Strategy Analyst Interview

Strategy Analyst
Dallas, TX (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 months - interviewed at American Airlines in January 2013.

Interview Details Poor communication, the process is spread throughout all the MBA's, so there are many people dealing with your case and no one point of contact. The process is also quite lengthy for that reason. The interviews themselves are interesting and engaging, and not too tricky.
1. Phone interview
2. Timed online excel case
3. 3 On-site interviews & networking with managers and analysts

Interview Question – Walmart is coming to your city - you own a small grocery shop, what do you do?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Signing bonus can be negotiated if you have a strong case - pay and vacation are fixed.

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at American Airlines.

Interview Details Three rounds of interview 1. Personal interview 2. Selected candidates receive a mini case to be solved through excel modelling 3. Selected candidates then go in person to dallas for the final interview
The case is mainly on revenue/yield management function within Airline industry. You get 1 hour to solve the problem and send the solution back to them. As the case utilizes excel, you are expected to do analysis - must be strong with excel functions and quick thinking.

Interview Question – Not enough time to fully analyze the mini case   Answer Question

The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at American Airlines in November 2010.

Interview Details I had a first round interview, followed by a case, and was then flown down for a day of interviews and social activities. Throughout the process, the interviewers were friendly and asked interesting questions. They all clearly wanted to assess my ability to think through problems, whether the scenario was airline industry based or a random topic.

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at American Airlines in November 2009.

Interview Details It was a standard interview process with the interviewer going through a list of questions and taking notes after every answer. I got the feeling that they were quite experienced with the process as they had a standard set of instructions to the candidate. They were interviewing a lot of candidates and they said that the process would take 2 months. The structure of the interview was clearly laid out with details about next steps provided.
