Interview Details – Applied online, received email that I had been invited for a group interview. Did the group interview, and then a written test.

Flight Attendant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Honolulu, HI

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Hawaiian Airlines in April 2011.

Interview Details – It was about 300 people at a convention center. 200 through out the day for90 positions. 5$ parking fee. You arrived and they played this strange game of mouse. First you were asked to identify yourself by your first name? Then you went into line 1 to make sure you could reach in the overhead compartment of an airplane. After that the guy mumbled and said line up in line B. I went to the back then someone else said line up in front? So I lines up in first name alphebetical order in a large line. I think I had already failed the course by that time. I did think I looked pretty in my suit though. Went to a room with 25 people. Q. If you were a name brand what brand would you be? I was no. 3 and I couldn't really come up with something. Then we were divided into groups of 4 and asked if you were on a boat that was sinking and you had 6 people to put into a lifeboat who would you put? You have 12 people and their occupations and age. We said that we would choose random people because it was a life or death situation. I don't that was the write answer because we kind of didn't follow directions. That was it and maybe next time!!

Interview Details – I was interviewed by 2 managers, basic stuff like: Why Hawaiian, and Tell me about yourself. Then they got into situations like customer problems, and how to handle them, also if I would be available any hours and days. The Station Manager was all over the place and seemed like she didn't know a lot of her operations. The Asst Mgr new his stuff, and was able to correct a lot of things casually so not to show up the manager.
