Final Interview..

Postby MirageBomb » Sun, 16 Dec 2007 1:59 am

Hi all.. went for the Dec 1 walk-in interview, was in group 73 (hmm, did I remember right? lol).. only 3 gals frm my grp incl me got thru, and at least 1 gal didn't pass the 1-1 on Fri 7 Dec... not sure about the other gal, but heng heng I did... started to get anxious a couple of days ago coz still no word on the final interview..

My steward friend more kan cheong than me... rang me on Fri to say that his friend, who went for the 2nd round interviews on the same day as I did, already went for the final interview earlier that day. He was particularly concerned coz he heard that the woman who was supposed to e-mail me was on leave.

Think I should try to get in touch with SIA on Mon? And.. how long do you think they *usually* take to get back on those final interview details? Kancheong-ness, very infectious. :lol:

ive made it thru !
anyway , can some kind soul tell me what will be checked on during the medical test?

:)


They will check things like:
Urine test
Eyesight
Colour Blindness
Blood pressure
Breast lump
Some Q&A

I think that's about it.


n Xray to check your lungs too!


Primary check for chest xray is to check lungs function. but somehow they do look at ur backbone/spine as well.. one of the criteria for SIA is to have straight spine, else less than 20 degrees if curved. i'm one of the unfortunate few.. i was called back for a repeat xray for my back, as they wanna check if i have scoliosis (curved spine) and to measure the degrees. however during the second xray, i actually pestered the doc to reveal the results to me there and then! =) and i was told "no scoliosis at all! you must have been not standing straight during the first Xray!" i was relieved yet heart aching at the same time... cos.. for repeat Xray, you need to fork out $150 from ur own pocket. =( sob... so lesson learnt. stand straight during the chest xray! =)



hi,

u mean if first xray they found out that ur spine is crooked, they will ask u back for review? and u need to pay for 2nd time?

im very worried abt my medical...do u know roughly hw long will they call us ?:(

You will have to meet the minimum education qualification first for them to take you in. The minimum requirement changes from time to time sometime its O Levels sometime its A Levels so you got to check it out from the advertisment ya. If you have been to the interview before then the qualification should not be a problem already. As for the gap between your front teeth, it will depends on how serious it is, and of course most importantly the discretion of the individual interviewer.


Hey Abercrombie,

Appreciate the reply. Had wanted to PM you as you seem to be quite experienced in this line but i couldn't do so as i did not have enough posts.
In the self intro part, what do the panels like to hear? Like customer service and how you can contribute? I have been trying hard to compose a good self intro but always stuck at customer service and how to sound sincere in the meantime.. though in my line, i am always trying my best to win customer's loyalty by giving them the best service that exceeds their expectations.

You think i can stand a good chance based on my experience in wines? Really hope to be a sommelier on board..


Hi, gladys_lopez..

u said u have experience in wine industry?? r u currently working in wine industry? i have interest in wine, hard-liquor..wanna learn more about it..

Ben-Yng


Hi Ben,

nope..i'm in marine industry..i like wine..hard-liquor..wanna learn more about it..history..famous vineyards..the way to taste it..the way to serve it..the way to enjoy it..

what is your job actually? selling wine?? or bar steward..


Yeah.. I sell it. Lots of ppl say my job is really shiok, with lots of wine and dine and drinking on the job (getting paid to do it). hehe.. but end of the day, i will really love to visit these areas that produces all this wine and liquors.. First hand experience..
It's really my passion..


haha..good..this strong passion will bring you forward..your dream will definately comes true one day..lets work hard together..

pls dont mind tell me where you work..if possible allow me pay you a visit..i might not purchase anything coz i still have some stocks hehe..but if there is a dining place..I dont ind have my dinner there..perhaps the price for main course is within my affordable budget..hehe..table for one please~~

I have seen quite a few stewardess with your condition before, well I think it depends on the mood of the one conducting the check on that day...

Hi hellokittylove,

Congrats!!!Btw can i ask u hows the dropout rate today? The interviewers and how many guys got thru???

thanx and all the best on ur medical!!!



hi all,

drop out rate was 40-50% it was really sad, those who didn't make it got to go to the next room with the HR lady, and she will tell you to try again.

i think there were about 20 of us. but i left STC after briefing, i was among the earlier slot.
