Interview Details –
I saw postings on Continental's website for part-time and full-time positions in Norfolk for the ramp. I applied and recieved a call from HR about a week later. The HR rep was very nice and kept things pretty informal. She went through the basic qualifications, work history, and disqualifiers. Basically to confirm that you are eligible for the position and if you're a good fit. She said she would forward her notes to her supervisor and give me a call later in the week. She called me back 2 days later to confirm that I was chosen for a 1:1 interview. An email was sent to me that day with all instructions, paperwork, etc.
Sit down interview was the following Tuesday @ the Norfolk Airport in a conference room. I was being looked at for the part-time position, which there were 4 spots. 6 people were there including myself. They sat us all down and give the basic presentation with benefits info, job description, duties, company history etc. They they called us in 1 by 1 for the sit down. The sit down included 1 HR rep from Newark and the local station manager. It was pretty straight forward. Read questions directly off a sheet and took notes as you talked. After the 5 questions or so, they went over your resume one last time and opened the table for your questions. Everyone was very nice and kept me relaxed. Was told they will be contacting successful candidates by phone by the end of the week. (interview was today 6/22/2010).
Hope to hear back from them.
EDIT: Continental called me today (6/23/2010) extending an offer which I accepted.

Interview Details – Was contacted by human resources who administered a 30 min phone interview. Following day was contacted for a face to face. Two weeks later contacted for a second/final interview. Hiring Manager was very polite. Process time was average for a hiring process. Hiring Manager asked general, "what makes you the best fit for this position, how do you handle stress, etc...." They waited for compensation results which I was told is tailored to individual's experience, education and ability. For an airline, compensation is going to be relatively low compared to other industries. End result I was not offered position, likely because of my experience, Master's degree and certification, probably couldn't justify my hiring over what revenue would be driven by the position. I knew this before I applied, had a friend working there who quit to make 75% of what average PMs make so I was naturally assume they pay less than that. Just be yourself.
