    Marketing Executive Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Express (London, England (UK)) in September 2013.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • How does the history of AMEX effect its aquisition strategy going forward.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

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

    Analyst, Strategic Planning Group Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at American Express (London, England (UK)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Description for London. A very similar process to all other consulting jobs - submit your CV, take an online assessment. If you are successful, you have 2 interviews in the first round, 2 in the second round, and one as the final round. All have two parts - CV part and a case part. Very similar to the consulting top companies - McKinsey and such.

    Interview Questions

    • No very ugly questions. Be prepared to answer what other companies you are applying for and why you prefer American Express. I was asked in the second round by both interviewers these questions and they went after me. Know how to solve case studies, the ones given to me were not extremely difficult, but practice, practice, practice makes perfect.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation - their offer was generous for a starting salary, the graduate programme looked promising.

    Unior Event Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at American Express (London, England (UK)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very thorough interview involving usual competency based questions. Questions were very lengthy and not what I would consider plain english. Took a while to recieve any feedback from the recruitment agency and when i phoned to chase they had no record of my interview! This was purely lack of communication by the recruitment agency and not a fault of the company.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe an occasion when you persuaded someone to change their way of thinking without making them feel like you were criticising them. How did you approach this and what was the outcome?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at American Express (London, England (UK)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Have to get past the online testing, submit cover letter etc. They I had a 30 minute telephone interview. The key here is to understand the role and exactly what the company does. When I received my feedback, that is what they say I didn't do very well. Overall, not a bad experience. Learnt a lot from the experience as it was my first telephone interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The norm, What do we do? Why AMEX? What will your day to day consist of? etc   Answer Question
