    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at British Airways (New York, NY) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Assessment on a computer first, kind of like what you did at home prior to getting to this stage. Had to answer the questions in 12 mins. They told you after, that it's ok if you did not finish the questions (I didn't). I waited a bit, I assume for them to check the results to see if you passed. Throughout the process, all whom I was in contact with, (British Airways Employers + Employees) were very professional. After this, two people introduced themselves to me, then walked me into a room for my interview. Throughout the interview process, they were very professional and not too serious. I felt very much at ease.

Company Updates

  • We’re celebrating winning a hat trick at the UK’s leading apprenticeship awards. Our apprentices voted us one of the top employers in the country – and two of our current students won individual awards for their outstanding achievements. At last night’s Rate My Apprenticeship Awards ceremony in London, Heathrow Operations Agent Shannon Mitchell won the Outstanding Intermediate Apprentice (Level 2) award. And T3 Lead Customer Service Representative Abigail Roberts scooped the Outstanding Advanced Apprentice (Level 3) gong. This is the first year we have been involved in the awards, and we also triumphed in the Employer Awards category. Based entirely on our students’ ratings of their experiences with us, we won a place in the top 100, entering the table at number 58. The Employer Awards recognise and reward excellence amongst employers who offer apprenticeships and school leaver opportunities across the UK.
