I would be going for the interview too at 20 mar 10. But currently I am wearing braces and will only be removed this year june. So does that mean I can forget abt going for the interview?Cos I heard some of my friends from SIA saying that if u wear braces for the interview, U would sure be eliminated during the first round...??



Hi there, i'm on braces too and will only be removed by august. im still gg to try for the interview though just like you, i've heard that SIA will sure reject people with braces cos they had a bad history of people who did not manage to take out their braces "on time". anyw, they also felt that braces will affect the speech as we are supposed to be accessed on how we speak as well. but my take is, just give it a try. whether you got in or not, you'll still get to experience the interview to better prep you for the next one. all the best! :D

i was called down for the interview on friday (26 feb) at STC. i managed to pass all the rounds on that day and was told to wait for the email which will inform us the date for the last management round interview. do you guys have any idea how long after clearing the rounds will they conduct the management interview? and how long would they take to send that email? if one is unable to make it for the management interview, do they allow rescheduling? i'm asking because i'm supposed to be going to germany for a conference (for my current work) from 8th - 12th march and i'm now so worried that the management round might clash with my trip. please give me some advice! thank you so much!

i don't know if that day was considered crowded or not because it was my first time and i was the first girl in the first group so i couldn't really tell exactly how many groups there were. but some of the girls i met there shared with me that it was considered quite little, i.e. the candidates there.

the first round was the group interview, followed by some random questions whilst still in that group of ten.

we then proceeded to take our height and weight.

after that, we were led to a room for skin check.

and after clearing that, we had to play a memory game. right after that, it was a one-to-one interview.

and if you pass that one-to-one interview, it's the kebaya round and more skin checking.

then finally you will know if you made it to the management round. :)

crunkbabee wrote:Hello soul0708, thank you! too early for congrats still got the final round bt anyway i really really appreciate it!:) The questions that they gave were more or less expected. Service related questions/why you want to be a cabin crew etc. but the first round seemed abit different thn the usual. Instead of having to introduce/ans question given, we were required to just introduce ourselves. Following two questions that can have up to 2 hopefuls to 1 question each. So in total only 4 hopefuls can 'snatch' the question and answer it...

girlzz, im sorry to hear about your grandfather. Well its okay, if you helped ur grandfather today who knows the next one will deftly be urs to score... ;D
Looking on the bright side, you can always send in your application again or go for the walk in interview! Don't be disheartened and all the best! About 10 in total got listed for management round..Quite a number got booted out during the 10 to 2 and 1 to 1. We all have to fill in this medical form and were told to wait for their email for the management round date!


u mean they post questions and u girls hav to "snatch" to answer?

Went for the Penang interview and got booted out during skin check. But I don't have any scars or bad complexion. SOB.. And I actually got thru MAS's.. So I was pretty sure I will get thru skin check round! T-T

for skin check, they do look at your face and your lower arms. i don't know how stringent they really are on this but i can tell you that i don't have that perfect skin! i think they were looking more at the overall look.

soul0708 - yep that is right! and from wht i see those who got through the first round are those that 'snatched' the questions except for one girl. i believe it is cause she had braces on..so those with braces...just be mentally prepared. that doesnt mean u shouldnt give it a try, go and experience hw it is like to better prepare urself when ur braces are off :)

ilnew - hey ilnew! i am waiting for the management round tooo! are you one of those girls in the morning tht i saw? i saw one malay girl and one chinese girl 2 of you guys that got through. are you one of em? or you belong to the second batch? btw i have been reading some 100+ past threads..they may take up to 8 days to call you back for the management round!

kindaichi1234: hmm i heard it is not as crazy as walk ins.

Derenla & HENRYANG300:

I am currently on braces too. I went for the interview at STC last friday. But was booted out at the first round. Am wondering if its because of my braces. :(

Does anyone know of people who passed all the interviews with braces on?

Thanks in advance!

Are you the girl in the 1st round, in white blouse & skirt, with your hair down? I'm Wendy! I spoke with you on that day!

I think you should try calling SIA HR & check with them on the management date, since you have a valid reason. (:
