Pretty much what everyone else said. Interviewing for any job can be stressful and will undoubtedly induce nervousness. The thing with flight attendant position is, they want to know that you can still be "the face" of the airline, even given stressful situations. That's what sets flight attendants apart from everyone else that "serves drinks/food" - even at 30,000ft.
Yes, you are responsible for the safety of those you serve. But in reality (and of course, in good hope), serving drinks and food is all you will have to do. What you must remember, however, is that whenever you do this, keep in mind that flight attendants are the people who customers see the most. Check in? maybe 10 mins; TSA
? Another 10 mins. Gate agents? 5 minutes would be a stretch. Pilots? Almost never - at least not inflight. Face it: the flight attendants are the people you will interact with the most on your flight experience (as a passenger). Therefore, it is up to us to make the most of a good or bad situation. And that is what airlines are looking for.
It is imperative that you be yourself. And it's equally important that you follow your employer's guidelines for efficient, friendly, and exemplary service in the sky. If you are not willing or able to handle the responsibility (both in terms of safety and customer service), then this is not the industry for you. But if you can handle it, then all I have to say is GOOD LUCK! It's a wonderful job to have, and an equally wonderful opportunity to do things you ordinarily wouldn't do (in my former
life, I used to work a 9-5 job..I will never look back).
. You'll do well, just be cool. Cheers,
