    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Delta Air Lines (Atlanta, GA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    After a one-on-one first round, their super day was a very typical series of behavioral questions. There were also some technical ones related to the airline industry specifically on that last day. The other reviews here did a great job of highlighting the types of technical questions to expect. Behavioral ones are ones you might encounter anywhere (behavior in teams, how to handle deadlines, etc.)

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Delta Air Lines (Atlanta, GA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Delta Air Lines (Atlanta, GA) in November 2009.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Delta Air Lines (Atlanta, GA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Fairly straightforward interview process. Study past questions on glassdoor because many came up in the interview. It's also important that you go into the interviews with a working knowledge of the airline industry. They want to see candidates who have put in the time to learn a little about their complex industry beforehand. Know basic accounting. All interviewers were very personable and want you to succeed in the interview.

    First interview was on-campus and lasted about 40 minutes with a division manager. The super day consisted of 3-40 minute interviews with other managers which were all similar in format - behavioral, analytical, and technical questions.
