I would prefer a guy with high flying career.. instead of someone heating meals, clearing trays & cleaning toilets in the aircraft, thou this is what i am doing now.

Some guys join for awhile just to see the world & they will leave after their bond..

I flew with some stewards who reali turn me off with their thinkings..

was chatting with this steward, & we were talking abt staying long in this line..

the answer he gave me was 'of course, which job outside pay u as much as SIA do'... 'easy job, go home no need stress'

oh my god.. such a naive guy.. i detest guys with no ambition..

There's nothing glarmous about this job..

Most gals/guys want to join the airline mainly becasue they want to see what's out of Singapore.. other than that, it's just another job..

SIA keep hiring people cos the turnover rates are high..

Many people left once their bond are over.. Thou u may earn a slightly higher salary than your peers in other industry at the moment, but in terms of yearend bonus we will lose out.. Your peers are going to climb up the corporate ladder...


I think you kinda have the wrong mentality... What happens if a person's ambition is to serve... Different ppl have different ambitions and perspectives about what is a 'High FLying Career'... I agree its just another job.. but isn't any other job also ' just another job'... Anyway that my two cents worth... Hope i haven't offended anybody... Coz i think everyone is entitled to their own opinion...

cheerios


I agree. This job has paid for my education and given my family a comfortable life, for which I am very grateful. SIA is a great company and if you find joy in the service industry, then being a cabin crew can be a rewarding career. SIA is what it is today because of the commitment and dedication of many of its long-serving staff.

The mentality that i have is my own opinion i had all this while...

it's just personal opinion that i feel stewards are nothing great, & their jobs scope simiar to mine are nothing worth to be proud as well..

But definitely being stewards is not equal to high flying career.. There are people whose dream is to serve, but still.. i prefer guys who dreams 'is not to serve' onboard.. :oops:



Are you proud of your job??Since you say that their job scope is similar,and there's nothing to be proud of..Why did you choose this job anyway?Toygirl said that maybe one of the reasons are they sucked in school..But I don't think you do..Ummm,IMO,I think that having a job that you are happy with and a job which you can do your best in is enough for me..I don't need a high flying career to be happy.No offence yeah..

:D

I am relating to the story told by the thread starter who mentioned that the steward was proud cos he was a crew..

That's y i saying cos of the job scope a crew is doing, the steward has no reason to show off or whatever...

I love my job of course that's y i have staying on for more than 5 years... but it's a personal opinion that i prefer my bf not to be a steward for many reason..

Certainly one has the right to choose.. I am not discriminating anyone here cos i myself is a crew but just that it's a personal preference... But i believe when the right guy comes along your way, it doesnt really matter if he's a steward anymore.. But.. still a preference...

so dun take it so serious & sound until i am discriminating stewards.. :oops:

I agree totally... The important facts is how you carry your profession. If one thinks that he/she has the greatest job & they are above anybody around them, he/she is really making a fool out of themselves.

Have u ever met people those status above average able to afford condo and big cars are mostly arrogant, if they don't get what they want they just complaint and complaint? and those who are truely succesful millionare behave low-profile n humble? well these are the people should be truely respected!

In Thailand it is like a wow job - If you're one - it's like wow - your daughter must be really wow wow

In Singapore and Malaysia - Its similar except some girls who are basically freak up bitches end up destroying the names of others.

Standards are dropping for sure if you look around at a carrier - No brainer - Mass recruitment ends up with lesser quality = Lower service standards.

In a party - I do see some of these girls who basically act as though they are mighty - They only become docile mice when another senior ranking crew actually comes and shuts them up.

You just need to realise these bitches are just a sorry pathetic state - Just walk away and don't waste a cent on them!

It's a waitress job - with a bit of everything :) - Remember - Not only waitressing - It's A BIT OF EVERYTHING

Why do I say that - Some people really pride themselves on being crew - for them its like elitest - Reason: Some sucked in school and they find this job like I'm so special (aka Kylie Minogue - I should be so lucky song)

There are nice crew around :) I shut the bitches up with - Hey, u crew, clean this up for me? or "Is it true you cleaned up the shit so glam being junior crew huh?" Always shuts them up!


haha...
