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..

hi to all, I am shellen,22.
I also very interested in joining SIA as crew,but has failed 3times, all in the 1st round. My las try hit me the most when none was selected from my group. Of course through this forum, I have alot ppl succeeded after many times. But I still worried that I might not be that fotunate cause my highest quali is only O' level and sad to say...i do have some blemishes on my face. :(

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 ?:(


No worries sweetheart! you'll be good! trust me.. the possibility of failed medical check is very minimal. when the doc do the Q n As, just say no for all, she will ask u things like are you hospitalized before?, do you have menstrual problems, gastric problems that kinda of thing. and yep if your first xray show some suspicious abnormalities, they will call you for a 2nd Xray and you need to pay for it, 150bucks. and it took the HR personnel from SIA to get back to me about 11days after my medical checkup. Some were earlier, some later though we all wemt fpr the medical checkup on the same day, did the 2nd xray on the same day. So i guessed its by random. Rest assured! you'll be good.

all the best ger.

Cheers.

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:

Heya.. I just got in touch with SIA this morning, the lady asked me to keep a lookout for an email on Weds, and to call again if I didn't receive anything by then :) And yeah, she also said interview's *most likely* on 26th Dec.
