Why like that...You can't get in then say they are not pretty and handsome. At least they get the job but not you :P

went for my 4th time today and didn't get past the 1st round :cry: They seemed to be very stringent today, with only 1 girl out of 10 getting through it. *sigh* I don't know if to try anymore... I don't know if it's because of the 'x number of months ban' I have on me since I failed @ the final management round in June.

Does anyone have a definate answer about this 'ban'?

strictly-vintage wrote:any good news for today? whats the passing rate like?


today was the first in a long time that i saw so few girls queueing for registration. i reached sheraton at 9am and by then there were quite a fair bit of girls, but after that, in the afternoon it just became lesser and lesser. it could be the rain that caused the turnout to be quite bad. nonetheless, the interview rounds were still as stringent as they have always known to be.

Rounds & Passing Rates:
1: 2/10
Qns asked: Self-introduction + What do you feel is good customer service

2:1/4
First time i managed to ACTUALLY find my size with all the kebaya still hanged neatly. Lady also asked me a qn: First time? Why do you want to be a cabin crew?
(Personally I feel that they want you to be as spontatenous as possible and to check on your teeth/smile while you speak. So smile nonstop during this round. It really did help.

3:1/1
I had a rather stern looking interviewer (which made me even more nervous). But after awhile, deeper into the interview,, we warmed up and everything went well.
Qn asked: Why do you want to switch your career?
Your job seems exciting, so what about your current job do you not like?
If you were to meet a tourist who is visiting Singapore for the first time, what are the top 3 places you will recommend and why.
Have you been discriminated before?
(Oh man, there were so many more, but I think I had a mind block and I forgot some, SORRY GUYS!)

4:So far I've observed almost all the girls that went, ALL made it through. I dont know about those that went after me. I would say 1/1.
However for the guys, it was 1/2. Tough luck.
Qn asked: What are my job scopes like with my current job?
Why do I want to seek a job in the customer service line?
Do I do housework at home?
When was the happiest time of my life?
Does my family know that I am seeking a job as a cabin crew?
How do they feel about that?
What happens if I have to be away and miss out on celebrating important festivals with my family?
(Again, there were many more, but I cant think of any prominient ones now) :???:

I am sure you guys have had posts like this from way before, so I hope my post will be the most updated one. I hope it helps for the next try!
Also, for those who didnt make it through, (I know you have heard this a million times) but you should take this as a learning path to improve on what you did, and what you can do better. I only got in after my 5th try. So if anyone wants to complain about rejection, that would have to be me. :oops:

Cheers to those who made it , and persevere to those who will make it someday! :)

Don't get too down, being cabin crew often turns out so different from what people expect. Besides there are lots of other jobs associated with airlines that can be just as if not more rewarding but will take longer to be so. :)

By any chance, anyone here knows that SQ will blacklist people? Cos is my 2nd time to the interview & saw my application form is extracted & place at 1 corner on the desk when I walked into the room.

Should they inform you at the queue that you're ban to attend the interview cos if so then is a waste of my time to keep trying when there's no chance at all.

Why would we care if the girls taking height are pretty or not? lol... anyway... maybe you could try for airlines which only require a reach test :)
