    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at United Airlines in June 2017.

    Interview

    Be sure to use the filter and read every single share here because they are very accurate! The process moved very fast and the interview question are exactly the same as people shared here. There are 6 questions and 3 of them are from the practice session, remember to use the practice session as much as you need before the real interview because that is really helpful to ease your nerve. I submitted my application online on June 7, and got an email said I may receive an email with an invitation to complete an online video interview on June 8, I received an video interview email on June 13, and I completed my interview on the 5th day. And now waiting for my f2f interview, hope I am selected!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at United Airlines.

    Interview

    Went through online questionnaire then was asked to fly to Newark for in person interview. I had people who were in unprofessional attire wearing tattoos which is an airline policy you can't have and they made it further than I did. Horrible experience so glad I didn't get the job

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at United Airlines (El Cajon, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Just got done doing a one way Video Interview (VI). On 06/12 I sent an application in and two days later I got invited through email to do a VI. They give you 5 days from the day you get the email to complete this. So I used three of my days to study everything I could find about this position and about the company. Glassdoor is a must if you want to do well. :-)

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at United Airlines in June 2017.

    Interview

    Very easy and straight forward. Applied online June 4th, got the request for the video interview within a five-day window. I did the video interview on June 14th. The questions posted here on Glassdoor were really helpful. I practiced and made notecards. I thought it went well but heard back July 3, 2017, that I am not moving forward and consider reapplying in six moths. I am currently applying for another airline. All the flight attendant video blogs say apply and apply and apply. Good luck everyone!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at United Airlines (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Super easy. Most questions are structured and behavioral. When responding think of STAR. They also ask you about yourself and some technical questions to understand your skill set. They go over what the dept does, what you would be doing if hired and who you work with.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Interview went great. First a phone, then set a date for group interview which was actually a one on one with a recruiter. If you passed that,they walked you out,said congratulations for the premployment offer then sent you to a different room to talk to a recruiter who gave you a packet and set up dates with for all medical tests and fingerprinting to get done. The thing with medical was hearing,vision,drug and physical test. This was where the issue was with me. After everything was completed I get a call 3 days later saying I failed the physical test even though I passed everything else. This mind you is done by a third party health company and United does not get the results why. Just a pass/fail. Even the guy doing the test said I should get the job and most likely passed. I was stunned because one this was an easy test,two I did the same job for a different airline for four years prior with zero issues. A ramp employee should be tested on if they can lift the required pounds and not a muscle resistance or PCE chair test,see and hear. I firmly believe it's because of my size and weight that I was not hired. This company is fishy. I can't believe they allow a third party to tell them one is not capable of handling a job they physically have done for four years prior and never have I ever failed a physical test for a company. Way to destroy a person's dream company to work for. I'll keep trying mind you but the process as far as testing goes needs to change. So if you don't pass any of the premployment tests your offer right away gets rescinded even though you're capable of doing the job. Can't even go to your own physician to say hey the person is capable.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at United Airlines (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Behavorial based interview involving questions like "Tell me about a time when...". Some of the questions were pretty specific and not like the typical behavioral questions you would expect.

    I did not have to go through a phone interview or 2nd in-person interview. Just one in-person interview and an offer was made.
