Whether you went prepare or unprepare.....depending on how you present and answer interviewer's question on the spot...they might let u in knowing that you're 'Stable'. -- as in able to handle the job well in the eyes of the interviewer...

Blacklisting?. If the candidate is being blacklisted for attending so many times....HR would not inform them i guess.... :o

Geez.... :lol:

Yeap agree. they are particular about posture. There was a girl in my group who had lope-sided shoulders too, and the interviewer made her walk like 3 times, and also questioned her about her shoulders. I think they wan to also make sure that ur body is proportionate, no pear shaped body =Z That's what I think.

Woodstock...would you be trying again??? Anyone else trying again??? Maybe i will just try again..meanwhile i think i try to lose a bit of weight also.... :D But anyidea when would the next interview be around? Do we need to wait for another 6 months or what??

rurik0 wrote: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?

ya.. i think SIA need people badly.. I got booted out of the kebaya round AGAIN!!! hai~~ really dunno wats is e problem.. how i wish I could know my short-comings so that I won't keep repeating the same mistakes...

I arrived ard 11 and was in group 75. My group interviewers were very nice, keep smiling, really makes my nervousness goes away. Topic was wat was the place u wish to travel to the most if you get a chance to fly with SIA?? Passing rate 5/10.

Kebaya rounds: Same thing as others, all left XL sizes for top n bottom.. Have to keep asking ard for those who finished to take over their small-sized uniform.. most of the girls were very petite.. XL were tooo big..
I smile, walk straight, dun slouch... dunno wats wrong.. maybe i dun look good in kebaya??

Is it true u will get blacklisted if try too many times.. I thought more credit shld be given to those who kept trying.. they perserve right?? At least let us know wats e problem so that we can improve every time..

Anyway good luck for those who have made it to wct and mgt round!! may u gals fly soon~~~ :D

Hi gals..congrats to those that have got in!

I tried for the umpteen time yesterday and got booted out again at the first round..
Went home and cried my eyes out..sighz..
I felt so demoralised and sad...

Well, 2 yrs ago, i passed the mgmnet round but was told to do ' something bout my teeth' at the last round and get a review again before i can go for my medical checkup..
I didnt do it cos it it was a huge sum of money as quoted by the dentist..it was sth like cosmetic surgery..Dentist wrote a letter for me to fax it to HR..HR gave me a date for review but it felt on the day where I would be in thailand for hol..
Requested really politely for another review date and they agreed

When i came back, i called HR to set the time for the review and i was told the chance of my review had been forfeited since i didnt want to make changes to my teeth...

I wasnt told I couldnt apply for the nez 6 mths and i foolishly applied for the next interview..and ever since then, i had never made it past the 1st round..

sighz...Am so heartbroken and maybe i have really been blacklisted without me knowing...
