    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at American Express (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Phone interview only. The position wasn't true project management, it was more of an analyst role in the Program Management Office for Global Business Travel. There were two interviews, each with a Director-level person. Very light conversation and not at all heavy on technical or Senior PM activities and duties.

    Chat with recruiter, phone interview, in-person interview with one manager and one peer.

Finally much time was spent gathering information about the projects ongoing in the company.
