:shock: Why~!!!

:( Went for my 3rd attempt yesterday and failed at 1-to-1 interview. Worse, and my interview was conducted my previously final mgmt round interviewer! *smack forehead* Of all people.. why her?!

And the first question she pop me was, 'How do you feel after trying it out for so many times without any success?" .___________. zZzZzZzzz..

So naturally, she didn't pass me to get through final round..
Embrace the Day with Power Confidence! ^^v

Hi all,

I think it is really saddening that we tried a few times but werent selected. Anyway, the interviewers for this time look very friendly, 1 female & 1 male. However, only 2 were selected & 1 of them is even a practising lawyer. Those who spoke well or ex silk air stewardess did not get in too. Well, I think I won't try for SIA anymore. Just don;t know what they are looking for. I wonder if they have a guideline to let the staff know what they are looking out for a SIA girl...

Hi JadeiteJade,

thanks for your words of encouragement. Well, I kept smiling when I noticed the female interviewer looked at me a few times. She even looked at my application form for quite sometime after I finished my speech. But who knows, I still did not make it. I think I won't try the next recruitment in the next few months though.

Hi friends!

Guess I discovered this forum a little too late heheh. I was at the interview on 16 March (my 3rd attempt actually) and was among the last few guys to arrive. Forget my group number already haha. Noticed there were so many vacant seats around, or was it much crowded earlier on in the morning?

Anyway just to share my experience, my first round was with two friendly interviewers, a lady and a gentlemen. I think some of you who had them probably felt at ease, like i do. After the first round, only 4 of us got in.

Then the four of us were put together with another two guys for our 2nd round. This time is a little different from my previous second round, we were told to walk straight, face left and right and open up our palms for inspection. The lady who did the judgements was also warm and friendly and she noticed I had braces on my lower teeth. I thought I blew my chances. Went outside feeling so dejected.

After waiting, she finally came out and sais only 3 of us got in. Surprisingly, me and two other very smart looking guys were selected. I was so surprised (and also very very thankful) beyond words.

So we walked to the reception area for our 3rd round, and we were called one by one (but i guess we had different interviewers). The madam who interviewed me was such a nice and soft spoken lady. She asked me several questions in relation to what I wrote on my application form, described further about myself and my present work. Some bits about my personal life and the classic why do i want to be a flight steward question.

After that, i was told to wait outside. After a few minutes, I was told i managed to get to the 4th round (management, i think?). However, I will have to wait for my lower braces to be off before i can proceed to the 4th interview. Meanwhile i will have to email them once I've taken them off and schedule a seperate appointment for my 4th round. I feel Im walking on a very thin line, waiting and anticipating. Nevertheless Im very thankful to the ladies (and gentlemen) who got me through.

Can anyone kindly share how the eyetest and medical check up is done?

Thanks!!

Hey all....

As I can see yesterday's interview wasn't a very pleasant one (for the forumers) - DUN B DISHEARTENED!!! If this is what you want (especially when you want it so badly), then press on and got for it!!


There're so many of us here who have been trying for so many times. Remember: PERSISTENCE is the KEY to SUCCESS (in life, not only applying job as an FA with SIA)


So far, only 2 forumers who made it and gg for medical soon. CONGRATS to you gals! :)


Well... for those who failed at their 1st round, here are some issues that I can think of why one failed:

1. you're still under the ban period (No point trying... but of coz, there're cases of one in a million.)

2. Qualification. (Needless to elaborate more on this, there're so many threads discussing abt this 1,even tho the girls from Adecco might juz let u thru to the waiting room)
3. As for the other factors such as: how u present ur self-intro, how u handle qns that the panel judges posted to you, body languages, presentation/public speaking skill (remember: dun only stare at the interviewers, DO acknowledge the existence of the otha fellow candidates, DUN stereotype… the interviewers had heard enuf of those, etc) -> No-one know urself better than any1 else. So, the only advice I can say here is "Practices make perfect"

4. As can be seen that different interviewers have different way of judging the potential candidates… I can’t say much here as it’s subjective… (One man’s meat is anotha’s poison)
Remember: Stay and be +ve, by doing so... u've won half of the battle already. 8-)
I know it's easier said that done, but you're the master of ur mind&brain. So, do your job and control them.

5. Hm…. Can’t think of anything else leh… Any1 care to add on?


Personally, I think round 1 is the most crucial one. As long as you’re given a chance to get thru round 1, you stand a chance (tho there’re still a few more rounds to go)

I totally have no idea abt discrimination for those multi-tryers thingy…. I’m speaking from my personal experience, I was asked exactly how many times I’ve tried (during my 1-to-1 interview)…. I told the interviewer.. I’m so sorry as I can’t recall coz I’ve tried too many times… he said “ No, you gotta tell me how many times… or at least, how many attempts in this hotel (Sheraton walk-in) “
I’ve no choice but to use my agaration to give him a number (he noted that down and I saw him writing some sentences… --> I’ve no idea whether this is good or bad!) But most importantly, he passed my 1-to-1. I really thank him for giving me the opportunity to proceed to the mgmt round (actually I saw him shook his head when he passed my piece of application form to the lady at the counter in front… I thot… there goes my chance again.. -__-“ )

Well… well… I see what I can contribute based on my personal experience and hopefully it’ll be useful for all the forumers.

Rescue will definitely come to the titanic soon~
Keep Sailing…. DUN EVA GIVE UP!!! :D

keep on trying! first few times maybe you cant take the rejection and feel very demoralised but once you get passed that, you will treat the whole process like a norm. That might be the time when you really perform and show the confidence and you might just get in!

too many 'what ifs', 'however', 'should i?' in this forum. i say JUST DO IT! Why do you need someone to tell you to go and try out then you feel better and decided to try again? If you need people to tell you positive things ALL the time, then think again because being a flight stewardess you have to be independent! Imagine you meet a not-so-nice crew who puts you down throughout the whole flight, then you gonna quit once you touched down just because she demoralised you??

no one can help you except yourself. this is just so much we can say but we cant go for the interview for you. You have to depend on yourself. :wink:

I have to say that we shouldn't also just blindly go for attempts. Each time you fail you should ask yourself why and how to improve for the next time, instead of blindly just going to 'try your luck'. each attempt is precious so do make the best out of it! :wink:
