    Flight Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Virgin Atlantic Airways (Salt Lake City, UT) in June 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process is an open interview. The company does a presentation as to what the position will entail. For those that are still interested, stand and do a brief self introduction and express why they feel they are qualification for this position. If you pass that part of the interview, then you get broken off into smaller groups and more questions are asked. Again, if you pass that part of the interview, then you are giving an individual interview. You then leave and are notified any where for a day to 2 weeks later if you have been selected to continue for training. This does not guarantee a position. The training is 28 days of class. You are tested everyday, and if you fail or show less then desirable qualities during this process you are excused. This can happen at anytime, I, literally, saw candidates sent home the day before graduation. After you graduation from training, you are sent of a trip with a senior FA to evaluation your performance. If you pass that, THEN you have a job.

    Interview Questions

    • What I found most difficult is the month of uncertainty. It's obviously intentional. They need to know you can hold up under stressful circumstances, and it's good training because in many flights you are the only FA and need to be able to feel confident in yourself and your abilities.   Answer Question
