I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at American Express in December 2013.
Interview Details – Waste of time. The experience of interviewing with American express for the data scientist position made me wonder wether being a data scientist means that you are a geek with no decent people skill. They treated me in a very unprofessional and unaccepted way. They did not care about showing up on time for interviews. The worst part is that they threw random questions at me. All of the questions were something you could find online for typical interview questions for quantitative positions. I guess they did search for something online before the interview.
Interview Question – I think that one of the questions they asked was just have no answer. I seriously doubt the validity of the question. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at American Express in December 2013.
Interview Details – The people who were going to report to me were part of the interview process. Interesting process, but there was one person who didn't want a boss with high standards. They didn't want to be held accountable. I would suggest that you might not want to ask the inmates to pick the warden.
Interview Question – How many hours do you expect a salaried employee to work? View Answer
I applied online - interviewed at American Express in November 2013.
Interview Details – Don't waste your time. Works like a mafia. People without qualifications only hire people like them. The last thing they'll look at is your qualifications. You have to look and sound like them.
Interview Question – Be ready for unrelated questions or comments Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at American Express in November 2013.
Interview Details – Can be lengthy and don't always expect to hear to back if you were not selected.
Interview Question – Review "critical thinking" questions. There are lot of unexpected questions, like "tell me about your time in H.S.?" Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at American Express in November 2013.
Interview Details – Competency based interviews - it is definitely helpful to have internal support in form of reference calls/emails after you have had initial interview. Helpful hint: set up informationals with business areas of interest on an ongoing basis - when a job opportunity becomes available, you are then top of mind.

Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at American Express in October 2013.
Interview Details –
2nd round: details abut java....small online coding question(share screen)...easy.
3rd rround: more details on java...same screen share type.
final on-site interview: Here is where things are weird..For Pete's sake, I am applying for software engineer position...so when you call us on-site I expect coding questions, whiteboarding, data structures. They DIDNT ask me a SINGLE coding question..all questions were behavioral. like "tell me about yourself", "what do your friends think of you" (i dont care :-P)
Interview Question – nothing was difficult. He did ask me questions like "how many balls can fit in a car"..and find a root-cause problem.. View Answer
I applied through college or university and interviewed at American Express.
Interview Details – I applied through my college career center and had 2 45 minute back to back interviews on campus. They go through a list of behavioral questions like "Tell me about a time when..." and some more marketing-focused questions like "How would you increase card spending in the supermarket category?" Got a call a couple days later to be invited to Superday at their NYC office. Superday was also 2 45 minute back to back interviews in the division that you specified you wanted to be in and the questions are pretty much the same as the first round, a lot of behavioral questions and a few marketing/campaign questions here and there.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you had a ethical dilemma? Answer Question
