Tori wrote:Hi,

Congrats to ur invitation :D

So Singaporeans do have the opportunity this round too, but dun know if it'll ever reach me...

Btw, I think yes, they'll kind of lower ur height abt 1 to 3 cm, cause the other time, my height was lowered by 2cm... Then Kebaya check, lowered by 3 cm!

Anyway, they'll most likely let you go ahead with all the interviews if u're 1.58 (+/-). Unless, u're really way off... :wink:

So does it mean anyone having height between 158 to 160 will definitely get kick out after the measurement??? :shock:

Don't worry too much. Try again at the next round, if it's not meant to be, just look around for another job opening :)

Hi All,
after seeing all your posts. I don't dee the need to depsair cos if you guys try hard enough, you will dfinitely get into SQ. By the way, I can see that SQ is in need of crew considering that they are expanding their services and with the acqusition of the new A380s. Just a thought from a business perspective. Anyways, all the best to you guys and I hope that I will get the invite soon.
Oh..... I also wished that they had the walk in interviews cos that would allow them to see you as yourself rather than from the contemporary email applications.
Would you guys agree?

Hiya Sabrina! take up smthing which u're really interested in. :) Otherwise your 3 years of poly's gonna be a drag!! They do accept poly grads but not from private institutions i tink. A couple of my frns from banking n finance were selected for cabin crew posts at my time. They were freshies than.. no wkg exp at all. As long as you meet all the criteria listed on their website, i dont see any problem with you getting the job. Hope this helps!

I agree with you Angelynn_belle, cause I had experience before for the intake last year April I think? I was actually shortlisted, when I went there, they measured my height, and it was 156cm and the lady ask me to leave on the spot.. :cry:
