Sadly, I didn't get pass the first round... will just have to try again the next time round.

To those asking bout how they measure height: It depends on the person taking your measurement. Like i am 171cm, the lady measured me at 175cm..hahaha... i was like telling her.. oh no!!! cannot be!! i am 171!! she laughed and pass me at my original height of 171cm...hahaha... was afraid the interviewers will think i am too tall..hahaha

To those who asked how the interview went: Well, only one question was asked. "Tell us something about yourself." Out of my group of 10, 2 got in. Don't ask me how they select.. i was shocked myself.. one of the gals who got in actually was very nervous, had many pauses, stuttered alil and kept saying sorry for the way she was; her spoken english was not fluent also... Maybe the sorries helped, because she got thru to round 2. Totally no idea what they are looking for. So really, no point rehersing and such... just go there and talk.

Sooo.... when are they recruiting again!?!? I'll bombard them with my application again... hahaha.... :wink:


So u'll actually try again?



Yep! I don't see why not! because i am interested in customer service jobs also and am looking around for other related jobs too. As long as i am still qualified to apply for FA, I try. Won't want to regret not doing things later in life :wink:


Nice to hear that. Ur actually encouraging me to try again too lol. Well, I got kicked out from the 1-1 interview due to no preparation. Saw from this forum 1st round was only self-intro and will have to wait for result...Didn't expect to have 1-1... So didn't prepare.


Well for your information, there are about 7 rounds to go thru before landing the job.
- Group interview
- 1-1 interview
- psychometric test (personality)
- kebaya
- water confidence
- management interview
- tea-party
For more details, you can refer to much earlier posts of this thread.

So i dun exactly think you have to prepare anything but just be confident and be yourself. Stressing too much on yourslef might work otherwise... so why sweat!! haha... Let's just apply again and see what happens!
Cheerios!

Its tons of on flight questions which I never encounter before and not trained to do...As if im already an CA. Most prob my answers are up to her standard.

Nowaades, many big organisation are changing their style of interviews.. traditional type VS behavioural type..

Traditional: How will u handle this and that.. ?how well do u work as a team?

Behavioural: Describle a situation on which you found that your performance was not up to standard. how could this situation have been avoided? if it happens again, how will u handle it?

Hope the above-mentioned help, in any case, juz be preapred for all kinds of qns!

Cheers!

Please share the info wth me whn u have gone thru second round...thanks...by the way, how many people were you interviewed by? man or woman? cheers!!! :lol:


Hi aloyscious,

Total number of canidates unknown. For 1st day, there were 2 rounds which involved the basic 10 in a group talk/introduction and 1-1 interview for latter stage. As for day 1, just be composed and observe your fellow canidates when they talk, that's a MUST. Reason why, the interviewers weren't making eye contact with me when I was speaking but instead observing the rest of them. By all means, please judge per situation as you will get different interviwers. 1-1 interview was conducted by a very nice lady and basic question like; "Why do you want to be a cabin crew?" was posed. Nothing much in this round but just be confident.

2nd round is scheduled for this Wednesday. Routines unknown but I just heard that's da D day. Written best to of my knowledge though I want to know more about 2nd day.

Regards, :lol:


M,

Which room did u went into for 1-1 interview??
The interviewer ask me :-
1. Tell me about ur life, hobby, family, friends., jobs..
2. Have u ever encounter any difficult customer
And then, she shoot ->
3. If ur superior crew ask u to serve 1 item lesser to customer, what will u do?
4. If 2 passengers quarrel on the flight, what will you do?
5. If you were to choose a country, which country u wish to travel to most?
6. Do u have any friends working here?

Instead, she did not even ask me Y i want to be a CA...

And there I go,not receiving any form. Got kicked out of 2nd round.


Hi,

I was in room 5. Really nice lady though I reckon you were too nervous during the 1-1 session? The questions you posted look reasonable enough for me though. Don't give up. Learn from this experience and prepare for the next. But remember, keep preparations moderate. Goodluck! :D

culture of cabin crew

Postby flown » Tue, 05 Jul 2005 3:42 am

Message to all of those who just joined or planning to be part of SIA cabin crew…

I’ve read some rather disturbing postings concerning public opinion towards SIA cabin crew.
1st of all, regarding the senior-junior culture in cabin crew. To begin with, SIA culture is built upon our very own Asian culture whereby seniors are accorded more respect. Although it is my opinion that it is an Asian culture, some people may view it as a military culture. I would like to justify complaints that some “newbie’s”

Hi Blur,

If you're referring to me, the main question posed to me was; "Why do you want to be a Air Steward?" She also did ask me about my previous job placements and why the switch of industry to begin with.

Were you on Sat or Sun to begin with? :?:

Only backstroke is allowed. This is due to the lifevest you'll be wearing -- it doesnt allow for other styles. Cheers!
