Just offering my opinion, i've read past threads and chances are they will take note of your ban or ask you when was your last try and at which stage you failed, so it's better to be honest and keep to the ban rather than feeling disappointed again. But then i've also read about one case where they totally overlooked her ban and passed her. So.... good luck! :)


that's why i was debating whether i should try again in one or two month later.. oso becuz i read baout the gal who got ban but she went ahead and passed... =/

Dilemma...


I think can try but be mentally prepared to get rejected cos of the ban... and bring all your lucky charms along! hee


i don mind trying... juz afraid they might blacklist me... =(
Will not give up my dream to fly!! =D
I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward

Well, to begin with, what you are going to do after flying depends on your strengths. There are always opportunities out there, and if you are good enough to link up your experience in SIA to the job that you want to work in, this experience will definitely help you.

I've seen people whom after leaving SIA working in HR firm, recruitment firms, sales related industry. It is never really about the kind of work you do, it is about how you are able to link your past experience and position yourself to your future employer.

If you think being a stewardess is just a pretty face, or high-class waitress, then perhaps you do not understand this industry well enough. By the way, there are people who worked many years in the industry and they earn enough to set up their own business. So really, there's lots of way out unless you have already set your mind that there isn't. :)
And so my journey begins... :)

This question I also don't knowhow to answer you :???:
The word BAN simply means BAN, there is no other meaning to it.
If you try might get through if they overlook, else you get blacklisted....
Try this, if you get ban for driving for 3 months will you still want to drive during this 3 months. There are people who tried and nothing happen and there are also those who tried and get caught. The decision is up to you only and nobody can help you because they are not the one to face the consequences of the outcome.

what does Certificate of Service (NS)( only for FS candidates), what is FS?

Appreciates if anyone could give me an answer? Thanks.


What is your purpose of going to the HR interview room. To sign the bond or to go for mgmt interview??

If you are going for mgmt interview, obviously you want to leave a good impression by dressing in formal attire, i.e shirt and pants, if you want, add a tie, but that one up to individual lah. If not you just might risk being booted out cause interviewers might find that you did not respect this interview process enough.

If you are there to sign bond, it would still be a good idea to dress smart casual, cause you never know who's looking at you. A little respect for your future employer will be good. :)

Hope this helps.

Better play safe, they ask you to wait 3mths you wait 3mths. If not later they pull out your record, they also can ask you to come back next time.

And that might leave a bad impression la, cause they might perceive you to be someone who don't listen... Its heng suay thing, some people manage to get lucky, but honestly, how many people are really that lucky?

Think through properly first ya babe. :)

Always go with a long sleeve shirt with pants and leather shoe. Bring a tie just in case everyone there put on tie then you can put it on. You are never wrong to overdress but underdress really kills you :wink:
