Default Hogan

Hello. I received the e mail for the Hogan test and I am a little nervous as I see people have failed it. Do you have any tips for me before I take it? Thank you in advance.

Numerous threads and posts on this topic.

That said....

DO:
1) Relax. Find a quiet distraction free location and open a beverage of choice.

2) READ each question and answer each question HONESTLY. Pay attention to words like "always" or "sometimes" and make sure you are answering the actual question asked.

3) Your immediate first answer is usually the one you want unless you misread the question

DO NOT:
1) Try to give the answer you THINK "they" want

2) Overthink a question

3) Change you answer based on 1 or 2
Nearly all the drama involving this test is caused by pilots either "trying too hard" (hard for type A types) or actually being deceptive in answers.

This test is not looking for perfect people, but it has built-in methods to red flag inconsistencies and deception.

Good luck!

Also, very important to take it when well rested. Tired can skew the results a bit.

You also only have 7 days from when you received that email to take it. Don't drag your feet.

I passed the hogan but I can't tell you why as I know numerous great people who have not. What I can tell you is that in basic indoc they do another personality type test and then you divide up into 4 different personality groups. Its a communication exercise but I was surprised the class was evenly divided between the 4 groups. I guess what I'm saying is that I don't think with the hogan they are looking for a certain type of personality, just be as honest and authentic as possible.

It comes from someone in the UAL hiring department, and the subject line if I recall correctly is United Airlines Job Fit Invitation.
