    Flight Attendant Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pinnacle Airlines (Memphis, TN) in January 2011.

    Interview

    It was like a cattle call for a part in a movie. You had to have a valid passport or you could not get into the interview. There were 200-300 applicants. You went in as groups and had to get in front of everyone so the panel could see how you were in front of strangers. They cut the field in half and moved on to role play. They cut in half and then you tested. They cut again and then you had 1:1. They left you hanging for a few weeks and then called you if you made it to the class for FA training. The class is 4 weeks straight. You have lots of tests. If you make below 80, you immediately retest and have to make 90. If not, your cut. My graduation class lost 60% of the applicants.

    Interview Questions

    • Why you want to be a flight attendant? Read announcement cards. Role play and One on Ones.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is none. It is union.
