    Interview Details

    1. Online application followed by online testing
    2. Telephone interview - competency based (30 mins)
    3. Assessment Centre - 2 interviews, case study + presentation, group exercise

    It might look scary like this, but I have to add the most important - people are extremely positive and outgoing, trying to help you do your best and show your skills. A smile is the word that describes best American Express. Best culture, easy to approach people, extremely open and friendly. Best interview experience, great organisation (breakfast, lunch, chat with current placement year analysts)!

    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at American Express.

    Interview Details

    The recruitment team carry out initial telephone screening and arrange face to face interviews.
    The face to face interview over 4 hours with 6 different people was a farce & all over the place.
    The job was re- advertised before they had communicated to confirm I was unsuccessful, and I had to email them to ask the outcome!!!

    Telephone Interview - basic questions, who are AmEx? Why Finance? What do I know about UK involvement? AmEx products?

    Assessment Day with a select number of candidates,
    It was a very enjoyable day of interviews and activities; we completed a case study and presented it, took part in a team-based task as well meeting the current interns.
    The interviews themselves were well structured and allowed a lot of questions back, creating a good dialogue between the interviewer and interviewee.

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at American Express in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Have to get past the online testing, submit cover letter etc. They I had a 30 minute telephone interview. The key here is to understand the role and exactly what the company does. When I received my feedback, that is what they say I didn't do very well. Overall, not a bad experience. Learnt a lot from the experience as it was my first telephone interview.

    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at American Express in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Painfully slow process, the Sourcing Partner in charge of the initial stages has no inclination to work whatsoever. It took him weeks to set up the first interview, which was a phone interview just with him! The Amex career website did not work for days so I could not access the updated job description. Instead I was sent a word document with highlighted edits all over it. Very unprofessional. When we finally got round to having the first interview, I was told at the end of it that it was refreshing to find a candidate with the right experience like me, as they had been unsuccessfully trying to recruit for months. He said the Hiring Manager was on annual leave for Christmas until early January and that they'd get back to me then. 8 weeks later, I am still waiting. I sent the Sourcing Partner a follow-up email that he ignored. All in all, an incredibly unprofessional and inefficient behaviour that has put me off from working at American Express for good.

    Interview Details

    Initiated by an online application, then i got an online test invitation containing Numerical with about 3 minutes to answer one question, Personality test and Verbal reasoning with the same timing.
    After passing the test i got a call for scheduling the next stage of the recruitment process which is a phone interview.

    Phone interview was quite simple basically questions about your motivation for Studying Computer Science, and why i am pursuing a career in this field. Why did i chose American Express, and some situational judgement questions like my experience Working in a group project. How was it , what was my role etc. And then my questions for him. Now i am waiting for the feedback on the outcome of my interview,
