Hey everyone,

Just wanna start a discussion for the JFK base Recruitment 2014 so everyone who is interested in applying for, or already applied for it can share the most up to date info. =)

So far, apparently, CX is accepting application for JFK base, but i think they didn't call out yet.

feel free to comment!

Cheers!
JC

This is the auto-reply from CX JFK base:

If you are selected for an interview, we will be contacting you during our next recruitment activities. If you are not contacted, you are welcome to re-apply in six months.

Apparently they will start another recruitment in the near future!

Hi guys.

Do you know if there are also guys applying for this position? :)

I am a guy and I was wondering do they hire mostly women?

And also, how does the interview process work? Like what are the stages?

Thank you.

Hey Jan Buday,

I am also a guy who is interested in JFK base FA position.

As some comments I read from other posts, there are more girls will be hired than guys, I am not quite sure why, but usually only 2-4 guys will be selected in a full batch of 24 FAs...it is more "competitive" for guys than girls i think! haha

I am also want to know more about the interview process...

cheers!

I just cannot believe my eyes when I saw their hiring online. I was reading the qualifications: Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese, Tagalog, or Japanese and then I was like, wait, TAGALOG?! OMG TAGALOG! lol

I literally went up to my brother giggling haha

I just have a question. I hope someone can answer it for me. I currently live in Florida and I want to apply for the New York base position. How did they schedule you for an interview? Do they give you dates you can choose from? I am just wondering because I am in Florida right now and I wanna know how to work it out if ever I need to fly to NY just for an interview.

And also, Im a dude. Were there a lot of guys who applied? I hope I am not the only one. hehe

Thanks.

haha! Jan Buday,

I heard that they also called some Thai speakers for the interview in last August, and yes, English & an Asian language is a MUST for all the FAs in Cathay Pacific.

for the interview arrangement, I think once they called you to schedule the first interview, they will give you a date & time, and of course, they will ask if you can make it on that date / time. if not, I think you can just ask for another option (a later date or later time).

not sure when they will start another section of recruitment for JFK base...finger crossing!!! =)

Do you think I can apply for all the bases they have an open hiring for? Because really, I am cool with wherever they put me.

haha i was thinking about that too!

but apparently, even u have applied SFO, LAX and JFK at the same time, and these 3 bases are hiring, they will only allow you to choose from one of these 3 location.

(please correct me if I said it wrong)

oh, I don't know why they keep the FA position posting on their website all year round...but I have heard they usually start recruiting new FAs once or twice per year for each base.

For JFK base, the latest recruitment (which is also the first time for JFK base) is last August,

For LAX base, the latest recruitment is last September, and January 2014 for the SFO base...

I hope they will start hiring again in April or sooner for JFK base! haha

Do you think it's a good idea to apply to all 3 bases? Did you do this?

I am not sure if it is a good idea to apply for all 3 bases at the same time, coz I am also thinking should I apply for LAX too? haha...

but i guess it should be fine...since they didn't mention you can't apply for all 3 bases, although someone mentioned that all applications are handled by the same office in California (but we are not supposed to know, right?).

Since it seems to be everyone's question as to why FA's posting is on their website year round..
I facebook messaged Cathay Pacific and here's the reply I recieved:

Hi Nicole - We are always accepting resumes on a rolling basis, so go ahead and send in your resume as stated on the website and they file your resume away until recruitment again. Good luck

I know their last recruitment was during August. One of my friend's friend made it through all rounds of interviews, training in Hong Kong, and recently experienced her first flight.
I hope Cathay recruits soon for JFK base again. it's been half a year already!

Only JFK. I live in NY so it'll be a hassle for me to apply to LAX. Also LAX base recruitment is over.

Hi all :)

So glad to find this post! I also live in New York (but am currently on vacation in Hong Kong). Did everyone send a cover letter along with the resume or the resume alone would suffice?

Thanks!

hi alexandra! i submitted mine along with a cover letter. i think that its always good to have a cover letter along with your resume. it gives employer the chance to know more about you on a personal level. :)
