Having flown out of LAX with Air Canada over 150 times, this position typically requires complete distain for any passenger who is not one of the "celebrities" they see virtually every day.
BTW, I have been very satisfied with AC customer service personel troughout the rest of their network.

I would study AC. Be prepared to answer the following interview questions:

1) Tell me about yourself.
2) What do you consider your most significant accomplishment.
3) What do you like and dislike about your current position.
4) Why do you believe you are qualified for this position. Why should I hire you.

Most HR folks are looking for character traits. Never, never degrade a current or previous employer. To do so is character assassination.

The U.S. Department of Labor recommends interviewees walk into the interview well organized with a black or brown leather or leather like material organizer/portfolio. Your organizer should contain extra copies of your resume, at least three references, a letter of recommendation if one is available. The DOL recommends you dress one up for the interview.

On the Frontier Airlines website under the "Work with Us" there are interview recommendations.

The HR folks wan't you to ask questions about thier company. Don't be affraid to write notes but asked to do so. Don't be affraid to take questions into the interview. And lastly "Ask For The Job" On the same day you interview you should mail/postmark a thank you letter to the HR person who interviewed you. This builds character. Practice interview questions with a freind or family memeber.

It isn't going to help. They are employing you in the US.

I would imagine YVR or YYZ. I can't see them training someone in the States, unless they are hiring alot of CSA in LAX?

Do all of the above and you will be golden! Also I can not stress enough to dress Business and not business casual. Wear a suit, one should always dress like they want a job above the one there are interviewing for. Dress serious to be taken serious.

Thank You very much for your help and advice. Question? Do you think that as a pre-requisite I need to know French?. It their websites it says CSA should know french.
