Rick Ross has been all about showing off his private jet. Now, rather than just admiring it via Instagram, you may actually get to hop aboard that aircraft—as long as you’re an experienced flight attendant.
Da Boss is seeking to hire someone to help him out during trips on the customized Gulfstream G550, The Washington Post reported recently. The rapper posted an Instagram Story outlining the requirements of the job, along with what he’s looking for in a future employee.

“For the very first time, the boss Ricky Rozay is looking for his own personal flight attendant,” he says in the video. “Serious vibes only. Serious inquiries only.”
Along with prior flight experience, Ross is searching for a flight attendant with a positive vibe, a desire to travel the world, and a sense of professionalism. The right person for the job will also be able to cook and serve the food aboard the plane and know basic emergency procedures like CPR (Ross previously had a seizure on the jet, he said). For all of that, you’ll get paid $85,000 to $115,000 a year.
Those in the aviation industry aren’t sure whether that all adds up to a good gig, though. While the salary is more than what a commercial flight attendant would make, the Post noted, it runs less than what private staff usually earn. Jamie Gibson, a chef and private flight attendant, told the outlet that $200,000 a year would be more typical for someone based on the East or West Coast, plus benefits and other expenses. Alejandro Contreras, another flight attendant, said interested parties should also ask about per diems and travel expenses like hotels.
Then there’s everything you’ll have to do while on the plane. The Washington Post wrote that an aircraft like Ross’s could seat up to 19 passengers, which is a fair number of people to serve. Along with cooking, like the rapper mentioned, you’ll also be responsible for stocking the aircraft, making sure everything is up to snuff, and fulfilling the needs and desires of everyone on board.
“It sounds great on paper until you actually get down to the nitty-gritty and you have to fulfill those requests,” the commercial flight attendant Elizabeth Simpson told the newspaper.
If you’re a huge Ross fan, though, it may all be worth it.
