Senior Analyst Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in October 2013.
Four step process. (1) An initial phone interview with the hiring leader, very informal, wanted to know my background, expertise, future endeavors, etc. (2) A two-part, in person interview at the office. I met with the hiring leader and another Sr. Manager. I was asked to discuss my education and work experience followed by a series of scenario based questions. The format was very relaxing and enjoyable. (3) I was contacted shortly after for a second, in person interview with the VP of the group. This included another set of scenario based questions and was much more formal. (4) After my interview with the VP, I was asked to complete a case study. Very heavy on data analysis and had to present my power point via phone to the hiring leader. Was contacted the next day offering me the position. A great, efficient experience. The company is renovating their offices to a new, more collaborative environment. Both of my interviews were held on these renovated floors.
- The questions were mostly scenario based. Questions required examples of what steps you completed in order to work through an analytical process. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 5 days – interviewed at American Express (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in May 2011.
It was good and on time. though 6 rounds of interview made it tough. Let me tell you one thing, if you get selected for a job you will find all rounds were very easy and its very easy to get selected in this company. But after you are hired, you will see for the same position they take interviews and reject many people even in last round and then you will realize that it wasn't that easy to be here.
- Questions were based on your behavioral expertise. You can never decide whats correct and whats wrong. Answer Question
I didn't negotiate. They offered me more than I expected. I was very happy. Its been more than 2 years in this company and I am still happy.
