i recently saw that Hawaiian Airlines is now hiring! I think it'd be amazing to live in and work in and out of Honolulu! Has anyone heard any news of when interviews will take place? training? pay scales? scheduling? and what its like? who's going to be applying?

That would be a nice job to do. I wonder if they fly you out for the interviews and OH or not. From what I'm reading on the site the training is unpaid, unless they compensate you for food or housing. And it looks like I won't be able to apply cause of the language requirement :(

Oh well.. still on the wait with those other airlines! LOL

Hello Everyone! I am just wondering if anyone knows anything more about the interview process? I know that it will be a group interview but not much else. Does any one know if it is a one or two day interview? And what kind of flight benifits they offer?

HPN in Port Chester, New York said: Just got an email from them too, however, they only have interviews this Saturday and the fares to/from New York are extremely expensive! This might be an advantage as most from the mainland cannot afford to go and, thus, less competition. My other concern is that I heard they don't pay for accommodations during training?? I find this hard to believe especially in one of the most expensive states in the nation. Still debating though......

I think they are really aiming for the local population....and Honolulu is a one million plus place....I know they don't have to cast their net wide at all.

did you look at the pictures of the FAs on their website (look at every single picture you can on the website)....as the proverb goes, a picture says a thousand words. A few pictures say a few thousand words more. :)

Can someone please answer this question: I notice that the airline is affirmative action and I see only Pacific Islanders in the pictures...does the airline hire overwhelmingly from this group? (I am hearing that that is true from people who live in HNL). Maybe they want to cultivate a certain tourist image. Thanks for any information.

Got my invite for the interview this Saturday...but not sure if I can afford to live in Honolulu for very long??? Does anyone know for sure what the starting salary is or what their guarantee is per month? $19/block hour is really not enough to support living on the island!!

I got the email for the interview on Saturday too. I presume that I have to buy my own ticket to HNL? I already got hired by Skywest, just wondering if Hawaiian Air pays more than Skywest does?

Hey Bluestream...I have a couple of friends that recently went to work for Skywest and they LOVE it!! They fly a lot,hardly ever have to sit on reserve. Skywest is a great company, and I'm sure Hawaiian is too, but the cost of living would be much more reasonable with Skywest!

Bluestream, I am a current Skywest F/A and I was also invited to the Hawaiian interview. I love Skywest but have always wanted to work for Hawaiian. I am now not sure if making a change will be better for me. I am not on reserve and am sitting very comfortable at Skywest. It would be nice to know more information about pay and benifits before going all the way out to HNL for the interview. And yes it is at your own expense to get there and for your hotel.

Thank you very much for your help. I think I will stick with Skywest, seeing how expensive it is to live in HNL!!!I can fly on buddy pass to the interviews easily, however the part where they don't pay for your housing during the training might be hard for me.

I got my e-mail and agreed to fly out from Florida for the group interview on the 10th. Should I stay for the weekend? The Week? Would I have to fly out again for another interview? I would live at my own expense for 6 weeks if I had to. What a dream job. Please give me some advice.

They should announce the interview process or schedule especially for other states applicants.
This was the 1st question; "Are you available between April 10 - April 23 to go through multiple interview phases? (Travel & accommodations to the interview are not provided)"

If I live in mainland like you, I really want to know I should stay some more or comeback later...
How many interviews that "multiple" means..I guess 3 times. any thought?

The 10 groups' interview on Sat, how many people in one group?
What kind of questions might be?

so anxious!

Hey guys! I recently applied to Hawaiian and was not granted an interview. Although I don't know another language I currently fly for Alaska airlines and am a resident of Hawaii. Its driving me crazy trying to figure out why i didn't get a cattle call interview (even with a employee referral). Also I looked back at my profile and everything from my work history on was gone. Just wondering if that happened to anyone else? or if its fate telling me it wasn't meant to be. :(

Thanks for the help!!!

I just got my invite yesterday for Saturday, April 10th as well.

I've heard from a current instructor that it's $20/hr starting with a minimum of 75 hrs/month paid, however, it is true that the six week of training is UNPAID.

I'm really excited and anxious too... I don't know what to expect in a group interview. Anyone else ever interview for Hawaiian?

Yes I've been to a few and they always change it up so be ready for anything, one time I went there were a bunch of hats on the floor (viking, joker, firefighter) and everyone had to introduce themselves and pick a hat and explain why you picked that hat.

Another time they asked for us to makeup a new slogan for Hawaiian Airlines, or to use anything located in the center of the floor (Hats, Drawing board,you could even do a skit) to emulate the mission statement or values of Hawaiian airlines.

There are usually 15 to 20 people in the group interview, and 2 FA's or HR people with notepads watching your every move while someone else talks a little about the company and asks questions. You never know what their looking for but definitely a must good suit, impeccable grooming, and Confidence.

Good luck to everyone!!

Wow, thank you Kalei, that is very informative and helpful.

Just a little FYI, I heard that in the 5 days the ad was up, there were 2300 applicants, and 800 were sent invitations for interviews. Of these candidates, there are only 60 positions to fill. These numbers make me nervous!

hi mike...
i went to sidestep.com and looked up hotels. for me i really don't care where i stay so long i have a bed and shower. you can get rooms on the cheap for like $59 a night in waikiki, which is were i will be staying. as to how long after the interview until someone hears back i really don't know but i expect for multiple interviews within a week or two after the initial interview. this is why i plan on staying for two weeks. i hope this helps and good luck to you and all!

HPN, I agree with you. I previously flew for UAL and during the 7 weeks of training we were provided housing and meals. We also received $1500 towards the end of the course. It is kind of a gamble but I've got a little money saved and have decided to give it a go. I also am saving money on air fare because I am flying on a buddy pass. If it weren't for that I would not be able to go.
