Lemmi re-quote again. Do you know what it takes to be a qualified cabin crew beside passing the interview process? :roll:


No.. but that was in my rd 4 interview.. i just said.. i dont know how much is it really to be a cabin crew.. but i believe im here today becos i met the basic pre requisites of your previous 3 rounds of stringent interviews. i know i am not up there yet to the standards of SIA.. but i believe i will be there after your 4 mths of trng, moulding and grooming..

i just feel that, If you dont believe in yourself at 1st.. no one else will belive in you also.. at least that is how i walk my talk.. and that is my view to my life.. and that sentence helped me stabalized my thoughts, and feelings during the whole 4 rounds of interview and helped me with my confidence..

I apologise if what i said is against your thoughts and conflict with you ideas and feelings.. but i think everyone is jsut different and we have different conflicting point of views probably.. No hard feelings..

When are going for the management interview... I think one should already know what it takes to be a cabin crew. I think they expect applicants to know about the job they are applying for!

You will be surprised. Not every job description can be written down in black and white. Furthermore, with the number of repetitive questions posed in here, I would reckon some applicants wouldn't know what cabin crew is all about except donning the kebaya.

Of course, not everyone is born to be a cabin crew and nothing glamorous about the job. I just want to emphasize that a lot of effort is needed to don on that kebaya, beside passing the interview.

Even if you possess the looks, abilities to pass the interviews but wrong mentalities and attitude regarding the job, you will hit a stumbling block in time to come. :cool:

Eh what? SIA recruits m'sian and hkg girls as well, of cuz. Don't know where you get that notion from.

I'm afraid only SIA can answer your question with any certainty. Best to call them yourself and find out.

At the moment, only the cargo pilots are offered no pay leave, and only on a voluntary basis. The main fleet and silkair are doing better than cargo.

However, I've heard rumours that the very junior among the junior crew have been given no pay leave. Can't confirm as I haven't met any one in that situation.

I know some girls who have plenty of standbys in their rosters though, while others have full rosters. It's not very evenly spread out.
