I would just like to share my experience when I went to my scheduled interview on May 7. I arrived at the career hub at 9:40, twenty minutes before my schedule. After submitting my resumé at the front desk, I was told to take a seat. After waiting for two hours, I decided to text Jake the recruiter to follow up. He told me that he will contact HR. Eventually, at 12:40 PM, after THREE hours of waiting, somebody announced my name. I approached her and she was visibly irritated. She did not even introduce herself. She just told me to follow her to the interview room. When we got there, she told me to sit down and wait while she was setting up. I think she wanted to make it obvious that she was irate because she was angrily banging away at her keyboard and slamming down papers on the table. During the actual interview, she was very rude and confrontational. I felt that I was being interrogated by the Gestapo. She would ask me questions and then cut me off as I talked. She also asked irrelevant questions just to make me seem foolish. For example, she asked me if I gave notice for a job where I resigned. I replied that it was an immediate resignation which was approved by my immediate supervisor. She then asked if I had manager approval, to which I replied "I don't know". I told her that it must have been likely approved by the manager because my supervisor approved it and I filed a clearance. She was very argumentative and she insisted that I needed the manager's approval or else my status would be terminated instead of resigned. I reiterated that I had clearance and my supervisor's approval, so most likely it was also approved by the manager. She kept driving her point, but I didn't want to get into an argument, so I just kept quiet. She then asked me to provide the exact date of my employment at the said company. She became more irate when I told her that I could provide the month, as written on my resumé, but not the exact day. I told her that I can give that information when I submit the CoE from that company. If I didn't have manners I would have walked out right there and then, because I knew that I wouldn't get the job.

I used to have a high regard for JP Morgan Chase. In fact, my biggest career regret was not taking the job when I was offered back in 2007 or 2008 to be part of the first class of fraud specialists. However, after this incident, I will not recommend to anyone to apply to your company.

I hope that my letter can serve as a training opportunity for your HR department.

Yup! Pero as if naman the interviewer will get anything more than a slap on the wrist...Kaya I decided to post it online to show how much the quality of JPMC has gone down in recent years. Applicant ka pa lang binabastos ka na, paano pa kaya after you get hired? Before nga they used to be stricter with who they hire, college grads lang. May background check pa, including financials. Ngayon, basta may college experience pwede na
