Flight Attendant Interview

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Continental Airlines in September 2011.

Interview Details – Applied to the company website. Contacted almost a month and a half later.
Offered choices of dates to fly to Houston to personally interview.
No phone questions.

Arrived at group interview in the am with about 70 candidates.
As I approached the interviewer, she looked straight at me and said
Flatly, nothing special...

I was floored and astounded how absolutely rude she was.
Interviewed with a gentlemen who was also short and very impersonable.

Asked to come.back for second face.to face interview. Using the star method,
Answered questions well, I thought. Same astoundingly rude lady interviewed me.

She asked.me if I thought I was a good fit for the company and I thought.
Not really, I'm not an ***hole.

They forgot how to treat people.

Flight Attendant Interview

Flight Attendant
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Continental Airlines in October 2009.

Interview Details – The interview process for flight attendant is a grueling process and no job offer is made until you pass all of your tests during the training process. A successful initial interview is no promise of a job. Failure of any the many tests during the multi week interview process results in your expulsion. I got to the last week, and had successfully passed all the skills test for evacuation procedures when I was asked to leave, and found myself totally unemployed because I had to leave my previous job in order to go through the training the airline offered. They are rulthess in releasing you as well. The instructors are also flight attendants, and they tend to pick favorite students and can be hard on others.

Interview Questions

  • Tell me about yourself--the killer question!!   View Answer
  • Give me an example of something you have done that shows me how you deliver good customer service--not what you WOULD do   View Answer

Reason for Declining – It was mutual. I lost a job with another Airline because participated in the interview process.

I applied online and interviewed at Continental Airlines.

Interview Details – I received an invitation to interview in Houston several months after filling out their online application. It began with a brief video and orientation. Afterwards, we were called one by one for our interviews. Everyone was friendly and did their best to make us feel comfortable. Unfortunately I didn't receive an offer, but it was a good experience just the same.

Interview Question – None of them were terribly unexpected. I would say the standard behavioral questions.   Answer Question

Interview Details – After the 1 on 1 interview, I was told I would hear something in 2 weeks. I knew then that I was not going to be offered a job. Another applicant was told to take the shuttle to the airport but not tell anyone that she was to come back that afternoon for another interview.
