    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at American Airlines.

    Interview Details

    We had about ten candidates in a room, being taken out for individual interviews by different teams. It was stressful at first, but overall helped make the right decision about the company and people working for it. Interviews focused on behavioral and technical skills. After each round one or several people were let go. In the final round it was like a panel interview with over ten employees watching you create a solution for a given problem

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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 Questions
    • "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

    Interview Questions
    • What are your thoughts on social media?

      That one came a bit out of the blue in the panel interview. They passed out cards with questions on them then we took turns standing in front of the group and speaking on our topic or question. It seemed to be a test of extemporaneous speaking skill.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at American Airlines in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very efficient and professional in their organization the interview. The interview was a half-day (9:00am-1:00pm) and composed of 3 parts: an icebreaker, group interviews, and 1-on-1 interviews. I liked that they kept the number of candidates to ~30, because it created a more comfortable, less intimidating setting for all.

    Interview Questions
    • The group activity was a little awkward, because everyone is trying to get noticed, so I suggest just taking it easy and genuinely getting to know and make friends with the other equally qualified candidates.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at American Airlines.

    Interview Details

    Panel of the manager and 2 co workers. Interview went great actually, very laid back line of questioning but still relevant to the job. They are looking for personality on top of skill sets.

    Took less than a week to get the first phone interview call. Then about a week later for the actual interview. Then at work for my first day about 2 weeks after that. All in all, from start to hire - 1 month.

    Make sure you get all details of the job! I was lead to believe one job description then expected to do something else 10x what my abilities were.
