  7. Group Interview: Seemed to be the normal NASA exercise reported at other interviews. All candidates had a piece of paper with instructions and first 5 mins was taken up by reading your individual instructions. Total 30 mins for the exercise you had to come up with an ideal candidate (There were 8 to choose from). All candidates had differing instructions but not contradictory. There is no right answer but will ask how you came to that conclusion. Simulator Breifing & Assessment: We were... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. 1. Group discussion About picking up someone to send to airspace. Nothing to hard, just do it as a team. Don’t talk too much. Better to show them you are listening to others. 2. Sim assessment Be prepared to deal with adjusting speed, altitude and heading. If you can practice on any real sim, even it costs, it would be worth. all necessary infos will be informed during briefing. 3. Tech quiz So easy. Level of ppl. No need to worry at all. If you already have some banks, just... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Day 1. Met all applicants at the first floor of company office. We received the visitor permit and went up to waiting area at the second floor of building. A woman went over the all documents for each applicant and we went to a briefing room to get started group discussion. Mostly, discussion was straight forward, NASA project. Nothing special, just remember that do not talk too much and do not act like you are a leader. Next step was different up to every applicant by their schedule...

  10. Similar experience to others that have came before. Two day interview. First day consisted of group exercise, sim, and tech quiz. The group exercise seems to be the same NASA exercise Cathay have been running for years. My advice, don’t talk too much, but talk enough. The sim is straightforward, and all they are looking for is improvement. They do not tell you if you passed or not, but we can all tell if we’re in tolerance or not. The sim was an A330 sim. There were no... Continue reading this interview experience
