Ask the Recruiter

 
Question:

In a previous newsletter, you mentioned that the failure rate at flight attendant training is quite high. I would like to know how many people actually make it through (percentages). Thank-you. 


Answer:


Approximately 60 percent of new-hires make it through new-hire training and, of those, approximately 50 percent make it through their first year with the company. The high attrition rate is due to a combination of individuals quitting and those that are let go by the company.
 
The above statistics are industry-wide. Airlines with the highest number of flight attendants have the highest turnover rates.
 
Since the airlines claim that only 1 out of every 100 applicants is chosen for the flight attendant position, it's easy to see why they're in a hiring mode more often than not.
 
Another interesting fact is that job satisfaction is quite high for those that make it past the first year.

Good luck!
