    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at JetBlue.

    Interview

    This interview was very fun and the recruitment team was extremely nice and welcoming. They brought us all into a big cafeteria where we met 2 current Flight Attendants. They check your passport and give you a name tag. After that everyone was finger printed. I guess they do this to avoid needing to call you back in If you are selected to move forward. Make no mistake, this is where the process begins. You are being watched at all times and the moment you step in that building put your game face on. After this you are taken into a conference room where every recruiter introduces themselves. They are all energetic and smiling. You need to match that energy level. They look for personality. I know it's hard but don't be nervous and they will tell you the same. But everyone was so cool so it's easy to feel comfortable. Next they ask you all to come forward and state 3 things. Your name, why you want to work for JetBlue, and a fun fact about yourself. Follow the instructions given for this point. Some people mentioned things they specifically said not to. After that we where asked to take a break. While in the cafeteria a flight attendant with a clipboard in hand is walking around watching everything. Again, you're watched at all times. After break we were brought back to do an activity where we built a house of cards with a team of about 4 to 5. Try to mingle with everyone and don't be in the same group you we're in for the first part. This is just to see how you work with a group. Have fun with this because again you'll be watched by 2 or 3 members of recruitment all armed with clip boards. Then you go take lunch. Have some cash or bring food. Cafeteria has awesome selections. Again mingle and change groups. By this point you will have made "friends" and you will see true colors come out. A few flight attendants from JetBlue hung around for this part too. Next you are given a presentation on what to expect while working with JetBlue. Take notes and pay attention. Ask questions. Lastly you are brought back and you start the face to face interview. You have 2 of those then you read a PA out loud for 20 seconds. They want to see your personality. Smile be bubbly and friendly but be authentic. They can tell. After that you are released for the day. No one gets cut in this interview process. Everyone will be allowed to go through the entire process. Please dress appropriate. Suit and and tie. Ladies just be polished and professional. Also don't pull out your phone. Leave it on silent or off and put it away. If you can't go through this process without looking at your phone then this job is not for you anyway because you can't have it on in the plane right? Right! Good luck. I hoped this helped. The one's in My group that did what I said here got hired. They say you will get notified within a week. A few of us exchanged numbers and kept in contact. The people that got a yes receive a phone call within one or 2 business days. The no group received an email. Have fun with this.

    Revenue Management Analyst Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at JetBlue (Long Island City, NY).

    Interview

    Applied online, recruiter got back to me within days to set up a phone interview. Chatted with a manager for about an hour. Was asked a few brainteasers, talked about what they were looking for and how my qualifications fit in. Even with the brainteasers, really laid back, conversational, and informative. Got an email from the recruiter the next day asking me to come in for an in-person the following week. - 5/5; appreciated the communication and they hooked me in by speaking directly with a manager immediately. phone interview was different and interesting. Met with a head recruiter, who asked me standard questions about work culture (tell me about your background. how do you handle deadlines? what do you currently do?) and discussed salary range and benefits. Really warm and friendly. - 4/5; pretty straightforward but the same recruiter extended me the offer and was extremely receptive and helpful. really loved hearing about the flight benefits. Sat down with the four managers (one pricing, three inventory) for 45-60 min each. They asked me a few culture fit questions to make you sell yourself (Where do you see yourself in five years? Why JetBlue?) and some brainteasers and basic algebra questions (How many cups of coffee do you think Starbucks sells in Manhattan per day? If it takes one person x hours to paint a wall and the other person y hours, how quickly can they finish if they work together?). I think the goal was to tease out my thought process and communication skills. They don't really care about you arriving at a right answer -- they just want to hear you talk out your thinking. - 3.5/5; was interesting but kind of felt like they were trying too hard. also every manager had a different approach and I found two in particular to be a bit arrogant. A manager gave me a voucher for lunch at the cafeteria downstairs. I ate alone, which was weird, but I also appreciated the sustenance and much-needed break between interviews. Lunch was also by the pound with options from in-house chefs and pretty tasty! - 4/5; thanks for the free food, JetBlue! Took a skills test with a few situational questions and basic math problems (industry formulas and calculator provided). I met with the last of four managers (met three earlier) and left for the day. Didn't meet any of the analysts, even informally, but they did bring me over to meet the director for a few minutes. He was really nice. - 3.5/5; they allocated 60 minutes for the test. felt like it was excessive and should be shaved down to 45 minutes and keeping the RASM/ASM questions in tact but cutting half the situational short answers (you already asked me some of these in person!) Was told I could expect an offer in 2-4 months - 1/5; not cool. you held me captive for a full-day interview, dangled travel benefits in front of me, but there's no offer in sight?!) thanks for leaving a glimmer of hope, I guess But they called within 3 weeks and extended an offer. Recruiter and manager both called me to personally congratulate me and discuss details about the position. They were really friendly and helpful with the onboarding process. Everyone genuinely seems to love working there. - 4.5/5 moved really fast once they extended the official offer "Compliance testing" (drug and alcohol) conducted after you accept. - 1/5 why? Orientation in Orlando was a great induction to company culture though. And now you get to stay at the Lodge. - 5/5 for the juice

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at JetBlue (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview is lengthy and involved, but the interviewers make you feel at ease. Also it's good to know your history on JetBlue. They will ask you if you know any facts about the company. They are upfront and honest about what working for JetBlue will be like. For example, one interviewer said during their ninety day probation period you can forget about going anywhere till it's over after that you can choose to work any from 15 hours to 80 hours.

    Difficult Interview

    I applied online – interviewed at JetBlue.

    Interview

    Basic tell me about your background, walk me through your resume. Then they proceeded to ask a series of behavioral STAR based questions. The questions came off as really strange questions (questions about being distracted at work, how you manage your time, problem with coworkers). I honestly really did not enjoy this interview. It felt like neither of the interviewers wanted to create a dialogue.

    Customer Service Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New Orleans, LA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at JetBlue (New Orleans, LA).

    Interview

    Jet Blue does Group Interviews. They divide everyone up into 2-3 groups and interview them. We were all asked the same questions and had a turn to answer. Those who held the interview were the HR/Recruiter, The Manager & a Supervisor. I wanted to be in the manager's group because I thought she would ultimately make the decision. I may have been right, because I was chosen for the next round. The downside to these interviews & the whole process is that they drug test everyone, and have lots of people come for the fingerprinting so you have no idea where you stand until they let you know. If they are only hiring at small airports for 1 person this can be a waste of your time.
