    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at American Express.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter contacted me, had phone interview with recruiter, then with hiring manager, then face to face interview with hiring manager and his peer in the technology team. Filled out job application along with my resume, submitted it all to HR, and received an offer letter one week later.

    Interview Questions
    • None. The interview questions were very much what you would expect--who did you work for, what was your territory, what was your performance...   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Very simple, I showed my W2's for the past three years and asked for a signing bonus to make up the gap in the first year's pay. I got it.

    Technology Solutions Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Remote, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Remote, OR
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at American Express in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process started out just fine... the hiring manager called for a phone interview. Then I got another interview with the hiring manager where I had to do a presentation. I finally got a face to face with a Director. Everything was going fine and the hiring manager screwed up the process at the end. HR even called me to talk about salary. I interviewed in May and just got an email 3 months later that I didn't get the job. I found out that the hiring manager was trying to push through someone she knew. You truly have to know someone at the top to get a job there. What a waste of my time and energy.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions. The hiring manager wasn't real bright. My questions were more difficult than the hiring manager's.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Quick and easy experience. I applied externally for an temp position and got it within the day. Probably because I'm technical and Amex couldn't find someone within niche who also "gets" their value system.
