    I worked at British Airways full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fun place to work in, enjoyed my 27 years with them. I was well looked after and joined at the right time.

    Cons

    Do not value staff loyalty and do not invest in products as much as in the 80's and 90's. No long term prospects for new joiners.

    Advice to Management

    With too much cost cutting, reputation will suffer. Remember the people is what make the company and cheap labour and cost cutting measures will compromise the business.

    Commercial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Heathrow, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at British Airways (Heathrow, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Online application, telephone interview, online tests, in-person assessment (case study and then a strengths interview). Easy application process up until in-person assessment and the interviewers were friendly.

    However, the lady I met at the careers reception desk at Waterside was very rude and despite giving her accepted paperwork for ID verification etc. she said she could not accept it. Additionally no expenses are paid which is disappointing, even more so when they don't even bother to give feedback - given I took a whole day out to attend it does not take long for a quick email or follow-up call.

    The case study element of the interview was challenging, mostly due to it taking a very different format to the majority of consultancies, professional services firms or even investment banks. A little note to advise candidates to brush up on Excel skills prior to the interview would have been nice, at least for candidates who tend to use other (and more complex) programmes to analyse data. It was a curveball that then set the tone for the rest of the process.
