    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Century City, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interviews were informative and very casual. I learned a wealth of information from each of the three interviews. I am thankful for the information that was explained and provided. It was an initial phone interview, followed by a face-face, and concluded with a final phone interview. I enjoyed all three interviews.

    Product Marketing Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Minneapolis, MN) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter within a week. We scheduled a brief phone screening, and then I was brought in for an in-person interview. My only complaint was that I was told I was meeting with one person, when in fact I was meeting with three. There was also a writing exam portion that I was not informed of in advance, but it was fairly straightforward. I didn't end up getting the job, but the recruiter called to tell me I "couldn't have done anything differently," they just went with someone with a financial background instead...can't blame them. Overall, an incredibly positive experience and I liked every Ameriprise employee I met.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise.

    Interview

    Pretty odd. Asked questions that seemed to be taken out of a "How to Interview Someone for Jobs" book. They spoke of the position as if it was impossible. I'm not sure what they were looking for, but it must not be someone who is registered with experience in the industry.
