Does anyone out here work for American Eagle? Just wondering how long the average reserve was considering they are a pretty big regional. Also curious about the interview process in Dallas. Going next week, and just wanted a heads up. Thanks

I worked for Eagle for 4 years. If you're looking for a long term career as a flight attendant try for Continental, Continental Express or Delta. Comair would be a better bet than American Aeagle. They hire pretty much anyone that shows up and looks decent. Wear a suit and your in. The turn over is pretty high too if that tells you anything. Training was very easy if you you have good study habits. I was on reserve for like 3 months, but I'm not sure how long it's going for now. I was based in Chiocago and I think they're reserve is the shortest. Dallas and LA were pretty long.I had a good time though. It was perfect for me because I only wanted the flight benefits and didn't really want to work much. Once I got a line they were really good about letting me drop my trips. I actually called in sick for 9 months before I quit earlier this year. They were so desperate to keep flight attendants that I never even got written up for calling in. the union at American Eagle is terrible also. They're absolutely WORTHLESS! But good luck.I recommend you keep your options open and consider other airlines.

I was wondering about AE. I submitted an app online and got an invite for interview the very next day. I'm going to go though at the beginning of December. If I get hired fine but I'm still going to explore other options as well. Thanks for that info Former Fly Girl. And I also thought that if I got some experience there that would help me get on at another airline in the future if I decided not to stay with them so we'll see.

I also have an interview with American Eagle this wednesday... Besides the documents they ask you to provide on their list, such as you drivers license and passport, is there anything else I should take?

What sort of questions will they ask? What can I expect? What is their pay??

Robin in Baltimore, Maryland said: bases are in
LosAngeles Dallas Chicago Boston NY Miami SanJuan PR
you can transfer to any base you want reserve times vary from base to base: shortest time for reserve is probably Chicago or Boston, longest is Miami or LA.
Interviews in Dallas are group and 1 on 1 Be yourself, have fun

In how many time a flight attendant is able to transfer to another base??

You can put in that you want to transfer, and as soon as they get something open in the area you want, they'll transfer you. You get an unlimited number of transfers, so if you really wanted to try out all the cities, you could.

Hi,to everyone!
The reason for all of us to be on this forum is Flight Attendant Career!
And I'm not exception.I submitted an application with AE,and very shortly was advised that I have been selected as a prospective candidate with possibility to schedule my interview,and two attachments with all instraction for travel arrangement.
I have pretty good experience with American Cruise Lines,hotel and restaurant business in NY, but there is one think gives me more couses to worry about...
In fact,I'm not original american and English is my second lenguage, that makes
a lot of inconvenience for me...
Also,I don't have the driver license and wonder if it's stricly required!?
How does the interview and recruiting process work? Please,share Your knowledge and experience.
I appreciate any information,advise and support.
Best Regards and Good Luck to all of You!

dpfans in Yulee, Florida said: Hello!
I was interviewed with AE and hired! I am waiting now to get my date to start school. What I can tell you is to talk and talk alot, visit with everyone, smile, smile and smile some more. Contrary to a post above they do not hire everyone. They were quite selective the day I went, but I had a great time! I was not nervous at all and I thinked that helped as well! I cannot wait to start my new career!

Hi
When you got hired did they tell you right away or did you have to wait?
Also when you said "visit with everyone what exactly does that mean?

dpfans in Yulee, Florida said: You, your spouse & kids will get benefits starting the day you graduate. Your parents will also get 24 one way passes per year after 2 years these change to buddy passes where anybody can use them of your choice. Here is some more info someone might like to have:
Guarantee 75 flight hours per month, start at 18.03 per flight hour & 1.65 per diem
Training 3 weeks Training then 1 week IOE training = 4 weeks unpaid - they provide room and board.
Bid schedules from the 15th - 20th of each month to determine your schedule for following month.
Reserve (on call) when you start up to a year or even over a year, no way to really determine that in the beginning. Once you are a senior flight attendant you hold a line and can work 10-18 days per month.
Most days you can fly in a row is 6, you will have 11 days off a month with at least one of those times off being 4 days.

Hope this answers some of your questions.

Thank You, Dpfans!!!

You have answered the ??s that i'm most concerned about regarding pay/hours worked and flight benefits.

I live in the NY area & I have no idea how I'm gonna pay my rent if/when i get hired :0, assuming I get to stay in this area. Do many FA's have roommates and or 2nd jobs to help pay living expenses? Is that per diem pay $1.65/flight hr???

That for the great info!

dpfans in Yulee, Florida said: I will tell you what I did: I applied on a Saturday, received e-mail on Monday asking me to come for interview. Called them on Monday, set up interview for Wednesday morning, flew up on Tuesday afternoon (stayed at the Baymont)- had to entertain myself all evening but I just went and got a French Manicure (just a little walk from motel to nail place in shopping center) and something to eat, went for the interview the following morning (Hotel had shuttle)(-FYI- when you arrive in DFW you have to call the hotel to get the shuttle out to you and they also provide the one the next morning to the interview- which is really convenient!) So schedule as soon as you can I would say!

Thanks agane!

dpfans in Yulee, Florida said: Now that I do not know. English is my only language. I think they are just looking to see if you are fluent enough to speak and listen, understand and others understand you. If that is true you should be fine. But again I really do not know since I am not actually talking to you but e-mailing. Good luck!

Your comments are so helpful,thanks!
"Why do you want to be a FA?" What is the best answer they expect from you?
I'm going to follow your advice and will call them tomorrow! And who knows,if I'm lucky see you on March.

there are two reserve shifts
- airport stand by (8 hours)
- home stand by (on call for 15 hours) if they do call you for a trip you have to sign in within two hours

you don't know which base until youre in training. AMR is divesting American Eagle so there are many people leaving...this is good if youre joiining the company now because you get faster seniority and are on reserve less time

They should be hiring like crazy :D DO have fun, be genuine and professional in the interview. dress conservative. be willing to move to any base they need you to, smile and interact with the others there. Qestions are easy-have a couple customer service experience stories ready to go. Why do you want to be a flight attendant...what qualities make you great....etc.

Good luck - its a fun job at Eagle and the pay is equal to mainline carriers.

HOw long on reserv just depends on how many are hired under you.
bos typically is the fastest to hold a line - little over a year...ord maybe year&half...dfw 2 years, all else longer. plus-- being a senior reserve is way better than a NEW reserve...you dont see the 5:30 am airport standby shift as much...it does get better ! :)

One question asked in the past is: would u serve more liquor to someone already drunk on the plane? What are they looking for as an answer?

Do you know when they have classes begin? Do they start a new class every month on the first of the month?

...trying to plan ahead a little....

I had an interview with them 2 weeks ago. It went really good only thing is i was told i needed an I-551 stamp on my passport (cuz i'm in the caribbean) and once i've gotten that call them and they will schedule another interview. Thing is i cant get that stamp/visa/green card unless they file on my behalf. Told them that and was told that they dont sponser visa's however when i do get it call them back. They still kept all the info they asked for so for now my FA dream is on hold. :(

if u are looking to pick up high fly hours on days off, then base yourself in dfw or rd where there are most open time trips. i am based in boston and there are never trips to pick up. (which is fine with me, i like to fly the least as possioble, and just make the 70 hour guarantee. some months as reserve i fly under 30 hours
