and if we do not abide by this rule, will we be penalise?


Well, the reason the HR personnel gave was just that the management would not like to see the same applicant being interviewed so often. That's because they are very senior management ppl...hence i think they would rather give u 6 months and then see the improvements.

I've read from the other threads that the interviewer would kinda reject the applicant at the 2nd round if the 6 months ban is not fulfilled. Applicant mite get thru the 1st round...but unlikely at the 1-1 interview.

When the recruiters get their bonus, they will feel more motivated to hire stewards. This is because more stewards hired means more bonus.

And as a result, when there is more bonus, it attracts more people wanting to become stewards which results in the recruiters being able to recruit more stewards and thus getting a higher bonus both for themselves as well as the new stewards being hired.

When the bonus is low, the recruiters will not hire that many stewards due to not many people wanting to become stewards at that particular point of time. This will indirectly affect their bonus and result in a lower bonus both for them as well as the existing stewards. However, this will lead to a temporary shortage of stewards and thus gives a chance for the recruiters to recruite more stewards which will then increase their bonus indirectly. When their bonus is increased, the recruiters will be more motivated to hire more stewards which will result in an increase in their bonus.


I'm sorry, may I ask where did you get your information from? You sound very confident in your answer. But it is baseless and inaccurate. Recruiters are often staff from HR and cabin crew department. They are not required to hire more people to get bonuses. The bonus is decided upon the performance of the company. Pls do get your facts right.

Wah............ Still very confusing... hahaha!! :P


Here's what he means:

1) Recruiters are motivated through bonuses.

2) This motivation is channelled into hiring more stewards (and very possibly, stewardesses).

3) The size of your bonus and the number of stewards hired are directly corelated i.e. the more hired, the fatter your bonus.

4) Even when the bonus is low, there is greater opportunity to hired more stewards, thus driving the bonus up - again.

5) Rinse and repeat.

Understand? Neither do I.

If hire more stewards can increase recruiters' bonus, they will take everyone who attend the interview... :roll:

i think its jus a guideline to not deprive others of a chance...?
there is a definite reason why one is not chosen during the final rd...somewhere must be wrong...

so they would prefer one to wait for abt 6 mths later..and let others have a chance bah? =p

i heard this year's bonus is a good one. :wink:
Not really. Anyway, don't forget that the bonus is a function of your basic pay, so it's not going to add up to much.
Going to have to take this back. This year's bonus is pretty fat. Not sure how it's applied throughout the company though, with the different unions and agreements.

Sorry...but i was a bit blur regarding the bonus and recruitment for stewards. Any relation??? :)


yes because most of the crew choose to resign after getting their bonuses. if they resign before, they lose out, so wait till after getting their bonus, then its byebye!

i'm a bit confused by Plavt's theory though. :?
