    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at SkyWest Airlines (Palm Springs, CA).

    Interview

    On their website, they list open house interviews in cities across the US. I applied on line and brought my resume with me to the sign in table with a huge warm smile and introduced myself.
    I was super confident, I just had two co-workers fired at my current job and I knew I am a great employee. I ended up interviewing with the same woman later and felt super good about the interview process. I felt like she really liked me.
