    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process is standard for a large company like American Express. However, I felt it was disorganized, and that influenced my decision to decline an offer. They use an HR agency, so the people who screened me were a little out of touch. There were many threads of communication - three people were handling my application on the HR side, which lead to lots of confusion over who to speak to and about what. After that, I had 4 interviews with 2 managers, a senior manager, and a director. Coordinating these interviews were a little insane - I had to come in for two rounds, but two interviews were done virtually due to a coordinating snafu. Even the hiring manager expressed some resentment over the HR system. Overall very disorganized and everyone asked me the same exact questions. I was offered a very generous salary that was fair and calculated based on my current position and role - however, I turned it down for a better opportunity.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The position I applied is for the Affiliate program. Started with a phone interview with a contracted recruiter, who honestly didn't know the full extent of what the team is looking for. And then I met with recruiting managers onsite. I was a little surprised they didn't get back to me after the onsite interview. As someone previously mentioned, it was a little unprofessional given the fact that it's AMEX. If they haven't reached out to you in a week or two, then you should probably move on.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The first round was a telephonic interview, the company was looking to augment their credit card business by rolling out schemes and needed credit analysts. I got this through a consultancy that I applied via my university career portal.

    Interview Questions

    • I was given a scenario where if a new scheme was being rolled out: If a customer spent $30 on itunes he would get cash back of $5. What important aspects or info would you look at to roll out such a scheme.

      I was then asked from my past experiences, an instance where you directly benefitted the company, explanation how I went about it.   1 Answer

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

    Interview

    I applied for every marketing analyst position I could. Also if you get multiple interviews try not to tell each group your interviewing for other groups...be vague and don't tell recruiter or else they'll fix you with only one team when techinically their policy goes against that

    Interview Questions

    • Make sure to know how Amex makes money and their history...give good reasons for why Amex and tell the group their your first choice   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I got offered 70k and negotiated to 75k... I wish I had negotiated to 80k ....I believe for marketing analyst they can technically go to 82k so definitely negotiate even if you told them you were fine with their initial offer ...esp if the group works longer hours than the 9 to 5 which some groups do!!!

    Strenuous but fair, had 3 people interviewing me and the interview lasted about 1.5hrs where I was peppered with questions on my technical experience and background for each role I had on my resume. 1 interviewer kept coming back to certain key points and follow-up questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Three-step process: phone screening, director/manager phone interview, on-site interview. The phone screening is by a regular recruiter to gauge your interest in the job and a partial rehashing of your resume. You will be setup with a director or similar manager for a more detailed discussion of your background and job goals. I think this is where I didn't make the cut because I said I was interested in doing more analytics when asked about my dream job. The director said the role was more of marketing and partnerships, since the data heavy lifting was done by their software engineers. The interview was otherwise easy with a few STAR questions.

    The director took a month to reply with a rejection but at least I received a notice. If I had made it to the final round, it would have been an on-site meeting.
