If it's like another airline I'm familiar with you have to have their SS#'s and birth dates. They might even ask for documentation like birth or marriage certificates.

They didn't fingerprint me. I haven't received a TBNT email but this job seriously doesn't pay enough. Even the figure of your gross salary is quite frightening in today's economy. There are certain things I have gotten used to such as a roof over my head and running water. I was earning more than this when I was a FA ten years ago. I earn far more than what AA is offering right now. I would be more than foolish to take such a huge pay reduction. Good luck to all though.

Just so no one else is "surprised" the current position for AA FA starts at $20.85 & $1.65 Per diem with a guarantee of 75 hours monthly. That equals roughly $1563.75 per month before taxes and per diem is taken into consideration. Is it a lot? No. Will you be taking a pay cut by taking this job? Yeah, probably. As a current flight attendant I can go ahead and warn you that you will NOT become rich doing this, and quite honestly you might even be living pay check to pay check until you build some seniority. However the silver lining is that this is an AWESOME career/job and the pros far outweigh the cons. I've had several jobs in the past and this by far is the most fulfilling I've ever had. I'm sure my experience and opinion won't be the same for everyone (and that's fine) but it's definitely worth a shot. (s/n: I still have a roof over my head and to my knowledge my water is still on) lol

aaaaaw silly bird, my comment wasn't in direct response to you, it was a general statement so that no one else is "surprised" which you seem to be. Not exactly sure HOW you can be surprised when you claim to have done this before and its been written at least 50 times in this forum how much the pay is, but whatever. As far as your education, sorry sunshine, no one cares, and despite you having 2 bachelors degrees you still weren't chosen...(lol funny how that happens sometimes). What I find MOST hilarious is that even though you have 2 bachelors degrees and make 60k you STILL applied for a position in which you KNEW you wouldn't be making as much. lol aaaaw poor thing. I guess you should change your name from HOPEtoflysoon to WONTbeflyingsoon. So, um, yeah, im done with the indeed forum verbal battle with you, I have a Medical to prepare for. See SOME of us were able to get fingerprinted and moved on in the process...I guess they could see through your nasty attitude...hmmm maybe not. lol

It's just past my shoulders and I have been told different things as to what they expect your hair to be like. Any advise would be greatly appreciated!

I wouldn't stress over your hair too much! Before my interview I kept reading that you should wear it up. Despite that I ended up wearing mine down and curled, just pulled back so it wasn't all in my face. I'm about to do my medical so apparently that didn't stop them from hiring me :) There were other girls that got fingerprinted in my group that wore their hair down as well. Long story short, wear it how you feel comfortable!

I have a tattoo on my ankle as well, I work black tights to the interview so you could only see it if you were really looking for it. In the one on one interview she asked if I had any and I told her, she just asked if I knew I would have to have it covered for work. Didn't see to be a problem they just can't show while you're in uniform.

Hey everyone!

Had my f2f yesterday, and fortunately, I got a one-on-one interview and fingerprinted. Still holding my breath because I know nothing is certain just yet. I received my DOT forms today and I had a quick question if anyone could possibly answer this for me. Last month I had gotten a job at a new restaurant that was opening. About four days into training, before the opening, I had an opportunity to interview with another airline. Being as this is my dream, as with many of you as well, I decided to chase my dreams and take the interview, leaving my new job behind (telling them my decision to leave, of course). Now I know on the DOT forms they want all information of past employment within the last two years. Seeing as I was only in training for four days at my last job, do you think it would be necessary to list that employer?

OMYG how childish and immature. It is a wonder why you were not selected, I was not either but I move on and keep seeking. I just have to say the airlines are looking for those who can be professional at all times, mature people, not adult children. How cruel to wish somone on food stamps. People in general do not choose that. It is not something to make fun of , use as a butt in a joke etc or wish someone on.

You just need to grow up,

People just ignore him maybe he will go away if not enertained or responded to.

I would just to be on the safe side. It would be better for you to put it and them not really need the info than for you to NOT put it and it come up later, then it might look as if you're giving false information. If once you put it and they do question it tell them the scenario. But in MY opinion I think you should.

Personally I would not reschedule. Find a way to make that appointment time. It helps with seniority (you'll get pushed through faster.) rescheduling multiple times may indicate you are not flexible. I tend to be a little paranoid about things like this though.

Can you use sick or personal time?? Or find someone to cover a shift? Not sure what line of work you're in, but sounds like you'll be needing to put two weeks in soon anyway. Congratulations! I'm still waiting on my CJO!

Hey fly people,

I have been on this site reading everything and thankful for all the inspirational and motivational information. I've always been one to take the info I need I leave what I don't want and I will promise as much as possible not to repeat myself.

7/15 applied
7/18 received video invite
7/19 submitted video
7/25 received update for app
7/26 updated app
waiting pattern and reading all of your post. Hope to get a f2f soon but I had a serious question and I believe nobody asked b4
I may have a BG issue...I answered the app honestly, meaning the questions that were asked of me, but I had an incident in my past, long ago, I was moving from my apt. that I had a last rent due, wrote a check was a little short, and it bounced, mind you I had security money there 2,000. and left the place clean.
I moved to another city then the check bounced and the bank went out of business. I never found out about, then in 2009 I was picked up for it, I spent a couple of days in jail which was a horrible experience. I hired an atty who thought the entire situation was insane and had the entire thing thrown out. This was a long time ago back in 1999 and 2009 is when I knew and dealt with it, the questions asked was did I plead guilty for anything or have pretrial deferment or plead not guilty with insanity, I have done neither of these things, there was no place to put about this information, what are some constructive advice on what to do about it. Before anyone past judgment, I was never in any trouble b4 nor after, just requesting advice.

Also good luck to you all, Everything is happening very quickly and I expect to here about my f2f soon. I've always been very positive and know if it's meant for me I will receive it but you still worry, lol.

This is something I really want to do and I know I will enjoy it, just a little worried that I won't be able to support myself.

Thanks so much, Bailey25! I am very ecstatic! I took your advice and told the interviewer, on my one-on-one, about missing a few short-term jobs on my resume, which again, was totally unintentionally. I hope the rest of the stages goes smoothly. :)

I live in a state where minimum wage is 7.25 and most jobs pay close to that amount. and I just turned 21 and the highest paying job I had before this one was at Macys Distribution center making 11.70 and hour so this is a big upgrade for me so i am appreciative of how much I make and the fact that I will be able to make more in the coming years. Yes southwest and delta makes more 25-27 / hourly. But your right, being apart of the merger and the biggest airlines in the world outweighs the pay

I def understand how you feel. When I first got the job with the airline that I'm with now I had to break my lease because there was no way that I was going to be able to pay the rent when training wasnt paid, and training for my airline was only 4 weeks. To my understanding making more than 75 hours isnt hard because we will have the option (so im told) to pick up and drop trips. That basically means that if there is a trip out there that no one wants and it offers more hours than the trip that we currently have assigned then we can trade it out. You might even have the option to pick up short trips on some of your days off. Honestly it really depends on the base that you are placed in as well as your seniority. Because there may be a trip available in "Open Time" but if someone with more seniority wants to pick up the same trip you do, the it will automatically go to the other person. Its not IMPOSSIBLE to make ends meet, but dont expect to be eating Lobster and steak and drinking champagne. lol This month with my airline I'm currently at 95 hours and I still have another week or so until the month ends so I will make a pretty decent amount of money, not including my per diem, which roughly averages out at $400 ish a month (about 250ish hours).

yeah I feel you. I make decent money in this business and the GREAT thing is that every year you are pretty much guaranteed a raise. And its not a raise based on your performance its based on the contract. which is why you have so many people that stay with the industry for so many years. I've met so many FA's who have been doing it for 20+ years and they live VERY well. In addition to good pay they also have seniority which pretty much means they can Hand Pick where they want to go, how often they want to go, how long they stay there, and sometimes which aircraft they want. But coming in fresh out of training we will pretty much be at the mercy of crew scheduling for a while. Which isnt the end of the world, but all the really nice trips are probably gonna be snatched up by employees with more seniority. :)

no prob. No, I don't work for American. Im desperately trying to get on like everyone else. I do work for another airline though and my responses are ONLY based on my past and current experiences, for all I know none of what I say is true at all. But I'm fairly sure that it is. lol. Most airlines generally operate the same way with seniority and such. And I'm based in ATL. Been a FA for a year.

I do work for another airline though and my responses are ONLY based on my past and current experiences, for all I know none of what I say is true at all. But I'm fairly sure that it is. lol. Most airlines generally operate the same way with seniority and such. And I'm based in ATL. Been a FA for a year.

I live in Atlanta as well.... actually Cumming, Ga. which is north of Atlanta. I'm surprised that American doesn't have a hub here in Atl with it being such a huge airport.

Choua X in St. Paul, Minnesota said: Hey everyone!

Had my f2f yesterday, and fortunately, I got a one-on-one interview and fingerprinted. Still holding my breath because I know nothing is certain just yet. I received my DOT forms today and I had a quick question if anyone could possibly answer this for me. Last month I had gotten a job at a new restaurant that was opening. About four days into training, before the opening, I had an opportunity to interview with another airline. Being as this is my dream, as with many of you as well, I decided to chase my dreams and take the interview, leaving my new job behind (telling them my decision to leave, of course). Now I know on the DOT forms they want all information of past employment within the last two years. Seeing as I was only in training for four days at my last job, do you think it would be necessary to list that employer?

Yes

I think the reason that they dont is because the ATL market is saturated with Delta. Hard to promote your business with Delta posters everywhere. :) I hear they are a great company to work for as well. they are supposedly doing some hiring within the next couple of month. So if this doesnt work out then....

I just tried to do the video interview on an IPad and FaceTime doesn't work, apparently you have to use a PC?
I can borrow my husband's when he gets home but I just wanted to get this behind me, Grrrr. : )
Thought maybe I could save someone else some aggravation.

Hey this is the website I'm on:

www.apfa.org/content/view/2350/988/

Its HUGE its 38 articles and some have like 10 pages...it tells you everything from what gets paid to what doesn't to how it does and whats expected of you. It's kind of hard to understand probably more for me since I am unfamiliar with airline language.

Just a heads up, that contract is only partially still in effect. Our work rules have changed through the restructuring and bankruptcy process.

That's what I thought but a lot of the things on there say effective as of October 1, 2012.

Yourself and dont over think the questions just answer
Honestly and you will be fine! The questions were general and very easy. They
Asked why you wanted to be a flight attendant, also asked
What excites you about moving to a new
City, and they will ask you to tell them about a time
When you had to deal with and upset customer and
How did you handle it and what was the outcome. Just
Make sure to talk slowly and smile :) thy give you
30 seconds to think about the question before
You answer it so you have plenty of time to gather your thoughts. Let me know how it goes and if
You have any other questions!! Best of luck to
You, you got this! :)

I don't remember if I ever thanked you for this information!! So thank you very very much. I'll be doing my video interview within the next few minutes and reading back at this post has calmed me down a bit with what to expect as far as questions and timing goes.

=D
