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.

For people who got phone screens how long approx did this occur after Hirevue?

Jun 21, 2019

I saw in the previous chat that there isnt a phone screen. Not sure how accurate that is

Jun 21, 2019

Wait what??? So its hirevue -> superday bruh...

Jun 22, 2019

I can confirm that there will be no phone screens for NY, not sure about other offices.

How far does a referral from a VP get you? A guaranteed superday?

Jun 21, 2019

Yes

Jun 22, 2019

Depends if they are on recruiting team or not, but leaning towards a guranteed superday. Perhaps find out who the staffer is (tends to be a Senior Assoc/1st Yr VP who will step away from his/her job to staff interns/group for the summer)

Jun 22, 2019

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 22, 2019

Did not even get hirevue fuck me

Jun 25, 2019

Sorry to hear that man... most likely means you didn't make the GPA cut off. try networking with a VP or higher, as they may be able to push your resume through. can't hurt to try

Jul 6, 2019

Did you get the pymetrics? I got pymetrics but no hirevue, unsure what to think

Jun 22, 2019

yes I think everyone gets pymetrics

Jun 22, 2019

Submitted my applications for LDN and AMS.
Did not receive a HireVue/pymetrics test yet.

Anyone else here that applied to any of the two offices?

Jun 22, 2019

I applied to LDN around June 15th. Received Hirevue like 4 days later. Haven't received Hirevue for New York though.

Jun 24, 2019

Did you get pymetrics assessment before hirevue?

Jun 22, 2019

Applied for both. Got both HirveVue/Pymetrics. You may have applied too late because apps are rolling

What the hell, that's crazy. Can't imagine them being so early with recruiting for the LDN and AMS offices...

Jun 22, 2019

Haven't received Hirevue for NY. Applied on June 15th but edited my application about 3 days ago. Anyone still waiting for NY hirevue?

Jun 24, 2019

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.

    • 2
Jun 22, 2019

Thanks man!

Jun 24, 2019

I applied on the 14th and got a HireVue on the 20th for what it's worth. You might've missed the next wave cut off by a day.

Does anyone if the hirevue for markets -trading is the same as markets - sales?

Jun 24, 2019

I did the hirevue for trading and research and can confirm they are the same.

Jun 22, 2019

How long does it take for the HireVue to come after the pymetrics assessment?

Jun 21, 2019

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.

Jun 24, 2019

I applied and got pymetrics no hirevue. Why?

Jun 24, 2019

either didn't meet the GPA requirements or it'll be sent in the next wave

Jun 24, 2019

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

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

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.

Jun 24, 2019

Update: Received hirevue 6/25 after submitting resume&application 6/16

Jun 22, 2019

One thing I do find peculiar is this:
https://gyazo.com/aadc84f56c005df7c8d3c3fa474de8c7
Just like last year when I applied, I still see this screen even after submitting the application.
Did receive a confirmation email though... so I guess its normal.

Jun 24, 2019

Can confirm its hirevue --> pymetrics --> superday

Jun 24, 2019

Any idea when we should expect to hear back about superday?

Jun 24, 2019

Honestly no clue but if I had to take a guess it's late August early September because that's what Goldman is doing as well

Jul 15, 2019

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

Has anyone heard anything from MS? I submitted hirevue almost a month ago now and still nothing

Jun 24, 2019

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

Jun 22, 2019

Are you talking about JP?

Jun 25, 2019

anyone know if hirevue is same across all divisions or you need to do separate interviews for each position? Also anyone know the questions?

Jun 24, 2019

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

Jun 25, 2019

what hirevue have you completed?

Jun 25, 2019

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 24, 2019

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.

    • 2
Jun 28, 2019

So from my understanding, the earliest superdays will be in July?

Jul 3, 2019

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

A day or two I think, but its coming in waves (like me) so you will probably be in the next batch

Jun 25, 2019

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 24, 2019

Just one application. I've been saying NY-pref because that's what I put as my 1st option. I don't think there are different hirevues for the different location, however.

Jun 25, 2019

Is Hirevue invite dependent on when you applied or did the tests? I applied like a week or so ago but completed the tests on the 22nd. Should I heard back in the next wave?

Jun 24, 2019

Probably the next wave. I think the 19th or 20th was the cutoff. They're probably doing it once a week or so.

Jun 25, 2019

Ok phew

Just received asset management hirevue. Applied first day apps opened. Seems like they prioritized sending out IB stuff first

Not sure it's very clever to give others the questions so they can prepare better than you or some next level Machiavellian strategy so that people sound too scripted.

Applied on June 9th for NY. Got email to do pymetrics right away. Got email to do hireview June 14th.

Jun 22, 2019

https://gyazo.com/aadc84f56c005df7c8d3c3fa474de8c7
Anyone else see this page even after submitting the app?

Jun 24, 2019

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 25, 2019

how much time can you wait to do the hirevue usually?

Jun 24, 2019

There was no limit specified in the email -- I know MS gives you 48 hours from the time you get the email

Jun 21, 2019

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.

Jun 27, 2019

Has anyone who applied to the wealth management SA for NY received a hirevue yet?

Jul 10, 2019

I just received one today. I applied for the Private Bank specifically

Jun 24, 2019

I also got my WM hirevue today

Jun 27, 2019

Thanks, I received mine as well

Jul 10, 2019

I received one on 7/1. It's for the Latam region tho.

Jun 28, 2019

Anyone know the process after hirevue for London?

Jun 24, 2019

Also interested.. Have you already received hirevue for london? If yes, is it for IB?

Jun 28, 2019

Yeah I actually already did my IB hirevue a week ago. If they screen CVs before I'm actually surprised because compared to some people on here I don't have quite the comparable experience.

Jun 28, 2019

Any way to prepare for the pymetrics?

Jun 28, 2019

you literally can't prepare - it's just some games don't worry

Jun 21, 2019

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?

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

I applied to IBD Amsterdam and London and got separate pymetrics, so I assume the same goes for you.

    • 1
Jun 28, 2019

Same, did you also have to do a separate interview? Because they just emailed to do the interview although I thought for the same division your interview is used by all locations.

Made a mistake. Apparently you can only do 1 pymetrics and not 1 per application/office.

Jun 28, 2019

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

He also confirmed that the process is HireVue --> Super Day invite
He didn't know anything about the date of the super day, and he sounded like it hasnt even been planned yet

    • 6
Jun 25, 2019

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.

Jul 2, 2019

I applied really early and am still under consideration updated July 1. Any clues when super day invites are out?

Jun 28, 2019

Any one know when the earliest superdays would be?

Jun 28, 2019

Please, does anyone know. For international applicants, will we be sponsored for superday if it's hirevue -> Superday?

Jul 1, 2019

Superdays are all paid by JPM including flights and hotels. But I am pretty sure if you are applying for a position outside of country you get video interview instead of superday.

My application for IB says "Under Consideration" but last updated 6/28 and I submitted on the 18th

Jun 28, 2019

In the same situation.

Jun 21, 2019

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

That's what i'm saying it was further updated as I submitted on the 18th and the date changed from 18 to 28

Jun 21, 2019

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

Jun 30, 2019

anyone know how long we have to complete the hirevue?

    • 1
Jun 25, 2019

Also wondering.

Jul 1, 2019

No deadline but I would do it within a week.

Jul 1, 2019

Until the next wave of Hirevue's are sent out, at which time they focus their attention away from all previous waves. Each wave appears to be around 2 weeks.

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!

Jun 24, 2019

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.

Awesome, thanks for the helpful response! Am curious as to if others have heard the same thing

Jun 24, 2019

Would also love any info about the "last updated" changes on my applications. My IB app was last updated 7/1 and it has been changing a lot recently. Just was wondering if anyone knows what that means.

Jun 24, 2019

I believe it's updated as each hirevue set goes out. Whenever a new batch of people get hirevues, my date gets updated.

Jul 2, 2019

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

Jun 24, 2019

It should take about a week after submitting the pymetrics for you to get your Hirevue

Jul 1, 2019

It's only day 2 after you sent in the app... probably will get the hirevue in 3-5 days.

Jul 2, 2019

I applied to IB/Market Trading/AM and got hirevue for only AM, does that mean my IB and MT apps got dinged? Did anyone else get their AM hirevue yet? I applied on June 15th btw

Jul 2, 2019

Also wondering, applied research and trading and just got hirevue for trading 20 mins ago but nothing on research yet

Jul 2, 2019

I just got my trading Hirevue too I think I should be getting IB one soon. Maybe they are sending out hirevues based on the division

Jul 9, 2019

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

Jun 24, 2019

I think it depends on when you did the pymetrics. However, there's been a couple hirevue cycles since the 15th so you might've gotten dinged

Jul 2, 2019

I just received my IB Hirevue, I think they are sending out in waves. Also, are they sending out hirevue to everyone? My GPA is shit and from a nontarget so is it like everyone gets an hirevue?

Jul 2, 2019

If you've already submitted a Hirevue for one location, does JPM use that same one for other locations? Or do you have to submit multiple if you applied in different regions? Completed a Hirevue for one region (Aus) but not for the other (U.S.) and haven't received any email to complete a Hirevue for the U.S. yet. Status on U.S. app says "Application Reviewed". What does this mean?

Happy 4th of July (almost)! Would some kind samaritan describe what the format for the hirevue is? How many questions, and what kind of questions were asked? Thanks so much, really appreciate it

Jun 24, 2019

It's 4 questions that are mostly standard behaviorals. If I remember correctly you get a minute and a half or two minutes for each with a retry available for every question.
