    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.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed 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 ;).

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ameriprise in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I heard about the job through university career services website and job fair. Laid back initial interview with behavioral based questions. I was invited back to Minneapolis to visit HQ, and spent about a day touring and interviewing with other student candidates from around the midwest. The interview on site consisted of more behavioral based questions and a mock sales phone call. Great building, great people, but a SALES job. Very competitive and results-driven.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Ameriprise in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    About three days after submitting my application, I got a call from a recruiter to set up a phone interview with a manager.
    The interview with the manager went well I think. However I told the manager I had not yet completed my dissertation and his recommendation was that I complete it before I start working. The manager was nice and friendly.
    Most if not all of the questions were based on what I told the manager.
