The Final Interview is the last step you need to take while dealing with the recruiters. It may last from just a few minutes (as it is the case of Qatar Airways, when you are given not more than 5 minutes) to 20-30 minutes. It all depends on your discussion with the recruiters, what they are looking for on your CV, your past experience and the way in which you succeed to convince them of your future cabin crew abilities.
The discussion is usually a relaxed one; it’s just you and the recruiters. They will pay close attention to your answers, as well as to your body language. How you will support your opinions, along with your ability to take decisions quickly and give relevant answers will also be noticed.
There are some standard questions posed on the final interview. That does not mean, of course, that the questions will remain the same for each interview, or that the recruiters won’t ask you something specific, according to your own professional experience. You have to be prepared for anything, confident and optimistic during all the interview process.
Here is a list of the most commonly asked interview questions, whose response should be kept in mind:
- Tell us a little bit about yourself.
- Recall a time when a co-worker was not doing their job. Did you step in, and if so, how?
- Why do you want to be a Flight Attendant?
- What 3 strengths would you bring to the company?
- Tell me a time when you were overwhelmed at work. What happened? What did you do? What was the end result?
- Give an example of excellent customer service you provide.
- How do you feel about wearing a uniform at work?
- Why should we hire you?
- Do you want to ask us anything?
- Recall a time when you had to handle an unruly customer. How did you resolve the ensuing conflict?
Cabin Crew Final Interview Questions: How to answer?
Stay relevant in everything you say. Don’t give very long answers and always come up with practical examples, relating to your own experience. Be sincere and tell the truth in case you haven’t already found yourself in a certain situation. Don’t interrupt the recruiters and try to maintain a positive atmosphere. When you are done, don’t forget to thank them for their time.
My advice is to have the answers to the questions above prepared in advance (or at least have an idea). Don’t memorize them and don’t try to build perfect answers. Smile as much as you can and try to prove the recruiters that all your qualities recommend you for the position of flight attendant within that airline.
