but how come is it that you can drive but you`re worried about your deficiancy? i mean, since you can drive, it doesn`t seem that it is too big an issue, like it`s not a major problem you`ve got. are you colour blind as in you can`t differentiate the colours or..? which type are you?

but anyways, you can email them your enquiries. they`ll know the best.

Hello!

As far as I know, they will. Cos one of my batchmates is colour blind. I think it should be ok. :)

The requirements for different activities and occupations often differ. An electrical engineer or cartographer would need to differentiate between different colours.

Hi all, my dad told me last nite that he heard of a blog or on STOMP that a poster was complaining that Tiger is underpaying the crew. Can anyone forward this piece to me? I am starting training on 12 Feb. Many thanks...

This is a common complaint and rather ridiculous; the whole ethos of budget carriers is to provide cheap fares which means the staff will not earn wages comparable with major airlines. I say ridiculous since most posters here are well or should be of how much they will have to pay in taxes and the CPF fund since they are in their native country.

The simple solution is; if you want to earn a wage you deem acceptable then prepare yourself for something suitable, most posters in this thread are still young enough.
