    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Delta Air Lines (Atlanta, GA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I knew about the process through the Business School, and there was a presentation from the company and the MBA associate program. After that I sent my cover letter and cv and got an interview round. The first round was face to face by 2 directors, took around 40 minutes. In addition, by the end of that very week I was also interviewed in Skype by the person accountable for the program. The last interview was mainly focused on explaining my cover letter.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    The first round consisted of two technical interviews, focused around specific metrics used in airlines. Second round was three technical interviews and followed the same format, including a lunch with current associates from the program. Delta seemed very focused on not only your technical ability, but also your fit with the company, interest in airlines, and desire to live in Atlanta.

    The offer decision took 3 weeks.
