Ik heb via rekrutering gesolliciteerd. De procedure duurde 2 weken. Ik heb gesolliciteerd bij American Express (Burgess Hill, Engeland (Verenigd Koninkrijk)) in juni 2021.
Waste of time. Applied after having been contacted by an internal recruiter. During the initial conversation with the recruiter I outlined my rough salary expectations for the role and was told that seems fine so proceeded further with the interview process.
First stage consisted of a group panel interview with 3 other AMEX employees consisting of other engineers, as well as an Engineering Manager. Was asked to complete a simple coding challenge followed by some behavioural questions.
All went well, next stage was a chat with a Solutions Architect and the Hiring Manager. Questions were a mix of behavioural culture fit as well as technical design questions. This was my favourite part of the interview as it felt like a normal conversation about technical processes, the stack, and how one works and ones experience with software engineering. No bogus leetcode questions or “What is a HashMap”.
After the final interview I had a catch up call with the internal recruiter who once again requested salary expectations. Mentioning them once more I got a follow up phone call offering 17k under my expectations. I was then told they would not budge on this amount.
I struggle to understand the point of asking salary expectations and agreeing with them, carrying forward with the interview, only to then offer me a salary severely under what was discussed.
Word of warning: don’t bother interviewing as they will try to lowball you on the salary.
