Re: Interview Stages

[quote="voxvox"]I guess since there is a recruitment going on very soon, people will also start asking what to be expected from the interview rounds. I have been through it once and will like to share my experience with everyone. Hope they are useful and will get everyone prepared.

I got the information below from some previous pages in the forum and added some words of my own. And if anyone find any discrepancy, please feel free to highlight to us. :D


Day 1 - Round 1: 10 interviewees in a room. Different questions posed so dont harp on any generic ones? Upon successful clearance, you will remain for round 2.

Day 1 - Round 2: 1-1 interview with an interviewer. Upon successful clearance, you will be rewarded with day 2 programs. They will ask you to bun up your hair if your hair is long. This is for the kebaya fitting.

Day 2 - Round 1: Kebaya fitting. Those who make it through the 2nd round will be asked to try the uniform. After that, one by one, the candidate will go into the well lit room with 3 interviewers with which one of them will be a beautician who will check for obvious scars. The candidate will be asked to walk to and forth the room. A tray will be handed to her and she is to stretch out her hands holding the tray.

After everyone has been through the stage, results will be announced. Those who did not make it through will be asked to leave. Those who did it, will stay for the 2nd and 3rd rounds. This is rather a “killer”

Hope can get in!!!


Just because they're conducting walk-ins and they're in need of more FAs this year, it doesn't mean they'll grab just about anyone. Remember that SIA is one of the best airlines in the world for many years and running, and its Singapore Girl remains an icon for the airline. They still look for unique individuals.

A yes, cheesie. That is what they are doing. I heard a beagle from my condo was accepted last week - heard she looked great in a kebaya.

Plavt, my post was not well-informed? I'll have you know the beagle was a bit of a looker (and English was her second language - Alsatian being her first, of course)

Hi kel83,

The last time I been to SIA walk-in interview was in 2001 and it was conducted in STC. The first round was still 10 in a group but I am not sure whether will it still be the same for the session conduct in Mandarin Hotel..
Hope this helps.. :)

Cheers!

That's ridiculous! More than 10 is too many for a group. Besides, they'll be conducting panel interviews the whole day, unlike in STC where they do it around half the day.
