Application Details

The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at American Express.

Interview Details

Was referred by a current employee, who submitted my resume and letter of recommendation online. Was contacted by email a month later for a phone interview, which took place the following month. Phone interview consisted of two 30-minute conversations with department managers that mostly asked technical questions.

Got a call from campus recruiting to attend a Super Day the following week. There were two 45-minute in-person interviews that mostly asked the same questions along with more behavioral ones. The phone interview was actually much harder. In between interviews, you could network with current employees in the field.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at American Express.

    Interview Details

    Was recruited through the campus career fair and the process consisted of 2 interviews (both behavioral).

    The 1st one was an on campus interview right after career fair. It was an hour long interview divided between 2 different half hour sessions. The second one was a phone interview which surprisingly asked a lot of the same questions. The second interview is usually with the leader you will be working under for the summer and a HR rep.
