Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Alaska Airlines.

Interview

I submitted my resume March 1st 2017. Throughout the span of almost 4 months, I kept receiving emails from my recruiter that they are still reviewing resumes and I would be notified on the next step. June 28th I receive an email invitation for a video interview and I submitted it June 29th. This is a pretty long process so far, I almost forgot that I applied to Alaska in the first place!

The video interview process was smooth! I did A TON of research and it helped me out tremendously. I dressed up and even rearranged my room to make it appropriate for the interview. It took me about 3 hours of prep and then 1 hour to do the interview questions.

I've yet to hear back so I'll update this as it comes.

    I've only completed the video interview but found it to be user friendly with basic questions that are listed here on Glassdoor. Be sure if you're using a MAC PC to open the interview up using google chrome, it won't work on Safari browser.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Alaska Airlines (Seattle, WA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted my application on 7/6/2017. On 8/4/2017 I received the invitation to do the Online Interview. I submitted my video on 8/7 after researching this site for the interview questions. It was pretty straight forward if you've done the Online interviews before. You have 30 seconds to get your thoughts together, then up to 2 minutes to record your response. Dress professionally and make sure the lighting is good. I think it also helps to look directly at the camera instead of yourself. The very next day I received a phone call inviting me to Seattle for the Face to Face interview, which was 8/22. It was a long day! I got there at 7:15, sign in began at 7:30. There were about 60 candidates there. The first presentation began at 8:00, the recruiters all introduced themselves and we watched a small video. Immediately after that they began the one on one or two on one interviews. I was up first at 8:30. It was really easy and conversational. We went through my resume and then they asked some customer service questions. I felt really comfortable with the recruiter. My recommendation is to be yourself and talk honestly. I had a long break until my group interview. Make sure to mingle and talk to EVERYONE.. ask the FA's questions...STAY OFF OF YOUR PHONE. They want to see how you interact with people. After lunch I had my group interview. They took 14 of us in a room and we had to introduce the person sitting next to us. After that we picked a question from a stack and had to answer it. My suggestion is volunteer to go first and be prepared for the follow up questions. Remember customer service is their highest priority...so keep that in mind when you're answering questions. After that they started calling names out.... After about 20 names were called, they called mine. And they offered me a position! Was whisked away to do the drug test and paperwork. Training starts in January. So excited.

    Interview

    applied online, then asked to submit video interview, then full day group & 2x1 interview
    Felt HR person was condescending, definitely did not put me at ease.
    Was very excited about Alaska Airlines, but the interaction/attitude of one representative in particular changed my feelings toward the company. I do not want for company that talks about respect, but ultimately treats people like they are lucky to be even considered for such an elite job. please!!

    I applied online. I interviewed at Alaska Airlines.

    Interview

    My entire interview process from application to training took ten months. I uploaded a cover letter with my resume. The video interview was straightforward and I took the time to look up the values of Alaska Airlines so that I could use that info for the VI. Face to face interview was amazing. Many employees come in from across the company to help with interviews. The group interview and one on one were both an opportunity to shine and show the recruiters why you are Alaska, also a time to show how you work with others.
