I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at United Airlines in February 2012.
Interview Details – I applied in late December and later revieved an email asking me to set up a face to face interview in Houston where I was flown down in February.
Interview Question – Why should United hire you. Answer Question
I applied online - interviewed at United Airlines in November 2013.
Interview Details – The process was pretty much as described by most people on this site. There were about 13 people being interviewed that day and they started by showing us a video and then opening up for questions, then bringing us in for a one on one interview. If you passed the initial interview you were asked to go into another room and wait for another recruiter to bring you in for a second interview. The third interview was a group of about 5 people and each asked a question. The initial two interviewers asked questions like, give me an example of how you had conflict with a coworker and how did you resolve it. Another was, give me an example of a decision you made at work that you later regret it and why?
The group interview consisted of more questions around how prepared are you to be on reserve and what does that mean to you.
Interview Question – What are your best three qualities? How do you handle stressful situations Answer Question
I applied online - interviewed at United Airlines in March 2012.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you had to convince someone. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at United Airlines in November 2013.
Interview Details – I applied on line and received an invitation to go to the group interview. I had two rounds of interviews. Did not make it to the third interview (not sure if that is important) since my first interview was with a recruiting manager
Interview Question – Describe how you would handle a conflict with another flight attendant Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at United Airlines in July 2013.
Interview Details – Intervew process went ok. Was given positive space to Chicago for interview through HR. HR was very slow at responding to emails and phone call messages. They did not keep the applicant informed through the process and let them even know that they were being considered for the job.
Required to pay for round trip cab to interview location which was about $35. Was given a basic interview consisting of 3 structured questions. A little bit of a conversation and then was released. The whole interview lasted about 18 minutes. They were not much into chit chatting.
The position was explained more in detail during the interview and was told that they would let me know through HR if I was offered the position. It took HR 3 additional weeks after my interview to get in touch with me and offer me the job.
HR called to offer me the job; she read off the benefits and salary. There was no room for negotiations. She said that is all we have to offer and there is no room to negotiate when I asked if that was the absolute highest they could offer me. Upon signing the job offer, I was told that I would not be elgible for a raise for 4 years because I am in the lower age bracket of the position. She gave me 6 hours to respond, and the signed job offer must reach them by the end of the day or the offer of employment will be redacted.
On the first day, I was put through a management and administrative co-worker orientation - that was great. Was trained a little for the position and then put on the "call center" floor. It was entirely not the position I was hired for and am still currently in this position but try daily to find a way out of it and transfer within the company.
Interview Question – Explain the way you build rapport with others and how because of this rapport you have built you remain in contact with them today. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – None whatsoever. I was told what the salary and the benefits were and then was told I had 6 hours to accept or decline.
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at United Airlines.
Interview Details – I sent in my resume at a college career fair and heard back a month later. First round of interviews was behavioral and went through my resume. The interviewer called me and was friendly and very professional. A week later, I get a phone call from HR at United. I couldn't pick up in time so I called right back. First time didn't go through. Second time I got through and HR answered. I told her who I was. She hung up on me right away. I guess they called me on accident? Still would've been more professional to explain themselves rather than cutting the line. Real classy, United.
Interview Question – Why do you want to work for us? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at United Airlines in November 2013.
Interview Details – Applyed online and 2 days later got an e mail asking me to schedule an interview with them in Houston. By the time I called them there were only 2 available days left to interview. got my interview schedule confirmed and a few days later got my itinerary to go to Houston. Flew in to housston the day before the interview.
The day of the interview, I got to the inflight training center very early, I was the first one there and slowly more people arrived. We went in to a conference room, there were only 11 of us.
I read a lot of the posts here and my interview was nothing like what people wrote here. We started with a presentation about the company and after that were called for 1on1 interviews. About 9 of us past this interview ans then they called us for another interview. After this interview there were only 6 of us left. I waited about an hour and a half between the second and third interview. They only asked me two Qs in the third interview and then told me they don't have any one to interview me in my language and I should go back to the airport and see if I can get on an earlier flight.
Dress nicely for this interview, but really, you dont have to over do it. They are really checking you and your porsenalty. Ask Qs but don't over do it and let other people ask.
Smile, be friendly to EVERYONE !
You really have to want this job to get it, so if you don't, don't bother of going here. Don't get nervous.
Have fun! It was a great expriance
