I recently interview with continental, and thought my interview went really well, but heard that I did not get it. Is it worth doing it again with them, or go to another airline? I did not wear a suit, like some have posted and I'm not tall, and wonder if the way you speak is that important. Silly questions, but I wonder why they did not call me back. What do you think is important to them? thanks

please do answer me. ive been dreaming to be an attendant. i weigh 49kls, i know im 5'2" but when i tried to apply for FA and they have me screened,they told me that im just flat 5ft. they didn't bother to interview me in Gulf Air. the first thing they did is check my resume and then weigh me and get my height in cm. told me that they'll call me but i didn't get a call from them. i have a background for customer service in 3yrs, got college level. im pretty, flawless, my face is perfect cause i did a commercial for facial soap before but the only thing that bothers me is my teeth. oh its really embarassing to ask this guys. hope uve gotta answer me asap. thanks

Just make sure you floss them after having a spinach salad and smile, that's all !
C'mmon peeps do you really think that airlines recruiters are focused on your teeth????
They want to see your personality, your attitude, how friendly and polite you are, and yes if you have canine teeth like Dracula maybe they'll think twice, otherwise go with the flow and forget about your teeth.
Don't stress over silly stuff, make an outstanding resume, dress conservative and give your best shot, that's all !

Bonjour and Greetings!
(Speaking from 4 different F/A interviews and experienced I have had)

If you are interested and willing to work as a F/A, do your own job. Take initiative people, meaning go online hunting job for F/A career opportunities. I'm sure it will not take a while and not t0o hard to just type down "Fight attendant career opportunities". Then, Google as many Airlines as you are interested in as long as you are aware of the Airline's "requirements" because some do prefer living in their homeland. You will probably do a lot of research and browsing. Then send your well written resume and cover letter. After, applying: the human resources will email you back for a "thank you" and will notify you when can they will give you a call. Although mostly, Airlines scan and go through details of your application at first.
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE! Sadly, I didn't get the medical exam in my previous interview from Cathay Pacific. But I'm quite glad with all the interview achievements I've been through. It's a learning process and more aware what to expect.

Host said: What are the top 3 traits or skills every flight attendant must have to excel?

Can you suggest any tips or insights to develop your flight attendant expertise?

I just was given a conditional offer of employment by Delta after an interview in Atlanta. Top 3 things I would suggest:

1. Be friendly - I don't be obnoxious. I mean genuinely friendly. Hold doors for people. Offer to get people a drink. Converse with people. Smile.

2. Nail your interview - A large part of the interview will consist of situational questions such as, "Tell us about a time in your past work experience where you came up with a creative solution to a problem." or "Tell us about a time where you went above and beyond your job description." They will give you some help and let you know beforehand to answer question via the STAR method. STAR = Situation, Task, Action, Result. Don't forget the Result. That's the most important. It's all well and good to tell them you came up with a creative solution to a problem, but what they want you to tell them is how it turned out. Did the action you took actually benefit the company? If so, this a huge selling point to leave out. If not, talking about why it didn't produce a great result shows that you think critically.

3. Be honest/sincere - I assure you I've been in trouble in the past. Alcohol in college, drove on a suspended license, even a trespassing charge. I got fired from a job for a cash shortage. I still got the job offer. There's not much point in lying about anything cause the FBI will find out if they hire you. List EVERY speeding ticket and every job. They will find it out. This isn't mcdonald's it's the FBI. As far as sincere, you should want this job because you really want it. It's a lot of work to start out at 20k/year. If it's not a labor of love you really should look for something else. This applies to being kind to. If you don't like people this isn't for you.

Good Luck

An addendum after reading the other posts:

Dress professionally. They aren't looking for bikini models. They're looking for people who are well groomed and carry themselves in a professional manner. If you're missing your front teeth, maybe that would be a problem, but these posts obsessing about appearances are really missing the point IMHO. Buy a nice suit whether you're male or female. I'm male so i shaved off all my facial hair and took out my earrings and nose ring.

Hi,
I'm just turning 17 and I'm finishing my junior year in highschool. I've wanted to be a flight attendant since I was little, and I've been flying alone since I was 6 years old. I beleive I have the skills and personality, and looks to become a flight attendant, but would anyone care to give me advice on how to get on that road? I know I can do it, I just need to know how to start. Thanks for any help.

Michele in Manama, Bahrain said: You need to be able to carry yourself with an air of total calm & control at all times. This doesn't mean being an ice princess, but being able to keep your emotions & feelings under control at all times. This can be done with a smile & of course the tone of your voice. I am 26years old have been flying now for over 6 yrs in commercial, charter & VIP charter flying. There will be days when you will love your job & days where the loneliness, passengers and not to mention your work colleques, may just seem too much. Passengers can be wonderful people & at other times total monsters. During all these times you need to keep an almost oscar winning performance of calmness & understanding. Be compassionate, but remember you are also a human doing a sometimes inhumane job. Don't let anyone treat you otherwise. If they do, make it know, but do it with a smile and an air of sofistication. That way you will never be accused of being rude. I have also been faced with a few emergencies in my time. From engine fires & hydrolic failure, to cracked windscreens & dying passengers. Keeping my composure has always helped both my passengers & myself in keeping a cool head & doing my job 100%. These qualities have helped me to enjoy every aspect of being a flight attendant & have helped me gain a name in my short time in this industry as a professional. This in turn has given me the chance to enter into promotions & jobs ahead of my age & experience. I have been flying with ladies who have been in this career for over 45years & if there is one bit of wisdom they have given me that I can share with you it's this. Make the most of this job, remember to make time for yourself, friends & family & above all wear the uniform with pride, sofistication, intelligence & class. What other job requires you to be a care giver, nurse, firefighter, waitress, barman, cook, mother, wife, sister, public relations officer, marketing rep, negotiator and beauty queen

ATL FA in Marietta, Georgia

85 months ago

I work for a regional airline with no height restrictions. I can't speak for other airlines although I believe you must be able to reach to a certain height. Many airlines have their requirements posted on their website.
In my opinion, wanting to travel is not a good reason to take an fa job. You will not get enough time off the first year to go anyplace. The pay is so poor that you won't be able to afford a room or meals when you travel. Employee travel is stand-by (space available) and we all know that just about every plane is full so you have to be extremely flexible with your plans. This includes not being able to arrange a rental car or hotel in advance because you can't be sure when you'll get there.

You can probably make twice the money in a conventional job and just put some of it aside for travel. You can get some great deals online. From my experience, happy fa's are those that do the job because they love to fly and have other sources of income. With a regional airline you can expect to earn about $14,000 your first year and work (work Hard) up to about $25,000 yr in 5 years. I work for an airline and don't even use the flight benefits! I want to know I'll get where I want to go and more importantly - get back again. I grab last minute deals online and the cost is well worth it. Another considertation is your health. I repeat this over and over and over. This job is bad news for your health. Fa's have more injuries than construction workers and they are plagued with viruses and bacterial infections caused by the environment in which they work. Even off the plane is hazardous. Cost cutting has made overnight trips loathsome. Many stays are in decaying hotels with bugs, germs, faulty air systems and the like are not for the faint of heart. Unless flying is really in your blood you won't be happy. Heaven help you if it is -you also won't be happy. Once bitten by the flying bug it's hard to escape.
My office looks like an a/c museum.

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

Sincerely,

Hi everyone,
I'm currently working on my PhD and I'm working with an airline company to develop a realistic job preview. I've read lots of positive aspects of being a flight attendant, but I have also read lots of negative aspects of the job. I was wondering if there are any current flight attendants reading this that would be able to help give me some insight into how you cope with those negative aspects. Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!

NEVER EVER attend a school to become a flight attendant. All the airlines have their own training school and they pay YOU to attend. Most airlines prefer NO previous FA experience so they can train you THEIR way.

Before considering this career (job). Please, please, please read all you can on the effects to your health in this occupation! This is a high risk job, long hours and very very little pay.

Thanks for information about the school!!! If you have any other informations and feeling about FA pleaaase share with me before I am gonna start take action in that field. Than you sooo much

ATL FA in Marietta, Georgia

84 months ago

I've been an FA for about 10 yrs. I was constantly catching viruses and infections from both the passengers, the aircraft and the hotel rooms. Most of us get 1 or 2 sinus infections a year. It's pretty miserable flying with a sinus infection.

My last one was so bad it spread to the bones in my face and I had water pressure on the brain. I went into septic shock and had a heart attack in the hospital. The infection had caused damage to my lungs and heart.

I know several FA's that are on disability for more than a year now because of different infections. This is serious, please read up on it.

FA's are NOT well paid. You start at about $14,000/yr and $24,000 after five years and around $30,000 at ten yrs. You Must have a second source of income to live decent.

The first year or so you are on 'reserve' and you will be working all the time and hardly ever see home. It is hard work and a big sacrifice for such little pay.

It's not a job - it's a lifestyle and not for the faint of heart. This 'job' has changed dramatically from a decade ago. The high paid FAs with lots of days off are the ones that fly for major airlines and have been doing it for at least 25 years.

All I can tell you is what my doctor told me. Wash your hands and use antibacterial solutions as much as possible, get plenty of rest, and eat healthy to keep your immune system strong. But, until you can hold your breath for an entire flight, you will always be at risk. Bottom line, if your desire to be a flight attendant is stronger than your desire to stay healthy then it is your choice. It's a gamble. Some FA's never get seriously ill and others do. Are you a gambler? Personally, I believe the poverty pay and long hours are not worth it.

Hi Anne,
I just took the lang test. It is conducted over the phone, well at least the initial test is. I have no knowledge about other tests, I think there are written ones as well, if you pass the oral. It was very fast paced and they asked questions about all different topics. One question was about why people decide to be vegetarians. Also, do you like to garden and why? It was so random (in my opinion). Good luck.

This is a typical filipino trait. I cannot believe that they actually require "good teeth" and "clear skin" to be a flight attendant. Although I posses both traits, I still find this mentally rather stupid. I am a filipina and I am so sick of how everyone back in the country are so narrow minded and superficial. My boyfriend just laughed when he saw that silly requirement. Maybe if people over there stopped being shallow and narrow minded, then we could probably shave off some of the dirt that's coating our culture.

Wow, thanks for your insight. I am sorry that you were so sick. That does not sound fun at all. I hope you are well now.

Just a quick note to those who are interested in this career...keep in mind that this is one persons experience. If someone you do not know ruined your dreams, than maybe it was not one worth pursuing.

Also, the reserve thing...is different for each airline. Much more tolerable with Delta.

hi patty, good luck with ASA. i'm one of hundreds of fa's that bailed that company after several years with no contract and too much abuse. the fa's are leaving faster than they can be replaced which has caused many flights to be cancelled. those that remain are working more flights than ever to pick up the slack. i hope you have a fat savings acct because you won't make much $ the first 5 yrs or so. trust nobody - not the union reps, supervisors and even many co-workers. keep yr comments to yrself and you'll be fine.

my neighbor avoided catching what we now call 'aircraft plague' for over 25 yrs! her infection spread to her heart and she's on a donor list now. it is not 'dumb' to warn others of a potential risk.
