Difficult Interview

Business Systems Analyst II Interview

Business Systems Analyst II
Minneapolis, MN

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Ameriprise in October 2013.

Interview Details – Recieved a call for a phone interview about 4 or 5 days after applying online. Phone interview scheduled, and the HR recruiter was 30 minutes late (which is frustrating as I am currently employed and needed to reserve a conference room). Phone interview went really well, despite the HR recruiter's lateness.

Contacted via phone about a week later, asking for an in-person interview. Met with the hiring manager and one of her associates. Interview went well, mostly STAR questions, but they were quite difficut -- lots of questions about ethics, which I did not expect for this interview.

Was told the recruiter would let me know within a week. Never heard back. Very unprofessional!

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you were asked to do something unethical.   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Senior Claims Adjuster Interview

Senior Claims Adjuster

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Ameriprise.

Interview Details – Completed online application and was called for phone interview with HR. Has follow up phone interview with hiring manager. I was then invited to come onsite for interview, but they expected me to pay for the flight and all expenses. I balked and said that was not common and what I had previously experienced. I was told I was their number one candidate and they wanted me, but they also did not think they could meet my salary expectations. The last I heard was that they were going to consider a Skype interview or some alternate type of interview arrangement. That was more than 3 weeks ago. I have not heard anything since then. Not cool, especially when you are allegedly their number one candidate. Meh.

Interview Question – None. All the interview questions were standard behavioral type questions.   Answer Question

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Minneapolis, MN

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Ameriprise in January 2013.

Interview Details – Submitted resume online and received email a few days later asking for me to call in and set up phone interview. I did so, but to only have the HR person do the phone screening then and there. It was fine for me as I called when I didn't have anything pressing, but would like be different if you're at your current work etc.

Questions were basic HR stuff "Tell me more about your work experience", "Do you know how to use Excel/Access".

Phone call was going fine until HR asked me my salary requirements and I gave her a "higher than this" number. Then there was an awkward pause and she revealed "This position only pays between 45K-50K, are you still set on your original salary requirement?"

Personally, the amount they were willing to pay is less than what I made coming out of college so I told her the salary was non-negotiable and we ended our call there, but if the amount is something you can work with then by all means use my review as your negotiation tool ;).

Interview Question – None. Just basic HR stuff. No technical questions.   Answer Question

Interest Rate Quantitative Analyst Interview

Interest Rate Quantitative Analyst
Cleveland, OH

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Ameriprise in July 2012.

Interview Details – About three days after submitting my application, I got a call from a recruiter to set up a phone interview with a manager.
The interview with the manager went well I think. However I told the manager I had not yet completed my dissertation and his recommendation was that I complete it before I start working. The manager was nice and friendly.
Most if not all of the questions were based on what I told the manager.

Interview Question – Tell me about yourself (first question).   Answer Question
