Since i have been visiting this forum every now and then, i think i should post my ecperience here.

Round 1: Self-intro. I got the question: What's your favourite sports? I guess my question was relatively essy as compared to the questions mentioned above.

Round 2: Skin check, cert check. There will be two small spotlights hanging above you but dont worry, just keep smiling and interact with the interviewer.

Round 3: 1 on 1. Passage reading and once again, just be yourself and interact with the interview. Keep smiling!!! :)

Round 4 (management round): Held at STC. I think i gave the wrong explanation when the interviewer asked about the core values of SIA. Oh well.....

I think the rounds are rather easy. Just be yourself really. Cant wait for the next one to come. :)


Hi. Anyway I can contact you? Need to enquire with you about something just that I don't have enough post to pm you.

I also went for the 7 Jan Interview and was booted out in final round interview too .

The final interview was very tiring and taxing .
(1) They called you in a Group of 6 based on the application form submitted . Then they will bring you to a room and ask you to wait there . But do not just wait , ask your group member for more information and memorize all their names and etc ( especially the names mentioned before and after you , as they most likely will be your partner )
(2) When you go in , they ask you to introduce you partner , so this have to depend on how much info you have dig from your partner ( again it depend on your luck on who your partner is ) .If he/she never mention much , it will make you sound boring when u intro them .
(3) They ask about current affair and how you feel . Then, they ask another general question ( what is you fav colour and why ?)
(4) Passage ( I was stupid as I paused at the words I do not know how to pronounce and my group told me that they skip the words they do not know and they get in ) . So for the reading , also do not be too honest , as honest bring you no where . Basically , the interviewer did not memorize the passage , just wan to listen to how your pronounce and the flow of it .

*just my 2 cent worth of point :)

Judging from what you guys have shared, I supposed just confidence and smile wouldn't do the trick? :(

Hi I'm from the 3rd December interview intake and have successfully gone through all the interviews and will be commencing training next week.

Just my two cent opinion. I strongly discourage you to look for the exact scripts or model answers to the interviewer questions. They are looking for personality throughout the entire process and not looking for Mr or Miss Know-It-All. Obviously I've seen a lot of candidates interviewing with me giving the most perfect answers but they either sound very rehearsed or they look like something is in their mind (trying to remember what they memorize). And it is no surprise they didn't get through because in the midst of giving the best answers, they fall short in their personality. The interviewers are experts and trust me they have gone through the process so many times to know who is being real and who is just giving them answers from a script. So just do some research on the different questions they may ask and have a rough idea how you will like to answer them to make your personality shines.

Hope that helps and hope to see you onboard! :)

To wyattboy: Sure why not? :) Below is my script,

Good afternoon everyone, my name is XXX and I'm turning 21 this year. I played sports like swimming and volleyball. And I was part of the school volleyball team back in my school days. So I can say that both swimming and volleyball are my favourite sports. *smiles*

But I do agree with w0hmissy, the interviewers are really looking for personality so just be yourself. :)
