this is a big joke! i was stucked in LAS on the 12th when they emailed me for the 13th/14th 2nd interview. I spend too much already going there and going back there for the 2nd time would be a huge mistake, not to mention another 3rd interview. If they say they want to be NO 1 airline, they should be considerate to their applicants. Its like a scam, we have to pay first then found out we have to shell out more money and get no guarantee. obviously this is only for the natives from the island and people who have the time, money and logic to take it (just being sarcastic) they're treating applicants like crap. Other airlines, give u positive seat to fly on their interview, give u at least daily allowance and pay for ur accommodation, they're not even NO.1 but surely they are more considerate and have empathy. Goodluck to u guys! whoever make it!

It is important to realise that Hawaiian is quite different from other airlines (Southwest, Delta, United, Air Tran, JetBlue) who have nationwide networks and multiple crew bases. As a side note, I don't think Southwest, JetBlue or Air Tran would fly me from Hawai'i to their interviews, and I wouldn't expect them to.

HA only serves a few mainland cities and it would be prohibitively expensive for them to fly people in to HNL from all over the country plus they have little incentive to do that for a few reasons:

1. HA essentially has 1 base for new hires (HNL) which is 2,500 miles away from the rest of the country, and impossible to commute to when on reserve.
2. HNL is very expensive to live in or move to.
3. There are 1 million people in Hawai'i, many of whom need jobs, including over 400 former Aloha F/As who I would guess are going to be the majority of HA new hires for the next few years.

Until the supply of well qualified applicants in Hawai'i dries up, HA will nto be providing transportation to HNL for interviews.

Will JetBlue, AirTran and Southwest buy me last minute $1,000 tickets on another airline to fly from HAWAII (which they don't serve) to their hub for interviews?? The answer is no, they all told me that I would ahve to get myself to a city they serve.

I know United, Delta and Continental, etc will fly people to their hub for interviews, but they are nationwide with multiple hubs and crew bases, HA is not.

When HA hired for their LA base in the late 1990s they held the interviews in LA. Airlines are under no obligation to make it easy for you to get a job, and like I said before, they have more than enough qualified applicants in Hawaii.

if the major airlines did what HA does then they would only have locals from their major base SWA would be people living in DFW area, JB would be the NY area...etc. Lucky those airlines have bases around the country and that is why they fly you to the interviews and put you up during training. Now if you want to fly for most charters like Omni Air and Ryan International then they only hire where there is a base because your physical address has to be within 2hours of that particular airport. how do i know this? it is because i applied with them before and i did not want to relocate, at my expense to those cities where they wanted us to be.

I've heard from HA fa's last time they hired was 2 yrs ago. Most of them are in their 50's already. They bought new planes so they need more FAs. They only have 2 bases, LAX and HNL. LAX is only mainly for seniors so most of them are based in HNL. So, u have to be natives from the island or reside there for good which is really REALLY expensive. Whether you're qualified or not, as long as u can pay for it, u can work there. Most applicants came from mainland so sorry for us! but the good news, there are other airlines hiring: skywest, air wisconsin, i've heard jetblue is hiring soon! let the hunt begins!

mahalo!

yes it is a huge pay cut but money isn't everything in life. a dream and to be happy would be happy than all the money in the world and miserable. yes i am american...aren't the people in hawaii american too? if you mean caucasian....yes i am.

I just checked out Aer Lingus's website...they weren't hiring per their website. But, I guess they were recently?

I saw some cheap places on craigslist in HNL where you don't have to get a crashpad but a real place.

Don't have to worry, it's possible to survive somehow somewhere in HNL! My budget of food was $1000/m but it's $200/m for two ppl since last year! I really want to get this job for HA after I met some great HA's HRs.
My interview will be today.................anybody?

It sounds like I got the same email. I got two emails a little after 4:00 a.m. (EST)...so a little after 10:00 p.m. (HNL time)...the first one invited me to the next round of interviews and to select a date and time (when I attempted to do that, it was closed to me)...then, a few minutes later, I got an email stating it was a pleasure meeting me in person and the decision was difficult, etc. (sounds like the email you got). The first email was "system driven" and the second one was not (and the second one was the one where it was nice to meet me). I also did not attend because it was clear that all things being equal (and the job hurdle for FAs being so low in the education department), someone with already existing Hawaii roots would be selected (very very few people with no already existing Hawaiian roots are selected historically).

i didnt make it pass round 2. I was a fa for 15 yrs. Ha would be a good airline to fly for. They do need to revamp their interview process!!! People came from the mainland. You cant expect people to hang around while you figure out how this is going to work. Missing work hotel and travel cost and now you say 4 interviews and they are not all back to back?good luck to the people left! Fly safe

Wow...now four interviews instead of 3!? Hilarious...sounds like the process for becoming a judge!...surprised you were not selected...you have experience, you live in Hawaii....did you fly for another airline in Hawaii (it sounds like their ideal candidate would have been a former Aloha Airlines FA)?

I think the current C.A. label was the issue. All things being equal, they have made it abundantly clear they prefer current, existing addresses in Hawaii. One can hardly blame them I guess.

I live in California, I did the second group interview yesterday evening, took the red eye back to California, and got back 2 hours ago from Hawaii. The moment I stepped off the plane, I checked my email, I got an invite to do the panel interview!!!!! So stoked. So I'm gonna take a quick nap and fly back to Honolulu this evening in time for my panel tomorrow afternoon.

Hi all, I got an email saying I was not chosen for the third interview and then one after it saying I was. Confused. Did anyone else receive a rejection and then an apparent invitation? Did your acceptance e-mail give you a time or did you have to click on link? Mine said to click and then wasn't available. I did have my 2nd interview yesterday.

Then HR system sent me 5 emails with separate links to schedule the Panel Interview. I hope that helps!

Good luck 70417. As the email said, WE ARE SO CLOSE! To those that were asking, yes, I'm currently a flight attendant so that's making a HUUUUGE difference versus paying for a full fare ticket. Hoping and praying I'll make it all the way to training. Good luck to everyone else.

Dom-

Take a leave from your airline if you can so you don't have to quit. I quit an airline after 2 years to go fly for one of the big guys where I was let go on probation getting a check-in time mixed up. I'm now back at the airline I quit from but with way less seniority/pay and am currently furloughed. I'd have over 6 years if I had stayed. Just something to think about. From a former HA F/A I spoke with, it sounds like Hawaiian's probation can be pretty tough to pass.

oh trust hawaiian air has the worst service ever! from the check in agents to their flight attendants. The problem is they care so much for their rank in safety and time but neglect the quality of their service. I have to fly with them since they are the only ones that fly to my country and they monopolize on the route by charging us $1200 roundtrip for a five hour flight and then their flight attendants are very cold. I'm thinking okay if we are paying that much for a plane ticket, they should be kissing the ground we walk on and make our money worth it.

There were only 6 caucasion people in the entire 90 people I saw on the second interview, I wonder if any of them got picked, I'm not saying they only hire a certain "look" but it seemed obvious they cared more about the "look" than experience and knowledge, and you are right josie the flight attendants on Hawaiian can be very cold and a little arrogant acting, it seems that Hawaiian needs to represent the melting pot that it is. I was really glad however to see so many guys- that is great!
