from my experience...they usually will see how you talk and present yourself..and also your gestures while talking...to see whether you're elegant or not..because during my management interview,the lady interviewer kept looking at the way i was sitting..my hand movements, and the way i spokee..

Hey orangecake, i think you should. They responded to my email the very next day. Its best you try rather than assume they wont reply. It helps to lessen the anxiousness. hee. 8-)

Exactly wrong, my dear. Failure to be yourself will insure that you fail. What will happen is this. You will try to anticipate all the questions. You will try to give the "right" answers. You will come across as wooden and possibly false.

Much better to be yourself, to answer spontaneously. Sure, get prepared, but have no expectations when you walk into the interview. Just know that you have what it takes. After all, when you are on the flight, dealing with passengers, every interaction will be spontaneous. This is what they want... people who think on their feet, people who can speak, people who are courteous, people who are self aware. Think about it: What do you like best about the cabin crew when you are flying as a passenger? Openness ranks high with me.

You are so right SE, Sms, myself and others have tried to tell so many here that it is no good asking 'what kind of questions do they ask at the interview' or 'when will the next recruitment be?'. One needs to research and think about what the job entails; airlines searching for cabin crew look for people who can handle a lot of information and are able to comprehend and communicate.


The best course of action is therefore to prepare (not a list of questions and answers as SE points out) and wait as there is a rapid turnover of staff in this industry for a variety of reasons.

Babe, it's not about the talent it's about the passion. You can't show your talent to the interviewers, but im sure your passion will. GAMBATE
