anyway i was in the 1st grp of 8 guys and only 2 proceeded to round 2! our grp only got 2 relatively cute guys and they didnt get in! everyone has an average level of eloquence so im really unsure what the interviewers were looking for....


yeah. haha. they really make you wonder all the time. i guess luck plays a part too. but average eloquence + a friendly disposition can be quite a lethal combo i'd suppose. practice in the mirror! jia you ah. :)

at the skin check i toe the that i'm undergoing treatment for the slight scar or indention above my brows, and said that it will be good after 3 or 5 visits..

and are there anymore reception or tea party or cocktail in this write in? i dun wan kena that one man..



To fix the indentation on your brows, there are two methods and they are

1. laser resurfacing
2. filler

Both are very expansive where treatment is at SGD500 and above.


thanks for that.. =) u gonna fix it?


I will be doing subcision and filler on my chicken pox indentation on my forehead and the procedure cost around SGD800. The filler only fix the scar for 6 - 12 mths as it is a temporary filler.


goodness... is yours very obvious? i dunno if i shud do anything to it.. cos mines not obvious..


Mine is not that obvious with makeup and under close surtinisation, you can only see it. If the interviewer makes a remark, I guess we should do something about it



girls don't worry too much about the chicken pox indentation...i have one also...just about 1 inch beside my nose...so it can be clearly seen..but i still pass the skin check...
btw i did consult doc about filler and other option but the result is not permenant...and very little can be correct also..
next time before you go for 1-1 interview, dont forget to check your makeup too....cos the interviewer dont just ask question... they also look at your appearance....cos she wrote about my chicken pox indentation...
overall, i would say u need to be calm during the interview...so that u dont stumble when you speak and that's important..

Likely whatever you said in all your prev rounds will be noted down and handed to the interviewers for mgmt round. As to whether they will ask really up to them. If the lady pass you for skin check, should not be worried la. :)

Anyways no more reception or tea party this time round. Just mgmt and then medical that's all.
And so my journey begins... :)

we all got really general questions. stuff like...
- tell us more about your family
- what qualities you have in order to be a steward(ess)?
- do you do household chores?
- how many times have you tried applying for this position?
- do you think you know why you weren't successful previously?

very general questions. i dunno if anyone got situational-based questions. but i know someone had the interviewer saying "so, you were a hairstylist before?" (or something along that line). haha. :)


Yea much about these stuffs for questions asked, can see prev few posts, the questions are really general, and they will decide what to ask you from then on after you answered.

I was asked of what challenges do I foresee in the job and how to overcome it. Of course don't badmouth SIA, just say things like cultural differences may make passengers seem demanding, so as long as we're patient and listen to their needs, such misunderstandings or difficult situations can be handled. I even told them I didn't have experience in customer service, but said that I believe I will be able to do my job well if I were put through the formal training because I'm willing to learn. :P

So long as you can point out that you have the qualities to be cabin crew and that you can justify it, mgmt should go fine. Of course I was freaking nervous hahahaha but well, just pretend to look calm.
And so my journey begins... :)

Yup, im sure all of us if not most in the room yesterday.. were freaking out. i was tad too nervous and especially if u have to wait longer (im the last few to go) and i had all sorts of nonsense going thru my mind like wat if Im the only girl who wun make it and stuff...! but nonetheless, the interviewers were very very nice i must say. Jus keep talking and smile, it'll make u feel better.
Congrats to all who made it. Just one medical to go so dun worry!!

It's good to hear that most people who went for the management interview yesterday managed to pass! Congratulations!!!!!

For those who didn't, strive harder and i believe your dream will come through. :)

What about those who attended the 1st round? Anyone passed? What is the passing rate this time round?
