Yep hi.. i got in! Its soOoo many people, so we only need to gone through round 1 which was self-intro....
and the round 2 was on tuesday!!
I'm back!! I wana share wif u guys what I went tru tis morn intv. It was disastorous, chaotic and messy which created a lot of unhappy applicants who may have rushed from work or even took leave for this interview.
I actually reached the hotel at 10.15am to be exact & to my surprised I was told to come back after 12pm reason was there were too many ppl and they wanted to clear this big group. Thus I made my way back to the hotel around 11.45am and realized that the queue wasnt getting any shorter. In fact, those coming in after 12pm were told to come back the next day. This resulted in many unhappy faces. I was lucky enuf to squeeze thru my way and get my height done within the next 45mins. Then we were instructed to go up to level 35 to be sitted in the waiting room, when we were there a staff from the hotel actaully tried to stop anymore ppl frm entering. It was really bad...ppl were pushing n squeezing thru & trying to talk things out with that staff. Of course...who wdnt get mad after the long wait n even after being directed to go up, we were instructed to go home!! I was pretty angry at that moment...he was saying like " You see, you cant even see the ppl inside..you will never get to the intv...there's many ppl in here..pls come back tmw." Even if we come back tmrw, what's the guarantee that this thing doesnt repeat and I might missed it totally. Finally, a lady from SIA tried to calm the situation and cleared the mess. Frankly speaking, I noticed that even they themselves r confused on who's next...who's in the line....
Sigh~Everything was very messy..they were giving explanations like they didnt expect the crowd to be this big cause the last time they had was like a few hundred but this time round approx...a thousand?
Having said that, I was glad that the situation was brought to control at the soonest alto the wait was killing me. We waited..n waited frm 1pm to 3.30pm before 20 of us were brought to level 4 back for the grp intv. I finally went into the intv room around 4pm in grp of 10 and only 4 of us got tru the next round. THe interviewee seems exhausted having to face thousand of applicants that's why I suspected he made it clear to us to just do a really brief intro abt urself, not more than that. I managed to go tru round 2, this thurs at 3.15pm. The wait really paid off for me.They had to split the first 2 rounds into 2 separate days instead of 1 day.... So I only managed to leave the building by 4.30pm. So an advise to those who's going tmrw...be there the earliest as possible...you might be ask to leave and there's no way you want to haf a wasted trip.
Girls...high heels NOT ADVISABLE for walk-in...I've been standing for almost 5 hrs today!! I hope this experience of mine is valuable for the rest who's curious abt today's intv. Gd luck!
P.S: Frm my opinion, walk-in interview are fair and open to everyone who meets the requirement unfortunately lack of anticipation creates a lot of chaos and there wasnt any proper system. I personally felt the usual shortlisting way is best to overcome such problem.
