    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at American Express.

    Interview Details

    Started at the career fair, Then had an on campus interview. This was half behavioral and half technical. After this you get moved onto a phone interview round. This round is also half behavioral and half technical, though the technical questions become more abstract. Overall, not too bad, the people that recruited me seemed to have freedom to move around in the company and to advance, so it seems that the company is structured nicely.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at American Express.

    Interview Details

    I went through three separate interviews all on separate days. It was difficult to wait because every day felt like an eternity.The final interview was the best because I did not know that the interviewer was the head of Credit Operations so I was just being myself and we had a few laughs. There was no pressure. Then she offered me the job and I thought that she was joking. It was dunny.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at American Express in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I went through 2 interviews. Group and individual. It was a tough environment, almost a bit pack fight mentality to seperate the weak from the chaff. But, a great sense of achievment lies if you are up to the challenge and good enough to come through the other end.

    Easy enough, limited negotiation experience meant I was happy to accept what they offered me-which seemed (and still does) to be reasonable.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manama (Bahrain)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manama (Bahrain)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at American Express in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was called for an interview with people from the business and HR a the same time. They asked all the typical questions of a normal interview.

    When I asked what would the rest of the recruitment process be like, they said they had not defined it yet. That sounded quite strange. I asked if it was a matter of them making a decision on hiring me or not or if there would be another interview, and again they said they were not sure.

    It has now been over 6 weeks since I had my interview. Even after sending emails asking for feedback, no response was sent back.

    I must say it does not feel good to attend an interview in such a respected organisation and be treated with so little respect.

    Team Leader Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at American Express.

    Interview Details

    The whole interview process took one month. Went thru total 5 rounds of interview which included recuriter,HR, leader, trainer & Manager, HOD before i secured the position. Interviewer involved can be solo or in team.

    Surprised that the process is fast even though it went thru many tiers of interview. Different from most of the companies which will only have 2-3 rounds of interview for a Team Leader position. However, i think the process is great as it help to identify the right candidate to be present to the final decision maker which is a norm for AMEX. Even the most junior position in the business unit needs to go thru 3 rounds before offered.
