I have a query actually. In the SQ website, it doesnt state that PR's will be accepted in this intake. Im just wondering if it is understood that when they say 'Singapore/Malaysian Citizens', it also means PR's. Cuz on previous posts, they clearly stated it.
I just dont want to go down if they are clearly gonna ask me to leave, cuz im gonna have to go through alot to go down for the interview this sunday.
And another query actually, i am acutally half korean with British nationality(passport) but Singapore PR of cos. I was born here and been here ever since. I don't know how strict SIA is with their policies, but is that a reason for them to reject me? If anyone actually knows, kindly let me know. Thanks a bunch


This issue was raised elsewhere in this thread and as far as I remember it is perfectly permissible for those with PR status to apply. That said they can always change their policies so if I can find the relevant information I will post the results here on the other hand it may be a good idea to contact the airline themselves.

Hi All,

May I ask some questions, please? Hope to see some light here.

1) For someone who is going to NTU in Jul 07, should he/she apply for the cabin crew post this coming interview?

2) If application is successful, will he/she need to put off his studies? Or can he/she work from now till sch term starts, then later go back to studies, and work during sch hols?

thank you! :D

Suzy,

After have a good look at the SQ site advertisement and downloading the various application forms and reading over them it would seem that this intake is limited to Singaporean or Malaysian Citizens only. Other position applications on the website specifically indicate PR while the current application form for Flight Attendant does not. However, while it did NOT say PR's it still left the field for PINK/BLUE NRIC's probably because of Malaysian PR's in Singapore (lots of them). They are Malaysian Citizens but have Blue Singapore PR NRIC's. I think in this case the only thing you could do would be to call them direct or just go down to the walk-in anyway.

anti_spy999, are you for real?


Yep, i am 1 of the interviewer. If you happened to be interviewed by me, you must consider yourself unlucky because i am very fussy. First impression always count. On the English part, i will close 1 eye and let the girls in even though they might stammer a bit. I know they are nervous. But if you use broken english just to test my patience, i will send you home in tears. Sometimes, my words hurt but i have got no choice because i want to see your reaction.

Any questions to ask, SQ fans?? :D

Toygirl, perhaps you can email me your email address. I would like to ask a few more questions and I think it would be beneficial for me. Would you mind? My email is syn4es_flair@hotmail.com. Thank you. :)

In a word I am would say 'cobblers' to the post by the supposed SIA interviewer, why would it matter what colour your shirt apart from black or something outlandish? Wearing a tie to an interview is generally consired good manners as you rightly say.
