Kinda have that lil bit of disappointment...


My friend's who pretty, 1.64m tall & has a perfect weight but still did not get thru though she can swim well. She's extremely disappointed. Maybe she was penalised for wearing a bikini.
No wonder everyone is saying that standard has dropped & commented that SIA girls in the past were much prettier than what they have now. Especially those who joined in the 80s' and 90s'.
Any idea when is next recruitment exercise?
I thot of trying myself but then again if my good friend can't be selected by SIA, doubt I can cos i'm definitely not as pretty as her.



Hi, sorry to hear abt your fren's plight.. as from the previous posts, SIA is quite stringent abt the requirements and she should be dressed in a proper swimwear.. Somehow agreed wid what u said e standards of e FA had dropped over e years.. Perhaps during those years, it is a stepping stone for SIA to recruit pretty gals??? Times had changed, maybe they think dat LOOKS are secondary now(as long as u are pleasant-looking!!!). Actually, wat is important is your attitude and personality towards your duties as a FA.. bUt sometimes, lady luck also plays a part in all the rounds.. No offense to your good fren... :D

AS for the next recruitment, from other posts, it wil be probably in Oct... your fren should try again.. NEVER SAY DIE!!! AS for u, should go n try as well, IF u are able to get in 2nd round, at LEAST u have tried!!! Dun regret when u are older!!! :cool:

Cheers... :P


I would definitely try next monthcos dont want to regret later in life. Will also advise my friend to wear a proper swimwear too next month.
Are you presently a stewardess yourself? If you are, I've posted a new topic on Quality of SIA steward. Maybe you can give me your advice on that topic. Thanks


Sorry, I am not a FA yet.. BUt some of my frens are.. Dats what they told me some of e tales revolving cabin crew... I will also try to for the Oct recruitment cuz i missed e previous one!

Regards


Could you share with me what tales revolving cabin crew your friends had told you in this forum? Can also email me at trolley2364@yahoo.com.sg if you prefer in private. Thanks


Actually, is all those same old tales that goes on and on in this forum, all those backstabbing, bitching around, gossiping etc... One is even planning to resign soon... Maybe u can go throogh some of the previous posts in thsi forum.. Cheers :cool:

Hi guys. Is SIA very particular that applicants should have a good set of teeth? That it should be aligned, etc? I know other airlines have this stringent requirement. I wonder if it does too with SQ...

Hi there,

i think e teeth needs to be straight and definitely not over crowded... i guess as long as it is not too obvious and ugly, they will accept bah. :D

Oh, I see. But they don't really have it check like make you smile wide, have your mouth wide open? They're really not strict with this as with complexion?

I dun think so.. yes, they are particulaur abt whether u have a nice set of teeth but not too extent of smiling to check them.. they are NOT dentists.. haha.. More particular abt complexion.. But sometimes those who managed to get selected to be a FA, their complexions are actually not dat flawless.. Some might have pimples, marks on their faces... Maybe make-up helps in hiding all those ugly stuff.. Really wonder y these ppl are selected though? :roll:

hey congratsssssss cutiechar, you must be relieved now..

I got in too, but not officially yet. ive passed my final interview and my tea party, hopefully everything goes right with my medical check up on tuesday, if they approve it then i'll officially get the job.

true, smileeee always.. it helps really.

btw i have birhtmark on my face too, on my chin, but i think its how you cover that up, how you cover your negatives. if you have a lot of pimples then do facial 2 weeks before and put a lot of make up to cover your flaws.

good luck for y'all. =)

o yea.. btw these are the questions they asked me on the final interview:
1. what do you know about cabin crew job
2. what would be the greatest obstacle if you get the job
3. how do you handle passangers
4. tell me about yourself and your family
5. what is your job and how do i like it and stuff
6. how serious you are to be a cabin crew.
7. why do you want to be a cabin crew
8. i forget the rest but it depends on what answers you have given them

basically to really know if you really know what you are getting yourself into, to know that you are really interested in the job and really trying to find out about the job, dont forget to read things about customer service.

my friends got asked:
1. how do you handle Man as passangers
2. what is your weakness (try to give them a negative answer about yourself that wouldnt backfire at you and be responsible for it, you have to know what to answer if they ask you about your weakness like say maybe how do you handle your weakness and maybe how it would affect the job)
those stuff.. and do your homework, read about SIA they will ask that to some people, see how much you know the company, it reflects how much you want the job.

from 400 people that got shortlisted, 58 people got to the final interview and they divided 58 people to 2 days, 29 person each, the first day 17 applicants got accepted from final interview and i heard they eliminate one person on the tea party because she was too quite and didnt interact that much. on the 2nd day (my day) 18 got through, and one of us (she was on my batch) got sent home because she doesnt have a full degree which is a bachelor degree, her degree is D3 so she has to extend another 1 year to complete her bachelor degree. the thing is they write it university graduate on the requirements, she did graduate from university.

itsss toooo baddd you know, going all the way through to getting the job and you only have to do the med check up but you cant get it because you dont have a full degree. i feel soooo sorry for her =(
the thing is if she got shorlisted means that singapore airlines have reviewed her resume thats why she got called, shouldnt have called her in the first place if she doesnt fit the requirements, you know what i mean. and i think they should have appologized to her because its not her fault. she felt terrible when i msgd her, she really wanted the job. well we all do. maybe they dont really check the resumes at fisrt, they just check the pictures???

hope this infos help you guys..!!!
