    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.
