hmm..regarding wearing jeans, did u act know someone who wore jeans and got in or did u hear someone claim she got in even though she's in jeans? wad i know is that the recruiter told the guy next to me dont wear jeans while we were all waiting for our management round. thereafter, i din see the guy in SIA training centre anymore.

basically if i dont remember wrongly, alight at tanah merah mrt station, exit B i think. take bus 24 and alight at "Changi court" (it's the bus stop description). i dont know how many stops since i drive to training everyday since i stay very far away from the east. if you not too sure, just ask uncle. unless you are gg very early in the morning, then u will see other trainees on bus 24....just drop off with them. hope this helps =)

Recruitment is going to be very minimum now as we are expecting to be hit by the economy downturn. With the large intake since the start of the year, there were enough crew operating the flights for now. The problem of this expansion is that it coincide with the economy crisis. To tackle that, flights are going to be cut and it will result in excess crew. Retrenchment is not out of the equation. For those going for the interview, do prepare yourself and do your best, its not going to be ease to get in now and there will be very few in takes in the coming months :(

Re: age limit

strictly-vintage wrote:hey guys,

in regards to the age limit for SIA, ( info. from a current crew friend of mine ) the cut off age for girls would be 27. however, if one posesses the qualities that the interviewers are looking for - they would still accept applicants as old as 30. no more than 30 for girls definitely, as for the guys, they have no stated age limit. males in the cabin crew sector could serve SIA till they receive the golden handshake (which is at 65). as for the ladies, 45 would be the maximum age. if female crew still wish to continue their career path with SIA, they could continue with a ground position. to be a trainer, they must however posess a university degree.

i hope this info helps.


There is not age limit for guys but you don't see guys getting in after 30yrs old. 1st hurdler is at 45yyrs old, you have to get approval by the management to continue your service with the company. This is usually no problem unless you have a very bad service record then you will not be able to get the extension. Next hurdler is at 55yrs old, you will have to go thru an interview for an extension of 2 yrs. Again your service record will be check. High chance of you not getting the extension here. At 57yrs old there will be 2 yearly extension. At 59yrs old you will be out of a job. For the ladies, the company does not provide you a job after you are 45yrs. You will have to look for a job by yourself, even within the company. Hope that help.

Hmm that makes sense. With the economic situation as such, wonder why there are holding another write-in for 31st oct. so soon after the 15th oct interview.

A chief steward or chief stewardess can earn up to S$6,000 or $7,000 a month.

Wearing a dress is more lady-like and I am sure my ex-colleagues the interviewers would love it :D
