  • 1. If you could start your career over again, what direction would you take?

      How to Answer

      A hiring manager will be able to tell a lot about your personality by learning about your other career interests. If you could do anything over, what would you do, and why?

      1st Answer Example

      "I certainly do not regret the direction I have taken my career; however, if I had to start over in a new direction completely I would likely pursue my Degree in Education and become a teacher. Both of my parents were teachers, and they seemed to have a very fulfilling career. I enjoy coaching and leading others so, any tasks in my current career that related to these skills, are very welcome."

      2nd Answer Example

      "I would take the same direction! I love what I do, and wouldn't change a thing. This industry brings a lot of excitement and fulfillment to my life."

      User-Submitted Answer

      "I always wanted to be a flight attendant, but I was always too short in those days. Life took me in other directions, honestly, I would not change anything my past made me who I am today."

      It's great that you don't regret the decisions you've made in the past. Why have you always wanted to be a flight attendant? What about the profession interests you? The more details you can provide about this, the more your passion for being a flight attendant will shine through, which will undoubtedly impress the interviewer. Good job!

  • 2. Are you familiar with our flight benefits and other employee perks?

      How to Answer

      The interviewer is checking to see if you have researched their company and what is offered for employee benefits. Check out the Allegiant Air website under their careers section and review their perks. Choose which aspects are the most exciting for you, and mention those.

      1st Answer Example

      "I am most excited about the flight benefits that you offer your employees as well as the fact that they are transferable to family members at certain times of the year. My parents live far away, and it would be a huge help to be able to fly them to see me now and then or vice versa."

      2nd Answer Example

      "What stood out to me most about your employee benefits were the excellent medical coverages as well as the tuition reimbursement and continued education opportunities. The benefits package at Allegiant Air is very generous."

      User-Submitted Answer

      "Yes, I have researched and also ask a couple of flight attendants."

      Allegiant Air is an equal opportunity employer, and you can be assured that the team you work on will be diverse in all ways.

  • 4. Do you have any limitations preventing you from flying, or doing this job safely?

      How to Answer

      What the interviewer is looking for is if you have any health issues or physical limitations that would prevent you from flying for long periods of time, or flying in general. These issues could include back or knee problems, vertigo, or even claustrophobia.

      Depending on your region, it may be illegal for an interviewer to ask you about physical handicaps or disabilities. Keep this in mind when crafting your answer.

      How to Answer

      Show the interviewer that you work well with most personalities even though you recognize there are some folks out there who are quite difficult to please.

      Giving a range as you did here is always a great idea. You might even expand your range a bit more so you don't pigeonhole yourself into less than what they were thinking of paying you. You could also flip the question around and ask the interviewer what range they were looking to pay and then respond affirmatively if that works for you. Avoiding giving numbers can be a good idea in terms of negotiating a higher salary.

      Great! If you've passed a criminal record check before, consider mentioning it here so the interviewer knows that you're definitely comfortable doing this and will likely pass.

  • 27. As a Flight Attendant you will be asked to work a wide range of hours and a lot of overtime. Are you able to accommodate the unpredictable schedule associated with being a Flight Attendant?

      How to Answer

      Allegiant Air flies to 177 destinations which means they are busy and have a lot of moving parts. This volume of work involves a variety of shifts and opportunities to work. Assure the interviewer that you are aware of the inconsistent schedule associated with being a Flight Attendant. Use examples if you have some experiences to draw on.

      User-Submitted Answer

      "Yes, I would be able to do so. As a former realtor, I had a crazy schedule and it worked for me."

      Perfect! Your realtor experience is exactly the type of background that the interviewer will be looking for in this instance because it's also demanding and unpredictable. Talk more about what your realtor schedule was like. Did you have to show houses unexpectedly? At odd hours? On the weekends? Can you talk about a time when it was inconvenient and yet you showed up and completed your job anyway?

  • 28. Have you received training on how to handle an in-flight emergency?

      How to Answer

      If an in-flight emergency occurred, would you know what to do? Assure the interviewer that you are confident in your ability to handle an emergency situation in a professional manner. If you are new to the industry and do not have the related training, be honest about that and comment on any other training you've completed, that may be relevant or helpful.

      User-Submitted Answer

      Nice! It's great that you're confident and that you possess the personality to remain calm and level-headed during an emergency. Don't forget, however, to directly answer the question. If you haven't received this training before, state that and then reassure the interviewer by mentioning your confidence and demeanor. Mentioning that you're excited to get the training is also a nice touch. Great job!

  • 29. Do you have any formal training in First Aid or CPR?

      How to Answer

      First Aid and CPR training is a requirement for many roles in the airline industry. Assure the interviewer that you have current and valid certification in CPR and First Aid. If you do not, be sure to express your willingness to do so.



      User-Submitted Answer

      "I do not currently hold a current First Aid/CPR certification, but would be happy to complete this right away."

      It's great that you're open to getting this type of training. The interviewer will appreciate this. Consider talking more about why you're willing to do this. Will it allow you to help customers who are in need? Do you enjoy helping other people? Are you the type of person who excels in an emergency-type situation? Talk more about your strengths so the interviewer concentrates on them instead of the fact that you're not yet certified in this area.

  • 30. Tell me about any airline related training that you have been through.

      How to Answer

      Regardless of any industry related training that you have been through, you will need to complete training specific to Allegiant Air.

      If you do not have any industry-specific training, perhaps you have training that would be transferable to this role (IE: Sales, Safety, Customer Service, Technical, etc.). Walk the interviewer through any on-the-job training you feel would be helpful.

      User-Submitted Answer

      Was the CPR certification related to flying? If so, be sure to point this out. If not, consider explaining why you got it. You might also provide an explanation for why you didn't get recertified so the interviewer understands why. Then you might talk about why you're interested in working for an airline. What interests you in this field? Focusing on this will show your passion and downplay any lack of experience or education. Good job!
