I am already scheduled for the March 5th class. It's possible you will also be in the 1305 class!! Would you accept or would you ask for a later date?

I am now only waitin for my trainin date! I am so ready to turn in my two weeks good Lord's willin!:)

Oh, goodness, I don't have a fax, but maybe I'll just take my doc's statement to Kinko's when I get it! I don't need any more delays, for Pete's sake!
Would still love to hear from those of you who had medication issues, just to know how unique (or not) mine is, but I understand, too, if you'd rather not "share." Anyway, my email (or reasonable facsimile thereof) is listed in one of my posts above.
Hope to be meeting you all soon!

Iheartflying in Chicago, Illinois said: ...the hospital sent over my discharge summary. I was feeling fairly confident that I had done everything they wanted. I was still hopeful. About the second week of December I received yet another letter from the medical department that they wanted me to schedule an appointment with their personnel for an evaluation. Gosh, just when I thought I was all cleared! I headed back to Chicago and met the person. He said there shouldn't be a problem, it was just AE's way of covering themselves and protecting me as well. Now, the real clincher was all this was taking place either during Thanksgiving or Christmas, or New Years...and when you get a letter from the medical saying they want the requested information in 15 calendar days, you really start to sweat, cause not every Dr is readily available and the AE medical was on vacation. But I had done EVERYTHING they had wanted me to do, and it would be in God's hands now. January came and went for the most part, I hated checking my mailbox for fear I'd get another medical request. I spent my time looking online at cases specific to mine and their possible outcome, I had a sense of confidence knowing that I'd be okay because I had worked at another airline and had I not been accepted would have been grounds for some discrimination...but I digress. I called, and let me tell you, when the AE personnel who evaluated me said, "Call them, bug them, this is your future, and they need to stay on top of it" it gave me confidence to call once a week and say, Hey, what's going on with my file. Finally, on January 28th, after almost three month of this process, I get an e-mail saying I cleared medical but had forgotten to send over my Conditional offer letter signed...jeezz...I immediately sent it over and on Jan. 29th was email my training date of Feb 19th...

I thought I had replied to this message.. Hmm well I will be in that training class as well are you excited???

Iheartflying in Chicago, Illinois said: Sorry for this being so long, but I want to tell ya'll, if it's meant to be it's meant to be. I've been there. Don't give up and remember to dot your "i"s and cross your "t"s. Everyone I interviewed with on Nov 8th graduated last week. It hurts a bit, seeing them get their wings and I'm still here waiting for training to get here...but things happen for a reason...I won't tell you what happened after all this, but things work out for the better... I will give ya'll one bit of concrete advice, check out the AFAEagle.org site, it's AE's union site and it has the contract with pay scales, reserve specifics, etc, etc, be informed and browse it thru and thru...

This sounds like somethin I am goin though, that is true though if it is meant ot be it is meant to be.

From what I've been told by an F/A who graduated training earlier this month, his schedule is four days on, two off, 4, 2, then 3 on, 1 off, 3 on...and he's anticipating that to continue at least for the 6 months he's on probation. After that, well, if you can bid days off and hold them , you can go to school.

infoseeker in Columbia, South Carolina said: Interviewed on 1/15
Medical on 2/20 at DFW
______________________

Quick question... I've been taking Adderall for a mild case of ADD for about 7 years now. I know that I can function well without it (I don't take it on weekends... just when working for an added edge) but I'm concerned after reading that it isn't FAA approved (for Pilots). I know that the pilots and FAs have different requirements for their medicals... are there any FAs who can shed some light on Adderall/ADHD as a flight attendant ? I have the prescription and a letter from my doctor, but I care more about this job than being on medication that could easily be changed. I just don't want to get to medical and be told that I have to detox or something.

Thanks!!!

do you know how many ppl passed the interview on january 15?
thanks!

Fingerprinting is usually done on the day of the interview if you get a CJO. Once the background check clears, then the company will schedule you for medical and fly you to it.

If everything goes well and your prepared with any list of medication, prescription lenses etc they may ask for ..then I believe it would be around 6 days (more or less)

If the nurse feels you did not do so well on any specific section of the medical she/he may request additional information from your doctor or whoever. So the process may be delayed.
