    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at United Airlines (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applying for Chicago 2018 position.

    I was referred by a current employee. Filled out my initial application near the end of July. I received an invitation to complete the video interview via HireVue 8/16. I was given 5 consecutive days to complete it. I finished it 8/19 and received an email saying I would hear back in up to 6 weeks.

    Fingers crossed!

    Anyone else applying for this position?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at United Airlines (Chicago, IL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online on August 30th and got an email saying they would like me to do the video interview on September 18th. After reading all the reviews on Glassdoor, I finally did my interview on the 4th day - all of the questions people have mentioned here are in the interview. They ask you 5 questions, 30 seconds to prepare for each question, then 3 minutes to answer. It was plenty of time. So the interview itself does not take too long. USE THE PRACTICE INTERVIEW. I thought I would be fine talking to a camera - it totally threw me. After about 5 practices, I felt ready to start..."ready" haha. It felt awkward, but I got through it. Stay calm and smile! The email said I would get a response in 8 weeks, but everything I have read on Glassdoor sounds like they respond faster than that. We'll see! Fingers crossed. Sidenote - I had to pick if I received an offer or not in order to submit this review, I picked no :)

    I did the video interview back in August. Still have not heard back, I heard a rumor they paused hiring due to the huricanes. I am hoping that they will continue on in the process and start face to face interviews soon.

    Candidates are allowed unlimited practice sessions on HireVue. This process gives the candidate an opportunity to adjust lighting, and get a visual of what he or she looks and sounds like before doing the actual interview. I strongly suggest reviewing and answering questions from Glassdoor before beginning. This will more than prepare the candidate for the interview. Checkout YouTube as well for tips.

    I applied online. I interviewed at United Airlines (Chicago, IL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied Sept. 5 and got an invitation Sept. 8. There's 6 Interview Questions on Hire Vue. It actually gives you a couple minutes for practicing. I thought that the questions would be easy but I did hesitate on a couple questions so I'm not sure if they will invite me for a face to face interview. I'm still waiting for a response.

    Here's my timeline: Applied-07.19
    VI email-08.14
    VI completed-08.18
    ....now waiting on word for a f2f interview. To be updated... FYI for the video interview, you are able to take practice questions (there's 2) as many times as you want to prepare. It is recorded so you can play it back and see yourself, but it does not get sent to United. I did it for about an hour lol just to get myself in the groove of doing a video interview and letting go of the nerves! Good luck future United FA!!:)

    I applied online. I interviewed at United Airlines (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied 7/25 and received VI invite 8/16. The vi process was very simple and everything is on Glassdoor. I am awaiting the F2F invite hopefully. Just relax and be yourself and you will do fine. They aren't looking for the interview to be perfect, they are mainly concerned about the content of your answers.
