woah thanks so much for the info :)
do you all know roughly how is the advancement like? like roughly how many yrs of experience do you need before getting a promotion? is it possible to opt for ground work after flying for a few yrs? cos it seems rather tough for ex-cabin crew to find a job after they decided to stop flying.

Make that double, flumpet. I was called up for several follow-up check ups with expensive specialists. Submitted my last specialist's letter last Friday so hoping to get the call this week. You wrote how long notice period? Mine's like 1 month, but I can start earlier. ;)

The wait is a killer.

Derenla, personally I ORD-ed last September and am currently working full-time. On the note of waiting for the call, I think it's because we came this far after all the rounds of interview, and want it too badly, even waiting for that one day (or even few hours) for the call will make us cranky.

any malaysian applicant here?

i went for walked in interview in KL on March 27, they called up on one month later. saying that my work pass application was being rejected by MOM.
i have finished my study on end of april and SIA asked me to wait for my degree then can reapply the work pass. I submitted my STPM qualification though.

it's quite worrying as my friend applied using his SPM qualification, he already start his training on May 17. :(

does SIA help us appeal for the work pass?
anyone got any idea?

Hi derenia,
I'm waiting for trainin to start..but i personally tink ex-cabin crew shldn hav prob finding jobs right..in fact i tink a lot of employers out there wld wan to employ becoz of their customer service background and the trainin tht they go thru plus the prestigious SIA company in their resume..hmm at least thts wad i always tht..any comments anyone? Seniors 2 cents worth?
