    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at American Express.

    Interview Details

    The interview was purely via webcam, so unless you're used to communicating that way, it can be a bit awkward. They give you ample time to get used to the website and process before continuing, however. You record your answers to questions in which they present to you, which they review later.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at American Express in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    I met with three different people and each one was very kind and cared to have a real discussion. They each explained the role to me individually and I fully understood exactly what I would be doing. It's in my opinion that they hire social people with skills to match. It's definitely helpful to be friendly during the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at American Express.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university and was selected for a first-round interview. There were 2 45-minute back-to-back interviews. Questions were mostly behavioral, but a few were situational. Interviewers were reading the questions off of a sheet and taking notes, so the interviews didn't feel very spontaneous. The interviewers were nice.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time you had to make a difficult decision.
      Tell me about a time you had to handle a stressful situation.
      If you were told you had to lead marketing campaigns in 3 cities, what questions would you ask and how would you implement the campaigns?

      + plenty of other questions already posted by others.

    About 50/50 split between HR or situational questions and some basic programming concept questions over the phone. Two interviews back to back lasted for about an hour. The situational questions are especially important. They want to see that someone has the right personality type for the job.
