I once applied to work at Southwest Airlines.
They made all of the applicants do an oral report in front of the crack class on some fake subject. The two hiring personnel set at the back and watched as each new prospective flight attendant got up and gave their presentation.
Except they weren’t paying attention to the person giving the presentation. They’re watching the class. They were trying to see how well the audience paid attention to the person presenting.
This way they would know who would pay attention to their gifts on board the airplane.
My buddy over at Comal Tubes in Texas uses the same hiring techniques, he says it helps to make sure that customer is always right attitude is in place!
Lesson Pay attention!
