Anyway, I've added you in msn.
Hope you'll approve my invitaton.

Yours Sincerely,
Michelle :D

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. :)

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. :)



I didnt really tackle any questions.
And questions they asked me might not appear for you. Sometimes they take a look at the whole group thats going for the self introduction and they they come out with a question which is fair for majority.
So its really all by luck.
And I just answered them very truthfully. Of cuz I did my own homework here in the forum. As what others say in the previous pages of this thread, we are all not spoon fed, so you gotta go read up the previous pages cuz its all inside the thread itself.

And to be very honest, I started reading this thread right after I got my invitation thru email. Its 1k over pages though. I didn't read up everything, but i managed to go thru half of this thread. And most answers you wanna know, is really all inside.

=)
Just be yourself. Everyone will be nervous when they go for such interviews, including myself. It depends on how much you want this job and how determined you want it. If it really shows in you, they will be able to see.

Good luck !

I think this is the most important of all..Being yourself portrays your true image.They can tell if you are trying to be someone else so it's not much of a use trying to "mimic."

Hi, sometimes I feel being your true self might not be the ideal self too as you might have the tendency to be too relax or casual.

I guess I was one on my last interview and was booted out in the 1 to 1 round. I was really feeling like I was talking to a friend, rather than an interviewer to keep my nervousness down but in the end, I wasn't too mindful of my gestures and body language, and spoke too truthfully about how I was amazed to be in this 3rd round as I didn't answered the question the way I would have intended in the 1st round. The interviewer immediately said: 'That shows you have not much confidence' And from this, I know I have just killed myself.

Just my two cents worth. Never say anything that would undermine your ability.

sorry to interrupt.
jus my opinion, i guess interviewers look at the way u protray yourself.

i believe 99% of those who are there, are nervous. so its your ability to speak proper english, and most importantly show interest and don't forget our manners. Be humble and smile!
look thru the threads and find out the interview sequences and what to expect.
common questions for 1st round are normally self introduction, a movie that u've watched, why do u wanna come, what fruit to describe SG, etc etc etc. there're MANY that they can ask. take a deap breathe, slow and steady.
They KNOW what the model answers are. they've handled so many interviews. so, dun worry, if its a model answer, so be it. its an interview!

have enough sleep! =)

whether or not u tie or hair up, let it down or bun it, it doesnt matter. as long as u look good and neat.

best of luck to all going for interviews! cheers.
the world at your doorstep.

Look babe/bro,being yourself is celebrating you, as an individual.It is about learning to express yourself and be happy with who you are. For some people, it's learning to love yourself, for others, it's not hiding who you are or changing things about you to fit in.Be honest and open,relax and stop worrying about the worst that could happen especially in social situations. :)

Hello,
I have a question here. I have a visible scar on my forehead but my fringe is able to hide it. Do you guys think the interviewer will penalized me on that?

How big is your scar?Also, when you say that it can be covered by your fringe,does it really cover 100% of it? :?

Thank you for replying (:

The length of my scar is probably about 2cm. Because it is on the right side of my forehead and my fringe can definitely cover it. I understand that when they do a skin check, we will be ask to lift up our fringe, that is the part which I am worried about.

Well,I don't think that it should be that big of a problem but you should try to conceal it to play safe.As long as the scar's visibility is hidden most of the time,it should be okay.

Thanks for your advice, I have indeed reflect upon my mistakes and trying my best to learn from it. It is a valuable experience after all. I will have to be mindful of being humble, courteous and confident at the same time. I hope I will do well this time, I really want this and I feel it is for me.

One question, should I declare that I have tried for cabin crew position on 31st October on my application form? The last portion did have a box, questioning if I have applied to any SIA companies/subsidaries, if so, state the date and position.

I think it is just pure honesty to declare. What do you guys think? Will they have a record on previous applicants? I heard they even have transcripts, and I wonder if its really true?
