:x :x

Read out his all posts! he just posts, very rude, insulting remarks, saying like, 'dumbheaded...'

Plavt, very good huh? all the posts are pro on you??? hahaha what a funny thread it is ! Why don't you delete those all the accounts, instulting the OP, saying childish and etc? huh?

I've met in real one of the above posters. I am not hiding, not like you.

Wowww... very monopolic opinions! Good huh?
:evil: :evil: :evil:


Well, honestly I would have posted the same kind of remark because some people just either can't get what we are trying to say or just couldn't be bothered by the advices we've given. In turn they think we are being snobbish "know-everything" kind of people and have bad opinions about us. You think we are being rude?

Wait until you become a cabin crew. Don't be surprised if seniors scold you for no reason, write a report against you for standing for your rights, make you do everything (well you can't fight back, you are the most junior), have trays and everything thrown at you, blame you for doing something you never did, etc, etc. You're scared each time you go for a flight.

Of coz there are nice crews out there but you can't have everything in this world. As harsh as you think we are, we are trying to give you advice.

Don't ask, when the next interview is. Even flyers like me do not know until the information is posted on the airlines' respective websites.

Don't ask what you should wear. You think this is a professional or a part-time job? If you think it's a professional job, present yourself professionally like wearing a suit and heels (or smart polished shoes for guys) like making a business deal. Well you are the deal that's why you are going all out for this.

Simply don't ask questions that have been asked MANY TIMES or information you can find out on your own by going to the airlines' respective websites. This just show how lazy you are and expected to be spoon fed.

What I used to do before landing a job as a cabin crew is go to every airlines' websites I know to see if they recruit Singaporeans. If you don't know what the website address is, simply go to Yahoo! or Google and search for it. How hard can that be? If you can't see the careers section, just click on every link they have. You might not find it yet but you are seeing a lot of information about the airline and go, "Hmmm I didn't know that!" If you see something like "must be authorized to work in [name of country]" means you won't be able to apply unless you possess a working permit of that country.

I've even randomly Yahoo! and Google on "cabin crew", "flight attendants", flight stewardess", etc, etc just to try my luck if I can find anything. This is called RESEARCH. If you ask me, it's more rewarding to find information on your own then to ask people. Because I really wanted the job so bad, I've read every single page of the SIA Cabin Crew thread. Yes I know it's long but you can make a few minutes reading a few pages each day. Until then you will understand how irritating it is to see the same questions asked 10 times and it's not even half the number of pages yet.

Don't complain on why you didn't get through to the next round of interview. Look back and think what you have done wrong. Even if the next candidate isn't as pretty as you, she might have done or possess something you haven't got which can be critical. Sometimes even the smallest of thing can make or break you. Continue doing you research.

I've mentioned this before that I have been to countless interviews and was on the brim of giving up but because of the knowledge I possessed through all the research I've done, I finally landed a job as cabin crew and have now flown for 2 different airlines. If you ask me, no it wasn't an easy process but the result at the end of it is rewarding.

So my final advice is not to take people's comments negatively but in turn take it as a lesson. If you keep being negative about the slightest comments, you won't stay long if you ever land a job as a cabin crew. Trust me, you'd get harsher comments up there. It's not a glamorous job you know.

fffff's account is still active but yours aint spring. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Perhaps when you learn to post something useful and constructive I and many others might bother to listen to you. I have helped quite a few here which of course you know nothing about. As for 'hiding' rather difficult to do anything else since I'm around 9,000 miles away but then perhaps that is just as well for your sake. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Regarding the space in the database; this forum has over 45000 users. Therefore a few kilobytes soon becomes a few Gigabytes and so on. You may notice your post count sometimes goes down; that is because the admin sometimes prunes the database for the reasons mentioned. So much for the person who posted abusive remarks and piously assuming the issue be trivial (that person no longer posts)
