    I have been working at SkyWest Airlines full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Every one is so interconnected at SkyWest. It really does feel like one big work family. Management and Corporate are only phone call away and they're always very swift with replies and finding solutions for problems. I love most of the crews I fly with and am so glad to have chosen to work for such wonderful company.

    Cons

    I really don't have any cons other than that I wish we had East Coast bases too haha.

    Flight Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.
