Cynthia

Do you have to give a presentation? Have you been given a topic for the presentation?

If so, make it visual and keep it reasonably short. Use pictures if you can. Preparing the presentation on pieces of card can be very effective.

The key would appear to be very positive and very confident in your delivery. This will come from as much rehearsing as you can.

Practice some of the answers for the inteview questions that you are likely to be asked
- What are your strengths?
- What are your weaknesses?
- Have you ever lost your temper?
- What is the best example of customer service that you have come across?
- What is the worst example of customer service that you have come across?

It may also be worth contacting any cabin crew people that you know - or can find on the internet to see if they have any tips.

I would echo the thoughts that what you wear will be very important and that a smart jacket and skirt are essential as well as having a polished pair of shoes.

I hope that this helps

Kind regards

I don't know what questions they will ask - does anyone else have any advice on this?

As regards dress my advice would be to dress in a similar way to that of a cabin crew - coordinating suit (ladies jacket and skirt, gentlemen jacket and trousers). Shoes tend to be flat soled or flat heels. Make doubly sure that you have polished your shoes.

Make sure that your nails are nicely clean and that you hair is tidy - getting it cut the day before would not do much harm.

Also make sure that you come across as confident and don't apologise about your appearance.

There is also an article on what to wear on our main website , written by a professional image consultant http://www.presentationmagazine.com/what_to_wear.htm

I hope that this helps

I think that most of these are very straight forward answers that you need to give.

Why do you want to be part of cabin crew? - you love helping people and you love to travel - give examples.
Tell us a time where you gave good customer service and achieved good results? - only you can do this.
Why should we pick you for this job? - ask your friends and family to give you three reasons of why they think that you should be good for this job.

Cabin Crew

I have been a FA for 7 years so I don't know how much it's changed but I can give you one key piece of advice: They will ask you how many times you have called in sick in the last year- say "zero." If you even say "once" you will absolutely not get hired. I have a friend in HR at our airline and I know this is true.

Good luck.

outcome of interview

hi there,
ive been on an interview today and i was expecting so much from it. But i didnt work out the way i thought it would. The recruiter told me that i have all the answers to their questions and i have the potential to become a cabin crew but i should be more fun and enthusiastic. He then advised me to come on another open day! But i personally think i wasnt lacking anything i was always myself and smiling the whole time. I mean u cannot keep on joking and laughing now and then. What should i do? I mean how can i improve for the next interview? please help me out. thanks

hi everybody am a new member

i have studied about flight attendant and i will give some important notes:

to be acceptebale in the interview what you should do:

get more info about the company who invite you for the interview
1- the base of the company
2- the management
3- the general director.... everything is from the net

always remember that the company has a very good reputation
has very good staff even it's not a large company.

-it will be better to give a presentation more than 3 times at home with your serious friend -introduce your self and give more details about your studies and about safety - Service ....

customer service can give you advantages.
try to get info about aircraft configurations- about Announcements...

good luck

C'mon People!

C'mon everyone, these questions are common sense questions! I mean when you go into an interview you cannot have a script of how things go! It should be you 100% no script, sure you can be prepared by thinking in advanced, what are my strenghts and what are my weaknesses, why do I want to be a flight attendant.

Remember airlines are not looking for people who are just looking for a freebie, for instance the answer I want to be a flight attendant for all the travelling I can do.

Hi, I have an Interview on tuesday with Aer Lingus too so I wish you the best of luck. I am just going to be myself, sell myself to them and tell them how much I have always wanted to work with such a great airline. I am going to come across confident happy and not too cocky if you get me. Sure will probably see u tuesday too and even though I am starting to prepare now, I still feel nervous which is only natural.

Just be yourself, there is a lot to the cabin crew interview as I have done them myself. The key is to just take part in the group activities and not just sit there with nothing to say, and in the personal interview make sure that you have examples of things like when you gave good customer service etc. They look for people that are confident and can be in a plane full of people for many hours, and who can cope in different situations. Anything and everything happens when you are in the air.

Jonny.
Also ask them questions about themselves and their family during the conversation, find out things that they enjoy and get them talking about it, this will distract them from what is going on and befor they know it they will be in the air smooth sailing. Works everytime.

Sincerely,

Blessed & Highly Favored

Emirates interview

Hello Everyone,
I have an interview with Emirates in 2 weeks time. I am really nervous and could do with some tips. I know that I need to act confident at all times and smile. I was also told to wear red lipstick...although it looks terrible on me!

Does anybody know what the Emirates interviews are like? Also do they ask you about currency conversions etc? I think I can answer the customer service based questions, but are there any shock questions I need to prepare for?

Also, what type of suit should I wear. My letter from them states that ladies need to wear business attire consisting of a knee length skirt but that is all it says about clothing. I want to stand out without looking like and idiot, so was thinking of a pencil skirt and jacket with a fitted shirt.

I have this image in my head that the room will be full of stunning girls with long slender legs and it looking like a miss world competition. If anyone can tell me what it is actually like please let me know.

Thank you in advance to anyone that posts back with useful advice, even if you just put my mind at rest about Miss World LOL!

Joy

Few Cabin Crew Interview Questions

Lot of questions have been asked in this forum thread regarding cabin crew interview questions that are generally asked in an open house interview, i have listed few below:

General Questions:
What are your strengths and weaknesses?

What are the main responsibilities in your current role?

What do you most enjoy about your current role?

What do you enjoy most about working as part of a team?

Can you describe a time when you've faced a difficult challenge and how you overcame it?

What interested you in this position?

What skills could you bring to this position?

Why do you want to change your current company and role?

Cabin Crew Job Specific Questions:

Why do you want to be a flight attendant? or Why did you come to this interview

A passengers needs to go to the restroom while you serve from the meal cart. It is a single aisle airplane and you are between the passenger and the restroom. What will you do?

What are the disadvantages of being a flight attendant?

What qualities do you like in your friend or co-worker and why?

What would you say to a first-time passenger or a passenger who is afraid to fly?

What would you do if you spilled a drink on a passenger while you are serving him/her?

What do you notice first when you see a flight attendant?

Hope this list helps, be careful when you answer these questions, it can make the difference between success and failure in the interview
Good Luck!
