Hi shrapnel,

Which intake are you from, and are you from Malaysia? How long did SIA takes to process your EP? Do they inform you once your EP is approved or they yet get back to you? I'm very nervous :???: waiting for an answer from them. I'm with the 15 Oct intake.

Cheers

SIA Cabin Crew.....advice from a SIA Veteran of 35 years.

Postby boh tong » Sun, 12 Nov 2006 3:17 pm

Flight stewardess/steward job is a excellent stepping stone for young ppl like you all. Not only that, it is a good job that pays well ( about S$3,500 per month) and you stop in exciting cities like New York, London,Amsterdam etc....I never regret flying with SIA. I had learnt a lot about life and people. Sure, once a while you will get "pain" in the ### type of paxs and colleagues, like anywhere else.
Go for it girls and boys, try as many times even you are initially unsuccessful because SIA is in desperate need of cabin crew..SIA has to recruit at least 1,000 cabin crew in the next 1 years to meet its expansion plan.
Good Luck Guys! ( btw my url is http://bohtong.blogspot.com please visit me )

Exactly.

Even if that were so, look at the numbers who apply each year! Unlike Emirates, they do not have a block period during which previous applicants may not apply after a failed application, or like Silkair which usually specifies that previous applicants need not apply again. That means the same people who keep trying will be among the say, 15000 collective at each walk-in? Plus, if it's true that "sincerity will move" then repeat applicants who may finally be accepted will mean that there will just be another batch of people who have to try again the next round.
