Not sure if they changed any stages of the interview but what I went through was:

Day 1
-Collect and fill up form from counter, after it's done, pass it back to the interview counter girls and they will tell you which group you're in.
-Group by group, height will be taken and need to do a "reach" test whereby you have to touch a tape to see how far you can reach. After that wait for group interview.
-During group interview, interviewers (had 2 interviewers in the room when I went) asked each one of us to stand up and give a brief introduction about ourself, hobbies, current job, aspirations etc. They may ask further questions to see how you respond. All will wait outside after this is done and the interviewers have some discussion among themselves then they will proceed out to call the girls who made it to the next round.
-Next round is 1-1 interview where the interviewer will want to know more in-depth about you. Like why you want to join, are you able to commit to irregular hours, family commitments etc. If pass, next will be uniform fitting round.
-Uniform fitting: They check for scars on your forearms, legs, neck, face, palm etc. Silkair's uniform is about knee length so they have to check your legs as well. Do a short walk to see if you walk properly as well as posture. They also asked me to smile to see see if it is presentable. If all's well, the lady will pass a form that would invite you to the management interview. Mine was immediately on the coming Monday.

Management Interview Day

-Was held at silkair office in terminal 2, about 40+ girls were selected from that day's interview.
-Bring along management interview letter, register with the interviewers and they will pass you a name sticker to stick on your top.
-Management round is conducted by almost the same group of interviewers on Day 1, plus a few managers and also some directors from higher management. I think I saw 5-6 people in the interview panel.
-Move to the centre of the room and do self-introduction to the interviewers. The interviewers will ask questions as well, based on what you have introduced, to see how you respond, also a mini "get to know you better" just so to know who they are going to hire and work with.
-After everyone introduced themselves, all will leave the room and this the time the interviewers will discuss among themselves.
-About 15 minutes later, all will gather back in the room for a Q&A. Can ask about salary, allowances etc. Drinks and snacks provided. Then is end of interview, wait for their email within the week to know if successful through medical.
-I received the email the next day and was told to go for the medical the following day. Went for medical and waited about 1 week and then received email to say all is successful and wait for letter of offer and go down to sign contract. Training commence in 1-2 month's time.

Thanks so much for the info!

That's means only 50-50 chance as only about 20-22 people for a class. May I know how long ago was your interview? The successful candidates to final wasn't alot from what I saw for my recent interview.

The interview stages infront are the same, i think mmgt round will be the same too. Final coming thurs! Anxious and worried as the interviewer asked me this at the end : if you're not selected on finals, are you ok? I was like stunned :cry: if its you, I bet your feelings will be like me too.

I reached during lunch time, The hall was rather empty with candidates waiting to form a group of 10. After finished every stages for the day, only saw 5 including me made it for 1-1.

Hey don't worry, the interviewer asked me that during the 1-1 interview and during the management round, one of the director interviewers asked too! I told them that I would be more than happy to be able to get the offer but if it doesn't happen, I would go back to what I was doing and try again the next time. All the best to you!!! Just be yourself as they want to see personality and honesty!
