Paige, This is life. When you are still young and useful for the company, they will treat you good but when you become the liability, they will throw you one side. Especially in service line. Even though this is what the company treats the staffs, it will not stop people to work with them. But not a...

Crew life is never easy. This job need more endurance and patient level compare to other jobs in term of colleague and passenger. This is a front end job which you are the face of the airline so it is very normal when the seniors have very high expectation on the junior as well as the company. In fa...

For SIA walk-in interview, I would say it depends on your luck. Those people that got the job are solely based on luck. I would say it is more than 50%. My friend went for the interview for the first time and she got in but at the end she felt that this is not the job she is looking for. As soon as ...

I believe that blood is ticker than water. If this thing is not apply to you, at least you have your love one. BF or GF? When you are totally alone at unfamiliar places and environments. You will feel helpless. I agree that there is no perfect job in this world but if we can find something better, w...

You are right 2ndtimelucky. This job is terrible and they are profesional actor/actress with their fake smile all the time. That is why my friend always cry in the toilet or in the hotel. She cant wait the bond for the bond to end. :( Pity her!!! She is a lovely and cheerful girl but now what happen...

I agree that as CC, they need to have essential personality not just to look pretty. This is one of the marketing strategies for this airline to get more market share. But I really disagree with this marketing strategy since indirectly they are practicing discrimination to old worker. It does not me...

Hi all, I am just sharing with all of you what i know from others. No bad intentions. My two cents worth: It is the same like other job that they need to spend money on you. We are the liabilities to the company at the moment we join them. If the job is really good, people will stay willingly they w...

Hi all, Dont worry about the training date. As long as you are ok, SIA will definitelly call you to inform you regarding your training start date. I know that sometimes Mary will scold those people that call her for this information but it would be better you give her a call to check with her. One o...
