Airport Operations Zone Control - Supervisor Interview

Airport Operations Zone Control - Supervisor
San Francisco, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 days - interviewed at United Airlines in May 2013.

Interview Details – I was contacted to set up an interview, they flew me to San Francisco to interview three days later. The three interviewers were energetic and welcoming. They answered most of my questions, the interview should have lasted around 45 minutes, mine lasted about an hour and a half because we just kept talking, it was great. I was told that they would be making their decision very quickly and I would hear either way.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you had to make a difficult decision, What was the outcome of your choices, and What did you learn from it?   View Answer
