New JP Morgan SA 2020 Thread

Ok, so the other thread got cluttered with people begging/selling hirevue questions (250+ comments on that alone), so I've created a new thread where we actually talk about general JPM 2020 SA stuff.

Does this bypass the hirevue/pymetrics? Worried about not getting past the computer when I have higher ups who want to help me out?

Jun 24, 2019 - 1:26pm

I'm pretty sure the next wave of hirevues hasn't been sent out yet. I got mine in the bulk that was sent out on the 14th so you will probably get it in the coming weeks.

Pretty sure its done in rounds. Everyone that applied to USA IBD the earliest got a Hirevue June 14. I'm assuming JPM will review these hirevues before proceeding to the next group of people.

I applied to market trading, market research, and investment banking, all at NYC, on June 17. I received the trading hirevue two days later and the research hirevue three days later. I have not yet received a hirevue for IB one week later.

Jun 24, 2019 - 10:08am

Same here. Applied to Market Research, Asset Management and Investment Banking. Did the pymetrics and received hirevue for Market Research on June 20th (applied but haven't heard anything from Investment Banking as of yet and applied to both June 16th). Anyone else have a similar situation? Would love to hear your guys' timelines and where y'all stand in this as well.

Jun 24, 2019 - 10:16am

Applied on June 10th to IB, AM, and RE. Received hirevue for IB on the 14th, and app currently shows "Under Consideration." Haven't received hirevues for AM or RE, but did pymetrics for all. AM shows "Application Received," last updated on the 10th, and RE shows "Application Reviewed," last updated on the 19th.

I watched the JPM Corporate & Investment Banking SA webinar last week and was told that there is a 4-6 week review process after the HireVue and that the superday happens in September. Not sure about the timeline for earlier/later superdays. This was for the JPM CIB NY office.

Jun 24, 2019 - 9:38pm

A recruiter told me to expect the first wave at the beginning of July.

You need to do separate hirevues for each division that you apply for I believe - that being said I haven't received a hirevue for all of the positions I've applied for so can't be 100% sure

Anyone hear anything for Calgary? I completed hirevue, and it says "Under consideration", but was updated after the hirevue was completed. Last update was the 21st. Do they even do superdays for Calgary offices?

Jun 25, 2019 - 11:12am

From my understanding (taken from what people have said above), there are no phone screenings and superdays will take place in July or later, however no one has been contacted yet. I'm in the same position with "Under consideration" for NY IB, but other applications show "Application received" or "Application reviewed." I'd say July at the earliest we would start hearing back, but probably more toward August and September.

Jul 3, 2019 - 4:34pm

I'm also applying to Calgary, how long after your application and pymetrics did you get the Hirevue? I only completed the pymetrics on Sunday which admittedly I should've done earlier, but I haven't gotten a Hirevue yet which is worrying me a bit since I thought everyone got one. Do you know if they send them out in waves?

Jun 25, 2019 - 2:42pm

When you applied for IB, did you guys have different applications for different locations? I just applied with one application and thought we just rank our location preferences.

Jun 26, 2019 - 8:44am

Yes - I as well as some other individuals in a thread discussed how this was super misleading and can lead to people thinking that they hadn't submitted properly; from what I understand, though, I think seeing that screen is no indication of not having properly submitted so you should be fine

Jun 27, 2019 - 11:01am

No time limit but if you wait until they send the next batch of hirevues you've basically screwed yourself over, Admissions are rolling so if you wait too long you kick yourself back a round.

For the people who have done the hirevue for IB, was there a question that involved discussing a recent deal or was it all behavioral and fit?

Jun 28, 2019 - 10:18am

Anyone applied to NY and London? Do you have to do separate Pymetrics for both applications?


Aug 8, 2019 - 10:26am

Maybe a bit late now but... 1 Pymetrics per applicant (for all applications) and each position has a different HireVue even if you are applying to the same position, just different locations. Hope this helps!

Spoke with a JPM analyst in NY yesterday. He told me they had just finished the training process for reviewing HireVues, and nothing has been looked at yet. I'm assuming they will move forward with reviews within the next week

Jun 28, 2019 - 3:53pm

Good intel, +1. Any chance he said anything about how they will do the rounds of superdays/in what order Hirevues are reviewed? i.e. will they look at all completed hirevues and give superdays in no formal order when they start, or will they start with people who did it in the first round, then second round, etc etc.

I believe the last updated date is the day you completed your Hirevue. I submitted my Hirevue on the 29th and that is the last updated date for me.

Jun 30, 2019 - 9:51am

I submitted on 6/21 and received it on 6/28, rising sophomore

Jul 2, 2019 - 1:19pm

Hey guys, received a hirevue around a week ago and have been sitting on it because I was hoping to talk to more FT analysts about the position before fully submitting my app. Do you guys think its wise to wait and speak with people first?

It seems as though JPM is trying to push the recruiting process away from a solely networking prospective, where you get an advantage for reaching out to many people. From what you guys have heard either first or second hand, what do you guys think about this? Also, do you think it's bad to sit on a hirevue for longer than x amount of time?

Thanks, and good luck everyone!

Jul 2, 2019 - 1:33pm

I talked to an analyst last week and she said JPM is trying to reduce the amount of pull people in the firm have in getting people moving forward in the process so there is definitely a reduced emphasis on connections. I think having connections at VP level or above are really the only things that can make a really significant impact at this point but someone should correct me if they have heard otherwise. I have heard that if you sit on the hirevue for too long after you received it you will be grouped into the next batch of hirevue recipients as the applications are rolling.

Have you guys received any confirmation after completing pymetrics? I completed them on 30th, no confirmation, no hirevue invite and status at "application received". I meet all the requirements, such as GPA/graduation date + target

Jul 9, 2019 - 12:23pm

I applied for IBD, Trading and Research all in London, only got IBD and Research hirevues
