    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at United Airlines in October 2017.

    Interview

    No networking or schmoozing, just submitted my resume and cover letter and got invited to interview. Interviews included 2 45-minute on-campus (one with a very simple case, the other pure behavioral/fit) for Round 1, and a single 45-minute in the Chicago HQ for Round 2. They invited me for R2 3-7 days after R1. They were a little slow giving me a decision after R2, maybe 2-3 weeks, and then only gave me a week to consider the offer (unusually short for campus recruiting). They were totally inflexible when it came to negotiation, which was disappointing because it wasn’t a very strong offer. Mediocre benefits, low pay, no access to company profit sharing until 2nd year, no individual/performance bonus potential, and no annual raise.
