    Flight Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at American Airlines in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, a week later received prompt to take personality test, a week or two later received prompt to take automated video test, 3 weeks later received prompt to interview in person, they gave me a date (note: not multiple dates, just one date that could work). It's a group interview and then they choose a select group to go on the one on ones..what they tell people is that everyone gets an individual exit interview, but what really happens is a few people get taken to another room where they are waiting to be interviewed one-on-one more intensely. If they ask to fingerprint you on the spot, you're in...if you get to the one-on-ones they might hire you in the future, if you get neither...they didn't want you at all. Most of the girls who were fingerprinted were young and beautiful...and all of the graduation class as well was young and beautiful...

    As to the interview questions they def have a catalog they pull from and mix and match in each individual groups...

    Account Representative (Cargo) Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at American Airlines in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    The culture seemed great and you could tell the interviewers enjoyed their workplace. However the interview was very unorthodox in that they interviewed two people at once. So five of us at the table including myself and the other candidate. They *said* we were not competing directly against each other, but still that kind of interview sets the stage for one candidate to look inferior, and unfortunately I had less relevant experience than the other guy. So despite having more personality I came across as the "lesser" candidate.

    Station Agent Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at American Airlines in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was called and given times for interviews. I arrived at the ticket counter and given a "boarding" pass to make it through TSA. The interview was near the gate. This was a group interview that was meant for 3 people but the third was late and was disqualified from the interview. We were then told about the benefits (which I hate being teased about) and started the interview. There were about 7 questions in all. Pretty basic. The interview was pretty relaxed but the group interview was my main problem. Was told that I should either expect a call or email. (Call means you got the job, email means no)

    Very professional and thorough process. I was impressed with the Recruiting Department and Talent Services. They had a lot of candidates to select from and I feel they asked the right questions and made you feel comfortable during the entire process.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at American Airlines in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    Flew out to Dallas for in-person interview. Started with a group interview and presentation on the company and job description. They then called us in one by one for a one-on-one interview and if we passed, offered us a job on the spot. We then went back to AA medical for finger printing, physical exam, drug test, vision screening, hearing test and blood tests. After you passed you were invited for a six-week training session in Dallas. They pay for your hotel and meals and transportation to and from the training. Training was Monday-Saturday 7 am - 5 pm with Sundays spent studying for the weekly tests that you were required to pass to stay in the class. After you pass the 6-weeks of unpaid training, you are officially offered the job and assigned a base in one of Eagle's hub-cities: LA, Chicago, New York, Miami or Dallas.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at American Airlines in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    – 1: apply only
    2: receive an email saying that i would have to do a online interview ( they would make you dress like if you are doing a face to face interview they would ask you a your self and why do you want to become a flight attendant).
    3: you would receive a call from their offices to schedule you for a interview in Dallas TX.
    4: in the interview there where 25 of us the would put you in groups of 5-6. There was a group activity you have to chose 3 things that all of you guys have in common and one thing that by looking at you people wouldn't know, and had to guess what who was associated to their interest/hobby. Then after that they would call you and do another group interview they would ask you about 5-6 questions. after the group interview they would take you to the same room that you started. they would show you a video about the company after they would start calling people one by one, so apparently if you get picked they would do a one on one interview and your finger prints.I wasn't selected for those final two steps after the group interview. Finally, they would send you back to the airport
