Business Systems Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
Salt Lake City, UT

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 days - interviewed at American Express in January 2010.

Interview Details – The interview process was pretty basic. I did have to plan or prepare much at all. I was called by a staffing agency notifying me of the job and asking if I'd be interested in interviewing. I was then contacted by a native German speaking working at Amex who called to initially screen me for how well my German speaking fluency was. I then interviewed with the recruiting manager as well as the German speaking worker I talked to on the phone.

Interview Question – The most difficult or unexpected question the recruiting manager asked me was if faced with an web-servicing issue, what initial steps would I take to resolve the issue.   View Answer

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at American Express in December 2009.

Interview Details – They are not the fastest company to organize interview and it depends on who interview you, I was interviewed by the manager, she was cordial but a bit cold, I left the interview a bit nervous a there is no sign of how she feels about the interview. Everything was straight forward, I get answers to most of the questions I asked. Perception at that time is it's quite an organized department.

Interview Question – Would you be interested to do the same kind of job you were doing before? (not difficult though)   Answer Question
