    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at British Airways (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online on March 20. You have to do 30 questions of English/Mathematic test in 8 minutes. The company said there is no one can finish all on time, just try your best. Also, you have to do the personality test, there will be ideal answer and real answer. I then receive a call from BA a few days later and ask me to come to their office the following Monday for another computer test. The test is similar to what I did online, but it is 50 questions in 12 minutes. After you pass, they will schedule you a 2-to-1 interview.
    Some questions in 2-to-1 interview:
    1) tell me a time when you handle angry passenger.
    2) if the passenger is having a oversize carry on baggage, how will you tell the passenger to check that in?
    3) is there anything you would like to change in your working environment?
    4) how do you work with difficult coworker?
    5) what if your supervisor keep asking you to perform different duty?
    6) what will you do when a customer ask you to do something when you are inconvenience?
