    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at American Express in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Huge building swarming with people doing analytics. Very difficult to see how one would make a contribution...even the people interviewing me had a difficult time describing that they contributed or even their departments. Friendly people, but seemed lost.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at American Express in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initially discussed position with HR and then met with the director of the team the following week. Interview went well and she asked fairly typical questions for a marketing position (examples from my experience, hypothetical scenarios, etc). She then had me meet with another member on the team who had previously held the position, which was helpful, as he gave a lot of good info on the role. Both went really well and I came back in the following week to meet with the VP. He was a little more intense - asked questions about industry, competitors, future plans in the company, and general marketing knowledge. Said he was meeting with a few other candidates but would get back to me shortly. Unfortunately, I never heard back from them. In fact, in the 2 months after, I reached out to HR and the director via phone and email, but no one has responded. For such a reputable, well-established and supposedly amazing place to work, it's a highly unprofessional and disrespectful way of treating potential candidates. I assume that I didn't get the job but it would've been greatly appreciated if someone had reached out to tell me.

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at American Express in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted within a few days of applying online through the company website. After a very pleasant and promising interview, I NEVER heard back from the hiring manager or the HR. After speaking with other people who have gone through the recruiting process with AMEX, I've realized that I'm not alone. I get that people are busy, but have the courtesy to reply with a concrete answer. It takes a simple email or a phone call. THAT'S IT. They're tarnishing their "BRAND IMAGE" they dearly care so much.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at American Express in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    I received an e-mail from a recruiter from American Express asking for days that I could come into their office for an interview. I never got a response to my e-mail until the recruiter called me a week later to confirm my interview time for the next day. I informed him there must be some confusion because I would have to travel to New York and couldn't come up in a day's notice. Although I was wary of this process so far, I agreed to set up something for several days later. I was told to arrive 15 minutes early to get through security. Once I arrived, I was asked why I had gotten there so early. I was then kept waiting 45 minutes. The interview started about 30 minutes late. It was obvious about 15 minutes in that this was a screen interview and I wasn't being seriously considered. I was informed that had the interviewer known I wasn't local to New York then they would have done it over the phone. The problem was that the recruiter did know. My advice: Be certain they are considering you for the position before spending time or money.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at American Express in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    There were multiple interviewers.

    They asked questions off resume first then like questions about experiences and strengths and stuff.

    Then behaviour based questions about just what you would do in this situation or when you demonstrated this.

    Not such a hard interview. Just relax and have fun.
