    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Columbia, MD) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewers were very friendly, but started off telling me this isn't an interview more like a get to know you type meeting. One of the interviewers explain he was a psych major, and kept repeating that this wasn't an interview, and started asking personal questions about my life. He also was open with how he got to the position he's in now. Explain that they aren't looking for an admin right now, cause they don't know if they can afford it.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Minneapolis, MN) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on line and the process took roughly 7-9 days. I interviewed first with HR, and subsequently was given a call back for a second interview with the Director and his Team Lead. The interview honestly was dull. I was asked your "typical" behavioral non conversational questions to which some did not fit my background at all, so I had to conjure up an immediate answer that overall did not mirror my background. Why do interviewers must insist on the standard, " so give me an example of when you…..? How boring is that? When interviewing, I prefer a interview that is conversational so that you as the interviewee can have a sense of the interviewer temperament and the way his/her questions are carried out (i.e with a smile or a chuckle). If with either, it makes the interview less tense and very comfortable. The questions they asked me one would think I was interviewing for Goldman or JPMorgan to which I worked in the past. I am not discounting Ameriprise as not being a great company, but the way the interview was conducted one would think you're interviewing for a high salaried position. This was a first for me, to take myself out of the running. After the interview concluded, I emailed HR and told her I was no longer interested in pursuing the role. Granted, I am in dire need of employment (unemployed here) but I could not see myself working for that department I interviewed. I also was willing to relocate from my home state (NJ) to (MN) but my gut told me this isn't the role to make such an adjustment.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Minneapolis, MN) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Had a brief phone interview with a HR rep, she asked the basic questions like "Why do you want to work at Ameriprise?" Then a week later I moved on to the in person interview with the hiring manager. Both were very casual interviews, not stressful at all. It seemed like they were looking for more of a personality fit than stressing about what skills I have. After the in person interview they told me that I would receive an offer in a few days. Ameriprise seems like a great company and I could definitely see myself working there, however I declined and accepted an offer at another company that offered a higher salary and more vacation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ameriprise in June 2015.

    Interview

    I recently participated in a 30 minute phone interview, the first step in the interview process for Ameriprise. The recruiter was prompt in responding to my application submission, and setting up a phone interview. On the morning of the interview she called me right on time. She provided a brief overview of the position, based on information that she had sent a day earlier. I was asked two questions and then was given an opportunity to ask questions of my own. The recruiter was very professional and very helpful when I had questions of my own. She was also very detailed when it came to answering my questions as well as in describing the process that would follow.
