Focus On: STAR Format
One of the most popular styles of interview question you will be challenged with during a flight attendant interview are questions requiring you to answer using the STAR Format.
STAR format questions are the ones where they ask you tell them a story. For example “Tell me about a time you had a disagreement with a manager. How did you handle it and what was the result?”Although STAR Format questions are not then only type of interview question you will encounter, it is a very important part of the interview.What is the STAR method?Even though it sounds like the STAR method would involve answering questions in a yoga pose, this is not the case. The STAR method is a common tool used by most human resources to interview candidates and is not exclusive to the airline industry. The theory behind the STAR interview method is that if an interviewer can evaluate a candidate’s past behavior, then they can accurately predict future behavior.
STAR is an acronym which stands for Situation, Task, Action, and Result. To successfully answer an interview question using the STAR method, all you really have to do is tell a story. First, think of a story with a favorable outcome and then format it using the STAR method.
