its a trick question but i think if you answer D...you still have may believe that tattoo is acceptable and it is NOT. According to the work packet, FAs can not have tattoo(s) or body art visible.

Answer is first officer. Flight engineer is navigator, and is used on larger aircraft...At least, they used to use them, when configuration on flight deck had a third seat behind Captain and first officer.

Ladies,
After some research, I understand you all (accepted to training) were asked to get up and had 60 seconds to say why you would make a good flight attendant.
Was this in front of the 300 people that were there? Would any of you be so kind as to provide examples?
Any advice helpful and congrats to you that were asked to training!!!

Yes, you do get up in front of everyone and introduce youself & this is THE time to promote YOU. It's actually fun. You'll be surprised how easy it really is to do. Everyone is in the same boat, and most are very supportive.

The best advice is "Be yourself!" You don't need or want to memorize what others said. (It's YOUR interview after all.) Be yourself. Be original. Honest and genuine goes a long ways, and is by far the best advice anyone can give you. Good luck!

Helpful in Park City, Utah said: No as a reserve you can't drop or pick up trips. As a line holder you can, but at the moment we are short staffed so it is impossible. When we have sufficient staffing it's pretty easy.. But if you need that flexibility it won't happen on reserve. it's a great job though if you can get through reserve

I'm going to have to correct this response. YES, you can pick up trips on RSV. As long as it's your OFF days and it doesn't interfer with the 7/24 hour rule.

Good Luck~RSV isn't bad at Skywest. I was on RSV for 1.5 years.

I was wanting to ask you guys about the health insurance. Do the plans differ because one covers differently than the other and is the dental included or how much is that also? THank you. Do you know if the Sept and Oct training classes are all they are holding this fall and what bases they might be looking at for coverage? Appreciate any help. If a person from out of state goes to interview and has plane to catch, do they try to get to some of those people first?

you first have to get up in front of everyone and tel them why you'd be a good flight attendant--don't say what everyone else is saying such as i love to travel--just be original and try to make it different so you stand out. if you get chosen to go on then you'll get a f2f interview. there they go over your qualifications, and more of why you want to be a flight attendant. they will also give you scenerios of things that can happen if you were a flight attendant and how you'd handle it. then if they like you and you have the job they'll email you back telling you..thats how it was for me i went to the july 29th interview in salt lake and heard back about a week later hope this helps

Hi Ivy, I'm headed to the DEN OH too. I worked as a FA for SkyWest several years ago and hope to get back on with them. They are a wonderful company and everyone is very nice and supportive at the interview. If you have any questions let me know and I'll try to answer them. Good luck to everyone headed to training!

LAtruebie, hope you do great in Denver. What was good and bad with working there and did you work as FA somewhere else, as well? Seems like they are very stable and consistent with their business, which is a good sign. I ahve a question, if a person flies in from out of state and they start with many, many people, do they try to see folks from out of state that may have to catch a plane, or what do you think regarding that ? Also, do you think the salary is enough to live on? Thank you.

How awesome SkyWest is holding another open house, this one in Denver! Wonder if this means Denver is short. Hoping for SLC as a base. but will be happy no matter I end up! My training date has been changed from Sept class to Aug class! Yay! Studying, studying, studying! And working out! Want to be able to "fly" through the agility test!

Honestly I can't say very much negative about the company. Everyone I worked with on flights and in corporate was wonderful. They are a stable company and I believe one of the best regional airlines around. As far as the interviews go they don't look at who is from out of state or local. If your flying in for the interview you should probably plan on staying overnight because they can go late.

Ivy - When I interviewed we each had so much time to introduce ourselves to the group and tell why we thought we'd make an excellent FA. Afterward they had us all break. When we returned they had posted a list of who they would like to continue the process with. The questions were varied scenarios and why we wanted to be a FA. My best advice is be yourself.

Jen - That would be fun to meet up with you and Ivy at the OH. Let me know when you're flying into DEN.
