Hi you mentioned water-confi test, what is it actually? Swimming with float or...? Hear from you soon.

water confi-test is actually like a swimming test..u'll be given a life vest dun worry.u'll have to swim across and that's it!!!
it doesnt matter if u do not acquire the knowledge of swimming..the panel is looking on whether u are confident in water or vise versa..

For those who went for the interview on Sunday yesterday, how did it go?

I was there and I would say the turnout was not as huge as the previous one on 26-27 August. May I also add that this time around, it seems like there were tighter quality control of candidate-flow to subsequent rounds. Nevertheless, I managed to get through the first round of self-introduction, but stopped short of meeting the interviewers more personally in round 3. I was in group 21 and met a few kind ladies who helped me with the uniform fitting when it was somewhat a frenzy because of the lack of suitable sizes for every candidate and a very short time allocated to us to search, exchange and fit on well onto the sarong kebayas. Though I would have loved to proceed further, I'd say that it was a worthwhile experience to see how the SIA Management judges their applicants on whichever elusive basis that are frequently debated by the public (beauty, intellect, height, etc.).

Wow so how stringent were the interviewers this time round? I havent been to any of the interviews, am thinking of trying it out for the first interview next year after my studies. So I'm kindof getting the jitters now already haha...

from what i heard about other candidates, the turnout was actually quite bad.i have not come accross any candidates that pass through all three rounds yets, wonder if there are any here.

i went for the interview at abt 8.30am, there were like already 50 candidates theres. i am the first girl in group 6. after watching some videos we were then brought o a room with 2 female interviewers. my group was in the panel 3. we were told do do a self introduction and why we want to be a cabin crew. but sadly all the 10 of us failed the interview, none of us make through to the 2nd round. i thought that the interviewer were actually quite strict coz a gal in my grp was actually quite pretty, had a nice smile and even mention that she could speak jap during the introduction. me and my friend were quite shocked that even she did not make it. when having through the interview session, the interviews were actually smiling and keep nodding their head. think all of us were quite sad abt the outcome. as for my frens in the other grp, some made trough the first session but fail the 2nd or 3rd session. i wonder how many caandidates they actually selected for the swimming test this time??

Hello everyone,

I'm new to this forum and I hope that someone would be able to help me, giving me some useful information on the interview rounds.

I did try the last walk-in, however, I did not make it through to round 2.

I've quite a number of cabin crew friends who have encouraged me to join and a couple of my model friends have also tried a couple of times before they made it through for training.

The models mentioned that I should not mention that I was modeling before?

I also gave a short introduction on myself, currently doing events management. And mentioned that when I was modeling, I also did alot of hosting events for BMW and mini cooper. My gf said I shouldn't have spoken in a business-like manner. But I thought that would mean confidence? And would it be I am too tall? (1.78m)

However, I do like to try the next interview (not able to attend 12th November interview due to work.). But hope that someone could give me some advice thoroughly.

I would really appreciate and grateful for that.

Thank you all!

-Maddette
