Hey wawaa…wawaa wrote:Hi Woodstock,
yes! there's defintely Malaysians who travel all the way for the walk-in. I did come across some, either they drive down on a 1 day affair or stay over at a relative place. Don't worry for the age, if they like u n find u pleasent age doesnt matter. And never give up tryin to those who really wish to pursue flying coz me myself I lost count on how many times I tried way back in 2003 but comfortably I guess 8 times n I finally got tru with Deenah n eveningstar yest! And I still find find it hard to believe...haha.
Oh yah for the benefit of those trying this comin walk-in, I'll just share wif u guys my experience n wat to expect at each round. Actually this 8 tries n the experience I got with Emirates intv as well has helped me a lot to improve n get myeslf prepared but despite tat I'm always nervous..
Round 1 (Group intro): Frankly speaking at this round i never knoe how they select the girls. I just got this intuition tat first impression counts n most importantly they r attracted to u either ur personality or image. And luck plays a lot here!! SOme ppl who speaks badly still got tru or how sloppish u dress in tubes or slippers still move on to the next round. One impt thing to those who tried many2 times, PLEASE STATE THE DATES in the application form u previously applied, this will really help u to escalate to the next round. Tats what I did, basically they knoe tat ur determine n tats wat I always did. NO BRACES n SPECATACLES plsss.Dont share ur grandfather stories...or talk rubbish n not even selling urself too hard. Keep it short n simple. Nowadays they like givin the girls a topic to share like during mine..Whats ur views on plastic surgery n which part of u wld u go for one?
Passing rate: Most of the time 3 or 4 ot of 10
Round 2 (Kebaya fitting): This has always been my killer round. Most of the time I got cut here n the furthest I got frm all the previous tries. Frm my experience n observation those girls who got skin problem like acne scars....weird walking, scar (as long as its not very obvious) on the visible parts of the kebaya etc usually got cut here. PLs walk gracefully, NO CATWALKING! Walk naturally. u got to haf pleasent skin need not be perfect. I always got cut here previously due to my facial skin, I never had a flawless one (always havin breakouts, white n balckheads) back in those yrs so I spent quite a bomb to improve my skin condition (my skin r cleared took 6mths for this). I even put on braces years ago to fix up my crooked teeth.Knowing tat I did all this for the sake of this job, told myself I cannot give up.
Passing rate: 3 or 4 out of 10 but during mine 8/10 the highest ever I've seen.
Round 3 (One-to-One): This is an easy stage but still u get eliminated! U just need to talk n talk, show ur enthusiasm n hide ur nervousness. Smile a lot! Being v.quiet n reserved doesnt help coz ur outta there immediately.
They will just ask u questions why u wana be a fs, ur hobbies, abt ur job experience.
Passing rate: Mostly 1 or 2 only got cut out.
Round 1 - 3 all done during the same day of the walk-in.
Round 4: (Water confidence test): Easy round as well but there is still elimination! Passing rate usually quite high here. Those who cant swim no worries there is a life jacket n u'll still make it tru. Just tat NEVER EVER hesitant to jump down its an immediate failure! N those who got cut usually becoz thery r either too skinny or too heavy. Skin check is done here but very quick one they just wana look for any visible tatoos.
Passing rate: MIne was 10/11. usually only a few got cut here.
Round 5: (Mgt intv): AS been discussed here, this is actually the killer round coz they slashed out quite a lot usually half. Please be in FORMAL attire with collared top n tailored pants. Put on light make up n shoes with heels. First impression counts n u wdnt want to get cut becoz of ur attire. Need not bun up ur hair just tie up will do. For me I find this intv very informal, chit-chat session with the 2 interviewers in the rm. Almost the same ting with round 3, u got to smile n smile! Show ur enthusiasm again, give a lot of gd qualities abt urself which u can contribute to flying but never lead on to being boastful. They will ask u things like how long u intend to fly n wats ur future plans...ur family..touched on ur job experience which relates to customer service...how u keep fit n wat wld u do if u dont get this job. It all depends on ur experience lah..diff ppl gets diff sets of questions. BUt frm wat I noticed during my mtg intv, those who r inside the rm for quite sometime usually got tru n those who had short quick ones, they r eliminated. Guess the longer ones they r interested to know more abt u. If u got cut here, u can only apply again after 6 mths! which is a long wait for ppl like me who's getting older
Passing rate: 5/9
So wen ur done wit the mtg intv, head straight for medical chkup either on the same day or next day and SIA will contact u within 2 wks to inform u the next step. One of the girls who went wit me (eveningstar) her blood pressure shoot up! Pls be calm ...relax guess she was too nervous. This cld jeopardise ur medical report.
Wen I learned tat I got tru the mtg intv...frankly speakin I didnt knoe whether to be excited or not...my mood turned of wen the malay lady gave me some remarks on my make up n looking old. WHen I saw her walking out of the intv rm witout any pc of paper in her hands, I tot ok Im gone! I was then called up by her n she gave me some comments. SHe told me tat I almost didnt get it...which she suspects tat I look older than my age...she said my make up is so wrong, hair makes me old almost everything on my face was wrong!! So the excitement was gone on the spot. SHe told me to cut my hair short n improvised on my make up. Actualy I'm fine wit cutting my hair but make up? Arent we gona be trained n taught how to put on proper? I was taken aback coz things like this esp the physical aspect it can be CHANGED most imptly the qualities n personality u haf to possessed to be in this line. She was then tellin me u got to expect this kind of things wen ur a fs else u get grounded! Gosh I haven even started n Im getting all this oredi. But I guess okla nice of her to give me some constructive advices at least I knoe where I go wrong.
So to those tryin...I hope this is very2 useful. I really wish to help n motivate those who tried many2 times...tell urself never give up n always2 go for every walk-in ...it helps u to be better.Gd luck!!
