Finance Analyst Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Express in March 2015.

Interview

Fairly easy, behavioral-based interview process. The hiring leader, VP, associate director, phone screen personnel etc. were all looking to make sure that subject matter expertise was there more than that I had credentials or baseless qualifiers. It felt like a very merit-based interview process and any added enthusiasm or effort to do well on the interviews was met well by them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at American Express.

    Interview

    Was hired out of college through off-campus recruitment. I had two phone interviews, and came in for a Superday where I interviewed with 2 directors. The questions were mostly behavioral. They also asked for any finance experience I had, or why I was interested in corporate finance.

    Interview

    1. Online application followed by online testing
    2. Telephone interview - competency based (30 mins)
    3. Assessment Centre - 2 interviews, case study + presentation, group exercise

    It might look scary like this, but I have to add the most important - people are extremely positive and outgoing, trying to help you do your best and show your skills. A smile is the word that describes best American Express. Best culture, easy to approach people, extremely open and friendly. Best interview experience, great organisation (breakfast, lunch, chat with current placement year analysts)!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Express (London, England (UK)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    First I had to take the phone interview, then there was an assessment centre, which was a day - long interviewing process. It consisted of a couple of 1:1 interviews of varying difficulties, a case study and a group task. However, everybody there was super-friendly so you stop stressing and be yourself. The response from the company was also very quick at all stages.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at American Express (London, England (UK)) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Three rounds, mainly competency based. First was with the HR business partner, then the hiring manager and finally the Finance Director.

    As a big multi-national organisation, the process can be really slow. It took 3 months to go from the application through the website to the offer being made.

    They will also do background checks before they give you the contract.
