I will get my packet tomorrow and will see what the dress code is. I am coming from CT where it is cold and snowing at the moment. Should be a little warmer in ORF, so won't need a heavy coat. How about you?

I'm coming from Asheville NC so I am hoping for warmth, haha. It's supposed to snow tonight and tomorrow and I am not really looking forward to that. The dress code seems good, they allow many different options which is great. I'm stuck on my shirt choices though, haha. Not sure which way to go..

Hey! Oh my goodness, CO! When is their training? That would be a tough decision to make. It depends on which one appeals to you more.. They both have great qualities. I was offered a major a couple of months ago but I love the Regionals & the jets though.. It's tough, what do you think you'll do?

Hey KD,
I have a question! When did you attend your open house? Our interviews were right at the open house. Its like five mins long, very general questions, like customer service and if your willing to relocate.
Did they mention anything about future training dates? Because I just got a letter from Air Wis offering me employment but I*ve been put on a preferred list because they dont have a training date set...And I was wondering if they said anything!

I have an interview in Binghamton this week. Maybe they are waiting to see how the upcoming open houses go before getting a training class together. What else did they tell you as far as pay rate and relocating? i know they are starting to fly to Raleigh and Laguardia, are they going to staff those locations with new people first?

Hello KD, and Meaghan,
I was sent a letter from Air Wis about two weeks ago offering me employment also and like yours Meaghan it did not have a training date. When I was interviewed I asked the interviewer when the next training was and She told me there was no set date but that they were looking at the end of Feb OR Early March. There was a class that I just missed before getting hired and the graduation should be on or around the 15th of this month. Hopefully that will help. Let me know if you hear something different because we might be in the same class.

yo KD,
I know that they have open bases at Laguardia, and Philadelphia and the pay is 17.80pfh. As far as relocation is concerned I was told that on the completion of the Training you could be flying the next day. If you have to relocate I believe they said the they give you a week or 2. Hopefully the info is usefull to you, good luck at the interview.

At LGA this is how it went. Of course you must look professional and be punctual. ITs common sense for me and u but yould be surprised how many people dont dress the part also arrive late and want to be let in while the recuiters are speaking of the company. they speak of the new bases which will be in NC and LGA as well as the current bases PA,DC and VA pay attention to this it will be on an assessment test that they gave us it has basic math and questions about things that were spoken.So Pay attention to everthing they say!!! then they ask everyone to read aloud an annoucement then they ask everyone to take a break and they will post on the door who made the next step the rest of the people where excused Im assuming people were chosen based on there reading aloud skills and who scored 100 on the test they gave also on appearance.Once u see your name on the door u come in fill out an extensive application on backround check and get fingerprinted .I received a call once my backround cleared and finger prints. I hope this helps. If theres anything else yould like to know please ask!

I would also would like to be based out of LGA I was told it would open in may. For what i was told It shouldnt be a problem to get new bases are easy to get .The sooner we get through training the more senior we get thats why its good we didnt put off the training till later. I cant go early either ill be traveling a day before class out of LGA.

Yes absolutely!!! memorize the airport codes its a must and its one of the hardest test thats where people fail and get sent home . Remember we must maintain a 90 average !Also from what i read in this forum,we also must know an annoucement . Im not saying this to scare u the training is hard but not impossible if u study and apply yourself well make it and get through it with flying colors . We just have to know what we are there for no hanging out at night no socializing no exploring Va we have plenty of time for that after training!! Dont get me wrong im not a prude i love to hang and socialize but this is not going to be the time or the place for that .Ive heard stories from other flight attendants that have been through training some people forget there training and get distracted easily thats where they go wrong but Were not!! Right Meaghan and Philly Guy!!

your absolutely right during training my nose will be in the books. however I dont think that the city codes will be all that hard b/c we only fly half of the US no international no west coast so there really should not be to many codes to memorize...as far as Norfolk night life its okay now Va Beach is where you will get your action. My parents are living in Suffolk 5min from norfolk and by lil bro is in college in norfolk so I have been there and done that. but when we ALL graduate we can Party.... Everyone that is for sure going to training on the 24th shoot me an email: Mr.Banks1985@yahoo.com (yes thats my birth year)

Right..KD the mooola is a bit on the low side for the first year but remember this after the first you will hold a line and You will not be on reserve (unlike the major airlines) so the in the words of that little girl:"the sun will come out tomorrow" and you will get yours.

Hey Guys.
Airport codes are basically common sense anyway, so I think we should be fine. As far as training goes, my best friend is a flight attendant with Air Wis, she said it was a breeze. But that of course won't mean I won't be studying. ..Valentines Day, Judy? hahahha. Glad to see someone enjoys it. I hope we get our packets soon...I*m already overpacking!!!!
