The process took 2 months - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – 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.

Very Easy Interview

Weston, FL

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – - 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.
- How do you keep up to date with current technology?
- Describe a time you went above and beyond in a project, class or job.
- Describe a time you demonstrated leadership to get a task done
