Flight Attendant
Fresno, CA

I applied online - interviewed at SkyWest in April 2014.

Interview Details – I attended a group interview, when I had went I actually expected to see a lot of people like around 200+ which is what I had read but there was no more then 70 people who attended they had everyone before being seated get measured at the door, you can't be taller then 5'8 after that they went over all the information that was basically on their website, after they explained if this type of career wasn't for you and you know then you can feel free to leave, and then after coming back from break they told us they had a good feeling about the group and would like to invite everyone who stayed for an individual one on one interview I was happy and nervous

Flight Attendant Interview

Flight Attendant

I applied online and 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 Question – 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.

Flight Attendant Interview

Flight Attendant
Chicago, IL

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at SkyWest in March 2012.

Interview Details – I had a family member who was already employed with Skywest. The hiring when it was made public was first filling out an online application. Then followed up with a phone interview. You go to the interview location yourself. You then are told about the company in a group setting. You are asked to give a less than one minute presentation of who you are and what you can bring to the company. A list is posted of the ones who continue the interview process one on one.

Very Easy Interview

Flight Attendant Interview

Flight Attendant
San Jose, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at SkyWest in January 2013.

Interview Details – THE worst F/A Recruiting Process, Ever. It was definitely a cattle call and if you were an indigent and wanted to attend the event to loiter, you were more than welcome to. It is nice that their OPEN HOUSE was available to anyone but they need to put serious candidates in a separate room instead of putting us through the agony of listening to 200 people speak, at 60-second intervals (which took five hours) spiel about why they want to work for the company. Really?! It was nice that they gave everyone an equal opportunity to speak and have a chance at the glamorous and dream job of flying for a "regional" airline. There were no media available, and the woman just passed out cards and told you to scan with your smartphone. Yeah, who doesn't have one these days? It started at 8:30 am and did not finish until 11:30pm. Absolutely disorganized and chaotic. Also, do not wear a suit. It is too professional for their taste. Who they chose made absolutely NO rhyme or reason. Please, I would like to know.

Interview Question – The group question was "Why do you want to be a SkyWest Flight Attendant?". One-on-one (about 15-20 min in duration) were situational customer-service related questions such as, "What would you do if/when...".   View Answer

Reason for Declining – I had a better offer.
