:shock: Blame yourself... Don't blame other people for disappointing you. I've seen people at the age of 18 work as Cabin Crew.


I dont think you should be disappointed. In fact, you should be happy and thankful that you are still young and have more opportunity for the walk-in in future. If you're positive n determined to try. Im sure 1 day you could be one.:)

Ive yet to turn 18 this december but im already waiting for my training. :wink:

i have checked other airlines already...jetstar paid $1700...tiger $1300...sia $3500...so far sia is the highest paid...a fresh grad degree student can't earn that high...sia is worth for trying with walk in interviews...compare other airlines to my current job...i may else work in my current job now and work up to $2000 something

hi downtown,

so ur purpose for being a cabin crew is becos of the high pay? if thats the case, u sld try for emirates and etihad, i think they pay more than SIA.

but again, i would advise go for a job that u really love and enjoy doing, not just becos of the pay. cos being a cabin crew is not an easy job as what people percieve it to be. :)

good luck! =)

Etihad, Emirates & Qatar recently had their recruitment... but these airlines require thier crews to be based in their country not Singapore... they usuall have a recruitment every 3 to 4 months?? think so... keke... :P

JAL also had their recruitment one or two months back... it's based in Singapore but they seldom have recruitment de...

well, if it's what u aspire to be, i will strongly encourage you to keep trying... coz no point hesitating when there's the recruiment coming, by the time you decide you wanna go, it'll be over and you have to wait for the next one lo... Waste time right??? :cry:

Never be afraid to fail, coz it's part of your life, just learn from it and do better the next time... whether you're going for interview or doing a business or whatever you do, it's the same principle isn't it???

Whether you can make it or not as long as you give in your best, there wont be any regrets... :wink:
Soaring above all

i will be happy to work in other airlines...i like to be a flight attendant...i will apply for other airlines but chances are limited...i am sure other airline interview process is the same as sia...but if you want to work as a cabin crew, who won't choose the better one

well sometimes its not about the answer you give. sometimes the interviewers are looking out on how you think on the spot and come up with an answer in less than a few seconds. sometimes its about how you present yourself and speak in public. you just have to be confident and keep smiling. sometimes there isn't really a perfect answer, its just about how you can convince the interviewers that your image and personality fits the job.
