fly2013 in Los Angeles, California said: Hi all I just received information that Legacy carrier American Airlines will be hiring flight attendants for 2013!! Whether this true or not I'm unsure but a flight attendant I spoke with said the are hiring close to 1500 flight attendants and they are going to start recruiting towards the end of this year!!!! But once again I'm not sure if this information is accurate....:) but if it is......get ready American hasn't hired in a long time!!!!!

Yes, this is true. I have a friend that works for AA and she said the same thing. Recruiting starts November 5, 2012 and they need 1500 Flight Attendants. I live in Dallas and work close to DFW Airport....the corporate office is down the street from me. I would apply but they want a lot out of you. Go look at the job requirements...the one I hate is that I would have to be very thin. I don't know about leaving my dog behind.

Hello all!! I have read that the minimum age requirement for F/A's with American is 20. Here is my question. Does that mean 20 to apply, or 20 by the time training starts? I know different airlines look at this differently. Wondering if any current or past American F/A's could give me some insight into this. I will turn 20 on December 25th this year (yes, I am a Christmas baby... haha). So, I would be 19 when I apply, and if selected for an interview in December would be 19, but would be 20 when training starts in Janaury. Any help is appreciated!! Thanks all!! Best of luck to everyone!!

Not meaning to be argumentative, but have been reading
this thread, and saw this.Where were you reading job requirements that said you had to be very thin, or was that just implied? They will usually say height and weight proportionate, saying very thin would be just plain illegal...

Yeah pretty sure thats illegal... They can't discriminate against you because of your weight as long as you can perform the task and duties as a F/A (ie:reach test, jumpseat requirment). Make sure your only looking at the info that is put out by American... not just anything you may read online.

Heard from a co-worker that American Eagle FAs have to pay taxes for non-revving on domestic flights...is that true? If so does AA follow the same system? Because that would be a bummer. Also does anyone know if they offer upgrades to frequent fliers on international long-haul flights? One nice thing about Delta is that if you go overseas frequent fliers don't get upgrades into the first class cabin so its usually full of non-revs. And there's no extra charge. But then United I've heard charges employees extra to sit in first class. There's no way I want to ask about flight benefits in an interview so I figure this is the safest resource I have. Thanks!

Found this link on Google. Obviously its a 3rd party website (so take this info with a grain of salt) but it might be a good jumping off point for people to see if they may be eligible.
www.avjobs.com/careers/requirements/american_desc.asp#.UJG2M2lxvoo

Also if you log on to the AA Careers site and create a profile you can set up an email alert when the job posting opens. So I am going to set that up and put my phone on high volume when I go to sleep.

You'll want to do exactly what the application says. Get your stuff together (resume, job history etc.) in case you might be eligible. But if it says that you must be 20 to apply don't apply. Most airlines have a set-up where you have to wait 6-12 months to re-apply after being rejected. So if AA opens hiring again in January you would be eligible at that time. Obviously if it says you must be 20 at the conclusion of training apply (and FAST). Good luck.

The main concern is that you can fit into the jump seat harness and buckle up (the harness allows for some adjustment, so you can in fact make it slightly looser if needs be). Also, you need to be able to comfortably fit into a two person jump seat without taking more than your own space, so that another crew member sitting next to you can fit (although you each have your own harness/buckle). I hope this helps to settle nerves a little, I am sure you will be fine!

Hello,
I was wondering if I had flight attendant experience prior to the 10 year history (Southwest Airlines 1999 and American Eagle 1996) would that help my chances in getting an interview, or do they only look at the last 10 years?

Thanks!

The rsv for new hires will be one month on rsv one month line until PBS is implemented. Once they get PBS everyone will be going to A days.

Probably be better if you didn't mention it. Unless they ask. They could think, Well, this person already has an offer elsewhere, why should we even bother. On the other hand, tf you have an interview and they ask then tell them. But make sure you tell them you would rather work for AA.

List it under other skills or something like that on your resume. It couldn't hurt. I use to be an EMT in 1995 and I have it on my resume. I also list it under other skills on the application if there is a place.

Apply anyway. There are many flight attendants that are on the large side. I am between a size 16 and 18 and I have seen flight attendants that look the same size or bigger than me. I was also told by a FA not to worry about it. I was also concerned until I saw some of the FA's at Houston.

The pay for FA's in every airline is very low. They pay around $20.00 per hour. You are only paid for the hours that you are actually in the air ( not while you are waiting in the airports.)
Per diem is aprox 2.00 per hour. You are only guaranteed around 70 hours per month. That means you have to be able to live on less than $1400 per month. The 8.5 week training is not paid. My take on it is that you already need to be financially comfortable or have no bills in order to do this career. After a few years the pay will get much better but the first year or two will be rough. Anyone... feel free to correct me if I am missing something.

Yes that sounds about right to me......they tell you to have at least $1,500-2,000 saved for training, and moving to your new base. Spiritual in Delray I think you did a great job in explaining this information!!

Also, if I could add something here.....When I interviewed with AA a while ago they had a group orientation that explained everything. You don't have to accept an offer if it is not right for you. I'm assuming it will be a similar experience this time around.

What should my resume say and look like? I was a mental health therapist for 12 years, before I was laid-off, and now I've been working in retail. I was an actress in NYC for 10 years, before all that. How do I structure my resume for AA? Also, do I wear pants or a skirt for the interview? I've got lots of experience doing many different things. Thanks!

Well usually people who become a flight attendant dont do it for the money.....of course you have to be able to support yourself....but one will get into this career with the satisfaction of knowing they are providing exceptional customer service, traveling the world, and being able to experience things in life that will take a lifetime for most people. I say weigh all of your options, and see if it is worth it to you. The fist couple of years is bad with pay....but if you stick with it...it does get a lot better :)

best wishes :)

RSV stand for Reserve, and PBS is a type of bidding system that flight attendants use to bid monthly for their schedules, including off days, and shifts. :)

Wow what an amazing background!!! In my opinion (anyone feel free to chime in) your resume should scream customer service, they only request a 10 year background check on your work history...but your background shows you are a very diverse person which is great!!! As far as what to wear...American has a reputation of conservative, and very professional.....try your best to look like a flight attendant...very crisp, and professional!!! Maybe some more ladies will chime in and give more advice on this matter.

Good luck to you!!

Hey, Silverwaters05...No, I haven't. I could maybe borrow the money I need to have while I am in training, but I also have to pay my rent and car payment back home. That's 2 months of rent and car payments, plus the money they say we need to have while in training. I really, really want to work for AA, and I am going to apply. I guess I'll just have to have faith and hope for miracles! How about you?

Hi Pamela
This may help you to feel a little better about the money situation in training. While in training most of your needs associated w/training (financial) are met, in other words, your room and board... you really need minimal $ while actually in training. Perhaps money for a haircut/laundry/some odd toiletry that you might have forgot to bring. Essentially just little things here and there, perhaps a meal out away from the training facility once or twice. Training itself, is a pretty low financial burden on candidates... perhaps getting set up in a crash pad will present some burden after training, but often a F/A runs the place and the initial $ is less than getting a traditional apt/rent. Somehow it all works out, if you can just have your standard bills at home paid. F/A's out of training tend to really pull together, and I have seen what might be considered "miracles" w/flight crews helping one another. I hope this helps.
