mintia wrote:Hey all,

I was in Group 5 for the females, and our panel was B (1 male/1 female) and male was the one asking questions.

He seemed quite friendly, not too stuck up or moody.

Our round 1 was considered easy to other 'questions' they sometimes pose to us- "tell us about yourself and why you wish to be a cabin crew."

Ah well... getting through Round 1 is just like extending the agony by 15mins more for the kebaya round :lol:

That lady was very nice actually - who took our height and announced the resuts (though poor her was running around, very flustered) and yes, she kept mentioning "those of you who don't make it, try again for our walk in next month"

So I don't quite get it... if you're not hiring due to economic issues - then why still have recruitment drives?


*Hmmm... no news from Zandlelight yet -hope he made it!



Hello mintia. Hmm sad new for me, i got booted at round one. Did you see me. I was with Tink_15 all the way.. My group only the guy called russel got in and i think there was a 8 guys in my group. One of them is a tiger airways crew at the moment as well but he did not get in.. Strange...
How did you go....

hello zandlelightz!
Are you the one who sat beside tink_15, the indian guy? I am the one who tink_15 commented that I had the same bag as her. :D

I got booted out during round 1 as well.

Congrats KimberlyGin! Is this your 1st try?

Recessions don't mean that people won't leave, get sacked or become to ill to work. In addition some may find other jobs within the organization retire or have completed contracts. Those who are lucky will have married a rich man - guess that excludes me. :P :lol:

My question was something like, "Other than serving food and drinks, what should a CC do?" Something like that.

I should have talked about ensuring passengers' safety but I went to talk about something else. lol. stupid me.

I will be trying again for the next walk-in.

Your first try? This is my 2nd try and oh crap, gotta try again :(

this could be my last attempt for SIA. Cant keep trying la when I need a permanent job ASAP!! Sigh...


which grp were u on? will u try again? i mean.....u gonna give up like taT???


i was in one of the earlier groups. i went in pretty quickly. im not saying i will just give up. honestly, i also have to be realistic. economy is not so good, and SIA is not hiring as much. So i cant keep hoping and trying until i get in. I dont have that much time to keep trying..

I still have to earn some money you know cos i have been unemployed for awhile.

And lets face it, some of us may never get what we want. Call it being pessimistic. But to me, I guess I am just being realistic..


AZ, which group were u in? cos they were 2 gals in my group who got in who were rather soft spoken also..

i guess you really don't know what they are looking for. It also depends on the interviewers/assessors, their taste, preference et cetera.
good luck to everyone for Jan 17th interview!!!

hey mintia! what did u mean by u didnt get true cause u were supposed to be under a ban? omg i think i fell under that as well, as my 1st attempt i went all the way to the management round in the last walk in and didnt make it true this time in the second round. But the matter is, i wasent told anything?

Im not sad at all really cause the way i went out was preety amazing. And here the story goes. I was in the 1st group, im the punjabi the guy wearing white shirt and had a sling bag. So in the 1st round only 2 was picked. Me and another guy.

So my second round goes like this, did a cat walk 2wards the interviewer ;) and had to answer her questions. So 1st question was, is this your 1st attempt? i said no this is my second attempt. Second question was, so how far did u go in your 1st attempt? I said i went all the way to the management round. 3rd question was so how was the experience? I said it was a great experience for me in my 1st attempt and im now im even more determined to do even better. She said ok thank you thats all. And i didnt get choosen. So till the next time comes around, no harm trying again mahh ;) nothing beats experience!

I only have one problem, haihz so many preety girls, so little time. Hahahahha. Seriously going for this interview is like going for Miss World! Woohoo!!
I investigate things to complete my knowledge, my knowledge makes my thoughts sincere, therefore my heart is pure.

I'm the one wearing skirt with short hair. Before I went out I say good luck to my friend in ur group. :wink:
Some ppl watch things happen, some ppl let things happen, but I make things happen... The sky is my limit!
