    Senior Manager Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Continental Airlines in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    While my interview for this position was farther back than 2009 I had to do this for the site's requirement. When I interviewed they performed this STAR interview process which includes Situation, Task, Action, Result. Everyone interviews by this standard and it is more of a "fill in the blank" process for us. If we simply have something on paper to show that the person fulfilled these requirements they are in. Realistically, we already know who we are going to hire but for the Affirmative Action aspect of our hiring we must have documentation to show that we did not discriminate.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Continental Airlines in December 2008.

    Interview Details

    Talent focussed interview with a script that a hiring manager has to follow and submit to hr. Usually process may take between 2 to 3 different interviews for this or managerial positions. Have to have specific examples - most candidates struggle with this either because they are nervous, not well prepared or just simply incompetent.

    Cargo Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Continental Airlines in May 2008.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through the Continental website and received a call for an interview a few days after. The interview took place at Newark Liberty International Airport, and I arrived early. I was ushered with 10-12 other candidates to a small breakroom and waited several hours after my appointed time. Each of us was given some paperwork to fill out while we waited. I was dropped off at the location and several people complained about the added charge for their parking for waiting so long. Continental didn't validate parking to my knowledge.

    I was finally brought to an office for a one-on-one interview which was pretty quick and simple. Basically, I was told about the job responsibilities and some questions about myself. I was offered the position that day pending a drug test, physical and background check. I returned to do the drug screening and physical. The physical isn't too hard if you're in good health with average build. If you have knee, shoulder, or back problems you will have difficulty passing this test. After the background check cleared me, I was scheduled for training about a week after my interview. Overall a bearable interview process.

    Application Details

    I applied online – 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 Questions
    • None of them were terribly unexpected. I would say the standard behavioral questions.   Answer Question
