Strategy Analyst Interview
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at American Airlines (Fort Worth, TX).
You send in your resume and cover letter and if selected, you get a call for a phone screening. After that there is a skills assessment that consists of a case that needs to be completed in 60 minutes. You get the case, build an access model and write a memo of your findings. If you pass that round you are invited to headquarters to meet with different departments, which could be with 4-5 people from each department in a half day setting. If you meet with two departments, it is a full day interview with 8-10 people in 30 minute chunks. For lunch you go out with staff members of the teams you interview with.

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at American Airlines (Dallas, TX) in January 2013.
Poor communication, the process is spread throughout all the MBA's, so there are many people dealing with your case and no one point of contact. The process is also quite lengthy for that reason. The interviews themselves are interesting and engaging, and not too tricky. 1. Phone interview 2. Timed online excel case 3. 3 On-site interviews & networking with managers and analysts

The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at American Airlines in November 2010.
I had a first round interview, followed by a case, and was then flown down for a day of interviews and social activities. Throughout the process, the interviewers were friendly and asked interesting questions. They all clearly wanted to assess my ability to think through problems, whether the scenario was airline industry based or a random topic.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Airlines in November 2009.
It was a standard interview process with the interviewer going through a list of questions and taking notes after every answer. I got the feeling that they were quite experienced with the process as they had a standard set of instructions to the candidate. They were interviewing a lot of candidates and they said that the process would take 2 months. The structure of the interview was clearly laid out with details about next steps provided.
