alwiz have a back up plan..... i presume that you are from the east side....

though the arrival of A340 has been delayed again, im pretty sure they will open up their recruitment anytime soon.....


SIA is operating a few of A340s at the moment :)

Hi, Thanks a lot for all advices.
Anyway, I'm only afraid they will not be mass recruiting next year.
Let's keep our fingers crossed.Hopefully the delayed of A380 till next year will lead to more crews in need.
Will they actually wait for one to graduate before the training starts?I will be able to collect my degree cert only on next year Aug.But would like to give the interview a try if SIA is recruiting early next year.

Hi realised there're quite a number of ex or current cabin crew here. Can I enquire if someone can detail how the skin checks on the face, neck and hands are done? Do they scrutinise them at close range? Cause I don't have perfect skin. :(
Cheers,
Nip

Hi sharpnel,

Does this check apply to the males as well?Because you said the skin check is held during the kebaya session and the males don't wear the kebaya so they'll skip that round..Sooo,when do they check the males?

hmmm
for those who are worried about the skin check..
I would advise that u conceal ur freckles, pimples, scars or wadever dark spots which u have on ur face or even neck..make up really does wonders...
my skin check was conducted during kebaya and swim rd...
i would suggest that u apply waterproof makeup/concealer....

as for guys..skin check is conducted during swimming rd bah?

BUT, apart from these rds, pls stay composed and well groomed still...
im sure interviewers will check on us at ALL times......

i feel that the whole package counts...and u will put in the effort if ure really interested in joining SIA..

perfect skin is not necessary though, but not so so bad skin too....
SIA have girls who have rather uneven skin.....but they are still training in STC now...
so yah...i strongly believe that it consists of many many other factors....basically the whole package of u.............

***SIA is very particular about proper grooming....

"mei you" skin check ba jie jie :D i mean its not so stringent for the guys, they won't look that close. but tattoos and body proportion is very important for the guys, as you have to unofficially do a catwalk towards the interviewer for them to have a look at your skin.
well groomed is a MUST!! :wink: and its that million dollar smile that counts

i alwiz believe if you have an endearing personality that makes ppl feel happy and warm whenever your're there.....regardless of you have perfect skin or not....you alwiz win ppl's heart in some way.....


in every interview..cabin crew or not....u just have to sell yourself more into convincing them in believing u that you're the one for them..... depends on how u talk as well ..in some way

Braces

Thanks SingaporeGrl For your advise. Do appreciate it alot..:)

Thank you for the feedback! Wow looks like thick make-up is necessary for people like me who have not-so-perfect skin. Hope that helps...
Cheers,
