Finance Analyst Interview

Finance Analyst
Atlanta, GA

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Delta Air Lines in October 2013.

Interview Details – First round consisted of 30 minute interview with a current analyst. Questions were a mix of behavioral, technical, and problem solving. Second round consisted of a trip to the corporate headquarters for a lunch with several recent hires and two interviews with senior financial analysts and/or managers. Both interviews were 30 minutes and consisted of similar questions to the first round.

Finance Analyst Interview

Finance Analyst
Atlanta, GA

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Delta Air Lines in November 2009.

Interview Details – I initially had an on-campus interview. The interviewer was really friendly and asked finance and behavioral questions. Make sure you understand your financial concepts to answer these questions. Behavioral questions were pretty standard.
I received a call the following day to schedule an on-site interview the next week in Atlanta. Headquarters are really nice and large. Everyone I met was really nice although my first interviewer was a little awkward. There are two 30 minute interviews back-to-back and that is all for Delta. They were extremely similar to the first-interview questions, just slightly more difficult in terms of finance questions.

Make sure you know a ton about Delta. I was really busy with other interviews and a competition the weekend before this interview so I just didn't have the time to really research Delta and know everything there is about the company. I felt that this really hurt me. Know what differentiates Delta from the other airlines. Know the Northwest merger. Know Delta's history. Know about its unique culture. Also, it may be helpful to research Atlanta/have visited before if possible. They're not the kind of company that will hire really great people who don't really, really want to work for Delta. They want to know that you are extremely interested in working for them in particular.
