Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at American Airlines.

Interview Details

Applied online. The company was hiring dozens of new customer service representatives for the frequent flyer program. Received a call from HR department and scheduled an in-person interview. The interview was conducted at headquarters. It was a group interview in which everyone was asked the same question, and we took turns answering them. Afterwards, we each had to pass a basic computer skills test in Microsoft Word/Excel and answering questions from the website. Out of a group of 12-15 candidates, 3 were hired. Other groups were around the same or fewer. After passing the interview, was officially offered the position over the phone and after accepting, directed to go through a heath screen and urine test. After that, training was 3 weeks, full-time. Needed to pass some tests to pass training.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at American Airlines in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    I believe they were interviewing about 100 applicants over a 3 day period, 20 per group. Our group we all sat at a large table and were asked; What do know about AA?, Why do you want to work here? etc. Then we were given a written test on how to deal with difficult customers and how to handle it. Lastly were broken up into small groups of 2 or three and were interviewed by two managers; it was the basic HR questions and little getting to know your personality to see if you were a fit.

    Interview Questions
    • The written test contained a mathematical question with being short changed and how to deal with a customer that is difficult and has a $100 bill and you can't break it. The written test was timed, I believe you had 15-20 minutes to write down your answers for all 10 questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Starting pay was non-negotiable, but the staff advised that there were opportunities of growth within the company.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at American Airlines in November 2007.

    Interview Details

    The whole thing was very professional, if a bit impersonal. I applied online & filled out a personality quiz. Then I spoke to the recruiter on the phone to schedule an interview. When I got there, I found out I was to be interviewed at a large table with 10 other people. The group made me self conscious of my responses, but it was great getting to listen to the other answers. That allowed me to tailor what I wanted to say to not only stand out from the others, but improve on any mistakes I saw them making. We were asked to wait outside afterwards, and those who didn't get offers were called in one at a time to be told why. The rest of us received offers in the mail and got to pick which training class we wanted to participate in.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe one situation in which you had to deal with an upset client. How did you resolve the situation?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The only negotiation open to us was the training class we wanted to sign up for. Starting salary, hours, and everything were set for the group, as it's a very large company and the position is pretty low on the totem pole.
