Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Cathay Pacific.

Interview

At the first group interview, the recruitment team will observe you, how you interact in a group, if you're friendly, nice attitude, and easy to talk to. They will first do an introduction of the company, flight attendant life, benefits and salary. After the introduction, they will divide into small groups of 5-7. Groups will take turn to do interview (about you, why you want to be FA...), language test (very easy, they talk to you in your language and make you read a small paragraph), and reach test (able to reach a sticky note on the wall, you can tiptoe).
Second interview is one on one with more questions about your experience, your future goals, customer service... (do your research and you'll be fine)
After you pass the second interview, they will schedule you to do health and drug test (very strict) and computer test (which if you fail, you can retake it).
Overall process took about 3 weeks. It wasn't that hard.

After that, they will put every group into a conference room for group activity.

Also, they ask you to choose the day that you can come to do a group interview. On the interview day, the company did a presentation about their company history, their requirements, their selection processes, and their training programs. After the presentation finished, they divided you into a group, and you did an arm reach test along with language assessment. Then each group was called for a group interview.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Cathay Pacific in August 2015.

    Interview

    First send your resume.if they will reply you will received a call from them an invitation for the first session. 1hour introduction of the company and few mins of question and answer for the FA's. They will separate you by group for height measurement , language test and group interview. I've been to some of the group interviews for some reason I don't like the way CX conduct their group interviews not because I didn't passed the second time is because I feel like young applicants are being aggressive and as far as I know you don't need to be quite but don't over power or interrupt if someone is giving opinions .and the one who do these are the one who gets invited for the second interview or passed all the screening. Any how they will validate your parking and your off to go!wait for the call if you are invited for the second interview. You will receive a an email it means you didn't make it try again after 6 months👍🏼

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cathay Pacific (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    After 3 days of sending my resume, I received a call from cathay pacific company said I got the chance to the first group interview. First they give a presentation of the company's history, what is this job about, and the requirements. You will be giving a language test (one asian language) and the reach test which is 208cm hand touch. After that, we were divided into three groups and each one has about 10 people. We were the last one. The group interview was in another room, and there were two base hiring people. They gave us a question and let us talk about it. First brainstorm for 2 mins, and then group discuss for 7 mins. In the discussing process, the recruiters would not interrupt, they were just observing. After that, we gave a conclusion. Then we were done for that day. We were told that we will be receiving email or phone call, which indicates you will go to the second interview or not. And I received the phone call 3 days later. I am preparing for the second interview.
