    Flight Attendant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at US Airways.

    Interview Details

    1) First apply online
    2) Look for email to create video interview
    3) Get phone call to for in-person interview
    4) IF you want the job, SHOW UP EARLY!!!
    5) IF you want the job, PREPARE by practicing interview questions from previous posts.
    6) IF you want the job, PAY ATTENTION to and follow instructions from person who booked your interview appointment. (ex. Dress code = dark colored suit, grooming, etc). This is a conservative corporate operation and if that's not you or you can't adapt, DON'T APPLY!

    *** DON'T APPLY FOR FLIGHT ATTENDANT IF YOU DON'T HAVE A PASSPORT!!! ***

    You CANNOT complete the interview if you don't have a valid passport in hand!

    IF you want the job, don't bring your book to read or play with electronic gadgets, get to know the fellow applicants. This job REQUIRES you to be friendly and quickly get to know strangers. You don't have to be their best friend but you do need to be genuinely interested and demonstrate good people skills. AFTERALL, they could be your future co-worker!

    DO be prepared to give a 1minute introduction, listing 3 things that makes an exceptional flight attendant.
    DO come prepared with good questions to ask during group and 1on 1 interview.
    DO come prepared to accept a job offer that day AND EXPECT to relocate.

    *** DO have a substantial savings or support system that will accommodate 6-8weeks of NO PAY!!! Training is unpaid and it will be a few weeks before you get your 1st paycheck once you start working. THEN, you need money to establish new residence in new base state.

    You will likely get sent home if you:
      - Show up late or miss your flight to the interview!
      - Arrive looking like you just woke up
      - Are not genuine in your mannerism
      - Bomb the 1minute presentation
      - If you are a poor reader

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at US Airways in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I just got done with the video interview and I must say it was pretty nerve wrecking. As much as I prepared for it, I was still nervous. Only because it's an automated recording, not a live person so you don't know what their reaction is and you can't feed off of their reactions. The questions they ask aren't exactly the same. I was caught off guard with a couple of them but I was able to make it through. They give you a minute to think about your answer, so that helped alot.
    One of my tips is to always be prepared. Don't go in thinking you've got all the answers because you prepared with the questions they show here. Expect the unexpected and just be yourself.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at US Airways in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied on a Wed, by Thurs morning I received an email to interview via automated video. I waited about a full week until I actually sat down to do it. During that time I received 3 emails, the invite to interview, the reminder email, and lastly, the "last" reminder to interview with them.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't any difficult questions, but the process was different and I was visibly nervous. It was awkward and I'm sure I was a babbling idiot during the process. I hope they see past that, and ask me to a f2f interview.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at US Airways in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I am a former flight attendant. It has been a while since I was in the airline industry. I am accustomed to putting on the smile and being friendly toward all people. I was invited to an interview process at Charlotte Recruitment Training Center. There were about 70 of us. We were taken to the facility and divided into two groups. The initial task given to us was to determine if we can reach the emergency equipment stored in an overhead bin and if we can fit into the jump-seat and fasten the seatbelt. We were asked to go before our group introduce ourselves and tell what in our opinion makes a great flight attendant within a one minute time frame. Some people were excellent in their speech presentation. Others were too nervous but managed to overcome to their obvious fear. Being confident I was called after someone that delivered his presentation like a comedian. While most of the characteristics were previously mentioned, I wanted to emphasis that the empathy that I learned as a flight attendant was something that I carried with me though out my life and it proved to be most beneficial. The last and final task was the group activity I have detailed below.

    Interview Questions
    • The following task was presented as a "game". We were given a scenario whereby we were survivors of a plane crash in northern Canada. We were given 12 items that we were to use for survival and were told to list the items we would use in order of priority. I am a competitor and a gamer. My family plays a game called Mafia when we get together over the holidays. I lost my interview state of mind and became a Mafia player. Instead of realizing that the whole idea is not getting the items in order and winning the game, it is how you communicate and show yourself either a leader or a follower, compassionate and understanding.   View Answer
