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?

My condolences  duck   Silly  Big grin

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.

Amen, ha!

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.

Good Luck

Good luck,

I just got a wonderful job, not at USair ...because of my aviation hobby,....my education, ....experience,....leadership,...

In conclusion, don;t be shy about your hobby, but don;t spend too much time on it. It is just the icing on the cake.

Good luck.

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.

The US staff in SJC is an absolutely great group. It would be a great team to work with!

Be yourself, no canned answers and most of all be honest and you can't go wrong.

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.

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."

IMO it might help if you can recall an instance when the S*** hit the fan and how you resolved it.

I suggest that they will ask.

I prefer not to say for now, but SFO has very high seniority, so its very hard to transfer to SFO, but you should be lucky getting an interview in the Bay Area at least for US

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

Cheers!
