Julie, we will try together again!!
I was asked the main characteristic of a service provider, and I guessed I didnt speak up more than I should when i was the number 7 of the grp, or lady luck wasnt at my side..or maybe i wasnt the cut for their standards. SO i shall further improve myself now, while waiting for their recruitment again! heehee..
darlings, very happy for all of you...jiayou!
Julie, promise and be my motivation, we'll shall try again till we succeed!
smiles!

word of advice: sometimes being too prepared isnt a good idea, they wan a natural you. There's a girl whom didnt dressed formally, in fact she looked very retro artistic, but she expressed herself well and got in. Another lady who dressed really well, with blazer and skirt, intro herself in soft and shy manner..she got in too..SO, pray and get a lucky charm, there is no right or wrong answers...
Nevertheless, there are really fabulous ladies i think will make through all the rounds, dress well, appeared presentable and spoke with a calm and natural manner..**envious** **I shall work hard to be like them!**
cheers!
Jerlyn Ang

Hahaha... =P Motivate yourself kk! Now I'm reading FEARLESS INTERVIEWING. haha.. Hope that helps to conque my fear. :shock:

Best Regards,
Julie Tan

Died on the first round some more... My overall speaking was ok I think. But I didn't get into the topic of "What makes you tick". I was more like doing self intro. And what does "tick" mean huh? Motivate?
Oh well, next intake bah. Any idea when will the next guys intake be? The one before this was September/October. So estimate... April/May?


Hi Brian,

Don't be discouraged. I tink 'tick' means perform or function well. It really depends on your luck sometimes during the first round. I heard fr my interviewer yesterday that there are going to be lots of recruitment drives coming up these few mths. just keep trying n nv give up ok!!!


Discourage? Maybe, but not disheartened :D Not giving up yet!!! But I think the "lots of recruitment drives coming up these few months" should be more applicable to stewardess bah... but will keep a look out :) In the mean time I think I go polish up my face bah... Orange skin+slight scarring... :/


Dear Brian!

Yup! Great spirit! Let's try again ok! For the next round of recruitment. In the meanwhile, let correct all the flaw we have.

Best Regards,
Julie Tan

need to get some opinions here...
how do the beauticians define scar? Is it sumetin permanent like birthmark or as long as there are visible marks such as being scalded, mosquito bites or even frm a fall. Wat about face condition? Cause I'm having these negative thoughts already as I have mosquito bites marks on my hand...shld I tell them the truth instead of concealing them which I felt very dishonest. Coz I heard they've very particular on this stage.


Dear Wawa,

Mosquito scars... are those obvious?? I understand that make up can be used but once in a blue moon, they might call their interviewees to come for interview without make up. That's really once in a blue moon. However, for the Water confidence test, after you jumped into the pool, your make up will be washed away already. So still, it will be revealed to the beauticians when they check you after the test. Hope that by your interview, the marks will disappeared. Try aloe vera kk! Very good to help reduce scarring. Or Vit E cream!

Best Regards,
Julie Tan


Hey Julie,

yes I am currently applying Vit E oil on those scars but dont tink can mke it by then..my fren frm SQ told me tat skin check after the confidence test is done on random cause duirng her time there wasnt any. Maybe I just tell them the truth la..coz the marks arent permanent n can be removed.

Swimming Test

Does SQ demand that all FA-interviewees must have the ability to swim? I can only float.

In all seriousness - one of the main functions of an FA is to render assistance when required - part of that is to assist passengers in case of an accident on water.
How can you save passengers from drowning if you can only 'float'?

Do some of the people applying for an FA position actually know what the job entails? It is not just pushing a cart around to serve drinks or make sure the right nail polish is used.

Think safety, people. SAFETY

Dear Wawa,

OIC...hmmm.. Yah.. the check should be randomly done de. Tell you what. You don't have to take my advise. But if I were you, I will not say until they ask. Do not point out your negativity mah. Yes, might be dishonest but if it's very very very obvious, they will see olso. So no point pointing it out de. Of course, your choice! =) You very sweet and honest leh!

Dear Menaquinone,

You need to know at least how to swim back stroke. That's the minimum when it comes to the test. But during the trainning, I believe they will teach you how to swim properly to save passenger, in the event of accidents.

I think in order to be fair to passengers, I suggest you take up swimming courses? Not just about the wages and serving eh? Anyone can float isn't it? :???:

hello wawa,
for kebaya fit. there will be 3 ladies inside the room.after wearing the kebaya which fits on you the most. you will have to wear the slip ons provided by them. (the kebaya sandals) when you go in, one lady will ask you to stretch out your hands. they want to make sure you have no visible marks on you. then she will walk one round around you to make sure your other parts of your body is okay too. PLUS, you know our neckline? after wearing the kebaya, some girls get too nervous. the neckline turns red!! so try not to get nervous. because i know one girl got kicked out because she broke out in redness. yeah, they will also make you walk from one end of the room to the other holding a tray.

Hi guys, i got thru 2 rounds of the interview today, waiting for confirmation of date for the psychometric test and swim test. Many guys managed to went through the second round, saw it when i was in the waiting room for about 2 hours. Only 1 din manage to get it. I believe they are quite needy for stewards. : )

Round 1 was fine. 6/10 got into round 2. But the interviewer from room 4 was rather harsh, rude and fcked up to me. He 'challenged' me with his questions instead of asking them. I felt let down instantly by his remarks.

I think I did pretty well for round 1. I hope to go again next time, and not bump into that same interviewer who screwed my hopes and dreams.

Good luck to the rest.


6 out of 10? How were the peeps whom got into round 2? He challenged you with his questions? Maybe you were let down by ill lack of confidence thus it became a challenge instead?

Hi groovemeister, wonder if you are the same batch as I do..my batch 6/10 went through..I am one of the 4 who did not pull through to the second round..disappointed though but will see wt happens.
