  1. You will actually get Stipend during training. But room and board is paid by AA. If you finish the Training the reward is a great career. The longer you stay the better it gets. Look around, why do you think we old Flight attendants is still around. life is good.

  2. You move to Texas for training, while in training they provide room/board. You just are not paid a $$$salary to attend training.

  3. It is a college and IF you PASS and IF you are selected you maybe offered a job. Have you been to a higher education school? Trade School, High School? Where did they pay you to go? I would love to find a school like that.

  4. I don’t understand the shock over the unpaid training. No company paid me while I went to college, let alone paid *for* my college education. Here, at least, the company is paying for the training.

  5. And again something explaining why not one single US carrier is within the TOP 20 range. Dumbness (speaking just one language) is enough for a multiethnic and international job. Shame on AA

  6. I went to nursing school. We spent several weeks unpaid in the different medical specialities learning the skills to work there. I paid tuition to attend school. Having passion for what you are training for is the first requirement of this career.

  7. I didn’t get paid for 6 months during student teaching, so get over it! It’s a great opportunity to see the world, and if you stay with it they have fairly decent schedules and pay!

  8. It is not paid because they are giving you a carrer that you haven’t studied for, you are going to be a professional flight attendant after you pass the training. t’s unpaid because they are giving you a carrer that you haven’t studied for, you are going to be a professional flight attendant after you pass the training. So it’s a good opportunity for someone who has not a professional title, and if you have one related to the work, you’ll probably have a better professional development.

  9. That’s better than a Pilot or AMT in which you have to spend tons of your own cash and show up already qualified…..don’t see the problem of free training.

  10. No Pay, no Play. I never heard of such a thing. I work for the Government Raytheon Missile System for this country.☆ I was paid for thirty days before hired.☆ A Big Corprate Company, like yours should be giving a Bonus for hire.☆ To work for your Company.Good luck. Fly the unfriendly skies.☆☆☆

  11. Everything sounds good until they said 6 1/2 weeks unpaid training?!?! Like you’ve gone mad or something? And I’m expected to
    Move to whatever base with no money??

  12. As a traveler I would feel extra assured to fly with flight attendants possessing the qualities you are looking for in hiring. May one expect that salaries and benefits will reflect the multi-faceted requirements for the positions so specifically outlined?

  13. Seriously so when I move to Texas for 6 1/2 weeks with no pay so who’s going to pay for rent and food no.

  14. Flight Attendant positions for American Airlines & Delta Airlines advertising that one does not have to be language qualified, however when looking for job listings indicate foreign language.
