Oh no, you are going to apply for a job where you have to think for yourself and you don't know how to get to the Sheraton.

Who stays in hotels - simple answer? How do they get there- simple answer?
How do they know this if they have never been in the country before? Now, there is a simple solution and you don't even have to move from your computer - wanna think about it? :o

as far as i am concern,for sq girl we need to tie up our hair and make into a bun which will be taught during training and we must blacken our hair instead of blonde or something brownish though it's not visible..

Hi Elizabeth,

You said something about being multi-lingual. What kind of languages are more often used? Are they like very fluent? What about yourself? Care to share more with respect to that?

politics?

claudine wrote:I went for the SIA recruitment last Nov, and passed the first 2 rounds. I would think they were looking for pleasant looking girls who can present themselves and talk well.

After the 2nd interview, the guy who interviewed me said they wanted girls who are cheerful, positive and willing to work hard. But he warned me that I may fail the 3rd round, which is the kebaya test becoz he thought I was too small-sized. (I am 24yrs old, 1.6m, 43kg)

AND.... true enough, I failed the kebaya test!!!! Actually I understand why, the bigger sized girls looked really curvarous in the kebaya, but I looked really skinny and straight. In the end, all the big girls got in and the smaller girls got kicked out. And seriously, the girls who got in were not really beauties, including me.

So, one word of advice, please put on weight before you go for the interview. And make sure you can speak proper english, not singlish. But the politics is really really bad, so..... may not be a good job after all.


"But the politics is really really bad, so..... may not be a good job after all."

Can anyone highlight me on that? How are things (politics) over there?

Msg to Antispy

Postby cabbage_girl » Sat, 11 Nov 2006 12:36 am

Hi Antispy, understand from the previous posts that you are one of the interviewer. frankly speaking, care to share what exactly SIA is looking for? I've failed twice at the 1-2-1 interview and I really dont know what I did wrong. The previous interview was a SUPER long one and I was asked many questions. Ranging from what do I tink bout SIA to a given scenario to test my reactions.

The interviewer even went on to ask what would I do, should I fail the interview. Gosh, that was disappointing to hear. :p

Hope you can provide more tips.

Thanks.

So whatever it is - tomorrow's the interview! Confident with humbleness, go out there and present yourself. Brain is a must. Beauty is a plus!

If you're below the required height, there's always next interview to go to. At the meantime, prepare yourself by jumping alot (eg. playing basketball), put on weight (for skinny ones) and read more Straits Times.

Until then, this coming Sunday - some will go home with sad faces :( and some will remain cheerful :D (for the rest of their career with SIA)

Hello cowie,

apparently, the interviewer did ask me this qn, which really caught me offguarded.
seriously, dunno wat else i can do to pass the interview.

anyway, for all those who are going tomorrow.
do remember to bring in ur best smile.

when trying for the kebaya, make sure you look for the size that fits you the most. even if its a bit loose or tight, pls cont looking for one that fits u perfectly, if not almost perfect, yah?


all the best. ;)

#-o As I have said elsewhere take no notice of anit_spy999, like ryanstarr (who incidently was a flight attendant) said "have you ever seen an interviewer write like that?"

Welcome to the board Jayce, the post by Elizabeth is very old and pops up every so long like a bad smell spouting off exactly the same words. Personally I wouldn't take too much notice since it's written like an airline advertisement. The last time I saw that post was over a year ago! :o :???:
