    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    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.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The process itself was not engaging and it felt like the interviewer was out to get you and stump you with questions. The interviewer lacked personality and often times gave very lackluster responses to questions. When asked about diversity and inclusion practices, he gave a weak response that I probably could have obtained by researching online.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Very relaxed and quick process. I went through 3 rounds including 1 phone, 3 onsite, and then 2 additional onsite. They were all about 30-45 minutes in length. It seemed as though cultural and personality fit really do matter, and it was evident that they appreciated and expected thoughtful answers to all of their questions and cases.

    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!
