Hey all, to all future cabin crew, goodluck on your upcoming impact interviews next week. Every airline has their own set of requirements, if you don't like them then don't apply. Don't go ranting about it, you're the one stepping into a company, you do the adjustments not the other way around. There will always be someone better than you, someone more goodlooking, someone who speaks better but these aren't the only things the airlines are looking for.
Best advices I can give you are;
*never lose the SMILE everytime, even while talking during the interview.
*stand proud and stand your ground, but be polite and greet everyone you see and I mean EVERYONE.
*make sure you stand out. Everybody in the room are as competent and qualified as you are, the challenge is how to make yourself stand out and become memorable. Give it a touch of your personal story, don't be generic or robotic.
*research and read about the company, have time to read around, browse and read tips posted on the page by other cabin crew and aspirants, don't just go asking someone for spoonfed advices.
*come prepared, abide by the company's requirement. Rememember your the one entering a community/company, so learn to abide by their rules and requirements, not the other way around.
Don't complain about the HEIGHT, WEIGHT, SKIN etc requirement, they are there for a reason. If you don't like it then don't apply.
*Lastly, make sure you actually and are passionately into being a cabin crew, and not just a stepping stone. Recruiters can see this right through you.
And the rest will be history.
On my part, here's my story. Since I really wanted to be a cabin crew, I made sure I fit the requirements. I worked on it and not go ranting about it. I was overweight, I was 300 lbs. I had to lose it for almost a year to get the 156 lbs. requirement for my height (5'9). I took care of my skin, no regimens, just proper food and sleep. I read and browsed the net, I tried not to ask too much from other cabin crew, Imagine how fed up they get being asked the same questions all the time. Have the initiative and patience to research and read about and not just ask people around.
