    I have been working at Alaska Airlines full-time (more than 10 years)


    This company has given me some opportunities that some may had not when I first entered the aviation field. Although nothing is perfect, it's what you make of your career will decide how you perceive this company. There are advancement opportunity and movement within the company is possible. As most companies the pay is not industry leading, but is averge maybe higher.


    Cons in this company are the same as all large corporations. Working midnight shift weekends and holidays are in every aviation job. In the Work center there is no recognition other then what is contractually required. So don't expect pats on the back for a job well done, that is what paychecks are for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to innovate and find new ways to increase production thru technology. Personal recognition for achievements should be offered. Educational benefits should be offered.

    Flight Attendant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Alaska Airlines.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received an email a few months later requesting a phone interview. I had my phone interview the next day at a time that was convenient to me. It was a quick 20 minute interview with simple questions like "Are you willing to relocate?", "Why did you leave your last position?, and "What qualities should a flight attendant have?". They were very nice and positive on the phone which was a nice boost for confidence personally. Remember to keep it short, simple, and to the point.

    Have your resume on hand because the first thing they do is go over your work history.

    Stay up beat throughout the whole interview and remember passenger safety is the most important thing to a flight attendant. Work it in or mention it whenever you can!

    I was invited to attend the next phase of the interview process at the end of the phone call.

    I will attend the next phase soon.
