If you want to become Air Asia Cabin Crew, you will need to ace the interview process first! In this post, I’m going to tell you everything you need to know about the Air Asia Cabin Crew interview. It is important that you do everything possible to make sure you can successfully complete the interview process.

You can apply to become Air Asia Cabin Crew on their careers website careers.airasia.com. If your application is chosen, you will then be invited to attend an interview day.

Height and document check

The first thing that will happen at the Air Asia assessment day is a number of checks. This helps the airline eliminate candidates who don’t fit the essential criteria before they complete the day.

You will need to complete a height check to ensure you reach the height requirement of 157cm for females and 168cm for males. If you do not meet this height requirement, you will be turned away straight away and won’t be able to take part in the interview.

Air Asia will also check your documents. It is important that you bring all of the required documents with you. For example, you will need to bring education certificates to prove that you reach the requirements. You will need to bring the following with you: application form, copy of your higher education certificate, copy go your CV, copy of your IC, 1x passport sized photo and 1x full body sized photo.

All of your documents will be checked and then you will be given a number and asked to wait.

Self introduction

After your documents have been checked, you will be asked to do a catwalk for the recruiters. This will involve you walking up and down in front of them, while they assess how elegant and professional your walk.

The recruiters will then check your skin for any scars or tattoos that are visible on your face, neck, hands and legs. It is important that you don’t have any visible when wearing the Air Asia Cabin Crew uniform.

You will then be asked to give a simple introduction about yourself. During this, it’s important that you have open, positive body language and present yourself confidently.

After this stage, you will be told whether you have been successful or not. If you are, you’ll move on to the next stage.

English test

You will then need to complete a 15 minute English test. This is designed to test your comprehension and fluency of English. You will be given a number of different questions that will test your language, grammar, and understanding of English. If you pass the English test, you will be given a job application form to complete.

Group activities

You will then be divided into different groups. Each group will be given an activity to complete as a team. You will normally be asked to do some sort of performance. The aim of this stage is to see how well you work as a team. Therefore, it is important that you cooperate with your group and allow every member of the team to play a part in the process. You should show initiative but not be too bossy or overpowering, as you are being assessed on how well you work as a team player and not a leader.

Final interview

The final interview is 2 to 1, this means you will have 2 recruiters asking you questions. You will be asked a number of questions about your experience, CV, skills and why you want to be Cabin Crew. For the interview it is essential that you have researched the airline, as candidates who know the airline and its values specifically will stand out. It’s important that you include both interviewers when answering your questions, not just the person who asked the question. You should also appear confident, professional and enthusiastic.
