Application

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in August 2015.

Interview

You setup an online profile through their website. Review and submit for potential job opportunities. If the system selects you as a job match, a talent recruiter contacts you to setup initial phone interview. If you pass that level of the process, then 1:1 personal interviews and group interviews are scheduled. If you pass that level, then a preliminary offer is given and a background check is performed

    Interview

    CV Screening +Telephonic + In Person The interview process is really relaxed, focus on academics and CV more and less on the interview. Telling your friend to refer you and also talk for you to the hiring manager helps greatly.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Since the salaries offered are below the industry standards most new hires take a pay-cut..

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at American Express (Salt Lake City, UT) in August 2013.

    Interview

    3 rounds of interviews. Initial was a phone interview with HR. This was a screening interview to take the candidate pool from about 100 to 6. The initial interview consisted of a lot of "tell me a time when..." questions. It took about 45 minutes. The second interview was with two of the team members. This interview consisted of a lot of situational questions, such as, how would you handle this situation. I had 4 of these questions, then answered a lot of general questions about myself and my history. This interview took about an hour and a half. I was not selected for the final round of interviews, but my understanding from them is that it is just a formality to make sure you would fit in well, and the manager hires the one (of two or three) that are selected for that final round.

    Interview Questions

    • The situational questions took a lot of set up. The most difficult one dealt with how I would handle the situation when a very important customer and I were working on a team together. I felt 100% certain I was right, but he was adamant he was. How would you resolve the situation.   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Wired! They interviewed me for a position they already filled. I was asked by a recruiter to apply for a new business analyst role, after two months they suddenly made an appearance with a phone scree and a show onsite for the job which had been filled previous week. I am surprised at AMEX culture.
