Are you ready for part 2 ???? So much has happened and the world of aviation is so different now, But here goes …. lets head back to January 2020
The room contained around 40 people and like I said most were in the same uniform except for 5 of us. They talked about the company and shared about the position and expectations. They then broke us up into groups and handed us a meter stick….. BIZARRE RIGHT?! They then told us that we had to work together by using only the tips of our fingers and lift the ruler off the ground and up to shoulder height. Following 2 rules everyone in the group had to keep their fingers on the ruler at all times and we couldn’t drop it if we did we had to start again. I am pretty sure this exercise was to see how we communicated and worked as a team but it was definitely a little crazy with roughly 12 sets of hands trying to work though it but we did it in-fact we were the first group to complete the task. YAY US!! Next we had to grab a topic from a jar and be able to talk about that topic for 1 min. Well those who know me know that I had no problem with that ….. my topic was SHOES.. So I shared that I had to say goodbye to so many shoes after E was born and then that spiel went on and on. Others received topics like who would you want to have lunch with dead or alive , what superpowers would you want, if you were on a desert island what would you do….. The crazy part people had a tough time talking on these subjects that blew my mind but then I had to remember some of us talk with purpose not just about random things. After all that they had us wait outside until it was our time for our one on one interviews. There were 5 people conducting the 1 on 1 interviews. 2 from HR and 3 from inflight services. I got exactly who I wanted. We had a lovely chat and clicked and I left that room floating… I did it !!!
A week later i received a phone call from the west coast inflight supervisor offering me a position with FLAIR Air …. upon successfully completing the training!!!!!
