Hi, I had a live interview video about 20-23 days ago and haven't heard anything back about a face to face interview. I know the time to hear back from the recruiters fluctuates with each candidate, as far as i can see. Don't lose hope or become discouraged! I wish everyone the best of luck :)

Biggest Tip – Delta is very conservative. The understated, tailored look is key. This is not the interview where you want to stand out with your appearance.


THE RULES
1. Everything is a test!! Remain cheerful, bubbly, and professional at all times; never let your guard down.
2. The interview starts as soon as you arrive onsite.
3. Arrive well-fed and hydrated. They will offer drinks and snacks. Do NOT accept. FAs can go long periods of time without eating/drinking, as they're busy serving passengers. They want to know you can do the same.
4. Arrive at least 45 minutes early. Spend this time mingling with fellow candidates. Engage them as graciously as you would passengers. NEVER focus on yourself in a boastful manner. Be confident yet practice modesty. Ask others questions about themselves, show interest, and relate positively.
5. Treat all fellow candidates as if they are secretly watching you on behalf of Delta...
6. When the official interview process begins, you will stow any accessories such as bags or coats. You will not have access to these items during the duration of the interview; so be sure to grab any needed items at this point. Examples of items to store in your pockets: lip balm, lipstick, mints, or hand lotion.
7. During designated social periods (breaks where you are free to roam), your goal is to speak to several flight attendants. It is okay -- actually preferable -- if you don't speak to all; they can tell when you're trying to overdo it. Ask informed questions about their travels, work life, etc. Do not ask questions covered in the data previously given to you. When in doubt, ask them about their personal experiences.
8. Avoid talking too much during group sessions with FA. Observe instead. Those who dominate the conversation are never chosen. They do not want candidates who appear competitive, flashy, or boastful. Never forget FAs have a servants/service role.
9. Your time to shine is during the one-on-one. Demonstrate how you've done your research on what it takes to be a FA and your ability to serve.
10. During the team drill/exercise, they are watching to see how well you work with others. You are working on behalf of the team -- not yourself. Be a good leader and follower. Focus on your team's fantastic efforts when asked questions.
11. They will discreetly check for tattoos. If you have tattoos on your ankles, feet, lower back, wrists, or anywhere above the neck, beware. *Be sure your lower back is fully covered by your blazer even if you raise your hands to the sky. Also, you will remove your shoes during an exercise; so don't think you can hide any tattoos with shoes alone.*
12. They may ask you, “Do you have any visible tattoos?” Those who receive an offer say, “I do not” or “I do not have ANY tattoos at all.”


GRAND FINALE
At the end of the interview, they will dismiss people in group; if you are dismissed, you did not score high enough. They will make a clever storyline regarding why they dismiss in groups, in order to keep the peace and avoid drama. (Delta's honesty motto applies to candidates, not HR.) Those who are extended an offer will remain until the grand finale. This is when job offers are extended and HR paperwork begins. If they shuttle you off without a job offer, be prepared to receive your TBNT.
If you are dismissed, keep faking that smile because you are still being watched. In the VERY slim chance accepted candidates decline the offer, they may contact dismissed candidates with offers. However, this is extremely rare, so please don't rely on false hope.
If you're dismissed, go home, dust yourself off, keep your chin up, and activate your backup plan.


KEYWORDS
FA: flight attendant
CJO: contingent job offer
TBNT: "thanks but no thanks" aka rejection email removing you from the running.
