    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at WestJet in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I'm not sure if there was much judgment going on during the group interview portion. We introduced ourselves to the group and said 2 truths and 1 lie. One of the tasks: Prioritize items to bring on a life raft. Answers in the one-to-one interview were not as important as behaviour. I remained conversational.

    Flight Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at WestJet in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied on-line on their website on Monday March 24th 2014, on Tuesday the following day got an email inviting me to an interview for that Sat the 29th. Super excited. Researched the company and its routes, A/C and such. The interview process was 3 hours. Started with a group activities and group introductions. there was 26 of us to start with. After the intro's we were split into two groups of 13 people and the first group went to one-on-one intierviews and the second group stayed behind and participated in some group activities.. '60 seconds of fame' - they give you a topic and you have 60 seconds to talk about it - mainly to see your attitude, your language skills and how you handle being put on the spot. Questions could be "you've just hit someone's car in the parking lot but noone saw it - what would you do?" or "you just learned that you've been schedule one extra shift that falls on your day off that you've made big plans for - how do you handle that obsticle?" - Once the people that are doing one-on-one are done then you switch and your one-on-one takes place.
    During that interview they ask behavioral questions... "tell me about a time, that you've had a negative situation and you've made it positive". After all the one-on-one are done the information session takes place. THis is the part where they inform you about the job, how it works, scheduling, how to pick up extra days if you like, days off, bidding, vacation and compensation. They also open the floor for questions so you can ask them to clarify things for you. And that conclude the interview session

    Aircraft Material Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mississauga, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mississauga, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at WestJet in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication consisted of a relatively brief phone interview. In person interview consisted mainly of behaviour based questioning. Example: "Please describe to us a time when you had to mediate conflict in the workplace."

    Interview Questions
    • If you have difficulty thinking on the fly and recalling specific situations that apply to the behaviour based questioning, you will find the whole interview difficult. You need to be able to clearly outline the situation that you encountered, the task you needed to complete, the actions you took to complete that task, the result of your actions and finally how it could relate to the position you are applying for.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation phase to speak of. This is a fairly low level position, with no direct reports, and plenty of applicants every time a spot opens up.
