Customer Care Professional Tier II Interview

Customer Care Professional Tier II
Phoenix, AZ

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at American Express.

Interview Details – The interview process went very smoothly. I applied online and received an email to complete online testing. After testing, I received a call the next day to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was scheduled for later on that day. After the phone interview, I was invited to come to the office for an in person interview the next week. The in person interview was with one person. She told me about the position and reviewed my resume. She asked me five competency based questions and asked if I had any questions for her. She advised that I would here something either way by the end of the week. At 4:45pm on Friday of that week, I received a call offering me the position.

Interview Question – One of the questions that I was asked was about how my actions contributed to change within an organization.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was really no room to negotiate. You basically have to accept what they offer or take the chance of having the offer withdrawn. I was very satisfied with the offer extended to me.

HOME BASED SERVICE - Customer Care Professional Interview

HOME BASED SERVICE - Customer Care Professional
Orlando, FL

I applied through other source and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at American Express in June 2014.

Interview Details – The application is pretty simple as well as the assessment. Although the assessment can be a little bit intimidating. Once you have taken it, they don't tell you right away if you failed it. either you get an email the next day that you were not considered for the position, or you will receive a email/call to set up a possible interview.

Interview Question – one of the most difficult questions asked, or at least so I thought was, "tell me a time when you have a difficult manager and what you did"? Really, I was prepared for all types of types of question even practiced the Star method of answering and I choked.   View Answer

Technologies Vendor Specialist Interview

Technologies Vendor Specialist
Phoenix, AZ

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at American Express in June 2013.

Interview Details – The process was pretty quick and painless. I had a brief phone screen with HR to ensure that my salary requirements were within range and then they scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager. My phone interview was pretty basic, covered skills and what the job would entail. They then had me come in for a face-to-face interview where I spoke with the Director and VP.

Interview Question – It honestly was a very easy interview process and I got the job so I don't know how to answer this...   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I asked for a higher salary and they said they would have to take that back through HR and the VP and it would most likely put me out of the running so I accepted the initial offer (which was still about a 9% increase from my previous salary).
