Becoming a flight attendant is not just a regular job, it's also a lifestyle choice. During your travels you will visit lots of exotic new places, make new friends and live a life on the move. But that doesn't mean you will lose contact with your family and friends at home, since you will get lots of time-off in between your shifts.
As a flight attendant you will work somewhere around 15 days per month. As you start working you will need to be flexible with your time (expect to be working on weekends), as the airline company will set your schedule based on their needs. As you gain seniority you will also gain the privilege of setting up your own schedule. You will usually fly between 75-100 hours per month in total. The schedule of a flight attendant is less packed than a normal 9 to 5 job, and once you gain seniority you will also be much more flexible with your time management.
Most airline companies don't place any restrictions on the age of the candidates, so as long as you're an adult don't let your age stop you from applying to a job opening. There are flight attendants that work even in their fifties, and their experience is of great value during the flight.
Airline companies put a set of operational and safety height requirements in order to apply for the job, however as long as you can safely reach for the handbags above the passenger seats you should be fine. Also abnormally tall persons might have a problem applying for the job since you need to be able to move unhindered through the passengers cabin without fear of bumping your head. There are also vision requirements, but as long as your vision is correctable trough glasses or lenses it won't be a problem.
The airline industry is strongly regulated and security is paramount for the safety of both passengers and crew, so it's not uncommon for the employer to do a background check on prospective candidates. Small misdemeanor charges aren't a problem, only people with a strong criminal record get rejected.
The requirement in order to become a flight attendant is usually a high school diploma. A college degree in tourism, public relations, business or social science can help you, but is surely not a requirement.
No formal training is required in order to apply for a flight attendant position. Once you get hired, you will be directed to a flight attendant training facility run by your airline company where you will learn emergency procedures such as evacuating an aircraft, operating emergency equipment, and administering first aid and also receive specific instruction on flight regulations, company operations, and job duties.
Work experience in the services sector of the economy is a welcome addition to your resume, however, it is not a requirement. If you are resourceful, have good communications skills and are willing to learn, you can land your first job as a flight attendant.
In the past the airline services industry was heavily biased towards hiring female candidates, not so today. Every year the number of male flight attendants is growing and it is predicted that this trend will continue. Being a male candidate will not hinder you in any way on your journey to become a flight attendant.
Getting a job as a flight attendant is not a modelling contest, those days are long gone and the majority of airline companies no longer adhere to discriminatory body standards. However, once you get hired it is expected of you to take care of your appearance, since you become the front line representative of the airline that hired you.
Flight attendant salaries range from $28k to $79k per year in the United States, depending on your tenure. The career of cabin crew personnel is a dynamic one and promotions come fast.
Travel expenses during your travels, including food and accommodation, will be covered by your airline company. During your stopovers you will stay in a hotel room, sometimes share the accommodation with a colleague. The quality of the accommodation can range from 3 to 5 star hotels, depending on the airline company that you fly with.
