Foreign Exchange Specialist, North Sydney Interview

Foreign Exchange Specialist, North Sydney

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at American Express.

Interview Details They were hopless. I got an initial call with some questions, I was advised that a call next week will be made and an interview arranged. 3 weeks later I got the call finally with a day and time for the interview. I was advised that an email with details of location will be send, no email received and on the day of the interview I got a call from the manager to advise that she will be late. I told her that I did't get confirmation so I am not comming. She apologiezed and told me she will ring next week with new interview details. I got the call from HR and we talked about a date for the interview, I was told again that an email will be send to confirm. Needless to say I am still waiting for the email.

Marketing Analyst Interview

Marketing Analyst

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at American Express in April 2012.

Interview Details Applied online via the AMEX website and was asked for a time for a phone interview within a week. After the phone interview, the hiring manager followed up a day later to set up a time for the in-person interview. Unfortunately, it was difficult to align the proposed interviews times with the directors/managers I would be meeting with. After radio silence for a week, I followed up with the hiring manager and was told the team ended up hiring someone internally and didn't need me to come in anymore.

Interview Question – Basic screening questions about resume and relevant experience as it pertains to the positions.   Answer Question

Manager, Business Development Interview

Manager, Business Development
New York, NY (US)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at American Express in June 2014.

Interview Details 2 phone interviews with recruiters (Allegis Global) then face-to-face with the hiring manager. The questions are what you would expect: reasons for leaving current job, skills, expectations. The hiring manager was friendly and explained the team and job responsibilities in details. However, after the interview, I have not heard back from either the recruiter or hiring manager for over 4 weeks, not even after follow-up emails; should at least inform candidate of the rejection for the sake of professionalism

Interview Question – example of team coordination   Answer Question
