Sherrielyn, if you don't mind, may I ask which interviewer you got on friday in your 3rd round? Was it a lady who looks like in her 50s? Small eyes and of small stature?

How is medical like? Do you just go to Raffles Medical Centre anytime after the 3rd interview and have the results back in a few days? They only check spine and eye sight right?

Thanks so much dear, you are a great help! All the best sweets!

When you meant 3rd interview, does it mean right after the kebaya ? The 1 to 1 interview ?

If thats what you are saying, then i don't think so. She's very young, no specs but pettie in size.

On medical , we were told to head to Parkway health which is located in Pagagon. And it isn't after the 3rd interview. It was the 4th which was management where you will be interviewed by the spokesman of SIA and the VP for cabin crew services.. And based on what they say, it will take around 3 working days to be sent back to SIA and takes another 2 days before they will call and inform you to head back to sign your bond with a gurantor.

And we were told to give a urine sample, simple eye sight test, color test, height, weight and an xray of the lungs.


Oh I see, thanks for your elaborate input. Did you go down to Parkway Health right after the final round? i.e. the same day itself, since I supposed you will finish the 4th round quite early as it starts early in the morning. If that is the case, you should be expecting a call from them to sign the bond sometime on the 7th, friday or 10th, monday.

The bond is 2 years if I'm not wrong? Or has it changed to 6 months?

:)

Eh I dont think so. Doesn't really matter if you did your check up early in the mrng or not.
They will only send your results the very next day. So they will only call me, earliest monday.

i know the stewardess do most of the serving right?


Basically you still do the serving but primarily, you are needed mostly in the galley. You are still required to fulfill other duties too.

The galley is where you have to prepare for the meal service and this runs from A-Z. As for business class, the preparation is more tedious. 8-)

Slight correction.

Serving is part of the routine unless replenishment is needed so that is when you run between two aisles.

Usually there will be two stewards roster for a flight. One will usually work in Business Class while the other in Economy Class. Depending on the type of aircraft, girls are usually needed to perform galley duties and not only where there is a shortage of stewards. :?

That is correct but SIA has this ongoing culture which has been passed down from generation to generation so it's slightly different from other industries.

I know this because I've been through three. :)

I am a guy,28 this year...Age is catching up with me...Afraid that 2009 recruitment may halt,I may not make it into SIA before the age of 30....

I managed to get to the management interview in FEB this year afterwhich I stopped attending the walk ins after being booted out.Until recently,I started going to the write in OCT but was booted out at the first round.

Time is not enough for me!!!


I've known some cases but odds are low. :?

Share?

Postby hannna » Wed, 05 Nov 2008 7:29 am

Anyone wants to share a room at sheraton for sat nite (22nd nov)? I've checked rates and if there's four of us, one has to fork up about 85 bucks. If more people (maybe max 5 or 6?) then ofcos its lesser per pax. At least we wont have to rush for the morning interview and will be well rested to answer those notoriously hard questions and gruelling rounds. We can also help each other with makeup and practice answering those questions. Best part is, you wont have to go to the interview alone! :) email me fenixgyrl (at) hotmail if you are interested=))

Most FSS will assist the passengers with their hand luggage with the help of the passengers themselves.

Technically, both FS & FSS have different pre-boarding, after take off, meals and after landing duties. :)

Anyway, congrads to you! You go girl! (:

Yours Sincerely,

I made it thru and medical seems pretty ok oso.
So gotta wait for their call to go over again.

=)

2 interviewers,
one guy and one lady.
Guy's the spokesperson for SIA
Lady's the Director for CabinCrew Employment ( I think )

The guy's very friendly.
Lady pays alot of attention on you.

Questions asked were.

1. Did you meet up with nasty customers in your previous work, what did you do.
2. When you say the job's demanding, do you think you can handle the stress level ?
3. What is your hobby ?
4. Why only at the age of 24 did you try for SIA when you said its your passion ?
5. What kind of qualities should a cabin crew have ?
6. With the hetic work roster, you can't really have a proper rest, are you able to take it ?
7. Is this your 1st attempt
8. Are your parents supportive of you ?


I guessed I answered pretty nicely for question 3 because the guy got very interested when I told him I love to fish and to do prawning. lol.


Hi sherrielynn, I think you are on the way to SIA already. :)
Can you give some advice to people (like me :D ) who is going to try out this coming SIA walk-in? Thank you very much. :)
