Malaysia Airlines Management Trainee/New Graduate Hire
I was a Management Trainee for one of the best 5Star Airlines in the world. And by writing this post, I only intend to give some insights, or share what I have gone through to finally be accepted as a part of Malaysian Hospitality.I shall however not, disclose sensitive information nor would I disclose the range of salary and the fringe benefits given to successful candidates (you can check this with the HR).
During my batch, there were 3 separate assessment that we need to go through.
1- The Assessment test (Day 1)
Multiple tests were conducted that took us the entire day (0900 hrs – 1630hrs). If my memory serves me well, there were Personality test, Comprehension Test, Analytical Test and IQ Test. If and only if you manage to pass (or achieve a certain amount of marks stipulated by the management), you will get a call to the next round. The gap between the first round of tests and the second round vary and depends solely on the management’s discretion.
2- 1st Interview
Candidates will be asked to answer a case study and basically candidates would be asked to further explain their answers in front of the panel. The Interview was very basic but bear in mind that a thorough selection was done during the first test and not many actually managed to get to this second round.
hints: learn about the company, but please don’t sound like as if you memorized a great deal from their website.
3- The Final Interview
This final round is quite similar to the 2nd stage. Candidates were given a case study and would be asked to explain about it during the conversation with the panels. Not more than half get into the final round. If you succeed this stage, then congratulations, you can now wait for their medical check up call and anticipate the pride and honor of being a part of Malaysian Hospitality.
hints: be yourself.
I have heard from previous batches of Management Trainees on different sets of interview stages that were conducted during their time. Do take note that the selection process may change subject to the management’s consent.
Once you have been absorbed as a management trainee, you will undergo a probation of 1 year and subject to your excellent performance, you will be confirmed as an Executive. Management trainees can be posted at Subang (MAS Complex), KLIA (support), KLIA (Main Terminal), etc. Your posting will be decided by HR, depending on your future respective departments. I will not disclose any job scope as you can inquire on this matter during the interview.
As far as I know, openings for the position are advertised in Jobstreet and Graduan. I am not aware of any other medium. The qualifications that are needed to apply for this position; –

* Have 0-3 years working experience
* Possess at least Second Upper degree or CGPA 3.0
