5 Tips for the Cabin Crew Final Interview
The Final Interview is the last step of the Cabin Crew Assessment Day. It usually consists of questions to provide the interviewers with the correct information to help them with the hiring decision - these can range from your experiences in school to your job or skills.
Some sample cabin crew final interview questions:
- Why do you want to become a cabin crew?
- What do you know about our company?
- Tell me about your strengths and weaknesses.
- How are you planning to compensate for your lack of experience?
- Tell me about a time when you solved a conflict.
- Tell me about a time you dealt with a colleague who was not doing his share of the work.
- Why should we hire you?
Preparing for this interview is crucial to your success. If you are surprised, you may reveal something you didn't want to share just because you didn't have any examples. This could jeopardize your chances of getting the job.

Here are some other important aspects to consider:
1. Body Language
The little signals we unconsciously send to the people we interact with show precisely what we feel at that particular time. We can decode somebody's body language better than their words, so it will pay off to be aware of it.
- Sit upright, but not too stiff in your chair - this shows you are comfortable and confident.
- Lean slightly forward - this shows you are interested and involved.
- Very slightly tilt your head to one side - this shows you are friendly and open.
- Rest your hands loosely clasped in your lap or on the table.
- Do not touch your face - touching your nose or lips can indicate that you are lying.
- Do not elevate your hands above the neck - this shows you are nervous and annoyed.
- Do not cross your arms across your chest - this shows a defensive attitude.
- Cross your feet at the ankles or place both your feet on the floor - this shows a professional and confident look.
- Control your leg movement - shaking or bouncing your leg shows nervousness and is distracting.
- Do not rest your leg on the other knee - this is perceived as arrogance.
Tone of voice
- Breathe and pause before answering the questions.
- Vary your tone and pitch.
- Smile and nod at appropriate times, but don't overdo it.
- Don't laugh alone - laughing with the interviewer is more appropriate.
- Always use words to answer questions. Don't reply just with nods and head shakes.
- Get plenty of sleep the night before the interview. Yawning in front of the interviewer suggests boredom.
- Don't consume alcohol the night before; avoid spicy or garlic-rich food, as these may taint your breath.
2. Questions and Answers Session
You have to listen to the question and provide a concise answer. Always stick to the question you were asked. Don't stray from the discussion and move to irrelevant and unrelated topics.
You can say you can do something or give examples of things you have done. Prepare some examples and answer the questions in specifics, not in generalities. You can say, "Yes, I have done that before. Here is an example of a time I did that ____. Did this answer your question?"
Dancing around a tricky interview question is not the best approach. If you don't have a skill, tell the interviewer, and don't try to cover it up by giving examples that are not relevant. Even if you don't have that particular skill, you might have some related skills, and you can discuss them further if the interviewer wants to hear more. You can say, "No, I never had that experience; however, I encountered a situation when I was faced with ___ [similar issue]. Would you like me to expand on this subject?"
3. Your turn to ask questions
When the interviewer asks you if you have any questions for them, don't be silent. You show enthusiasm and interest in the company and the recruitment process by asking relevant questions. Prepare in an advance couple of topics or ask about any matters that may have resulted from the information exchanged during the interview.
4. What's the next step
Unless it has been described before the cabin crew final interview, you need to know what happens next in the hiring process. Try to establish the time frame for a hiring decision and who you should contact to follow up on the status of your application. Should you call or email? Clarifying this information helps you know what is happening and shows the interviewer that you are professional and organized.
5. Thank the interviewer
Sincerely thank the interviewer for the time spent with you. Make eye contact when doing this and shake their hand if they initiate it.
Being successful at your cabin crew final interview is all about confidence. Confidence comes from being prepared. You are on your way to success. Trust that!
