Re: Possibility of Offering after hr interview by ASTAR

it may take 3 months 3 months is a long time... I heard some cases on Glassdoor are fast, almost 1 to 4 weeks including interview, will get the results. I also need to make decision depending on if the offer is going to be guaranteed. Can anyone give me some suggestion to ask HR to get some more ce...

Re: RE: Re: ASTAR - Housing and child education allowance

No matter how it's sliced, it's fixed slots waiting to be filled. My experience through it has been that key holders are nigh untouchable, and high performing new comers will find the performance vs reward ratio unsatisfying whilst not terrible.

Re: ASTAR - Housing and child education allowance

Hi calugaruvaxile, It is really comforting to know to learn the experience of someone in the same shoes. I was unsure if it will be unrealistic if more housing allowance and kids education support is sought. I will ask to revise their offer and see if they can take the realities into account. you c...

Re: UK vote to leave the EU ['BREXIT'] - 23rd June

Leaving aside the half-truths your message is full of, what is really striking is how deeply you are impregnated with the communistic mentality. Unconditional wealth distribution regardless effort and work quality (except for the top party members, here the equity ends). With your alleged or sugges...

Re: Property market - your take

When this gets built... and it's a question of when, not if... there will definitely be plenty of bargain properties in Singapore. http://www.wallstreetdaily.com/2016/01/27/thailand-kra-canal-china-silk-road/ maybe my children will see the kra canal built, as i don't think i'll live long enough (i'...

Re: UK vote to leave the EU ['BREXIT'] - 23rd June

There are no quotas on EU citizen migration within the EU. Freedom of movement is a foundational right within the EU, and it will not be changing. If the U.K. wants quotas on EU citizens then it'll have to vote to leave the EU (and not join the EEA). In that event, if the U.K. institutes quotas, th...

Re: UK vote to leave the EU ['BREXIT'] - 23rd June

People would still like to have the national and cultural identity and not be forced to do something they are deeply against, like accepting thousands of economical refugees just because Merkel alone invited them in. i'm not sure the cultural identity is what pisses people off, but the money (or la...

Re: UK vote to leave the EU ['BREXIT'] - 23rd June

I think if you're not born into the wider Franco-German block you're always going to be treated like an outsider within the EU. The insiders club is a very small one; the rest are just fare-paying passengers receiving orders. err ... i think you should limit to the german-french aristocracy, don't ...

Re: Donald Trump

The United States has never had a female president, a president who is the spouse of a former president, or a president who has never previously had a government post. So either a Clinton or Trump win would be historic. However, it's always possible to identify something unique about the next presi...

Re: Donald Trump

...and the supposed 'world's beacon of democracy' the USA. Where having a relative who has previously been President seems to pre-entitle you to run yourself? The sense of pre-entitled politically anointed dynasties. Even Michelle Obama had to outright deny a month or two back that she herself migh...

Re: UK vote to leave the EU ['BREXIT'] - 23rd June

yeah, the press is full of very competent people forecasting UK's doom in case of brexit. the same competent people who predicted wealth and heaven for the citizens of eurozone, back in 2000. the same who made very good predictions, six month ago, on the oil price (they predicted anything from $10 t...

Re: UK vote to leave the EU ['BREXIT'] - 23rd June

I'm laughing reading some of the posts here, which leads me to the next big question. how many EU members does it take to fit a light bulb? if your question was about the members of the EU commission, i would say A HELL OF A LOT - first, they would need to assess the feasibility - then, they would ...
