I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at American Airlines.
Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – 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 and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at American Airlines in May 2011.
Interview Details – 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.
Reason 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 and the process took a day - interviewed at American Airlines in November 2009.
Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – If you had to start an airline today, what would you do? View Answer
Reason 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.
I applied through other source and interviewed at American Airlines.
Interview Details – Screening thru 'People' to be placed in a candidate pool. Candidates resume is forwarded to hiring manager. Hiring manager will conduct a group interview before individual interviews.
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at American Airlines in April 2009.
Interview Details – 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.
