Hey don't give up! Believe me, my face isn't that great either. But with the help of this thing called make-up, I was able to cover all my scars and aced through the interviews. I like to say, "MAGIC'S IN THE MAKE-UP".

Yep I'm under training now. I'm done with grooming and it was fun! I'm still having my foundation course and will be going for SEP soon. I'm not sure when the next recruitment will be held but my trainers always say the next batch will be coming in around December. Not sure though if it's the Singaporean batch or the foreign batch.

Hi sg gal, can you share with us what's the pay structure like for silkair? And also there's a 2 years bond right? In the bond, is there a clause that states that you cannot get married and get pregnant within the 2 years bond?

There'll be a recruitment in Dec, however the interview will be held overseas...not sure where though. The next local interview will be held next year. The contract for Silkair is 5 years but the bond is 15months after you start flying. You can get married anytime but you cannot get pregnant within first 3 years. I've posted the same ans sometime ago so if you have any other questions, please look back previous posts.

I guess as long as you're below 30 it's alright. One of my batchmate is 28.

Yes, all your allowances is given when you start operating, not during training. We are bonded for 15 months, not including the duration of training.

The only information I can provide is all allowances vary with different flights.
