If I'm not wrong, it's a 1-to-1 interview, with a passage to read also?


Congrats to all who passed to the next round.

In the next round, when you reach the venue, they will pass you forms to fill up, including so-called working permit form in HK for your training. Once you have completed all the forms, each of you will go for your passage reading, followed by 1-to-1 interview. The questions they asked you are very typical, just like management round interview in SQ. A few questions they asked me as I remembered:
- What is your current job?
- Why do you want to be a cabin crew?
- What do you know about this job?
- etc

If they really like you, during my time, they will let you know about how to go for medical check-up, which means you pass the interview! If not, they will pass you a card saying that they will put you under consideration and will contact you within few weeks' time. Anyway, just smile and smile... but remember, don't overuse body language when you talk.

Good luck!

Heard they are only taking in 20 Flight attendants this time.
And the reading round will consist of reading from a passage and introducing a product in your mother tongue.

Guys just know what you are getting yourself into - its a tough job serving Singaporeans and honkies on turn-around flights.Your schdule is Sin-Hkg-Sin all day long! and have to ut up with ''SQ is bettet'' comments etc..Then you will fly to Sri Lanka-Sin.My point is: Be serious and comitted if you are applying, don't waste their time and resources.

i think they're aware of that...not sure..
but being in the service industry myself...i've encounter pple from everywhere..not jus hk n Singapore...

ppl from everywhere are getting more demanding about the service associates...thats y cathay have this service from the heart motto...its very true and this job is not about a gd paycheck... :)
