    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 months. I interviewed at British Airways (Heathrow, England, England)

    Interview

    A positive experience during the interview in a nearby hotel. Background check and three separate 1:1 interviews. NO tattoos allowed. The offer was sent via email and signing a contract was online. However, it took half a year to go thru all process. The employer kept hiding working hours until the last minute (6 months later). Some people angrily walked away once saw it.
