    I was contacted by the recruiter and was told she wanted to consider me for two positions. She was going to talk to the hiring team to see which one was the best fit. She NEVER got back to me and I followed up twice. I was excited and then annoyed at the rudeness.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at American Express in July 2014.

    Interview

    I completed the pre-screening interview and was told that I was exactly what they were looking for in this position. I was very excited about the position and was looking forward to my in person interview. However, the Recruiter contacted me to ask if I would hire her at my current company because it was so horrible to work for the Recruiting Company that American Express uses. The phone conversation ended when she basically stated that if I took the position at American Express then my position at my current company would be open and she could take my position. She then wouldn't listen to me when I told her I was no longer interested in the position and continued to forward my information on to the VP who was hiring for the position. The entire process was unprofessional and didn't make me want to work for a company whose recruiters were so unethical.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process is very thorough. It is divided in several stages. During the telephone interview all the details in your CV are verified and inconsistency noted. After that stage you may have other telephone interviews to drill down into details of your CV. In person interviews are very friendly but they are also ask you complex and difficult questions, for example what was your major mistake and how you managed it. For example if you were conditioned in your work you must perform better and you must demonstrate that you understand the breakdown and that you will be put the extra time to repair it. If this does not work you have to be ready to quit and try again in other job.
