Employee Service Center Representative Interview

Employee Service Center Representative

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at United Airlines.

Interview Details – The interview was all behavioral and needs to be answered in the STAR format. After I applied I received an email from the recruiter within a week letting me know I was selected for an in person interview and what was the salary range they offer for the position. I replied stating I was interested and scheduled my interview for a few days later. At the interview they did not ask me any questions about myself but went direct to explaining about the position and I was asked 5 scenario questions. I was given a written test as well.

Interview Question – All questions were pretty easy and scenarios you may have already experienced before. I did not get the job which was very sad but it was because they hired internally. A friend of mine who used to work for the company told me that she knew the person they hired and it was an internal candidate.   View Answers (2)

Senior Inventory Planner Interview

Senior Inventory Planner
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at United Airlines in May 2010.

Interview Details – Horrible - Scripted 100%, and no deviation from the STAR process. Hiring Manager was foreigner, who was very difficult to understand, and every question had to be repeated 3-4 times in order to decipher what was being asked into English.

Interview Question – STAR process is stupid and ridiculous, No chance to sell your skills and experience. Just answer the question in the Situation-Task-Action-Result format. And nothing more. Very structured, and interviewers were more concerned about getting back to their jobs than spending any quality time in interview.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Sr. Managers struck me as idiots who had no idea of airline inventory planning, or even the basics of how to accomplish it.

Flight Attendant Interview

Flight Attendant
Houston, TX

I applied online - interviewed at United Airlines in November 2012.

Interview Details – I applied online I don't remember the date but I got an email for an invitation to interview with them a couple months later. I flew over to Houston Texas and you rest for the day you arrive then interview the next day. You arrive by shuttle and when you walk into the doors a recruiter has everyone line up on the side of the wall before they enter, then you enter when everyone (other attendants). They sit you down in a room and they was about 30 other applicants. They explain about United Airlines and you get to ask questions about the company or the job. Then the recruiters call you in. Maybe 5 recruiters but each to one applicant. You walk into another room and interview with them. It was really easy. The recruiter ask name a time you had a difficulty with a Co worker, why do you want to be a flight attendant and which job do you think helped you with your customer service. There were about 5 but those are the ones I remember. Then if they like you they slip you a note to stay, if not they tell you they'll send you an email. They tell you that they read forums and don't listen to people about getting an email and not getting the job and that they're doing things differently. NOT TRUE. I kept contact with all the girls on the bus going back and they all didn't get the job. UNITED is really nice though so don't give up !
