    Municipal Bond Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The reason for my post here is to publicly state my strong suspicion that a certain department at AmEx is using job candidates to do uncompensated work for them under the disguise of testing them. I was assigned a three-day research project on issues that have a current importance and value, then heard nothing more from AmEx and the job opening was posted again.

    Further details:
    I'm a municipal bond credit analyst, and the majority of my work consists of writing ratings opinions on bonds, similar to S&P and Moody's reports. The job opening required precisely this. I interviewed with a bond analyst who said that he was overwhelmed with work and had needed someone to help him for a long time already. I also interviewed with some kind of administrative manager of the department who did not know anything about the technical side of the work. The interview went smoothly, and I was told that there is nothing in my experience or skills that falls short of the job requirements.

    Some time later I received a request to do a research project, allegedly as a test of my writing. At the interview before, I had already brought about 20 recent report samples, and offered my former manager's reference to confirm the authenticity of my work. Despite this, they now said that they needed 2 new reports on specific bonds of their choice. I did the research and delivered the reports. New credit research is something that is objectively valuable, with a value (conservatively) of at least $100 per report.

    I immediately received a short email saying I will not be considered for employment and nothing else. My request for feedback was refused. The same day an identical job posting was published on the AmEx website: "Mgr-Risk & Information Management Job – New York, NY, US".

    From all the facts it is possible to reasonably surmise that they are using job candidates to help them with their large burden of work. The fact that the position was immediately reposted meant that they did not refuse me as a result of finding a better candidate. They told me I satisfied the job requirements, that they had an urgent need for help with their work burden, and refused to give any feedback on my reports. Either they discovered something about me that they discriminate against and can't say it, or they are illegally using people to do their work for free.

    I hope that anyone applying to this position will carefully consider all the above before spending days doing work for them.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at American Express.

    Interview

    Initial process regarding interview went rather quickly, within a few days I had the initial phone interview, the in-depth phone interviewer, and then an offer. So the turn around time was fairly quick.

    Interview Questions

    • Ran into some issues with onboarding as they dropped the ball with following-up, verification of information, etc. Training was comprehensive (almost three months) and most of the trainers were helpful. Things took a turn for the worst once I was done with training and dealing with disrespectful upper management and team leads. They definitely do not embody the values mentioned in the initial hiring stages. I would not recommend this company or this position.   1 Answer

    Platinum Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at American Express (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in July 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process is deceptive. They tell you that you are there for a permanent position. You go through and extensive...EXTENSIVE background check and there is a lot of hoopla surrounding your actual hire but it is not an actual permanent position and you are not told this until you've already started the job and it may be to late because you may have given up a permanent job for something that is very shaky and shady to say the least.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing. The interviewer was amazing but again, they need to tell the potential hire that this is NOT a permanent position from the get go!!!   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Again...if it would have been for a permanent job, this would have been amazing.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at American Express in October 2014.

    Interview

    Met with AMEX at a college career fair and had a great first impression. Everyone seemed really passionate and enthusiastic about the company. The process took about 2 weeks to get an interview from the career fair. People kept telling me that I would not need any technical skills for the job or interview and that they would teach me on the job.

    The interview was suicide for a person who hasn't taken high level math and Java courses. Asked me to write code, solve math problems, and problem solve for various situations. There were behavioral questions, but mostly technical. Interviewers were very friendly and encouraging and I heard back from the interview 9 days later.

    Interview Questions

    • Write the code for a program to find the maximum value and a value greater than or equal to the minimum value.   Answer Question
