Flight attendants have a significant role in the airline industry. They are the face of the airline as they assist passengers during their onboard experience. They ensure company safety protocol and procedures are in place before during and after flights. Traveling is a very stressful undertaking for many flyers, and that leaves a heavy burden for flight attendants to maintain a positive and encouraging environment for patrons.

A successful flight attendant should be capable of working under stressful conditions while maintaining a positive attitude. Understanding airline policy is crucial, and every flight attendant must ensure all policy is enforced to the passengers during the entire flying experience. Being able to make announcements and speak in front of a large group of people is another skill flight attendants should have. Attendants must be professional and able to handle a wide diversity of individuals. Being able to give clear and concise instructions is another valuable key.

Landing a flight attendant job will require a strong performance during your interview. Interviewers will be looking for the skills mentioned above, and more. Make sure you can give examples of when you remained calm throughout a stressful situation. Be able to highlight past experiences where you have enforced company policy no matter if you may have disagreed with the policy. Being able to work a flexible schedule is a must, and the interviewer needs to understand you are willing to adjust your flight schedule at any given notice. Lastly, being able to fly repetitively without feeling ill is a must. Be sure you have flown several times and can talk about your experiences to the interviewer.
