    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at American Express.

    Interview

    Overall it was very manageable. During the in-person interview, I met with 3 interviewers and then a bunch of other team members just to get to know each other. It wasn't too intense, but I still felt like they gave me a chance to really prove that I deserved the position.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Express (London, England (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview began with a walk through of my CV. This was followed by general competancy questions. This was followed by a presentation of analysis completed in a previous role. I guess they were looking to get a sense of each candidates analytical skills. Finally, it finished with questions for the interviewers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at American Express.

    Interview

    The process took forever! I applied online on early December in additional to an internal referral. I got a quick reply from the HR/Recruiter (with AMEX use an external agency), the recruiter did a quick 10-min interview about my background and the basic info. A week later, I got another call from a different recruiter, asked me the same basic questions. A week later, got a phone interview scheduled with the hiring manager. No status or anything after the phone interview. Totally thought I bombed it. With the holidays, I gave it a couple weeks before hearing back. Never heard back, i followed up with the recruiter, was told the hiring leader is on PTO, waiting for her to return. Two weeks went by, nothing. Then another two weeks went by, finally got an email from ANOTHER recruiter (third recruiter), asking my availability for 2.5 hours in-person interview in the NYC office. Told her my availability, never hear back, had to follow up again. Finally got the interviews scheduled, traveled all the way to NYC (WITH NO REIMBURSEMENT OF TRAVEL). Thought the interviews went okay, mostly behavior questions, people were nice to talk with.

    A week went by, didn't hear anything. I got an offer from another company, but i wanted this position because it sounds interesting based on the description. Followed up with the hiring leader, NO REPLY. Followed up with one other person. NO REPLY. Finally days later, I got a message from AMEX saying "Your application has been cancelled, and your position will not be filled at this time."

    Please work on the communication! I wasted more than TWO months on this one position, working with three HR people, went through 2.5HR interviews, had the most patience and positivity, BUT GOT A HUGE RUDE REJECTION EMAIL IN RETURN. It seems they didn't want to hire anyone in the first place, should have communicated to me and not wasted my time.

    The process took almost one month. I was referred by a friend. First I got a email the HR wanted to interview me on the next day, but she disappeared the next day. Later on she contacted me again and we talked about 5 minutes on the phone. Two weeks later I was informed to have an on-site interview with the senior manager and the director. Senior manager asked me some technical things, and the director asked behavioral questions.
