    Average Interview

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


    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.

We’re celebrating winning a hat trick at the UK’s leading apprenticeship awards. Our apprentices voted us one of the top employers in the country – and two of our current students won individual awards for their outstanding achievements. At last night’s Rate My Apprenticeship Awards ceremony in London, Heathrow Operations Agent Shannon Mitchell won the Outstanding Intermediate Apprentice (Level 2) award. And T3 Lead Customer Service Representative Abigail Roberts scooped the Outstanding Advanced Apprentice (Level 3) gong. This is the first year we have been involved in the awards, and we also triumphed in the Employer Awards category. Based entirely on our students’ ratings of their experiences with us, we won a place in the top 100, entering the table at number 58. The Employer Awards recognise and reward excellence amongst employers who offer apprenticeships and school leaver opportunities across the UK.
