Flight Attendant
Los Angeles, CA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at American Airlines in June 2014.

Interview Details – After you fill out your online application, you are given an automated interview to be completed online--no interaction with any actual human beings, just a recited question and less than five minutes to get your answer together before you respond. Nor can you edit or redo your response if you misspeak or talk over yourself--you have one shot and that's it.

Interview Question – They ask what you know about American Airlines as a company as well as the most memorable customer service experience you recently had.   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Flight Attendant Interview

Flight Attendant
Dallas, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at American Airlines in June 2014.

Interview Details – Applied the last week of April, got an email and a call for an online video interview a few days later. I got a call about three weeks later from AA asking if I would be interested in flying out to DFW for a face - to - face interview. They covered the flight, but I had to pay for a hotel in TX after the interview because they could not get me back out that day. Everyone was very friendly and really helped put me at ease. There were about seven people total who interviewed my group of about 25. All of the interviewees were very friendly also. We broke off just to groups of about five and did an activity where we drew a circle and wrote three things we had in common and then each drew a line outside the circle and wrote one thing unique about ourselves. Then we sp lo it off into different groups again and did group interviews. The questions were things like "define good customer service," "what would you look for in hiring a flight attendant" "who would you choose to have dinner with if it could be anyone in the world" and "

Interview Question – "What's your favorite corporate brand and why?" I was not expecting this and I'm sure I absolutely blew it. All of the other questions related to flight or preparation for the position, so this one caught me off guard.   Answer Question

Flight Attendant Interview

Flight Attendant
Dallas, TX

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at American Airlines in July 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and received an invitation for a per-interview online about a week later. This interview consisted of filming my answers which were timed. A few days later I received a phone call asking me to attend an interview in Texas. My flight was covered, but I had to pay for my hotel. The interview process lasted half a day. We were broken up into groups for questioning, then different groups for exercises they deemed appropriate. Afterward, we were told more about the company and position. Lastly, they called us out one by one and we were either escorted out of the building or taken to a room for a one-on-one interview.

Interview Question – What is the nicest thing you have done for someone recently?   Answer Question

I applied online and interviewed at American Airlines.

Interview Details – You arrive in the morning and they tell you what you will be doing while you're there and that you will have a one-on-one interview at the end of the day. So at the end we were all sitting in a room waiting to be called. When they called me I started walking down the hallway with the 'interviewer' and she asked me if my information was still current (a strange question, since I just recently submitted this information), I answered yes and at that time we had arrived at the exit. The 'interviewer' told me they would be in touch and said goodbye and I was out the door wondering where the one-on-one interview was they had told us we would have!? I went to the shuttle bus and the others that were already there speculated if they would get hired or not. Of course we didn't. They got to look at you all day and if they're interested in you they will keep you there to further process your application. I don't have a problem not getting the job, especially from a company that has you take three days out of your life to travel to an application event, tells you in the morning you will have a one-on-one interview and then at the end of the day basically walks you out the door. From a global company I expect professionalism and integrity and not some infantile approach.

Very Easy Interview

Flight Attendant Interview

Flight Attendant
Dallas, TX

I applied online and the process took 5 months - interviewed at American Airlines in May 2014.

Interview Details – It took me all 5 months to get to my F2F interview. Up to now i can't believe the F2F process would be that silly and all they are interested is if they like you or not... They aren't really interested in your professional way of being, not even very much focused if you do look well groomed... The 5 ones they had picked in my group were the least well dressed, but the 5 ones very off and plain people who they can easily brain wash...

Interview Question – Silly Silly Silly... Upon the group dynamic they already have in mind the ones they had liked the most.   Answer Question

I applied online - interviewed at American Airlines in April 2014.

Interview Details – Just an update: Received invitation for online interview on April 2. Completed on April 3. Just received an email to update my online application form; this is 5 weeks after online interview. If you have completed your video and still haven't heard back, just be patient. From reading posts here, it appears that it could take another couple of weeks to get an invitation for a F2F.

Interview Question – What asset do you have that AA would benefit from hiring you?   Answer Question
