- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Express (Phoenix, AZ).
After applying online they contacted me by email. I took the written assessment, and the next day had a brief phone interview during which they asked one or two questions then described the general job and answered any questions I had. After accepting the offer, the next part of the process required a drug screen and background check.

- No OfferNeutral ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Express (Phoenix, AZ) in July 2015.
Applied online, took a couple days, did a video interview then waited a few more days for a phone interview. Waited about a week or so to get an answer. The hiring process is pretty tedious and they take a while to get back to you since there are so many other candidates

Helpful (2)Declined OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. I interviewed at American Express (Phoenix, AZ).
Did an initial video screen. Found that part to be very sterile, impersonal. What's next? A robot interviewer? Then had a scheduled phone interview with actual people that actually Never called. Now see if it was a robot or computer that would not have happened. I let the HR rep know that I had been stood up. Then I waited a couple of days for someone to call me back with a valid/sensible explanation. Well guess what? Dead silence. So I initiated an email asking for an explanation. Instead what I got was a lame response back from the recruiter. I am thinking if they were trying to impress me, hey! I am impressed but not in a good way. Are they really trying to fill this job? Are they just to darn busy to pick up the phone and let me know they need to reschedule? That incident really left me with a really negative impression of this company and that group that I was supposed to interview with.

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at American Express (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2015.
I went through three interviews, one pre-screening interview which was web-based (took 30 mins, mixture of multi-choice, essay, and video answers), then a phone interview, followed by an in-person interview. It seemed like the same questions were asked throughout the process, which was a bit strange.

Competency based interview questions. This type of interview style is increasingly popular and many online and published articles may be found to understand and prepare for a competency based interview. They have either two or three interviewers in the process, and the hiring manager does not participate in the competency based interview, they use peers and team members for this part of the process.
