For me, it started as a Group, 1to1, 2to1 and if they like you I guess they let you know to stay for the fingerprints. I was not selected. So, I don’t know further details.

Good process. First asked questions based on resume. Then behavioural questions. After that few puzzles were asked and they were constantly asking about my thought process regarding the question. At last, a case study was asked

I applied online. I interviewed at United Airlines (Houston, TX) in May 2022

Interview

Applied online in January, scheduled for in-person interview in May. The online application included a personality questionnaire. It was straight forward and not especially complicated. So far, the process appears to be well organized, most likely because they process a high number of applicants.

The process took 3 months. I interviewed at United Airlines (Houston, TX)

Interview

The interview took less than the 4 hours they said it would take. It was very impersonal and sterile. They also made us make goodie bags for sick children on behalf of United signing our own names. I felt this was really inappropriate and unethical, given we are not employees. It feels like a punch to the stomach for extra insult, since I didn’t get the job. They’re great on paper, but in person, I felt like a number. I was very disappointed.

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at United Airlines (Las Vegas, NV) in Oct 2021

Interview

I applied online and had an employee referral in mid-August. I was emailed 2 weeks ago and asked to schedule my video interview, and I just had it this morning! This was not a recording your answers type of interview, like I've seen others mention on here. I was interviewed by a real person who actually works for the company. I was told that I should receive an email within 5 to 7 business days (or maybe longer) with their decision. Make sure you have questions in mind to ask your interviewer! It makes things a lot more relaxed if you're not the only one answering questions on the fly lol. Fingers crossed!

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about a time someone you didn't know asked you to help them. Tell me about a time a customer was upset and blamed you for something that wasn't your fault. Tell me about a time you worked with a team you did not know. Tell me about a time when you had to deal with a rude customer, who you later had to help. Is there anything you would have done differently?
