Hi Guys,

I just thought i should share some info that i got from my phone interview.

I had my interview on Friday and was invited allong to the Recruitment Day. I believe they are having 4 sessions, morning and afternoon, on 30 Sep & 01 Oct.

I was told that they are only looking at one ground school for MEL base starting on 8 Nov and goes for 5 weeks (as normal).

Hope this is good news for you.

Good luck. Time to fly...

Hi doud1307,

I withdrew my application for guest services to apply for cabin crew.

I am anxiously waiting for a response.

Do they email you before the phone interview to let you know or do they just call?

Regards


jennylee

Hi Jennylee,

I received an email asking me to book for a phone interview.
Then, I had it and the human ressources assistant asked me if I would like to go for the group interview.
I never had group interview before, so I wonder how it's gonna be.

Well, we'll see.

Thanks Doud I am anxiously awiting an outcome from my cabon crew application.

I went to a group interview with jetsar a couple of months back if you go into the altara interview thread on this site it will give you some information on what that was like.

Group interviews are mainly group activities and sometimes a test or role play of some sort.

Just be yourself and make sure you participate in the group activities.

let me know how it goes!!!!

A big tip for both of you: make sure you proof read any written components of your applications (unlike your posts on here).

Hi,

I went to a guest services recruitment today and it was OK.
It first started with a company presentation, then a small test.
After that we did group exercice.
Then half of the group took a comprehension test while the over half started the one on one interviews (about 20min)
The recruitment team was very friendly.
Nothing to worry about, but they have to make a choice and the have plenty of people to choose from.

Good luck to you and hope this help.

Hey Joannejo

Its a great day - full on and long but good.

First you go in and sign in and they ask you for your paper work and if you have any travel plans in the next 6 months.

Then you sit at a table with other candidates. There were 3 tables of about 5 in our group. They then talk about the job and the company and ask a couple of questions - anyone can answer them. After that we had to do a group activity which consisted of making a paper plane which materials that they give us. Then we had to present out plane to the groups. After that we did a test to match flight numbers from one side of the page to the other. After that we had a comprehension test which was easy and then had one on one interviews. That was it. Was there about 4 hours.

Good luck - just be yourself. There is no right or wrong answer

Hi,

Well the group exercice was the same as Mrs Final call.

For the 2 documents, I received them yesterday by email and if you don't have a printer, they will have some on the table that you can fill when you arrive.

For the clothes, almost everybody wore a suit with a white shirt and some girls had black dresses.

Be yourself and smile

recruitment day

Thank you for being so lovely and answering my questions Doud! Best of luck to you with it all. Please post on here and let me know how you went (good or bad)! I'm sure you'll make it through as you seem like a nice person. I wish I were you right now, with the interview done and dusted this morning. I don't like waiting around, it just makes you more nervous! Anyway, I'll keep you posted with how I go too.

guest services VRD

So I had my recruitment day this morning, hooray, I survived It actually wasn't too bad....sure everyone was nervous and it was an 'interview' but it was pretty relaxed really. I think the recruiters know what they want and you can't pretend to be anyone but yourself and hope they like you. I think I did well, but only time will tell!

Doud and Mrsfinalcall....have you two heard anything as yet?

Good luck everyone
