When a company states: 'Previous applicants need not apply' that is exactly what they mean. Now because of you one or more people will try again only to be humilated. Consider the outcome of your actions, you may find yourself rather unpopular. [-X

I see that there's a link "apply for the job".
is it necessary or we just have to go down for the interview dated,
along with the documents? need to bring resume or application letter?

thanks!

No need. The interview process is similar to that of SIA (it is the same company after all). So, all you need to do is fill in the application form and show up for the interview with all the necessary documents. :) SIA will be having a walk-in interview this Sunday at the Sheraton Towers Hotel. Are you planning to go??

Hi Plavt,

I would like to say something here.
During my interview with Silkair.
There's afew girls who was a previous applicants. And wasn't successful from the previous interview. BUT they came back again during my intake - NOW they started flying wit silkair.
[Example: Singaporegrrl and one of my batch girl].
Doesn't mean you're previously apply, that you could not give it a go again. PLEASE DO GO FOR THE INTERVIEW AGAIN TO SUCCEED LADIES.

I guess it would be better for REAL TIME applicants to comment then those whom hear, say and read? :-$

Thanks for post Queenie, that is strange since it contradicts their own statement - weird! :shock: However, as I remember Singaporegrrl was working at the airport for SilkAir when she submitted both her applications; under such circumstances rules can often be circumvented, a situation I have been in myself more than once.

Regarding the others - who knows? :???:

Sorry honey. but singaporegrrl worked for SATS [which is a totally different company] not Silkair when she was a ground staff. Plus, she have tried 4 times. And my batch girl, she works as a sales assistant before she got the job.
I believe that as long as you try, you will always succeed.

Life vest is provided.
15 mths bond with 5 years contract means: your contract is 5 years but you're bonded for 15 mths. During that 15 mths, u are allowed to resign only if u have money to pay the company.

swimming 1st then uniform.
piece of advice: don't wear bikini! try tankinis

Hi Miss toes..

I went for the latest water confidence test by SIA recently.

All the Girls had their make-up on. But it wasn't as much as on the 1st day.

Just put on light make-up. Don't go bare-faced.

Afterall, after the dip, everyone's at the same standard. :D

Bare FAced!! =)
