It was my first time and I was booted out. Heh.

Not sure what's gone wrong. Not sure what they are looking for too. One guy in my group was very very nervous and I didn't think that his introduction was impressive - not that mine is very impressive. What I mean is when he gave the introduction, he was like still thinking what to say. But yet, he was selected. I guess the first round is really based on luck. :)

There are resentments and disappointments. There are the minimum requirements. The minimum O's which is needed. This is the basic paper needed before we can advance to our diploma in local context.

In this century, anyone can have their diploma from any private schools and because of that, SIA needs to filter.

Even degree holder applicants for Cabin Crew Executive, they will need to have 2nd class honours. Job competitions are tough and it isn't just SIA. Any other corporates in the market expect the minimum isn't it?

What is that the company is looking for? Not bimbos definitely! Looks won't get you in even if you're Miss Singapore material.

You will need to have the personality, the smile, the confidence, the all important first impression and of course, your spoken english to get you past. And not forgetting, lady luck because your group might be very competitive with strong interviewees in your group.

So who gets in, who doesn't? Maybe it's time to do some homework. :)

This round is the time for SIA to have a good look at you in the kebaya if you can carry it off well.

You won't be blacklisted for this, and hardly anyone does. :)

Hey banz, i understand the kind of feeling u're facing. Imagine Q-ing for hours & unable to attend the interview. That's indeed demoralizing. I'm also a N' level & Private Diploma holder but surprisingly when they check on my application form, they tick on some important sections (height/qualifications etc..) & asked me to proceed on to the waiting room. I am prepared to be asked to make a u-turn & head home initially.. However, i m too tense up, i did not perform well at my 1st round thus i m out after 1st round..

How wasted huh? I didn't get to see u all... .when I called mischa...she said that you guys were at the lobby somewhere near the staircase..... and yeah..I was queuing somewhere around the staircase as well.... but din get to see u all.....

Well....where's our dear mischa? she seems missing after then....
Kinda miss her cheerful spirit here....

Yoohoo....mischa... where are you?? :?


Oh u gals are really there, when i m in the midst of Q-ing, especially when i reached to the Q near the stairs, i saw the group of gals sitting at the lobby next to it.. Somehow i could recognise mischa in the group from her avator she posted here, in my heart i'd still wondering, are all these gals from forum. Well, my guess is right. :)

mine is on the 4th too! I live in Serangoon North, maybe can share a cab with stupidangelss. Tinkerbelle you live in Tampines, should be quite near? :)

i chose the lastest date- 4th may cause i think i desperately need to lose weight (BMI way over 20) and to do something about the scars on my back. honestly.. i'm really worried. have never been comfortable wearing a swimsuit due to the above reasons.. hai :(


hey gals, sorry for the late reply. anw, will it be routing a long way if i take the cab from sembawang to serangoon north and then to tampines? i have a direct bus to tampines. and if i'm taking it in the morning, it takes about 30-35mins to reach tampines.

i'm not too sure. what do you gals think?

alright. i have been thinking of ways to conceal the mozzie-scars on my legs for the whole day. :( but if it's covered by the uniform, i hope they won't penalise too much on that.

im actually 158..i dnt kw y the lady said that i dnt met the requiment..feels like shit...i belive everyone in this forum feels the same as me too...4 thoese who did not get in i mean..

so did anyone get in?


Hey dear Banz...

I absolutely understand how u feel...i have gone thru tat same shit... before u can get 2 any round itself u get demoralized coz they measure u as below the limit. Same thing when i went in march, they measured me as 157 when i am 159 or 160... sooo embrassing when u juz go there take height measurement after submitting the application form they tell u dont meet the minimum requirements.

i myself am contemplating on whether i should go or not. i didnt go on sat so i have sun in mind but still like i m said in the contemplation state...

cheer up alrightz :) dont feel down




ya man tell me about it...it really feels like shit man so if you do go 4 the sunday 1 do let me kw wat was the out come k..


Hey gal...

i went for the SQ walk-in at 9.30am itself. Surprisingly (or maybe lady luck was next to me)... they didnt measure my height the lady looked at me and said ok move up to hand in ur application form.

But the lady who took my application form for ticking saw my height coz everything was typed except my height was written over in pen as i juz printed out the March application form which i had typed my info into so juz had 2 print it but had forgotten to amend my height. (i stated 159 today and in March i stated as 160) and then she juz saw me again head to toe and told me to proceed. (i was soooo happy and reliefed maybe it was juz my lucky day). So went to wait in the ballroom to watch the stupid video while waiting for discussion round. Discussion round was at about 11.30am, well i had to juz intro myself tatz all after that results were out and I DID NOT MAKE but well i was kinda of happy that i went for the 1st round and not be rejected like the first time in March due to my height.

So ya after tat i left for home was sooo sleepy and tired!!!

But well it was a better experience and many thanks to Tinkerbelle for giving me that little encouraging push to go for it...if i didnt go i would not have know the outcome i faced today :)

Moral of the day: KEEP TRYING

1st attempt: Rejected at the door itself due to height of 157
2nd attempt: Went for discussion round
3rd attempt: Hopefully (keeping my fingers crossed), Kebaya Round lolz

Anyway Congrats :D to all the girls who made it and my sympathy are with those who didnt make it but remember itz not the end of the world so letz all keep trying till we get there girls :D

If one can get in by just being really good looking and friendly, then SIA will have a lot more than 7000 crew. I've come to realise that looks don't really matter that much; the way crew project themselves physically and more critically verbally is much more important.

First impressions are crucial in interviews, esp those 10 in a group kind. It's pretty harsh to say an interviewer dislikes someone. It probably means he or she failed to make a good enough impression in the eyes of the interviewer.
