    Business Intelligence Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at American Express.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application via the website and was contacted about a 10 days later by HR. We scheduled an interview and the HR person called me about 20 minutes late and said she had to reschedule. We managed to connect later that day, and she was very nice and professional. We had a detailed discussion about my background, skills, etc. She advised she would speak with the hiring manager and get back to me. A couple of days later, HR reached out to schedule a meeting with the hiring manager. He and I spoke for about 45 but he barely asked me any questions. He spoke in depth about the role, the company, and his background, and I was very interested. I was waiting for him to ask me something, anything, but he never did. I tried to interject my experience as it related where I could, but I never had the opportunity to really speak. A week later I was told I was not selected for another interview. I felt like perhaps I was just a number to fill a quota of interviewing X amount of candidates and I never really had a shot.

    Despite that, I still am interested in working here and hope I have another opportunity someday for a role that may be a better fit.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at American Express.

    Interview Details

    I can't disclose the questions since I signed a contract but they will focus in your communication skills and confidence of your answer more than the technical aspect so prepare to be questioned about anything you answer, if you say this algorithm is better you need to support the reason with a lot of confidence, don't hesitate and don't use words like "I think", "perhaps", etc.

    It took them 3 weeks just to reply to the online application and another 2 weeks to schedule the phone interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at American Express.

    Interview Details

    Started at the career fair, Then had an on campus interview. This was half behavioral and half technical. After this you get moved onto a phone interview round. This round is also half behavioral and half technical, though the technical questions become more abstract. Overall, not too bad, the people that recruited me seemed to have freedom to move around in the company and to advance, so it seems that the company is structured nicely.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at American Express in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Met with AMEX at a college career fair and had a great first impression. Everyone seemed really passionate and enthusiastic about the company. The process took about 2 weeks to get an interview from the career fair. People kept telling me that I would not need any technical skills for the job or interview and that they would teach me on the job.

    The interview was suicide for a person who hasn't taken high level math and Java courses. Asked me to write code, solve math problems, and problem solve for various situations. There were behavioral questions, but mostly technical. Interviewers were very friendly and encouraging and I heard back from the interview 9 days later.

    HOME BASED SERVICE - Customer Care Professional Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ocean Springs, MS
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ocean Springs, MS
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at American Express in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I filled out the application on the American Express Careers website and attached my resume. From that I was contacted for an interview. The interview was done as a recorded interview with the video camera being utilized. I do feel that the recorded interview process was a bit awkward and impersonal. I would have preferred to have spoken with a "real" person. It felt a bit like making one of those dating site videos instead of a job interview. And with no interaction with another person, I don't feel it gave your true abilities a chance to shine through.
