It's the little details that will make or break you

Airlines have been known to have applications to be filled out at the interview. If you forgot to bring your pen (REMEMBER: Bring 2 pens!!), you can ask the interviewer for one, and they will give you a pencil. Later, when they're going through the applications, they will throw out all the ones filled out in pencil, as this proves you're not good at planning ahead for a given situation. (SEE?? =) )

Are you friendly and talkative, or are you shy and keep to yourself? Your posture and how you sit, walk and talk will all be checked. This information may be reported to the interviewers before you enter their office. You will always want to be on guard at all times, not just the time you are infront of the interviewers.  Are you slumped against the wall or slouching in your seat while waiting to be called? Is this what would you consider "professional flight attendant" demeanor? Your interviewers will not! Be other airlines for that matter. Always be upbeat and positive as possible. Even if it is allowed or permissible, don't smoke during the interview process (Hello???)

You will want to bring to your interview the following items:
  • Passport
  • A copy of your birth certificate
  • Copies of your resume (atleast 2) with your 2 2x2 photographs, including a full length
  • A copy of the information needed on the application (varies)
  • Letters of reference
  • Pen (2 or more!!)
  • Watch ( just goes to show that you're professional)
  • WATER & Sumtin' to munch when you're about to faint! :) ) (you'll thank me later)
