    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at United Airlines (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    The process was very straightforward and simple. I submitted my application for the position of flight attendant on October 26th, 2017. On October 27th, I received an email from United stating that there is a possibility that I may receive an invitation for a video interview. On October 30th, I received an invitation from HireVue to complete a video interview. On October 31st, I submitted my video interview. Today, November 2nd, I received an invitation to schedule my group interview in Houston Texas for November 9th, 2017!! Is anyone else participating in the November 9th group interview??? If so- lets chat! I am flying in the day before (the 8th). Maybe we can meet up and become quick friends!?

    Two step interview process, the first containing an analytical assessment with math questions and brain teasers. The second round interviews was a combination of a case study with personal questions along with a casual conversation afterwords. Process was smooth and very friendly.

    Flight Attendant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at United Airlines (Salt Lake City, UT) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I Applied and submitted my application for the FA position on 9/15. On 9/26 i received an email saying my application had been sent to inflight recruiting and i may be selected for a video interview. The next day 9/27 i received an email stating i have been selected for a video interview. You have five days from the date you receive the email to complete the video interview. I recorded my interview on 10/02 and used the time beforehand to research the company and study for the questions i might be asked, All questions posted on here are the correct questions, and I highly suggest writing down your answers and studying the questions you possibly can. Remember to answer the questions in the STAR format (Situation, Task, Action, Result) and have multiple examples and situations prepared. DRESS EXACTLY like a Flight Attendant. This is the first form of physical contact the recruiters will have with you - I slicked my hair back, and wore a white button up, Black suit coat, and a tie. Utilize the practice questions to get a feel of the flow of the interview - it will help you immensely. Look into the camera on your phone/tablet/laptop etc. This gives the recruiters the impression you are giving eye contact! They are looking for content, not the perfect interview so just be yourself, be genuine in your answers, relax, and smile! I feel I did well personally, but i wont find out until up to 8 weeks, however it seems they are getting back to candidates faster than the time said. I am hoping for a face to face invite and by the grace of god may i get it!

    I only say no because i have yet to hear back!
    Good Luck everyone! :)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at United Airlines.

    Interview

    I applied online. A couple weeks later, I got invitation mail for video interview. You have to take that video interview in 5 days. The video interview was difficult because you are not talking with real person but just recording yourself.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at United Airlines (Las Vegas, NV) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I received a link invite for a video interview. The time frame to complete is limited (5 days) so you want to make sure you check your spam accounts so that you wont miss it. They'll send a heads up email first. Anywho you log onto the link and begin the interview, mine was 5 questions. I'd suggest the practice first just so you can get a good feel for it and make sure your positioning is ok as well. Now that it's complete it's a waiting game "/

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at United Airlines.

    Interview

    The process has been pleasant and has moved very quickly. The moment you apply online start studying the questions on here for both the video interview and face to face! I applied online on November 5th, received my invitation for the video interview on November 7th, did the video interview on November 10th, and received my F2F invitation on November 13th. For the video interview, all of the questions I was asked were ones I'd studied from this site and the practice questions before the video interview were also questions asked during the interview itself so do them. Practice answering questions and do some reflecting on why it is that you want this position.

    I applied online. I interviewed at United Airlines.

    Interview

    It only took 2 days to get the video interview after posting my resume, but I'm wondering how long it will take to hear back about the next step. Waiting to hear back. I highly suggest studying the companies goals and what they stand for and finding how you relate yourself to it.
