ya, i think so too. i think the pp helping out there are current crews while those conducting the interviews are either senior crews or the management pp in sg.

Forgot to share something with all of you. They added 2cm more to my height. Hahaha, probably i'm still 'growing'.

I think that there's not much ppl at the interview. The whole place is so quiet. I don't see any man coming for the interview too.

Yeh... the waiting room's pretty quiet.. think they staggered the interview slots pretty well... but i can see the stacks of interviewees' profile on their desks.. my guess is they prob. interview a couple hundreds a day... :D

i heard from my friend that her ex-colleague told her BA took in all ex-crews at their recruitment 2 or 3yrs ago..
if that's truth, think i gone case liao.. cos i don't have any exp as a crew. :?

lets pray and hope they will call us soon. :)


It might just be a coincidence they took in all ex-crew in that recruitment. I'm sure if they only want applicants with crew experience they wouldn't even see us for stage one as they would be wasting our and their time.

Flew on BA a few years ago to SYD. Spoke to a friendly Singapore crew who's been flying a long time (7/8 years i think). Asked if she was with SQ before. She said no. She used to work in a hotel.

I think it's how you 'sell' yourself on that day and if they're convinced that you would make an excellent crew who is very good in delivering excellent customer service.

Hahaha! I wish!!! As Dru correctly pointed out, i was travelling as a passenger!

At 2nd stage of the last recruitment, they did share with us that BA Singapore crew fly mainly to Sydney, Shanghai and London. Trip lengths between 3-10 days. Not sure if more routes have been added since.

First they shared with us about the contract, ie temp contract, the pay, ie basic 500 + allowances, routes, the job scope etc.

We then did a group exercise. We were told to discuss amongst ourselves what charitable organisations we would like to donate to.

After that, we were given 2 written tests which involved calculations, macam problem sums. Calculators were provided. The tests were not too difficult, not calculus as posted on this forum during the last recruitment, but there was atime limit.

The whole session went quickly. Didn't feel like 4 hrs. Even though i didn't make it through, it was a good experience. Hopefully i get to experience it again!
