    Flight Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Mesa Air in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied in Mesa Air 2 months ago and I received an OH invitation in CLT but due to financial difficulty I wasnt able to make it and they sent me another invitation for Houston OH which is 3 hrs drive away from me. I sent an email to them that confirming that I can attend so that I can reserve a seat. They confirmed and sent me my final seat confirmation.
    I arrived at Hampton Hotel 30 mins before the scheduled OH. Surprisingly, we are only 9 applicants and I was expecting like 50 or more (I base it on my Open House Interview Experiences)
    We started on time and the recruiting team are so cool (E.H. and E.V.) those are their initials. At first, we were asked to introduce ourselves and describe ourselves in ONE word and they presented the company profile, benefits, pay, aircraft, and uniform guidelines.
    After an hour and half of introduction we had a break for 20-30 mins and they started calling us 3 at a time (since there are 3 interviewers)

    1st interview process:
    The inflight Manager asked us (while the 3 of us applicants standing infront of the table) HOW LONG DO YOU SEE YOURSELF FLYING? and they asked us to read the boarding announcement and do the seat belt safety demo and we went to our own interviewers to do the F2F.

    2nd interview process:
    Basic questions are being asked to me such as Do you have DUI/DWI record for the past 5 years? Are you willing to relocate? are you willing to attend the unpaid training for 3-6 weeks in PHX? etc... after answering all the basic question my interviewer asked me my final question which is related to the very first question asked by the Inflight Manager which is How long do you see yourself flying and why? (they just want a elaborate answer and straight forward)

    After all the process we have been told that we will receive an email within 24-48 hrs for whatever results and outcome of the interview.

    On my way home back to San Antonio (while driving in I-10) after 2 hrs from the time I left the OH I immediately received an email that I am SELECTED to do the FINAL PHASE which is the FINAL INTERVIEW thru Video Conferencing (ooVoo) with the Inflight Manager.

    I sent them a reply on my availability to do the conference call and KEEPING MY HOPES that I will get the JOB OFFER. I will update my post whatever the outcome of the video conference.

    GOOD LUCK TO ALL FUTURE APPLICANTS. I hope my experience will you go through the process.

    SOAR HIGH AND FLY LIKE AN EAGLE!!!!!!!

    Crew Scheduler/Tracker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Mesa Air in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied two months before I got a call for the interview, once I started my interview they asked the standard questions, went over the resume, then asked the personal questions. What are your goals, what do you plan to do while you're here, etc. Once the questions were dealt with and answered, they had me step into the SOC and get a feel of where I would be and sat me down with a tracker who demonstrated what everything looked like, how to do it, etc. but none of it made sense. After they sat me down they walked away and apparently discussed whether I was going to be hired or not. Within a few minutes they returned and offered me a job and gave me the in formation about when I would come back and start the process, talk to HR, and get my badge. HR was very disorganized and he made it clear he was working hard but working alone so to be patient. We were supposed to be there for 1-2 hours to fill out paperwork and ended being stuck there for 3 and a half and didn't have the process done 100%.

    Flight Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Mesa Air in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume with several airlines for a flight attendant position and Mesa was the first to contact me. After accepting and attending their information session in Greensboro NC, I was contacted immediately for another interview and sent to Phoenix, AZ for ground school training within 8 days. All recruiters and in-flight instructors were professional and fun to interview with, learn from and know. Ground school lasted close to 4 weeks but I was in Phoenix for close to 6 weeks before I was certified and on line. Everything came natural and easy for me and I absolutely love being a flight attendant. The best thing you can do is relax, be yourself and have fun. Ground school was a little trying at times because of other students and disorganization within management. You need to maintain an 85% average at all times in ground school but if you pay attention in class they cover EVERYTHING you are tested on. I never studied outside of class and maintained a 95% average. If you are meant to be a flight attendant this will come naturally and you will be wonderful.

    Interview Questions
    • The only challenging part is being stuck with other flight attendants in training and on the line, that have bad attitudes, poor communication skills and are overall unpleasant people. Make sure you have plenty of customer service experience!!! Agreeable, relaxed, charming, competent and nonjudgmental people are needed in the friendly skies!! :) Lastly, DON'T BE A FLIGHT ATTENDANT TO MAKE MONEY - it is a lot of work for a little money and those paycheck deductions don't stop even if you pay out of pocket for uniforms..   Answer Question

    Flight Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Myrtle Beach, SC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Myrtle Beach, SC
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Mesa Air in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I started applying back in January of 2013, I have received an invitation here and there but couldn't go at that moment due to my financial situation. I was astonished when I received an invitation for an interview in Myrtle beach and it's like two hours away from home. Their respond was very quick within the next day.

    When I got to Myrtle beach there were only 6 of us who actually showed up, not including the ones who were delayed because of their flights. Our recruiter was super friendly and very helpful. high five for Kavita Doshi. anyway we waited for about almost 40 minutes due to we were still waiting for the other applicants and after 40 minutes we just went ahead to the conference room. started introducing each other in front of everyone, the recruiter (kavita doshi) talked about the mesa airlines CEO, History, lifestyle, pays, locations, benefit and perks. that went on for about almost an hour. after the presentation we were instructed to wait outside of the conference room and that was when the 1:1 started. The recruiter called us 1 at a time to go in the conference room to do the 1:1 interview. some of us went on for almost 45 minutes and I had my interview for about 30 minutes. it took all day for 6 of us on that interview. after the interview we had to leave the room.

    I did not expect to get the result right away because we were told it could take up to 2-3 weeks or so but the next day not even 48 hours I got the email from them about the final phase. I had to reply to the email to make an appointment for the final phase and within the same week I got the final phase with the inflight manager on Oovoo for those who can't travel to go for the final phase. The final phase took me for about half hour. The same day I was asked to logged back in by the inflight manager and I was offered for the flight attendant position. I received a lot o updates from the airlines such as job offer, initial training packet, and class date. I am now just waiting for the day to fly for my training in Phoenix, AZ this coming october 21st, and I am very pleased of over all processing, the recruiter is such a sweetheart and Pearl Norton is very nice and professional.

    Interview Details

    Applied online then got an email saying to attend a session in CLT. Me and 4 other people waited in the lobby 15 minutes after the scheduled interview time. Finally a lady came and took us upstairs to a meeting room. Gave us an overview of the company and our "tuition free" training. Then sent us back downstairs for about 30 minutes.
    Separately interviewed with 3 different people. Basic questions. They all asked the same thing and I felt awkward giving the same answer. After it was all over they said they would contact me with either a yes or no and a couple months later I haven't heard a word.

    Flight Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Mesa Air in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Mesa is currently hiring F/As for their United Express operation out of Chicago-O'hare and Washington-Dulles Airports.

    I applied through their website which redirects you to AirlineAPPs. Quite lengthy application and pretty detailed and I can understand why now; will explain later. I submitted my application in May (you can only submit an application if they are recruiting) and got an email several weeks later stating they moved forward with other candidates and would keep my application on file for 3 months then I could reapply. I hear this all the time and sort of forgot about it. 2 and 1/2 weeks ago I recieved an invite for one of their info sesions (only way to get into the invite is to actually get an inviation from them). I couldn't attend the one for that week but I did attend the one today (07/09/2010).

    I was extended the invitation for their CLT session. Mesa DOES NOT fly you positive space like other airlines do to your interview becasue this is technically only an info session although it is standard for them to interview the same day. -Drove to Charlotte that afternoon from Atlanta and arrived at the"Old Airport Terminal" BLDG @ CLT where Mesa's offices are. We were greeted by inflight recruiters Bob and Amy who are extremely nice and really go out their way to make you feel comfortable. We were all (about 14 of us) escorted upstairs to the conference room. They went through a VERY detailed presentation on Mesa, its history, a/c, F/A duties, yada yada yada. Lasted about 55 minutes. We went on break then came back to do a group activity. Won't go into detail but I honestly didnt get the point of the activity itself but they were watching and taking notes (they took notes the entire time). I've heard this about most F/A group sessions @ different companies.

    Once that was done were broke for another break then they called everyone in 1 by1 for 1:1 interviews. Pretty straightforward; had a binder where they read questions from and took notes. They were all pretty nice but kept to the point and time limit. I noticed some interviews were about 5 minutes, others were 15-20. Mines was one of the 20 minute interviews. Also, the 20 minute interviews was actually 2:1. You would either have Amy or Bob and there was another older lady that I never caught her name but I believe she is the inflight manager for Mesa. Not sure what all that means but I think the longer 2:1s were who they were really considering. Just my opinion. As soon as you walk in the door, they catch you off guard and ask you to read the card on the table.--It is a section of one of the announcements. Mines was a smip from the water landing section. I think it's to see how well you actually read, diction, etc. I know people that have a HS diploma and can barely read.

    They told us off the bat that ORD and IAD are their junor bases. They also told us we will get an email within 3 days to 2 weeks letting us know if we will be selected for a class or not. So regardless if you were hiried, you will get an email. Don't have to wait for a letter in the mail. Will update when I get the email!!
