Flight Attendant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied online - interviewed at SkyWest.

Interview Details

I submitted my resume online and attended one of their recruiting events. There were not a lot of people at our event. You check in and they immediately do a height test. If you pass that, you go in and listen to a lovely lady talk about the company and expectations for the job. They take a quick break to set up and ask you to think about why you want to be a flight attendant. When you return, they call on every one to go up, introduce themselves and tell why they want to be a flight attendant - or would make a good flight attendant. From there they break again and in about 30 minutes had a list of who would go on to the final questions. I made it to the final round of questions. They tell you to expect an email from them in about two weeks. It was a little longer than two weeks, but I was offered an invite to flight attendant training.

    Application Details

    interviewed at SkyWest in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Attended an open call interview in Minneapolis after applying online. Started at 6pm but you had to register an hour before where you dropped off your resume, measured your height and gave you a sticker to write your name. This took literally less than a minute so I had an hour to kill so I moved my car from the hotel ramp to the mall so I wouldn't have to pay for parking. (They do give give you parking passes later). There was about 50 or so of us and then we listened to a current flight attendant speak about the company and the job. Then we had a short break to and after we were each called up to the front of the room to answer why we would make a good flight attendant. Some people left during the break as they decided it wasn't for them.

    Interview Questions
    • Answering why you would make a good flight attendant I found to be difficult. Not so much as to finding a answer , but coming up with something original as after 30 applicants spoke. I also found it a bit nervous and it kept growing the more applicants spoke. About 5 Skywest employees sat it the back and took notes. When we were done we broke for about 45 minutes.   View Answer

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at SkyWest in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Cattle call type interview process, however lots of potential employees are not the right fit. Stand out by being confident and polished. Look the part. Take your time when answering a question. Be honest about your past when asked, they do a background check.

    Interview Questions
    • Must speak in front of entire room and say a few words about yourself. Do not say that you love people! Too cliche. Tell a fun story about yourself and why you would be a great Flight Attendant   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at SkyWest in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview was a group interview that took place at a hotel. We all had to answer interview questions in front of the other applicants. After this process the two interviewers sent the applicants outside of the conference room to discuss our responses and a majority of the applicants listened at the door while they discussed each applicant. The two interviewers basically discussed each applicants physical appearance. They discussed weight, height, attire, hairstyle, and make-up. They even referred to some applicants as "ghetto", "fat", and "old". I don't know if this is indicative of the company's typical hiring practice but this is my experience with Skywest Airlines. I was referred to as slightly overweight. However, I was offered an invitation to flight attendant training.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at SkyWest.

    Interview Details

    It was a very long time ago for me, and I'm sure things have changed. But in case they haven't this is what you can expect. I went to a group interview type event, and right away they had us all line up to get measured. I think you have to be at least 5'1 and no taller than 5'8. Once everyone was measured we went into a room and they told us about the company and what would be expected of us as a Flight Attendant. We took about a 30 minute break and gave people a chance to leave if this wasn't a job for them. Then we came back to the room and all got up in front and introduced ourselves, why we wanted to be a flight attendant and so on. When everyone was done, they gave us another break so they could pick out the ones they liked to stay around for the group interviews. They posted a list of people who were invited for the group interview. They put us in groups of about five and asked situational questions, which is mostly a way for them to see how you interact with others.
    We had another break after that and then they posted a list of the people they wanted for one on one interviews. That's when you would give them a copy of your resume. Of the 45 people who showed up that day, only six of us were selected for the one on one. Once that was over, I received an email about a week later congratulating me on being selected for the Flight Attendant position.

    Interview Questions
    • I really don't remember the questions I was asked. I can say just be friendly and keep in mind that the interviewers are looking at you and thinking, would I want to be on a plane with this person for four hours without a break?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There's no negotiating in the airline industry. It's more of a take it or leave it kind of deal. And with 10,000 people applying every time a company has an opening, they aren't at a loss for others who will take the job.
