Netflix are offering $385,000 for a flight attendant.

Netflix is hiring a flight attendant for one of its private jets - with the successful applicant being paid as much as $385,000 (313,538) a year.

The streaming giant says it is looking for candidates with "independent judgement, discretion and outstanding customer service skills".

They should also be able to "operate with little direction and a lot of self-motivation."

Last year Netflix cut hundreds of jobs after a fall in subscriber numbers."The overall market range for this role is typically $60,000 - $385,000. This market range is based on total compensation (vs only base salary), which is in line with our compensation philosophy," Netflix said in a job listing on its website.

The company also said it determines an employee's salary by considering "compensation factors" such as their background, experience and skills.

The role - based in San Jose, California - requires travel in and beyond the US.

"The Netflix Aviation department provides exceptional, safe, confidential air transportation," it said.

The advert added that the team "helps Netflix reach the world more efficiently and effectively so the company can continue to create joy around the world."

The attendant's duties on a "Super Midsize Jet" will include inspecting emergency equipment in the cockpit, cabin and gallery before takeoff.

They will also have to be able to lift items as heavy as 13.6kg (30lb) when loading and stocking planes.

The average salary for flight attendants in the US is just over $62,000 a year, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

When contacted by the BBC, a Netflix spokesperson said the company "will not be commenting" on the details of how it calculates the salary of its flight attendants.

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

Last year Netflix said it had added 2.4 million households to its subscriber base in the three months to the end of September, reversing a decline in subscriber numbers.

Earlier in the year the company revealed its first fall in paying customers in more than a decade after raising prices in key markets.

Hit shows, including Stranger Things and Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story helped attract viewers back to the service.

Netflix cut hundreds of jobs last year as it grappled with slowing growth and increased competition.

The firm has also launched a new streaming option with advertisements and is cracking down on password sharing as it tries to boost growth.

This is purely an attempt of Netflix to avoid California's new salary transparency laws. No stew makes anywhere near that kind of salary. Not even their pilots! What Netflix likely did was take a salary range of their entire workforce to comply with the new law. A more typical avg corporte fa salary in the US is ~120k if you look at the NBAA salary surveys for large cabin jets.

The side effect of this sensational news is now you'll have a bunch of stews inflating their self worth when they're not even required to be onboard by regulation. Even flexjet knows this by titling their job as a "cabin server" to serve the guests and that is all.

Thanks for the info falcon10 . Since I live/work in Spain, our "reality" is very different from the US.
To me, this is another marketing strategy from NETFLIX, as it has been taken by storm in social media and news worldwide.
