I am quite surprised because as a Singaporean, I'm sure you've heard of racial harmony many many times and of course there is a mix of different races. SQ and MI does too. LCC stands for Low Cost Carrier.

So sorry. May i know what short conversation are we suppose to say? Did they give us a topic or subject to discuss among ourselves or must say it out loud and clear so that everyone can hear what you are saying?

By the way, i heard that TigerAir training is just one month only. Is it really true? Yup totally agree with you. Just treat it as a experience for us.

Though we have no other experience. But once we have gain the experience from other airline. That will noy be shouldnt a problem for us if we want to apply for other airlines. Am i right? But im now 23 already. I know that its really no harm for trying it.

But still also have to depend my luck also right to see whether will i be able to get selected and will they call me. How do you know that about 40 will make it? That mean when the 1st round interview finish. We will surely able to get in 2nd round interview or have to see our performance.

But if like say, for the 3rd round of trying uniform, what if some of them cant fit it in. Then how? Really sure that all of us are able to fit in the uniform?

now a working in a TigerAir as a Cabin Crew. Dont mind can tell us more about it and share it with us. How long have you join? Cuz i heard you have to pay your own expense & own meal. Somemore they also dont provide you luggage too. Roughly how much is the pay which you bring home?

yes you are right... they do not recruit male cabin crew. [ONLY females onboard]


No secrets! yes, no meal, pay own expenses. But almost every job in singapore is the same. For me, tiger airways is an experience for me. Right now, i am going thru the one month training at STC. Yes, they don't provide luggage [SIA don't provide luggage].

Roughly, it depends how hard you work. The more flight you do the more you get.

THEY ARE VERY STRICT WITH PUNCUALITY!!! Female candidates have to be at least 1.58cm [SHORTER then that will be sent home immediately]. Normally they are looking for younger girls, but just give it a try. You might never know!!! I think this time only 40 will make it.

Interview rounds are really simple:

1st round -
Introduction
Passage reading
Short conversation

2nd round -
Just sit and listen

3rd round -
trying of uniform
CONFIRM!!!

During first round, you got to be well spoken and should NOT be over confident or too quiet. Speak well when it comes to your turn.
If you have any more doubts, do let me know! gladly to answer your questions.


Did tried other airlines but no CHANCE. Tiger airways is good enough to gain experience. YES IT'S ONE MONTH TRAINING. [need to stress alot of things to your brains before the test] which is like 2 weeks after your training starts.

Doesn't mean tiger airways is a budget airline and you will learn less then SIA. [YOU ARE TOTALLY WRONG, that's what I thought in the first place]. You will be learning alot about the airplane safety procedures. Well, most people think that stewardess are just a high-class waitress on air [totally WRONG]. You have to be totally prepare for the training and the work environment [working with all FEMALES is tough].

Tiger airways are very strict regarding height. I have seen girls who is shorter then 1.58cm was to send home immediately. After that training you fail, you can be re test after that if you still fails. GOOD BYE

Quennie-me, since Tiger Airways is under SIA, do they go through the same training???

And do you plan to work for SilkAir or SIA after a few years???

Will they prefer you??

YES! SEP procedures are all the same for most airlines. but my training is shorter because tiger have small planes [A320].

AND NO! i do not wish or plan to work for SilkAir or SIA after a few years. I was thinking about Emirates, Qatar or Qantas [well, of course for Qantas I have to be PR in aussie.] Shouldn't be a problem, my sister is already a PR there ;)

Why Qantas?

(I believe I am not the only one who will say this airline has a bad image in terms of service)

Qantas is okay in terms of service. My friend said it is better than SIA.

SIA is fake smile.

Whatever your friend says... I travelled with both airlines and I can tell you there is definitely no comparison.

Qantas better than SIA? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Qantas's service was fast and convinient..
Their in-flight entertainment is good..

Hmmm, Cathay Pacific, Emirates, SIA, Malaysia Airlines and sometimes Qantas are voted the best airline every year.

So yor friend has his head up his/her arse as well as you then. Qantas is well known for having shocking service - and I'm an Aussie saying this.

Donno's words of wisdom again:
Qantas [well, of course for Qantas I have to be PR in aussie.] Shouldn't be a problem, my sister is already a PR there


Seriously, mate - get your head read - just because your sister is a PR in Oz doesn't mean it's an easy in for you. Friggin heck, do you ever say anything sensible?
