    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Continental Airlines (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    3 stage interview process, progressing from line mechanic, lead mechanic and supervisor, and finally management. Went over basic mechanic responsibilities and experience, general discussion on problem solving techniques with challenge to relate to real world experiences, again based on actual past issues with emphasis on how they were overcome! Review training and line experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Again, problem solving techniques, emphasis on employee to employee working relationships.   2 Answers

    Negotiation

    No real negotiations as this was a union contract that required adherence to the contract terms.
