Bay21 in Alexandria, Virginia said: Also do you think that most new hires will be sent to PHL out of training or could they also go to CLT or DCA?!

I can almost say majority of the 6 out of 8 classes are alllllll going to go to PHL. It's are junior base. and most of the new 330's are coming to Philly. DCA is out of the question. and CLT transfers have to go in first then new hires and we are only on 1997 for that lol

yea you can be a speaker and stay on reserve for a few months or for years.. just depends on the demand when they hire... and depends on if people are retiring in that language. keep in mind if you are a speaker.. you will only fly to those cities.. and you will sit majority of the time... you can pick up trips on your days off to other cities but that is it pretty much.

Does it mean anything that the posting says "trainee" FA? I'm pretty sure it didn't say trainee the last time it was up... Is there a difference?

Thanks so much wanderlust. I have a question. I just completed the application and submitted for it. It said on the application that it is not required to move to your base location, but it is recommended that we do since we will be reserve. My question is, do you think it will be easy to commute from Houston, Tx to the bases? and Im sure that you dont get flight benefits till about 90 days after training. Please help me out. thanks!!!

I definitely do not recommend commuting. I am still in my first year with this job and I couldn't even imagine not living in base. The flight attendants who do commute are the ones with a lot of seniority. They have high boarding priority when they fly standby to get to base when assigned a trip and are able to get to work more conveniently than new hires. Murphy's law was created for the airline industry. Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. Flights get delayed and cancelled all the time which could leave you stranded in Houston when you are supposed to be in base. You are on probation for the first 7 months when you are a new hire and being out of base on a "duty/on call" day will result in automatic termination. Overall, there is just so much unnecessary added stress when you are a commuter.

You start your flight benefits the day after you graduate from training.

So I probably wouldnt have a chance to get the job. I have a misdenmeanor and its not dui but just wondering if i even have a chance because of the canadian rules. should I even waste my time with trying to get a flight attendant job? Please no negative comments. I hate that I have this on my record and have been a flight attendant before.

Things happen. I don't judge.

I don't know all the rules about misdenmeanor's being on your record but I would still certainly apply. Be honest with them when they ask you about anything they find in your background check. I have a DUI on my record from college and I was honest with them. That's all they are looking for.

Apply! You have a chance of getting on if you take a shot and apply. If you don't, you get nowhere.

I am curious to get experienced perspectives/opinions on the following: Which airline is considered the best to work for as a Flight Attendant in the industry?
I seriously want to apply but not sure if I should pursue United or US Airways as they are hiring now or wait it out until Delta or American hire? These are the 4 that I have an interest in and I'm familiar enough with them from an outsiders view but really interested in knowing what the honest inside the industry viewpoint is. I really appreciate all responses.

I thought I read somewhere that they conduct a 10 year background check.... So maybe yours might be far enough back that they don't even look into it.

their application process is messed up. I filled out a application yesterday. I have been at my job for 20 years. When I went to submit it they would not let me. It kept saying you have a gap of more than 180 days of no employment. Then I got a email from them saying if I do not finish the app with 48 hours I lose my chance to apply. Well I went back and tried to send it 5 more times but no luck. Try again maybe you will have better luck than me.

It was a difficult app, esp. on the work history section. Be sure you use 4 digits for the year...if you don't it will give you the message you got.

You got a rejection already? The post just went up? Perhaps I am missing something? What do you mean it wasn't an app, just questions? Would you mind sharing, if that's ok? I don't want to be invasive just trying to fully understand. THX

My advice is to apply everywhere. Just consider the fact that you may or may not be successful at one or all of them. If you really want to be a Flight Attendant with a major just apply. If you get offered a job then you have a choice if you don't apply then no option for a choice.

Make sure your dates on the app. go before 10/2002 so it has to go to at least 09/2002.

Ok, I do have a serious question here; has anyone worked outside the United States within the last 10 years and had to provide any phone numbers of the facility where he/she used to work at in the application? I used to work for another Airlines company in the Middle East, at the work history section I had to provide non-US phone numbers and obviously that doesn't go through because it kept telling me there's an error with the red marked spaces at that section that has to be completed before submitting. I'm afraid that would affect my credibility at the application processing.
I'd be glad if I receive answers to my question., appreciation in advance.
Thanks.

I believe I would put in ten zeros and then in the section where it ask for the decription I would then put that contact number and note it is an international number and it couldn't be put in the above number section.

Well, I haven't done so..but I squeezed the number with the international code to be 10 numbers and fit in. How about speaking Hebrew? I actually speak three languages all fluently plus one more fairly. I hope that would help.

I did have a question about training with US Airways... Do you remember how long training is and whether it is paid or unpaid? If it's unpaid, how much do you think a person would need to get through training before starting to work?

When I applied I wasn't asked for any background information, just a few questions a resume attachment and done. Is this a bad sign? Also, I have no experience as a FA, however, I have 10+ years of customer service experience. Does US frown on not having FA experience?

No sweat if you don't have experience as a flight attendant. Most of the people I was in training with had no previous experience as a flight attendant (neither did I). Position announcement states that "prior flight attendant and/or airline experience is not required or necessary." Your experience in customer service will be useful!

Initial Training is held in PHX - even if you're based on the East Coast. If you're based in PHL, DCA, or CLT, you'll continue your training on the East Coast after 4 1/2 wks of training in PHX. Training is unpaid, but the company will provide a hotel room (single room - no roommate). Someone asked about how much money you'll need in training - completely depends on your lifestyle and what kinds of financial obligations you have when you start training. Keep in mind things like meal expenses, able to keep paying your bills while you're in training. Also remember that the pay is really low (especially if you're PHX based) and the first few paychecks (depending on when you start flying) can be dismal. You may have moving expenses once you complete training, first months rent/security deposit and setting up utilities (depending on where you live). I planned for two and half months of no income so that I could continue to meet my financial obligations and made it work, but barely.

I live in California, is it even possible for me to be a flight attendant out here in San Diego? There is an airport. Or is it always a relocation to those four bases you mentioned? Im not exactly sure how it works with bases.

The site says you don't have to relocate to your base, but they do recommend it. I would imagine it will be difficult to commute back and forth when you are on reserve. Pretty sure there is a probationary period after training, so you can't be late or miss a shift without a legitimate reason, (e.g. plane is late doesn't count!), or risk being terminated.

Some people (a lot of folks, actually) commute out of SAN. It's possible, but risky. Helpful to think of commuting as another part-time job. You have to plan ahead and have a backup (flights get delayed, planes break) and since there are several folks who commute out of SAN, you'll be the junior kid trying to fight for a jumpseat, and since you'll be the junior kid you won't always win the fight. That said - it is do-able - just hard.
