Both your interviews are on the same day? Which is closer for you? Are they at the same time?

momtozoey,

I have a conditional job offer and they took my fingerprints today. I was very nervous but once I sat down with the recruiter I felt better. They were very nice. So now I will wait for the next process.
Thanks for being there for me with all my questions!!!

kam kam, congrats!!! How was your interview? Was it one on one or a group interview? What type of questions did they ask? Ohare is way closer than MDW. Wow they took your finger prints the same day? That's great!!! Seems like u got the job in the bag. I'm so happy for u. Yeah my interview is on the same day. I want to decline the interview with southwest because the recruiter told me that the hours will be nights, weekends, and holidays plus I'm still deflated from the phone call they gave monday with the bad news. It's 50 miles to MDW one way so that's 100 miles a day and maybe 6-7 days a week. the bad part is southwest called monday and i asked for a morning interview and american called tuesday and told me a time. your thoughts............

Cdagod...that is how american works they give you the time. They will not change it. If you try you will most likely miss out. I can tell you I would not not drive to mdw everyday that is nuts.

as far the weekends and that with the airlines you have to work that no matter what...even the office people get stuck with it.
It is just part of it.

Kam Kam that is great...it will be a week or so until you hear something. Normally a email is sent or a phone call to set up medical and photos after that. It photo thing takes for ever and the people there are not nice at all. They work for the city so just be ready. Once you get that done it will be a week or so until you hear anything about a start date. I know they have a class starting in 4 weeks. I can tell you that is the same class I am in now. It is long and lots of hitting the books but the teacher is great. Good luck to both of you. My last class day is Friday so I am going to be hitting the books big time until then.

momtozoey, as far as the interview goes, is a suit ok to wear? I don't wanna be overdressed. i went to an interview with a southwest and the recruiters looked at me like i was overdressed. also, for parking, would i have to pay for parking like anyone else who's coming to the airport? i have to be there at 8:45 so I'm tryin to see if I will have to look for parking. Your thoughts...... oh yeah, where is training? is it in chicago or dallas? one last question, do they get paid every week?

Hi cdagod,

Thanks! the interview was one on one. It lasted about 15min. There were about 40 people there, then they call you one by one. Very basic questions, tell me about yourself, what would you do type of question, your passion. Then they told me we would like to offer you a conditional job so you will have your finger prints taken today. I did wear a black suit. Most people were dressed up, very few not dressed up. Is your interview at the Ohare? I did have to pay for parking but my interview was held at the convention center. Sounds like O'hare is much closer for you and would be ideal for you. We were told the hours will be early morning, late evenings, wknd and holidays. Good luck and keep us posted.

momtozoey,

Thanks for your information, it has helped so much with the process. So you have trained for 4 weeks, are you going to Dallas at all? Good luck and thanks again. Where will be at in the airport? Ticket counter? We will be at the gate area.

What's up pilotboy? Yep, went and got fingerprinted yesterday at Ohare. I have no idea what's the next step since everything is done by e-mail and then a phone call. I have no clue what my hours will be, how much they paying, or the benefits. Do you have a clue on the benefits package? Also, do they pay weekly?

So u got finger printed about a week ago and nothing yet? Hmmmmmmmmm, do u have any idea what's the next step after finger printing? Do they hold all training at Dallas or is it where u work? They left me with so many questions. What job did u apply for? I applied for the staff assistant position but I think I was chosen for the production control coordinator position. Keep me updated n I'll do the same

Ok I will try to answer some of your questions...since I am new I don't have all the answers...I can tell you that you get paid every 2 weeks. Once you have your finger prints you will hear something in a few days to a week. Once you have that done then it is medical and on to the city badage...be nice to those people otherwise you might be waiting for awhile for your badage. I hear eagle is having training class start on May 11th. I know our trainer is coming back to chicago so I would think you would have training right here. I can tell you she was great and very nice. Eagle does gates...with aa you will most likely be at ato...I can tell you everyone is very nice and willing to help. The two companys do do some things different. I have seen that already. Good luck to all.

yeahh i got fingerprinted. at the interview the interviewer said that training will be held at the airport(la guardia) or if training is not available there then i will get sent down to DCA as i was told. The interviewer also told me that the pay is weekly. I applied for fleet service clerk with American Eagle. oh and also after i got my fingerprints done the lady said that the next step would be the medical.

So I took the medical today. Just like momtozoey said, it was a hearing and vision test and also a urine test. It also involved numerous questions about your medical history. Does anyone know why's the next step after medical? Please let me know

Yes the credit check is part of your background check. My credit is "ok" and I passed my background check but my credit is young so Idk. But you should be fine. I don't know if the credit check is such a big part of the background check

Thanks for the info. I wasn't sure if they did them for all employees or not. I know a lot of airlines do a credit check for employees who handle money but I wasn't sure if they did them for other positions like mechanic, administative assistant, etc, basically for employees that wouldn't handle money or transactions.

I applied for a position that closed on 05/02/2011 and it is now 05/10/2011. Does anyone know how long it would take them to get back to you? It was a corperate job so I doubt they would have had thousands of applications like they would for a job like Flight Attendant. Someone had said expect about 2 weeks. Does anyone have any insight or experience they could share? Thanks.

Isn't AA going bankrupt or something? Thought I read something about that, that's why I don't even have the slightest thought of working for them..
