More or less they have enough crew plus Trainees now to replace those who left since last year ( bearing in mind that it takes 3-4 months of lead time to fully train a crew) That explain why there are so many rejects now. Only the best will go through now. Bad timing, you guys miss the big boat...wait for the next round 7th July, the bonus payout day. They have already anticipated the high resignation rate and have already recruited 'spares' but if the amount of crew leaving after the bonus is too much then they will step up the intakes again. Good luck guys all the best ! :wink:

Wat Abercrombie means is tat the bonus payout day is 7 july...not recruitment on 7th July..

E.g. if they anticipate 1000 pple will leave after the bonus payday...they have more or less recruited 1000 new crews to replace the ones who have left. But if after the bonus payday, the actual current crew resign is like 3000...they will "up" their intakes again...


In short, we have really missed the big boat. Hope many will leave and the chance is here again :cool:

Well it makes good sense though... "only the best gets in now". So i hope 19th July interview would be better, much much much better, with more girls getting in successfully! ;)
You may not have the best, but you can make your best out of the it.

Hahaha... you manage to dig out such an old thread . Today I am not on duty, so miss the chance of seeing many pretty girls but were also being spared from the many curses ringing around STC. Visiting this forum always makes me wonder...why...People outside are always trying to get in but people inside just can't wait to get out....where's the logic... :shock: To stay in or out, I guess you have to get in first to find out. You will have to step on the shit first to find out how shitty it is or maybe its black gold that you have been stepping on ](*,) if 3000 crew or even 1000 were to quit then you guys better think twice or thrice, why do they want to leave if its really so good :???:

I guess no matter which airline it is...the cabin crew turnover is quite high.
Well tats life...When u dun possess sth, u will try to get it no matter what...But once u have it, u will take things for granted...
tat goes to how we treat pple ard us :(

Like what a fren told me....pple are dying to be cabin crews coze they want to travel ard..But once they alrdy are cabin crews, they complained tat they have travelled TOO much :???:

for today interview, mainly that's the reason?
That's what i heard from the lady.... :-| (more people = lesser chance)

Anyway i think the afternoon session was very bad,
seems like at least 80% per group got booted out during 1st round.

Abercrombie,
actually dont need to think so much. :o Its not only cabin crews that want to leave after they get their bonus. I think about 40% of working adults will think like that. Thats why there are still so many people like me & others who wants to leave their current job to join SIA. I guess that's just the cycle of the work industries...something like how the food chain works. :D Anyways...complains are ENDLESS problems. :cry: Even billionaire will still complain about not having enough money$$ :shock:
