hello pink! =) had read abt the descriptions on ur experience yesterday. i wonder how u keep calm thru out,man! i got phased out on the 1-1 interview again, this my 2nd time. well, i guessed i get on better hands tis time den my first try thou(last mth's intake) . =)

few of ur questions in the mgmt rd was being asked at my 1-1. i dunno why. anyway, reli appreciate ur shares in here. i had been trying to source out whats mgmt rd is all abt.

i was being asked on what wld i do if a passenger tries to date you out after your flight.
talk abt a bad customer encounter i may have. (in which i din came across so far!)
what wld u do if you received a bad service.
any ideal how i shld had replied?

Hey People,

I'm so dissappointed with myself yesterday....:( What a letdown.

Managed to pass Round 1, Kebaya + Skincheck but failed at 1to1 interview.

During Kebaya, the lady was very nice. i was initially very stiff in my walking but she asked me to try being natural and i did! She mentioned that i am very fair and have a small face. LOL

During 1 to 1 interview, The questions asked were relatively tough:

1. Why do you want to make a career switch?
2. What does customer service means to you?
3. What are the negative aspects of being a Cabin crew?
4. Do you refer to work alone or as a team?
5. Are you a team player or team leader?
6. Describe yourself.
7. Is service on Air ot service on ground more important and why?

That's all i could recall........

I frumbled at Qn 3 :

"3. What are the negative aspects of being a Cabin crew?"

I answered that working irregular hours and that it can be positive in the sense that you must stay healthy and be very disciplined.

I guess this is what killed me....depending on how you interpret my answer. i guess i failed to explain clearly and maybe the interviewer might interpret it as i'm someone who prefers 9 to 5 job.

Actually what i meant was that to some people, it might be negative. However, for me, it is positive as i do not like deskbound job and thus i do not mind the irregular working hours. This can be positive because i will then"forced" myself to stay healthy, be healthy and maintain being disciplined.

Sigh!

Hey, but i'm happy for Pinklittlefigure who managed to pass all rounds.......You deserve it for putting in so much effort.

It was nice meeting Rainchocolate as well.........i hope you remember me. :)

Iwannafly and Mouse, lets work hard and try again........We'll soon succeed! :)
Yours Truly
