Confirm its going to be 3mths training not 4mths is it?


heard is 3 months for the jan 2nd's batch.. so i think it's gonna be the same for us..

another friend of mine start in nov'07, for hers is 3.5 months..

so it's roughly 3 months lo..



btw...there's no need for us to paint our nails and bun our hair on the first day of training right?


Hehe ok tks Venie, fill us in on more details when your training starts. :)

Think no need to paint our nails and bun our hair right? Ok cause I know nothing about bunning my hair the SQ way! :P
And so my journey begins... :)

hmm.. my friend says first two days no need..

only after you start your grooming course, you have to put on your "nice" bluey eye shadow, "reddy" nails & the little grandma bun.. keke

for me no need the bun coz i have short hair.. purposely cut short de so that i can save time.. just comb and spray lotsa hair spray. lolx.

but they will teach you how to do that.. wont torture you de la..
heard training is gonna be tons of fun... you meet ppl who shares the same passion as you and you get to do things together.

what i look forward is the emergency training.. keke..
just like what we saw in the jap drama "Attention Please"
practical training leh.. i like.. keke...
Soaring above all

Haha hands-on training more interactive and fun, definitely better than just theory! :)

Yah, to meet people who shares the same passion, its going to be really fun. Very lucky to have met nice people like okieping and minikk during our interviews. Would be great if we can train together! :)
And so my journey begins... :)

Hi Yingying2888, I was thrown the exact same questions. This is what I answered and apparently, the interviewers nodded their heads with approval.

-Ability to cope with politics and bullying (eg. asking what you would do if a superior instructed you to do something you knew was wrong)

In any given situation when I'm told to complete a task which defies the constitution and integrity of either myself or my organization, I will first judge the exact task. Will it hurt another person? Will it cause unnecessary trouble? Is it against my own conscience? Honestly, if it doesn't fit into any of that criterias, I'll do it first, then I will approach my supervisor for enlightenment. Only then, will I not taken to task for insubordination. I definitely am justified to speak up, of course, in a polite manner.

-How you would deal with superiors who are younger than you / less capable than you when faced with bullying

A lot of people are born with the gift of the gap. Having this gift will allow them to think that they can talk their way out of any situation. But the greatest lesson to learn, if one really possesses this gift, is to learn when not to use it. Hierarchy occurs in all organization. Even if this particular person happens to be less capable or younger, he/she is still my superior. I will give the due respect, but will try to approach others with an equal or higher ranking to gain enlightenment.

Bottom line is, always put yourself in a protected but subordinated position. Only then will you give them the impression that you have a willingness to help, learn, assist and improve yourself.

All the best and good luck!
