    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Express Publishing (New York, NY) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Had a recruiter contact me about this contract position. Did one phone interview with one of the programmers in which only technical questions were asked and I did not feel like I had the skills they were looking for. Received a request for an in-person interview a week or so later. Everyone in the office that walked by me while I was waiting said hello, good morning, etc and was extremely nice. Some people were dressed casually while some were not. Office was ok but after going to two different floors it was obvious they stick the tech department on a slightly less nice floor (old carpet, etc). My in-person was with the same programmer I spoke to on the phone who asked nearly the exact same questions, which again were all technical. There were no standard interview questions. No tell me about yourself questions. It seemed like the interviewer had very little experience conducting interviews. He seemed very awkward asking questions.

    Interview Questions

    • "What type of environment do you like to work in?" Thought they were asking about whether or not I liked to work in a solo manner or with a team, that kind of thing, but instead was asking technically which programs and software did I like to use.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at American Express Publishing (New York, NY) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewed for the Online Marketing and Audience Development team. Three interviews on-site in an afternoon, pretty short for each one. Behavioral stuff for the most part, asked about strengths and weaknesses, the extent of my analysis training, what I knew about the brands and other questions along that vein. Last question asked in my last interview what other offers I had, what I was looking for in a job, etc. Got the call two days later with the offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at American Express Publishing (New York, NY) in March 2009.

    Interview

    The process was long and confusing. Lack of clear communication between the recruiter, the hiring manager and the interviewer. They try to bring in someone with top quality skills and experience to do all the work but unwilling to give a fair compensation. The working environment seems to be ok. Just another typical cubical maze of corporate office spread among several floors.
