    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Cathay Pacific (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Your basic "tell me about yourself" type interview. I had a phone screen with the HRBP and was asked to come in for an in person interview the next week. I met with that same HRBP and the VP of People. The conversation went well, or so I thought. I was told they would contact me about next steps the following week. I sent out thank you emails after the interview. I followed up with a quick check in email at the end of the following week since I did not hear anything either way. Followed up a week later and this past Monday a full month after my in person interview. Not a single reply or even the form email letting me know that I was not selected. If this is how they treat candidates I can only assume what the culture is like for employees.

    Average Interview

    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.

    Cabin Crew Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cathay Pacific (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Self introduction then discussion as a group. The facilitators spent most of their time observing how candidates interacted with each other, whether or not you participated in the group discussion as a team player, or if you were trying to take control and lead the group. Over all it was a fairly simple process. Just make sure you are on your best behavior at all times because they are observing your every move.

    After the first session, those that were successful got a call to come in for round 2. Round 2 was another group session and a 1 to 1 interview (more like 1 to 2 actually) with the facilitators.

    Successful candidates were called a few days after to go for their medical examination and English test.
