Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at American Express in December 2010.

Interview Details – I applied online through the site. After about 2weeks, I was contacted for an interview. I did my research, many alums from my school work at Amex, and I read that they promote heavily from within....which had me wondering why that wasn't the case for this role.
In any case, they took awhile to get back to me after I applied. I had a phone interview/screen with the HR/recruiter. I thought I did ok. I had another offer in my pocket, so I wasn't sweating it. She claimed they had a quick turnaround and will get back to me in a day, max 2. She didn't!
She sent an email saying the position had been filled from within (never would've guessed) but that they would have another similar position open in a few weeks. I'll pass.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at American Express in August 2008.

Interview Details – Met with the hiring manager and a couple of her colleagues. Had a good interview but felt right from the start that I was not being seriously considered. Interviewers were all pretentious and couldn't wait to get out of there because I did not want the job any longer.

Final round was with the hiring manager. All interviews were standard behavioral interviews, no case interviews. The first round happened on a Monday, final round was that Friday.
