M, dun be too upset! Will u try again? Now that u have more or less learnt something? U r gd that u made it to the last interview? Did u attend the tea party?


Upset and probably sour initially. I was so near and yet so far but I guess it was a good learning experience. How was it like to be waiting for close to a month, and having to attend 3 mind bobbling interviews, and to be chopped at the last stage. :evil:

But thought it was good so I can concentrate on my banking career. I probably will try again but doubt so cause I'm already 26 this year. Wouldn't make sense for me to fly till 28/29.

Goodluck to all and silly, enjoy your training. :D

The interviews...

Postby Toori » Sun, 31 Jul 2005 9:48 pm

Hi,

As for SIA, i think i was really tense up (i was the 1st one) & didnt really put my self-intro across nicely.. & (frm my personal perspective) the grp of interviewers was kind of, hmm... looked "tough". They didnt even bother to have eye contact with you... That was a very different approach compare to the previous SIA interview i went thrgh. I guess luck do plays a part too. Well i believe that different interviewer do have different style, so i guess i couldnt blame on anything except myself, for not being able to do well :?

As for Emirates... Wow, if you've been to both, i believe you'll be able to tell the difference between the 2 airlines' interview style. They are really good at making you comfortable so as to allow you to bring out the best of urself. Only one interviewer to 10 candidates Vs (SIA) 3 interviewers to 10 candidates. What i could say is that the gentleman (VP), he is really professional.

Questions asked by Emirates are like "Imagine you are one of the representative of United Nations, what do you think are the problems that the world is facing now." Heard from other girls, previously asked questions are like "If Singapore were to have an integrated resort, what do you think the pros & cons would be?". Sounds like beauty pageant questions right?? Haha.. I was in cold sweat when prompted the question.. After which, i found out that the interviewer, during the first round, will be evaluating more on your body language.

Hope the infomation above helps & i'll be working hard for my next round. Cheers! :)

Oh ya, today i attended the briefing conducted by Emirates for shortlisted candidates. They really share alot of useful information, guiding us what to expected for the following interviews.

However, from the briefing, it seems like their interview process are alot lot more complex than SQ... Other than normal inteviews, you'll be given English test on your Vocabulary, Comprehension & Composition :o

Hi BenQ,

I believe there are no guys in today's briefing as the openings for this recruitment are open only for females.

Guys whom went yesterday basically just filled up the application form and submit their documents. Guess they're on the waiting list; should there be an opening for Flight Stewards :)

Thanks silly too, always keeping us positive. So gals, we got ONE more day of hope, hee... :lol:

Worse come to worse, we'll send in for next recruitment again, but guess we have to do it very very early the next round :)

Trust me on this. I received mine on a Thursday, to go for interview on a Sunday. I would really say watch out for tom, and only if dont receive tom, then maybe realistically, then really no hope for this round.

Hi all ,
Very interesting info posted here .
Juz wan to share wif everyone . Dun give up hope . Try your best and good luck .
I received an invitation for the interview for this Saturday 30/07/2005 at 10 40hrs . Timing kindda inconvenient as I need to rush off to work after the interview . On afternoon shift that day . Yikes !! Still thinking whether to go or not .
Anyway , kindda caught off guard . Sent in my application during the June advertisements . Thought my chances are over as the interviews were scheduled for 2nd & 3rd July . Didn't receive any invitations then . Thought have to apply again the next round . Sekali , last week , was surprised to find the invitation for this week in my e-mail . Haha ! Suspect I'll be joining the group of Malaysian applicants as SQ had a Malaysian recruitment recently .
So I think SQ can just bomb U with an invitation anytime as they carry out interviews all the time due to the recruitment for different nationalities . Or maybe they couldn't find the ideal people they are looking for in the initial interviews , so they decided to extend their 'search' to those who haven't been invited .
Whatever the case , I wish goodluck and all the best to everyone who's trying out for the job or intending to try for it . May U snag the job of our dreams .
P/s : Dun think I'll get far in the interviews lah . Small panda eyes , big sized , too old , yucky skin , can't talk , don't know how to dress properly ....etc....Hahaha ! But juz for the experience . If can get through , means the pigs can fly . But at least next time when I'm old and looking back , don't need to say "I wish I had tried."
Once again , GOODLUCK to all !!
Cheers!


Too old? How old are you? :)

26 years old


hi Rosey,

26 is not old... =) there girls who are 26,27,28,29 who are recruited by SIA as trainees, so u are not old. don't worry, as long as u are under 30, u still can apply to be a stewardess. :)


Yea man.. im 27 already and im still trying... hahaha

How .....?

Postby Rosey » Mon, 01 Aug 2005 5:37 pm

Hello all ,
Anyone can tell me what to say during the first round of interviews that can impress the 3 interviewers so that I can pass through to the 2nd round ?? Seems like they got 3 non-cabin crew to conduct the interviews this round . (They look like they work in the office type) Yup , they got poker face (no expression) and don't seem interested or talk much . So sad . My group only 1 got through to the second round . They asked us to say something interesting about ourselves , our hobbies etc but they don't want to hear things like itz our childhood dream to be a Singapore Girl as it bores them . Quite mean rite ? What do they exactly want to hear ? Anyone who got through , or any existing cabin crew please advice . Thank U .
:shock:

Interesting fact is they are not making eye contact with you when you speak I reckon? There isn't much tip in this round. Just be yourself, commit yourself when speaking and attempt to make eye contact with them. Try not to drag your conversation for too long as they have heard introductions, favourite tele programs and etc thousand and one time. When you're done, maintain interest when the rest are speaking. It helps. :roll: :roll: :roll:
