    I applied on 10/15 submitting my application. Prompted an hour later to take assessment. Invited to do VI (Video Interview) on 11/7. The waiting game is the hard part. Been trying to do my research before the VI. I'll post after it's done and if I hear back.

    Interview

    The interview itself was pretty relaxed you are seated with a great group of people and after a while you start to feel like you are not being watched anymore, personally what I found most stressful was the waiting periods in between the application the video interview and the f2f

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Airlines (Dallas, TX) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed on November 2, 2016. When you get in the meeting room, you check in, choose a table with other applicants and fill out a survey. Then you give them your passport date and you get a name tag. After that, you do the traditional "get to know me". Then, the recruiters break everyone off in groups of 8 or 9 and take you in a room with 2 recruiters and you get asked 3 questions and they look to see who is going to answer them first. Later, we went back to the meeting room and learned more about the job and then played the waiting game. They called on you based off of if you were a local or not. I was one of the last to be called because I live in Dallas. The recruiter who interviewed me for my F2F was super nice and then he made me answer about 4 questions while going over my resume. The last step was to do a reach test, fingerprints, strap yourself into a harness and do background papers. The recruiting team told us that we would all find out in 2 weeks at the latest. I left the interview feeling happy and confident! It was the best experience and the recruitment team made it feel so welcoming and relaxed! I hope that this helps. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have questions!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Airlines.

    Interview

    I submitted my application online and heard back in two weeks. I was invited to do a video interview. I only made it through the first interview, which is an automated video interview. It asks you a question, gives you 60 seconds, and then records your response. It really freaked me out so I didn't do well. They mostly ask customer service related questions. I think if I prepared more by studying my questions and answers and practicing, I would have done much better. There are 5-6 questions.

    Interview Questions

    • They are mainly customer service questions. Stuff like, how did you handle a difficult decision. Describe a time you had to work as a team to accomplish a task. Sorry, I was so freaked out the whole time I don't remember the exact questions.   1 Answer
    • Would you be able to follow our dress code policy (natural hair, no visible tattoos)?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at American Airlines in September 2016.

    Interview

    Apply online a fill out a very very long question section. They are personality questions. You will then receive a video interview request where you answer 5 to 6 questions. It is required and they give you time from reading the question to recording your answer to think of a response. The questions where exactly like the ones I found on glassdoor before so do your research and you will be fine.
