Whatever you do, JUST BE YOURSELF. Don't walk in there and try to be somebody you aren't, or act like you're better than everybody else. Also, interviewers, don't really care about your aviation hobby. They want to know how much experience you have, and if its good
Also know that from the moment you walk through those doors, there may be nobody around, but THEY ARE WATCHING YOU!!! Even on the flight there, you are being watched. So just be yourself, and be polite.
Best of luck to you Luciano.. let us know how it goes... BTW -- What is the position for?

Good luck man, and as the previous guy said, be yourself. Enjoy it and when they ask you to tell them something about yourself that they don't already know, lean forward, light up and tell them about YOU.
Well congrats - your almost there, like everyone else said be yourself. That's all it really comes down too. As for the other comment about the interviewer probably not caring about the aviation hobby. Mine sure was interested, so if you get the right opportunity - slip it in there. Your interview is right around the 1 year anniversary of mine BTW.

I could have been interviewing you for CSA, but I am not at SJC. Dress professionally. the interview should be a STAR type. Situations, Tasks, and Result. provide an example of a situation for the question asked, and also mention what you did about the situation (task) and then what was the result of your actions.

When you get the job, act like a Southwest Customer Service Agent would and make it a good time for everybody. I have ALWAYS been interested in the Gate Agent part of the job. It sounds like a lot of fun to me. Just have a great time. I have learned alot from my Teen Leadership class about Job Interviews. On Tuesday, I have a job interview at Abecrombie & Fitch.

Quoting SWISSER (Reply 9): Sorry for being a dumbass,
but what is a CSA?
CSA=Customer Service Agent
Some airlines (and other businesses) refer to them as CSRs (Customer Service Representatives). Northwest Orient used to call them "Transportation Agents." I still like the term "Passenger Service Agent."
Then you need to be (or act) extremely friendly and patient and be willing to deal with lots of impatient passengers. Don't forget to be polite! Those are the things they will be looking out for in the interview.

Here Here: Cheers to you!
I'm sure this will be an experience you will never forget. When I contacted US Airways for my project, the CRO (customer relations officer) was so helpful! My supreme airline loyalty is with US. Proud to fly the flag and I say it's great to Fly and US!
Just one tip, I think it impresses them if you know a little bit about the company and the Star Alliance. It;s nice to see an employee that knows something about the airline. It was very ironic to see two DL employees wear "keep Delta my Delta" buttons and they didn't even know what the campaign was for lol
