are you a girl or boy? hmm if you are a girl, i guess you will be booted out in the skin check stage with the scars unless you are able to conceal those scars well (but i heard that some interviewers will actually rub onto your skin to see whether did you put concealer or not)

they will check your arms, face, and the back during the skin check stage. :)


am i right to say that since the kebaya can cover it should be ok??


hmm i guess it depends? some interviewers are stricter. :)

I'm a girl.. They check our backs?? How? By peeking down our shirts? So do they check the legs?

My third try. First one..managed go till 1-1, regret i didnt prepare well enough. 2nd try till final int, but the interviewer adviced me to complete my degree since I got one more year to go. It has been 3 years since the last interview... Completed my degree, on braces for 2 yrs already. Hope to be able to clear the interview this time.

Got degree still join cabin crew ? Its a waste of your time and money to get your degree. You should built up your career making full use of your degree. Many join to experience the life of Cabin crew, see the world etc.... thus not giving their best in their job as they are not fully committed, maybe that's why SIA drop so far from #1 spot.

Anyone know what are they looking for in the management round? Because we went in as 6 person, and only 1 got selected, and all 6 of us actually answered quite equally, with quite even standards, in terms of English proficiency and structuring our answer.
I thought all 6 of us would be picked in the end they only picked one, and the one being selected wasn't even the most impressive one among us 6.

We went trough the debate, and reading a given passage at that round.

* 1 more question, if i wrote that i would be available on June, does the late availability effects my chances being selected?



Availability date doesn't affect at all. I know of some who can only start during apr or june and they manage to get through. I feel that they are looking at our overall like personality, confidence level , posture ( the way we carry ourselves ) , the way we speak and keep smiling! and yes. look at them when u speak. Its normal to stammer though. :) Anyway to be dishearten by failure. I think of it that failure will be part of my success when i failed my 1-1 interview during the 3rd dec. Just try again! There will always be a chance if u are willing to try :) And a piece of gd news to share with u guys! Just received a call from Mary today :) Training will start on V-day. haha. FYI, I'm from the 7th interview batch. All the best to all who will be gg for the 11th feb interview!


congratz estelis, still waiting a call from marry or sheryn, =(


Thanks lulu :) Don't worry! I hv a friend who went through the interview with me hv yet to receive any calls as well. Stay positive! FYI, my friend underwent her med smoothly in which that she don't hv to undergo extra test unlike me ( i was scheduled for an ultrasound ) . So probably they are sorting things out. Give them a month :)


Yeah just met another friend, he said he got it ald too, hahaa... make me worries even more... yeah I think so too, btw last time they never ask me to stay for the briefing, they told me to straight go to med check and will let me knw asap.... yeah I think because shenton sent my report to SIA abit late- like last friday.... i still hope for the best! its killing me!! LOL, good luck with everything! and congrats! =)

hello estelish is your friend get any news ald frm SIA?


Hi lulu. Yea. She had already receive the call :) What about u? Any gd news yet?

aria- The training will be held at SIA Training centre during the 4 months of training( under grooming section ). Once u had passed through all the interviews and medical round and signed the contract to start work.

Me00w - There's actually 2 rounds of skin check. First day , there will be one skin check round where they will be checking your face ( including forehead ) . They will ask u to tilt ur head from right to left and check for any acne scar or any form of scars. Your neck and lower arms. If u pass the first day interview, u will move on to the second day interview that will be held at STC. The second skin check round will be during the kebaya round( provided that u pass through your management round ). U will be asked to bend forward with ur kebaya on to check ur back for acne. Face, neck and any areas that are exposed when u are wearing the kebaya. Legs will be lower knee level.

mframe- I believe they will go according to what u see on their website. The requirements level. They will be checking your cert during part of the interview. He can try his luck though.

All the best to anyone who is going! :D

I think it is worth it. To be able to travel n earn the $$ is one thing, but I'm passionate about the job.

Abercombie, are u a crew? I guess you are looking at your post and replies.
