    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Ameriprise (Wellesley, MA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Very basic interview. Basically looked for an interest in the markets and working with people. No technical questions or case studies, more into looking to see what I was interested in and if I had any aspirations to continue in this field. They asked me a few questions about my resume, where I grew up, and if I had any hobbies etc.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Ameriprise (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    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.

    Business Systems Analyst II Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Ameriprise (Minneapolis, MN) in October 2013.

    Interview

    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!
