    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at British Airways (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The first stage consists of a number of online tests, which become more challenging through the process. These consist of numeracy, 2 situational and verbal reasoning. The second stage is a first round assessment centre. This involves several group exercises, tests and interviews. The final stage is an interview with 2 senior managers from the programme area.
