Difficult Interview

Application

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

Interview

Two back-to-back interviews with both behavioural and case interview questions. The behavioural ones are ok/easy, but those case interview questions are definitely harder. You have to know AMEX's products well enough to answer those questions. Also, I feel like they really care about anything relates to integrity. Be prepared to answer questions that "tell me about a time you betray your moral conducts" or something similar to that.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    There were two rounds. One on campus interview and one Superday at the office in NYC. The first was two 30 minute interviews and the superday was two 45 minute interviews. Each of the interviews required me to answer both behavioral and hypothetical case questions. The case questions were very vague and really served to show how I thought not necessarily the quality of my answers. The best way to prepare for the interview is to know your resume front and back and how each experience would make you a good candidate for the job youre going out for. Also, I would do a lot of research about the company. Know how they use big data, the closed loop system, and the purpose of coffee chats. I would also know a few programs they do outside of their core business model like their 1:1 model and small business saturdays. The more you show you know about the company the better you will look!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    First round interviews were over skype; two back to back then if you final round Amex flies you out to NYC. There is another 2 back to back interviews with similar questions. All the interviewers were extremely kind and professional; however, Amex's internal recruiting team lacks organization and is very unprofessional - they tend to ignore your emails or phone calls.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Express.

    Interview

    I applied through my university and was selected for a first-round interview. There were 2 45-minute back-to-back interviews. Questions were mostly behavioral, but a few were situational. Interviewers were reading the questions off of a sheet and taking notes, so the interviews didn't feel very spontaneous. The interviewers were nice.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you had to make a difficult decision.
      Tell me about a time you had to handle a stressful situation.
      If you were told you had to lead marketing campaigns in 3 cities, what questions would you ask and how would you implement the campaigns?

      + plenty of other questions already posted by others.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Process was very smooth and quick. Everything happened within a weeks times between the first and second interview. Amex responded quickly within 24 hours after the interviews and the questions and structure of the interview were what were to be expected. Unlike other companies I interviewed for, Amex took a keen interest in my extracurricular interests, which most definitely embodies the type of culture they have.

    Huge building swarming with people doing analytics. Very difficult to see how one would make a contribution...even the people interviewing me had a difficult time describing that they contributed or even their departments. Friendly people, but seemed lost.
