Not good enough, apparently, as I just got the e-mail stating that I was not selected for a second interview.
Thank you for interviewing for the Flight Attendant position. We enjoyed meeting with you to discuss your skills and interest, and while your background is impressive, an invitation to attend the Panel 2 interviews will not be extended at this time.
Despite the fact that you were not selected for this position, we wanted to thank you for your interest.
Best wishes in your future career!
I have to confess, I thought I had a GREAT interview. I flew in on CO1836, and got to the ExpressJet headquarters totally loose, at ease, and not very nervous...my job at an interview is to do the best job being Britt SHUPirate1 as I can, and if that's not good enough for them, or they have bigger plans for me, so be it. I asked plenty of questions during the seminar that the head recruiter made, but pulled a few punches, waiting for my actual interview for those, as the head recruiter didn't seem overly receptive to my questions.
I felt like I absolutely FLOORED Angela, the woman who actually interviewed me. I sincerely hope she knows somebody who reads this board, as she was absolutely OUTSTANDING! The time management freak within me convinced me to ask about those 69 aircraft, the rejected Tentative Agreement, and how negotiations were going, as if the answers were not satisfactory for me, I was planning on simply saying that I was no longer interested right there. She clearly knew what was going on with the company. Number one, ExpressJet, not Continental, are the leaseholders on those 69 aircraft, and number two (this is the part that REALLY floored me) all 69 aircraft are ERJ-145XRs, which, unlike the ERJ-135's and, to some extent, the standard ERJ-145's, will be relatively easy to place. Additionally, and this impressed me, ExpressJet did not furlough A SINGLE FLIGHT ATTENDANT as a result of 9/11. As for the T/A, she stated that the other flight attendants basically wanted more time off...unfortunately for them, they seem to have miscalculated.
All in all, reading between the lines, I couldn't help but read "overqualified" in here, and I made a mistake in selling how well I have done with my basketball contracting. As a result, I sent back an e-mail thanking the lead recruiter, and asking if my resume and information could be passed along if another position she felt would be more appropriate for me opened up. I cannot be upset with myself, as I feel I have nothing to be ashamed of. As I said, I did the best job of being Britt SHUPirate1 as I can, and either that wasn't good enough for them, or they thought that was too good for them and they just have bigger plans for me.
I'd like to thank everybody on here for their support, and I'd further like everybody to know that, despite turning me down, ExpressJet is a class act as an airline, and I would have looked forward to working for them.
