Good luck!

I can also speak in Cantonese as well as English, but still a little nervous about the language test.

Do you live in London? I assumed so as it says underneath your name.

Just wondering, how tall are you?

HEy Tina!

Aw, thanks! Yeah, I tried it, but I wasn't sure whether I was doing it right, need to practise BIG TIME!

Yeah, it seems none of us are on the same date! Wish we were, that would be so funny! Shows how small the world is, haha!

Weird question, What shoes would you's be wearing?

And when are you going down to London, Tina?

Well at first I wasn't too fussed with what I wore although smart of course. But now you guys are all saying wear suit..so....I will be suit hunting tomorrow. Are you wearing a skirt suit? I will find a pair of court shoes to go with it. I'm not sure if Cathay provide shoes for Cabin Crew but in my last airline I wore the shoes I bought for interview to work, so it didn't go to waste. Argh gona spend a fortune now!

I will go down to London on the day. It takes 1.5hrs to 2 hrs from where I live so it's not too bad. What about you? You have morning interview right?

Yeah, I was thinking to myself, should I wear a skirt suit, because their uniform is like skirt suit, I know that sounds weird, but does it make sense? Sort of relate to it all. But I guess it shouldn't matter as long as you look pretty smart, then it's all cool. Well, I hope, lol!

I thought they would have, just so everyone looks about the same, not to lose their unique-ness, but uniform, to unify them, right? So I suppose they would provide shoes!?

I know, I don't want to break my bank, lol! So I keep pondering about what shoes to wear!.. I mean, I would love to wear flats, but I think it's best to wear court shoes? But I'm scared that I might not walk in them properly, so I best practise that too.. Lol! Don't want to look clumsy.

Aw, that's cool, Preston is near Manchester, right?

I'm going down like a few days before, because mine's in the morning at nine! What time is your assessment?

Double checking again, what documents have you been asked to bring a long with you?

And what bag are you taking with you!? Lol! Sorry, many questions!

Have you bought some court shoes? Only have a few days to practise! Not use to wearing heels? I wore a skirt suit last time so will again I think. Bag? Um last time a bought a bag specifically for it but this time just a black bag.

No I don't actually live in Preston, for some reason my location keeps changing. I live near Cambridge. A few days before?? Do you have friends/family there?

Take Passport,HKID, 2 x passport photos. Oh are you BBC?

You been thinking of interview questions??

sc1118 yours on the 22nd right? will you give me an update of what the day will be like if you don't mind.

Hi both,

Yes I have attended interview before. 3 interviews altogether. 2 for the same company one for a different one. Don't think it can be any harder than my last interview (which I passed). Just remember to prepare for the types of questions they are going to ask. Have you guys thought about it? It's harder for me now because I have to give examples from experience in the air as oppose to a customer service role in any job.

manger1208: Mine is in the afternoon. You live in London right? So I'm guessing you'll get the tube there that day?

HEy Tina,

Yeah, I have friends over in London, but the night before, I am going to book myself into a hotel so am close to the place, the day before, I am planning to check out the place, like how to get there and stuff, because my sense of direction isn't that great.. And my luck is just about the same, lol!

I am not a BBC, but people do class me as a BBC, because I was born in Hong Kong and came over when I was really young.

Yeah, been thinking of the interview questions, I mean, even though it is a group assessment, I'm guessing there will be one to one time, so I thought I would prepare just in case things came up.

Manger1208, I'm so glad you need pracitising as well, then I wouldn't look too out of place, lol! Yeah, my group assessment is on the 22ND, will give you an update ASAP, because I will be coming back from London on the day..

Um hums, this is the first time for me.

How long do you's think it would last?

That's great that you are being so prepared. It's pretty straight forward to teminal 3. It'a at zone B... if you are going into the building from outside (eg getting taxi there) then go through doors at Zone A and turn right and zone B is right ahead.

From what i know from reading forums there isnt a group assesment as such but it may have changed for us now. There is definitely a TWO on one interview not 1-1. Don't worry, just make sure you keep eye contact with BOTH interviewers and not just the one asking you questions.

Hmm I remember it being a long day, at least 4-5 hours but since I think the group assessment (if any) is short i reckon maybe 3-4 hours. There will be waiting around for your turn in the interview.

hi tina. yeah i am going to take the tube which i think will be an hour to terminal 3..I'm trying to prepare as much as I can.. with your recent airline, what is the time frame of waiting before they told you you passed the interview? will they tell us the same day? and what is BBC? lol just got confused. and have you got suit yet?

@sc1118 yeah, i have been practicing my heels so it won't be awkward walking on them on the day.lol.. good luck to all of us...

I can't remember now, was a while ago. Don't think it was too long. People are saying they found out a few days after. I doubt will find out the same day. BBC is British Born Chinese :) Suit...I'm looking looking today after work.

Yeah, I got a new suit! My suit pants for the other suit was ruined, I was so gutted, and started to panic, lol! But got a new suit from Slaters, and 45 minutes before the train, they did alterations for my pants too.. Haha!

Oh my, best of luck to us all! I really need it!

Hey guys!

It went alright, I guess **Touch wood**

I am still in London at the moment, and just using a computer at a cafe, so sorry if it's not too detailed!

But no need to be worried, and be yourself, and totally smile!

First thing is..

Arm reach test, and it's just basically a piece of sticky notes where you have to reach it, then a group discussion, and an application form to fill in.

Just keep your cool, and everything will be fine.

Best of luck to you both, and let me know how it goes!

Don't forget your documents and passport pictures!

Yeah, our discussion was about experimenting on animals, to be banned or not, and basically, for and against, but the other group by accident either misundestood or something, ended up supporting the statement, when we were all suppose to go against each other. Hehe.

But yeah, the idea is basically, a group discussion. Don't worry, shouldn't be a right and wrong around the topics no matter what you get.

Best of luck, Tina!

Manger1208, did you have to read a paragraph or anything?

I'm anxious, I don't want to receive an e-mail, that means that's the end of my road from there then!..

I would love a call though!
