So I reckon if I just mention it on the C.V. they wouldn't verify on that unless I personally highlight my interest in german language so as they will put me through the test and assign the suitability of a 'german speaking crew'


You should use this additional language proficiency to your advantage during your interview. Whether being a GQ crew or not, it comes later after your training.

But be advised that your international flying routes will be limited then, like other foreign language speaking and 345 crews. :?

i doubt so.. in recent interviews.. theres 20 sets of kebaya.

I took a size L .. and fyi .. a size L is US size 34 = UK size 6.


So your M might just be a L for SQ's kebaya.

=)


Hi Sherrielynn,

1st, congrats on getting into SQ! So when do you start training?

About the kebayas - I'm 165m and about 54kg (about a UK 10/12) and yes, I have to wear size L for the skirt. As for the top, I just find whatever that has 34" marked on it. I must say the tops come VERY SMALL!! I am nowhere 'blessed', am just average but found it hard to find a top that I could zip up. :mrgreen: So just a piece of advice - if you're about a size '34', don't wear push up bra on interview day ok?

Oh well, I'm a poor soul who failed management round in June and went for the write in on the 31st. Made it past round 1 with a huge sigh of relief but failed kebaya round (wonder why since I have passed it like 2 times before).

Guess we'll all just try again on the 23rd!

i am from indonesia
i have passed my interview in jakarta early of august.
all document and medical checkup are clear and no notification from SIA jakarta.
its 2 months already and a litlle bit weird coz till now i haven't been called ...
is there any chance that i am rejected ?


Wouldn't it be nice to call or email HR directly since I reckon neither of us are in that department?

The probably reason might be that they are still pending your work permit or even still processing it. :)

Both will be asking you questions about yourself based on the resume you sent, and how did you performed in your previous rounds.


Correction. They wouldn't be your so called spokesman or only from cabin crew services. The interviewers are from different departments of different ranks. :?

That I'm not sure but for mine, we were told by Ms Loy that they were our interviewers for that round.

This is based on my interview on 3rd Nov 08.

hi butterflygal, my sis is actually w SIA nw so i get all the info from her
,thr will b written test n presentation, but presentation is not
asking u to powerpoint or wat
is actually ur trainer will c hw u serve, they will put up scenerio for u
n u ve to answer them, they will also test hw the way u stand, walk , talk to passenger.

For safety training is q fun, i heard from my sis bt it, u will get to do a cpr
on a dummy, n ur trainer will then test u on hw u do cpr.
Every module u will meet with different trainers, so ve fun n pay attention in class, n rem nvr be late for classes coz SIA is v strict bt punctuality, if u r alys late for classes they penalised on u n u will get demerit points..

As for the roster thingy, its computer generated, coz my sis have check before w SIA management bt tt, u should SIA have over 7000 plus
crews, no one is so free to hlp the crews to plan roster as thr r so many
crews to plan for...

therefore the computer will do all the planning, ur friend is really lucky to get all the europe flights coz europe flight's allowances r v gd..
for eg:milan 6days, u will get back bt 1.2k...

cheers... :D

because for a 156, I seriously think you will have trouble touching it.

hi i'm 156 and went for the interview on the 15th. i managed to touch it so no worries. just tip toe! i'm not sure though if touching it matters enough if you are measured at 156. any insight on this?

Then I am sure it is not of a height of 210cm, maybe sia's taped at a lower height. cos I tried to touch 210cm and I had a real tough time, I'm standing at 159cm. Its good to hear that its not so high after all! :lol:

then how was your interview?
so they let you pass?

Hi everyone, sorry to bother once again. I've a big question to ask now...

Does anyone knows how long will SIA wait for you should you be accepted? I've heard that six months is quite a long time for them to hold on to the offer of employment, and may have to come back to try again when the date is nearer.

The problem is: I can only join in April next year. Am I encouraged to try for this 23rd walk-in interview? Or should I try again next year, but I'm just afraid that they won't be hiring that much anymore, thus their interviews will be less frequent.

Any advices? TIA! :)

jetset, the site states that those graduating by may 09 are eligible as well. so a month before shouldn't be much of a problem! :)
