Hey,

How do you know this is me? LOL. I think I faintly remember you. I am so proud of you for getting this far and you're right never ever give up! Do you know if the other girl who got in with us managed to pass the 1-1 interview? What do you mean by treating the interviewer too casually? That's quite strict! Did you get a girl or a guy? I got a girl.


haha...i'm sure its you!! I remember ur name...u were wearing green. The other gal didnt get in either ... my bf and fren was sitting outside and they saw she left empty-handed. Her interview also ended earlier den mine although we went in at the same time... Lol, i treated her like a fren (you can say that) and i guess when i talk w/ my frens, i use singlish... haha... i was soooo nervous and the interviewer was soooo friendly that i started to leak out my singlish... >.< my interviewer was wearing specs and mine's a gal too.. .


Yup yup that was me. I was quite surprised the girl that was in my group, the dancer girl who looked jap did not make it through the kebaya test! She had that SQ look, very pretty tall and leggy too. So I dunno why she would not pass the kebaya fitting!

Yeah u you guys went in 1st den I went in next rite? how long did your interview take? Mine was fast! Like 15 minutes? Haha, nvm next recruitment in 2 months time! All the best!! :)

a little background (although i have posted somewhere before)...I applied to SQ interview before in 2004...and I managed to pass all the rounds except the speech test..( I guess I was too nervous)...

and I went for the walk in on 3rd June and did not even make it through the first round..(so what if I have customer service and knowledge of a 3rd language)..haiz...i guess it really depends on luck..

what Im disappointed is that.the interviewers are so young....it seems to me that they are not looking out for potential FA but rather someone they like..

seems that its really getting harder to get into SQ because a lot of ppl are applying and SQ can afford to be choosy..

I've read about some of the height problems that some of you've experience..I believe if its 3 yrs ago..they would have let you passed..

so basically...i feel SQ are getting very choosy..because they know that there will always be ppl who are going to apply..

I am getting a bit disappointed because I believe I have what it takes to be a FA (i hope I don't sound proud),why I said this is because the reason why I managed to pass through so many rounds (in 2004) is because they have seen the potential and qualities in me.

And yet I couldnt make it on sun just because the interviewers on that day doesnt like my look?(could be due to other reasons I know)..

haiz...sorry for the long post and the ranting...just want to let off some steam...

:? :( :( :( :(



Hi Jade,

Dont give up... I have tried a few times too... every time it's a diff experience and entry level... Not giving up too... In fact, I am determine to know what and which area went wrong for me... It motivates me further :)

Jia You!!!


hey jade, dun give up.. i have a friend flying now who know of this girl who tried 8 times and made it... in her class there's one who is 28 yrs old... if you're not 28 yet u still have so many chances to try again..

Heard emirates because it is not subjected to tax. But you would need to be based in Dubai. :)

Emirates pay you in USD...So you get around 7000 USD per month..But you have tp be based in Dubai as what DeeeNah said..

have a question to ask on suitcase/luggage - for those already flying, what is the size that you will recommend? e.g. how many inches.. understand tt there're those ~2-3 day trips, while the longest is ~1 week from the "flying roster" thread.

SIA will only give us the blue handbag right? heard tt the small black bag w trolley has to be bgt too. not sure if i'm correct..

Also... is there a standard colour (black?)? din find answers to these qns in the various threads.. thought it'll be a good time to buy now while the GSS is on! :)

thanks!
