Hi everybody,

I am sooo very new in here... in fact i jz found this forum today... & gosh, i declare that i have read total of almost 200pages at one time from 7pm till midnight... PHEW!!!.. I was tat engross... Newae im glad i had found sumthin resourceful at last!! I have been findin an address or email to write in instead.. this is due to because I had bad experience goin for the walk-in the last time... *haiz*..long story...

Bt nonetheless I stil came down for the walk-in today only because the HR lady gave me assurance on certain issues...

The story is the last time I went, I was rejected at queue jz because I dont have any 'O' lvls... Bt the strange thing is I have a diploma.. Ridiculous I tell you!!.. plus the lady who screen me was loud!! Gosh!! U imagine with the crowd today hw embarassin it was for me.. So I called up the HR and she told me I wldnt have any problem this time.. And this was my second attempt with SQ... I had always been trying SILKAIR because I meet their requirements. Bt I had always want to see the world.. dun get me wrng... that is nt my motive to join.. this is really my hardcore passion.. (if thats a term I shld use)..

Afterall that boost of confidence built, got thru from the screenin.. nt until I reach the measurement stage, the measure me at 156.65.. Im like WTF!!!... I rmbr the last I measured was 1.58 at least.. I thot I shrink bt it happen to my fren too...

So then I thot I wld jz wait for the write-in..

The qns is:

- Can I jz submit my resume to the cabin crew email add and use the application form from the write in format or shld I wait for the advertisement on the web first??

- If I happen to shortlisted, wld my chance to pass thru the height test be still slim??


Dats my qns for nw... There seems to be many more bt gz I'll take one step at a time....

height measurements : Bring your own measuring tape the next time
"leniency to shorter girls" : No leniency should be given as this is a Requirement for a reason
ban period : They want to have fresh people trying and not the same group of people at every interviews, They reject for a reason so a period of time as given for you to improve yourself

There are other job interviews that stated that people who tried before need not apply

and congrats to "purplesara","jeanette_tohjh", "hikari82" for making it so far. keep up the good work ( plus plenty of luck) and bring forum more crews!

To "iwannefly",dun gif up. I am sure u'll to make it in the near future!

And "rinnuwatanabe", For 1-1 & Mgt rds, the interviewers are SIA staff, cause I saw some of them when I STC 4 interview. The rest should be hiring company ppl as I saw some of the "taking height" staff filling in application forms in the later part of the evening

And about the height, they are right to be so particuarly (though it might not be 100% accurate) as alot of safety equipments, safe aid kit and fire-fighting equipments are placed quite high. So they need to make sure they hire staffs with certain height so crew can able to retrieve these equip in case of emergencies.


I know that but this my first time get rejected cause of my height, why i can manage to go for other airline till the final man... further more their criteria is much more higher then SQ lei... i just dont understand .... :-|

"rinnuwatanabe" I guess that will depend on luck due to such inconsistence. I heard of ppl who dun pass the height, but the next time they do. Anyway, being selected, preparation 60% luck 40%.

Dont be demoralise...

May be leniency for "shorter" heights isnt exactly wat u ppl think she meant... short in some sense that if ur 1.56 plus to 1.57 at least we shld be given the test or the arm reach....

this height measurement thingy today happened to alot alot of ppl.. hmm... prolly Adecco and SIA have different measurement scales or maybe younger gals have different method of measuring.. like u noe older aunties at the SIA walk in will remind you to stand straight etc.. but not for the younger gals?
