    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at United Airlines in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for the position of Flight Attendant (German Speaking) and received a phone call within the week. I was a little caught off guard by the phone interview when they called. It lasted about 45 minutes and they asked me to elaborate on my work experience. About a week after the phone interview, I received an email notification that I had not advanced to the next round.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed 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.

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed 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 through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at United Airlines in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    There was no interview. I was hand-picked for this role. I believe there were other competitive potential candidates for this position but as usual, I got assisted into this role. I didn't merit it. I had years of experience with Continental as a Field Specialists-Compliance but not a Safety background.

    Interview Questions
    • No formal interview took place. It was all casual and informal discussions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I wasn't given what I negotiated. It was more or less, take it or leave it.
