Yes they are so efficient, reply next day~ You will get a call soon, dont worry~ should be a lady saying you have been invited for an assessment day in early dec, and confirming again your asian language, can you reach 208cm, visas status.

I am from Hong Kong, what about you?

I am holding a partner visas and I been to UK for 11 years now, so I will be applying citizenship next year~ To be honest, I dont think they will help to apply work visas as its a junior position.

I think the regulation in UK, you have to earn at least 20k a year for the requirement of a work visas, which wont be the case for CX FA~

How long have you been to UK?

But quesiton is, in hong kong they was hiring UK base Crew . Because they will help them to apply visa.
I been study in here for 8 years. but i back to hongkong afterwards,now i m holding working visa in here but will be exp. in 2013~ so i wanna know will they help me apply it?
where a u living in now? london? i living near royal Victoria.

I think that will be different case, now you are applying uk base in london, not hk. and the legislation possibly change a lot. I used to applying assistant manager position in hotel and ask them if they will do me a work visas, but they said the chance is very low.

I think after your work visas expired you can apply for UK Citizenship, cant you? How long have you been back to HK after 8 years and then you came back to UK? if its not too long, then you are eligible to apply for citizenship as you been here 10 years.

I live near vauxhall.

Here is my email, we can chat on msn.

Hi,

Which date is your assessment? Mine is on the 6th.

The lady only ask me to bring the passport and 2 photos with business dress, thats it. I believe the reference letters wont be needed until the 2nd stage of the interview.

Are you chinese?

My assessment is on the 7th unfortunately.

Hmmm I read on the other forums that you need to bring 2x reference? That's why I wasn't so sure, needed confirmation from others that may have had a similar call.

Yeah Chinese (BBC)

Good to meet you here. Would you mind to share with us hows like on the first stage please?

Did they tell you the reason why you didnt pass the 2nd? What did they ask you on the 2nd?

sure, no problem.

first there is a test for the arm reach, and you can tiptoe, if anyone is wondering.
then they will show you a presentation about cathay pacific. after, the group will be divided into 2, we will be given a topic and one group will be for and one group will be against the chosen topic. everyone will have to give a 2 minute speech on their opinion on the topic.
then, if i remember correctly, we need to fill in the application form and visa form if needed, show them certificates/documents, then one by one, we will have a 1-to-1 interview in your asian language.

if you get selected for the 2nd interview, which will be in january some time, they will ask you to fill in a questionnaire online. at the 2nd interview, there will be an english reading and listening test on a computer, a 2-to-1 or 1-to-1 interview.

and i read online, that the next stage after that would be the medical examination, which i didnt get through to.

if they reject you, they will send you an email and say that there is no further advice given on why you weren't selected. but i think i failed on being too selfish in my answers, not being customer focused and hesistating too much haha

hope you guys will find this useful.

That is a very useful information.

I would like to ask, on the group work 2 min speech, is it like you have to stand on a stage or something and speak to everyone like a presentation in uni? Last year has any of you repeat the similar speech after the other finish on the same topic? Does the judge pick a person to do the speech?

On the language bit, what does it involve?

On 2nd stage, hows the difficulties on the english test? what kind of question have they asked you on the 1-1 or 2-1 interview?

I hope you can make it this year~~~~ Best best of luck~

Hi, what date is your interview? Mine is on the 6th.

It shouldnt be hard to find the interview location, we should be able to see a bunch of chinese gathering in business dress anyway. Go to Terminal 3, look for virgin check in desk, then go left until you see a lift. just wait there.

Pauline in Romford, United Kingdom said: for group assessment, both groups work together at differents ends of a long business meeting table, when giving the speech, you just stand, there's isn't a stage to stand =P normally just from left to right. each person only gets 2 minutes so that everyone can say something different

for the language test, i got asked 'why is the cathay pacific flight attendants different to any other airlines' and 'why do i think what i studied is relevant to this job' plus others that i have forgotten haha sorry, just seeing how fluent your asian language is really, and she also asks if you can read a passage in chinese too, but i don't think it matters if you can't

for the second stage, some of the questions were related to the online questionnaire, the rest were regular interview questions, like your strengths and weaknesses, what you think is customer service etc etc

the reading and listening test i found very easy, i think that's because i'm a BBC thou haha

hope this helps, i hope i get in this year too!

This information definitely help a lot~ Probably need to do some homework now.. haha~

Thanks again! Probably will msg you again when i have question.

Otherwise see you on the day!

For the language test part, that is very helpful indeed for the info, however I just want to ask, what was your response to them questions??
Sounds silly to ask did you get to 2nd stage?? If so how long did you have to wait for a reply?

Thank you Pauline for sharing you experience. That is very detailed and helpful! May I ask if there was a self introduction before the group discussion? If there was, how many minutes did they provide?
Thank you again for answering so many questions for us!
