    Senior Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Minneapolis, MN) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with HR and then an in person interview. The interview was over an hour and panel style with the hiring manger and another manager. They asked behavioral type questions, and a lot of them. After the interview they asked for my references and even called a few of them. I was expecting to get a job offer, instead the HR person emailed me and said they decided to hire an internal candidate. Who calls your references and then doesn’t give you an offer? My references had only good things to say about me so that was not the issue. A few weeks later, they called me to interview for another position. I did another phone interview with a different HR person. I was told I would be called back for an in person interview. After a week, I checked back with HR and was told I would hear something soon. However, I never heard back anything and after that never bothered to follow up again. I would not want to work for this company if they can’t even show respect to candidates by following up. Also the fact that they called my references and then did not make an offer was very annoying!

    Advisor Center Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Las Vegas, NV

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Las Vegas, NV).

    Interview

    I met a recruiter from Ameriprise at a university career fair and she set me up with an interview. Overall, it was a pretty quick process. My interview went well, I was asked mostly behavioral based questions and I had to role play during a "phone call". Hopefully, it will go well. I've seen many negative reviews about the advisor center in Las Vegas, so I hope my experience is a positive one. Ameriprise sponsors the series 7 and 66 exams during my internship, which is a great opportunity.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    Applied online, received phone interview with HR within a week. I then was given two 30-minute interviews with the hiring manager and Director. Two days post interviews, I moved to the final round with the VP of the department. I was not selected for the position. All interviews were very behavioral based, which is normal for the company. It was also very conversational and easy in my opinion, until the interview with the VP.

    Customer Contact Professional Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Minneapolis, MN) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter on Monster the same day that I posted my resume. I was advised to apply for one of two Csr positions in order to continue the hiring process.
    I applied for the series 7 job first. I passed two assessment tests. Then I had a phone interview with the same recruiter that found me on Monster. She told me more about the job and then asked me like 3 behavioral questions. I was asked to meet the hiring leaders next.
    I was interviewed by two hiring leaders. One of them didn't like my responses I guess. I didn't get that job but the recruiter asked me to apply for the series 6 position and I'd be pushed forward to the face to face interview. A week after I felt confident the second time around. Now awaiting feedback.
