Intern Interview

Intern
Boston, MA

I applied through an employee referral and 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.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work for us over another financial services firm?   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Business Systems Analyst II Interview

Business Systems Analyst II
Minneapolis, MN

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Ameriprise in October 2013.

Interview Details – Recieved a call for a phone interview about 4 or 5 days after applying online. Phone interview scheduled, and the HR recruiter was 30 minutes late (which is frustrating as I am currently employed and needed to reserve a conference room). Phone interview went really well, despite the HR recruiter's lateness.

Contacted via phone about a week later, asking for an in-person interview. Met with the hiring manager and one of her associates. Interview went well, mostly STAR questions, but they were quite difficut -- lots of questions about ethics, which I did not expect for this interview.

Was told the recruiter would let me know within a week. Never heard back. Very unprofessional!

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you were asked to do something unethical.   Answer Question

Client Service Coordinator Interview

Client Service Coordinator
Webster, TX

I applied through other source and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Ameriprise in February 2013.

Interview Details – The Franchise Owner will be conducting the interview but will have three other people in the interview as well. the franchise owner does most of the speaking but the others are there in case they have any questions or feel as if the franchise owner has forgotten something.

Interview Question – All the questions were pretty typical. Name a weakness, tell us about your experience/qualifications, etc.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Tough. He was only wanting to pay me $30,000 even though I had a college degree. I was currently making $32,000 at my prior job and said that since I had gained experience I was looking for more money, I was looking for $37,000. He said he would start me at my current rate of 32k and move me to 34k after my probationary period. He said he couldn't do 37k at the time but after I had been there a year he could. He followed through with the 34k but when I asked to see if I was still on track for the 37k he acted like he never offered that in the first place. I strongly suggest you get everything in writing before you accept the offer.
