    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at American Express in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through FlexJobs on a Monday and heard back by email on Tuesday. I was asked to schedule an On-Demand interview which I completed on Wednesday . I was then contacted on Friday and asked to schedule a live interview with the preliminary hiring team for the following Monday. After that I was contacted on Tuesday with the news that I had made it to the next step. I scheduled the next interview on that Wednesday with the senior hiring manager. I was offered the Job on Friday. So the interview process took less than 10 days. The background check and Drug test were completed the following week.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at American Express in March 2015.

    Interview

    Fairly easy, behavioral-based interview process. The hiring leader, VP, associate director, phone screen personnel etc. were all looking to make sure that subject matter expertise was there more than that I had credentials or baseless qualifiers. It felt like a very merit-based interview process and any added enthusiasm or effort to do well on the interviews was met well by them.
