    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at American Express in February 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume at campus career fair. There are two round interviews. First one is on campus, second one is on site. Both one have the same format. You will interview with two person back to back. Each person will talk to you about 30-40 mins with both behavior question and technical question. They are friendly and the question is not very difficult. They have a sheet, basically they ask you questions following that sheet. I did well in the first round, so I was selected for the second round on site interview. I was asked for some specific question about Java which I did not know. I think it is the main reason why I did not get the offer. Overall, it is a nice experience. If you prepare well, I think you can make it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Career services sent out a link to apply. Went to their office visit. Signed up for virtual coffee chat and got advice from the person for the interview process. Highly recommended for those outside AmEx's recruiting schools to follow up with someone who works at the business unit you want to intern at.

    Application

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at American Express.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time you demonstrated leadership to get a task done.
      Describe a website that has a good user experience and another that has a bad one.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at American Express (Weston, FL).

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • - If you were a manager and you had multiple projects due next week but cannot deliver all of them on time, what would you do.
      - Describe a time you communicated effectively in a team environment.

      - Describe a time you went above and beyond in a project, class or job.
