Senior Claims Adjuster Interview

Senior Claims Adjuster

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Ameriprise.

Interview Details – Completed online application and was called for phone interview with HR. Has follow up phone interview with hiring manager. I was then invited to come onsite for interview, but they expected me to pay for the flight and all expenses. I balked and said that was not common and what I had previously experienced. I was told I was their number one candidate and they wanted me, but they also did not think they could meet my salary expectations. The last I heard was that they were going to consider a Skype interview or some alternate type of interview arrangement. That was more than 3 weeks ago. I have not heard anything since then. Not cool, especially when you are allegedly their number one candidate. Meh.

Interview Question – None. All the interview questions were standard behavioral type questions.   Answer Question

Financial Advisor Interview

Financial Advisor
Minneapolis, MN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ameriprise in November 2011.

Interview Details – They called me to do a phone interview first. It was very short and just asked a few background questions around customer service. The next part was scheduled as an intelligence quiz. It was a short quiz that involved math and reasoning questions. It was pretty simple and basic. After passing the quiz I was scheduled to meet with one of the sales managers and an HR representative. Not all of the interviews are done with the HR person. The interview was similar to other interviews until they asked me to do an impromptu role play of a phone conversation. I did not feel I did well on that but showing that I could handle the sudden task was enough to offer me the job.

Interview Question – There was a role play question about setting an appointment over the phone.   Answer Question

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Minneapolis, MN

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Ameriprise in January 2013.

Interview Details – Submitted resume online and received email a few days later asking for me to call in and set up phone interview. I did so, but to only have the HR person do the phone screening then and there. It was fine for me as I called when I didn't have anything pressing, but would like be different if you're at your current work etc.

Questions were basic HR stuff "Tell me more about your work experience", "Do you know how to use Excel/Access".

Phone call was going fine until HR asked me my salary requirements and I gave her a "higher than this" number. Then there was an awkward pause and she revealed "This position only pays between 45K-50K, are you still set on your original salary requirement?"

Personally, the amount they were willing to pay is less than what I made coming out of college so I told her the salary was non-negotiable and we ended our call there, but if the amount is something you can work with then by all means use my review as your negotiation tool ;).

Interview Question – None. Just basic HR stuff. No technical questions.   Answer Question
