There is a dispute between two passengers regarding the seats. How would
you handle it?
A flight attendant is a hostess, and the first responsibility of a hostess is to
ensure that there are no untoward happenings during the event. Disputes are
right on top of the list of undesired incidents during a flight. Therefore, the first
step that a flight attendant must take is to calm down the situation and create a

possible, bring the entire situation to the notice of a superior, which would
ensure a quick and logical solution to the problem.

orders every day. It was my responsibility to finish the orders and make sure
they all met quality and safety standards within a specific deadline. On

process. I was always able to learn quickly and carry out my job
responsibilities. Our company was known for making excellent processed
food products. In 1990, it received an award for being on of Canada's top
companies in the field. I feel I can use the same skills and hard work to do
well on this job too.

and I can always achieve my production quotas. For example one time I
was working at my station and I felt that I was wasting time by always

reorganized the station and my supervisor was really impressed as it
increased my quota.
