Are you ready to discover the truth about the secret elimination process? Do you know that airlines use hidden surveillance and undercover officers to eliminate 90% of unsuspecting candidates as early as possible? and do you know that you are up against a strict set of hidden criterion and secret discriminations? These are just a few of the tactics that airlines use to make sneaky elimination choices during the selection process. By understanding the process from the inside, you can avoid being slaughtered by the underhand tactics, and you can tip the balance of power in your favour, so that you become the one who is doing the screening, not the airline. Within this guide, you will not find pages of information informing you about the duties, history and roster structures, and neither will you find average advice that will have you looking and sounding like everyone else.
This book is raw and will take you behind the scenes to reveal secrets that airlines don't want you to know. The information is universal, revealing how candidates are screened and hired all across the world, from the largest international carriers to the smallest national operators. The information is timeless, so you will not find outdated or irrelevant advice, and, most importantly, it is uncensored. For the first time, you be shown how to avoid the common traps and pitfalls, and the true reasons why no airline will ever tell you why you were unsuccessful in your pursuit. Whether you are a seasoned applicant who is finding yourself frustrated at another unsuccessful attempt or are a new candidate looking forward to your first interview, the insider secrets and step by step guidance will give you a huge lead over the competition.

"Refreshing and insightful"
As a guy, I feel at a disadvantage when attending cabin crew interviews, so I felt some help and preparation would help me overcome this. The book did not disappoint. Although discriminations do still occur, and there are some very questionable practices which go on behind the scenes, I am satisfied that I am as prepared as I could ever be. I enjoyed the overall flow of the book and the narration was spot on.
I particularly enjoyed the inside scoop. It was very revealing and insightful.
I found the section related to managing your nerves was a little long winded as I don't suffer from this myself. I would probably put this at the end of the book as a bonus, rather than in the middle. I also notice that the author has been incorrectly associated with the book.
"Pass the interview"
On my second listening now. I listen on the bus to work and feel motivated by the time I arrive.
I like the section about the undercover interviewers because it gives a lot of advise on how to approach them. I also like the sample answers and now understand how to construct my own more concisely.
I learn much better by listening and don't have the time to read much.
Both. Ah, just kidding. I did laugh in parts, especially at the blunders, bloopers section.
I haven't read the print version. I think some sections like the tips for different genders and strategies for nerves would be better in the book so you can skip it easy if not relevant. I also think the book would be better for revision purposes.
It is easier to listen on the go than to read. I spend a lot of time travelling and don't have time to read much so this format is ideal
I enjoyed listening and have learnt a lot
Insightful, shocking and helpful
I really liked the narrators voice. The tone is very professional and reminded me very much of how a recruitment officer does sound. Psychologically I think this will help when back in an interview environment.
I have been trying for Emirates cabin crew for 3 and a bit years, not that I am counting or anything, and I now realise that I have been making some very daft mistakes without realising it. In particular, I believe I have been the victim of several eliminations due to my willingness to be open with too much personal information. I never gave it a second thought until now and am having a cringe moment now when I think back to what I have said in previous discussions. I also found it very interesting to discover that the airlines use hidden tests to coax out a candidates true personality. I never try to be anything I am not, but I do now realise that there is a difference between being honest and being clever with what you reveal. I hope my next open day will be a positive experience.
"Best use of my credit yet"
It's really good
I have been a member of Audible for a little over a year now and this is by far the best credit I have spent so far. I read the very first edition of Caitlyn Rogers book and managed to get a job with SwissAir. When I saw this new version was out on audio, I jumped at the chance because I still dream of working with Virgin Atlantic. Although I missed the last recruitment drive, I will use this book to prepare for the next once, which I hope will be in 6 months or so. In terms of content, this book is quite a lot different to the first edition. I has been expanded and I'm not disappointed with my purchase. I'd say that the content has been at least doubled. I always struggled with getting involved in discussions when everyone was talking over one another, but now feel more prepared to get involved. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is looking to get a job in this field, even if you have read Ms Rogers previous books as this is a great supplement.
