017

any of you guys get emails yet about next round?

Aug 9, 2017

I just finished my video interview and can confirm questions were all behavioral. Not too difficult

    • 1
Aug 9, 2017

I have a hunch that sophomores get behavioral interviews, and juniors get technicals.

edit: I mean for markets only

Aug 9, 2017

can any juniors confirm this?

Aug 9, 2017

Junior here - was all behavioral for IBD

    • 1
Aug 9, 2017

About to complete mine, were your questions the same as the ones listed about on the thread? Why JPM? Why IB? Tell me about a time...?

Aug 9, 2017

Verbatim

Aug 9, 2017

Thank you:)

Aug 9, 2017

Can you confirm this since you just did your interview? Thanks!

Aug 9, 2017

yes very similar, youre right on

Aug 9, 2017

Highly doubt this. I think the only twist is in the division you're applying for.

Aug 9, 2017

Not true, rising sophomore in CIB and I get some pretty market related questions.

Aug 9, 2017

What does the application window look like after you submitted the interview? Mine read "incomplete application" and I was concerned.

Aug 9, 2017

Did you have any papers or anything out during your video interview?

Aug 9, 2017

Would this cause an incomplete app?

Aug 9, 2017

It says Application in Review

Aug 9, 2017

the whole yello platform is very buggy. My videos failed to load in the end and I had to redo the whole thing. I guess I got extra 3 tries :/

    • 1
Aug 10, 2017

When i went to review my videos they wouldn't play, but I could tell that they recorded because I could jump around to different parts and see stills. So i have no idea if my audio was recorded but oh well, it submitted :/

Aug 9, 2017

.

Aug 9, 2017

I had S&T questions, and I had 4 questions not 3. I can also confirm that you get 90 seconds to answer each, with 60 seconds in between each to prep and you can view your response. I had two news related question, a question about the market, and a behavioral. For some reason mine really seemed to be honed into how much I knew about global and domestic news on finance... maybe because im not a business major

Aug 9, 2017

Did everyone just get a "return to homepage" or some link like that after finishing the interviews? I didnt get an email or anything confirming that I completed the video interviews and wondering if thts normal

    • 1
Aug 9, 2017

that is normal. I did not get that either. all I got when I submitted was a white check mark in a green bubble pop up indicating my submission was accepted

    • 1
Aug 11, 2017

I didn't see this... When I submitted my video, the video interview page was automatically closed and went back to the homepage.. then I saw the invitation link disappeared. I'm worried if mine was submitted successfully

Aug 11, 2017

no i would assume it did. Especially if after you completed it would not let you back into the video interview

Aug 10, 2017

yeah got no confirmation email. on my yello portal, is says application in review

Aug 11, 2017

i just got a green check

so far, no technicals for IBD only s&t?

    • 1
Aug 10, 2017

Not sure how its possible but I fucked up my Global Treasury Management interview way more than Markets

Aug 10, 2017

how badly did u fuck up? were the questions harder

Aug 17, 2017

what was GTM like?

Aug 10, 2017

Anyone know how long it has taken in previous years to know results about the next round after the video interview especially for IBD? A couple of weeks maybe?

Aug 10, 2017

Any tips for Global Treasury Management? Did risk earlier, 2 behaviorals and 1 on current events.

Aug 17, 2017

did you do GTM yet? what were the questions like?

Aug 10, 2017

Ok, let's say I fucked up and only submitted the app last weekend... yello says "application complete," rather than under review. Any estimates on when the next round of Hirevues is likely to be out?
Edit: never mind, just got it

Aug 10, 2017

did your application status change after submission?

Aug 10, 2017

Ever since I submitted it it's stayed as application completed

Sep 22, 2017

Mine is the same, still application completed, did you change later?

Aug 10, 2017

Did anyone get an email reminding them to do the video interview but already submitted it???? SOS

Aug 10, 2017

That's weird because I haven't submitted it but haven't gotten that email lmfao

Aug 10, 2017

same

Aug 10, 2017

I just got the invite for CIB - Risk. My video isn't due until the 16? Anyone else already do this? Behavioral or technical?

"It is not our circumstance that controls us, but our thoughts that control our circumstance." -James Allen

Aug 10, 2017

Same! Anyone have the specifics? I heard 2 behavioral and 1 markets but anything specific would be much appreciated!

Aug 10, 2017

Yeah I heard that too but I'm not sure if that's for this specific SA program.. PM me if you find any more info! Will be spending the weekend preparing..

"It is not our circumstance that controls us, but our thoughts that control our circumstance." -James Allen

Aug 11, 2017

Mine isn't due until the 16th either, but I got the video invite for the Winning Women fall program

Aug 10, 2017

Three behavioral questions
- Why JPM/IB?
- Something about working as a team
- Something about decision making

You get 1 minute and 30 seconds to answer, with 60 seconds to prepare for each of the three takes per question. At the end you can review all your answers. Pretty straightforward. Kinda awkward. Application status now says under review.

    • 5
Aug 10, 2017

Is this the one due on the 10th?

Aug 10, 2017

was this CIB Risk or CIB IB?

"It is not our circumstance that controls us, but our thoughts that control our circumstance." -James Allen

Aug 10, 2017

risk is under ib umbrella

Aug 10, 2017

yes, but the questions may be different between risk and IB and this is what i'm asking

"It is not our circumstance that controls us, but our thoughts that control our circumstance." -James Allen

Aug 10, 2017

isnt risk under risk management? I went to an info session for CIB Risk and it was just risk management

Aug 10, 2017

I'm confused by your question. Yes, Risk is under Risk Management. The Video Interview invite I got is for the "2018 Corporate and Investment Bank Risk Management Summer Analyst Program" AKA CIB - Risk.

Because the program falls under banking I am just wondering if there are any Risk specific questions. I saw that S&T had more technicals and a question based on current markets. Just curious if there's anything particular to the risk interview vid!

"It is not our circumstance that controls us, but our thoughts that control our circumstance." -James Allen

Aug 10, 2017

They asked you to answer why JPM and banking in one question? wtf

    • 1
Aug 10, 2017

Yup I found it really hard to get a complete answer out in a minute and thirty seconds without sounding rushed

    • 1
Aug 10, 2017

Yeah, that's really stupid. My why banking answer alone is 1.5 min, thanks for the heads up

Aug 10, 2017

These 3 questions are for IBD. I can confirm. But some confirm with me the risk questions?!

Aug 10, 2017

.

Aug 10, 2017

Submitted app a week ago, got email for vid interview today. CIB- IB, due the 16th for me. Anyone else in the same boat?

Aug 11, 2017

yup

Aug 13, 2017

same here

Aug 14, 2017

Same here

Aug 10, 2017

Was planning on doing my video submissions for IB and S&T when I got home later today...but currently my yello portal says I have no interviews scheduled? I checked a couple days ago and the two invites were there, anyone else having a similar problem? Is the JPM yello portal always this glitchy? Kinda nervous because they are due today

Aug 10, 2017

Had the same issue. If you have another Yello account with a separate email address, you probably used that one to sign in. Make sure the email address they sent the invite to is the one you're using to sign in with. You should see it then.

    • 1
Aug 10, 2017

check on the right, there should be an "enter video interview room"

Aug 10, 2017

Anyone here back from AM?

Aug 10, 2017

Not yet, I think the timeline is going to be much slower than IB and S&T

Aug 10, 2017

yeah AM is the slowest - IB is usually fastest

Aug 10, 2017

I also applied to AM/WM for Sophomores and that is still "Application Complete" - not under review yet. Not sure if this is relevant if you're asking as a rising junior but I can +1 that AM/WM is going to be later.

"It is not our circumstance that controls us, but our thoughts that control our circumstance." -James Allen

Aug 10, 2017

Wait so the Corporate & Investment Bank Investment Banking Summer Analyst Program had three questions? But Why Investment Banking and Why JP Morgan were one question?

Aug 10, 2017

yes

University of Chicago

Aug 10, 2017

yes

Aug 10, 2017

yello video interview was a bit glitchy - recorded an answer then it froze, so had to refresh the whole thing

Aug 11, 2017

This is a pre-screening interview... with the most standardized questions you'll ever get throughout the process, it's not as if we don't already have a good idea on intro questions. it's more to see if questions are randomized or not. don't get your panties in a bunch.

    • 4
Aug 11, 2017

shut up

    • 9
Aug 11, 2017

For those of you whose application says "application in review", was your status changed to "in review" after the video submission or when you initially got the interview invitation?

Aug 11, 2017

Says application in review for me.

Aug 11, 2017

Was in review before I did the video submission

Aug 11, 2017

what is the likelihood a sophomore gets into the CIB IB program?

Aug 11, 2017

less than 1% for the sophomore program - it is incredibly small

Aug 11, 2017

Hmm...what about a sophomore into the "junior" CIB IB program? or is that what you meant?

Aug 11, 2017

you won't get into the junior one. you realize there's a sophomore one

Aug 11, 2017

yeah, but I'm non diversity..

Aug 11, 2017

don't remember it being diversity. saw white kids make it lol

Aug 11, 2017

can't be, maybe they changed. Now it says: "Our Sophomore Development Fellowship offers second-year university students, who self-identify as Black, Hispanic or Native American, a path to a successful career in financial services. This intensive program will develop your technical and professional skills, build your network across our firm, and provide you with our colleagues and leaders as mentors."

Aug 11, 2017

Just realized today I got an invitation that had gone to my spam folder for some reason...there's still a link available to submit, do you think its a deal breaker to submit a day late??

Aug 11, 2017

Just wonder who's gonna review those video interviews? by HR or analyst from your school?

Aug 13, 2017

I believe it's analysts, from your school if you go to a target.

Aug 13, 2017

What if I go to non-target?

Aug 13, 2017

I believe there is a team for non targets that will review all those submissions.

Aug 24, 2017

I think it's more senior ranking than that - mostly associates I think

** 8/23 Edit: It's senior analysts that do this**

Aug 12, 2017

when did u do the video interview

Aug 12, 2017

August 8th.

Aug 12, 2017

Any updates on superdays?

Aug 13, 2017

Assuming first or second week of September.

Aug 13, 2017

Does anyone know if there is a way to update your resume on a submitted JP Morgan application, or is that not an option?

Array

Aug 13, 2017

email hr

Aug 14, 2017

you have the option to update everything in the application, including uploading a new resume on the portal up until it switches to "application in review," which is when you get the video invite

Aug 13, 2017

Anyone applied to multiple positions but only heard back from some of them? I got one for Markets but not IBD or anything from HK office.

Aug 18, 2017

Pretty sure in HK you only get BB ibd interviews if you're the son of a politician/string puller

Aug 13, 2017

In my interview I cited wanting to work in a specific group (MT). Was this a mistake?

Aug 14, 2017

ye

    • 2
Aug 15, 2017

Why?

Aug 15, 2017

Well for starters no one respects MT. That's the first mistake. Second, well if you have to ask..

Aug 14, 2017

also guys I know it's weird and awkward to record yourself and watch yourself talk in front of a camera, but it honestly does help -- you can immediately see and correct habits (i.e. not holding eye contact with the screen, saying too many "ums, uhs, etc.). On the subject of ums/uhs, pauses sound better than fillers -- it won't sound better when you're recording, but when you play it back it'll make a noticeable difference. just some thoughts I took down when I was practicing, good luck!

    • 3
Aug 15, 2017

Anyone know when we will start to hear back? Did mine a week ago

Aug 15, 2017

I dont think we'll here back until at the very least next week. I'm assuming the super day for this round is first/second week of September so I'd think they'd do more towards the end of August.

Aug 15, 2017

Does anyone know if the questions are still the same for the round of video interviews due on the Wednesday, August 16th? And can we assume that we can submit on the day of the 16th, or does everything have to be done before Wednesday?

Aug 15, 2017

Yea, mine was due for the 16th and the q's are still the same. I assume you're applying for banking?
Not sure the exact time they're due though, I'd do it today just to be safe (time zones, internet outages, etc.)

Aug 15, 2017

Yeah I'm applying for banking as well. Thank god the questions are still the same. Thanks man, looks like I'll do the questions today.

Aug 15, 2017

I'm Risky AF but thinking it's by 11:59 PM Eastern time. Will give myself some time and finish by 11:58.

Aug 16, 2017

Can confirm - same 3 behavioral questions. If you have the 8/16 deadline you're good until 11:59pm tonight.

Best of luck!

Aug 17, 2017

any insight on what the GTM questions were?

Aug 18, 2017

just did the GTM video interview. harder than expected but not horrible

Aug 18, 2017

first superday is Sept 8

Aug 18, 2017

did you hear back from JPM or is this from a contact?

Aug 18, 2017

JPM recruiter told/invited me. but i'm s&t

Aug 18, 2017

Is your portal changed?

    • 1
Aug 18, 2017

Aug 19, 2017

Congrats! I'm S&T and haven't heard anything since the video interview :/

Aug 21, 2017

When did you submit your app/do first rounds?

Aug 20, 2017

3.7 GPA, Rising Sophomore from an ivy league target school

  • I applied around 10 days ago to CIB and still have not gotten a hirevue video invite, do you think this means I'm out?
    • 1
Aug 20, 2017

If you're still allowed to edit your app at this point that means your application has not been reviewed yet. I got my video interview 2 weeks after I submitted my app.

Aug 20, 2017

I can't edit my app since it says "Application in Review" but ill wait another week and see where I'm at. Thank you!

Aug 20, 2017

I applied a week ago, 3.6 at semi target and haven't gotten it yet. I think they do it in waves. Everyone who already got it seems to have applied in July.

Aug 20, 2017

Maybe they are doing juniors first? I'm in a similar situation

Aug 21, 2017

I'm also a rising sophomore, I got my hirevue about 2 weeks after I sent in my app, I would wait a little longer, maybe two or three days, don't think you are out yet.

Aug 30, 2017

I got my invitation two days after sending in my application. it seems pretty random

Aug 20, 2017

Anyone else get an email that their application is getting screened?

Aug 20, 2017

yup

Aug 20, 2017

Yeap same here! Anyone know when we will hear back?

Aug 20, 2017

Do you mean you got a Yello invite? I'm surprised they're sending out emails over the weekend

Aug 20, 2017

nope - its a follow up email saying that your app is being screened - i completed my two video screens a week ago

    • 2
Aug 20, 2017

Oh wow that's fast. I completed mine 2 weeks ago and haven't heard back...which divisions did you do?

Aug 20, 2017

I haven't received the screen email. Did they send this email after video interview?

Aug 20, 2017

A week and some change after the interview. I did hirevues for Markets and GTM

Aug 20, 2017

I never heard back from JPM after the video interview... What does the email say??

Aug 20, 2017

Very unexciting.
"Thank you for your application to JPMorgan Chase.

We are excited you are considering an opportunity with us. Please know that your application is in the process of being screened in order to assess your professional skills and suitability for the position. Please note, we receive a large volume of applications and are dedicated to screening each one. As decisions are made we will notify you directly. Thank you for your patience."

Aug 21, 2017

Got as well, anyone have insight?

Aug 21, 2017

Yep this is the same email I got. I went from thinking it was a rejection after reading the first line then once I saw excited I thought it may be an invitation to another interview.

Aug 25, 2017

Contacted someone at the firm then got the same email.

Aug 21, 2017

Weird, I completed the video interview for IBD a week ago, but I did not receive any email.

Aug 21, 2017

Yeah same with me I do not have anything yet.

Aug 21, 2017

I received it today, so probably just sending out the update email in waves

Aug 21, 2017

Just received mine as well!

Aug 22, 2017

Do you guys think that email is a good sign or a bad sign??

Aug 22, 2017

Had a dream everyone got email invite to superday lol

Aug 22, 2017

Could the email automatically be sent when they watch your video interview?

I'm thinking that could be what it is. Would make sense given the school teams view them, which are all at different times.

GENIUS. lol actually though I think you're right. I applied a month ago, got a phone interview, then the video one (completed by the 10th), and now I'm waiting to hear back.
