    Interview

    The process was fairly easy. Interviewers were always watching us. There was a group session, where we worked together as a group and were asked to tell something about another individual from the group.

    Flight Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Continental Airlines (Houston, TX) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Applied to the company website. Contacted almost a month and a half later.
    Offered choices of dates to fly to Houston to personally interview.
    No phone questions.

    Arrived at group interview in the am with about 70 candidates.
    As I approached the interviewer, she looked straight at me and said
    Flatly, nothing special...

    I was floored and astounded how absolutely rude she was.
    Interviewed with a gentlemen who was also short and very impersonable.

    Asked to come.back for second face.to face interview. Using the star method,
    Answered questions well, I thought. Same astoundingly rude lady interviewed me.

    She asked.me if I thought I was a good fit for the company and I thought.
    Not really, I'm not an ***hole.

    Do not work here, these people think their primadonnas.
    They forgot how to treat people.

    Project Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Continental Airlines (Houston, TX) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Was contacted by human resources who administered a 30 min phone interview. Following day was contacted for a face to face. Two weeks later contacted for a second/final interview. Hiring Manager was very polite. Process time was average for a hiring process. Hiring Manager asked general, "what makes you the best fit for this position, how do you handle stress, etc...." They waited for compensation results which I was told is tailored to individual's experience, education and ability. For an airline, compensation is going to be relatively low compared to other industries. End result I was not offered position, likely because of my experience, Master's degree and certification, probably couldn't justify my hiring over what revenue would be driven by the position. I knew this before I applied, had a friend working there who quit to make 75% of what average PMs make so I was naturally assume they pay less than that. Just be yourself.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Continental Airlines (Houston, TX) in March 2010.

    Interview

    for the first 20 minutes they are talking about the company and yourself just a little bit. Final 40 minutes is based on a booklet that they have and they are asking bunch of "Zingers". I was not prepared and I was quite sure that I could not get the job.

    Airport Sales Agent Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Continental Airlines (Houston, TX) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Overall very easy interview and was approved for transfer. Bad part is, there are no jobs available for transfer. Basic questions, helps to just read a basic interview book so you don't panic with questions you haven't thought of. Most interview books will have most of the questions they'll be asking. If your here already it's 1:1. When I started here over 10 years ago, it was a group interview, much like inflight. Then they weed you out and then it goes to 1:1. When I first started at CAL it took awhile for the hiring. Sent in my resume and play the waiting game.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Continental Airlines.

    Interview

    I received an invitation to interview in Houston several months after filling out their online application. It began with a brief video and orientation. Afterwards, we were called one by one for our interviews. Everyone was friendly and did their best to make us feel comfortable. Unfortunately I didn't receive an offer, but it was a good experience just the same.
