    Interview Details

    1. Online application followed by online testing
    2. Telephone interview - competency based (30 mins)
    3. Assessment Centre - 2 interviews, case study + presentation, group exercise

    It might look scary like this, but I have to add the most important - people are extremely positive and outgoing, trying to help you do your best and show your skills. A smile is the word that describes best American Express. Best culture, easy to approach people, extremely open and friendly. Best interview experience, great organisation (breakfast, lunch, chat with current placement year analysts)!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at American Express.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a phone call from the AMEX recruiter the next day followed by a quick phone interview. Second interview with the hiring leaders was then scheduled within the next few days after the first interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Not difficult as long as you are using the STAR answering method. Even if you are not using that or that you are nervous, they will help you up by asking you to explain in further detail. Key is to be prepared! the questions are pretty straight forward. They just want to know more about you and how you can contribute to the job with your previous job experience.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    The recruiters make sure that the applicants really understand the job description of the position they have applied to. They also make sure they let you know of the benefits, salary packages, allowances and also if they will provide you with performance incentives. I did not make any negotiation on the salary package as AMEX pays higher than average in the market.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at American Express in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    First interview consisted of two 45 minute interviews. The questions were mostly fit and situational but there were a few technical questions. The interviewers were different in the ways that they asked questions, but they were given a list of questions in advance to ask, and they made that pretty clear during the interview process. They are told to leave the last 10 minutes open to let us ask questions.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at American Express.

    Interview Details

    The recruitment team carry out initial telephone screening and arrange face to face interviews.
    The face to face interview over 4 hours with 6 different people was a farce & all over the place.
    The job was re- advertised before they had communicated to confirm I was unsuccessful, and I had to email them to ask the outcome!!!
