Haha. I don't mind meeting up, since a many folks here actually do meet up in real life during interviews/trainings. But I'll reach suntec quite early on the 12th eh, like 7.30 (is it too "kua zhang"?)

Hey, get other girls to meet ba, it'll calm your nerves. I'm too tall (182 cm..) scared I'll intimidate you. :P

12th Dec Walk In! :)))

Postby crunkbabee » Mon, 30 Nov 2009 5:08 pm

Hi guys! I found out recently about the walk-in that is happening on the 12th of Dec and I am very much interested to give it a try for the first time!

A simple question, I will be finishing my diploma in Feb 2010..will they accept me? I've got the mininum requirements of a 5 'O' levl credits with a B3 in english though, do you think I'll stand a good chance in not getting booted out? *worried*

Is anybody going as well and needs company? add me up at sadrinakhan@hotmail.com

Sadrina, I think it is possible for you to head for the interview. According to past SIA recruitment notices, the notification period allowed (ie: in the process of completing NS/studies) is about 3-4 months. That being said, their criteria is ever-changing, so don't take it too hard if you get booted because of you not graduating in time.

And as for B3 in English, I guess it should suffice (actually it's not bad.) Might I ask, diploma in what field though?

I saw these two girls at the height measurement round during the January walk-in interview. From what I have seen, it was quite obvious that they did not meet the height requirement of 158cm. However, they tied their hair up, with a high 'hump' on their heads, the guy who was supposed to help them to measure their height did not want to destroy their 'humps' by pressing the 'ruler' on their head to measure their heights accurately. And thus he asked them to try to reach for the tape on the wall instead.

In the end, they passed the height measurement round. Haha it's all about tactics....

Hey i wore headband during the height measurement. Haha i think i gained abt 0.5 cm in the process. The lady did attempt to press down the "ruler" on my head but she did it lightly. U might want to try that :)

height is never an issue for the company.

those whom are slightly shorter will stand on the seat rest area to close the overhead compartments onboard. having a doubt is fine but do not let your doubt obstruct the process of achieving your dream. :cool:

Jeezuz H F*cking Christ, ladies!.... have any of you actually flown on an SQ flight... you know... sit in a seat and get served by an SQ lady???? Have you?

I've seen all sorts of SQ ladies... from damn near knock out, make your eyes water babes, to lovely average women with excellent charm.

What they all have is CONFIDENCE... they carry themselves... it's not about a bit of hips... it's not about a bit of hair... or a scar... it is about confidence in themselves...

So, stop this silly crap... give it a shot or give up... these dumb ass questions are just that... so dumb ass... if you don't have the confidence to go in and give it a try you won't make it anyway.

And if you do have the confidence it won't matter one bit that your ass is allegedly beyond some stupid SQ parameter.

Hello? Want to fly? Then fly as a passenger first... at least... and understand.

I very much agree with STRONG EAGLE u guys, or girls for that matter. Everyone's got flaws, strengths and weaknesses. Now, we gotto make sure it doesn't hinder us.
To all going for the walk-in, we will all try our best and learn from the experience.

Now, anyone wanna go with me? :lol: :wave:
