The above post is awesome - please can someone help him and assist with any info or tests pilotwannabehk can't be bothered getting for themselves.

If you want a study group - scout out people for yourself. You've asked for assistance before, maybe it's time to take a deep breath and pm someone also asking for help. But seriously don't go on about how you want to screen your study buddies. Or do. But if you do please post your results because someone not employed by the airline and asking for help for the interview process who somehow knows enough about the interview process would be a thumping good read.

As always, good luck but stop sitting back and expecting people to rush to you. Take that big step forward and do your own legwork.

MTBUR,
I might use the wrong word.
I just want to make sure the availability to attend the meeting

PPRuNe is good place to meet others who share the same passion.
I am very thankful for the help.

I do share with anyone asking for help

How long did you guys who have had interviews recently (last 2-3months until now) have to wait after applying before CX replied to you? Were you CPP AE or TT?

Thanks for the info!

I applied back in 2012 before they closed it. Back then I had 0 hours.

Then I updated my application initially in late November 2014 and received an email in Jan.

It is all about location for AE and where the roadshows are happening. If you are waiting for a UK interview for example, you won't hear anything until they are ready to start recruitment days in the UK. Maybe 2/3 weeks before said date

In regards to this, I checked the box on the application that said I preferred my interview to be in HK (rather than home country), does the road show still matter in this case?

All I can say is keep current, keep updating your profile and keep it recent. Hours are not a factor as long as you qualify for their minimums. They are dealing with an incredible amount of applications at the moment and I have no doubt this number is only going to increase as road shows begin.

Someone stated it is mostly AUS being recruited due to favoritism, this is not true. Reason being is that for the last few months they have been actively recruiting in Australia on roadshows. This means that at the moment AUS candidates coming through is a high number. This will change as CX reach USA/UK/EU ect.

In regards to having HK interview locations on your profile that is good. However, I am not sure if HR look at your current residency and go by that?
example:

If it was me, I would look at your two options being HK and let's say USA(miami), Then I would notice you are currently LIVING in Miami. I would therefore keep your CV on file until recruitment hits MIA. It would be easier for both parties to organize the interview I feel.

This is merely my opinion and with everything else, I am probably wrong!!

Hope this helps you out?

Keep the faith, keep flying and you will get the call if they find you suitable.
