I'm 27 yo Singaporean who applied for online application on 15 March 2019. Also wondering is there any age limit - how long do you normally wait after application, to receive the interview invite email?

Thanks!!

Hi all,
Im 32 this year. I was wondering why i got in at my age too. Anyway i jus try and i got in. During my training, my groomer say i look young. That may be the reason. I had a few friends who joined at the age of 32 too. So good luck. Feel free to ask questions

No idea what the limits are but the fiancee got it when she was 29. For a woman entering SQ think that's kinda late... guess there are exceptions.

From what I understand, they are a lot more willing to hire older men than they are women because they assume that women would like to settle down and start families so they prefer to hire younger to maximize their investment in terms of training costs and equipment.

Because there are no age discrimination laws, they prefer to hire hot looking babes to keep their businessmen customers happy. They hire the older "daddies" to keep them in line.

You think I jest? Read through the threads in this forum. How do I look in the kebaya? Hair too long? Shoulders too round? Got a visible tatoo? Acne marks? Bzzzzzztttttt! We're sorry... it's all about looks. Or the saddest. My boobs are too big/small, I'm too fat/skinny to work for SQ. Do you think Scoot, the budget airline will take me?

The airlines threads are the longest threads on this board. Followed closely by the PS threads.
Life isn't about avoiding the bruises. It's about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it!

Truly unfortunate. Would be nice if SQ could focus on personality and attitude before looks.
