I came early for the interview at around 08.40am and cleared my 2nd interview =) The one to one interview basically asked me about SIA, why i want to join them and so forth.And i was also asked to read a short passage. I expected those questions so my interview was somehow a breeze.

I'm going for my 3rd interview that is the water confidence test this thursday. And if i pass, i will proceed to the kebaya fitting followed by the psychometric test. =)

Wish me luck ppl! =)


Hi Aniqma,

Did you make it to the next round?

How was the passing rate like?

Hi Dyra,

thanks for your info! Wow only 15 out of 40 got through the Kebaya test... looks like chances are really really slim... sigh...

Did you get through?

Hmmm... from what you saw, can you roughly tell me why most of them got elimated? Too fat? Too skinny? Too lousy complexion?

Sorry for asking so much... really do wanna know what they're looking for.

Regards

Hi all. Clarification - 12 out of 40 made it through today. No one is sure why the 28 candidates didn't make it.

Hey flyaway,

Hi Teahouse,

You said that the collar bone part is important? Hmm..was wondering how is that so? So is it better to have a protruding one or nothing at all? Thanks~!

As for the 2nd round of interview (jus some info that i would like to share with other posters), be really prepared as they may pose some really challenging questions. They would ask the most common question, e.g. why do you want to join SIA; what do you know about SIA; what are some of the experiences that your SIA friends have shared with you, etc to scenario questions and even questions like between hardware and software, which one do you think is more important...faint..You really do need to make an impression by answering smartly and promptly..and the satisfaction is really high when you get that acknowledging nod from them.. :D


Twinkle,
This is just to enlarge on your experiences and help other applicants prepare for their coming interviews (I hope).

In any interview there are always going to be common questions which you have outlined above. Why do you want to join a company and what do you are unsurprising since the answer would show just how interested somebody is.

Scenario questions are of course to see how you would deal with a situation that may occur (e.g. spilling wine over a passenger accidentally due to turbulence - not your fault but you will still have to take the 'blame').

The other question regarding software and hardware is to see how quickly you can analyze a situation or problem. This often done by breaking a problem down into small manageable 'chunks' a bit like mathematics.
What do you need to use software? A computer of course. The computer consists of the hardware to operate the software. However, if the hardware is to old it might not support the software. Therefore one
answer is the hardware. Conversely someone might say I have the latest computer so the software is more important to me as I have a particular task in mind. Sometimes there are no right or wrong answers they are just looking for your ways of thinking.

Good luck with the remaining stages of your application, wishing you every success.


Plavt.


Hi Plavt,

Yup, i was sharing the interview questions that i got from the interviewer that time. :lol: Thanks for your insights regarding the interview questions. But just one point to note, that 'software and hardware' thingy is actually refering to people and the facilities of SIA. That was what i interpreted that day and i suppose i was correct, Heh, cause after that question, she seemed really pleased and decided to give me that slip of paper! heh...

oh, anyway, my answer was that both are equally important..because it is the people that differentiate SIA from the other airlines, cause this is one asset that cannot be copied (think about the professional pilot and the service-orientated cabin crews). But on the other hand, hardware is also important in providing a safe and comfortable environment for the passengers on board. (think about the inflight facilities, the reclined and spacious seats, the inflight meals..)

Hope this will clarify the point that i have raised up earlier~ :lol:
