When starting Flight attendant training you are placed in a class with other flight attendant trainees (
On average usually anywhere from 10 to 50 trainees per class, maybe more, maybe less), your new classmates are usually from different parts of the country and the world. . Training can be extremely stressful during your initial training you are in class most of the day 8am - 5pm, Monday thru Friday, with a 30 to 45 minute lunch and about 2 breaks a day. You usually receive some monetary compensation not much when I attended training 14 years ago we received about $100.00 dollars per week every Friday. You have tons of homework, and computer homework that you have to do and be tested on. Usually there are 2 to 3 tests per week, training is usually somewhere between 4 to 6 weeks. You have to make a 90 percent or higher on all of your test, you can only have one test retake. You have aircraft evacuation training drills. when tested on these drills you have to show 100 percent proficiency in your ability to evacuate an aircraft in a certain amount of time. Flight attendant training is about 90 safety and 10 percent customer service/service. The last 2 or 3 weekends of your training you will have training flights. During these actual flights customers are made aware that there are flight attendant trainees on board. You watch, assist and work along side actual flight attendants, you are evaluated on your training flights. When you have successfully completed all of your testing there's a ceremony a flight attendant graduation where you and your classmates dressed in your new flight attendant uniforms will have your flight attendant wings pinned on you. This is usually done by someone who is already a Flight attendant with United, ( relative, friend, or one of your Flight attendant training instructors), you also receive your new United employee Id.
