i need to enquire on something. 30th Jan i need to report at the HR interview Room at SIA Training Centre. May i know what is the attire? reason why i asked this is because im still serving my national service. so can i go casual or? tues i will still be out on the field man. sigh.

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.


hey xanngac,
im one of those lucky ones that manage to clear all rounds today. so im like those selected lah. i also got the form to go for medical examination and XRAY but those forms that they gave us ask us to report at HR interview room. its the pre employment briefing.. so im like kinda lost; what should i wear?
because i will be back in camp tonight. and sad to say, tues igot a field camp. im kinda worried it finished late.


Hmm better go in casual smart at least lor though a briefing, still must be dress to show that you are sincere.
And so my journey begins... :)

My Interview

Postby aliciagloria » Mon, 28 Jan 2008 12:06 am

hey ppl...I reached at 8am and was in Grp 1 today. Venie, ur fren Val something is in my grp....cant rem her face thou. The self intro was ok, It was 2 male interviewers & there's no fixed topic meaning we could talk about anything under e sun, interest, dogs etc. 6/10 made it to round 2.

some of u r curious to know my outcome today....well, no gd news from my end though coz I Failed at Kebaya round! didnt even make it to the skin check. =(

I did my walk but was kinda stiff so the lady gave me another chance n I walked again. She than said, it was much better. After which, she asked me qns like "wat r u working as and how long have u been with the company" I answered as per usual. 1 funny qn asked was, "Do u always paint your nails? coz she saw i had red painted nails. =p I replied "yes, I love to paint my nails" haha...sounds quite bimbo. I then stretch out my arms (front + back) to show her; no scars.

After which, it was the most horrible sentence "I'm afraid you didnt make it" I was stunned and disappointed at e same time. She DIDNT even let me go to skin check. I asked her wat's wrong with me, she said she will tell me after e interview so i said ok and proceed to change out of the kebaya...............

I was curious to wat reason(s) she has to tell me so i waited until most of the grp gals went out and she was free for awhile to talk. Her reason kinda shocked me! She said "You dont have the looks, SIA has a certain look to follow" wah,after hearing this, my heart almost stopped..I dont believe it! I dont think I am ugly or watsoever, I have seen average looking gals passed thru too....hmm,I really wonder....

Therefore, I can conclude that its my SHORT FRINGE that got me booted out! I dont look nice with tied hair + short fringe in front. She did ask everyone to tie up the fringe but I dont have pin and e other gals in e grp oso dun have....sigh. regretted not bringing one man...

I remember seeing some stewardess have short fringe but those have short hair as well..I tot SIA dun go for looks now? seems like its otherwise still..I'm thinking of cutting my hair short if i get booted out at kebaya the next time I try......

Yes,I'm disappointed by wat e lady said but I will not give up & try again for e next write-in/walk in.

Cya all at e gathering! =)

hmm, i think what the lady is trying to say is having a friendly and approachable face, has charisma and a personality?

just relax, and be yourself whilst doing your walk. do maintain your posture and of course, your smile! =DD

wow...she is really mean leh, for me, i failed at the kebaya-skin check round, was in group 21. I have no idea why too, the lady nv say anything about my walk, she just ask me for a self introduction and ask me what sports I like to play then I went for skin check round already.

And the lady in pink at the skin check was pretty fine with me and even said I look like a Eurasian and thats a compliment so I should be proud of it.

hmm..I have no idea why I failed too... maybe cos I nv conceal properly my chicken pox scars at the side of my face. sigh..need to requene next time again..super demoralising...
