    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at United Airlines.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my school website and their website. There were two interviews, one with HR, then one with an actual engineer in the department. Overall, the interviewers were extremely nice. The first interview was a basic overview of your resume and a couple of easy/ most common interview questions. One of the most important things is to make sure you research the company and any new events. The second interview is a little more behavioral so make sure you have several projects to speak about, but once again research the most common behavioral questions and you should be fine.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at United Airlines.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted within 2 weeks by a HR representative. From there, it took a bit of coordination to arrange the panel interview. I met for over 1 1/2 hours with 4 individuals, including the department director, and I never heard a word again. After that extensive of an interview, I would have thought I'd at least receive a form letter.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at United Airlines in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a phone call a couple weeks later informing me that I got a phone interview. The phone interview was with someone from HR and was all behavioral and fairly easy. About a week late I got a call saying that I got a second, on site interview in Houston. This interview was with three engineers. They asked some questions that were technical in nature, but mostly just about things on my resume and stuff involving team dynamics.
