    Had my interview with one of the trading desks some time ago. I was the first and only one that day. The team told me they were interviewing more ppl early last week and should get back to me by the end of last week.

    Now its getting towards the end of the following week so they are a week late. I rang HR about 2 days ago and she said the team interviewed a lot of ppl last week and she still hasnt heard from them.

    Does this mean Im out? or at least on the waiting list? Surely it cant take them this long to decide?:woo: :woo: :woo:

    no this was 2nd round...final round. I heard they usually decide after they've interviewed the last candidate. What can take them a week?

    OK JPM do have a tendency to do this where they interview batches of people. Most ACs just recruit effectively once you attended that round but JPM hold quite a few ACs and THEN they decide which of them they want to keep. So they have a greater selection to pick from. My friend who got a job there waited 9 working days before she got her offer. So I would tell you to wait until then. Unfortunately they do rejections and acceptance on the same day. Hope you get your offer.

    I found out in 2 days after mine.

    If it's final round, it's because they're holding out for someone better.

    just wonder why they hold every single ACs for only 6 ppl? They could gather 12 or even 18 together and then make decisions just the day after the AC.....
