It took about two days to get through but hey if you really want this job very bad, you'll do what you gotta do !! You don't have to have your passport when you go to the group interview but You MUST have your passport before entering training. Overall a wonderful experience !! Good Luck to all of you!!

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at United Airlines (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Used to work for this company before the extreme cost cutting measures. Interview was fairly basic and centered around sales knowledge. This was "back in the day" so much may have changed. Be prepared to discuss sales knowledge and negotiating skills in detail. Prepare in advance to figure out how/why a corporation would want to preferentially fly on United and be prepared to work that into a simulated sales pitch.

    Interview Questions

    • "Sell me this pen". The VP handed me his pen and asked me to sell it to him.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    It was United. There was no negotiation.

    Interview

    Applied and didn't get interviewed till 2 months later. Met 2 hiring managers for the interview, I dressed in a business suit. Asked me to talk about myself and go through my resume and work experience. After they would talk about a work ethic and ask a question for me to show that particular work ethic, i.e. talk about modesty and then asked to give an example in my experience about the most humble moment I have had. They were very casual but serious.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at United Airlines (Chicago, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called for an in person interview 2 weeks later. the interviews were with a director and with 2 senior managers, one that I would be replacing. the 2nd sr manager interviewing me was inappropriately dressed - faded torn jeans and a shirt with a plunging neckline. the other sr manager was very professional, appropriately dressed and asked most of the questions. I was not hired, according to the recruiter who called me 3 days later, because I was "not a good fit" with the team. I think the plunging neckline woman didn't want another woman on the team.
