Employees rate Heathrow 6% lower than the overall average
I have been working at British Airways full-time (More than 5 years)
Great benefits, great people, challenging projects
A bit bureaucratic sometimes
Advice to Management
Make faster decisions
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at British Airways (Heathrow, England (UK)) in June 2018.
Arrived at Waterside (British Airways Head office) at London Heathrow
Sat with other candidates, all awaiting the process to start
Went through to the Recruitment Centre - Had to fill out a form (Ie Any tattoos/piercings/holidays - Then wait in a line to hand over paperwork requested by British Airways.
Sat waiting with other candidates - Then called in a small group to a room to undertake a few tests, Suitcase in a makeshift locker - put hand on suitcase handle ... Then height... Luckily I`m 5ft 10" // 177cm so I`m alright there...next test is to stand next to a mock 777 door, hold a handle with your right hand and crouch down and touch a red cord on the floor...final task is to sit in crew seat, buckle up and adopt cabin crew brace position..then hand over the form regarding tattoos/piercings/holidays to a 2nd interviewer in this room
Then once everyone has completed this... We have a presentation from BA about working for BA, life as cabin crew on mixed fleet, benefits and rewards
After this is either a role play or group task - can vary on the day
Group task is just that - talk to everyone and include everyone - Simples !!
Role play - Yourself and an interviewer - Interviewer plays an angry customer - EASY !!
After this - candidates get a break whilst the interviewers decide who gets a final interview or not - Sadly some people will be kicked out at this point
They will take you to seperate rooms // one group get final interviews // other group gets sent home
If you make it to the final interview - Well done !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
