    College Crew Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at JetBlue.

    Interview Details

    There was a brief 15 minute phone interview where they asked questions about what attracted me to JetBlue and why I wanted to work there. It was to make sure this would be a potential fit for me. The next interview was an in person interview in Queens with the hiring manager for the department you applied for and a recruiter. They had a script and asked questions about a challenge in a previous role and how you dealt with it. Just make sure you give specific examples and don't generalize. The staff was very friendly.

    In Flight Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at JetBlue.

    Interview Details

    For external candidates, you will have a video interview. For internal candidates, a quick 5 to 10 minute phone interview.
    If selected, you will go to what the company calls, a blue review.

    Make sure you dress up, and follow all the grooming tips they provide in your email. They will be looking at how well you dress, as you will be the spokesperson for the company.

    In the blue review, you will get up in front of everyone, and quickly tell them about yourself, why inflight? and tell us something unique about you.

    After that, you will sit down with 2 interviewers, and basically be asked questions about your resume that you provide them. Nothing too stressful here. Additionally, they may have a group project to see how well you work with others. I have had one, in which, the group has to build a building with only index cards.

    Then, you will be divided up. Those asked to stay, and those, well, thanks for applying.

    At that point, you will do a reach test, a PA reading test, and then a debriefing. You will sit with 2 other candidates, and asked questions, that you must use the STAR approach to answer.

    Do your research on using the STAR method. Be very specific in your answers. And most of all, be yourself, and have fun.

    Interview Details

    I think they have the people previous selected because they declared me out of competition without interview and they decided to pursue other candidates. Is the second time that I applied and they don't give me the opportunity to challenge with others. I think they have their own candidates by referred.

    In Flight Crew Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Long Island City, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Long Island City, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at JetBlue in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online on 7/20
    Invited for Video Interview 7/29
    Invited to In-Person Interview 8/5
    Interview 8/20
    Called for Hire 8/22
    Received and Signed Offer Letter 9/26

    The key to winning this job is to be as personable as possible and to do your research about the company/interview process ahead of time.

    The video interview was odd because this group of hires was the first to test it out. We were given a question then a ten second counter appeared and we had to answer the question. It was a bit awkward because I could see myself on screen and found it distracting. At the end I was asked which would be the hardest for me working non traditional hours, working holidays or locating to a new base.

    During In-Person section we had to introduce ourselves to the entire room including all the other candidates for hire. We stated our names, where we were from, why we wanted to work at JetBlue and a fun fact about ourselves.

    When asked why you want to work there don't say because you want to travel! Everyone says that and you will not stand out/look like you just want the job for the perks. Talk about JetBlue as a company, do research and show that you think it would be a good place for you to grow and learn! When stating your fact think of something social that you do outside of work. Activities that show off your extroversion even outside of the work place really helps (i.e. being part of a sports team or performance group)

    We also did a group exercise involving building a tower from cards. It was pretty fun and we were given interesting challenges.

    They make you do a reach test and a PA test as well.

    All interview questions will follow a STAR format. Some of mine included "How did you respond to a situation at work that you found unethical?" and "Tell me about a time when you were understaffed- how did you handle the situation?"

    Make sure that you socialize with all the other candidates, shake hands etc.. People are watching you to see how social you are.

    The interview is difficult in terms of getting through the initial hoops. Many people in attendance had LoR's from people that worked in the company.

    Do what you can to stand out in the crowd. Know that the job can sometimes be difficult but don't be afraid of it! Talk about how to you turned around bad days at work with your team and how proud you were of what you've accomplished in your current job.

    Oh and one candidate got up to introduce themselves and bad mouthed the carrier that they currently work for. BIG NO-NO! Never ever talk bad about previous employers.

    Be fun and positive. You will do just fine.

Star method style interview. After that JetBlue employees ask if you have any questions about any parts of training or job. They said once you were done with everything you could leave. I left at 3pm. Everyone was there till the end, unlike what I heard from previous group interviews which apparently half the applicants were eliminated after lunch.everyone stayed. No drug tests were taken at this time. They switch up how they do things from interview to interview, you won't know what to expect.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at JetBlue.

    Interview Details

    Received an email and call from internal corporate recruiter about a week after applying online through their website to set up a phone interview about a week in advance. The recruiter called on time and was very professional the conversation was largely a review of my resume and discussion centered around my level of interest in the role. We mutually decided that this role would not be a good fit since they were looking for someone with less experience.
