Singaporegrrl,

=D> =D> =D>

Good shot pity so many won't listen. :( Having worked shifts and amongst the public most of my life I know just what you mean. So many here see the 'positive aspect' without considering the reality. The airline as many other employers to some degree deserve some of the blame as they will advertise their vacancies with a 'positive image'.

Potential applicants need to think, plan and find out in advance. Those who are honest with themselves might actually conclude this is not the job or life-style for them. :-|

During my training, a lot have started questioning themselves as to why they chose this job after learning all the downside of being a cabin crew, during training. 1 had actually quit after just over a week of training. I've known of many who quit just after a few flights.

Rarely, but it does happen, that you'd see trays flying around in the galley and seniors correcting you brutally in front of passengers making you feel embarrassed BIG TIME. Although they can be reported, imagine the emotional stress you go through with this.

Prospective candidates need to do a lot of research before embarking on a career like this. We're not trying to bring the morale of prospective candidates but are merely stating what we know. It's a harsh world but people like me are surviving with a positive mindset. Even so, I don't think I will stay in this industry for long. It's already taking a toll on my health and I'm only over 20! I'm accepting the fact that it is not a job for me in future.

Also, don't depend solely on this forum. 90% of the people here are NOT already in the job. They do not know the exact description of training and working onboard yet. They only know a lot about interview rounds if they have gone through them already. Even so, a lot of interview procedures, despite any airline, changes through time.

Therefore, if you really want this job badly, take the time to Yahoo! and Google about the job. There are heaps of information just a few typing and clicks away. The world wide web is incredibly filled with information. Make full use of it.

A worthy consideration, years of stress take there toll and many women once they are married and have children to tend to will not be interested anymore. I can't remember where I read it but isn't there an issue with cosmic rays affecting cabin crews health?

Just want to clarify certain things since it has been asked plenty of time.


OPEN DAYS: IT'S OPEN TO PUBLIC. [THE WORD "OPEN" IS ALREADY ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND]

ASSESSMENT DAYS: IT'S ONLY FOR THOSE WHO GOT THE INVITATION FOR THE INTERVIEW.


*I will not be surprised someone who might be asking this question again.

Just want to give information on regards to the full length photo.

I understand that most studios charge high and so on.
But I have found one studio that charge only at $39.90.
Outfit: your own
Make-up & hair-do: they will provide

At the end of the day, they will give you 2 pictures in CD. And 1 print out.

Good deal.

The place is call the Talent House Studio.
Contact person is Shasha: 62994001

Good Luck everyone.

Ps: I just did a review on the photo shoot I had just now.

Saving peoples' life is just my profession now.
Anyways, I understand that most of you are troubled looking for Sally Hansen. For your info, they've stopped selling it everywhere. So, don't bother looking for it.

For those who totally want to conceal their scars, pimples/acnes, or whatever else. I have found a good concealer that gives all the extra coverage.

It's called the Camouflage Concealer - widely known to the make-up artist.

I bought mine at Bugis Street. 2nd floor. One of the beauty shop. Just ask from them. They know what you are talking about. Cost: $25-30
OR
You could go to any make-up schools and asked them for the concealer. Cost: $35-50

I manage to snap picture of mine. This is how it looks like.

Good Luck!

Hey ladies,me just sharing...

Even if u cant find Sally Hansen Airspray,alterntively u can try looking for them on Yahoo Online Shopping,Sg Ebay etc...They have however different brands and shade as these products mainly came from overseas.
Try buying them from local sellers auctions than International auctions to save more on postage and handling fee which could cost about 20US$ for light item by economy or normal parcel for overseas item..While local postage and handling fee cost only not more than $4 depending on its weight..Anway i'm a regular Online Shopping buyer,and usually products arrived few days later after transaction has been made..


By the way,Queenie-mie
Erm as for the camouflage concealer, can i know what is the name of the shop??thanxxx
I'm currently using Covermark concealer brand to conceal my flaws and it works perfectly fine for me but would love to try out other brands too :)

Ok, so I figure that if you guys use concealer you might afraid that your shirt stain and so on. Sally Hansen, will stain your white top anyways.

NO need to worry anymore. I was surveying for good brands of airbrush spray.

I found one! I use it on myself and test it out. Works exactly well like Sally Hansen. The coverage is better for SCARS ONLY! Plus, it does NOT stain my white shirt and it stays the whole day.

Bought it at Raffles City Shopping, B1-21/22.
Shop name is Apothecary + Co
Cost: $100.60

The make up artist will be able to help those who need help on choosing the colour.

OR You guys could check out the other websites for airbrush make-up.
