    Flight Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Memphis, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Northwest Airlines (Memphis, TN).

    Interview

    Went to an open house they were having. Talked with a recruiter and thought because of her body language I had blown it. A month or 2 later they called asking me, how would you like to be a flight attendant? I literally screamed into the phone. I've always thought I probably caused him some hearing loss.

    Negotiation

    Be very open and flexible. Show your enthusiasm! Flying is the BEST JOB in the world!
