if you're working for a SIA subsidiary such as silkair, SATS, etc, you have to resign before you can apply for SIA FSS i think. that's what i heard. somebody who is working for SATS passanger services walked in for SIA FSS yesterday, got through to kebaya round, but couldn't continue cos she's working for SATS.. you might wanna ask your superior? but it shouldn't be problem if you've resigned.

wow, that's taking a big risk. :o

Passing rate: well for the first 2 rounds, it;s unpredictable, but normally about 120 gals make it to the water confidence and from there 40 - 50 girls will make it to the management. From there they will pick 20 girls or less to form one batch. If there are forming 2 batches, then about 40 gals will make it through:) But highly unlikely.

I don't think so; if I remember correctly both Queenie-me and Singaporegrrl were working for SATS when they applied with one of them having applied on four seperate occasions. However, times change so best ask one of them.

i'm making that statement in conclusion to what happened yesterday.. that's what that girl's been told by the hr.. but i'm advising blue to ask her superior, that would be most accurate!

anyways blue, why don't you apply for internal transfer? or have you not completed 3 years?

OK but you never mentioned the HR in the post to which I was referring. However it does seem strange that you should have to go as far as resigning before you can apply to SIA. Perhaps that is not surprising in regard to SilkAir but why on earth apply such criteria to SATS?

i don't know, i don't work for the HR! :lol: but the HR lady did mentioned that it applies to all SIA subsidiaries and she quoted silkair and SATS.

but well, i'm not saying i'm right or anything.. she should ask her superior to get the most accurate information. :)
