Financial Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Delta Air Lines.

Interview

They recruited on campus so I dropped my resume. The first round of interviews was on campus. The recruiter was very friendly, but the questions were pretty technical. They were heavy on accounting. The second round was on the Delta campus in Atlanta. I met with two MBA students who had been working at Delta. Supposedly, they are from departments in which Delta is hiring.

Interview Questions

  • Familiarize yourself with the different accounting statements.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Delta Air Lines (Atlanta, GA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Initially met the recruiters at a company presentation recruiting for analysts in the Financial Analysis division. Dropped my resume through the campus recruiting website and was selected for the interview. The entire first round was technical, relating to Delta. Luckily, I had networked and spoken with the recruiting manager several times so he already knew me on a personal basis. The questions were hypothetical situations that could happen at Delta and what the implications were for Financial Analysis. examples included:
    - What if Delta bought another airline, how would synergies be accomplished?
    - Given Y fixed cost, Z cost per passenger, and ABC variable costs, how many tickets would we have to sell to break even?
    - What are the financial implications when considering building a new facility? Buying a new soft drink to be served on board?

    Second round interview was at the office with two members of the team and very similar questions with a few behavioral as well. Then they gave offers.

    Interview Questions

    • What are the financial implications if Delta wants to buy a new soft drink to serve on its airlines? If it wants to build a new facility?   Answer Question
    • Given the consolidation and comicality of the industry, why do you want to work at an airline company?   Answer Question
