Flight Attendant Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SkyWest Airlines (Sacramento, CA) in January 2017.

Interview

They start off with a brief overview of what the interviewing process will consist as well as what they're expectations are for the position. Then everyone has a minute each to get in front without a mic and tell why the think they'll be great for the FA position. They specifically inform you to not go over the minute and to not clap until after everyone is done, so don't! Lol. Once that's over there's a 45min break for them to decide who gets a face-to- face interview. Take that time to go over the questions they'll ask. After the 45mins they post their list. The one i went to only 7 of 40 made it to face-to-face. If you're selected they have you fill out your information and give you an overview of what to expect if you make it to training. Once that's over the excuse everyone out of the room and they conduct they're 1 on 1 interviews. Even though it's about 4 of them they still do 1 on 1's.

Negotiation

Absolutely dress the part! No crazy colors, have your hair neat and nice, band always be aware of your body language, and for the ladies, Skywest requires you to wear mascara and lipstick or tinted lip gloss, i didn't do this so be better than i was lol. Be very honest and personal. In the 1 min intro don't get too personal realize it's your job no married with kids speech and mention how previous jobs have helped. In the 45 min break use that time wisely to prepare and calm your nerves if needed. If you're not on the list don't be discouraged if this is really what you want to do. If you are one the list be yourself.

    Interview

    I applied as required for all potential applicants, then I waited for the response from Skywest I received it less than a week. To select any of the upcoming locations and dates with the available time, I selected April 19 in El Segundo, CA.
    SkyWest expected a large number of applicants so two rooms was reserved this is an estimate about 40 applicants in the first room, not sure how many applicants was located in the other room. We stood in line and waited to enter, you must have a resume. You will not be allowed to enter the informational session, I seen several people scrambling and others were turned away at the door.
    Once we enter the room everyone in the room was very nice sharing their stories, not one person wasn't approachable. After the presentation and Q&A we were instructed if this is not for you, you don't have to stay, we were given an half hour to return to the room for the next stage.

    Okay folks what you read previously about the process is not all true, it is "SO" competitive to become a flight attendant for SkyWest, we were given one question to sell ourselves in 60 seconds.

    You have to be confident and poise when you speak. Do not bring a paper and read from it this is a no, no. Of course you need to smile you have to given genuine examples that your own personality comes out.
    Out of the 80 applicants about 40 each room only "FIVE" from each group was selected to move on to the face-to-face interview. I was shocked only five names was posted on the door!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SkyWest Airlines (Atlanta, GA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I first applied online through Skywest website in order to attained the recruitment event at a Atlanta hotel on March 7th. I traveled from Orlando as this was the closest event they had to me. Sign-in is from 5-6 pm , with doors closing at 6 PM SHARP, so do not be late!

    A nice SkyWest flight attendant started by explaining the history behind Skywest and the requirements for the FA job (NO visible tattoo, MUST BE willing to relocate to another state where their domiciles are and you HAVE to attend training on the date that they inform you of). After a brief Q&A she informed us to take a 15 mins break to see if the company and job would be a good fit for you. Also PLEASE ,PLEASE,PLEASE be prepared to give a speech on WHY YOU WOULD MAKE A GOOD FLIGHT ATTENDANT in under 1 min. Before attending the event I researched for weeks on Glassdoor and prepared a speech and it helped sooooo much! Give your career background and examples of how you gave great customer service. DO NOT mention:where you are from, pets,family etc. AND DON'T FORGET TO SMILE, there were so many people that gave a speech who were not smiling and looked too cocky or they were too nervous to remember about their posture and presence.

    Even if you are nervous try to mingle with the other ppl who are there, it will help with the nerves and show the recruiters that you can socialize with other people.

    DRESS PROFESSIONALLY! I tried my best to look like a flight attendant so in the recruiters eyes they can in-vision me being apart of the team. Black dress pants with stocking, black closed-toe heels no more than 3 inches, white button down shirt with a nice blazer. Hair pulled back into a bun , light makeup with red lips and pearl earrings.

    After your speech the recruiters take 45mins to decide who gets a face to face interview. I was lucky enough to be picked and was interviewed by the nice FA who went over the company history. She ask common customer service questions and to read a flight announcement, remember to smile while reading. I also asked questions about the company and for advice to show I researched and showed interest.

    Overall a great experience for a airline interview, be prepared to be there from 5-6 hours and dont forget to have a positive attitude. I meet alot of nice people and everyone was so supportive! Now I have to wait 2 weeks to see if I have been accepted for training in Salt Lake City or not. FINGERS CROSSED !

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SkyWest Airlines (Salt Lake City, UT) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview is an open house format. Doors opened at 5 pm with interviews starting at 6. Was told to be there closer to 5 rather than 6. Showed up at 5:15.
    They split us into 2 groups of roughly 40-60 in each room.
    2 Flight Attendant Recruiters went through the job requirements, info, schedule, etc. Most all of what they covered is available on SkyWest's website.
    Each person then stood up for 1 min and spoke on why they would make a good flight attendant for SkyWest. I was told to be yourself and that they are looking more for how you present yourself and how you sound rather than the content itself.
    The recruiters then excused us for 45 min while they discussed our presentations and reviewed our resumes.
    They posted lists on the door of who attained a one on one interview, of which 12 out of my group of roughly 40 made. The other room had 13 move on. We then waited and waited some more. I was one of the last persons chosen out of 25 and left the building around 11:30.
    The one on one was pretty straight forward. Questions are listed below.
    Haven't heard back yet via e-mail, but was told it can take up to 2 weeks.
    *Update: received my offer 6 days later. Looking forward training.

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at SkyWest Airlines in April 2017.

    Interview

    If you have tattoos don't bother going! The company's website specifically says that tattoos are not allowed while IN uniform. Upon arriving the recruiter said that they were not allowed at all, and that your body would be checked for them at training. I still believe that this would be an awesome company to work for, but they are missing out on amazing employees with this policy.

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SkyWest Airlines in April 2017.

    Interview

    It was an open house interview. I arrived an hour early just in case. Eventually everyone else showed up, the recruiters take our resume. Then they check our height. Next we listen for about 40 min about the company, training, relocation, and pay. Next was a 15 min break. Afterwords we had 60 seconds or less to go in front of everyone (it was about 30 people) and say why we think we would be a good flight attendant. Don't talk about family/personal stuff, focus on the professional aspect. And seriously don't go over a minute. Dress just like a flight attendant. Look professional.
