Today, December 7, marks the international day of civil aviation. For the holiday 5.ua talked with the flight attendant, who spoke about the myths and realities of this work. She shared how to become a flight attendant in Ukraine that you need to know and be able to, and also why it’s not quite a romantic profession, but on the contrary, very difficult

Help. Julia jarošík, 23. Born in Prison, lived his whole life in the village Choirs nearby. Now lives in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Now working in Emirates in the United Arab Emirates, before more year was a flight attendant in the Ukrainian UIA. She agreed to tell about all the benefits and cons of this profession

Julia, good afternoon. Tell us what You dream to become in childhood?

Hmm… I don’t know, a flight attendant for sure (laughs – ed.) Wanted to fly to America to work in the office and to wear everyday classic black suit with a shirt. Wanted to be a business lady. In the childhood it seemed to me that to fly the aircraft, it is something impossible for me. I thought it was very expensive, and always when flying the plane, I raised his head and looked after him and said, “well, someday I’ll fly”. Never thought I’d be to fly I sweat almost every day.

– Then how did it happen that You now fly?

– In fact, it’s very corny. I was looking for work after University and came across an ad on the site for job search. I just sent in my resume. Two days later I got a call and was invited for an interview. By this time I already had the opportunity to travel, but I never watched the work of flight attendants. I as a normal passenger took his seat and then somebody brought me to eat and I didn’t even remember what they are on view through the end of the flight. I didn’t see that a large part of the work and responsibility that was hiding behind those fragile shoulders, never suspected that this work is not so much “romantic” as a heavy.

– How was Your interview? Are there any tips?

I had two interviews at different airlines, and both were successful, and I am very happy, because working at the job that I love and which brings me pleasure. On the Internet you can read a lot of information on this subject, and the interview is typically similar. The main thing I want to say, just be yourself! Smile and behave as usual, no need to be nervous and worry, rest assured and don’t give up! Even if you did not get the job the first time, try again and again, don’t leave your dream, because if this is what you want then it’s worth it.

– What are the requirements to the candidate for the flight attendant?

– Each airline has its own criteria for the selection of personnel, but in General they are as follows: pleasant appearance, of average height and normal weight, no bad habits. In the open areas of the body should be free of scars and tattoos. Large overload is a serious health requirements of the conductor. Knowledge of English at Pre-Intermediate level and above. Generally preferred knowledge of multiple languages. Age from 21 to 30 years. The availability of higher education. Airlines also pay attention to citizenship and no criminal record.

Be a flight attendant must be able to swim?

– Some airlines have in their selection criteria the ability to swim, others don’t. If such a criterion, as for example at MAU, then you have to swim 50 metres without assistance.

– How was the training? What is most liked and what was hardest to get?

– The training was about two months. First, study the types of aircraft on which we fly, then all the emergency equipment of the aircraft, safety, first aid and service. After each phase, we write a test that tested our knowledge. If you gain less points than you need, the next day you have the opportunity to retake if you don’t perekladach, you’re repeating material from the other subgroup and write the test again if you don’t pass you don’t continue training further.

– What are the requirements for appearance of flight attendants?

– The form should be clean and ironed. All form elements must be present: all sorts of buckles, handkerchiefs, badges, etc. Hair should be clean, tightly gathered, should not touch the shirt collar, even if you have a penalty. It should be short and you need to stick hair on the front side, so it does not fall on the face. Makeup should be complete, ie: base, tone, Foundation, highlighter, mascara, eye shadow, arrows, and most importantly – red lipstick. Must also have a manicure according to the standards of the airline.

Red lipstick, not to be afraid. It is believed that the focus on lips is from the psychological side. Red lips and the smile of the flight attendant helps passengers to relax and not worry during the flight. If a person is afraid to fly, respectively, such psychological move passenger distraction from negative thoughts.

– You said that looking for a job right after College. What education do You have?

– Have a degree of higher education – master. Graduated from the national University “Ostrog Academy”. By profession – teacher of English and German language and world literature, interpreter. I studied on the second year of the course and worked, I had an individual plan of attendance.

– How many countries have you visited? What country and city you like more?

– So far visited quite a few countries, because most flights from MAU have been there and back, and if you have time to see the new place, its not much. Usually, after the flight you’re tired and want to relax, sometimes you get two or three nights and going on the flight, and everything you can dream then is the only bed that’s waiting for you at the hotel. From a small number of countries that were able to visit, like Vilnius, Madrid, Almaty, Astana and Minsk.

– But really no time to post-flight somewhere to walk?

– Yes, but such flights were not enough. There are trips for two days, then you can relax and go on a trip. Although when you have only one day – it’s very hard, because after you walk around town, go on trips, visit museums, galleries, cultural monuments, want after to just relax, but you have to go back to work. I don’t know how on long-haul flights, because I didn’t go to the types of aircraft that fly to new York, Toronto, Sri Lanka, Delhi, etc. I think there is a bit more time and opportunity to walk.

– Can You choose which country will go next flight? In General, how does the schedule of the flight attendants?

– In different airlines in different ways. In MAU we could not choose the country where we want to go next time. We could change each other, but it is very difficult, because you need to consider many factors: plaque for the month following the flight, must be time for vacation. We get the schedule for the month, however, sometimes the flights can change. We also have reserves at the airport when you put on the uniform you go to work and waiting at the airport, if you’re not going anywhere, you just go home when your time ends. We have our own reserves, so you have to be at home to do their business, but if you call, you should be ready to quickly assemble and perform flight. If large delays, flights can take off and deliver then others because you have extrawide then the chart is correct depending on the situation.

– What are your Hobbies? Find time for him?

– I love to play volleyball! Worked in the section about two-three years with breaks, played for the University team. Also go to the gym, not as often as I would like, but still find time for it. Actually have time to relax and meet with friends and get a hobby. All you need do is to invest time and not to be lazy. Sometimes you just want to stay in bed and sleep another, and another, and another… and then to sleep before the flight, and so on. In fact, this happens, well, personally for me, when you have a difficult flight and you’re exhausted, you just sleep, watch movies and you don’t want to do anything, to go anywhere.

– As with private life? Is there enough time for him? They say that the flight attendants are very alone in this matter – true or not?

– I think it depends on the person. Yes, we spend a lot of time in the air, but we also have a wonderful opportunity to meet people from all over the world. We get tired and sleep a lot after the flight, we a bit difficult to adapt to different time zones. Honestly, I never know what day it is what day it is. I can on Wednesday to answer that today is Sunday and Vice versa. I only know the number and where I’m going or how come, or what I have a day off (laughs – ed.) But how you plan your time plays a big role. However, I think it’s more myth than truth, that personal life not enough time. You can find time for something you really want. Yes it is a bit difficult, because you or fly, or sleep, or tired, or something, but then you can try to find a compromise.

– Did You have flight, when it was really scary?

– No, thank God everything was always good. Of course, the human factor is present always, sometimes can scare even the most trivial things. But the turbulence you get used to it, in some other situations we train. So, of course, not the fact that you do things that you don’t panic or be afraid, but you will behave when it is needed!

– Do You believe in omens? Perhaps something is required to do before flying?

– Do not really believe, but when you forget something and return home, always look in the mirror.

– Indeed, in all planes do not have seat number 13?

– In some airlines there. In MAU there, so you can buy your ticket (laughs – ed.)

– What were the negative incidents with passengers?

– This is usually the complaints of passengers on delay, that we need to buy food on Board that they were given boarding passes, and different parts of the plane that little space for legs, etc. Yes, it’s all there. And I think if you approach the problem correctly, it is possible to solve it.

– What benefits have flight attendants?

– The big plus is that we can buy tickets very cheaply at a discount, as well as for their parents and boyfriend or husband. Even if you have several days in a row the weekend, you can fly to Prague, Warsaw, Amsterdam, etc., Just to walk, to see the city for a day or two with your girlfriend or boyfriend to do a lot of wonderful photos, drink coffee, walk through the Paris and fly home.

– Tell us, what duties do You have during the flight?

– Greeted and accommodated passengers, arranged meals during the flight, ensure the safety of passengers and aircraft, to provide, if necessary, first aid, fill out the necessary documentation on Board.

– As far as the guys interested in this profession? Indeed, it is still a women’s profession?

More and more I meet guys the flight attendants. Most of them want to be pilots and not just dream, they go small steps toward your dream! Becoming a pilot is difficult, especially in material terms. I don’t know exactly how much you need to invest money in training and education, but it is quite expensive. So most of them start their career with flight attendants, then some of them manage to realize his dream. Personally, I don’t think it’s only women’s profession. It is physically hard work.

– And You haven’t thought about changing careers or perhaps about how to climb the corporate ladder in aviation?

– Do not imagine my life without flying. Of course, eventually you want something else. When you have visited every corner of this planet, I want to go home, to your house, your family. About the change until a thought, but to climb the corporate ladder, I think every flight attendant wants and aspires to it. With experience and with a certain number of flight hours, you can become senior flight attendant, or supervisor, also work in business and first class.
