Anyone here have any idea how stringent the guys' body checks are? What are they looking for? If they are looking for those macho types...then I am out...haha.... :???: Any kind souls care to enlighten me?

Heh I'm skinny too, and moreover I don't have good skin :? But wat the heck, let's just give it a shot. I'm 80% riding on pure luck here :P


yesh!! I saw a really slim steward that day at the airport.. his blazer is actually kinda oversized... so instead of checking on your flaws, highlight your abilities and strengths to em~ when u feel good, they will feel the same as u.. flaunt what you had best! cheers, all the best!

Hi everyone, i just searched for 'singapore airlines forum' on yahoo and i ended up on this webbie. I'm so surprised to see so many of us here inspired to fly the friendly skies!

My interview slot is on the 8th, at 9.40am. Like many others, I have edit my pics with photoshop before submitting. I have bad skin but i'm gonna cover it up with the wonders of make-up.

Plus, i highlighted my hair a couple of days before receiving the invite. So i'm just gonna go on with my coloured hair, add tons of confidence, and see how it goes..

Good luck to everyone!

Postby Menaquinone » Wed, 04 Jan 2006 2:40 pm

Dear all,

I was wondering if its 2nd nature to all FA-wannabes out there to send in a

1) Professionally taken photo OR

2) Cropped photo taken off at random from your pictures folder?

SIA-veterans..Whats your take on this? I sensed somethign wrong now...when i dismissed the idea of taking a proper photo for my Internet job application.

Especially in Singapore where English is considered to be the 1st language, I think it should be very obvious that English is a must for any airline, shouldn't it?

Hi ZUNBO...I guess maybe it depends on the colours he have trouble seeing...besides they will have a medical checkup which includes eyesight and colour-blindness...If itz not too sirius,itz no harm going for it. :wink:






thanks eastsider.....=) :D

I think you must be right. I remeber reading a flight attendant's blog (now defunct) in which she said the job didn't allow her to highlight her hair. She did work for Singapore Airlines until sometime last year. Besides this goes against the 'traiditional Asian image' the Airline likes to portray.

Hi any girls having their interviews on Sunday 08 Jan?

Postby cafe » Wed, 04 Jan 2006 10:40 pm

Hi I'm new here. Received an email this afternoon for an interview on the 8th jan Sun. I thought they normally conduct interviews for stewards on Sundays and stewardesses on Saturdays?

Or had they made a mistake of taking me as a guy instead?!!! :shock: Any girls going on Sunday?

I've called to check my application status and I'm not shortlisted. Nevertheless, good luck to those going for the interviews this weekend.


you're not alone for not being shortlisted. i am so.. upset. well, we can try again next time. ;)



hi girls,

if u ever follow this thread right from the start, u would have notice that i actually posted another similar msg some time ago.

anyway, what i wanna say is, like u girls, i have sent my application quite late, towards the end of the recruitment drive (i think it should be on the friday b4 the closing date). yet i have not received my invite to the interview as well.

i have actually applied for the july recruitment. the interview date stated on the website is actually 2nd july. but i did not get the invite for 2nd july. i was so sad but few weeks later, i think 2 weeks later, i got an invite to another interview (i cant remember the date but should be start of aug). but i am sure i did not send in my application another time. when i went for the interview, i learnt that other fellow interviewees also sent in for the same recruitment but were not invited for the 2nd july interview, instead they were invited for the aug interview. i heard that the number of ppl applying is so large that they have to divide the group into 2, scheduled for 2 different interview dates. from the last recruitment exercise, the one in oct, i think the same thing happen too.

what i am trying to say is, since like me, both of u have actually sent in your application quite late, we might have been scheduled for the later interview date. i am now thinking, since we are not invited for the 7th jan interview, why not continue to check ur mailbox and look forward to a possible invite 2 weeks later? i am not trying to give u girls false hope, i am also waiting eagerly for my invite, and i hope this time round it works the same way too.

anyway, i think alot of ppl here actually are worried abt ur age being older than what they expect, or ur photo being ugly/not full-body shot/ not formally dressed etc. from what i know, i think they dun really judge from your applications. they will actually invite all ppl who sent in their application for an interview, from there they will start axing ppl. if they actually did go thru the applications and photos and details so carefully, how can they not notice that there are ppl who sent in their application both by snail mail and email, and yet still send them 2 invites? i really dun think they start choosing candidates from the applications.

just my thots....

pinkpluspinky :P


Hi pinkpluspinky,

Thanx for ur kind feedback :D :D . I've actually sent my application form on the 26 Dec. I've not yet got a reply from them so i think i'll have to miss the 7 & 8 jan interviews. :( Do anyone of u have also sent your application form after 17 Dec & has got a reply? :wink:
