Hey forum-ers, ,

Why is the forum becoming so quiet?
Make some noise and share with us your experience during the interview.
Would love to hear it.
And for those attending the interview later, including me,
All the best & GOOD LUCK(S)

:DDDDD

haha.. ya.. why the sudden so quiet?

well, i went for my interview yest. and all i can say is, failure~~ dont think i will make it, so wont put so much hope for a return call for 2nd rd interview.

But i am reali impressed by BA ccs' warm hospitalities and their professionalism, in terms of their standard of interview. Thumbs up!! :D :D

Mind sharing in details how does the interview goes like?
And what kind of questions did they ask you?

it's only a 20 min interview and you be inside a rm with 2 other interviewers and their interviewees. Well, it's kinda distracting cos you can hear other ppl talking and reading the passage.

First the interviewer will pick a passage for u to read in eng and chin. then she will hold a short interview in chin, like asking u wats ur job n job scope. Then she will read out a passage normally, you wil hear in plane, eg. 'ladies n gents, we will be arriving shanghai airport, the seat belt sign will be switch on in 20 mins time, and if u nid to use the toilet, pls use asap. once seat belt sign is switch on, pls return to ur seat. thank you', and u will have to translate in chin.

I think the more diff part is the passage reading in chin cos u never know which word u duno hw to read even if u are so prepared.

my passage is abt economy. i overheard another girl reading medicine stuffs.

i hope it helps abit :D :D All the best!!!

Hi shenoes

will u be given abit of time to read thru the passage once first? or you will need to dive straight into the passage once u sit down?

u will be given enough time for u to read and to prepare ur translation. They wont hurry you or give u black face. Like I said, they are very friendly and patient :D . Very professional.

thanks shenoes. Hmm how about the passage reading? r u supposed to read it once u sit down? or u may be allowed like1-2mins to run through it urself then proceed to reading it aloud?
