Hi guys. Once again, this is a shout out to all trainees starting on the 23rd of june. Do send me a PM to find out how to join the facebook group. We currently have 9 members, so we all are familiar with almost half our batch already.
We are very interested to know who the other half are :)

Hope to see you all soon!

hi guys,
(for those who are/have started training, congrats!)

mind to share what are the do's and don'ts especially for the 1-1 interview and the management round? i got booted in the 1-1 interview before and am like darn dissapointed with myself for that.

also would you guys mind sharing how's the crowd for the ipoh walk in's like? still jam packed with people like the singapore and kl ones?

much thanks and regard,
kelvin :)

hi guys, 1 more questions,

anyone know what would be a proper way to answers the situational questions?

so far i know there's one about a customer ordering cappucino and eflll asleep, what do you do

a guy needing to go toilet badly but the plane is landing thus toilets are inaccessible

and the one about a guy that is sick and is asleep with headphones on, what would you do as the plane is landing and he needs to take them off or something


really appreciate your views here!


much thanks and regards,
kelvin

If you have to ask about how to answer situational questions then you have already demonstrated a lack of ability to handle the situations that the questions are designed to illuminate.

The entire point is to understand what YOU would do; that you would ask others suggests that you are not actually prepared for CC responsibilities.

I sort of agree with the previous comment. However, what i would suggest is that you answer the question truthfully and not seek a model answer. You will be trained for such situations if you get selected. You should be more focused on the way you answer the question.

You should answer the question confidently, and speak clearly and eloquently. And most importantly, remember to smile. There's no point giving a superb answer while looking uninterested or too serious.

Smile! It works.

hi kelvin, during my 1 to 1 i realise that the proper way to answering these questions is to put the passenger's interest and ensure a standard of service at all time. this is crucial as it portrays how ideal you are in handling situations that contributes to being a good cabin crew.

for example, if you've made cappuccino and the passenger is asleep, its only right that you don't leave it there because 1) it might spill 2)it wouldnt be as refreshing as its supposed to be. so what you should do is to take it back in, do your duty and constantly check on the passenger whtr he/she is awake and offer to make another one the moment he/she wakes up. just relax and analyse the question but of course, dont take tooo longgg.

just my two cents worth, hope it helps :))

Strong eagle: I would try to defend myself (actually i was typing it out) but i must admit you have your point and it did struck a chord in my mind, so i must thank you for that.

flumpet: Thanks man, will take the tips heads up. :) Hope I can train myself up to be a person of SIA's criteria's caliber.

crunkbabee: indeed much thanks for the advice! appreciate the help alot, and especially appreciate your insight and explanation in the question!

I have a feeling this would be the last interview for 2010. The reason is that during my last interview on 8th May, I had a friend who got through the interview, but was told to go home because she was only available after September.
Therefore, I think for those of you who are going to try, you should really do your best because you will not know when the next interview will be, if there is one in the first place.

Good Luck!

flumpet: got through the interview but told to go home meaning she passed the medical everything? or just the first few rounds?
