Pengalaman Seleksi Pramugara/i Cathay Pacific

Siapa di antara kalian yang sudah mengirimkan lamaran untuk Cathay Pacific Cabin Crew Recruitment? Nah, buat kalian yang berminat jadi pramugari maskapai terbaik sedunia versi Skytrax Airlines Awards tahun 2009 ini silakan baca pengalaman seleksinya yang ditulis oleh pembaca Forum Pramugari bernama Fritz. Seperti apa sih seleksi Cathay Pacific dari sudut pandang seorang calon pramugara? Yuk, kita baca ceritanya~

Nah,,pengalaman gw wktu CX,,day one,,seperti biasa,,rame banget,,ga cewek,ga cowok,ada yang diem aja,ada yang ga bisa diem (kayak gw),,hahahaha,krn gw sbnrnya tipikal hiperaktif,banyak energinya,dan gw bnyk kenalan sana sini,krn rata2 dr mereka tuh diem,dan ga mau kenalan,,entah krn gugup,,entah grogi,,entah emg ga mau sosialisasi,,but whatever,,gw emg perlu ngbrl dan make a life..(Notes,,jgn salah,,apapun yg kita lakukan,,diawasi,,krn yg gw dgr2,,ad org dr HR yg berpakaian sprt pelamar,dan berbaur,taaappiii,tingkat keakuratan berita ini msh ga jelas)

Back to the story,,akhrnya representative dari CX datang,,cukup banyak,,gak kayak Qatar yg cm 2 org HR,,,,nah,,di CX,,mereka ngedatnegin para senior cabin crew,,ada 2 cowo,dan 4 cewek (salah satunya ibu2,manager crew,dan org Indonesia)…

Stlh itu,kita diperkenalkan siapa2 beliau2 trsbt,,,,ksh liat video mengenai CX dan life disana..

Bla bla bla,,mksdnya,stlh itu,ada sesi dimana kt diksh tau semua mengenai CX,,bayaran,apartemen,dan semuanya lah yg kalian perlu tau dan mau tau soal CX and Hongkong,,lanjut dgn sesi tanya jwb..

Stlh selesai,,,kita akan dibagi2 jadi bowanyak kelompok,,1 kelompok bs smpe 10org…dan dr msg2 kelompok dikasih nomor,dan ditempel di dada (fungsinya utk si HRD ga perlu hapalin nama kt,cukup sebut nmr)…kemudian,,dr grup by grup,akan ikutin representative masing2 ke ruangan yg trsedia..

Sampai di ruangan,,,,ad 10 kursi sesuai jmlh pelamar,,kt disuruh duduk..dan si HR jg duduk,,dimulai dr dia sndr,pihak CX memperkenalkan siapa dia,posisi ap,dan ngapain secara singkat,,kemudian satu persatu jg akan ikt memperkenalkan diri,background,and so on,,(ad yg inggrisnya bagus,ad yg mantan crew,ad yg msh jd crew,ad yg inggrisnya *maaf ga bagus bngt,pokoknya macem2 lah disana)

Stlh selesai perkenalan,,dia akan jelasin secara singkat,cara main group discussion,akan ada topik (gw lupa topiknya apa)tp yg pst,topiknya general,ga rumit,dan pst bs dibahas bersama2…..dikasih waktu 10menit ato lbh,dan hrs ada hasil keputusan..
(Selama kt diskusi,kt dilarang melihat si HRD,so don’t look at them,krn itu udh diwarning dr awal)

Teng teng!!!discussion begin,semua lgsg mau cas cis cus ngmg,hahahaha,termasuk gw…tp ad jg yg diem dan sm sekali ga ngmg,,sampe si HRD nya nanya ke org itu,,wht do u think!!!setelah kesimpulan tercipta,,,dan hasil diskusi adalah sekian…titik…..

Lanjut lg,kt disuruh keluar satu persatu,dan lgsg dibagikan kartu dngn warna merah dan hijau…u knw lah kalo merah apa dan ijo apa,hahahaha..gw dpt merah,,dan ga lulus…..taaaappiiiiiiii yg pd bkin grup gw heran,,,si pendiem diatas td,,,terpilih!!!!!!!

Y sdh,,pulang dgn harapan pupus,down,,sakit hati,dll..krn gw berharap trlalu banyak utk jd crew..I admit it kalo gw agak gemuk,dan skrg lg bener2 gym keras!hahahahaha..

sooooooooo,kesimpulan dr gw (ngga akurat,tapi kira),,bahwa Cx mencari pramugara ato pramugari berwajah asia,,dan,,mereka cari yg kalem!!beda sm Qatar ato Etihad,,,mrk jstru cr yg berenergi..coba deh perhatiin,hahahaa..itu mnrt gw sih

Tp yg jgn dilupakan,,,smile,smile,smile,tp bukan smile yg norak yah,emg smile services banget!!dan,,be yourself!!!jgn dibuat2!!!

Buat semua yg baca,,,share jg yaaahh!!!thx

      Sepertinya yang dimaksud adalah nilai NEM atau nilai hasil UAN di SMA ya. Biar amannya, kamu tulis saja total NEM kamu berapa dari skala berapa dan cantumkan secara jelas nilai ujian bahasa Inggris kamu berapa di situ. Itu buat yang lulusan SMA. Sementara untuk lulusan Universitas atau Diploma bisa cantumkan nilai SMA dan nilai IPK (GPA) dengan menuliskan secara spesifik berapa nilai yang diperoleh untuk mata kuliah bahasa Inggris.

      Tapi kalau yang berlatar belakang jurusan Sastra Inggris ya cukup cantumkan nilai IPK (GPA) saja dari skala berapa dan pihak rekruter dengan sendirinya bisa menilai seberapa baik bahasa Inggris kita. Kira-kira begitu, semoga membantu ya jawabannya. Ayo cepat lamarannya dikirimkan🙂

      Hello again Tiara, senangnya kamu mampir ke blog ini. Ini bukan cerita aku, tapi cerita kiriman pembaca, aku cuma mencantumkannya di sini supaya banyak yang baca saja hehehe… Eh, ya kalau boleh bisakah aku posting cerita pengalamanmu di Cathay dulu ke blog ini? Kalau boleh apa alamat emailmu? Sekalian aku mau menanyakan beberapa pertanyaan yang sering ditanyakan pembaca tapi belum bisa kujawab karena aku belum pernah ikutan interview Cathay.

      Anyway semoga kamu dapat panggilan lagi ya ^^

      Senasib denganku dan ratusan atau ribuan pelamar lainnya kok, Res. Karena ini ngirimnya via email bukan sistem aplikasi online seperti di website maskapai lainnya. Pastikan lamaranmu terkirim ya, cek di sent box email kamu. Kalau sudah terkirim tinggal tunggu sekitar akhir April dan awal Mei, semoga dapat undangan interview ya ^^

  15. Wahyu April 7, 2011 at 11:25 PM Reply

    dear all

    i applied for CX in 2008 and alhamdulilah i got in . now its almost 3 years ive been flying here and there .

    to clarify a few things . i dont think there were cx staff who were ” undercover ” among the applicants .

    just another tips from me .

    regarding the group discussion . its not about how much you talk or how less you talk in the group .

    aside of what kind of comments in the group discussion, one most important thing is how you deliver your comments ( complete with your gesture plus tone of voice –> this one people tend to forget because it comes naturally from within )

    implication to the airline industry would be , how you gonna respond to your passengers . not everyday you gonna meet and interact with nice passengers you’ll meet a lot of ” not ” nice passengers on board . however whenever u are in uniform you have to always have a warmth nice smile and friendly gesture plus intonation of voice .

    basically it all gonna show how you would react towards your passengers .

    i wish you all the best . and see you in hong kong !

    • dearmarintan April 8, 2011 at 12:27 AM Reply

      Dear Wahyu, thank you for kindly giving us another clue here for the upcoming CX interview. Most of us here are newbies who get cold feet every time it comes to having an interview with any airlines.

      Thank you very much for the tips and I hope the wannabes here would see you in Hong Kong soon ^^

    • deesatisfaction April 9, 2011 at 10:04 AM Reply

      Totally agree with Wahyu. The most important thing is the first impression you deliver and how you bring yourself in a professional manner. I realize that sometimes it’s quite difficult to state what are they looking for in one person. The one that is suspected to be chosen, ended up go home earlier. But, I’m pretty sure that smile, gesture, facial expression and confidence play first. Even though I’m not a CX crew, but I’ve been thru some interviews for cabin crew as well. So, don’t give up everybody! Put ur best effort and good luck!!!

    • AJS May 9, 2011 at 10:32 AM Reply

      according to your comment kak Wahyu,
      “regarding the group discussion . its not about how much you talk or how less you talk in the group .
      aside of what kind of comments in the group discussion, one most important thing is how you deliver your comments ( complete with your gesture plus tone of voice –> this one people tend to forget because it comes naturally from within )”
      maybe i’m tottaly like the man who was mentioned above, the man who was sillent and shy to talk. and my english language is not so good enough I think. could you please tell me what language should us use to disscuss in?
      thanks a million ka Wahyu…

  16. Wahyu April 8, 2011 at 2:29 AM Reply

    You are most wellcome

    One more thing to clarify . There is no such thing that cx looking for specific look . Cx does not discriminate .

    Looking through those colleagues of mine who passed the test in 2008 we came from different ethnics and background .

    And as for newbies , i was a newbie with no airlines industry experience .i got cold feet as well . So no worries

    Really do wish u all the best .

    • dearmarintan April 8, 2011 at 9:15 AM Reply

      It’s quite relieving to read your clarification about the rumor. I personally think that they treat everybody equally and it all depends on each candidate on the interview day.

      Anyway, I’ve received a lot of emails asking whether the 208cm armreach test is done with bare feet. Does CX allow the candidates to stand on their tiptoes like the EK does? Though EK requires 212cm armreach.

      • Wahyu April 8, 2011 at 11:12 AM

        during my time it was bare feet , and it was allow to be on your tiptoes !

  18. fritz April 8, 2011 at 11:32 PM Reply

    Would like to share what I had in my mind…

    You know..when the dateline (or maybe I should say it deadline) of the CX or the other airlines interview just in front of ure nose,,it gets me more freakin out,worried,anxious..

    There are lots and lots,tons and tons of preparation that I’ve made..put more efforts here,fix the mistakes there,yet,it makes me feels like……those kind of feelings..

    Too much thingking about “how am I look”,,”am I that fat”,,”am I tall enough”,,”do I smile properly”,,”to compete better candidates”,,”its not fair”,,”he looks so cabin crew”,,she is so wonderful”……yes,I can say that all,because not only me that felt the same thud and failed all of those process..

    Its hurt though,and you’re soooo down like ure lost in space when you fail….and we failed couples of time (I bet that u don’t want to know how does it feel)…and lots of people said that “maybe flying its not ure way dude”,,”God knows best”,or whatever advices that could built us,or break us down..

    And when you put lots of expectation and countless hope within you…yet,,Im just too affraid if this time I will have those “failed” title back..

    I would like to put in my mind always the Positive attitude that I do believe it will caused the Positive Results as well,,but I’m just too affraid that I will not success for this sixth times..

    I’m just a normal human being that could down sometimes…..

    Me,,and all of wannabies,,just need support to the max..and deep down,,beneath our heart,,we don’t want to stop trying,and believing,,that WE CAN FLY….

  21. Wahyu April 12, 2011 at 9:37 PM Reply

    Fritz :

    life’s so far so good . just landed back in hk from jfk . bloody tired but happy . it was a safe and happy flight .
    life in hk is good . but however , ur own country is the best , despite all of the crappy-ness hehehehe

    regarding the job , one most important message from me is you have to love the service industry . if you are into this job just for the traveling , within one year you will definitely get bored of it , because you gonna fly to the same destination all over again .

    regarding the colleagues . you will be working with other nationalities , and most of the time you will be the only indonesian on the flight. if you are passionate about the service industry it will reflects on your work no matter what. and other nationalities would be very happy to work with you .yes there are some difficult people , like in every other job , its just how you handle those kind of people and try your best to create a nice working environment on every flight. the key is to adapt ( basic survival hehehe )

    moving forward . just another message from me . i tried for qatar airways before . and i failed . so i know how it feels . but look what i have next ? cx ….

    the message here is , dont let failure get you down . if qatar or cx does not hire you , its not the end of the world . there is the whole world in front of you with other opportunities .

    other example ; i am still in touch with a friend of mine who didnt pass the test in 2008 , yes he was down , but look where he is now , working in a very reputable oil and gas company with i can say a ” great ” paycheck ( seriously )

    Popo & Novi : so i heard is 100 , but im not sure about this one .

      Dear Wahyu,

      Thanks for the energy came from your side. I had failed in EK and QR recruitment where those times made me down deeply.. However the chances are still opened like what CX offered to all of us..

      Guys… Don’t ever think about how many FA – CX require but keep thinking How much that you can present to CX…. not just about traveling think but again about Turning moment into memories for Crews, Passengers and ourselves indeed. see u all in Jakarta..

      Best regards from Bali Island

  23. Ed April 17, 2011 at 2:06 PM Reply

    Hello everyone,

    You can call me Ed and I am a brand new visitor of this blog.

    Frankly, it makes me feel totally and terribly outdated that I never even knew such a blog actually exists before — a blog that I’m sure is very helpful in helping and facilitating fellow Indonesian prospective flight attendants to connect, relate and share information as well as experiences among one another. However, at the same time, it also makes me extremely grateful that it actually does!

    I have to say that I find this particular entry most helpful, as I am now applying for flight attendant position at Cathay Pacific Airline. I would like to personally send my gratitude to the creator of this blog, of course, and also to Fritz, Wahyu and all the other commentators who have taken the time to share their past experiences. Every fragment of information that I’ve obtained from reading this particular page has really helped me in calming all the nerves in my body that have been unhealthily tense as it has been a week since I submitted my application and I haven’t heard anything back from them ever since.

    However, I still have several bothering issues regarding this topic that I’m hoping I could come to terms with by sharing it with you all.

    First of all, I would like to confess that I can’t help becoming very much interested and curious about how Fritz and Wahyu constructed and submitted their applications. Did you send a standard formal curriculum vitae and cover letter, or did you add some specific spices into them? I know that meeting the requirements and the qualifications is what matters the most, but I’m just really nervous and anxious as this is my very first attempt in applying for a job. I sent my cv and cover letter as attachments in .doc format. And, I also included a photograph of me in .jpg format. Is that alright? Was it a right decision to attach a photograph?

    And secondly — I guess you guys must have seen this coming — I can’t stop wondering how long they usually take to filter all the resumes and call you back. Will they call you personally or will they just notify you through e-mail? And if they do call, around what time do they usually do so?

    Lastly, I would also like to ask if slightly blemished complexion (read: occasional acne and fading scar haha) still renders me suitable for their consideration.

    I truly apologize for asking too many overly specific questions. I hope it’s not too much of a trouble. And I also hope that if these questions do get answered, it will also help all the other victims of time and unavoidable impatience like me out there to at least have a peaceful mind and stay optimistic.

    Thank you very much.

    Sincerely,

    Ed

      Hi, Ed! Welcome to the forum🙂

      I’m glad reading your comment here because Fritz, Wahyu and Singgih finally have another friend in this forum.

      Anyway, the blog itself is new so no wonder that you just found this. I’ve created this on 9th March and never expected that it would be this crowded hehehe.

      Reading your comment makes me thinking that your English is awesome! Are you a fresh graduate from English department? It’s a plus point for you if you’re invited to the interview and I’m sure you’ll impress the recruiters.

      You asked several questions and these are my answers:

      1. I wrote my cover letter on the body of the email and attach my CV. Yet I didn’t attach my photo in .jpg format, I’ve put the 3×4 close up one on the CV. But I guess I’ll resend my application letter and this time I’ll attach my full body photo in .jpg format. Like Wahyu said, the most important thing is how to sell yourself as interesting as possible in the recruiter’s eyes so they want you to join the interview.

      2. Like Fritz said, the application deadline is extended to 25th April and the career section of Cathay Pacific’s website told us that the interview will be held in the middle of May. So we can expect to read their emails (if we’re lucky) in the end of April or in the beginning of May.

      3. About the blemished complexion, I’m sure that no one in this room is perfect. So don’t worry as long as you can cover the acne and fading scar. I agree with Wahyu, don’t put it excessively because it will obviously look unusual. And you’re a guy. So ask for help from your sister or girlfriend or the internet how to apply foundation or concealer correctly on your skin.

      Talking about the nerves, all of us in this forum have already got cold feet and surely they will get colder when the interview is set. But hey, don’t worry, we’re here to help each other by sharing🙂

      Hope my novel-length answer helps you calming the nerves~ hehehehe

  24. Fritz April 17, 2011 at 3:46 PM Reply

    YOOOOWWWWW ED, first thing first, welcome to the club!! so glad that we have another male candidate!!hehehehe

    im the most expressive person in this forum, so dont be shocked!!hahahahah….i had my lunch when i read ure post, and when i read ure post, im so finished my meal, and straightaway replyin,,,glad if we can help you out..

    so, regarding bout the CV, yes please, send ure CV and cover letter by attachment, and so do the picture..my format is, i wrote the cover letter NOT in the attachment, i wrote it on the BODY of email, and then, i fill my CV, including my photo in the attachment.

    make sure u didnt put spices too much into it as u mention bout those, hahaha..cuz u want to sell ure self, not over do it though, keep it professional, not more than 2 or 3 pages….if u still couldnt figure it out, u can get some good samples with Mr Google

    2nd, bout the dateline, heemmm, if CX gave themself 25th apr as theyre final day to submit the CV, then i can say, could be on the first week of may, since they mention that they will conduct the interview in the mid of May..yes i know, to get those invitation are not easy, and make us worry so much, me, personally, will try to resent my CV about 2 days before the dateline, just in case,,nothing more, that way i can reduce my worriness, hahahahah….they will sent the invitation letter by email, not by phone,,,it is necessary but just print out the invitation letter, again,,just in case.

    3rd, blemishes, scar, they are very strict on it..if the scar or acne are visible, u might try to put on foundation to cover it, they will appreciate it so much since Cabin crew job demanding your appearance….if ure typical of oily skin, bring towels to wipe or cleaner before u facing the interviewers..look fresh always will help u to smile bright!!!

    hahahahah,,no worries Ed, all of us helping each other,,,,impatience?????? ALL OF US as well,hahahahahahahhahaha..

    any more question, please dont be hesitate…i do check this forum EVERY DAY !!!heheheheh…

      Hi Fritz,

      I found this blog straight after I’ve got an interview invitation with EX and really excited as well as big nervous since that its gonna be my first interview experience for a cabin crew. I have some questions regarding about the interview process to ask you, obviously if you don’t mind to answer😀

      First, I wonder about the first round of interview process since that in other blog it says that the first round interview might just about the presentation of the company then FGD. Is that same like in Jakarta later ?

      Second, I wonder to know how long the process gonna be from the first interview until the last stage of recruitment process gonna be ? It says again on other blog it takes around 6 weeks until u get the golden ticket.

      Thanks for your respond and for sharing such a great experience😀

      • fritz April 30, 2011 at 4:51 PM

        hi RSS,

        of course i dont mind, hehehe..i will try my best to answer, but please bear in mind, that im not yet crew, so there will be differences from time to time, and do not compare it with someone tht already crew..

        Usually, they will make it in one package, which is slide show of the company profile, after that it will go to Group Discussion.,,,and i think it will be the same in Jakarta, since i had it back then in 2008.

        the second,,,it will took you like 4 until 6 weeks or maybe more than that, regarding theyre slots..
        they will make u waiting for that long when u reach final interview…from final interview to med-check, will took u from 4-6weeks for them to inform u……if u succeed in med-check, u have to wait theyre golden email for 4-6weeks as well, and u will be announced for your training and when u will depart to HKG..

        they will subdivided into group, Group A will have the training on bla bla, Group B will depart on bla bla, etc.

        ure very welcome, glad if I can help!!!semoga gw dpt pahala dan keterima di CX, ammmmiiiiinnnnnn,hahahahha

    Dear ED

    im happy to hear that we have another male candidate for this job .

    first of all id like to compliment your english . its excellent !
    so glad that what we have posted here , slowly release the unhealthy tense in your mind .

    regarding the interview . well before they extended the deadline , some colleagues of mine who will be participating in the recruitment was already assigned in a certain period of time . if im not mistaken shud be in the second week of may . but since they extended it , im sorry i havent got any further information about it .

    about the CV , i couldnt remember how my format was . but all i can remember that i put the cover letter in the body of the email and my CV and photos as attachments.

    for me ( personally ) , a good CV should be sufficient in one page . within that page i would emphasize what i have to offer , its like i have to be able to sell myself by one page .but again that is my personal opinion.

    for the so called ” blemished complexion ” (read: occasional acne and fading scar) . well if you’d like you can do something about it . like what fritz has mentioned , use something to cover up , would be nice . just dont put it excessively.

    Good grooming will be highly appreciated .it shows that you do care about your self presentation .this is one of the major point that company always review on every flight .

    lastly i sincerely hope all of you guys will do well in the interview . and im really looking forward to welcome all of you to the team .

    Dear Fritz, Wahyu and Dearmarintan,

    Please accept my deepest and sincerest gratitude for your responses to my previous comment above. I was actually kind of afraid and nervous that you would find my overly lengthy and wordy post too annoying to read, let alone deserve a response.

    Anyway, thank you so much for the warm welcome.🙂 It really gives me the sense of belonging and acceptance in becoming a member of this club. And it is absolutely a pleasure for me to be a part of the male members.🙂

    Fritz:

    Regarding your expressive self, to be honest, I’ve actually got the impression from reading your older posts and comments that you must be a very expressive and pleasantly energetic person who is definitely fun to be around with. Hence, I think it is so much more accurate to say that I am more grateful, rather than shocked.🙂

    And thank you so very much for your answers, of course!

    Oh I hope it’s alright that I sent my cover letter as an attachment. I didn’t know that it’s better to write it on the body of the e-mail; I was just afraid that they would find it inappropriate and unpleasant to read as my cover letter was, I have to admit, rather long (still within a single page kind of long though, thank goodness. But no thanks to my tendency to love putting some extra unnecessary words haha)

    Fortunately enough, I succeeded in restraining my bad habit of typing down every single word that popped out of my head and ended up with a single-page curriculum vitae. Haha. Not without the aid of Mr. Google though, I must admit.😉

    It is absolutely relieving to know that they would only send the notifications through e-mail. I guess now I can put an end to my totally unhealthy relationship with my cellphone that has been going on since I submitted my application — and, well, switch to my e-mail. haha. And yes, I will definitely print the invitation letter (if God allows I do receive it, of course *crossing fingers ever so tightly it hurts)

    I will probably consider putting on foundation or concealer, although I don’t think I have ever tried putting on those kinds of product on my face, especially by myself. Maybe I’ll ask some of my friends to teach me how, just like what Dearmarintan suggested. However, I am a little bit confused regarding which particular type and brand of product I should use, because I’m afraid if I’m not being extra careful with it, it might bring a negative impact to my already far-from-perfect facial skin. And well, I also can’t help wondering, how strict they exactly are regarding this..

    Nonetheless, once again thank you so much for your help, Fritz. I highly appreciate it.🙂

    And it would be an understatement to say that I am now also growing, in a very rapid pace, more and more addicted to this blog.😉 haha

    Wahyu:

    First of all, I would like to genuinely thank you for your kind words regarding my English. It is absolutely encouraging and heartening to hear it from you. And i could definitely say the same about your English🙂

    And Wahyu, please allow me to say this — I’m sure, every single piece of information that you’ve shared with us until now has already rescued a lot of wandering souls in here, and certainly mine included. So please do not be sorry that you haven’t got any further information regarding the interview.😉

    I agree that composing a cv is all about showcasing one’s best assets in order to sell oneself with the highest possible price. However, to my disadvantage, I haven’t had the chance to learn the art of promoting and selling myself. Haha Now I’m just hoping that the buyers have tolerant eyes😉

    Anyway, If it’s not much of a trouble, would you please elaborate on “good grooming”? Does it mean that facial hair is strictly unacceptable? And that long fringe would give a bad impression?

    Once again thank you for your answers, Wahyu. And also for your encouragement.🙂 I hope there would come a day when I’ll be able to work with you😉

    Dearmarintan:

    Considering the imbalance ratio of the age of this forum and the amount of comments it has generated until now, I guess you’ve done a really great job in creating and maintaining this club, Dearmarintan!😉

    And thank you very much for your generous words regarding my English. I highly appreciate it.🙂 And awesome is your English too!🙂

    Anyway, no, I’m not a graduate from any English departments. I do wish I could be, though haha. The truth is, I’m actually still an undergraduate. I hope it wouldn’t lessen the amount of opportunity that I have at obtaining this job… And well I’ve been praying every night now that if I do get called for the interview, my mouth would not get even the slightest glimpse of creativity to stray from its commitment to my brain, who also has its own way of disobeying its duties. Haha That is extremely crucial.

    Oh, is it really necessary to send a full body photo? It’s just… My full body picture is not very flattering, compared to the close up one.. Haha.

    And yes Dearmarintan, I will seek assistance regarding the right way of painting one’s face yet still maintaining its natural look. hehe

    And certainly, your novel-length answer has helped me in more than just calming my nerves🙂

    Once again thank you so much for your answers, guys! You can be sure that they’re not taken for granted.

    And wow, without realizing it, I have written yet another insanely long post. Please forgive me, friends. I’m only human. hehe😀

    Sincerely,

    Ed

    • Vyr April 18, 2011 at 11:18 PM Reply

      Dear Ed,

      From your post, you really sound like a fun guy, and in my opinion, your attitude is so perfect for this job that we’re all craving to get🙂

      Same goes to Marintan and Fritz. You’re all a kind soul, being here and supporting each other, it’s soothing to know that people like all of you exist, not forget to mention Wahyu, who’s being so humble and kind sharing his experience with all of us fellow hopefuls.

      I’m also addicted to keep checking this media where we can share our thoughts, anyway, I hope I can express my mind as good as you Ed, in English! My vocab is so limited that I have to think for a few seconds before I get the correct word, sometimes I don’t even get it and need to look up at the dictionary, hehe…

      So I wish we’re all could meet on the day of the interview. It’s too bad that Cathay Pacific is currently the only international airlines that recruiting male applicants. But still, it’s a big opportunity for all of us, and we should really go for it!

      Thank you guys, for taking your time, and let us know that great people like you is somewhere out there and trying to reach the same dream like most of the people who’s contributing to this blog.

      Cheers🙂

      • Ed April 20, 2011 at 8:41 PM

        Dear Vyr,

        Thank you so much for your kind words.🙂 And you sound a lot like a fun person too! And well, I’m sure we’re all perfect for this job that we’re craving for — it’s just the chance to show it to them that we really need!

        Oh Vyr, let me tell you a little secret of mine: it’s never a bad decision to befriend a dictionary or two and also the amazing, the wonderful, the ever-so-reliable — Mr. Google. Haha I also have the issue of very limited vocabulary — especially when i’m in the middle of a conversation. And yes, sometimes (often times, frankly) that annoying a-few-seconds pause is just inevitable. I mean, as i’ve read somewhere and if I remember correctly, we’re actually only capable of using 2 % of our whole brain. So, i think it would be wrong to blame ourselves just because we happen to forget a word or two — nobody’s perfect, and we certainly ain’t nobody. haha Nonetheless, dictionaries can be really good and beneficial working partners if you let them to be.😉 So don’t be ashamed that you actually still have to ask for help from dictionaries. I bet even the oldest, the most experienced English professor in the whole world still keeps in touch with that old friend of his every once in a while!😉

        And yes, I hope we’ll all get invited to the interview process so we can meet one another in person!

        Sincerely,

        Ed

      • Ed April 20, 2011 at 9:54 PM

        Sorry, I just want to correct what I’ve stated above… Apparently, as I’ve found on the internet, it’s not 2%, but 10%: and well, it’s not even true. Haha It’s merely a false myth. However, again, the point that I want to make is that nobody’s perfect. And I believe that everyone here certainly ain’t nobody — I believe we’re all “somebody”s who posses our own special, extraordinary traits and skills. So, stay strong, fellow hopefuls! And please forgive me for the misleading information. haha

    • dearmarintan April 20, 2011 at 9:46 AM Reply

      Hi again Ed🙂

      It’s a surprise to me when I found out that you’re not a graduate from English department because your written English is so excellent. Though you’re not yet a graduate, I don’t think it would lessen your chance to get the invitation as I read in CX website that they’re equal opportunities employer so no worries if you’re quite sure that your CV and cover letter are good enough. I believe that you will impress them, all you have to do is get relaxed and pray for the best.

      About the full body photo, they didn’t mention it on the career section but I think it would be helpful. I don’t actually know about it, yet I think there’s nothing wrong with it. If you want to attach your best close-up photo then it won’t be a matter at all. Eventually, it’s about catching the recruiters’ eyes.

      You seem like a good person to talk with, I believe many of the blog visitors here are looking forward to getting to know you more just like I do.

      Have a nice day🙂

      • Ed April 20, 2011 at 8:59 PM

        Dear Dearmarintan,

        I hope you don’t find it boring if i once again send my deepest and sincerest gratitude. Haha Your generous words just really made my night!🙂 and at the risk of getting busted for repeating the same exact expression, I would also like to say that excellent is your written English too!😉

        And once again, your answer just made the frown that I’ve been having on my face disappear in an instance! I can’t really say that I’m completely satisfied with my cv and my cover letter, but I guess it’s pointless in constantly over-analyzing everything. So, I think I’m gonna embrace your advice: let it flow and pray for the best! For all of us!🙂 I’m sure we’ll all impress them that they’ll left going O! O! O! (please forgive me for plagiarizing Katy Perry’s song haha I just love that song)

        *on my knees right now praying that somehow God would grant a life to my sent close-up photo so that it can actually flirt with the recruiter! haha

        You absolutely sound like a really good person to get better acquainted with too, Dearmarintan! And I’m definitely looking forward to getting to know more about everyone in this club!

        I wish you a nice day too🙂 and nice everything if it’s possible.

        Sincerely,

        Ed

  28. Wahyu April 20, 2011 at 1:27 AM Reply

    Got notification in my email from this forum . Anyway i might not be able to write much for today , as i just landed last night , and now is still abit ” disoriented ” hahahaha ( time differences realy do hit u )

    Id just like to elaborate a few things about good grooming as what ed have asked .

    First facial hair is strictly prohibited . Clean shaved is prefered . Moustache is acceptable but i wander who still think moustache is back in theese days

    Fringe , as long as its not exceeding ur eyebrowse is ok . But again its not advised .

    Short hair is ok but not showing ur scalp .

    A nicely gel-ed hair is advised but not spiky .

    Keep it clean and proffesional .

    As on how to dress up , i beleive u all know the standards as other interviews . no jeans and sneakers . This also goes when u are travelling as a passenger on any cx flight in the future ( one of the benefits of working in this company – discounted travel hehehhee ) . I would suggest a smart formal attire .

    Im happy to hear we have more and more candidates for this recruitment . During my time it was arround 4500 applicants , and finally cx recruited 91 candidates , 19 of them are male .

    As i know cx does not have certain ratio on how many male to female gonna be recruited . Its simply who ever meets cx requirement , definitely they will get recruited .

    I hope the information i shared here will help u all . Wish you all the best

    • dearmarintan April 20, 2011 at 9:36 AM Reply

      Hi Wahyu, how’s your flight today? Wish you a nice day wherever you are at the moment~

      • Wahyu April 20, 2011 at 11:58 PM

        Hey deamarintan

        Thanks , my flight was nice , was flying with san fransisco based crew the other day , and now still on a layover here . Had fun since i got here , just the jetlag is killing sometime … Hope you have a nice day as well

    • Ed April 20, 2011 at 9:21 PM Reply

      Dear Wahyu,

      I sincerely hope your jetlag would soon wear off. I also hope that you had a lot of fun during your last flight😉

      And thank you so much for your further explanation; I truly appreciate it. I will try my best to follow all those regulations. And yes, mustache is like, what — so last century? Oops, I’m sorry for my explicit announcement of my extremely biased — yet true in the eyes of the majority of people today I’m sure — honest opinion. Haha But well, it all comes back to each individual’s different tastes and preferences, I guess.

      Okay, smart-looking formal outfit — checked.🙂

      Wow, that’s pretty unpleasantly shocking for me, I have to say. They decided to only hire 91 candidates out of 4500? I guess it’s gonna be a really huge and tough competition then..

      Once again thank you for sharing all that information, Wahyu. Please be sure that it IS tremendously helpful and that it is highly appreciated.

      Sincerely,

      Ed

      • Wahyu April 21, 2011 at 12:15 AM

        Dear ed

        Thanks , i had a nice set of crew ex hkg . Get to work with sfo based crew . And gonna fly with different set of crew ex sfo … Will depart tonight pass midnight … Hopefully its gonna be a nice and safe flight

        Mustache ?? Hehe its just based on my observation , i hardly see people with mustache theese days . Hehehe

        Yeah 91 was not a big number , but all i can advise is try to focus on how you gonna shine in the interview and Show your best quality , rather than focusing on the numbers and im sure you gonna do great .

        And yes you are most wellcome .

    hi all

    great to find this forum thru the google..

    just want to enquire about the recruitment procedure
    lets say if we pass all the rounds on that day, will we be asked to go back for more interviews the next day? or will we be asked to go back again after a week?

    im sorry if my questions sound a bit weird as im residing at overseas and might hv to apply leave to take part in this recruitment..

    TIA for the answers🙂

    • Wahyu April 21, 2011 at 12:21 AM Reply

      Dear delson

      During my time it was

      PA test
      Group discussion

      Both on the same day

      Then final interview after a few weeks

      The straight to medical check up Depends on your availability to do the med check and their time slot

      I have no information on how they going to do it this time .

      Hope it can give you some pictures about the recruitment process

      • iamdelson April 21, 2011 at 8:14 AM

        thanks for the quick answer
        thats great..at least im able to know roughly how the procedure was like last time..

    Hey guys,

    sorry, I just want to ask another question if it’s alright…

    Is it true that they send you an automatic reply right after you send your application? Something like, ‘we’ve received your application’ kinda reply? ‘Cause if it’s true, then I guess I ought to be nervous now as i didn’t get one…

    Anyway, Wahyu: it sounds a lot like fun! I hope you did have a nice and safe flight with them🙂

    Thank you.

    @Wahyu : how can i contact u? i have some questions regarding the recruitment for CX .

  46. Wahyu May 1, 2011 at 8:56 PM Reply

    A reminder to all the invitees

    1st please do bring along the documents required .

    This will imply on how you gonna work later on , if you going for a flight and you do not bring your travel document , you will get disciplinary action .
    As for the interview in 2008 passport could be sent to cx afterwards but again i recomend you to bring all documents required . As they have mentioned it in the newspaper since the day the advertisement was posted.
    For those whoose passport still in process please do so inform them on your interview day

    As how the interview gonna go , im not sure how they gonna cunduct it this time . But i assume roughly same as what we have in 2008 . And its has been described by fritz .

    As for interview gonna be in english ? Of course it is gonna be in english . If you are fluent in other languages please do mention that . ( eg mandarin or cantoneese or french etc )

    Glasses ? Id recomend you to wear contact lenses on the interview day .

    Wish you all the best of luck

    And im sorry i cant publish my email in here .

      Dear Wahyu,

      Thank you very much for your all posting here. Its really motivated me as non experience in Flight Attendance.

      Buat semua sampai ketemu di Interview CX. Sedikit deg degan juga as non experience FA.

      Salam Semangat buat yang dapat undangan.

    • AW May 4, 2011 at 5:01 PM Reply

      @Wahyu : at your interview day back in 2008 , what did u wore? suit or just a shirt with/ without tie?
      Whats your time-line from interview until you got accepted and go to HK to training?

      • Wahyu May 6, 2011 at 12:41 PM

        was wearing shirt , tie , trousers . i saw some people using suit ( actually they look even better than me ) but as i said before standing out in front of the crowd would be so much better .

        i forgot the time frame , but as i remember interview was around april . and finally the first batch departed to HK on July ( planned was june subject to the availability of the training school , because during my time CX was hiring from so many countries at the same time )

        as for 2011 , we had new HK crew , taiwaneese already started to fly , malaysian just started their training .

        so good luck

    Hi everyone,

    I’ve got my invitation from CX as well. My invitation is on May 13th, 2011 at 08.30 am. To be honest, I am so nervous. Being a flight attendant had never crossed my mind before. I am working at an IT company in South Jakarta at the moment. It’s been almost 6 years for me working in this company.

    So yeah, I still can’t imagine changing from Project & Sales Manager to a Flight Attendant >.<

    I never thought that I would receive the invitation. I wonder how do the recruitment team feel when reading my CV. I graduated as a Bachelor of Computer Science and Master of Human Resource Management ROTFL… I know it's a bit weird….

    I don't care, I feel nervous and excited at the same time.

    I really look forward to the D-Day…

    I am wearing glasses at the moment (pure Astigmatism/Cylinder though) and I can any activities without glasses… so do you think I should take it off on the interview day ?

    I am afraid that I would get rejected due to face factor lol… I have got so many pimples =.=; because I am not the kind of 'smooth' male. I am tough one, I do sports here and there.

    I heard that there will be 3 cards : green , yellow, and red… what do they mean ?

    Wahyu, many of my friends (esp. girls) told me that it's so weird to have male as flight attendant. Most of them are either gay or sissy or playboy. Less than 1% is a normal guy. Is that true ?

    • dearmarintan May 2, 2011 at 7:22 PM Reply

      Hi Jimmy, I’m also scheduled to have an interview on May 13th. But mine will be after you, it’s at 9.15 am.

      About glasses, Wahyu has recommended you to wear contact lenses. However, if you can’t put off your glasses, I’ll suggest you to look and be confident in front of the recruiters. Show them that you’ve got what it takes to be a flight attendant.

      About pimples, you still have enough time to fade them away. If you can’t then you have to make them not really visible. A good concealer or foundation would do you a favor for this problem.

      About the cards, I have no idea because I’ve never attended CX interview before. Don’t worry about it as long as you do your best for the interview.

      And I’d like to emphasize you that being a flight attendant is not only for females. And I don’t think it’s a job which required only certain gender since CX invited you and there are lots of international airlines hire male as their cabin crew.

      If you think that male flight attendants are sissies, then how about male tailors, male chefs and any other jobs that people think it’s more suitable for women yet the best doers are males?

      • Shiny May 7, 2011 at 1:58 PM

        Then I’m gonna be after you because mine will be at 10.00🙂 See you there!

      • niccha May 11, 2011 at 3:02 PM

        Hi Dearmarintan, and all🙂

        I’m Niccha and I’ll have the interview the same day as you!😉 Mine will be conducted at 10.45AM. I really hope I will see you there.

        For everyone who involved in this discussion and shared it with all of us, I would like to say my humble gratitude. This discussion is really helping me.

        All the best for all of us who join this CX interview. Let’s try our best (^.~)/

        Best regards,
        Niccha

  49. Wahyu May 2, 2011 at 9:40 PM Reply

    Dear Jimmy

    first of all , being a flight attendant also never poppped out in my mind , aside when i was a child . growing up. i have never for a split second think that it would become a reality . im an international law graduate , but working in Telecomunication industry for a few years , then move to consumer goods as strategic marketing .

    all i had in mind that to become a flight attendant that you have to have a good look , stunning physique etc etc . maybe i was just lucky enough to get chosen as cx flight attendant .

    as for your last question , i dont know how it is gonna be relevant to the interview process . all i can say is that , i am happy for this job because service industry has been a passion of mine , that was exactly what made me leap from my previous job to this .

    i dont really think about what other might say about male flight attendant . because at the end of the day , its you are the one who live your life . in whatever kind of job there will still be stereotyping , propaganda etc etc . all that matters is you have to be happy doing what you are doing.again its not them who live your life , its you , yourself .

    so rather than focusing on some irrelevant things for the interview , it is better to focus on showing what you can offer to the company .

    wish you the best of luck

    Hi all..🙂

    Salam kenal ya..
    *Uda kebelet sharing banget nih!!!*
    One thing i want to share,
    I do have an interest to be a Flight Attendant or Cabin Crew..
    but..the thing is i never applied for any airways,
    not in this year or even from last 3 years.
    Well, i did attend once Gulf Air Walk-In Interview,
    but it was like long time a go and i failed!
    I don’t even know CX recruiting until i got their email. Isn’t it strange guys?
    I received their email invitation for interview,
    It would be on 12th May @ 10.45.
    I think i really in a confuse situation right now,
    like how could that happened, right???
    I though someone prankin’ on me..
    Because i double-checked my sent item in any of my email accounts,
    i never sent any job application for any airways.
    But after browsing news regarding CX recruiting in Indonesia and check the email address,
    it is matching from the CX recruitment team!
    Even make me more 100% sure after reading this forum..
    Anyhow, i think i have to attend this interview!!!
    I wish i could meet someone who has the same schedule like mine in this forum.. anyone???

    Best Regards,

    Angie

      hi, let me help wahyu to reply this.

      from what i’ve observed, they are gonna recruit 100 FA from Indonesia this time, this number i got from news, and total applicants are around 3000-4000, i don’t know how many applicants they invite to attend initial interview.

      • Andy FZ May 3, 2011 at 1:07 PM

        hii CM, thanks for your help. I just got info from kompas as well, there are only 100 initial FA this year. Angka yang sangat sedikit jika dibanding dengan yang dipanggil buat interview. Lets to the best.
        Anyway thanks CM for your kind attention.🙂

    Hi..all..g mao sharing dikit neh..
    G lolos tes ari ini..n final interview g dpt tgl 16..final intrvw itu dr tgl 16-18..
    Buat discuss 1 itu gk terlalu sulit..cm kasih ide aja..
    Discuss 2 sbnrnya gk sulit jg..itu kyk debat gtu..sbnrnya smw gk terlalu sulit..yg penting jgn ngotot,jgn memaksakan pendapat,jgn motong pembicaraan tmn atau lawan kita..krn yg d nilai bukan hasil jwbn atau perdebatan..tp yg di nilai setau g itu cara kt presentasi..dan smiling..dan humble nya kt..(Itu si stau g ya,.. Hehee)..soalnya yg drtd ngotot n suka motong pembicaraan org tuh..smw gk lulus..
    Dan smw dpt kartu kuning..(Klo di blkg krtu kuning ada tulisan,itu yg lulus)klo gk ad tulisan itu yg tnggu 2 mnggu..
    Tp bagi yg tnggu 2mnggu..masih ada chance ,krn mreka bakal call kalian(itu yg g dgr)
    Trus bis discuss ke 2..kt akan test english..dan itu BENER2222 susaaaahhhh!!!!smw klompok gw yg td lulus..pd triak2 ssh..begitu jg org2 yg td tes dsna..hahaha…(Jd g gk tw deh g bakal lulus gk)..tp yg g dgr..itu cm formalitas..*yah g berharap itu si.hehee..
    Abis tes ini boleh pulang..td g tes dr jam 9.15-4sore..itu ada break 2jam..
    Soal klo gk ad passport g gk tw jg..cm td smw nya pd bw passport yg g liat..(Tp gpp,coba dtg dl aja dan kasih penjelasan k mreka)..

    Soal gk nyampe arm reach kyknya gk terllu brmsalah krn td ad yg jinjit jg..n itu d perbolehkan sm mreka..(Asal jgn trlalu byk jarak nya)
    Uda deh share gw..skg mao tdr..ngantuk sekali..hahaha…kebanyakan nervous nya..moga2 smw prtnyaan kalian k jawab..dan smoga bermanfaat buat kalian…moga2 pd lulus ya..^^
    Dhaaaa….nite guys..

  116. Jimmy May 13, 2011 at 2:57 PM Reply

    Hai semua, gw ijin sharing yah… gw juga gak lolos karena dapat kartu kuning yang disuruh tunggu 2 minggu… gw coba sharing secara detail yah :

    Gw dapat yang tgl 13 jam 08.30 pagi

    1. Tiba di TKP pk 07.50 (udah penuhhhhh sekitar 60 orang udah hadir)
    2. Jam 08.15 mulai disuruh baris di meja registrasi… Disuruh siapin PASSPORT ASLI + KTP ASLI + PRINTOUT EMAIL (jangan lupa bawa pulpen yah gak enak ntar minjem2 hehe)
    3. Kalau 3 itu lengkap, loe akan dikasih formulir.
    4. Isi formulir sesuai PASSPORT + foto 3×4 itu disteples di tempat foto (steples disediakan)
    5. Setelah itu semua digiring masuk ke dalam function room hotel yang sudah ada kursi sekitar 100 buah (full)
    6. 08.45 diputerin video tentang Cathay Pacific…. ntar ada yang presentasi singkat ttg cathay sekitar 20 menit
    7. Semua disuruh lepas sepatu. Tas dan sepatu masukkin ke kolong kursi… semua berbaris untuk tes jangkauan tangan 208 cm (udah ada tandanya gitu di tembok kita disuruh sentuh)…. yang gak sampe boleh jinjit tapi gak boleh loncat hehe
    8. Kalau gak salah, dari sekitar 100 orang yang gugur cuma dua orang karena bener2 gak sampe walaupun mereka jinjit
    9. Pk 09.30 semua nama dibagi2 dalam grup…. satu grup isinya sekitar 12 – 15 orang.
    10. Ntar masing2 grup ada ruangan kecil sendiri2….
    11. Di dalam ruangan itu udah ada kursi dinomorin. Kita duduk sesuai nomor (nomor dikasih tau pas pembagian grup).
    12. Nah ntar abis itu di dalam ruangan itu disuruh discuss.

    Gw tadi topiknya : from the passenger’s point of view, seberapa pentingnya :
    a. Frequent Flyer Programme (Orang nomor 1 – 5 disuruh rembukan)
    b. Inflight Seats dan Lounge (orang nomor 6 – 10 disuruh rembukan)
    c. Flight time schedule + staff efficiency (orang nomor 11 – 14 disuruh rembukan)

    Rembukannya dikasih waktu 2 menit.

    Abis itu tim A silakan berdiri dan presentasi… waktunya 3 menit… siapa aja boleh ngomong… pesan gw hargai teman2 kalian… batasi diri kalian di angka 30 detik – 1 menit… kasian kalau kalian ahhh ehhh ahhh ehhh… tau2 waktu abis dan teman sekelompok lom ngomong apa2…

    Abis itu tim B 3 menit

    Abis itu tim C 3 menit juga

    Abis itu tim A B C disuruh mengungkapkan pendapat secara bersamaan dalam waktu 8 menit mengenai ketiga hal di atas kalau dibandingkan… again… speak up tapi jangan kelamaan kasian yang laen….

    Abis itu di dalam ruangan itu, kita dikasih waktu bebas 5 menit kongkow2 kiri kanan, si instructornya meriksa2 dan bikin catatan sekitar 5 menit…

    abis itu dipanggil satu2 sambil dikasih kartu kuning.

    Yang namanya dipanggil awal2 biasa gak lolos (2 minggu notice)… yang lolos ditahan di dalam ruangan itu 3 menit (pintu tertutup) ada short briefing bentar bahwa mereka harus stay di tempat jangan plg ke rumah karena mau interview lagi jam 2 siang (waktu itu gw liat jam baru jam 10 an pagi)….

    Akhirnya abis itu gw ke Plangi sama mereka2 yang lolos dan maupun tidak (sekitar ber 8)… kenalan2 sana sini buka network dan pergaulan… saling bertukar cerita dan nomor telepon serta pin BB…

    Jam 1.15 mereka balik ke hotel… gw plg ke rumah ngetik di blog dan mau tidur nih… hehehe ngantuk dapat jadwal pagi…

    Good luck buat temen2 setim gw : Ryo, Fransiscus, Jihan, Mei, Nyes… 2 orang lagi namanya sapa yah hehehe….

    I have passed group discussions and waiting for the final interview on 17 may. Based on your experience, what will it look like to be?Is it just face to face interview or something else?How many steps which I have to pass after final interview to get this position? And last one, they asked all the documents needed such as ktp, kartu keluarga, and ijazah in english, how about that?I don’t think there’s enough time to do all the things, is it possible to bring the Indonesian original?thank for your time.

    Dear GE

    During my time , it was the it moment . it was one on one interview session . at this very part they gonna ask you every little detail about you including your past working experience , your family etc etc and whatever written on the CV .

    about the documents , you could bring those documents to a certified translator . i think they can have it done in one day . just get all the documents ready and have it translated .

    dont forget to bring all the required original copy .

    if you pass the final interview they going to bring you to another room to fill out some forms for the visa application . and then do arrangement for you to do the medical check up .

    if you pass the medical check up then within a month or so , you will get the acceptance email from cx regarding your pre departure briefing etc etc .

    there you will meet your future colleagues . your batch mate , those are the people who gonna be your family in hk .

    during medical check up , i remembered there was one person who didnt make it . i dont know about the other people from other batch . but anyway , if you are in a good health , i believe you could pass the medical check up .

    Thx u so much Mr. Wahyu..
    U really help us a lot =)
    There are two more things that I want to ask you:
    1. How long is the one on one interview for each candidate?
    2. Regarding the medical check up, how strict are them about ur teeth? 3 years ago I got one of my back bottom teeth removed. Should I get dental implant done before the medical check up?

  124. ge May 14, 2011 at 10:44 PM Reply

    thx for your advice Mr. Wahyu but is it still possible to say that our documents are still in progress to be translated and meanwhile we bring the Indonesia version to them?

    Mr. Wahyu can we translate it by ourselves or is it needed to be legalized? And what is Hongkong Identity Card?I’m very confused about this. thx for your answer

    Dear Ling

    1 . how long was it ? mmm i remembered it was quite long. guessing around 20 – 25 mins . i couldnt remember exactly . but at the end it was more like chatting to me . then afterwards they ask me to go to the next room and gave me a lot of forms to fill out . then i need to do medical check up . for me i chose to go directly , because i didnt want to waste more time as i was still working for a company at that time .

    2 . regarding the teeth , it was more for personal records . ( knock on wood ) if some bad things happen they could recognize you by the data of your teeth . and as for aesthetic reason , as long as all the front teeth is ok , i think it shud be fine . even me myself , i dont have a perfect set of teeth . hehehehe in fact now im using braces . been a few months already .

    i hope my information helps

    Dear Wahyu,

    Now I’m using a braces. Is it okay if I still use it during the final interview n medical check up? Because till now, the treatment is not yet done.

    Thank you..:)

    Dear all

    Basically , looking through my experience , as long as you meet their requirements . they will recruit you .
    i just want to emphasize that whatever i wrote here is basically based on my previous experience . i may not know if they have different requirements this time .

    get all your worries out . and do your best for your final interview . this is where personality play its part

    wishing you for the best .

  132. Wahyu May 16, 2011 at 12:53 AM Reply

    Dear all

    Yeah i remembered there was one of my colleague who got the yellow card after the final interview , and finally got an email back requesting her to do the medical check up . pls do check your email from time to time .

    as for documents , i would recommend you to bring it to the certified translator . as i said before , they could have it done within one day .

    if you ask me is it gonna be allowed to bring just the indonesian , i really cant asnwer that .

    one message from me , please try to get use to prepare things in good management . as cx is interviewing you means that they have expectations to be filled . bare in mind there were thousands . and now may just be few hundreds or less fighting for the same positions . if you just give your half effort , would you think they would consider you ? i believe there are other candidates who gave 1000 percent effort for this .

    failure to present documents as it is mentioned if im not mistaken on the card , may result in cancellation of the interview . this reflects if in the future you gonna fly , then you do not bring your documents , you will be offloaded from the flight and goes into your record .

    as for HK identity card , is for some of you who may have or had lived in hk before . then you have the HK identity card . as for you who hasnt lived in hk , then you dont have the hk identity card . then leave it blank . that is the reason why they put ” if applicable ” .

    as for braces , im sure they gonna ask you when will it be removed . all i can say is , if you meet their requirements . you dont need to worry about this .

    again i just want to emphasize that im writing here based on my experience .

    best regards

    @Wahyu: Hi Wahyu, thanks for the encouragement and for sharing all the info, it helps us A LOT to picture what would happen next. We really really appreciate it. May I ask you a favor?

    I’m just wondering how the living (expense) standard in HK is. I read a forum, stating that since 1995 CX pay no basics, since HK has hi cost of living, we need to cover foods, transports, clothings, internet, laundry etc.

    Is it hard to manage money to save and to be sent home for our parents etc? Could you please share your experience bout this? This has nothing to do with the interview tho, I will still fight for it😉 just wonder.

    Thanks in advance for your kind answer.🙂

    Hey everyone,

    It seems like the longest week for some of you here. For the rest who didn’t make it through, please don’t give up. There are many others opportunity available for you. Learn from your past mistake and polish on your personality and general knowledge.

    I was lucky to managed every round smoothly, yesterday was my final interview. It was another long, mind blowing and nerve wrecking process for me. I watched people come and go, some are back for another round of English test, some are going to fill up the Visa application form, some just left. I was among the last 10 people to be interviewed on Monday, past 5pm, was there since 1pm.

    One to one interview wasn’t so bad at least not as what I thought it would be. The interviewer was friendly and to certain extend she was quite chatty. She asked many personal questions, experienced and knowledge of the job. My tips, be brutally honest to the interviewer, they are trained to identify if you were lying or not. I know some of you might want to come out with fantastic answers to make yourself looks good. DONT! be yourself, be pleasant, be polite and smile. Show them your enthusiasm and personality that stand out among the rest. Lastly get enough rest and pray hard.

    When the interview was done, she (the interviewer) invited me back to the holding room, to filled up the Visa application form and select a medical examination appointment date and time.

    I wish everyone all the best, to those who have frequently contributed to this forum by giving tips and suggestion, I want to say thank you and truly appreciate it.

    Good Luck

    first of all, Congratulation for all of u who made it through!. c u really soon..

    @EW : untuk med-ex mereka akan cek mata, tinggi/berat badan, cek darah, paru-paru (rontgen), tes pendengaran, dan untuk cek kulit & tubuh tetap pakai pakaian dalam kok.

    @Agnes : semua itu tergantung lifestyle masing-masing individu. kalau dengan salary yang kita dapat selama mengatur dengan baik masih bisa menabung+kirim uang ke Indonesia kok+kalau stay di luar HK kita akan dapat tambahan uang saku.

    @ge : just wait and see, selama masih dalam proses recruitment semua bisa terjadi. just keep check ur email within this 2 weeks.

    Hi all🙂
    congratulations and all the best for your interview process..btw if i may, i would like to ask something.. hehe
    i just had my one on one interview, after the interview, this is what they said to me “please wait for 6 weeks for your application status, and if you do not hear from us after that period, it means your application was unsuccessful” and right after that, they invited me back to the holding room to fill out visa application forms and to arrange medical check up dates.
    and i have asked around, alot of people go through the same thing.
    my question is, does this mean we are accepted and all depends on medical check up?
    or are we still on consideration?
    but if we are.. why are they asking us to fill out visa form and medical check up ?😦
    i am very confused hehehe @_@

    thanks again for the posts

    if you guys have time , create a facebook group . or as now i believe everybody got a blackberry , create a group .
    you can start discussing , getting to know each other , arrange a get together . because who knows that person will be your room mate for the next 2 years . and will be your family in the future .

    sincerely , cant wait to welcome you guys in hk . more indonesian crew to swap flight with . and most importantly more family members to share our life with .

I just got the green card and it asked me to wait 6 weeks. Is it possible that the recruitment schedule divided into 2 parts (for those who can fly earlier than others so they fill up he visa form first, others wait). I am confused here because the interviewer said that all of my answers given to him were what he was expected and it ran quiet smooth actually…thx

      in our days

      after the med check , all of the successful applicants got emailed regarding the pre departure briefing roughly at the same time .

      only a few were late ; and i was one of the late receiver of the acceptance email .as in my case , i have a few issues regarding my name. where in birth certificate was spelled DJ , and in all my graduation certificate written with J .

      enough with the me story . anyway after the briefing in about one month the group started to depart

      first batch Induction 37 ( 30 people ). 38( 30 people ) . 39 ( only 2 people , they were joined with the hk crew for the induction class ) , 40 ( 29 people )

      first induction departed in july , and my induction departed in august .

      i hope roughly can answer your question.

    hi cincan & wahyu,
    untuk tempat tinggal di hongkong,
    kita dapat tempat tinggal atau harus cari dan sewa sendiri?
    tengkyu

      I think they should have informed you on the first day . ( you were not paying attention i guess ) hehe

      anyway every new joiners might have different arrangements . like what me and cincan have is different from what Ms . Dhee has .

      if they going to offer you the same arrangement as me and cincan , it would be housing provided for the first 2 years . which is a sharing 2 bedrooms apartment for 2 people . so each person has his/her own room .

      housing will be on the same gender basis .

      after 2 years , you can opt out to find your own apartment . of choose to stay for another year in company provided apartment .

      after 3 years , you definitely must look for your own apartment ( housing allowance provided as per arrangements in your contract )

      hope it helps

    Dear Wahyu and All,

    i am also one of the candidate of CX recruitment 2011 and i passed until medical check up. but still, i have to wait in 6 weeks for the result

    in your opinion how many chance that i have? 50%? 70%? i just really, really nervous.

    i also have an issue. My National Identity Card has a different address with my Family Card. Do you think it can create a problem?

    I am with my best friend who formerly worked with Singapore Airlines. She passed until Medex too

    My friend said, CX salary is lower that SQ but they have a great environment to work. is that true? Have you found racism or very strong seniority in CX?

    About the salary, do you think we can afford a decent life in HK and still saving?

    its a great great thanks for reply my message

  167. Wahyu May 22, 2011 at 7:59 PM Reply

    Dear Doni

    i could say you have a good chance already . all i can say for now is just to pray and prepare for whatever possibilities that might happen .

    Documents wise , i cant answer because its all up to the HK government . the major points should be birth certificate – passport and your graduation letter should be in line ( as per my previous experience )

    i dont know exactly how much SQ cabin crew earns . but in average should be not much different . comparatively to the middle east airlines , their earning is tax free . while other airlines we have to pay tax . hehehe

    if you ask me regarding salary , in my opinion , at the end of the day is not how much you earn .but how much you SAVE !

    so its all returned to your own lifestyle . so get use to the term ” smart spending ” .

    through my experience , i still can save and send back to my family in indonesia . so dont worry .

    Dear Wahyu, Cincan & Ms Dhee

    One big question popped up in my mind. I am muslim. I have to pray 5 times a day.

    I just would like to ask, how muslim CX Flight Attendant manage their time to pray onboard? especially in Long-Haul Flight. Can we pray in cabin crew rest area?

    How about live in HK? is there a mosque nearby?

    Please kindly share your stories.

    Have a pleasant flight ^_^

    • dhee May 27, 2011 at 10:59 AM Reply

      dear doni,

      well… i’ll try to answer your question carefully, since this is a sensitive issue. during longhaul flights, i guess there wouldn’t really be any problem, you can try to find some spare time to do it in crew rest area, out of people’s sight. just ask and simply explain your section leader nicely that you need 5-10 minutes to pray, so your colleagues will know where you are, what you are doing, when you will be back, when you are missing.

      as for short flights (even longhauls sometimes), there are times when you will be so busy in the cabin, and find it difficult to find any spare time. when everybody is busy, your colleagues couldn’t afford to have lack of one man power even only for 10 minutes. what you can do… maybe you can combine two prayers into one time before or after the flights. the fact is, sometimes we don’t have much choice. people need us, need our care and attention when they are traveling. don’t be surprise, some people do really need our full time attention and extra care during the flight. anyways… when you start flying you will see and suit yourself on how you’re gonna it depending on the situations.

      so… see you in hong kong then!🙂

      what i know, there are some mosques in tsim sha tsui, wanchai, and central. from gold coast, the place you’re gonna stay, it will take about 30-45 minutes by bus. for friday prayer you can do it also at indonesian consulate general in causeway bay.

    Hi Everyone,

    It is no doubt that everyone must have done their best in pursuing their dream through this selection. I congratulated all who successfully gained an end.

    I, myself will undergo the Medical Check up on the 25th, and for sure to keep my finger crossed.

    I have few queries that might have been risen up by some candidates but not distinctively conveyed, regarding

    1. the final information of our passing..after the medical check being undergone, how long would it take?

    2. The preparation before going to HKG, what are things to be highlighted, as Wahyu had experienced it previously?

    Thanks, and May our dream leap to the sky….

  173. Emma May 24, 2011 at 9:32 AM Reply

    I was fortunate enough to have Ms. Ita’s e-mail and phone numbers, she was just so humble when I approached her after the first day of CX interview for some tips for the final interview. Oh right, if you guys don’t remember, Ms. Ita is the senior flight attendant from Indonesia. She was the one presenting the CX interview stages and the 20min clip/presentation.

    Basically for those who made it to the medical check up, all we need to do now is to wait for 6 weeks. My interviewer told me that regardless if your application is successfull or not, they will get in touch with you (most probably through e-mail, like how they invited us to the interview), all within 6 weeks. Naturally we do hope that we could speed things up, but they need to re-evaluate all the candidates again.

    I did ask Ms. Ita what are the major factors which would determine our fate in becoming the lucky 100 to be chosen for the training in HK? Ms. Ita said that CX used to base it on looks, but now apperance is secondary. Yes peeps, she said it herself. Because today, CX priorize professionalism and interpersonal skills.

    Truth be told, I am dying for the big news from CX. I kept questioning myself, have I done enough to be chosen? Would they find anything wrong from my med check, background check, or trouble with the HK immigration? I e-mailed Ms. Ita and she told me to not worry, CX wouldn’t bother to let you go through the med check and waste their medical expenses if they think that you have no potential.

    Personally, I don’t know why they’ve chosen 140-160 candidates and I decided not to bother Ms. Ita with too many questions for she’s been too kind to have answered all of my doubts and gave me a boost of confidence. But I tried to make sense out of it and maybe, just maybe, out of 140-160 candidates, not all of them would pass the medical check up, background check and maybe some didn’t do as well as a few others in the overall interview (we were constantly evaluated) or maybe the HK immigration couldn’t grant your visa application. A lot of things could go wrong and CX needs 100 people, so I guess they are playing it safe by giving themselves more room for error and more choices obviously.

    Till then, just stay positive🙂 Oh right, how did your interview go @dearmarintan? Great blog by the way.

    • Wahyu May 26, 2011 at 12:36 AM Reply

      Dear emma

      I guess you have mentioned everything , very well said .

      Just want to highlighted few things .

      Constantly evaluated .
      Until this day me and other crew has been constantly evaluated . Start from day 1 in hk .

      140-160 chosen for medicak check .

      Correct . Things might happened . Thats why cx need to play safe . Might happened working visa for some people might not be granted . Though u are qyalifued as cx crew , if the government said no , cx can do nothing , other than pick another qualified person who has been granted the visa by the government

      Back to constantly evaluated . Thats why once i have emphasized in this forum . Dont give your half for your expectation , as you are always being evaluated .

      You guys are down from thousands , and now as emma said is down to 140-160 . And final would be 100 or even less like my batch during 2008 .. So always give the best out of you

      Wish you all the best .

      • Emma May 27, 2011 at 1:26 AM

        Dear Wahyu,

        You are truly such a big help to us cabin crew hopefuls🙂

        I have recently received an update from Airin, she was in this blog, well we talk on twitter. Anyway, she was saying that CX would inform some of the successful candidates this upcoming mid-june and then they’ll send the first batch for training by late june. I don’t know how true this is, so if you could kindly clarify if this is just a rumor or is the real deal? Now why would they divide us into different batches? Was it the case back in 2008? Because one of my friends who made if for med check did say that the interviewer said the training is set on Late July-early August this year for indonesia recruitment.

        Another thing which I do hope that you wouldn’t mind answering, would CX ask you to constantly weight yourself? Because I know SQ is crazy about BMI, which is not even accurate, considering how each of us falls under different body shapes (pear shaped, hour glass, apple shaped, etc), it’s just an easier option to ensure that the candidates are within the normal BMI weight. 18-25. However, SQ is very strict, they want the stewardess to be under 22, is it the same case with CX? When I did my med check, the nurse counted my BMI and it was 22.2😦 do you think it would affect my chance in getting picked for the final 100? I mean I look porpotionate, standing at 167cm (maybe that’s why). They said I have big bones (not sure if that’s even scientifically proven) because don’t look as heavy as I weigh, so it’s all the mass of my bones. Then again, SQ wouldn’t care, I sure hope CX doesn’t work that way😦

        I hope my questions wouldn’t trouble you too much.

        Best regards,
        Candy

      • airin May 30, 2011 at 7:33 PM

      sorry babes, i think you have to be ready when they require you to go to hong kong on the day they have set. normally there’s gonna be a person from cx office in jakarta who will be in charge to take care of you prior to your departure to hong kong. just consult that person, tell your problem.

        dear ruby,

        100 persons are going to be divided into few induction classes. each induction will depart to hong kong in different weeks. i don’t know how they arrange who’s gonna go first and who’s gonna go next. let’s say if they need you to start flying in september, that means you will have to depart to hong kong at around end of july to get some trainings for about 4 weeks. do you think they can wait for you? don’t lose hope, there’s always a solution to every problems. just do your best to be available at the time they need you, if you really want this job. good luck, okaaaay!🙂

    hahahaha… chill out, emma! don’t think too much, it’s not healthy!… lol. you won’t find any problems from hk immigration unless you have a history of robbing a bank, or smuggling drugs… lol. and no… cx won’t ask you to constantly weight yourself, but of course cx will encourage you to take care of your health, and there’s a standard grooming procedure that you will have to follow. just imagine… when my classmates and i first joined cx, we still had some baby chub… lol. so don’t worry about your body weight. so now… just relax, be confident, spend your time with your family, friends, loved ones, as much as you can…🙂

    • Emma May 27, 2011 at 5:08 PM Reply

      Yeah, I’m always worried that my face may appear chubby because I have a rather square jawline, not very oval. With a bit of bronzer on my cheekbones, it would usually fix everything (wonders of make up). I do like the shape of my face, I’ve learnt that flaws makes you prettier, perfect is boring.

      But do you think my BMI is too much? 22.2?? I will definitely take better care of myself, because at least CX would be my motivation.

      As far as I know, I have an excellent background history, never attempted nor committed any offenses/crimes, never been kicked out of any countries, so far every visas I applied for had been granted, so and so. I hope the HK immigration would like me and grant me a visa XD~ amen!

      It is so nerve wrecking, I just want to kick start my career with CX. This is my biggest goal this year!

    I just had an email from Indonesian Cathay Pacific that require me to fill up the medical form again. I got the phone call as well. She said that there was an unfortunate incident regarding our medical check up documents. The clinic lost it somewhere and probably got stolen. But she said the doctor still keeps some of the medical file such as blood test, urine, and x-ray. Well I really hope that it wouldn’t be such a problem *fingerscrossed*. I was just afraid that it can lead to a failure. By the way, Wahyu CinCan and anybody who can answer my question. Is it true that we will have another medical check up in Hongkong? So the Medical Examination will be done twice? Or was it only in Indonesia?

  182. Emma June 1, 2011 at 6:17 AM Reply

    This is so nerve wrecking? I think I might actually end up with a heart attack by the end of this 6 weeks😦 CX should’ve posted a warning which goes something like this ‘not for the weak hearted’ hahahaha…oh pardon my lame joke.

    Anyway, I have just received an update from Airin and she said that she was called back because her eye sights were not 6/6..I don’t remember what’s mine exactly but it was of two different numbers, something like 6/7 or 5/6, because i know my right eye is slightly worse. I do remember other people having the same results as me, yeap..I poked around a lot at the clinic.

    In addition, Airin said that some of the documents went MISSING/STOLEN? Seriously now, who would steal our medical results? I am really worried and it’s only 7 am in the morning! For one thing, I didn’t get any phone calls from the clinic but that doesn’t mean that I am not encountering any problems. I left my Malaysian phone number with them, complete with the country code, for example, (+60) 017-8888-333. But I really don’t think that the nurses would know how to make an international phone call with their office phones, it is troublesome, so they might actually go … ‘oh well, can’t get through…’ *hangs up* *cross my name out* DX.

    I DON’T NEED THAT!! So I guess i’ll have to wait till about 11am my time to try and make a phone call to them, I really do hope that my medical check up went good, nothing abnormal about me and that my file is still in their file cabinet somewhere or in the good hand of CX!! Because if anything goes wrong, I would have to fly back to Jakarta for this one medical check up.

    This is like another faith and endurance test from God. Keep praying peeps, I hope that everything will turns out great for all of us hopefuls, positive thinking!🙂

    I bet all the candidates who already did medical check up have d same nerves like me.. Or I might be the worse.. I feel that I didnt give the best for the final interview and I feel Im just really rush when I filled the HK working permit.

    Btw I have the questions regarding about the process..
    It says that the passport should be expiry for minimum the next 18 months and mine just left 12 months.. Furthermore, I also concern about the medical check up since my friend that I met on the final interview got called from Cathay to fix his teeth and send the letter from the doctor to cathay that he will do it..

    Finally just hope to hear good news from Cathay, still 3,5 weeks to go..

    Okay, well here’s what happened in the last few days. I did call the clinic and the nurse said that it was all up to CX whether or not we’ve passed or *knocks on wood* failed in becoming the lucky 100 candidates to be flown to HK.

    The nurse claimed that everything is alright, and that if anything goes wrong or if your medical check up is unsuccessful, CX will be the very person/group to inform you! But that is not the case I see…so I don’t know it is pretty confusing. I was asking if my medical check up is alright, but I was in such a rush that I’ve forgotten to ask them if they’ve lost my medical file….I reckon that may be a little offensive to them though. So I really don’t know if they’ve lost my file or if there’s anything wrong with my results. I can only hope that CX people has it.

    It’s already JUNE!! I am anxious, so anxious…. trying to keep a positive mind!! I really am trying now, it’s like my positivity bar is running low. Keep strong faith yeah guys? I :))

    Hello all! I’m new to the forum🙂 I’m also the candidate for CX, and Thank God, I’ve passed all the stages until med-ex.
    My passport will be expired in 14 months, I told them that after I filled the visa, and they said they’ll email me if they want me to renew it. I see some of you got an e-mail from CX to renew your passport already, but unfortunately I haven’t😦 would that be a sign that I fail? Well I really want to keep positive, but I’m just worried :s
    Thanks for sharing everything here, good luck for all of us🙂

    • dearmarintan June 11, 2011 at 7:26 PM Reply

      Dear flyhigh, from what Wahyu has told me quite long time ago, if you’re about to get hired by CX, they will ask you to translate into English all the important documents needed. And since graduation (to be) letter is of course important to their consent (of deciding whether you can join them asap), just assume that everything is so far going positively with you. So pray for the best, you had your moment of waiting and now it’s almost about time to shine…

      I hope that this explanation will go clearly to the other CX wannabes… I am so sorry for not replying any of your inputs after I got rejected on my first GD. It’s not that I didn’t want to help you guys, but I didn’t have any idea about how to respond to your questions since I didn’t even manage to get in the same boat with you. And it hurts sometimes to read your wishful-waiting comments.. so I hope you don’t get mad at me…

      Thanks for those who encourage me, anyway… (sandy, ella, emma, etc) I hope you guys make it to CX… amen…

  194. Emma June 16, 2011 at 4:59 PM Reply

    Hi peeps!!

    It’s been 3 weeks since the end of Medical Check up on the 25th of May (I believe that’s when we start the count down)….and I am a nervous wreck…3 more weeks to go and I’ve heard nothing from CX, neither did any of the girls and guys I’m keeping in touch with.

    Every time I hear the little ‘bing’ from my mac (means, a new mail in my inbox), I would hold my breath and click on my inbox sign, but it would either be my mum and her forwarded chain mails (Note to self: Tell mum to stop doing that!!) or some random mails. Maybe there’s some serious internet problem in Hong Kong eh? (I wish)

    I’m kind of glad that there are a bunch of us here in this forum, thanks to Intan <3, to share my thoughts and worries with. Good to know that I'm not the only one who will be signing myself up into the mental asylum at the end of this 6 weeks waiting period (kiddin').

    Just the other day, my friend (it was Ella) updated her FB wall post "I can wait to Fly~" my heart stopped beating for a few seconds…my brain drained off its blood!! She was just excited for an e-mail for CX…oh gosh…another 3 more cases like this and I would have a stroke!!

    Keep a strong faith guys and girls🙂 I know I'd still be grateful no matter what the outcome will be CX😀

    Hi Emma,
    just want to know whether I still have any chance to join CX coz I did’nt been called to fill any HK visa form and medical check after my final interview on 17may,,
    do u have someone got same issues with me?
    how bout your medical??
    is everything good??

  196. Emma June 17, 2011 at 8:21 AM Reply

    Hi there🙂

    Yes I happen to know a lot of people in your situation. To be frankly honest, I am not too certain about it either. Here’s why:

    On my final interview day, I know two people didn’t make it because my helper who was waiting outside with the mums saw a girl and a guy walked out and said they didn’t make it because after the final interview, they were told to wait for 6 weeks but they weren’t told to fill up the HK immi forms and to schedule a med check. Well that was on my interview day, I left fairly early..around 1pm..so I didn’t know how the rest of the day went.

    Then again, I saw a lot of people filling up the immigration forms and were scheduled for med checks on that day itself, nearly everybody who came out of the final interview did so! It was really confusing because, even some people who were told to do the english test because they’ve failed the first one, managed to fill up the HK immi forms and med check.

    I really don’t know how CX is selecting us..but what I know from the nurses at the clinic, they said they are expecting 160 CX candidates for the med-check..and I know that CX is trying to recruit 100 candidates only.

    So this is just me trying make sense out of things, perhaps from the 160 candidates, they would evaluate everything again, from your interviews, medical check up results (if you’re fit to fly), background check (criminal records, reference letters, etc) and to see if HK immigration would issue a visa for you. 160 is a safe number for them because they would have more choices and room for errors, you’ll never know, some candidates may not be fit to fly or HK immi may not want to issue a visa for him/her because of a past criminal records or something, those are just some of the possibilities.

    I’ve received a similar question from another CX interviewee a few days ago, he went through final interview but didn’t fill up immigration form and no med-check..he asked if there’s hope for him. I said, well it is unlikely…but think of it this way. The trainings (I’m not sure which batch, as they will be split into different batches) will start around beginning of July (just a rumour) and beginning of August (that was what one of the interviewer told my friend).

    Till then, keep your fingers crossed..you’ll never know. CX may pull a little last minute addition and just get you and many other in your situation to fill up a medical check up form and immigration form :))

    I hope this helps, please don’t hesitate to ask if you have anymore questions. I’m not an expert, but we can exchange thoughts and updates from CX😀

    Two days ago I’ve also recieved an email from CX, same as yours. They want me to send them a letter mention my exact expected date to be graduated. Thank God the email finally arrived, huh? After a loooong waiting period. Though the e-mail wasn’t a good news yet because they haven’t told us whether we are accepted, but hopefully it will be, immediately after we complete all the requirements🙂
    What do you think about the email, flyhigh? Is it possible they will wait for us until we graduate? Or what? What do you think, guys?
    For those who are still waiting for the golden e-mail, keep your fingers crossed and your spirit high. Good things come to those who wait. Keep sharing, okaay? Wishing all the best for us🙂

    good luck alll! :*

  202. Emma June 20, 2011 at 4:22 PM Reply

    I don’t mean to burst your bubble or anything but this is just what I observe and can be taken into consideration.

    Somebody told me that the waiting period starts after the final medical check up day, which I think was on the 25th of May? If that’s so, we have to wait till 7th of July. Oh gosh, I sure hope that they are not the kind of firm who would delay things … A LOT!! *fingers crossed* I am hoping that they will inform me within this week or next, before July please *kneels on the floor*

    Anyway, this is what I know from my interviewer. She stressed me that all the files we submitted to them on our final interview date must be in english (thankfully I have translated them all to English) because the HK immigration is rather fussy, if they don’t understand it, they’ll toss them away!! So it is possible that they are still processing the visa!! Oh dear, I hope it’s not the case. Hopefully they are done and are ready to take us under their wings (pun intended..lol).

  203. Emma June 22, 2011 at 7:06 PM Reply

    Cathay Pacific just replied me!! They said that they are prepared to offer me a position as their Cabin Crew, them a long list of information that may be applicable to my employment with CX. It’s too long and honestly I am still too light headed. I need to read it at least 8 more times!!

    But basically, I need to tell them if I am up for it or not (well duh! OF COURSE I AM lol lol lol)..and if I’m ready, I would have to attend a briefing on the 7th of July at Crowne Plaza again. And they will arrange for my flight to HK on the 26th of July…27th another briefing and then 1st August..let the training begin!! :))

    One thing that I am not too certain is that they mentioned this offer is conditional, in a way that if I am not able to get a work permit from the HK immigration..then…*knocks on wood* so lets hope everything goes well with my work permit.

    Good luck to you peeps! Check your e-mails😀

    I need to control my breathing …. seriously light headed .. in a good way wheeee~

  206. Sophia June 22, 2011 at 10:08 PM Reply

    Dear Emma and Flyhigh,

    I am Sophia, a flight attendant candidate for cx as well. Firstly, I would like to congratulate you guys for getting the positions! I want to ask you guys a question, I got an email on the 16th of June from CX asking for a reference letter, just like Flyhigh. However, there’s this misunderstanding between me and the lady from my university department. She mentioned that the letter can’t be issued until mid July. I then replied CX explaining that I couldn’t submit it before mid-July. Instead, I sent them the screenshot of my university account that stated that I have fulfilled my graduation requirement. Yesterday, however, the lady called me and told me that she has misunderstood my request. She thought that I was asking for my graduate certificate. I sent an email to CX right away to tell them about that. But I noticed that my reference number has changed (the email that was asking for my reference no was four digit), but when I clarified about the letter, they replied me with my reference number back to my interview reference no, which was 3 digits. I asked them to give me 3 more days after the deadline (they previously stated that I need to send the letter at my earliest convenience before 22th of June). But they replied me mentioning that I can send the letter AT MY EARLIEST CONVENIENCE, without any date. Is that a signal that they have turned down my application?:( i am really worried. Thank you so much for your kind attention.

    • noodlyemilie June 23, 2011 at 6:36 AM Reply

      Dear Sophia,

      I think that you are not the only one, I am in contact with another CX candidate (Dani) and he’s having some doubts as well, here’s a small bit of it:

      “Can I ask you something? In the e-mail you received, what is your reference number, besides the three numbers they gave you for the initial interview. I was just wondering because mine used to be 616, and then they sent an e-mail then it becomes 616/48, I hope the next two numbers mean something.”

      Now, I need to know more about this whole reference number. First of all, my reference number was 1457 (so that’s already 4 digits)..I attended the interview on Saturday (I think ;p) and I believe that my reference number represents the number I’m in line for. Meaning, I’m the 1457th applicant, because I know that the number grew and grew.

      Anyway, it would be great if you could tell me your original reference number and the additional digit(s) they replied you with. I don’t know much about this, because CX has never sent me anything till yesterday, but I want to help you to find out more about this and hopefully solve it.

      Okay, when you read the following, please understand that I am just trying to make sense out of things. THIS IS NOT THE DEFINITE ANSWER …. (because I’m probably wrong, but it make sense to me and hopefully this is the case for Dani and hopefully, you too):

      What I ‘think’ is going on is that Dani’s additional 2 digit numbers on the which is (48) “it may” represents the induction or which batch he will be assigned for when he goes for training. In the e-mail CX sent me yesterday, they seemed to be bolding and highlighting the important points of the e-mail, one of it is regarding the beginning of my scheduled training (if I get my HK visa of course), it’s written in blue .. ’01 August 2011 (Induction 28)’.

      I was in contact with Ms. Ita (I love her so much, she is my CX Goddess) and she said the 100 selected candidates and this is what she wrote to me:

      “I’m not sure if all of You will be inform about the confirmation at the same time ,, but your training will be divided into 18-20 per class. And You may travel in 3 different dates. ”

      So it might be possible that Dani is in induction 48 because CX would need to split us into different batches and label us, maybe the other batches could be 38, 48, 58 and so on? But WHY 8? Well if you base it on superstitious beliefs 8 is a ‘lucky’ number in the chinese culture or maybe it sounds cooler than “Oh yeah, team 1, team 2, team foxtrot, alpha dog…” but okay, enough jokes, this may be the best possible answer, the induction is in August (8th month) and I believe that there are more than just us Indonesian recruits, they would probably expect more from other countries from Singapore or Japan, etc..so maybe the September recruits (if there’s any) would be in induction 29, 39…you get the drill..it’s just to make it easier for CX to keep track of us.

      Am I going out of topic? I think I wrote too much, sorry..it’s a disease really. Bottomline, Sophia, please tell me the extra digits. Maybe I can help to refer it to Ms. Ita, she may have the answer.

      Love,
      Emma

  207. Sophia June 23, 2011 at 10:59 AM Reply

    Thank you so much for your kind respond, Emma! I am happy to read it, though I am abit worried at the same time. My original reference number that I use for the interview was 381. But when they sent me an e-mail requesting for my reference letter, it changed to 4826/85 (so unfortunately for me, there is no 8 at the back). Two days after I replied and mentioned that the reference letter was unavailable, I sent them an e-mail requesting for an extension for my due date, they then replied and changed the reference number back to 381/67. So for my case, there is no 8 (the ultimate lucky number). I wonder what actually is happening:( Is it possible that the number that is written when they request for additional infos represents the people who has been chosen so far?

    And thank you so much for your respond, Emma! I don’t know Ms Ita personally but I was there listening when she patiently explained to the crowd of candidates on the last interview. I can feel her that she’s truly nice. And I have read through this blog and I think you too! I hope I can see you in person! Good luck for the induction days!:)

    @Sansan: how did they reply you?for my case, they asked me to send them my reference letter (in bold) at my earliest convience without anymore due date.

    I’d like to share my joy here and wish you all good luck.. My sister is still waiting for the email as well. I’ll pray for you… *hugs*

    I have several questions to ask tho.
    1. I just read bou this reference number thing. Does it mean anything? My ref number on the interview invitation was 299, and the reference number on the Golden Email is also 299. What does it mean?

    2. I’m leaving on Aug 9, but the pre-departure briefing is also on July 7 (sooo.. see you guys there! ^^) Does anyone know whether we have to stay in Jakarta for any possible eeting with CX between Jul 7 and our departure date??

    Thanks guys for the sharing above and looking forward to seeing you all in HK.
    Keep the spirit! Keep the faith!!

    Hugs..

    BTW ada yang tau, apakah kita akan bsia ke luar negeri antara tangal 7 dan keberangkatan ke HK?
    Dan.. apakah kita sudah pasti bisa berangkat?
    Coz it is said that the offer is conditional to working permit in HK right?

    Thanks all =)

    • Emma June 28, 2011 at 2:48 PM Reply

      Hi Vera,

      I asked Ms. Melody, the one who sent me the CX email, she was also the interviewer regarding the work permit.

      Ms. Wendy replied and she said that it is considered to be a conditional offer. Meaning, if HK immi can’t grant you a work permit, then CX wouldn’t be able to employ you, automatically that means you wouldn’t be able to fly to HK for the training!!

      So keep your fingers crossed🙂 I knew I wasn’t 100% happy when I received the e-mail. This is why ;p not too worry. If it’s meant to be, it will be ours😀

      Love,
      Emma

    congrats to all of u who succed pass all the test.

    if someone of u who knows what is the parameter that being valued/judged at group discussion 1 & 2. i’m very curious, because (dont mean to be arrogant, but my english was good enough, well enough at presentation time, smile upon my face, barely stiff because of that🙂 ) but i didn’t pass.
    so anyone knows? so i could prepare my self if cx open this vacant again….
    thank u so much if some one could give me the answer🙂

    regards,
    jamal

      i would say that they very appreciate your gesture and personality. and in my opinion, in the second stage they eliminate candidates based on physical appearance. that also applied in the first round, but it wasn’t as significant as in the second round.

      in the first round, they eliminate ones who really don’t have the required body shape/ im sorry to say, for example, the ones who r a little bit fat. but if you were active, but smile all the time, or the other way around, all i can say, you will pass.
      i passed. but the interview (jeff) noted me that i was quite active but i had to smile more.

      but on the second round, i had noticed that the interviewer was very very aware about our gesture. (i have been told before by Ms. Ita, that gesture and personality is all what they have been looking for – as the service language can be trained, but not personality). my english may be is not as good as u are, but as i was told that by ms. Ita, i tried my best to be active, bubbling and out stand in my group, and the very important thing was, eye contact with groups, opponents and the interviewer herself, and also try to hold your hands steadily in front of your stomach instead if waving them all around as you were speaking your thoughts. and also, smile is a must.
      about they eliminate based on physical appearance that i mentioned before, i cant help noticing they didnt pass guys who a little bit girly or guys who has skinny bodies. and also, my interviewer didnt pass a guy who was wearing a cardigan (even tho his english was like casciscus).

      and on my final 1o1 interview with Ms. Ada, i also noticed her a couple times looking at my hands as to check them if they were waving or whatsoever. even tho i made mistakes in speaking or choking a little bit, i got thru! may be it was right, that gesture is the key.

      i got thru n got the golden email. i wanna wish you good luck and well prepared for the next cx FA opening🙂

      regards,
      Tannia E. (induction 31)

    • IloveCX June 28, 2011 at 2:49 PM Reply

      Hi Jamal,

      I hope i could help u a bit with my advice,

      On the group discussion 1 is more about how you behave and cooperate with others in a different opinions,keep in your mind that u only giving your suggestion and knowledgements about the topics dont force yourself to be the winner in this discussion,the clue is by looking around your room and read the wallpaper as their motto.
      once ur group is done the interviewer will give u time to chill yourself up,this is the critical time for the interviewer to see how good u are in communicating with others in manner.

      Group Discussion 2
      this part is more about to know how good you are to deal with conflict with the customer bare in mind one of their motto “i’d love to listen rather than talk” eventhough your english is good,or you are an english teacher or lecture (based on the people next to me that time) you wont be passed if u make urself the dominant or the one coudnt stop givin opinion and makes ur opinion is the best one.

      on the final
      make urself as presentable as u could,make urself are capable for this job,learn about ur CV as every single details in your CV will be asked even your family background also been asked to me,and u gonna enter the next step of employment stages

      Medical examination
      if u are a smoker than grab heaps of Bear brand milk and soy milk,2days before grab a an of JIGUJA for detox yourself.

      waiting for ageto get the PLATINUM email from them will be frustating,chill urself with the friends on the same boat would be the best way as they gonna be ur family in HK once u get accepted.

      love to see you in HK………..^^

  231. jamalsyah June 30, 2011 at 8:01 PM Reply

    dear tania n IloveCX thank u very much for ur kind response.
    but tania ur english is more good than i am🙂. i think i should practice more infront of the mirror from now on.
    so the bottom line is, we don’t have to be stand out by speak out loud, be dominant/forcing, just rest n relax, rite?
    i pray for the best for both of u…hope next year we could meet n have the same schedule n be partner in the air…serving with the best service to passangers
    wish me luck next year friends

    warm regards,

    Just being curious here…those who have been accepted by CX…when are your departure dates from Jakarta to Hong Kong? Cheers!

  233. Youngest_Recruit July 22, 2011 at 10:57 PM Reply

    Mas Wahyu nya nongol lagi dong, Ci Canchan juga ke, atau Mbak Dhee (bukan Melinda Dee ya ) forum udah banyak pertanyaan nih, terutama mengenai keberangkatan, tolong empunya posting dihubungi dong informan-informan nya!

    Gosh!, you guys wrote in English as if it’s your mothertongue! (Top pisan euy!)

    1. Tahun ini berapa yang di rekrut? kayanya di Pre-Employment Briefing banyak, lebih dari 100. Masih ada tahap eleminasi selanjutnya kah?

    2. Kenapa Cathay rekrut banyak, bergelombang, dan Agustus mereka cari di Taiwan, apa karena pembelian armada baru atau gimana?

    3. Gimana dengan Induction trainingnya? apakah benar ada rumor , “failed in safety sure a ticket home” (atau itu bukan rumor tetapi realita 0.O) ?.

    4. Ijin kerja, apa saja hal-hal yang bisa membuat imigrasi HK menolak permohonan visa kerja kita? Apakah sebelumnya ada kejadian ditolak di menit akhir sebelum keberangkatan dikarenakan ijin kerja dan visa ditolak?

    5. Apakah ada kandidat yang tahun 2008 masih berstatus lulusan SMU, dan mungkin yang 2011 juga? Berpengaruhkah hal tersebut terhadap penempatan Induction?

    Jawaban dan arahan anda sekalian dan khususnya senior FA sangat berguna bagi kami semua yang masih spor jantung, deg-deg an, merinding disko, menanti Keberangkatan dan pelatihan di Hong Kong. Semoga senior yang membaca bisa membantu kita semua, maturnuwun, terima kasih!

    Thanks,

    -Greenflyer-

    Hi hi Greenflyer,

    cuma bisa bantu pertanyaan nomer 3 nih, hehehe. yang lainnya masih ga yakin daripada daripada kan salah ngasih info.

    CX memang strict sama safety, jadi 2 minggu pertama itu safety training. kalo failed, kita ga dikasih kesempatan buat lanjut ke service training, dan bener udah pasti balik ke indo.. *correct me if i wrote wrong details*

    hari ini Induction pertama berangkat and i really wish them best of luck for the training!! cant wait to see them in HK!

    Hope it helps a bit
    Regardss….

    yah…..harappanku hanya “smoga diterima”, walaupun masih kelas 1 SMK tapi sudah berharap banget……
    biasanya kalau kuliah dibidang pariwisata ambil jurusan apa yang cocok jadi pramugara?
    emang sih aku lihat seragam pramugara formal pakai dasi gitu, tapi aku pinginnya seragam pramugara yang kayak di maskapai Air Asia, gak terlalu formal tapi nampak rapi dan gagah.
    oh ya, badanku (*ga enak banget jelasinnya) *kurus*, tapi tingga dan berat badanku ideal… bingung nih…..
    wah kalau tes kesehatan agak ragu T.T😦

    Emma and Doni! Hi guys and Marintan!

    We’re hanging out right now at my place (Emma). Out of nowhere, we started talking about Forum Pramugari and Doni said I was so “Lebaaaaaaay” back when we were waiting for the news from CX. LOL he said I wrote a lot and I worried a lot too =.=” now he’s laughing at me😄 as he scrolled down on each and every comments I made. HAHAHAHA funny XP~

    We’ve been flying with Cathay Pacific for 6 months it’s been a wonderful journey for us🙂. We wish all of you who are still trying out there, don’t EVER give up like what Justin Bieber say, “NEVER SAY NEVER” … *pukes*. Thank you Marintan for such an inspiring blog❤

    Love, Love to Fly,
    Emma and Doni

    P.S. Lagi nunggu delivery K-EP-CEE dateng and we have a CAT now, named Pascal!!!
