Application

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

They recruit on campus and then will take you to NY to do the finals in person. Interviews are mostly behaviorally based and not too difficult. Overall positive experience, very kind interviewers with no stress tests

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at American Express.

    Interview

    No technical questions asked in both on-campus interview and on-site interview.
    Basically, they went through resume. And ask questions about your experience.
    It seems to me that they prefer people with good communication skills.
    You have the chance to ask current employees about their roles in American express in the super day.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at American Express (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Applied via university career fair. Had on campus interview, and spoke with two interviewers. One technical and one behavioral. The questions were basic questions about java and sql, but there were also cognitive questions that were pretty tricky. After that, the behavioral questions came and the whole interview process took about an hour an a half.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at American Express (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I met with American Express representatives at a school career fair, and scheduled an interview with them the next day. This first round of interviews consisted of 30 minutes of resume review and logic questions, and another 30 minutes of writing programs on paper. It was absurdly easy. Basic intro class stuff. The second interview I had with them was at a "Super Day." That was a 5 hour event of an individual interview (similar format to the first interview), an online coding assessment, and an online group coding assessment (in a group of 4-5). The coding assessments were much harder, and possibly harder than any technical interview I had ever done.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Express (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I Interviewed for a Software Engineering Internship position. I talked to American Express at my university's career fair then scheduled to interview with them on campus a few days later. On campus interview was very easy (Do you know java, how do you make a class...) with a few logical questions. I was next asked to visit their 'Super Day' at the Phoenix Office. The Super Day event was much more difficult than any of the previous interviews and was pretty disorganized. There was a coding challenge which required dynamic programming (which no one completed in 30 minutes), additionally there was a 1 on 1 interview where the interviewer seemed bored out of their mind (similar easy java questions to on campus interview). Lastly there was a 'Team Hackerrank' where you and a random team of a few other people (also interviewing for the intern SWE position) with a question full of typos (Index starting at 0 at one line, starting at 1 on another, impossible to tell which was correct...), very few teams even understood the problem and my team's moderator actually got extremely upset at us. And yet they gave me an offer... Weird process.
