if you really wanna try out for silkair, don`t wait for people to tell you when are their recruitment drives!

check out their career website regularly and they will usually advertise in straits times on the saturday a week before the actual date. the career website can be accessed from their website.

That's called using your common sense, a vital component to being a cabin crew.

Thanks!
Here's another question: How much does an average Silkair Stewardess earn a month? :? :?

I think it would be a good idea if you didn't ask this sort of question, all too often people regard such information as personal and don't take too kindly to being asked. I know Queenie doesn't like it so do yourself a favour and as the airline themselves, not meaning any malice to yourself.

i`m sorry if i sound offending here but.. i hate it when people just sit and expect people to give them answers or open a thread and ask something that have been discussed so many times. most answers can be found in the threads you know.

if you`ve read the silkair thread, one of the crew mentioned that the pay is around 2 to 2.5k. it depends though.

i`m sorry if i sound harsh, but if you really want something, then jolly well do your own preparations and don`t be lazy to read through the threads!

You are quite right, interviewers can some times tell who people are by their actions and I know they watch this forum and others along with the blogs of some of their staff.

One thing no interviewer likes is somebody who turns up for a job and doesn't show an inkling of interest. Time and time again this has been mentioned here and I think implied at the walk-interviews. Study the company's website, visit the airport, take a flight, use the search engines; don't expect a 'free-lunch'. The competiton is nearly always severe, prospective applicants must remember that.

yeahh.. i`ve seen a report somewhere some time ago on SIA recruitments and the thing all interviewers said turns them off the most is the lack of interest in the airline. like when they ask about press releases or corporate information. worse still, some pretend that they know when in actual fact they know nuts!

You're sure preparing well for your potential job, let's say in like 3 years? 4 years? :lol:

I do apologise for offending the others on this thread. My question wasn't meant to cause a stir. I read through the thread before I posted the question as I wanted to determine if there was any discrepencies in the answers that may come forth. If yes, a big pinch of salt. If no, then a smaller pinch. Of course I realise that a job as a flight attendant on any airline is a coveted one and that competition to be recruited is tough. So, these forums are useful in that it helps the otherwise less knowledgeable get a clue or two or maybe three. That's why people browse the posts on forums. To share infomation. In good spirit. Truth be told, the theme of monetary compensation has been covered on many threads on the forum. People ask because there is a genuine interest in being paid appropriately for services rendered. After all, the service industry is about being able to serve (with a smile). As such, if a question like this one causes such a stir, I do wonder why then people continue to choose to work in this industry where clients/customers will constantly ask questions and be unreasonably demanding. If not for the monetary compensation, then what? Will you continue to work in a job that will not compensate you in the manner that you deem is fair? Job satisfaction is key in being a productive worker. And being paid fairly is one of the biggest factors in determining this. I do not claim to be an idealist. I'm more of a realist. There're bills to be paid. A nestegg to think of. For someone in my position, thinking only of the sheer enjoyment one can derive from travel and serving others onboard is less than responsible. There're people at home who could benefit from my monetary help. So once again, I do apologise for asking a question that is offensive.

Money isn't taboo topic. Many will disagree. But I feel that if the topic of money isn't touched on, one may find himself in a pickle a little further down the road. You'd want to know exactly what you're buying into before you take the plunge.
