    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at United Airlines (South San Francisco, CA (US)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    It's a three step process. First you take a written 60 questions test. Which covers everything you learned through A&P school. You can only miss twelve or so. Can't remember. If you pass the written, you go ahead and take a practical. The practical covers torquing bolts, safetying hardware, installing rivets and measuring some stuff. If you're successful, you finally get an interview.
