Thanks dilemma_nic! That's makes me feel better. Crossing my finger now. Btw, all the best to you and those who are still undergoing the test or the interview. Hope you guys will sail thru smoothly. Good luck !

My swim test experience

Postby Waiting to sign bond » Sat, 15 Jul 2006 1:06 pm

Hi

I wore formal attire for the swim test. (heels, water-proof makeup and all). There were girls who were wearing v formal as well but i was surprised to note tht several (approx 15/40) were wearing smart casual. Like pedal pushers... pants (those u2 kind) and even flowy skirts.

Found out later on, tht waht u wear dosent matter, coz amongst those tht got in, There were a handful who were wearing casual clothes.

We were shown the changing room and asked to change and assemble in the swimming area. I wore a tankini, bottom was a skirt...(Coz im bottom heavy mah)

In our swim wear, our ht & wt were taken again. my ht is 1.67 wt is 54kg. It was diff fr the one taken during the kebaya round. The person also dropped a bombshell, saying tht we will also haf to go thru a skin checkup after the swim test.

Thk goodness i concealed my scars with water-proof makeup (i recommend this brand called "covermark", can buy a small container of concealor fr seiyu bugis at $40)

We were divided into 2 grps and had to wait for our turn. i was in the 2nd grp. So i got to see the girls jump in and swim (backstroke) across. Immediately after tht they had to queue up and be subject scrutiny by a women. She made notes on a pad.

I noticed tht as long as you swam across. you;ll pass. In fact, as i was observing the instructors, they were not even looking at the girls while they were swimming across. Only the life guard/swimming instructor was observing the girls...

When it was my turn...the lifeguard uncle gave us clear instructions on how to swim across (back stroke) he also asked who do not know how to swim. And he said...only 1 in 1000 will fail swim test. (got life vest)

So basically, the point is...the swim test is not the most impt. its just the prerequisite. Whats impt, is making sure ur face is clear, and if there r scars, conceal them well. and maybe test n see how the makeup will look when its wet. what i did was to try it out at home first (i applied the makeyp and then ran water on my face to see which parts to put more make up.)

A tip. Do not touch ur face after coming out of the water. just push back ur hair if u need to. coz the makeup (cover mark) smears easily. so just leave it.

For those with long hair pls bring a rubber band to tye ur hair back neatly. coz when u jump in. (Its shocking ok! suddenly ur in the water!) ur hair goes evry where...

After the whole thing, we changed and sat down awaiting results.

Some girls were called aside first. Turned out, they were asked if they would mind cutting their hair. (uneven ears)

Apart fr these... nothing much happened. 14/39 gals were selected.

We then proceeded to to the psychometric test (20 min). using computers.

After which, we were given application forms to fill up and bring for our final interview/ tea party....

:) thts all folks.

Hope my experience will give u a better idea of wat to expect.

Regards.

thank u..i needed this sorta feedback actually, and why would u have heavy bottom when ure so tall and light!!

anyway, are the girls really tht bad? or is it they are jus merely being very strict?
do u know of any shorter ones like botherline height girls who manage to get thru?

dilemma_nic are you excited we are going on MOnday... Gosh... i think we had heard alot of the experience that people share around here...

Height, weight, complexion, etc... I think most importantly we need to stay calm and confidence at all times.

Well, will check out some waterproof makeup too esp the one that waiting to sign bond recommend....

Dear waitiing to sign bond do you have a shorter nick that we can address you?? :D

Dont worry girl,
the next intake will be up pretty fast, considering a lot of people resigned after taking the lump sum bonus this month. 25 is not old at all. I have seen people that are much older joining. Some people look younger than their age.

For those worrying over the complexion problem..,
you dont need to have a clear flawless complex... not everyone is that fortunate. SIA would need to hire people that looks ok.. that is, no major serious flaws like tatoo, acne... if it boost ur confidence to put no thick makeup to cover, go for it. But do it right. If not, go natural.

For those worrying about the min height issues..,
the main reason behind the min height is that u must be able to close the overhead compartment on the aircarft.

To waiting to sign bond,
cleaning toilet is for the safety/security, and for the cleanliness sake. Its part of the job scope and its also a parcel of our daily household chores. Nowsadays, newbies dont get bullied as like prev. So dont worry about that, but rather focusing on doing your work right. Married ppl.. definitely. many are even couple-coded to fly. no problem in this issue at all.

swim test

Postby Waiting to sign bond » Mon, 17 Jul 2006 9:38 am

There were girls of different hts. and you know what.
Some girls with perfect complexions did not get in.

But some with quite bad skin (blemishes)
Managed to get in.

So its quite unpredictable actually

Alot of the couples are flying together. So they have a choice to be couple coded, ie. fly together.
