    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at American Airlines in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Networking with existing employees really helped me gain a lot of insight into their day to day work, and helped me be more confident during my interviews. Knowledge about TCO, procurement steps and basic airline knowledge help. They are looking for outgoing individuals who are not afraid of digging into an issue and solving it.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at American Airlines in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    First interview happened at the university's career fair. Consisted of 1 on 1 interview with a Purchasing manager that consisted of some behavioral questions and case interviews. Got a call a few weeks later to interview at headquarters in Fort Worth. This interview consisted of 3 separate interviews with managers from the purchasing organization. This was mainly case interviews in which they give you a situation and you must come up with a suitable answer.

    Negotiation was accomplished by telling the hiring manager the average salary that new MBA students receive for this job position. The company did not match the salary but they did offer a bonus and some airline miles.
