    Director - Marketing Analytics Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I skipped through the initial phone screen because my resume was forwarded internally to the Hiring Manager (I had applied previously to another AMEX position). The first on-site was with the Hiring Manager and two other Marketing leaders. It was fairly laid back with not too many technical questions.

    After that I was told that they'd like me to speak with two of the guys that I'd be managing (my direct reports for this role are remote). They mostly asked me about my experiences in the areas in which I'd be managing them.

    Finally, they asked me to come in a final time to speak with the EVP.

    Senior Marketing Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screen + 3 rounds of in-person interviews. The questions are not highly technical. As a marketing analyst, you do not necessarily need to know the intricacies of each channel. The most important qualities they are looking for are TEAM work, being able to work cross-functionally, ability to receive and give feedback, and communication. Cultural fit is the more likely determinant of whether you get an offer than actual job related experience.

    Prepare for questions like, "tell me about a time you received poor feedback from your manager" or "tell me about a time you optimized a process", "why xyz department", "why xyz marketing", make sure you have a story and opinion crafted for standard behavioral questions.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I had three rounds of interview for this position: one with HR, one with hiring manager and one with a director from partner groups. Overall I felt the interview went well, but there was just no any response to my inquiry for 3 weeks. They should treat application better than that :(.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Step 1: Phone call with recruiter
    Discussed the position. Questioned if the job was suitable for my skill-set, especially with not having some requirements. I checked and was told I only needed familiarity with Java, not experience.

    Step 2: Interview with your web cam (you talk to your computer with nobody on the other side).
    Answered text questions verbally. Nothing out of the ordinary. Some multiple choice and 'type your answer' questions.

    Step 3: Assessment with person via web cam
    Was informed this step was not an interview, but a basic 60 question assessment in 45 minutes. No questions surrounding my experience was mentioned. Basic web questions with a shared coding screen.

    Step 4: I didn't get to this point. No feedback was returned. I have been completely ignored by HR and would rate this as one of the worst interview experiences through my 10 years in a professional setting.
