Hi everyone, I just got my call frm British Airways too. Still wondering if I should go for the interview as I just received a promotion.

In any case, selerez, my interview is also on the 24th Monday at Holiday Inn PV, but time is 10.30am. I think they should have staggered the interviewees into different timeslots? I answered the call in pelting rain and it was so noisy I was afraid I got the details wrong. She also said the WHOLE interview would take 1 hour so I'm assuming we're just going there for the proficiency test? Or am I wrong? (Intending to take just a half day that day if I go for the interview)

From reading the threads, I understand that SIN based BA crew are paid in pounds. Does anyone have an inkling on an average monthly pay (in pounds or in Sing Dollars) of a SIN based BA crew? TIA peeps! :)

I'm a degree holder but I think it doesn't make a difference cos they just want people who have passes in both Chinese and English at O Levels.

Oh the lady said the language profiency test is on your mothertongue language. She told me the test will take abt 1h and there will be a career talk so I guess the entire thing might take for 2-3h?

My surname begins with L.

i mean i always feel communication and interaction isnt it more important...

i mean in any industry ppl will see hw u communicate..

i know some ppl actualli gt good cert but when come to meeting ppl they just can fit in...

pardon mi... i'm not trying to pin point anybodi here..
