    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at American Express in February 2016.

    Interview

    Had 3 rounds of interviews with about 3 people each. Each interview is scheduled for 30 minutes at a time. You have to be sure to sell yourself in a short period of time. The process is long. You have to be very patient, which can be difficult. They really vet their candidates to make sure you will fit in. Not only about skills, personality is important too. HR was in contact the entire time. Good communication.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I went through 4 separate rounds:

    1) phone screening with HR;
    2) hiring manager and senior person in the team;
    3) another senior person based in different location
    4) two senior persons in internal business partner and again with HR and hiring manager

    All the above process took 3 weeks but for the following 2 weeks no feedback. On the day exactly two weeks since the last interview, I contacted HR to ask about any update. HR asked me my best time for phone call and I responded with two options. Unfortunately, they never called me.

    I was wondering if it is common for an employer never to give an update after a long interview processes. It might be relatively fair to get no response after online application or initial phone-screening interview only but my situation is having gone through 4 rounds of interview and presumably I am one of finalists. But they never called me even after arranging phone call day/time with me. I waited the entire afternoon that day for them to call or email me on any update because they said they will call me on the day they are supposed to reach out to me.

    Anyone experienced the same thing?

    Varies by group, most are 4-5 30min interviews with various peers or leaders to get your honest responses. What you should say varies by group so reach out to individuals before hand to truly understand the culture.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in December 2012.

    Interview

    I received a call from the Recruiter who actually works for AllegisTalent2, not American Express. I found him to be extremely cocky on the phone and way too casual. The best way I can describe the conversation... he spoke to me like I was a buddy hanging out with him at a bar or in a frat house. Odd. Anyway, my resume was forwarded to the Hiring Manager. I had a phone screen with the Hiring Manager. Subsequently, I followed up with the Recruiter 2x and never heard back from him.

    Amex has such a great reputation. But I must say that after speak to the Recruiter, who represents Amex, I was a bit turned off.
