    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Virgin Atlantic Airways.

    Interview

    Interviews mainly focussed on behavioural questions: "tell me about a time...". Main interview was about 3hrs total, including a ~20minute test exercise and also a ~45min exercise where the candidate is given some data and asked to answer some questions in presentation format, which then has to be presented to the interviewers before the main questioning.
