Flight Attendant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at American Airlines (Dallas, TX).

Interview

The interview process really opened my eyes to the world of aviation and transportation. During interview, you were seated at a table of 6-8 people. Get to know these people because they are your future classmates, coworkers, froends and foes. Recruiters are watching and taking notes as they observe how you interact and listen to your peers. Games are played with the intent to observe how well you relate to others and the world in general. Each interview session has a host that will guide you through the interview and answer any questions you have. Once the recruiters have observed you in a big crowd, the will hold smaller interviews with groups of 8 people. If they decide they want you, you will be called, in no particular order, from the big room to have finger prints done and an additional one-on-one interview will be held.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at American Airlines (Dallas, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly straight-forward and easy. It took about a month to hear back on my application. I was then invited to do an online video interview. Many people have posted on here the exact questions asked, which I compiled and answered on my own before interviewing. I strongly suggest doing this so that you can think your answers out. It made me feel quite a bit more comfortable. Hopefully I will hear back for the next interview soon!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at American Airlines.

    Interview

    The questions were very straight-forward, simple questions about what you know about employee culture at American, if you work better on your own or in a team environment. The format of a video interview is definitely something to get used to, as there is no one on the other line. That would be the only challenging aspect of the interview process, to get through the first question and warm up to interviewing in the video format.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at American Airlines (DFW, TX).

    Interview

    It was a long time a go and the process has completely changed. Today you have a phone interview, then a video interview, then you are asked to go to DFW for group interviews, then one on one. If you pass all that, you have to pass a medical exam, finger prints, and I think that's it.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at American Airlines in July 2015.

    Interview

    The process took me about 3+ weeks. I 've applied for AA In the beginning of July and got a call/email letting me know that they we're interested and invited me to do a video interview. I took the time to prepare. I went on this very site and looked at all the questions other people had posted (recent) that they said they we're asked took notes on each question and how I was going to answer and everyone they ask we're Accurate. I felt that I've done a good job on the video interview and feeling pretty confident. As of now I'm waiting on a response. They already expressed that due to the number of applicants applying that it will take longer than we like to get back but I'm patient and each and everyday I'm praying that I get invited to Texas for the interview session. Best of luck to everyone!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at American Airlines (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online Monday morning, July 26th 2015, i received the offer to do the video interview a couple of hours later. I submitted wednesday (today) July 29th. This site was extremely helpful, all the questions that were listed here were the ones i was asked. I was really nervous so i stumbled on a few words and the one question i didn't want to be asked was the first one they asked which was what do you know about AA work culture? So that threw me off. I wasn't asked that but i made sure to add that i am Brazilian, i was born and raised there so my native language is Portuguese and i can speak spanish as well, in one of the questions i was able to "squeeze" that in just in case they were wondering where my accent was from. I'm hoping that this video interview is just to see our personality and to make sure we have all our teeth ( lol) and look nice! I read many reviews here where people said to try not to look at yourself and i thought that was easy until i started my interview so make sure you practice before looking at the camera, try to smile a lot and be friendly and positive in all of your answers, i did that too but i think i shook my head a lot… who knows i guess i will see if they like me or not in a few days/weeks? I hope i get called to a face to face interview I'll update if i do.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at American Airlines in July 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted my application two weeks ago and received an email yesterday inviting me to complete an video assessment. I can't lie, I was so nervous! They ask me a couple of questions before the video to see if I qualify to proceed to the actual video interview. I really prepared for the questions before the video and it made a difference. I stumbled a little at first but relieved that every question that the others said was on there was really on there. Thanks everyone for sharing your experience. You guys really make a difference. Now its a waiting process to see if I'm moving forward. Keep me in your prayers and I'll do the same.

    You complete a video interview after you apply. From what I have heard, after the video interview you are flown to Dallas to interview in person. I have not heard back from my video interview, and it was 2 weeks ago. I hear to be patient with the process! We will see what happens next.
