my relative has been working for CX for 9 years and now she is a flight pursur. she was a former silkair stewardess. she also applied for SIA after working for SilkAir but she failed the kebaya test due to some scars.

The another person i know, she join SIA after working for SilkAir. Although she was average looking, she made it. and i think it is because of her experience and her pleasant personality.

I think CX still recruit Singaporean as my friend's sister joined CX last year. She applied through the net.

Sometimes they look for Malay, Thai and Tagalog speaking crew,definitely, Hong Kongers cant speak those languages.

Thanks..

IS there any FLIGHT ATTENDANT here???

please tell us abt ur experience and interview.

Hi Donno,

I had emailed and checked with CX.
They mentioned that they will only recruit pp who possess Right of Abode in Hong Kong (showing proof of your permanent resident status) AND "Kindly note that our recruitment activities and pre-job training will be conducted entirely in Hong Kong, whose expenses shall be borne by the job applicant"

Cheers!
Paige :wink:

Paige,
That information is easily available on Cathay Pacific's website which includes the countries in which they are currently recruiting (last time I looked the UK was one). I did copy paste the criteria on page 320 funny how donno did not see it.

IF you ask me, Saint, VC and Plavt have crossed the line. This is more than straight-talking. More like a personal attack.
Tsk tsk...shame shame.

There was no personal attack it is just throughout the thread donno and a few others have shown just how thick they are by asking questions to which they could easily find the answers themselves.

Since you PM'd me several times I find it ironic that you are now making the remarks you are.

Well certainly, i was new to begin with and like many others i've posted certain qns about my inadequate swimming techniques and yes the replies given, though blunt, helped me alot and worked my neurons pretty well.

However, my earlier comment was with regards to an isolated event.... About how somebody started with some not soo subtle comments about "missing parameters" and the next one who came along commented about "IQ". C'mon LAH..anyone dense enough can sense how unfriendly and acidic those words are.

Which is why sthg prickly inside me aka "conscience" prompted me to post a reply addressing this issue. I hope i had clarified things well enough and also helpd bring you back on track about what this discussion is...your words. At times some ppl on this forum come across as rather lofty individuals.

my 2 cents worth,
MK

Menaquinone,

The reason for the harsh words is that sometimes the questions and the conversation become ridiculous. Some time back there was one particular poster that was adamant you did not have to be able to swim and that the swimming test was a 'float' test. I was at first quite cordial and tried to explain why they have a swimming test but he did not listen and persisted in posting what could justly be called absurd replies. How can you describe somebody like that? I am sure you know that such person is simply being stupid. Would you not agree it silly to ask people on this forum a question to which you can find the answer yourself?

I do not like to be ageist but most of you are very young and you have facilities that I did not. When I was your age there were no computers, video cassette recorders, mobile phones, walkmans, CD players, cell phones (hand phones) and colour television was invented when I was at High School. You have a computer with stacks of information at your finger tips so what is stopping anybody looking at the websites of various airlines? I am sorry but people are being lazy. Equally those that never bother visiting the airport and spending some time there. Why not? Have you never noticed the cabin crew know the place inside out?

Make no mistake if the recruitment do not say the same things as certain other posters along with myself have said here they will certainly think the same. Imagine reading an application form that says something to the effect of I do not have the relevant qualifications but and written in bad English to boot.

Plavt.

Just to clarify in case.

I never meant to be rude to people askin INTELLIGENT questions like, roughly what kind of questions they ask and how to ans them appropriately. or dicussions on how to have a better postures, gestures, and speaking techniques.

I believe that all these are better questions to ask than questions that I had listed which had been repeating since.... PAGE 1. 300+ pages and people still repeat.

even if you didn't read the queries which were asked, Info is stated on the newspaper and website. Why ask the redundant questions again? that really shows how well you comprehend things.

Flaming is inevitable in forums, but why do people get flamed? Coz they ask silly questions. like I HAVE A DEGREE but is a private degree, so what do i write in my HIGHEST qualification? (no exact quote)

Silly? U decide. sorry to the person, but it was the joke of the night for me and my friends. and we laughed for a few more days.

I wonder how the people here, have the patience to answer the same questions and and give tactful answers to those DUHHZZZ questions. I salute to you guys.

anyway, you all can still keep us entertained if you want. :>
