Do you work at American Airlines? How did you find the job? How did you get that first interview?

Any advice for someone trying to get in?

Every job that I have applied for with American Airlines I've received a rejected notice. I have 20 years in the travel business as a travel agent both leisure and corprate travel, since sept 11 nad the economy the travel industry has been hit hard and now with the internet people are now making their travel arrangements with the internet so travel jobs are being more deleted.

I'm not sure how it works on the AA side of the company but i know on the AE side they do everything in E-mails or over the phone. I know this for sure about the Flight Attendants. I'm not sure about other positions.

I just had my f2f and they did my prints on the same day...I think I have the job but I am wondering how long it took for you to hear back after the prints were done?? I am also wondering how long it took to get a start date. Since when I went no one really knew when we would start.

Any info you can share would be great. I have a really good feeling since they took the prints right away and said I should hear back about medical and that part next. Then I would get my letter.

Jet thanks...I am hoping this works out...I have a trip coming up too that I have to tell them about once I get an offer. I am really wondering when I should look for that.

I am sure they will work with us on our trip plans since we booked ti last year and it is paid in full. We leave in 64 days. And I am hoping that we start after that. But I am not sure if it will happen. Since I will be gone too for like 10 days.
