    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Ameriprise.

    Interview

    The entire process took 65 days. I had a phone interview a week after submitting my application, 2 weeks later I had a face to face. I was told I would hear back in about 2 weeks, 5 weeks later I sent an email for an update from the hiring manager. I received a response stating the process was not finalized. I was given the recruiter's name and phone number to follow up, the number I was given was inaccurate. A week later I left a message but did not have my call returned, one day later I received a rejection email.

    Held at the job fair for private colleges I attended. Lasted about 30 minutes between two HR workers. Pretty laid back basic HR type questions, nothing too specific relating to Finance except examples of materials and projects that came to find that could be used and called experiences. One worker was the leader of the program for interns and the other worked directly in the Finance department.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Ameriprise (Las Vegas, NV) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I was reached out to by an HR generalist that started the process. Consisted of 2 phone interviews and then 1 with the hiring manager. The final step would have been an in-person at the location. The first 3 steps went very quickly, but then I had to continue to follow up for a status with HR to see if I needed to make plans with my work schedule to fly to Las Vegas for the in-person, which I was never offered. The "decline decision" came 2 hrs after I called the hiring manager to follow up after not hearing from HR for 2 weeks. The decline was based on another candidate having more managerial experience, but they did offer me a job as an FA in the AAC in Las Vegas, to which I was not interested in an out of pocket re-location for a lateral move. There were 2 positions open and 1 was filled internally.
