From what I read, their SJU positions are a 5 week temp jig, so I would not call SJU a base/hub, least til AA Eagle finally goes away. A FA open house was held on 05/19 in a western PR resort, I wish I had learned before hand, but apparently, they did not seem to have advertised it much.

I got a call from hr the other day but have to call her on monday. I think they are hiring for atl this time around because they start flying for dal in the fall and they would have to get us trained before then. Hope you all get a call but it seems like they only want exp flight attendants. Good luck to you all....

I received a call from hr today and they are looking to fill atl, missippi and west virginia and she asked what area and told her that I was willing to go to any base, and know that they are starting atl in the fall and if she needed to fill that first I would be more than willing to go..She said that they may or maynot have another o/h my res has been forwarded to the hiring manager and I will hear either way and I might have my final over the phone and they make a decision then. Training is in fll for 2 weeks and it is paid 18.50 per hour for 75 and per diem like 1.80. Hope that helps all of you..

Happysilver, Thanks for your post. I just submitted my application on-line. I have no previous FA experience and need to be based out of ft lauderdale because of family. Do you think they will be hiring for ft lauderdale base anytime soon? If it is a "senior" base does that mean I would not have a shot of being placed there?

I have been a flight attendant for many years and have smaller a/c experience and I know what is to make the customer experience to more than special you want that customer to have a memeorable experience. 'The lady in hr told me on the phone while doing my interview she is forwarding my resume cause of my experience to the hiring manager and they might not have a o/h so they might do the final over the phone as well. Either way is fine, but I am from phx, so hopefully they will do mine over the phone. So tell me how was the training. What bases are they trying to fill cause I told I know they are opening atl, and would go to that or anyone that they have the need to fill and she liked my answer. She said I would here from here in two week. please keep in touch and I will definetly do the same I am very excited about it..how many legs do you do and are these all day trips or do you actually get layovers. I s there per diem as well she only talked about the 18.50 per hour with the garantee of 75 and I would imagine that you will probably go over that...

They are not hiring for FLL at the time. But you can always start in another base and when an openings occurs just transfer. About the experience, just give it a try apply, if this is what you want do it!! Best of luck to you!!!

Hi Everyone,
I applied for the Altoona base about a month ago when I first saw the posting on flight attendant careers. Well, I never heard anything and figured they weren't interested. So today I got an email invite to an open house in Altoona on Friday, Aug 10th. The day after tomorrow and I'm really excited about it. Is anyone else going? Do they do all of the selections in one day? I'm wondering if it will be all day trips or multi-day trips? Will we be United Express wearing United Express metal? All these will be answered, I'm sure on Friday, but if anyone has the inside scoop, that would be amazing. I have about 10 years of flying, but have been out for a few years. Want to get back into it. Bored housewife here! I wish each and every one of us the best in our goal to earn our wings and go top side!

I saw in the news that their very first flight into Bridgeport, WV mistakenly landed at a tiny airport in Fairmont,WV. The A/C is too heavy for the runway so they'll make adjustments so it can take off....remove seats and such. What a shame....not good publicity for them just starting out.

I FLY FOR THIS COMPANY AND I WILL TELL YOU TO THINK MORE THAN TWICE ABOUT WORKING FOR THEM . THEY ARENT UNION AND WILL WORK YOU TO DEATH . WE ARE TRYING TO GET A UNION CAUSE THEY JUST DONT CARE ABOUT THEIR EMPLOYEES AT ALL . THE COMPANY DOESNT KNOW WHAT IT IS DOING AND I HAVE ABOUT 20 OTHER FLIGHT ATTENDANTS THAT WILL BACK ME UP. THE PILOTS ARE SO OVER WORKED AS WELL AND THIS IS SO UNSAFE. EVEN SPIRIT IS ABETTER COMPANY AND THEY HAVE A CONTRACT . WE LOST TWO PEOPLE AFTER TRAINING CAUSE IT TOOK 4 WEEKS TO GET TO THEIR IOE'S .MANY OF US HAVE APPLIED TO OTHER CARRIERS AS WELL. IF YOU WANT TO WORK FOR A GOOD COMPANY GO TO SKYWEST,EXPRESSJET OR ALASKA. THINK BEFORE YOU WORK HERE THIS IS ANOTHER COLGAN AND A INHUMANE TREATMENT ...

I agree what you said cause I was stranded in the hotel in JACKSONVILLE for 3 days without any clothes except my uniform . I called crew sceduling and they said told me to wait it out till my bags were found . This is the most inhumane company and the public needs to know it. o yea and our paychecks dont break down how many hours you work so you dont if you are getting paid correct.

Don't you think the North flying will be differentdat ? I think its all day trips? How rough are we talking about? Unions aren't everything. Trust me, the company will drag that out for years and years. Aren't they just very under staffed? Once more are hired, things should even out a bit. Please give us examples of some of the incidents that has happened to you. Now I don't know if I should go or not.

Well I'm going for sure. Have my suit ready and will do my nails in the morning. I spent several hours on the Pilot Central forum to read as much as I could about Silver Airways and not ONE of the current pilots complained about the company!! So I'm thinking it's all in what you make it. If the pilots were complaining, then I'd be more concerned. Also, the above negative comments are from the same area, close to the same time, so I think it's the same person trying to discourage people. Sad. Also no f/a that I know of in 10 years, has ever checked their crew bag, so how could they have lost it? Doesn't make sense. So let's put on our best and do our best and after the interview tomorrow, I'll give everyone the scoop.

That is a great attitude to have going in for sure!!! :-) This job can be very exauhsting at times but I started at 18yr old and here I am 18 yrs later and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world! It's a life style some can not handle but for me it has been and always will be my life :-)

Our company policy that all F/A bags were to be stored in the overhead bins in the aft of the a/c. One day, a PAX walked off with my luggage (that had a CREW tag on it) and left his behind. They looked exactly the same except for the CREW tag. I was on a layover in JAX and cried for two days because I had to borrow my fellow crew's clothes....they were boys and I am a girl! I can laugh about it now, but I wasn't so happy then. Thank goodness the guy returned my luggage.

Hello there, I applied and got a invitation to go to the one in Virginia! I am super excited and kind of nervous because I do not have flight attendant experience, I only have 5 years of working at a hotel and 3 years working at a Bank. Also, I am from Orlando, Fl and I am considering on driving? by any chance do you live in floirda? If anyone reads this feel free to respond!!! I am not sure to drive 12 hours and not get hired! But I am thinking positive, this is my dream job!

Hi IsanAn,

I live in your area and wanted to go to but the 14 hour drive is not enough time for me to get my nails done, grab my suit from dry cleaners, drive out there in time for a good night's sleep. I hope that they will have another one soon!

As long as you have c/s experience at the hotel and bank you will be great!

If you have c/s experience at the Ritz, then I know you have great skills! That is a great hotel..."Ladies and Gentlemen serving Ladies and Gentlemen' . LOL

It is really up to you. It is a very long drive, you will be exhausted when you get there and it is important to be well rested and refreshed in the morning. Have you had enough time to prepare for an F/A interview? WOuld hate for you to go unprepared, but sometimes people get lucky! If you decide to go you better get started in the next few hours so you can get a good nights sleep, oh and find a decent hotel!
