    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at American Express (Rancho Cucamonga, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online last week, then I was invited to a virtual interview, the following day. Then the next day, I was contacted by a recruited for a phone interview. I didn't pass the phone interview, because I don't remember very much about Sabre Native GDS. My agency stopped using Sabre years ago. However if you are currently with Sabre Native GDS system, you should be fine. I will take the initiative to sharpen my skills on Sabre Native and give it another try next time.

    Industrial Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at American Express in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was an initial phone interview. The first questions were standard to check the answers provided in the online application match. Then, it is more about talking about your resume. But when they start asking about your job experience, it is all about your past salaries. They asked for all my past salaries, even internships I did 5 years ago.

    After this, I felt very uncomfortable answering questions. The interviewer even pushed me to give an exact number for past jobs and the minimum salary I would accept.

    Overall, terrible experience. An interview should not be based about salaries and I think it is not their business to know my entire income history.

    Data Science Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at American Express (Tempe, AZ) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I got the email about the position through the university emails. I sent my resume to them and surprisingly after just 1 hour they sent me some timeslots to interview with them! They also provided me a conference call number along with a passcode to call them.

    In the day of interview, there were basically three people, one of them was a leader and the others were data scientists at AMEX. They started with explaining their background and wanted me to talk about mine too. After that, they asked two technical and basic machine learning questions. Questions were average and I solved the first one correctly and the second one almost correctly.

    It seemed that they had already chosen their candidate at that time and I've heard this from one of my friends who had applied for the position before me and got the onsite interview while I hadn't had my interview yet! I don't know why they still interviewed me while they already knew their right candidate?? I would say this is absolutely not fair while I had a pile of related publications in my resume compared to my friend who didn't have any paper at all!
