I've gotten the lassy or lassie passage. got some words like carousel and the rest can't really remember but try to make the passage lively, dun read in monotonous manner. I think its ok if u cant pronounce some words, 1 or 2, one of my fren dun even need to read passage :wink: , u must have mesmorised the interviewer rite u

how i wish i can skip the passage if i have the chance to reach 1-1 stage..

But does your fren get into mgt even though she does not need to read the passage? i guess maybe her english is good enough, that's y the interviewer thinks there's no pt for her to read the passage anymore.. :)

Can someone pls share with me if the passage that we have to read during 1-1 interview is difficult?
On my last try with SQ 1 year back, i failed on 1-1.. i was so nervous after the interviewer keep shooting me with difficult questions. I couldn't even speak properly and i read the passage very badly. i mispronounced and stumbled alot..

I'm trying again this time.. hope someone can guide me pls..

:)


i also fail at 1-1 on my laz 27th write-in. actuali...my passage reading got 3 like average. Its only my answering. I wasnt thinking about how my answer shld be. I guess we jz had to prepare ourselves better on the answering n hup i'll as lucky again.

Just to share my experience, I just sign the contract with SIA. i am batch 943 and i will be commencing the 4 months training on the second day of the year 2008.

My contract is 5 years, meaning to say SIA will ave to employee me as their good employee for the next 5 years (provided that i've done nothing wrong). However, my bond is only for 18 months (which is not inclusive of the 4 months training).

So to say, i can leave without paying any liquidated damages to SIA after the 22 months including training period. If i were to breach the contract and leave SIA before that, i will need to pay the maximum of $13,200 to SIA but this amount will be pro-rated.

Hope this clears everything...

I guess they get confuse with the bond and contract. Bond = You have to finish serving it or else you will have to pay back the company the training fee. Contract = You can quit anytime after serving the bond by giving a 7 or 14 days notice to the company. The company will decide upon the completion
of the contract whether to offer you another 5 year contract base on your service record for the past 5 years. If they decided not to, then you are out of job :cry: Hope this clarify the difference between the two.



Hi abercrombie. Thanks for the explanation. You seem very experienced in this :wink: Fortunately, the bond stays at 2 years, meaning I can pursue my dreams with less hestitation. I cannot really predict what I am going to do 5 years from now, much less to say to make such a decision. Good news for everyone I believe. :D

Hey peeps,

It seems like most people who are attending the interview on 3rd jan are on their way to mgt round..

however for me, i am scheduled on 3rd for my first round...
didn't hear anyone going for their first round on 3rd??
anyone??

i was wondering if there is a possibility that everything will be conducted within a day?

Postby aletheatan » Sun, 30 Dec 2007 7:29 pm

yes...3rd Jan are for those gg for their mgmt interview....as they have already went thru the 1st 3 rounds on the 27th Dec....so their 1 final hurdle before they get appointed by SIA (of coz there's medical too)

As for yourself...it will be a 1st round of interview. If u get thru...you will move on to 2nd round (kebaya n skin check)...succeed again ---> 3rd round: 1 - 1 interview. Finally, if u manage to clear this well...you will go to Mgmt Round..which is the final round.

Sometimes, if u r in the early slot...you will clear everything in 1 day. But if u r in the late slot or if there are too many pple...they will re-schedule ur management on another day.

hope the above clarifies...you can also refer to post threads on the many rounds....their experience etc.

Good Luck!
