I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Minneapolis, MN) in September 2015.
I was contacted by a recruiter on Monster the same day that I posted my resume. I was advised to apply for one of two Csr positions in order to continue the hiring process. I applied for the series 7 job first. I passed two assessment tests. Then I had a phone interview with the same recruiter that found me on Monster. She told me more about the job and then asked me like 3 behavioral questions. I was asked to meet the hiring leaders next. I was interviewed by two hiring leaders. One of them didn't like my responses I guess. I didn't get that job but the recruiter asked me to apply for the series 6 position and I'd be pushed forward to the face to face interview. A week after I felt confident the second time around. Now awaiting feedback.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise.
Process took a few weeks from initial interview to first day of the job. Actual interview was very lengthy. Be prepared to answer a lot of typical interview questions ie tell me about yourself, where do you see yourself with the company in 2 years, how long do you intend to stay, etc.
- Tell me more about yourself, why do you want to work here, know how to answer any questions re: info on your resume Answer Question

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

I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Boston, MA) in August 2015.
One of the worst interview experience that I ever had. The recruit does not know how to email and sometime he does not even respond to the emails that we are sending. that is one of the main reason I did not like this company.
- Very bad and poor communication about the process and poorly organized as like nothing organized. Answer Question

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

I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Minneapolis, MN) in July 2015.
Three step process beginning with Human Resources review and screening; second step was interview with middle level manager within department; third step was interview with Vice President of the department. Fairly fast process, less than one month from start to finish. Mostly structured and by the book with little open discussion.

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