    SummerMarketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at American Express (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    They were so fast in sending me the online test to complete (1hour) and following passing the test I received the video interview. Most people find it so strange but you are simply recording answers to their questions, most simple but one more challenging question where you think on the spot. I found out soon after that I had got the assessment centre and was delighted.

    They only arranged my travel and hotel the day before - very stressful

    AC was challenging but enjoyed it (8:30 am - 4pm)

    They said they would call me 1 week later

    I was called 1 week later but they said they didn't have a decision and would call in 2 weeks - this was very upsetting but I was patient

    Called over 2 weeks later to a response that I didn't get the job and at this stage I couldn't be given any feedback - disappointing

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Express (Brighton, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    1. I applied online with CV and Cover Letter
    2. I did some numerical test and logical ones (pretty easy)
    3. I did an online interview (through HireView), competency-based and "what would you do if..."-like questions
    4. Assessment centre in Brighton with 2 competency-based and background-based interviews, 1 individual case (not very hard, but there's few time plus you run the risk not to analyze all the details carefully if you rush too much --> I got flunk for that :/ ) and 1 group assignment (my experience was terrible, with people talking one over the other in order to emerge and overcome the others, completely unkind).

    In the end, interviewers are very good people (kind, fun and easygoing) BUT some parts of the process can bring you some difficulties (especially the group project)

    Business Development Summer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Express (London, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Told what was occurring a few weeks before the assessment centre, nothing to prepare for in advance, just revise your competency questions and research the company. Very friendly staff and sympathetic towards nerves (because as assessment centres go, this was early, so everyone was a first-timer). 2 competency interviews - 1 scenarios and other motivation for Amex and B/d. 1 group case study - prioritisation and contribution are key here. 1 individual presentation - study for 45 minutes and present for around 10. Breakfast, networking and lunch. All around a good day, requires focus throughout the day.
