    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at British Airways.

    Interview Details

    This was very odd - I had two telephone interviews - I suppose this was a way of assessing my skills which I would use on the job. Only after "passing" those interviews, I was invited to an all-day workshop type meeting with multiple applicants. During the course of the day, applicants would be asked to go individually into another room and some did not return - I later found that they were rejected and left via another exit. The good thing is most of the interviewing was done by people actually doing the job - with Human Resources involved only at the last stage.
