Look at what’s included in the 5 Steps to Smash Your Assessment Day Course
Avoid Common Traps
Believe it or not, your assessment day begins BEFORE you are expecting it to. Come and learn all the tricks these sneaky airlines use to assess you before the day even begins! Because, believe it or not, sometimes your assessment day can be over before it begins if they don’t like what they’re seeing! They will be watching you and our course will show you how to avoid this common trap!
Tips before you start
Ok, so you’re waiting for your assessment day to begin. What should you do? Should you chat to others? What should you chat about? Or, should you sit quietly? And, who will be observing whilst all of this is going on? We tell you who is taking note of your timekeeping, what you should do with your mobile phone and why smoking is such a no-no near an assessment day! Get ahead of the crowd
The Company Information Session
So, now it’s on to the actual assessment day. Many airlines start with a company information session. We’ll tell you why they do this and why taking notes on your phone is NEVER a good idea! We'll also give you some great tips on how to remember key facts from this very important introductory session that pretty much every airline uses during their recruitment process
Deliver a brilliant self-introduction
Assessment days often include a personal introduction. You’ll get to watch a couple of action. One good- yay, well done Olivia. And one not so good- still struggling to understand why Christopher felt the need to mention his dog?? More importantly, we will explain why Olivia’s introduction was so good and Christopher’s was somewhat lacking!
Understand how the group activities work
You'll get to see a group activity taking place. This one is a sales pitch and, as ever, some are better than others! You learn exactly what the recruiters are looking for, what they don't want to see and how to stand out without appearing too pushy. You'll also learn techniques that will help you stay calm, appear confident (even if you don't feel it) and influence others
Official Airline Maths and Numeracy Tests
Almost every airline will use a maths or numeracy test and so you know exactly what you are doing we'll give you the chance to take an official airline maths test. We'll then analyse your results and you'll then get the opportunity to improve on any weak areas that you have. Practice makes perfect (you'll get plenty practice) and we'll make you s maths whizz in no time!
Dealing with the Role of Cabin Crew Questions
Airlines will ALWAYS want to know what you know about the role of cabin crew and will ask you questions to make sure you do have a good understanding such as “What do you know about the role of cabin crew?”
Lastly, you’ll get the chance to take part in a psychometric test. Airlines use these to help determine whether you have the relevant characteristics to be suitable cabin crew. Luckily for you, we know what these characteristics are and we are willing to share them with you!
This course lets you see behind the scenes of an assessment day. Yes, really! Whilst all of the candidates are off having a break, you get to see what the recruiters are up to! You’ll get to see EXACTLY what they think of every single candidate and you get to hear the fate that awaits them.
Next up, its English tests and again, the pass mark is 90%! We’ll give you a test and if you pass, well done you! If not, there is a whole session to help improve your English language skills including plurals, homophones, commas and apostrophes. We’ll have you passing your English test in no time!
There are many different types of questions recruiters will ask you at this stage, and we cover them all! And, you get to see a number of candidates during their final interview. As ever, some are good and some are not so good. What you get to see is what happens if you give a weak answer- these recruiters will pounce! That’s why you should always use the SAR technique to answer
First up, you get to see behavioral questions. How you behaved in the past is a predictor of how you’ll behave if you get the job. So airlines LOVE these types of questions. Watch how the candidates cope with them… Next up, we show you a range of communication questions like “Tell us about a time your communication skills made a difference”. Eek, what should you answer to that? We’ll show you
It’s final interview time! And, don’t be in any doubt, airlines will really put you under a LOT of pressure at this stage. If you get to this stage, airlines really do like the look of you, so they use this part of the day to make sure they are EXACTLY what they are looking for. They will have been watching you all day now and taking notes. They will have a good idea of where your strengths and weaknesses lie and they will now use this final interview to make that all-important decision.
Deal with Initiative & Adversity Questions
Next up are initiative and adversity questions such as “when have you made a bad decision”, “I’m not convinced about your suitability, convice me”, “Have you stretched the truth to gain a favorable outcome?” or “what makes you angry or impatient? Don’t worry- we’ll show you how to answer intimidating questions like these- in a way that will put a smile on the recruiter’s face!
Deal With Teamwork Questions
We also cover a range of questions on teamwork- which you will ALWAYS be asked at a cabin crew interview. These include questions such as “ Tell me about a time you had to work as part of a team”, “Have you ever struggled to fit in?” or “Have you ever had to work with a challenging colleague?”
Deal with Customer Focus Questions
Then we’ll move on to customer focus questions such as “tell us about a time that you had to deal with an upset customer…. Solved a customer problem… had to say no to a customer”. Woah, these are difficult questions aren’t they? No worries, as we’ll show you how to impress!
And then there are the tricky questions put in there to trip you up- “How would your enemies describe you”, “What makes you stand out from the crowd?”, “Rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10” or “What is your greatest weakness?” – OMG, how are you supposed to answer those??? Worry not, as we will show you!
There is a LOT that can be thrown at you in this final interview so you want to be PREPARED! This course can help you do this, by showing you the typical questions you may be asked (as well as some atypical ones!). More importantly, however, we can show you some really great answers to these questions.

Still unsure? Then let us help
You’ve done so well to get to this stage and you should feel very proud of yourself.
Unfortunately though, you still have a long way to go before you get those cabin crew wings! Airlines like what they have seen of you so far and want to find out lots more about you during the assessment day.
This is your chance to shine. But it will be so much easier to shine if you know exactly what these airlines are looking for.
These assessment days have been very well-thought through and are set-up specifically to put you under pressure and make sure you have the requisite skills they are looking for.
Problem is, they are looking for a LOT of skills!
They need to know you are friendly and personable. They are looking for people who can take charge during an emergency situation. But you also need to be able to sell!
To do this you need good maths skills. As the international language of aviation is English, you need to be fluent in this as well!
They need to see that you have good conflict management skills and can remain calm under pressure. All of this, whilst being impeccable well-groomed!
Woah, it’s a big ask and you can be sure your assessment day will be set-up to ensure each and every one of these skills will be tested.
But we’ve got your back! We know exactly what these airlines are looking for and we know the ways they will test you.
We’ve put everything we have learned into this course to make sure you are successful at your assessment day.
Even better, many of the sessions include videos showing you what happens at an assessment day, so you get to watch it taking place, alongside us explaining why airlines use these techniques AND what they want to see from you. What could be better?
Remember, Kenny and I have both been teaching for over 20 years. We really do know our stuff and we would love to share all of our recruitment knowledge with you.
What can I say? This course is AMAZING! I had made it to two final interviews and was so proud of myself until my rejection emails arrived! It’s like Pauline says, it’s all for nothing if you don’t get you job offer and you have to be successful at EVERY stage of the process. Looking back, I think I was pretty complacent about my final interview as I thought it was just pretty much a formality and they just wanted a quick chat with me, then I was good-to-go! How wrong was I? The last final interview I was at lasted more than an hour and I got a grilling! After completing the course, I could see why because my answers simply weren’t detailed enough. So, I practiced, practiced and then practiced some more! So glad I did, as I had practiced for every single question that came up in my final interview. And guess what? Thanks to the SAR technique, there was not one single follow-up question and I actually quite enjoyed my final interview- in a weird kind of way! Anyway, now out in Dubai, flying with Emirates and loving every minute! This course was a complete game-changer for me and hopefully it will be for you too.
OMG- I found watching some of these videos painful as they were making exactly the same mistakes I had made in the past! Cringe! Thankfully, this course helped me realise the mistakes I was making and I made sure I didn’t make them in my last assessment day. I certainly didn’t as I am now cabin crew with Qatar and enjoying my new life out here in Doha. There are so many different questions that can be thrown at you in your final interview and you have to be prepared for them all. After completing this course, I felt so well-prepared. If being cabin crew really is your dream, then you should use this course- it’s so helpful.
Brilliant course. I’d failed the last two assessment days I’d attended and was struggling to understand why as airlines don’t give you any feedback at all. After completing this course, I completely understood why. My behavior at the group stage was all wrong! I had tried to take-over at the group stage as I had been told that the best thing to do was to show the airline that you were very assertive and could take control of any situation. Turns out this was BAD advice and I now understand why! Guess what? I used this course, learned loads and was successful at my last British Airways assessment day! I now have my wings and am loving my new job. If I hadn’t bought this course I totally believe that I would still be attending assessment days dominating group activities trying to be “assertive” and failing miserably in my mission to become cabin crew! So, thanks Pauline and Kenny for your wonderful course!
For me, my single biggest struggle was getting through the maths tests. Man, they were difficult! I’d always struggled with maths at school and couldn’t believe maths tests were now standing between me and my dream of becoming cabin crew! What I loved about the course was how much help there was for improving your maths. You got the chance to take part in an airline maths test in which I scored an embarrassing 37%! The next session basically taught you all of the maths that you needed to become cabin crew. I found this far more interesting than any maths I had ever done in school as all of the examples were so relevant to the role of cabin crew- like loads of examples came from in-flight magazines- or from things I am interested in, like shoes and lipsticks! Now, when I see a 20% offer on at Beauty Bay, straightaway I can work out how much I am saving lol! Anyway, after completing this session- and the following session which shows you how to calculate the answers in the first maths test, I sat the second maths test. And scored 91%!!!! Couldn’t believe it! I am now cabin crew for EasyJet and know it would never have happened without this course. So, my advice? Go for it!
