If you’re one of those whose passion triumph the skies (literally) and dream of traveling the world through stewardship, this article is dedicated to you.
Why should I read, you may ask.
Many of us whom shared the same dream might have attended at least one of of those walk-in interviews (or exclusive ones) and can totally relate to this. For those who are cabin crew interview virgins, this might be able to prep you for what’s to come.
Having attended one interview myself, the cabin crew interview experience was indeed an interesting one. Well, at least that’s the case for me. There are several stages that one needs to go through before securing the position, which also means that the whole interview thingamajig will consume an entire day (provided that you made it through all stages).
Upon arriving at the venue, you’ll see tonnes of hopeful candidates in queue. Take the opportunity to get to know some of them while waiting in line because it’s always good to have a friend than foe (plus, you’ll never know if you’re being watched).
So, here are 7 types of cabin crew candidates you’ll encounter at the interview:
1. The chatty and know-it-all type
These are the ones who bring the ice walls down and come up with conversational topics whenever possible. They’re also the bunch who somehow know what the interviewers would look for in a cabin crew.
2. The carefree type
The only thing that comes to their mind is “YOLO” and to wing it since they wouldn’t mind making it to the final stage. The cabin crew interview experience alone is good enough for them.
3. The “I’m never giving up” type
They’re the ones who want to be a flight attendant more than anyone else in the room. Despite failing the interview numerous times, that didn’t deter them from trying until they get the job. It’s good to interact with these fighters as they’ll share their experience and tips with you.
4. The model material type
While waiting in line, you surely take notice and scrutinize the rest of the candidates. There’ll be guys who are properly groomed with well-built figures in a fitting blouse, as well as ladies who are the total package, you’ll wonder why you’re even here to begin with.
5. The “beat my face to the gods” type
No shade to the ladies who do but sometimes, you just got to tone it down a little. It’s good that you are putting some effort to look good but I bet the interviewers from the skin check stage will appreciate those who came with light make-up instead.
6. The newbie type
Also known as the first timers. They did their homework, showed up early and be as fully prepared as possible for the interview. Since they’ve never really experienced the interview themselves, they will talk to as many people as possible for some extra tips that might come in handy during times of need.
7. The egoistical type
Their true colors will blind you during the group activity stage. You are bound to meet such people whom might end up as your colleague once you survive through all stages of the cabin crew interview. So, it is important you listen and respect others. If their opinions don’t matter, neither should yours.
