Was going to try to attend the new open house posted at the company web site. I will be traveling into the city that day and asked my job to have off that 18th till the 20th. If hired, would that give me enough time to do everything they might ask me to do for the hiring prosses that weekend? So happy they have another open house. I missed the last. I hope they dont cancel cause im flying in that friday the 17th to try to make the open house...but it still says TBA? Oh well....good luck everyone

I was @ the last open house in ORD I flew in on the 2nd and attended the 1st session on the 3rd. I booked my hotel until the 6th.. They do not do F2F the same day. If u read a couple pages back ppl have wrote what the sessions r like. Personally I say that every1 that wants to attend stay for at least 5 days if they schedule u for a f2f a certain day take it don't make them work around u. I seen a lot of ppl that flew in for 1 day and were offered the f2f and couldn't make it back on time and then ended up getting cut. I did not end up leaving ORD until the 6th. I also recommend that ppl that r flying in to rent a car because they do not assist ppl in getting to and from the drug testing site. Hope this helps good luck!

Just wanted to know how long before you receive your study guide via email I got hired and its been 1 wk and have not received it yet and I am nervous because class start on the 22may.

I'm also in the May 22nd class I've been checking my emails like crazy and even SPAM.. Some1 from Spirit said on here that they send out training packets a week before training starts.. So hopefully Wednesday we get the packet.. I made my flash cards of all their destinations and have been testing myself all week.

Plan to stay 3-4 days depending on the size of the open house/how many they select to continue to 2nd interviews/how many they hire. The first round is a group interview, 2nd is a personal interview. If you are selected, they will do your finger prints there and give you a basic info packet. You will have to go to the drug testing facility. And they do not provide transportation. I'm not sure where it is in relation to where they are doing interviews, but generally there are atleast a few people there with cars, so you should be able to carpool.

For those who have recently attended an OH, especially the last one in ORD and were there for 5-6 days, can someone share how to minimize costs associated with an almost week-long stay in Chicago? As much as I would like to be a ORD-based F/A for Spirit, I'm not able to afford a one-way flight, possible 5-6 nights in a hotel, and then another one-way return flight home. In addition, there are expenses incurred for food, and possibly cabs or rental car. I looked at a hostel, but was advised not to pursue this route. Seems the last OH was not airport-adjacent nor did it appear to offer a shuttle.
Any suggestions?

I used my hotel points.. I flew 1 way on Spirit and then i non reved to go home about 4 days after the whole process was over.. And rented a car for 3 days it was $60.. I took a taxi to the 1st open house but cost me about $50 in 1 day to drop me off and pick me up.. So I rented the car as soon as I was offered to go back for the F2F. I would wait to book a hotel until they post the location of the open house.. They had the last open house for ORD about 25mins away from the hotel that the Open House was held at. The drug testing facility is also near the airport. Honestly it's something you should really think about since your worried about saving $$ just to attend the open house because during training your not paid until you graduate. The whole interview process your basically on your own when it comes to getting to the open house and I guess it shows the recruiters who is willing to do whatever it takes to get the job. Hope this kind of helps you

NEWS FLASH: ORD

There are a total of 15 lines...only 4 (four) hard lines... The other eleven are reserve lines!
Nineteen (19) ppl have transferred to the base...only 12 will get lines. OUCH!

July should be more lines...hopefully.

As I said before, the base will be small.

Thanks, it did help. I had thought I would stay the first night at the hotel where the interview is held if there was an available room, and then go to one where I could use points for the remainder of the stay. Checking out car rentals for the best deal, and figured like you, taxi on day one, I agree with you that Spirit tries to make it a challenge to weed out applicants who aren't serious, committed, and resourceful. Just looking for any ideas I had not thought of--Thanks again!

I am attending the OH this weekend if anyone would like to try and room with me that would be great also i will be driving down there so i can help shuttle people around! I am very nervous about this whole thing expectly since i support myself and cant really afford to miss any work.
Also i saw on the web site that you need to bring 2 forms of id and a social card a passport or a recipt I have the id and social but have not had a chance to get a passport yet do they not allow you to interview without one? At the republic and emirates OH i went to they said if you didnt have one it was fine but you had to have one by training is that ok?
I just wanted to thank everyone for answering all my questions its really made me feel welcome and a little less nervous about the interview!

You either have to have a receipt for a passport or the actual passport itself. If you don't have it, they will tell you to come back when you have one.

So im going to use the city bus and train for it will be the only way I could get to Chi-town for this open house. I keep checking to see if the TBA is replaced with the real location but so far nothing. Do any of you believe this open house will happen or is it just a way to gauge if any ppl are interested?. I've asked for the days off at work already(4) and hate to be out of this money for travel on train to Chi-town, hotel and food and all...God I hope this is true. If so I hope they change to the real location so I can get all my planning done. Anyone know anything?

Spirit does not send invitations to Open Houses. You just go! But make sure you have filled out the online application before the Open House.

somozamaria in Chicago, Illinois said: Coffee,
Please post more! I like reading your informative posts.

Thanks FA in CHI Town & Somazamaria for both your support. I'll try this one more time. So when you ORD people get here. No need to worry the first week, as far as any exams scheduled the first week, because there are none, They provide you ample time. Our first test is today (2nd week). The first week was a breeze in terms of what you need to complete.

Study your city codes and abbreviations before you get here. That way, you can get your 8 hours of sleep in. This girl I met is ahead by 3 assignments and gets her 10 hours of sleep a night.

For women, make sure your required shoes have no fabric or patent leather. And (to all) your suitcases are completely black with no trim, design. or patterns. You will be required to make those purchases here if they are not applroved.

As for the upcoming ORD open house, what was said, was that they did not have enough people accept the position to justify a class, so they need to recruit more people for it. Can I ask when your training date (ORD) begins?

Las Vegas "may" be holding an Open House in June too.

There are things that I do need to keep private, but know this. Spirit is very fair and accomodating to everyone here. If by chance, you are unable to complete training, due to an unusual/unforseen circumstance, they "may" & "might" allow you to reapply in 6 mos. and give you the opportunity to re-train all over. But this would be upon the discretion of management to decide. I'll leave it at that.

I have this feeling you guys won't be staying at the same hotel we're all staying at now. However, if you do, they offer complimentary transportation on Sundays at 1pm to Oakwood Plaza which I just found out about yesterday. There's a K-Mart, restaurants, Ross that you can do your shopping at. I don't think you guys will need to worry about it though.

Gotta go guys. Good Luck.

Hey - thanks for the insight. Tentatively, we were told 5/22 as the training date, with expectation of traveling prior to that based on flight loads to positive space.

For those of us that fp/bg last week, I know I havent heard good/bad yet. They did however say one week prior (puts us at tomorrow) to hear further info? I believe when I asked them prior to leaving, as I was one of the last to get fingerprinted that they had 50+ the next day's worth...

Keep checking their website, they are a growing airline so you never know where they might end up having a OH. They have had OH's in Dallas in the past.

Do you have a clean BG? I know from previous months, there have been folks who didn't pass BG and were never notified. Not to freak you out, but if it gets too close, try to call. If you can find a number

As far as I know I do.. I had a few speeding tickets and I put down everything.. I never received any phone calls from anyone asking about my background. They said we would get a call.

Good to hear from you! Man oh man, this is one time I wish I could have a do over! Maybe 6 months will go by pretty quick and I can try again.

For people going to the upcoming ORD OH, good luck! My guess, since they are only having open house on one day, that it will be a 3 day process if you make it through to the end.

Nothing at all. This was for the last class. I even called a number I found on paperwork and they gave me a fake ema to contact! I was freaking out. No one would help me or respond or at least give me reasoning. What else stunk was that according to people in that class, my name was called at role call. So after leaving my job and gearing up for training that's where I'm at now. Trying to figure out what really happened and find a job!

I feel for you. It seems by everything I have read on here, that people who have had similar traffic violations like you, that it was only a problem if you were not up front about it from the start. Are you trying for any of the other airlines? I know it is hard to not feel defeated but if you really want to be flying, you should keep trying.

Sky blue rose,
Your user name is pretty first off, and thanks for the encouragement! I do plan to continue to pursue being a flight attendant. I am fortunate to have already flown for 5 years previously for another company and it was unreal. I loved the job, I can honestly say I loved every bit of it, even when I was having bad days. I left because an opportunity arose that I felt I should take because I was young. However during that time I was dumb and didnt pay a traffic ticket and had my license revoked. I disclosed the details of my driving history on the app and made it through all the rounds. I left the job I took to leave my previous airline and at this point I've accepted that for some reason I never received my training packet or travel info. My record is spotless besides my driving record. I am somewhat disappointed that spirit didnt contact me but it is what it is. I really like Spirit so I bummed that I won't be flying for them, and good luck to all those who did get to go, I promise it will be a great experience for you.

There's really no advice to give, all the people that tell you step by step what happens is helpful but knowing what they are going to ask you doesn't get you the job, it's how you answer what they ask you. Just be confident and yourself and you'll be fine.
