Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Senior Financial Analyst

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at American Airlines in November 2013.

Interview Details – I got the interview through campus recruiting. There were three rounds interviews. For the first round interview, most questions were accounting and finance technique questions. Those questions were also related to airline industry. The questions were pretty straight forward, especially for people who have finance background. All questions were fair, as long as you are prepared.

The process took a day - interviewed at American Airlines in November 2011.

Interview Details – It was a normal behavioral interview. With why American Airlines and why airlines industry questions. I was also given a mini case.

Prepare for the Why airlines industry and Why american questions. The finance mini case wasn't exactly difficult. It was a basic cashflow question.
