I would like to know what you mean by that as I have seen it time and time again in this forum and it really is a silly statement. The fact is you have to be able to swim the instructor does in fact ask that. Besides I don't know any body who willing jumps into water when they can't. By the way DoveLady what would happen if the life-jacket failed?


oops sorry what i meant was weak swimmers or candidates who know on breastroke or any other style but not so much on backstroke.. my apologies that i didnt state clearly earlier on.. :?


So that means i must at least know how to swim breaststroke? I really do not know how to swim at all but I'm not afrid of water. Does this means that I should not try for flight stewardess?

Base pay is S$1000 for a regional flight attendant. All got $1000 - You only get more basic if you're a purser - I think it was $1200 and Chief Purser $1600.... Those coming for this intake should be all normal flight attendants.

SQ pays between S$1200-$1500. Don't expect to be rich :) Takehome $2k to $2.5K singapore dollars....


Haha,
No lah, dun expect to be rolling in dough, toygirl. I am willing to take a pay cut. Working as a Primary School teacher at present. Thank you for the inside story and insider information. Nice uniforms at UA I must say, black and blue... :)

I'm a malaysian guy who is going for this Sunday's interview. I would like to know if wearing a coat will it be considered as overdress? or should i just come in with normal office attire? Would also like to know the strict requirements for a guys hairstyle? Does it need to be really short or just neat?

Oh yeah, appreciate some input on this as well. My SPM results weren't that great, actually kinda bad but I got an A for English though. Started working straight after. However, I did a Diploma in Business Admin at a local college part-time while I was working and I've just completed it but I have yet to receive the Diploma Certificate. All I have are my result slips and my results are considerably good, will this do? Can I just pass them the result slips or will they deem it as unacceptable?

Thanks a heap for the help and advice!

ciao


Can anyone shed some light on this?

Thanks..


Bump!

Anyone knows how much is the beginning salary for SIA? It's website states total income of $3k, including salary n allowance. So is this the starting pay or?

Your basic is between $1.2-$1.6K over at SQ - You earn by your allowances.

Thanks Shrapnel for the updated salary. I recalled men who served NS got an additional $100 more in basic. This is just a rough figure :)

Ryanstar - The UA uniform (for regionals) was actually made and decided in a rush - So they ordered it from a local mass uniform shop in Chicago! :P LOL - No designer labels here! :D

Hehe,
You really have the scoop and low down on everything, "toygirl"! Was looking at the pics of the local crew and the Bangkok-based Thai crew. Just fantastic!

[quote="babysnow"]I really do not know how to swim at all but I'm not afrid of water./quote]

Are you saying you cannot swim? I ask because there seems to be a language issue here given the times that has been said in previous posts and what was said by DoveLady in response to my question.

The simple fact is; you have to be able to swim at least 25m this is to enable you to get away from the aircraft as when it sinks as it would eventually in open seas you will be sucked under with it.

I do not know how to swim meaning that I can't swim without anything to support to eg. life vest or float. However I'm able to paddle and move around in the water if I have something to support to. Hope this can clarify the issue.
