    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Las Vegas, NV) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I completed two applications for the Investment Rep role and the Inside Sales Rep role. A recruiter called me to complete a phone screen for both. I also completed 2 face-to-face interviews. The lead/manager for the Inside Sales Role responded to the emails that I had sent him weeks later (unprofessional). They expected me to cram for the insurance test. I declined the offer due to low pay and the stagnant response that I received from the lead/manager.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Minneapolis, MN) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was super easy. The online test assessment was a tad more difficult. The customer service online test was fairly easy. This might be because I have a background in customer service.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Minneapolis, MN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    I applied through Indeed. I then received and email from Sarah in Minnesota to schedule a phone interview. She responded quickly to my email with my available times. The next day we spoke for about 30 minutes. There were no difficult questions.

    Interview Questions

    • It was disappointing when the foundation of professionalism that had been built disintegrated. Three days after the interview, I received the rejection email. However, it was not from Sarah. It was a canned rejection email from Brassring. It was very general as if no one ever looked at my resume or had any contact with me at all. It was insulting and very unprofessional. I had given her 30 minutes of my time, and she couldn't take 90 seconds to send a quick email. This would make me think twice about trusting any investments with Ameriprise.   Answer Question

    Financial Sales Leader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Las Vegas, NV
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed 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.
