I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at American Airlines (Fort Worth, TX).
Panel of the manager and 2 co workers. Interview went great actually, very laid back line of questioning but still relevant to the job. They are looking for personality on top of skill sets. Took less than a week to get the first phone interview call. Then about a week later for the actual interview. Then at work for my first day about 2 weeks after that. All in all, from start to hire - 1 month. Make sure you get all details of the job! I was lead to believe one job description then expected to do something else 10x what my abilities were.
- What do you do for fun? 1 Answer
No negotiation. My fault…I didn't really try, I was just so eager to get a job.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at American Airlines (Dallas, TX).
I met with three managers for the interviews for about 45 minutes each. The interviews included case-style questions, mostly relating to the running of the business in the department. People were very nice, and appeared to be interested in the conversation. Prior to the interviews, I had a phone screen and also a case question via email that I had to return within a time limit.
- The case question via email was difficult because it required reading a lengthy page and then doing some calculations. There was a time limit as well. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at American Airlines (Tulsa, OK) in May 2011.
Recruiters were very helpful throughout the entire process. Flew me from home location to DFW for the interview. Day ran late, so the members of the interview panel took me to a restaurant nearby to conduct the interview - made the whole experience relaxed and enjoyable. Made it to next level and was flown to LAX for background screening. Had offer in hand a week later.
Reasons for Declining
Pay offered (told it was on the high end of their scale and was not negotiable) was too far below what I could reasonably accept.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day – interviewed at American Airlines (Dallas, TX) in November 2009.
Interviewed once at school. They flew me out to Dallas to interview me again. I had four one on one interviews in Dallas at HQ. They were pretty standard. Some airline questions, some "how do you work in a group" questions etc. Everyone was nice and seemed to enjoy working at AA.

Reasons for Declining
The flight benefits were not enough to make up for low pay and living in Dallas. I'm not really sure when I'd use the flight benefits because I would have almost no vacation time at the beginning.

Analyst InterviewNo OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at American Airlines in April 2009.
First round at my university, asking basic questions about how American airlines differs from other airline companies. Really felt a connection with my interview there. Second round at their head quarter in TX, they flew me down for 4 rounds of interview along with an excel test. Everyone was quite friendly, unfortunately, I found out at the end that they weren't really hiring... I understand that they want candidate in case a position opened up but since nothing opened up, it was quite a waste of time. They called me and said they wanted to make me an offer but since nothing was available at the moment, they'll have to wait. After that, of course, nothing really came of it.
