Stewardesses work based on contract..

But STEWARDS can work till retirement at the age of 60 i think...

how old are u bent?? and when do u wanna apply for SIA?


Hi Donno & Bent,
The retirement age for air steward is 62 now. At about late 40s, you will be an Inflight Supervisor, PROVIDED that SQ renew your contract with them.

Cheers!

Hi Bent,
SQ MITE prefer people without working experience, as they find that it is easier to mold into their standards n culture.

Cheers,
Paige :wink:

Not sure if you are just joking here sicne much of what you said made good sense. There was something of a long discussion on this which you may have seen and there are a few poor fools who just did not get the fact that you must be able to swim.

My dear Plavt

interviewees will all be wearing the life vest, which will be inflated by flowing sm air into the 2 red tubes. The real test is when it's your turn to jump, and getting across the pool.

as long as you get across the pool on your back, which is what we called BACKSTROKE. you don't even have to worry about floating or drowning.
i have known many people who claimed that they can't swim, till now that they are flying, and they still can't swim, but how did they ever get across the pool?

by luck or they flew across? Doubt so. :D

If you are still worried, please go for a crash lesson. If still scared, don't go for interview.

Wow stylus is so straight forward. I hope people start realising instead of saying that stylus is another one who's trying to demotivate people in this forum like what they said about Plavt, Quasimodo, etc.

Thank you for your reply, the way you worded your original post as regards this is a bit confusing. You have confirmed a point I was making to a different poster (have look back several pages and you will see who I mean).

BTW I am not an applicant I just like to point out where some people make mistakes, how they could best approach their goal since I am old enough to look at my own mistakes-surprise it might be to some (might start a different thread on that theme), the rumors as well as answer one or two idiots.

hmm.. pardon me for being straight forward as well. i dun mean any harm. i just feel that yes, they are facts and i agree with all the points abt ppl not bothering to read up b4 asking a qn, asking silly questions etc etc, BUT i feel that there is a nice way to be straight forward instead of being rude or mean. this is a skill all flight attendant shld have too. hope im not offending anyone by posting this. i just tot that this forum's main objective is to help one another... but i feel it's becoming a tad bitchy.

Possibly you feel it's 'becoming a bit bitchy' because some posters are finally being given the right directions but are too thick to understand = hence the stronger words.
They will become or stay prennial losers if all they hear is that it was bad luck that they didn't pass the tests or interviews.
Do you not agree that straight talking is more helpful than pussy-footing arouns and saying 'oh, bad luck, next time it will be better' - which does nothing to address the issue of WHY the applicant failed?
