    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Atlas Air Worldwide (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I sat in front of a panel that interviewed me. They asked multiple questions about past experiences and potential issues that I could see as a detriment to taking a position with the Atlas organization. Oh course this was 20+ year ago now when this airline was worth working for

    Interview

    The hiring process was confusing.
    There were several interviews on the same day. All together I spent 4 hours in the office. He even checked my references after the interview. After that everything stopped and made me wonder what was the outcome.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Atlas Air Worldwide (Purchase, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    interviewed with two managers for the position. Was hired immediately and completed a two week training. The hiring managers and employees are very thorough about what the position entails. They bought us lunch and breakfast, they briefed us on the position, did webex, we did hands on, received a manual and cheat sheets, gave us a work schedule and introduced us to many on the team. We are not left in the dark about anything. It was very informative and interesting.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Atlas Air Worldwide (Houston, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Brief and pleasant phone interview before being invited to the eight hour assessment day. The assessment day started with an introduction of both Atlas Air and the flight attendant staffing company, Flight Services International. There were approximately 50 people at my assessment day, and we were broken into random groups of ten people each. We first were asked to introduced ourselves individually prior to engaging in a group exercise and presenting our findings. After the group project there was a nice catered lunch while we waited to be called for our one on one interviews. While waiting we had to fill out a massive application, including all employment history for ten years, leaving no gaps, and having to copy twice the last two years of employment history. The one on one interview was a breeze, both Atlas Air representatives being very kind and welcoming. I received a call saying I was selected for the position a few days later (Only 22 were selected total). I went in to take the background and drug test on Wednesday and said I would be notified before the weekend if there were any issues with the results. On Thursday/Friday I got two acceptance letters confirming and congratulating me on being one of the few selected for the position, as well as a link to fill out my w2 and other contractual employment forms, and was informed I would receive my travel arrangements for training about 2-3 days before departure. I put in my week notice that I will be vacating my current job and begin to make arrangements for the trip, as well a study a large booklet of study material that needed to be complete prior to leaving for training. Later that weekend, Sunday Mother's day afternoon at 2:30p, I received an unexpected phone call from Atlas saying I would need to be at 8a on Tuesday morning to take another urine. I informed them that I would try to find coverage for my shift on such short notice, but I still had to work that final week per my employment agreement. I could not find coverage until Thursday at 8am, so they ended up giving my position away and now I am left without a job. Aside from leaving me in a very compromising financial situation, the interview process was great.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Atlas Air Worldwide (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    The decision makers want young people (mainly) with little or no experience as flight attendants so they can not compare their working conditions with previous airlines who have a union.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Atlas Air Worldwide (Houston, TX) in August 2014.

    Interview

    You send in your resume, go to Texas on your dime and interview with 30 + others. They make you feel like you already got the position so that you will make the trip almost 80 % of the candidates were from out of town maybe half of them were prior or current FA for other companies. There was a veteran there on the day I was interviewed and she didn't get the position. I am a current FA and didn't get the position. They both made us feel like we were such strong candidates. Seemed like an awesome opportunity guess they just didn't like day two crew so much.
