Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at American Airlines in September 2015.

Interview

They offered me an interview after meeting them at my university career fair. I had a 30 minute interview the next day that was a mixture of behavioral and technical questions. They e-mailed me about 2 weeks later letting me know I made it to the second round, an excel case interview round. An analyst called me and then I had one hour to complete an excel case and send it back.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Airlines (Ann Arbor, MI) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Firstly they asked my plan after graduation and then asked me whether I need sponsorship or not. And then they gave me three piece of paper with accounting questions on it. Most of the questions were learned in my intermediate accounting class. And then they asked me some personal opinion about the balance sheet and some practical questions about the company and the entire air industry.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Airlines in February 2015.

    Interview

    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. Also make sure you have scenarios prepared for challenge behavioral questions they ask I would recommend using the STAR approach. The manager was really discombobulated, I was totally lost.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Airlines in February 2015.

    Interview

    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 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Airlines (Fort Worth, TX).

    Interview

    Had an hour long group interview and they told us they will make a decision weather to offer the job to someone or call us back for a second interview next week. Waited for 2 weeks when they decided we need to come in for a second. The second was 2 hour long in a freezing dinning room. To do a computer test by typing up a word document, basic excel and creating a power point slide. Waste of time!

    I was referred by an employee for a Financial Analyst position. I had an initial phone interview with the HR which had some case and as well behavioral questions. After few days I was called for an in person interview in Tulsa OK. The interview difficulty was average to easy. The culture is laid back as you would expect in that location. The questions were more related to your background and finding a ft in terms of professional experience/education and the business

    The overall experience was great. The interviewers were quite calm and laid back. There were only 3 other candidates for the position.
