I recently applied to be a flight steward and made it all the way to medicals. However I received a rejection letter just days after my medical check up. (Dated 15 March, check up was 11 March) I declared quite a bit of childhood illnesses and I was wondering if anyone had been in the same boat but managed to try again?

How long does SIA keep the medical records?


I got the same dated letter too! I'm pretty pissed off because I do have a specialist report to be submitted. The report from my specialist will take 2-4weeks to be ready... And this was highlighted to the clinic staff and doctor that reviewed me!

How can they submit the review to SQ when I have pending documents?!
Isn't the review about my CURRENT health status?

I'll be bringing this matter up to the clinic for misinforming SQ about my status and malpractice for handling my review with such poor etiquette!
If need be, I'll get a lawyer.
Especially when my specialist declared me fit for flight duties!
Specialists overrides GPs anytime.



Hey eviloz, Im in a similar situation where I had to retrieve a detailed medical report for a childhood surgery that I have declared. I have managed to retrieve and submit it to the clinic since. For now, I have not received any rejection letter. May I knw if you have any updates on ur situation? Did the clinic/ SIA accept your explanation and appeal? TIA


I got a rather rude reply via email that my appeal was unsuccessful .
I asked if there is any other channels for my appeal with specialist memo to be reconsidered. Informed them I skipped the 13th April walk In because of my pending appeal.

"You may like to know that the outcome will remain the same regardless of
the number of applications (walk-in) or appeals (write-in) that you submit."

So yea... I guess they don't really entertain appeals even if its from LKY.

Hi @eviloz,

I am a crew currently at SQ. Honestly I can understand your frustration because I had to wait for my report from the medical centre for a period of time and I know that it is v frustrating if they process the results without the full documentation cos i was afraid of that too. However, your approach to the matter I feel is not suitable. If SQ doesn't accept you due to medical conditions, they surely have a reason for the decision made.

When you mentioned you wanted to get a lawyer to deal with the situation, all the more SQ wouldn't accept someone like that. Simple reason being (from what I have observed from my time here, that they do not like crew to be "rebellious" ) as ridiculous as they may sound, you sound pretty argumentative (I can fully understand why) but you must also note that it seems pretty aggressive from the way you (wanted to) handle the matter. I hope you understand what I mean.

For me, I told myself previously that if I didn't get the job due to medical reason, at least I know I could have made the cut cos I did pass all rounds of interview after all. Medical is something that you cannot help or change, and it doesn't mean you weren't good enough to join. There may be somewhere else better for you instead. After all, you don't want to risk your health for a job right? It'll not be worth it, trust me on this.

Good luck to you in future and I hope this helps!

Hey thanks for the reply...

I have not filled in the details yet..

Well, I managed to get in touch with SQ and I submitted my specialist memo directly to them via mail. So no course of action was taken to wards Shenton Medical.
No info of engaging a lawyer was given either.
I just told them I am waiting for a specialist memo declaring me fit for flying duties and it would take a week or two..
The correspondence was professional.

I was told they will get back to me ASAP.
2 weeks later, I sent them an email to follow up and the reply I got was pretty rude.

hi eviloz, did they really say the outcome will be the same no matter how many walk-in you go for? meaning its a permanent ban and they will not accept those who failed medicals at subsequent walk-in interviews anymore?

who's the one who replied to your email?

That was a cut and paste from the email response I got.
I don't know what they mean by that.
I believe this response was from another member of the recruitment team.... The first correspondence was pretty friendly and understanding.

Hey guys!! For those going for june's interview, just a heads up, I think the "maximum" weight you can have for them to take you in is 50kg. I was 54.5kg during the 1st and 2nd round of interview and was put under review.

When I went for the review recently(14th april 2013), I weigh 51.8kg. The lady that checked me was very impressed and wanted to pass me. But another lady who was in the room made a 'no' handsign behind me and when I turned around, she pushed me to turn forward. SO RUDE! And then I was told to change out of the kebaya and wait for the results. I was told that I was unsuccessful but they didn't even tell me the reason why(and I cried at the carpark lol).

Then around half an hour later, the HR lady, Mary, called me to come back and said that they are reviewing my case. I went back and she told me to maintain my weight and if possible, drop to 50kg and below. I then hand in my documents and happily sign some forms and got the letter to go for medical check up.

Just went around 3 days ago and had to pay $173 for a 2nd xray(probably due to my spine). So scared that I have scoliosis :( Now just waiting for the results of the check up.

So I guess the other lady did not want to pass me because my bottom half is slightly big but the lady who checked me saw how much effort I put in and how much my weight dropped(and she was the same lady who did the 1-1 interview).

So beware of this fierce lady with short hair/quite tall. To others/to yourself you might seem okay, but to her, I guess her expectations are quite high? Or probably because I was put into a group with lots of skinny girls. So. :(

Anyway, good luck all and dreams do come true. Just have a little faith and work towards it!! :)

Hello, thank you for sharing but 50kg? Wooot? May I know how much is your height? I'm 170 something and there is no way I can reach that good ol' 50 without being malnourished. I hope they stick to BMI 18-22 index (and 25 for guys).
Nonetheless I'm glad to hear they give you a chance. Confratulations and hope everything is okay!

Anyone who passed all rounds for 13 April walk in and went for medical check up heard any news yet? Have they started mailing out rejection letters or called up those who got accepted..? :?
