Nope, but they grade you on the Sim if you have hours. Advanced "Grading"

Sydney SO interview

Hi guys,

I got a Sydney interview for SO 1st stage cadet ship with CX in July. Is anyone else out there attending around then?

Studying basic technical questions and researching HK, done about 15 hours dual and gone solo. From your experience, does anyone out there have any questions from stage 1 that have been asked recently?

That would be great help

When they ask about Cathay destinations during the interview, are they most concerned with their own destinations rather than the codeshare ones? The destinations with their own service are annotated with a ^ on the Cathay company website.

Stage One

Hi all,

I have been asked to attend the stage one process in AKL next month. Has anyone experienced the latest stage one process or have any insight as to what you can expect?

My invitation states there are four components.

Interview with both Personal and Technical Questions (45mins)

Technical multiple-choice Questionnaire (45mins)

Reasoning Test (45mins)

A Personality Assessment (30mins)

Any idea on what you can expect in each of these exercises would be fantastic. In partiuclar I am interested in the technical questions and the reasoning test, ie the type of question and what the best reference material out there is.

Thanks in advance.

Has anyone going to the AKL interview received any reading material (JKI Booklet?) yet?

@eagle206 - read the thread. There is a lot of good in-depth information concerning the interviews.

Curious....

How many have read "The 49ers - The True Story" by John Warham?

If not, why?

If so, your thoughts considering the career and choices you are making now?

There are now 2 books that any aspiring pilot for CX should read: "Handling The Big Jets" by Davies and "The 49ers - The True Story" by John Warham.

How can you not know where the airline you seek to join is going if don't know where that airline has been? Past behaviour is the greatest and best indicator of future behaviour. Even CX use that technique in your interviews.

they asked me about it when I interviewed in 08.

What do you know about the 49ers?

What do you think?

How should the company have acted in this matter in your opinion?

Its not all about what engines does this aircraft have blah blah blah.
