OK folks we have all had our fun here including me ribbing Funky Punk about his English but this thread is descending into a fight so can you all get back on topic.

Try considering the culture of Cathay Pacific airways and what they need specific to their routes along with how best to plan your application.

Thanks for your co-operation.

I think if you are so afraid of bombs in Colombo you shouldn't even think of applying for any Flight Attendant job in the first place


A very good point; there are bombs and terrorists attactks that have and alas will take place elsewhere. We all know about 9/11 the Madrid bombings, 7, July bombings on the London Underground and attempted bombings in London shortly afterwards.

What many of you will not realize due to your age is; Britain has had terrorism on it's doorstep as far back as I can remember owing to its prescence in Northern Ireland. I am of course talking about the IRA - have a look at the BBC website and search you will find plenty of information there.

In short terrorism and attacks can happen anywhere, Colombo is just one place among many.


:roll: exactly..it can happen anywhere all over the world even on doorsteps.

pls expect many non singaporeans here


:shock: malaysia passport?? I thought CX's requirement is that we have to be singaporean and have the rights live in singapore in order to be eligible to apply? or u're a singapore PR now? :???: or are you talking about SIA? :-| but komi u r going to CX interview with me right? We're on the same slot.

But if they are lenient towards malaysian applying even though their requirement is that u must be a singaporean and have the rights to live in singapore. i hope they are not so strict and be lenient during the interview then so all of us get the job. *wishing upon a shooting star* :lol: :lol: :lol:

anyway guys.. lets discuss abt this..


What procedures did you go through for the Flight Attendant position at Cathay Pacific?

There are 3 rounds of selection procedures:

1. Individual Interview: I was asked to give a self-introduction, and the reason why I would apply for this job. It took about 5-8 minutes.

2. Group Interview with 6-8 people: we were given a scenario, e.g. an unexpected case on the flight. We needed to discuss on the topic and draw up the best solution.

3. Panel Interview: I was interviewed by 3 interviewers. The questions were more specific and focused on how I present myself to be suitable for being a Flight Attendant, and what was my prospect and expectation in developing my career. It took about 15-20 minutes.


thought of any self intro words yet? :lol:

1. Tell them who you are.

2. Why you are applying for the job.

3. Why you are giving up your present job if you have one even if it is one you enjoy but avoid slagging-off your employer.

4. Mention your interests and hobbies, social life what problems you may have encountered and how you dealt with it (especially if work was a factor; being a flight attendant or pilot can drastically affect someboby's marriage or relationship in view of the life-style.)

Just a few ideas there could be many more, you will have to cut it down to a few sentences but remember to stick to the point.

Always best to, even if you don't stick to the original words it will give you 'fuel' which help you avoid 'freezing up' which some interviewers may interpret as lack of interest.

Although when you prepare a speech or job application many things seem so obvious - but that is what helps you remember (Compare reading a book on your favourite subjects).
