    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Ameriprise in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    My friend told me about the interviews and he recommended me in the company, then i called at the company and fixed an interview. for preparing i took help from my friends and saw some sample interviews available on net on how to present myself during the interview.
    the company took my IQ test first, after passing the test they took 2:1 interview and after passing that round , i gave the skills test.
    during the 2:1 interview i was just honest, not trying too hard to give my answers in an exceptional way, just trying to make it simple and used a little bit humour in between the interview to lighten up the environment. confidence is the key.
    work culture is very professional there and people help each other , facilities provided were of international standards,

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Ameriprise.

    A recruiter contacted me about the position then was contacted with a location and name for the interview. Went to a panel-type interview with two people with one person mostly asking the questions and the other chiming in every now and then.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult was a language barrier at first with the person who shepherd me interview location then the main questioner arrived and took over. The unexpected aspect was that the main questioner seemed very tired and I was not at my best having rushed to the interview.   View Answer

    Corporate Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Ameriprise.

    Interview Details

    Had 2 interviews and 1 in-person interview. The in-person interview was 3 hours long with 6 different people. The lady that was supposed to meet me to take me to the first individual was late to work that day so I only got to meet in-person with the hiring manger for 20 of the 30 scheduled minutes, which I thought was very unprofessional. Then after the 3 hour interview session I didn't hear from the company for 3 more weeks with their decision. Very slow process and seemed a little misguided and unprofessional at times.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    The discussions with the employees during the interviews provided insight in to some of the unrealistic expectations of the company and shareholders that concerned me about the long-term viability of the role and department growth.

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Ameriprise.

    Interview Details

    Phone screening from recruiter, then asked to come in and interview with 3 different HR VP's. I had 3 different interviews, one with each person. I had to wait about 2 months to hear anything and it was only after I called back. Their hiring process takes very long. I did accept the job but was extremely unhappy. It was disturbing to me that I worked in HR but found HR sets the rules but the rules didn't always apply to everyone. Very unethical situations occurred and I finally left company for another company where people are honest and friendly, which is key for me. I want to feel good about the company I work for.

    Interview Questions
    • Give me an example of how you failed and what you did to rectify the situation. I found it interesting that they used the word 'fail' but found later that they were very negative people and always looking for the negative rather than the positive.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation - either accept the salary offer or not.
