Sign. The whole recruitment process takes really long, more than 2 months already. For a foreign candidate, after going through all rounds, we need to waiting for the work pass application, attend another medical checkup in singapore and then waiting for the result before signing the contract? Still having a long way to go.

Hey guys and gals,
You do not have to worry about the training. If you happen to get thru all rounds, they will ask you how many months notice is required of you to leave your current job. They will then arrange a training date for you based on the notice period. As for whether tea party will be held together with the water test, I doubt so because the norm is that the tea party is carried out after the final round of interview if you clear it. Water confidence test is normally carried out in conjunction with the psychometric test (personality test). Hope that my info helps. Good luck to you guys.


Cheers

Medical Check-ups

Postby QiQi » Wed, 05 Jul 2006 9:22 pm

Hi All,

I am new to this forum. Really admire those of you who went for the SIA interviews. Congrats to those who made it. As for those who didnt make it, don't give up as long as you believe in yourself.

As for me, I havent been to any of the interviews. Just want to clarify the following issues before I decide whether it is worthwhile for me to attend the interviews as I am born with some medical history:

1) What tests or check-ups do they conduct for Singaporeans? Is it the same for foreigners? Pls be specific.

2) Is blood test required for Singaporeans?

3) Do they check the heart beat for Singaporeans?

Appreciate if someone could answer my queries, preferably someone who has gone through the medical check-up for local SIA Stewardess. Thanks :D

Hi,

I'm not too sure whether the test for singaporean and foreigner is the same.

There is no blood test for the medical check but they will check on your blood pressure, eyesight, hearing, heartbeat, breast (for lumps), joints, teeth and gums, throat, nostril, bmi and urine test. There will also be an x-ray test which will be in another clinic. You will also have to sign a declaration form on your past and present sickness, e.g. childhood asthma, motion sickness etc.

Thats all i can remember.
Hope that helps. =)

hello dilemma_nic,

i went on sunday at 10am and i cant remember what time did i get into the first round self presentation. I only remember it only finished at abt 3.45pm :o

So during the water confidence test, we need to jump off a mock plane and swim backstroke with a life jacket right? From here, wat are they looking for? As long as i dont hesitate to jump and can swim with life jacket should be able to pass? :shock:

How long will the whole interview process be like?

Did u go for the interview last weekend?

In a word charchar confidence, here is something that was posted some time ago by a member of SIA staff (I have left the rest of the post in for the benefit of other posters here);



oNe wrote:In regards to the 'water confidence test':
Yes our cabin crew must exhibit the ability to stay calm and capability to swim. The purpose of this is to ensure that the lives of the passengers are not further endangered by the incompetence of the crew. Yes some were chosen even though they did not exhibit a strong swimming ability but they passed the test on the basis that even with their slight handicap, they displayed enough to have been evaluated as non-impairing in a rescue situation. The key word is CONFIDENCE.

As for 'qualifications':
Stated in all our recruitment drives and campaigns is the preferance given to graduates from a certain academic level.
This simply means we encourage people of these academic background to apply. Of course, we have people from lower level of educational qualifications attending our interviews but the normal practice would be to turn them away. As disheartening it maybe but that is the policy now. Prior, the minimum academic qualification was lower, as some of you would have already known but due to the competitive nature of the industry and the wide pool of talents available, the standard has been raised. Now the argument could be made that what if a candidate possess all the necessary skills bar the academic, shouldn't they be given the opportunity? The answer is simply, if we say yes to them that would defeat the purpose of stating our preference for our ideal candidate. In a way, that would also infringe and hamper the chances for the more academically qualified candidates. This matter is not new and we deal with tons of applications that didn't meet our requirements and as such, processing time which could have been quicker was lengthened to deal with them.

As I read through each and every page of this post, I am quite surprised and baffled for it is obvious that most if not all your queries pertaining to our Cabin Crew position have actually been answered to a satisfactory level.

Thank you for all your interest but on a serious note, do pre-assess yourselves before applying for the position.

To dream of something beautiful is not necessarily a beautiful dream.

Looking forward to seeing some of you.



Plavt.

hmm..hello!
i finished bt the same time...u cant be charlene are U? :roll:

and yeah..we are jumping off from some mock plane..
and due to the constraint of a lifejacket, the most convenient stroke will be Backstroke..
However, it doesnt necessarily mean that u will pass if u complete the lap, skin test is conducted as well, but i do heard from batches that skin test are briefly checked...so wad is more important is...
survive well in the mocking wave pool and make sure u finish till the end of the other pool? :D

as stated in the form, the swim+psychometric test will end around one plus..

Thanks for the reply Lolitaa. Really appreciate that.

I have second thoughts about going for the interview. The reason is that I am born with heart murmur. Does anyone knows whether SQ is willing to accept people with this condition?
