    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Compass Airlines (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    The hiring process was pretty simple, especially when they are in a position where they need people bad. Most of the time it's a panel of interviewers, with multiple questions of past experiences and how you handled them.

    Flight Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Compass Airlines (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The first round is basically an info session on pay rate, hours guarenteed each month, being on reserve as a new flight attendant, relocating, seniority, benefits, etc. Secondly, they give you a random number and then post some questions on the screen and you have to answer the question based on your matching number. They're all customer service based that are very specific when it comes to giving real life examples. You have 1 minute to answer. Smile, have good posture and one thing I noticed, try not to give examples about you getting paid extra tips or the pay was great at your job (anything money-related) because I noticed a lot of people were turned down for the second round of interviews. They want stories about an act of kindness or what you did specifically with a customer that made them smile, not "...oh and I was tipped $100 at the end" as an example of great customer service. Yes we all want to get paid and be financially stable but don't give examples about you getting tips or complaining about the pay rate at your job. Also, don't be so stiff and serious. Half of the people that were called for the second round were jolly, smiling and looking at both the recruiters and the audience. Be presentable and welcoming. Eye contact is important. Lastly, they send you to lunch and if your number is highlighted on the door after you come back from lunch, you will receive a face to face interview with a recruiter. Most likely if you made it to face to face, you'll be at LAX until about 5 p.m. Mind you check in was at 8 a.m. The recruiter asks you questions like "...why compass airlines?" "...why do you want to be a flight attendant?" etc. If they like you, the recruiter will walk you to the finger printing and background check room offering you a CJO for training. They briefly told us in the second round of interviews that they can only offer a few on the spot offers and if they tell you that they'll call you in a week, most likely you didn't get it. I feel like it varies. You'll fill out a CJO form with just your signature, finger printing and just other important paperwork. After finger printing, the background check lady will tell you that you'll receive an email in about a month on all the important details for training (for my case we were told training starts in January and this interview was in November; therefore it's still another process to have your background check cleared and such), which is why they said to look out for an email in about 3-4 weeks for your itinerary details. Training is in St. Paul, Minnesota.
