Wow.. I feel you man.. So are you still trying for cabin crew now?MeganL wrote:Hi there. I KNOW your situation!! I was like you, got until Management round, that was my first time trying for CC(It was the Sep interview back then). Didn't even get to wear the kebaya yet then was booted out So disappointed, I was so near yet sooo far! Until today, Im still traumatised but it gets better with every try(of course the lesser tries the better :p , but somethings just arent within our control. Sigh)Pillowcase wrote:Hi all. Just some really bummed updates
(1) Mass Introduction
(2) Height & Cert Checks
(3) Skin Check
(4) 1-to-1 Interview
(5) Management Round
I failed at the management round. The topic was to discuss about the budget airlines in the market. My team got the NO, that budget airlines should stop continuing. My reading and introducing of my partner was fine.
Perhaps it's really just the debate round that we didn't really smile or something whilst discussing. It's my first time trying for CC and to fail at the end before trying on the kebaya is really traumatizing... Any tips from anybody for management round?
Anyway, my group's question back then was "Singapore is a gracious country. What are your views?" At that time I wasnt thinking too much and I gave an in-between answer(both agree and disagree). Learnt my mistake the hard way, which is to NEVER talk bad about Singapore, even though it may be the ugly truth. I mean, the Singapore Girl is a Singapore icon, so obviously SIA will discard potential people who might "defame" Singapore. Hence, always try to give politically right answers at whichever stages of the interview! My passage reading and impromptu introduction of my partner was fine, so Im very convinced about my grave mistake during the discussion that till now it's still taunting me
Oh, one more tip: please be 200% alert and listen out for instructions. This girl in my group flipped opened her passage reading card way before her turn to read(not supposed to) and was warned by one of the interviewers to flip it back. She apologised but ended up being sent home too, and we guessed we know why..
Thanks for reading my sad recount of the interview hope it helps in one way or another! All the best for all of the hopes and dreams here
But anyway, mine was to debate and I had to mention that budget airlines shouldn't be in the market. So... :/ So what if they asked "An apple a day keeps the doctor away?". I guess we would never know what an interviewer would expect.. Really, be it debate or discussion.. Oh well.
