Hi Chai Ching

No I'm not a crew but I want to be a part of the family. I've tried various airlines and am still trying. I'll not be going this weekend as I'll be out of town.

Regards

First of all, thanks for your encouragement! Really appreciate that so much. You are right. Totally agree with what you post here. If the more we are scare, the more we will lose and no confidence at all. Maybe thats the aprt which i lack of courage and confidence. At first, im still hesitating whether going to give it a try and see how.

Feeling no confidence of myself. So i give up the idea and intending not to go at all. But many of them encourage me and ask me to just give it a try and see how. Cuz you never try, you didnt know whether you will be shortlisted or not? Itr true of what my friends and colleagues say to me. So i have finally decided and make up my mind to go. No harm trying it out at all.

How about you? Are you going either on thes days? Or you are just giving advice here. Or are you one of the crews?

Been following the posts here for a while. Don't worry about what other people say. Just go for the interview and listen to what the recruiters have to say, then make a decision from there. If you like what you see and you are shortlisted, then it's still not too late to make a decision. Basically just go and try. Even if you do not get shortlisted, take it as a learning experience. Should you decide to try for the next recruitment, you will be better prepared.

It's always better to hear from the horse's mouth and make an informed decision. This is not to say that other people's views are not valid. They are but only you can make the decision. What you want to make the decision on depends on you. Weigh the pros and cons from there then only worry about it and decide.

Best of luck! :)

Sorry. I want to tell you that im not intending to go. So i also wont be on leave on fri. But im still hesitating whether want to go or not. Although i have slim down a bit. But my tummy still can quite obvious. Silkair's uniform is quite tight or loose one? I also dont know. I ask my sister opinion. Should i go and attend it on fri?

Sae say you better not go. Cuz my sis and her friend say, Silkair is no good. But i say, at least gain some experience and treat it as a stepping stone from Silkair. Once i gain experience, then i join another better airline.


Such a pity u nt going liao.. I'd still be going on 9 dec lor. Actually i feel u shd still go for a try. U never know the result till u try rite??? as for the uniform part.. mayb u can take a look at the outfit

Questions!

Postby qiutinger » Mon, 11 Dec 2006 10:44 pm

I notice Sinagporegurl has been very kind and helpful. Could you and all else answer some questions i have?

1) What do they ask during the management round?
2) When does the medical checkup round comes?
3) Do they check eye sight during the uniform fitting round which is the 2nd round, the same day as the water confidence.
4) Does an O level grad earns lower than a Dip grad in Silkair?
5) If the minor scars on my hands are concelable with concealer, is that okay for me to put on concealer that day for the skin check?

TIA to all!! ^.^

1. There is no specific answer to this question. You will first be required to introduce yourself to the management. The usual; name, age, hobbies(optional), current job and why you want to be FSS. Then they will ask various questions depending on various backgrounds like how you manage your customer(if from customer service line), or how will you be able to adapt to a new environment, or how can you manage time if you've reached motherhood, etc. Truly, they can ask anything under the sun. You'll just have to remain calm and answer them diligently.

2. Medical check-up will be done when you pass through all rounds of interview. Probably around 2 weeks after the management interview.

3. Eye-sight is under medical.

4. No. All crew have the same pay regardless of education background.

5. I don't think it is necessary. I have 5 or 6 small scars on my arm, above the wrist area but I got through. Concealer won't be much of a help anyway. So don't bother.

I wish all who will be going for second day interview the best of luck! May we see each other up in the sky.

Anyone has been called in for an interview with Silkair apart from their Walk Ins? Do they still do that?

Hi,

Also been trying but so far no luck. Looking back & analysing at the passed interviews that I went, I realised that i'm lack of confident and knowledge of the know-how to ace the interview. So I'm going for the Cabin Crew Preparatory Workshop call FLY HIGH next mth. Check out their website for more info www.ascentcc.com Any one interested to go?

OK, my own personal opinion; be very wary of these organizations I very much doubt if a one day course will make much difference to your chances.
