When submitting did you get a conformational that the questionnaire was sent, and did you have to long back in after you completed it? sorry for all the questions.

If you do not get the assessment then it means you do not qualify.

No. When you fill out the app it gives you the option to fill out the questionnaire later. If I'm not mistaken the application is not complete unless the questionnaire is done (along with submitting the application itself).

Same thing with me---completed the survey through the separate email link to it. I haven't received confirmation that they received it, but when I went back into it, in case it didn't submit, it said I already completed it. I'm a little worried, though, since I haven't received the email from AA directly saying "thanks for applying, etc."

Tonyaflygirl in Arlington, Virginia

20 months ago

Hi everyone,

My name is Tonya and I am currently a flight attendant with another major airline. I just applied to American and just wanted to get others opinions on a few things:

1. Do you think we will be flying SOLELY domestic? Or do you think we will also be doing international?

2. I heard a rumor that the starting hourly wage will only be $17.25 an hour. How does everyone feel about that? That is very low compared to all of the other airlines. (At my current airline I started at $21.00, at the regional I worked for before I started at $18.00.)

3. Is anyone scared about AA merging with USAir and then just getting furloughed?

4. Where do you think we will be based? Do you think we will get to choose or do you think we will all get assigned to DFW? If we get to choose, which bases do you think will be open for us?

Let's get some good conversation going!

Good luck to everyone who applied :)

The American Airlines interview is by invitation and only after an applicant has successfully completed either an online recruitment form at aacareers.com.

The applicant may then undergo a telephone interview and be invited to an interview at American Airlines headquarters in Dallas/ Fort Worth. *Please note that some applicants will not be required to complete a telephone pre-screen and will go straight to the interview in Dallas/ Fort Worth. This decision is based on each individual application.

Telephone pre-interview: A convenient time for the applicant will be set up in advance and an American Airlines recruiting representative will call the applicant at the designated time. Be sure you are free of all other activities before taking the call! You must be able to concentrate fully on the conversation with the recruiter. This is considered an important portion of your interview!

Can I ask which major you're with? Just wondering if I should wait until certain other ones are hiring. Thanks and good luck.

Just my opinion, but I kind of doubt a major international airline would hire FAs solely for domestic. That starting pay sounds awfully low, especially for a major, but I will wait and see the official word from AA on that. I doubt anyone has a clue about bases since, as I'm sure you know, operational needs of airlines are constantly changing. Also, base transfers are always an option as some point. The possible merger with USAir does concern me, but any airline can have furloughs at any time, so to me it's just another part of the airline business---that stuff is out of my control!

I am somewhat concerned, after reading over the past 10yrs, how many times AA furloughed and brought back, and then furloughed the jr people. I too wondered if US and AA merge, if you would be more assured of a job if you were on the US side?? Tough call.

EWRFA,

The newhires will be trained for both domestic and international, that is why the training will be 8 1/2 weeks. The fence between domestic and international flying will come down to mirror US Airways' flying.

I got the conformation that my application on a whole was submitted at the end when I logged back in. You got nothing at all? If not I think you should go back and check maybe you never submitted it.

I figured it would be both domestic and international and furloughs are always part of the equation and am willing to take my chances. I'm on furlough now from another airline, and never thought it would happen, but this industry is sooo unpredictable.

Yes, it is a tough call but there are a few things to consider:
1. The 450 FAs to be hired by US Airways in 2013 is for normal attrition. 155 will go to PHX and the rest will be split between PHL and CLT.
2. The 1500+ that American are hiring in 2013 is to replace the voluntary separation recently offered. To date, more than 2500 FAs have taken the separation package which includes 40K and flight/medical/dental package. It's a very attractive offer. The newhires will come in at half the cost to American.
3. The merger announcement is something that we all expect to happen soon, hopefully by the end of January when AA's extension for reorganization expires.
4. US Airways has promised the AA unions that it will save at least 6000 of the 11,000 jobs to be cut by AA. Most of the jobs lost will not be crew. Furloughs are always a possibility but US Airways has always been fair in that department. AA has not.

Training is unpaid and hotel is provided. You should apply to both postings as they are two different positions. Good luck.

@Miranda- hopefully if there was a merge between US-AA a new agreement would come to term regarding Foreign Nationals. Something on the order of- they will be letting the FN’s go before involuntary furloughing United States employees again. Something the current union has never brought to the table- most likely because they received hush money under the table to not ever question the FN’s. There are quite of few FN’s at AA flying very nice trips to Deep South America out of MIA.

I also have not received an email confirmation. I am worried that maybe due to an old email address in my profile from when I applied for another position a few years ago. It says that my new e-mail is in my profile but the old one refuses to be edited! UGH! Funny as it also will not allow me to email my profile to me or print it either. Could it be a pop up blocking Taleo?

So, I am not sure what is going on. Help Anyone? I would appreciate any suggestions!

You will have to pass the LOD, language of Destination test which is oral and written. Some native speakers have not had to take the written test at all.
