Received screening interview with HR basic questions about your resume. Then invited me to a phone interview with the hiring manager. The interview with the manager was ok. She had a lot of questions and they are really interested on what you know about excel.

I first applied online in December and received a call at the beginning of February that they wanted to fly me to Dallas, Texas for an interview the following week. It was a group interview setting, not intimidating, and it was about an hour long. After that, I was right back on the (American Airlines) plane and headed back home!

I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at American Airlines in February 2015.
First round was over the phone with very analytical questions such as how to calculate contribution margin and profitability of flights. Second round was with multiple managers on site rotating for 30 minutes each. Very industry specific questions so if you are not familiar with the airline industry they can be difficult to answer. Interview followed a survey/questionnaire format with little room for candidate to ask questions about the day to day activities

I applied online. The process took 6 days – interviewed at American Airlines.
Interesting way to be interviewed with 3 other candidates. Waited in the ticket counter area for 40 minutes due to the interviewer running late, then taken in a office area with 3 other candidates to be interviewed at the same time. Three managers took turns asking questions and we all took turns answering the questions. Easy and friendly environment. I enjoyed the whole process. No negatives that I can think of during the whole process.

Interviewed on Jan. 20, 2015 it was a panel interview. The questions were pretty average as group interviews go, there was also a short computer assessment. The group consisted of about 10 candidates, a tour of the call center took place. The interviewers stated that we would hear back from them soon. American Airlines seems to be a great company to work for, the benefits and salary seem about average for an entry level position.

The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at American Airlines (DFW, TX) in January 2015.
A week after applying I was emailed a schedule stating that I could choose my interview time from the slots offered. I showed up for the interview with documents requested to be filled out. They were doing 3 person group interviews with an American mgr. and a union steward. The interview was a pleasant experience and I immediately moved to the next step of fingerprinting and drug screen. They said it could take 4-6 weeks and as of right now it's been just over four weeks. NOT SURE IF I GOT THE JOB OR NO because I haven't heard a thing since that day. Just confused because I felt I would be hired with experience.
