Aircraft Maintenance Supervisor At DFW Interview

Aircraft Maintenance Supervisor At DFW

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at American Airlines in July 2011.

Interview Details – AA hires out the HR function and they call them Talent Services, American Airlines i.e. IBM Business Services
I have yet talked to one person who speaks clear English. They sound like they work from home and really can’t provide any details after they have called you and tell you to call with any questions you might have.
 I’ve had better experiences talking to a wall.

FYI if you live in the SEA, PDX area you can forget about a face to face interview in DFW or TUL unless you are willing to buy a ticket with no discount. This puts you at a big disadvantage right off the bat. You will find this out after you get your e-mail on June 21st stating your interview is scheduled for June 27th. Someone from Talent Services then e-mails you asking for your information for the flight so you respond on the 21st and when you don’t hear anything after days of trying to get hold of that person they call you the night of the 26th telling you that it’s a phone interview.

One would think they might check flights and city pairs before e-mailing you and calling you about flights.

Once the phone interview is complete expect not to hear anything for up to four weeks.

Then you get an e-mail that you are going to the next level, they send you a link to another company who does back ground checks. You follow the directions to a T as stated on all the forms and blocks. Once you hit submit wait for two days and you will start to get e-mail requesting copies of documents because the company can’t verify any of the information you have submitted. Ok fare enough so you send them both scanned copies via e-mail and fax. Wait another two days and you will get the same e-mails again. You send everything again and even call to verify they received the documents if you get someone who speaks clear English you lucky and I would head straight for the lotto and buy a ticket. After six days of sending items back and forth they will tie it all together. Total days sending items back and forth are about 2 weeks.

Now they are ready to fly you out for finger prints keep in mind you still don’t have the job, nor do you get to meet the hiring manager like to the others who got flights and got the opportunity to present nice clean hiring packages and examples of past work.

In short if you live in the Northwest AA is very difficult to get on with. Look at Delta or another airline. I now see why American can’t make a profit i.e. has lost money. I mean the EPS for the last four years if not more have been in the negative. Not the AA I dreamed of as a kid and always wanting to work for.

Go LUV i.e. Southwest
