Hmm those who receive confirmation calls, when will you be starting training? Any idea how many batches are there? Thanks.

Yes. The SIA website states,
"Requirements (for Singaporeans and Malaysians only)***"
"***For other nationalities, please refer to the other sections for the requirements and our recruitment exercises conducted in your respective countries."

reading pleasure of the not so glamorous side


I have read this article yesterday. I do agree that being a CC is not as glamorous as people make it to be and honestly, I'm worried if I would get used to being away from my family and friends most of the time. Jet lag and future job prospects are things that CC hopefuls should reconsider too. But if your dream is to be a CC, I think that self-motivation and passion will overcome any obstacle. Good luck to those going for next month's recruitment! :)

also this piece of news earlier this month - for those who missed it

also heard that they are cutting down more long haul flights.

pay cut + cut long haul flights = might not be gd news for new crew or all

Realistically in every job regardless of what level you are at - fresh, middle, senior or management.

As long as you are paid 'fairly' and even so, if you are not but compensated by other 'perks' and it is within your acceptable range to live and spend. You shall be able to still enjoy your work and commit to producing what you are expected to bring to the company for a period of time.

As you aged, and allowance being cut. It is not a good indication at all given that you are now being paid almost on the line of those newly joined crew.

We all know why there is so frequent recruitment ---- needless to say -- the overall 'package'.

In comparison with our neighbor airline, MAS & If you take MAS frequent, you will notice the 'faces' are not new but older as they have worked their way up since joining the airlines - I believe its the overall welfare system for the crew that works for most of them. Whereas SIA, newer and fresh look - overall 'salary package' is not as attractive as it used to be now.

Hi, you should give HR a call asap and let them know about your situation(IF you are very sure about staying in your current workplace for another month). I'm sure HR will understand and advice you what to do, they'll probably let you start training with a later batch. :)

Have you signed the contract? If you have I don't think you can delay or it'll be a breach of contract

Its the best to join ASAP in case of any uncertainty. They can terminate the contract even after you started training if the economy went down south, it happened before. In todays market why would you help the employer? They paying you a better pay? One month less flying will sent you back X amount of $$. The employer will terminate you as and when they want. Do you think they will employ you for one more month so that you can find a new job to pay your bills? When come promotion or bonus calculation one month can means the world of a different. Choice is yours and above is just my 2 cents.
