i think as long as you meet the min requriements you will be invited for the interview.
the rest is just up to them...

come to think about it, why everyone here is in the afternoon slots where as i'm the 1st @ 9am ?

These are based on my gfs who made it and guy friend's gfs.
I kpo-ly asked them what they wore and most of them told me they wore
1. knee length dresses
2. office wear but till knee length
3. covered shoes
4. full face make up
5. little assessories ( because during the kebaya fitting/ skin check they will ask u to remove )

The other time I went for Silkair's interview, i wore a 1 piece dress. I like dresses frm Joop. They are having a sale now, you may wanna drop by and see.

its almost every girl's dream to be flying.
this one i aint' sure. based on me kpo-ly asking them again,
they told me different stories.

one told me her 1st round was a self introduction.
one told me her 1st was a Q&A section.
But I only know, friends from SATS told me, if its a self intro round,
limit your speech to 30secs only. Dont drag, they won't like it.

As for the Q&A it really depends on what they will ask.
1. Passenger on board drunk, wants more alcohol.
2. Economy class sees business class has paper.
3. Passenger requested for special food but was not taken care of.

I guess theres many senerios.
I used to get very stressed up. But i guess i've taken it easy. One thing my bf told me is to treat your interviewer as a friend but with respect. You will then calm yourself down and be able to answer them with confidence. haha

Reii - the thing is, theres so many to choose from, so many to wonder if the interviewers will like it or not. Maybe we should bring our wardrobe, and let them choose what they prefer.

With regards on the answers, they are
1. Inform passenger that you will be able to give him non alcoholic drink, if he insists on more, ask crew leader for instructions.
2. Business class pays the extra for services and stuff, you will try your best in getting that paper should anyone finishes reading.
3. Check with other cabin crew, if yet to take off, request for the meal.

My bf was telling me since its Halloween Night, why not wear a costume there ?
Not helpful.



so fan...
