    Pros

    Great work experience right out of college. Good travel benefits, rotating crews, and flexible schedule (depending on seniority). Quality overnights out of SLC, less so out of ORD.

    Cons

    Mediocre pay, long days/long breaks. Most people don't realize that your hourly pay starts when the aircraft door closes, and stops once it opens back on the ground. The rest of the time, unless it's a single day trip, you are getting paid per diem.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at SkyWest Airlines (Long Beach, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online. Saw that they had a hiring session coming up in Long Beach, Ca (April 2, 2015) so I went. This was my first time going to anything like that, but i researched alot and pretty much knew what to expect. The interview process was like most people have explained. It was a group of about 60. After they explained the job requirements they gave us a break, and a chance for those who were no longer interested to leave. Maybe 4 or 5 ended up leaving. Then we got 60 seconds to pitch to the crowd why we would make a good flight attendant. I don't think the answer matters as much as other factors during this part. First off is how you look. Dress professional! I wore a business suit and heels. Second is how you handle being in front of a crowd. Don't be intimidated, just act comfortable and be yourself. Your attitude is important, don't be too serious, smile a lot and be friendly. After all of us did our little presentation we had another break. After the break they posted a list of names of the people who passed. There was maybe 12 names maximum on the list. Mine was one of them. We were asked to stay for a second interview. We filled out a quick paper with our info, social, base preference, etc. They called us one by one for a face to face. I interviewed with one person, and she was super nice. It was a really relaxed interview. They asked about availability, base preference, if I was willing to relocate and understood the probability of relocation. Then just a few basic questions.Like 4 or 5 max. What kind of people annoyed me was one of the questions. I thought that was funny. I said drunk people are "challenging" lol After the interview they said they would contact me in about a week. I heard back on day 6 with the offer.
