I didn't go for the walk-in interview this time but just my 2 cents worth on this..
For those who got in, of course it's easier to tell the other girls/guys that we need to be confident, let the personality shine through etc but sometimes, these things are just not enough to get us through. We saw so many examples of girls that we felt really have the qualities to make it but in the end, you know what happens. What I'm trying to say is luck plays a part too in the interviews. Really, it's just a matter of whether the interviewers like you or not. If it happens that the interviewers just feel that you don't seem good enough for them or what, I just feel that no matter what you do or say won't help much. Nothing you can do much about how they perceive you.
And I just think that SIA is being quite anal, especially when it comes to skin and body checks. I heard from friends about how they got criticized about the little little marks they had on their bodies. I even had a friend who was told that her left ear is flatter than the other ear! I think it's ok if they pinpoint the faults you have but I think it'll be a tad too much if the faults they pointed out won't be obvious when you put on the uniform. It's really quite mean I feel.
So girls! Don't feel like you are really ugly or what cos confidence is still important. Those interviewers are humans afterall and the way they judge things differs from one another. Maybe I'll try out for the december recruitment (if there is one) and hope I have lady luck on my side!!!
Am not trying to rebutt whatever you are typing...but just wanna share what I thought....
For those who had been through the interview, of course by now you would know how to express that kind of confidence (by seeing who got in) in Grp Interview..I do agree that luck plays on this part as well. As what many others here have posted, SIA know what to look out for potential candidates. Those who responded to questions like how to score or whatever, were just trying to help and give some pointers which they thought would help. You can simply ignore the ideal of getting such tips. But then, it wouldn't be fair for you to think that whatever tips they had given were hopeless etc, these might have actually helped people get pass to Round 1 or even all rounds! Also, since you know what kind of attitude etc is needed, then maybe you can try to achieve it and work towards it if you really want the job! By the way, like what most people understand and posted, the job sounds glam, the money is good! but then it's just another waiting and customer service job that has slightly that better benefits and exposure.
As for the criticism and such, the world is just so bitchy, think it this way, they were just preparing you! If you can't take that kind of remarks, how are you going to finish that bond and serve customers? If you'd actually scanned through the forum, you would have definetly read about how the senior stewardess "tekan" the juniors. Come to think of it, which job do not have such bitchiness??
True the interviewers are humans, but SIA is a big Corporate Company, there are bound to have a set of rules and guidelines on employment, the interviewers don't own the Company.Everyone should try and of course, it would be good if you are employed...if not, take it as an experience and strive hard to be accepted for the next one!
Building up your own confidence and looking on the bright side is more important for you to prepare for the next interview! Do not give up! Good luck
