JetBlue HireVue interview – what to expect
JetBlue’s HireVue interview is sent out relatively early in the application process, however, we’ve seen some cases where the HireVue invitations have taken over a month to hit an applicant’s inbox. So don’t stress out if you submit an application and don’t instantly get invited for the HireVue.
When you finally get called up for a HireVue, you’ll get a link sent to your email. You can do the email on your phone or on a computer – as long as it has a webcam. We recommend using a laptop since they usually have an integrated webcam and you’ll minimize camera shake.
After you click on the link for your HireVue interview, you’ll be shown a few introductory videos – which you can skip if you like. When the actual interview starts, you will click a button to display the first question. A countdown timer will appear which displays the amount of time you have to prepare your answer. Usually, this is about 30 seconds.
After the prep timer winds down to zero (or if you choose to click on a button that skips the prep timer ahead) HireVue will start recording. You’ll usually have about 2 minutes to answer before HireVue cuts you off.
This process will repeat itself 3 to 5 times until there are no more questions for you and the interview is over.
