    I interviewed 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.

    IT Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed 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.

    Interview Questions

    Safety Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Cleveland, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Application Details

    I interviewed 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.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at United Airlines in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.
