Genia,
Congratulations on passing the first interview!!! The second one will either be a group interview or your final one on one (which is a quick last interview) and your drug test. If you have to go through a group interview here are my suggestions: Be interested in everything that is said. Have excellent eye contact with everyone in the group. Smile, Smile, Smile. Don't always be the first to answer and don't always be the last. Be somewhere in the middle. Don't EVER put down another airline or past job. Always speak on the positive and what you have learned from all your work experiences. Be very sincere, humble, down to earth and approachable.
The questions they may ask in the group interview: Why do you want to work for United? Why do you want to be a flight attendant? When in your life did you have to be flexible? If you could meet anyone on a flight who would it be and why? What is your worst and best quality?
They key to all of these questions is being flexible, loving people, being an excellent problem solver, working well with others, and bettering yourself as a person. Incorporate all these things in your answers.
As far as training goes you don't have a thing to prepare for. Everything will be paid for and all training will be taught to you in the classroom. They key to being successful in training is to NEVER protray a negetive attitude, gossip about anyone-teachers or classmates, always look professional, have a bright attitude every day and study. Don't go out partying with the others at night. Stay focused on your job at hand. You will see others disappear from your class and sent home for the reasons I have mentioned above. If you follow these tips, you will be successful in training.
Let me know how it goes!
Bridgette

Bridgette Gilchrist in Wheeling, Illinois said: I have been a flight attendant for 16 years with American Airlines. I worked hard and prepared for my interview for months before applying. Every airline I interviewed for offered me the position. I have an article that will help you immensly with the process. It is on AssociatedContent.com After you log on to the sight there will be a section of articles on the left to choose from--click on the travel section. Once you have done that--about half way down on the right side of the page you will see a search. Just type in the title, "So you want to be a flight attendant", and the article will come right up for you. I think it will make a world of difference for anyone who wants the position but does not know alot about what is looked for and does not know how to interview well for the job.
I hope you all find it helpful

Hi Bridgette,
how r u?? My name is Fabio and I am from Italy ...I have lived in Sydney for 3 years and worked in fine dining restaurant s hotel..I was thinking to become a flight attendant but I need to ask some questions to someone who knows about the job..
which are the best airlines in the world?( don t wanna deal with italians, when on holidays they can be a pain in the ass!!)(I only have an italian passport).

Does your salary depends from which company I am working for??

Why would u reccomend me this job and why wouldn t you??( sorry, but since you did it for 16 years you are the only one who I can ask at the moment..)
Waiting for your reply I send you my kindest regards..
Thank u so much..

Fabio,
The best airlines in the world are Quantas, American, United, Southwest, Northwest, Delta and Continental.
The pro's used to outweigh the con's a long time ago.....In the good old days, but I'm afraid it's the other way around now.
First of all your customer service qualifications are perfect. If you want to travel for free and see the world and meet the most interesting people of your life time...it's all there in the flight attendant job. The con's are this: Your pay will be the same with any airline. You start out at 16,000 a year-a few thousand more a year if you are a designated speaker on a flight to a foreign country. (You have to have a few room mates to make the rent), you never have a long layover anywhere if you decide to fly domestically. It's dark when you arrive at the hotel and it's dark when you leave the next morning. You always have about an 8 hour layover...Over seas flying though you get 24 hours rest. You are on call usually for the first 5 years or more-so your social life is put on hold for a while. You can't plan anything in advance, you work all the holidays for the first 10 years and you have to deal with a few nasty passengers every flight. In my opinion though, when you are in customer service that's what to expect so I didn't find that part a really big deal. The airline industry is very tenious--you never know if you are going to be laid off--so you always have to have a plan B..another career to fall back on. I highly recommend you try to pursue corporate flying. You have to pay for your own training-about $2,800 U.S. dollars but you are flying on beautiful private jets, making twice the money and set your own schedule--they call you and you tell them if you are available to work. It's that simple. You charge $400.00 U.S. dollars a day. Your layovers are incredible and you don't work your butt off. Google corporate flight attendant training F.A.C.T.S. certification and the schools will come right up.

You do NOT want to be a flight attendant unless you don't mind losing your health, going without meals, and sleeping in disgusting hotels. This jobs requires you to work on your feet for 14 hrs for 4 and sometimes 5 days in a row. You must fly 'reserve' for at least the first year - on call - and will sometimes not see home for 2 weeks. Airplanes are breeding grounds for bacterias and viruses, not to mention the sick passengers. I am writing this from my hospital bed hooked up to IVs. Already had vein surgery, sinus surgery and suffered serious injuries to my hands. I now have an infection that has spread into my bones and is non-responsive to antibiotics. All this I got from the filthy airplanes. The airline says, oh too bad, used up your sick time again, you'll be off for a couple of months Without Pay and we'll see you when you're recovered! By the way, my hospital roomie is a flight attendant from another airline with a huge bacterial infection. PLEASE reconsider your desire to be an FA. Did you know that more FAs are injured on the job than construction workers? And, we aren't even covered by OSHA. Flight crews are governed by the Railway Labor Act so we aren't entitled to breaks, etc. Like to work 14 hrs with NO BREAKS. Crew rest minimums are 8 hours on the ground and more and more often that is all we get. 8 hours to deplane your passengers, get to your hotel, find something to eat, etc. When all is said and done - you get about 5 hrs sleep before your next 14 hr duty. Oh yeah, the pay is great too. You start at about $17,000 yr and after 5 yrs make about $20,000. Are you SURE you want to do this? FA careers are not at all like they used to be.

Jacob in Brooklyn, New York said: Hey genia i am scheduled for a untited interview in 2 weeks can you please help me out with the interview questions and process thanks!!!

Jacob,

The first interview is with Spherion. They're just easy questions. "Tell me using your past job history how you handled a disgruntled customer", etc. They have you
stand up and read a paper like you're reading it to the passengers on how to replace your trays and seats in the upright position.

The infomation that is given on this forum is extremely helpful. SMILE and dress for success.

Remember, you are being watched at all times once you enter the building!

Good Luck. Let me know how it goes!

I would have been so lost without your help. I finished my second interview and your answers prepared me so much.

The group interview was fairly easy. The one on one interview was questions just like you said. They asked me how I would handle a drunk passenger and questions about different cultures. I feel very confident. I should know in about one week.

Thanks again. If I ever meet you. . .I owe you one!

Hi Rachele,
I have heard that a good set of teeth, good skin, and no glasses were important in the Philipines. I have no experience with airlines other than the ones in the U.S.A. Over here the most important qualification is your ability to protray compassion, dedication, flexiblitiy in your schedule, neat grooming, and a genuineness about you--not how beautiful you are. So, to answer your question about your teeth--I would go to the interview and not worry about something you can't change.
Questions they will ask you are why you want to be a flight attendant, what qualities do you have that will make you a great flight attendant, are you willing to move and fly anywhere at anytime, what past jobs have you had that have involved costumer service and how have they helped in preparing you for a position as a F/A, what are your worst and best qualities. Read my article on www.associatedcontent.com and you will find a section of catagories on the left. Click on travel and then scroll down to middle of page to a search box on right. Type in "So you want to be a flight attendant" and my article on how to prepare yourself for the interview will pop right up. Good luck to you!
God Bless,
Bridgette

i work for a regional airline in the states flying 50-90 seat jets and prop planes. i caught a bacterial fungal sinus infection in january 07 that did not respond to antibiotics and the infection progressed into the bones of my face. this started with a sinus infection - very common among flight attendants.

Genia,
The fact that you proceeded to the 2nd interview with United was great. It shows you had something about you in the first interview they liked. When I first started applying for the F/A position I applied everywhere. Mail your resume out to Northwest and Continental, Southwest and Delta. US Air as well. See what happens. The more you interview, the more you know what to expect and the better you can answer their questions. Just because United didn't hire you doesn't mean another major airline won't.
Let me know what happens.
God's blessings!!

Because I am already 31 and it takes about 1-2 years to get my teeth aligned. Do you think any airlines would accept someone n the age of 33 to be a flight attendant? Thanks before for the response.

the regional "connection" airlines are Always hiring. the turnover is huge and they will hire anybody with two arms and legs and h.s. diploma - no other experience needed. anybody can be an FA if they are willing to work 14 hr days in a confined area with no breaks and little sleep. i strongly suggest you take a look at www.welcomeaboardtoxicairlines before taking the leap into a career that will surely destroy your health both short and long tem.

a good site to check out is www.aviationinterviews.com so you can read about others interview experiences with different airlines. there are numerous articles online about flight attendant interviewing as well as many books and all that reading should be done before your interview. the age of applicants does not matter. those over 40 and 50 yrs are usually hired quickly as they are more dependable and not encumbered by child care or other family issues and can be away for long periods of time. i still DO NOT recommend this as a career for anybody that values their health. good luck to you.

not being fluent in english would be a problem if you were applying to a US airline flying only domestic routes. International airlines in the US are currently only hiring those that speak 2 or more languages fluently. most airlines have their own website with a section called 'careers' that will tell you their requirements for hiring.

check out www.aviationinterviews.com and read about other flight attendant's interviews with different airlines. you should also read up on the health risks involved with this occupation. there are 5 flight attendants from 3 different airlines living in my neighborhood. currently, 4 of us are on extended medical leaves for various injuries and illnesses including yours truly. 3 of us will never be well enough to fly again and 2 will never be able to work again at all and will have to live on meager disability checks of less than $1,000 per mo. the airlines are looking for people like you to replace us - until you become one of us, and then you will also be replaced. get all the facts before jumping into this job.

ATL FA in Atlanta, Georgia

I was age 50 when hired to be a flight attendant and almost 6 yrs later I am still flying. When I went for my interview I asked "am I too old?" and the airline said "not at all, we prefer to hire empty nesters." We seem to be more reliable, don't have child care issues, aren't likely to want maternity leave, or miss work because we were out partying with friends. Keep in mind that the job is HARD and you will be away from home A LOT not to mention the risks to your health. Many of us have become ill from various viral and bacterial infections and some have had serious accidents such as broken ankles and wrists. The pay is very very bad (you can earn more working at your local supermarket). Please read www.welcomeaboardtoxicairlines.com before choosing this as a career. good luck

Hello, I am from Atlanta area too. I would like to get a FA job in the next few months, I would like to fly Delta/International. But Delta does not hire... Would you think
I would have better chances to get a job with regional ASA and
then somehow get placed/transferred to Delta ??? Or should I start to apply at Airtran which has better planes/pay but they
don't fly outside the USA.Any suggestions from anyone?
Thank you !!!

Delta IS hiring bilingual fa's. ASA is ALWAYS hiring fa's and they DO fly international but not europe or asia. However, ASA is a Delta Connection carrier so you get the same travel freebies on Delta as their employees you just don't get paid as much, not even close.

Times have changed. Just about anybody can get an fa job at a regional now that the requirements are so relaxed. The work is hard, the pay is bad, and turnover is huge. Unfortunately, you cannot get placed/transferred with any airline from any airline. Each time you change airlines, you start at the bottom again.

I guess you already checked out www.welcomeaboardtoxicairlines.com and decided to take the chance at flying anyway. Be prepared to see home only 8 to 10 days a month your first year and get used to living out of a suitcase. All the airlines are cutting corners so get used to long days up to 14 hrs, missing meals and staying in cheap mildewy hotels.

I have been an fa for several years and had my fair share of sinus infections, catching passengers colds, injuries and being vomited upon. A lot of my meagerly salary went to paying doctors to keep me well enough to keep working. Unfortunately, my last illness has kept me housebound on IV medication for the last few months and I may not be able to fly again for a long time, or worse I may never be able to work any job again.

This is a huge price to pay just to wear those wings. Are you really sure you want to try this?

I hope you get to feel better!!! Still, I feel strong and I am a risk taker...I've been through a lot in my life and I believe in myself. I also have a great family and I am not along - there are people that can support me in difficult times.I work and serve about 700 weekly customers now, so I could get sick even here, on land.

Tanya,
You need to know that the airline industry is not the way is was 15 years ago. They are all financially strapped and you are going to make peanuts for a long time. I flew for 16 years at American and was making 30,000 a year when I retired. There will never be a change of going back to the good old days of flying.....In other words, it will take you a good 10 years to make in the upper 20's. It doesn't matter how willing you are to make a change in location etc..There are so many people out there wanting the job and will take almost nothing in pay to "see the world for free" that I would think twice about quitting my bank job. You work very hard and long days now and being on call gets really old, fast. I loved my job for a long time, but it's not the same job anymore, you don't see the sights anymore...You go to work in the dark very early in the morning and you get to your hotel in the dark-very late at night. The days of enjoying a dinner out and sight seeing are over. Just think about it before you pursue flying. You will make a ton more money flying corporate private jets instead of commercial and the layovers are amazing. Try looking at Above and Beyond flight attendant training. They will certify you for around 3,000 dollars but you will be making between 400 and 500 dollars a day and live the life of the rich and famous...Just something more to think about.
Best regards,
Bridgette

dear tanya, you got some good advice and i would just like to reinforce it. i've been a flight attendant for just over 8 years and i don't make $25,000 yet. i was encouraged by my neighbor who has been flying over 35 yrs. even she has been forced to fly more days lately because of how the industry has changed. the difference is she has so much seniority that she gets to pick what days she flies and to where and makes almost $60,000 yr. nobody can achieve that in todays world.
