Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY).

Interview

Applied online. Had the recruiter for the role reach out to to me after a month. They quickly asked for a short 15-20 minute interview and asked general questions, make sure you have a reasonable salary expectation for the role you are applying for. Then met with three members of the team, Manager, Director and then the Vice President.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Express (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied via campus recruiting and immediately had an interview scheduled the next week. The first interview was on campus and it went very well. The interview is structured in 45 minute interviews with 2 different recruiters. The first 45 minute interview went really well. The questions were behavioral, leadership, teamwork, and some technical questions. The second second 45 minute interview took place immediately after my first one. The questions the second interviewer asked were similar to the first set. In summary, American Express is looking for candidates with good teamwork and leadership experience. Both interviews that day went smooth and it felt like I was having a conversation with a good friend and thats what they want it to be like. I will explain the questions in detail below.

    After these two 45 minute interviews I was contacted immediately the next few days regarding an invitation to a final interview on-site in Phoenix AZ. I travelled to Phoenix AZ from Tucson AZ the next week. American Express was kind to pay for my gas and hotel room. The next morning I went to the American Express site around 7:30AM along with a bunch of other University of Arizona and Arizona Statue University candidates going for the same potential positions for Amex. We were lead to a group meeting room and given our schedules for the day. I had my interview immediately that morning. The interview style and process was similar to the first round interview I had on campus. 2 sets of 45 minute interviews with 2 technical mangers. The interview was almost the same style. Asked leadership, technical and teamwork questions. I was very pleased with their professionally, friendliness, knowledge and passion of their field. After both interviews I went on a tour around the beautiful American Express campus. After the tour we were all served a delicious lunch and had a chance to have a chat with the managers present. After all of that we were told when we would hear the news for a follow up offer or denial very soon.

    The next week I got word of an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Although the hiring process is long, I did not feel it unusual or excessive.

    I interviewed in person twice, making it clear that American Express was my first choice. For the first opportunity I got no acknolewgement of my thank you letters and no response or updatefrom anyone. I figured it was an isolatrd incident.

    The second interview came and went and after great communication up to the second in-person interview I once again did not receive acknowledgement or update on their decision.

    The sad part of the story was when I received an email to complete a survey of my experience three weeks after the interview. I did not receive a generic rejection later a month after.

    Needless to say it was demoralizing and downright unprofessional. I have no intention of ever applying to this (my first choice for years) company again.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in September 2012.

    Interview

    the entire interview was a total of 3 rounds, meeting with my direct manager first, then other team manager, and finally the department VP was the last round. It was standard - about 30 minute to one hour round interviews. I would recommend dressing business casual with a flare. I feel as though they mass interviewed for analyst roles, and you should stand out physically as well as with work experience. everyone is qualified and unique - make yourself MORE qualified and MORE unique.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at American Express.

    Interview

    I had applied for a different position. My resume was forwarded to the financial intelligence unit manager, by whom I was contacted directly. After a phone interview, I was asked to come in for a written assessment. I wish I was given a little more direction. I was told to be specific but s concise as possible. I gave more of a factual summary rather than a story-like narrative. For this reason, I was not offered the position.
    The decision making was quick, and they did inform me I was not selected.
