Referrring to the previous messages on SIA maternity leave for thier female cabin crew, ground jobs, and flying mothers.

Just want to confirm with you guys that, yes, SIA do provide maternity leave for girls who are married and pregnant. My colleague got pregnant last year, went for a maternity, of course she is paid during the 3 months, and back to work again this year. And in my team, there are already 2 flying mothers.

So...flying may not be a long time career, but i must say, as long as u maintain your figure & look, you can fly for as long as you like. Just like our Chief Stewardess, she is already 42, then again, she dont look at 42 but mid 30s. Still looking good & gorgeous!

So girls who are keen and dream to be with SIA as thier Stewardess.. dream no more! Put it into action.

Heard that after the recruitment exercise for Indian Stewardess this round, SIA will be recruiting Local Stewardess again in late June or early July. This news is gotten from my collegue's husband, who is working in the HR department of SIA Training Centre. So think should be rather accurate!

Keep a look out for the recruitment Girls!

Hope to you more of you on flights!

:)


Hi Rachel, Is it true wot you were saying? I mean they are gonna recruit again in June or July? I do certainly hope so...........I missed April intake due to some reasons and I was considering whether to apply or not because am supposed to go to Melbourne for my BA and supposed to join my bf, who is scottish, over there.........I do hope they have July intake because been waiting for it to happen..........Next recruitment would be for Singaporeans or Malaysians? Thanks


Hi Rach & Becky..
Wonderin when they will recruit Indonesian stewardesses? I missed the last iApril intake too, Becky! Oh, so sad...I'll be 25 y.o in June, do you think I still stand a chance? Thanks so much for sharing, girls!!


Hey KittyKat, I wonder where are you living in now? You live in Indonesia? I have a Indonesian friend, best friend, she wants to apply too but she also missed the April intake. Since living in Malaysia, I think it's ok if you're Indonesian but living in malaysia to apply for "Malaysian Stewardess" rather than "Indonesian Stewardess"? coz the Indonesian round was being conducted in Indonesia. They even ask you in the online application form where you wanna be interviewed.......we'll try again in late June or July(if there's one) :)

contact lenses?

Postby becky » Tue, 31 May 2005 7:39 pm

Hey, I wonder if SIA allow contact lenses? Been a worry of mine coz I wear them and what is "perfect vision" about? I noticed from the SIA cabin crew recruitment page for "Malaysian Stewardess" states that one must have "perfect vision" while for "Indonesian Stewardess", it states "perfect vision(not colour blind)"...........wot does it mean? Does perfect vision means you cannot be colour blind? or does it means you must have 20/20 vision even without glasses or contact lenses? Without contact lenses I still can see(but not very clear).....thanks

thx..:)

hey vien, from what i know emirates only conducts walk ins... i detailed the emirates interview step by step a few pages ago... i should think that the one in bali will be about the same?? its mainly discussion groups... i should think that as long as u are proactive, u will stand a good chance. also, for the first round they teng to asl political/economis/sociological sort of questions. a few that i heard were "if u were the singapore prime minister, what are 5 laws you would change and y" so READ up to prepare yourself... good luck!! :D

SIA interview

Hi, I heard from someone working in SIA that from the last interview (April), the number of stewards intake was not sufficient ( ard 20-30 ), is this true ?
I heard that SIA is in need of stewards now.
When will the next intake of stewards be ? Is it Jun/Jul ?

i hope i get thru!


hey suzy
im going down for tmr's silkair interview
was there alot pple?
oh u wont let to know on the spot that u are selected?
for emirates they will tell u on the spot.


not hey wont tell u ont he spot. they will tell u that they will call you within a weeks time if u are shortlisted. i heard from a friend that if u are not selected, they will send u back this slip that u fill up b4 the actual interview. it hink the slip basically tells u that u were not selected and thanks for trying or something like that.

i went at 915am and there were less than 10 pple there.. i was in the first group. after my group finished, about 15 mins later, there were only abt maybe 15-10 pple outside waiting? but iheard after lunch time it was quite packed...

i dunno what the interview is gonna be like tmw, they may change it ard, im not sure. but whatever it is, good luck and all the best =)

silkair interview

Postby Illusion~ » Wed, 01 Jun 2005 9:51 am

The interviews for SilkAir is the same on both days . First round doing a self-introduction followed by reading a short passage. It is not a difficult passage at all so rest assured.

The interviewers who are looking at you while you are introducing yourself is just judging you on how well you carry yourself and of course, your content of introduction. They are not looking for scars etc.

The short passage that you will be reading is just any kind of annoucements that you might need to make when you are a flight stewardess. So at this point of time, they are checking out on your fluency of English.

Be confident with yourself during the interview, carry yourself well.

Be friendly and smile lots. =)

SIA Interview

Postby Kyo » Wed, 01 Jun 2005 10:41 am

Hi everyone,

I posted a new topic without realising there is already such an active discussion going on here regarding SIA cabin crew. The last time SIA was looking for stewardess, I applied but did not even get call up for the interview.

I did not fill up the application form and just emailed them my resume directly. I waited and waited and waited.... was feeling quite upset and wondering what went wrong :cry: So I was hoping someone could help me out, is it better to:

1) fill up the application form and sent it through email or normal mail

2) fill up the application form and sent it together with your resume through email or normal mail

Could somone please advise? I really want to be called up for the next interview when it opens. Thanks :)

Kyo,

I think you did not follow the instructions on the application. If I recall correctly, you should have completed the application form.

Rachel is the recruitment for stewards only in 2006? - Gosh!

Good luck to all.

Hi Becky! Currently I'm livin in Jakarta, Indonesia. About the contact lenses, I wear them too! But from what I read in the requirements for Indonesian Stewardesses were : "the use of contact lenses are acceptable". I'm sure it should apply for all stewardesses requirements, right? Dat's why I'm kinda encouraged to apply since from what I know, most airlines doesn't allow contact lenses, means your eyesight should be perfect! :cry: Really you have a friend in Indonesia? Maybe you should ask her to join dis forum and we can really chat. Or if you have a yahoo messenger, just add me : singlesilva@yahoo.com. About the recruitment of stewardesses, is it ok if I join the Singapore or Malaysian recruitment? Since I'm kinda planning to go there for a vacation sometime in June / July!

Pleasure to talk to you.

Cheers,
KittyKat
