hey dun despair about the Emirates one. Its their loss. Well, just off the record, people like us with the passion will definitely get in because of our perseverance and passion for the job.

Anyways, what I know from internal gossips is that SQ is indeed looking for guys as they are really short of GS (Galley Stewards). The guys inside are already maxed in their flight rosters and are mostly doing the long haul flights. Getting about 5K each mth.

Dun worry mate, next interview should be up soon. Especially if they need more crew with the new A380 though its delivery is delayed till 2007. As for me, my dreams ae kind of hampered now as my missus does not want me to fly. Sigh....... But I think I will try the next oe that comes up. All we can do is to keep waiting. Cheers, Stonekool



Wow.. your speech gives me huge motivation. Really! Thank you! Anyway, where did you get the "internal gossip about SQ is indeed looking for guys as they are really short of GS"? Do you know any peeps in SQ or something? Cause if you do know some inside info whether SQ requires male cabin crews in future, please do inform me at blue_sunkist@yahoo.com ya.

Thank you for your encouragement again. hopefully the forthcoming interview will arrive soon. But why some previous entries stated that there'll be no more interviews this year?

Erm... the culture in SIA as u asked... I should say that, there is no particular culture within the Stewardess and Steward in SIA.... It's actually more on how u present yourself to the others and how sociable you are to make friends, how helpful you are to help, how willing are you to learn, how hardworking are you to work, and your attitute to work in a team...and with your buddy.... Whether you survive or not in this kind of environment, erm... I feel that, partly it's luck, as in which senior you are attached to follow and learn from, which buddy and team you are assigned to fly with, and partly, is whether you have the right attitude annot... that's what i feel after 6 months in SIA... :)

And btw, I am a Diploma student, I do not have a degree. But intending to study part-time maybe after another 6 months in SIA, after I am used to my flying schedule.

But one thing I have to add is.... I make many good fun and nice friends in SIA, during training and when flying.... And it's really fun to travel to so many places and to serve people, because i feel that the passengers really looked upon you as the Singapore Girl to serve them.... Maybe I havent met with the bad things in my job yet... But I have to say, I love my job...and though its not for a lifetime, its a good experience in my life... and in future when I stop flying, this symbol "ex-SQ Girl" will still follow me to the end of my life! Hee..... Yes, I am kind of interested in the "Glam" thing, but who doesnt out there, right Girls....

Go for it! And wish you all the Best of Luck!

It's fun in SIA.... Singapore Airlines!

Singapore Girls, you're a Great Way to Fly!


Lynne, can u add me in msn at smoretea@hotmail.com as well cos my head is just full of uncertainties and queries?
Thankz Lotsa

Hey Stonekool,

i am one of the guys who really aspiring to be a cabin crew but there isn't any chance for now since most of the time airlines need only stewardess wannabes. Remember that time emirates post their ads? I was so disappointed they need only ladies. As for SIA, there isn't any new job postings... So we GUYS just have to wait and wait and wait...


hey! what do you meant by 'stewardess wannabes' ? aren't you yourself a steward wannabe too? dun be mean! :evil:

wow so lucky u, to get into SQ! Btw, wats ur qualifications? From what i know, if u have a degree and above, they'll let u in no matter ur height. I guess u're not those too skinny type, thats y the kebaya looks great on u! :D

Can u tell us more abt the culture in SQ? The crew inside, are they really that zappy? And the monthly salary u get? Thanks! :lol:


Hi bubblegum,

Just like to clear something up.. it's not true that you will get in if you have a degree and above. I just graduated from NUS and I will start trg with SIA at the end of the month. However, most of the people who got in are diploma holders. On the contrary, I have found that if you have a degree, it's actually much harder to get in. Out of around 25 of us who got accepted in the end, only around 5 were degree holders! :) At every stage of the interview, the interviewers will keep asking you if you are serious in joining SIA since you have a degree. They have the notion that degree holders don't stay on for long and you have to be really insistent to convince them that you really want the job.


Hi justme,

wow congrats! excited abt ur taining? :)
Btw, how is the pay like? and the bond amount?


hi bubblegum,

thanks.. yeah am really excited!

basic pay during trg is $1,390 per mth. bond amt is $13,200. :(


Omg.. u r a U grad and yur basic pay is so low..? izzit after cpf or b4? Do dey give the basic pay according to education level?


that's just the way it is.. most of the money comes from allowances... i think girls who are poly grads get the minimum $1200. i have $190 more because of the degree ($90 more) and NS ($100 more) i think... anyway in the air, whether you have degree or not doesn't matter la.

this is b4 cpf btw.

there were 2 local recruitment for guys recently, one was in may and the other in july... might be a while before the next recruitment because of the current backlog of new trainees. but yeah its true lots more guys are needed. so just hang in there, should be soon.

Hey RIAN,
During the recent emirates interview, there were guys there too. And amazingly, 2 got in into the 2nd round consisting 54 ppl. And since it was a minority, the 2 got into the next round of 8 and lastly they both got in.
Thats for you info.
