    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Ameriprise in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Thorough, however the number of individuals in the mix should have been a sign that the role would be subject to multi-supervisor overkill.

    • The questions were dependent on the interviewer his or her level of professionalism.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Little if any flexibility due primarily to the regimented, structured culture.

    I applied through my college career website and got a call the next day after submitting my resume. The interviewer mostly asked general questions about skills, future career goals, and my class schedule. He didn't seem to be too prepared with questions.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Ameriprise.

    Interview Details

    Standard interview process with phone interview and typical questions for a college student looking for school-year internship. Seemed more concerned with my availability during the week. This was a for-credit internship so it was important I was able to offer enough hours during the 9-5 weekday work hours. Overall good learning experience.
