    Interview

    The interviewers were very friendly, but started off telling me this isn't an interview more like a get to know you type meeting. One of the interviewers explain he was a psych major, and kept repeating that this wasn't an interview, and started asking personal questions about my life. He also was open with how he got to the position he's in now. Explain that they aren't looking for an admin right now, cause they don't know if they can afford it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Minneapolis, MN) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Phone, hiring manager in person, team member in person, HR in person and Sr Level in person. Process was typical for any large corporation. Challenges with outsourced hiring coordinators with getting complete information on the interviews and why a random phone call or email confirming interviews with people I've never heard of.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Minneapolis, MN) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Had a brief phone interview with a HR rep, she asked the basic questions like "Why do you want to work at Ameriprise?" Then a week later I moved on to the in person interview with the hiring manager. Both were very casual interviews, not stressful at all. It seemed like they were looking for more of a personality fit than stressing about what skills I have. After the in person interview they told me that I would receive an offer in a few days. Ameriprise seems like a great company and I could definitely see myself working there, however I declined and accepted an offer at another company that offered a higher salary and more vacation.
