Station Agent Interview

Station Agent
Hebron, KY

I applied online - interviewed at American Airlines in July 2014.

Interview Details – I applied early June. Received call on July 17th. She gave me a choice of different interview dates and times to choose from. Had the interview July 22nd. I didn't have a group interview. It was only the interviewer and I (interviewee). She discussed what the airline was all about, my job description, what the job duties I will be doing, training process, and benefits. I had to sign the job description if I agree. She then asked a couple basic interview questions. For example, I was asked How would I handle an irate customer who flight has been delayed. After the interview I was told the interview paper was going to be sent to human resources for a decision and I would here from them by Friday. She called Thursday to tell me they would like to give me the job. Friday July 25th I came in to fill out paper work for the background checks. Afterward I went to the ID office to get my fingerprints taken. Then on the same day I went to take my drug test. The background check was to take 7 to 10 business days. I was called on the 8th day and was offered the job. I start Aug. 18th.

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at American Airlines.

Interview Details – You need copies of your diplomas, passport, social security cards, etc. for background checks. Often group interviews, multi page questionaires, and tours of the station and operations.

Interview Question – Not necessarily a question but as a station agent you need to be prepared for all aspects and worse case scenarios...our group got a tour of the ramp, loading cargo bins, emptying the lavs, trying to give you the gross out factor.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations, take it or leave it salary rate.

Station Agent Interview

Station Agent
Wichita, KS

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed 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)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at American Airlines in February 2013.

Interview Details – Applied the beginning of December. Received email about group interview January 31. Interviews were Feb 1. Mine was scheduled for 9:30, but didn't start until 11. Nonetheless, interview went pretty good. Three basic questions, that I can't remember right now. Exactly two weeks later (Feb 15) I received email saying I was selected for the position. I was super happy. I start the background/medical check next week. Yay!

Station Agent Interview

Station Agent
Greer, SC

I applied online - interviewed at American Airlines in January 2008.

Interview Details – Back in late '07, I applied online. The positions are highly sought after as the travel industry benefits are great. It took a few weeks to get contacted for an interview. They were all held on one day and were short periods of time. One unusual thing. We interviewed in a group of about 6. I had mixed feelings of "may the best man win" and "I will crush you". The GM has been with the company for most of his career life and is a great dude ... but with the fragility of the airline industry, he knows that the bottom line is what will keep their station open and is all business.

Interview Question – The questions weren't too unusual. A lot of "are you willing to work outside in poor conditions under intense deadlines" types. One lady went on "about" or some other website and looked up "how to interview well". I've looked at these as well, but you can't just cut and paste ... you have to learn how to smoothly blend the good qualities in with your own nature. She almost quoted AA's company website (I think she had it in a book) about their vision, but it didn't fit the context of the question. Btw, if you say that you aren't willing to work under any conditions or you are afraid of heavy manual labor, don't expect a call back.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There's not much negotiating in this business. Everything is pretty much written down and you will take it or leave it. Most folks don't get into the airline industry for the money, as much as they do for the benefits. But if you work hard, you can increase both over time.
