    Senior Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email within two weeks from the recruiter for an initial phone interview. The phone interview with the recruiter was very informative and professional, and covered an overview of the interview process. The recruiter then scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager where we discussed my background, interests, and why I want to work for American Express.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY).

    Interview

    1. Initial phone screening with a recruiter (30 minutes): Pretty basic questions about your background and why you want to work for Amex and/or Business Strategy Execution Team
    2. Phone Interview with Director (30 minutes): More behavioral than initial screening, with some overlap regarding why you want to work for company and team
    3. In-person two-part Interview with Directors (1 hour): The first part is a case (30 minutes), and the second part is a PowerPoint presentation on a topic of your choice (30 minutes)
    4. In-person interview with VP (30 minutes): A combination of behavioral questions and fit questions

    Pros: Everyone with whom I interviewed was very nice, which put me at ease almost immediately
    Cons: The process took an extremely a long time

    Marketing Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    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 a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Ridiculously drawn out and inconsiderate of your time. Definitely a picture of what is to come. There are questions asked that are designed to trip you up which is not cool.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at American Express (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    My interview process happened to be very long. It began in the beginning of December and stretched through to February from holidays and vacations. First a phone interview with the recruiter, then a phone interview with the director, then an in person interview with the director and the team. Standard but definitely difficult. High pressure.

    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.
