You need to look back at your previous attempts and work out where you went wrong. Think about the job and the important aspects; just sit down with a note pad and write what you think the interviewers are looking for, the positives and negatives, and think or work out what is the single most important part of the job (hint)>

hi..do u guys know if guys who're slightly overweight are ok? din manage to find out bout this part in the threads..look very presentable...i'm thinking not all guys who get through will have 6packs too ba..

and also...does SIA conducts "special" interviews? like if a couple wants to travel together.. so SIA help to assess both of them at the same time, since they have this "couple coded" thing for married couples..

Hey senior, for the WC, it's pretty simple. The dip and body check. I've seen chunky guys get chopped and they do look bulky to me. Most guys are usually slim and you should have seen many onboard?

Goodluck to all and ya boyfriend eh? :)

I don't think they conduct such interviews. Every crew is assessed individually definitely. :)

As long as you jump, you're fine. :wink: Swimming across should be easy since you're secured with the vest. I hardly see guys get chopped except for being bulky and mabye the tattoos.

Water confidence is not about swimming but jumping off. Ha! :)

They will do that. Bulky? Too much masses and overall too much of a big built. I haven't seen any big built guys for the later and earlier batches. :o

Hi! I think ur bf would be fine 2mrw...dun worry. Coz during my time there was this guy who's a fitness instructor, he made it pass the w.c. and subsequently went on to secure the job. So i think it shudn't be a concern... :)

I was just speaking to a friend who used to work in the cabin crew recruit department a couple of years ago. He tells me that while he was there, the cut off age for female cabin crew candidates is 26, unless she has prior experience. Prior experience includes that from another airline, or a mother coming back after giving birth etc. This was the standard practice, even though it's not in black and white.

Many people will probably know someone (maybe an instructor) who knows someone else from another course who was 27 or older and was accepted without prior experience, but let's not go there. Does anyone personally know somebody who has bucked the trend recently?

general guidlines is defininite..but SIA still does deviate a little from it i guess...like girls who are slightly shorter but acceptable, older but look young...etc.

my batchgirl is 28 when she got in..prior experience is not service line..but she look young and cheerful..so yah...

=p
