Netflix looking to pay cabin crew staff 12.7 million baht

United States movie-streaming giant Netflix is prepared to pay US$385,000 (12.7 million baht) to secure the world’s best-trained cabin crew members for one of its private airlines.

The US subscription-based streaming platform announced on its platform yesterday that it is searching for “individuals with independent judgement, discretion, and exceptional customer service abilities and can work with little direction and a lot of self-motivation.”

According to Netflix, the salary ranges from US$60,000 to US$385,000, which is in line with the company’s compensation philosophy.

Netflix added that they base an employee’s salary on various “compensation factors,” including their background, experience, and skills. The position, located in San Jose, California, involves travel within the US and internationally.

“The Netflix Aviation department provides exceptional, safe, confidential air transportation,” and “helps Netflix reach the world more efficiently and effectively so the company can continue to create joy around the world.”

The responsibilities of the cabin crew attendant on a “Super Midsize Jet” will include inspecting emergency equipment in the cockpit, cabin, and gallery prior to takeoff.

They must also be able to lift items weighing up to 13.6 kilogrammes while loading and stocking the planes. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the average salary for flight attendants in the US is around US$62,000 per year.

A Netflix spokesperson stated that the company will not be providing any details on how it determines the salary of its flight attendants.

The company is scheduled to announce its earnings for the last three months of 2022.

Last year, Netflix claimed that it had gained 2.4 million subscribers in the quarter ending September, reversing a decrease in subscriber numbers.

Earlier in the year, the company experienced its first drop in paying customers in over a decade following a price increase in key markets.

In an effort to deal with slowing growth and increased competition, Netflix eliminated hundreds of jobs last year. The company has also introduced a new streaming option with advertisements and is taking steps to prevent password sharing in an effort to increase growth.
