hi people!! i just got back from the interview.. didnt manage to pass the skin check.. really cant figure out why.. i mean,im not boastful,just that i dont have any major problems about my skin..

my group got 4 girls went into kebaya round.. was told to go for lunch before my kebaya round.. then again.. wait!! the beautician asked me was it my first time here n i said 'yes,for this round'.. the passing rate was 6/10 for this..

before my group i saw a group of guys which passing rate was real high.. 8 of them got in.. my mind was like 'holy me'!! haha well,let's wait for the next interview then.. :D

I was rather early today..I reach like abt 9am...and the queue is almost till the front door at level 1 lobby....

The 1st round of interview...The question asked was: If you were to choose a fruit of the day which would you choose and why...given a timing of less than 1 min. 3 out of 10 got in.

The 2nd round: Kebaya test..... My goodness...the kebaya are almost all in XL sizes..... but it seems tat they are actually of diff siezes just tat all tag as XL.... given 5 mins to change into them....got to walk down the "aisle" like machiam catwalk. to and fro....show the interviewer your hands and she ask a few questions like your previous work experience and why u left your previous job....Then proceed to the skin check test...where 2 very BIG n BRIGHT spotlights are used to shine directly on your face. 7 were in out of abt 12-16 people....

The 3rd round: 1-1 interview. The interviewer ask a few questions like, intro yourself, previous work exp, current work, why you wanna be cabin crew, why you left your previous job ( This is where i answered something wrongly).....and then read a passage...something like english oral test.....then if you get a slip of paper means you pass this round..i didn't get it....... :(

Ya i am a bit upset la..but seriously at least i know what went wrong.....i was stupid enough to tell the interviewer tat i quite my previous job because the career advancement pace is slow and they do not allow upgrading when i get my degree...tat's y i left...then she look at me with those...huh??? look...then she tell me....do you know as a cabin crew...to work up to become a senior may take you up to 5 yrs too???...by then i know gonez liao......

hi guys,

i arrived 2day at 9am and there were oredi alot of people there. i was queueing for around 30mins with my friend and finally got into the waiting room. Upon entering the room we put our stuff down and rushed to the toilet. Upon returning, our group was not there anymore!! T_T we were panicking like hell and went outside to see if they were there. Luckily we managed to find our group and joined them. Sadly, news was out tat there were 2 missing gals and our interviewers knew abt it too! I felt sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo terrible as i thought my friend and i was already blacklisted.... T______T.......

Round One
Pretty hassled coz of the 'go to toilet' situation.
Topic: Can you tell us a little more about yourself and why you wan to join SIA?
There was one gal who spoke quite well but didn't get thru. Maybe coz she went a little off track... =S

Pass: 3/10 (T__T)

Round Two
I couldn't find a kebaya skirt that fits and was like changing skirt non stop. I took so long that i was the last and the person actually had to hurry me. Therefore i took a skirt that seemed to be L or XL and folded it up at the waist! Lol! I was thinking: damn!!!

Pass: 3/10 (Same 3 people as round 1)

Round Three
Had to wait around 15-20mins for this round and i daresay this 15 mins seemed like an 1hr. And a nerve wreaking hr !!! when i went in....i saw the lady who interviewed the previous time. However, this time, mine was a different lady. Was pretty nervous but i managed to control my 'lah's this time round!!

Passed.

I'm now left with WCT and management that falls on the same day... 17th... MAN!!! T_____T so fast. Does anyone know if u find out u pass on the same day for WCT and management or do you have to wait for a phone call?
