Singapore Airlines Interview Process and Stages
by FlyGosh

(Interview with another Stewardess, not my account)

1st stage : Introduction
It was not really an introduction session. During this stage, other than a brief self introduction, we were asked a very random simple question, and the question really varied for each group. For my group, the question was " What is your favorite colour and why ". Thankfully my turn was the second. So I basically had like 2-3 minutes to think. Well, I was shaking, because the question was very random, and I had only few minutes to think for an impressive answer. Despite the anxious, I managed to come up with this answer

" I love red colour because it has the sense of bravery. It is really motivating and inspiring. I look good in red, I know I look good in red. But today I'm not wearing red unfortunately. Erm, and that's all "
Hahahaha tak impressive langsung I know ! I even stuttered as I was really nervous. But at least I did come up with an answer hahaha
The trick : Stay calm, loosen up, and be yourself. You really don't have to kiss their ass with your boring " I love red because it's the colour of SIA " type of answers. Minor hand gestures might help too.

2nd stage : Skin Check
Out of 10, 4 of us managed to get through. Sadly, Yvonne didn't. We did our height and weight meisurement, and proceeded to another room for the skin check. This stage had been haunting me for months, as I have a scar on my neck, and birthmarks on my feet and lower arm. But it was fun though. Thankfully my beautician was a nice, humble, mid-aged lady. I felt at ease lah being checked by her. She asked me to smile, show my hands, and do some walking. I knew I did fine as she didn't ask me with anything.
The trick : CONCEAL YOUR SCARS. That's all.

3rd stage : 1 to 1 interview
All 4 of us passed the skin check. We then proceeded for the next stage. The stages of the interview were all arranged randomly. It wasn't really easy to control all the mixed up feelings that I had. I was excited having my name called out as successful candidate, and at the same time it was nerve-wracking to go to the next stage. For this 1 to 1 interview, I was like shaking to death. There were very few people that got through this stage. Very few. Some of them were very confident with their answers, but still failed. There were 2 bubbly Malay guys, looking very confident. One of them just passed the interview with Emirates. No idea why he's trying SIA. And another one is/was employed by MAS. They didn't stop talking while waiting for their turn. They talked with everyone, except me. They shared stories with everyone, except me. When they both failed the stage, I was kinda happy *evil laugh*

Luckily I had my Chinese friends to share what happened in the interview room. In this stage, we basically were asked on our backgrounds, some knowledge on SIA, and there was also a case study. My interviewer was an elegant gorgeous lady. She didn't torture me much thankfully. I wasn't even asked on SIA knowledge at all. She asked me to explain why would I want to shift from lab to cabin. It was really easy. And my case study was an easy one too. Thing I will never forget is when she said

" In Singapore Airlines, we are looking for honest people to join us. And you are very honest. I can tell that "So yeahh, you read me. I passed the stage wooohoooo !!
The trick : Be prepared. Be honest. Be moderate.Out of my 4 group members, only 2 of us, me and my supportive Chinese male friend, passed the 1 to 1 interview. We then proceeded to the final stage.

4th stage : Management Round
I am not really sure why it is termed as management round. In this round, we were divided into new groups with 6 members in each. My group members were all girls, and I was still the only Malay. There were Katherine, a bubbly mass comm graduate from KL, Teh, a cute lady from Selangor, talkative Suzanna from Penang, she was actually there for a review, there was also a girl who just came back from US, and sweet, humble Ethelynn from Penang. Me, the girl from US, and Ethelynn didn't talk much. Maybe we were too busy filling up the form and thinking on the next round I guess. We started mingling after been acknowledged that the next round will require teamwork hehe. But still, I didn't talk much. I was kinda oblivious I guess.
There were 2 interviewers, looking very smart in their business suits. They asked us to introduce our friend next to us. 

I chose Katheryn because she's been telling a lot of things about her so that will make it easy for me hahaha. After that, we were asked to read an announcement. But to me it was just a passage. Then, they gave us one statement, and asked either we agree or disagree. Of course we will have to discuss it. Fortunately, the statement given was pretty easy. " An apple a day keeps the doctors away ". Every 5 of them chose to agree. I took some time to think on the points as I knew that I have to disagree with the statement. Luckily I managed to come up with some points, thanks to my Degree, that I related it to contamination, and radiation. The session was quite challenging, but the interviewers just knew how to lead us to an interesting and relaxing discussion.
and the result...

When Kak Liza, one of the staffs, announced that all of us passed except 1, I thought it was me. BUT IT WASN'T ! Katheryn didn't make it. We were quite suprised. But there was nothing that we can do 'aite ? 4 of us, excluding Suzanna (since she's in review,she already tried the kebaya during previous interview) made our way to the kebaya round.
The trick : I've read somewhere, always choose to disagree when they give you a statement to discuss. But make sure you have strong points to differ. 

5th stage : Kebaya round
People, it was like the peak of the interview I tell you. We were asked to put on the kebaya, but the top was very small and super-tight. Just like wearing your corset. I thought I was too weighty, but heyy everyone was facing the same issue okay. It was actually a second skin check. We were asked to bend down so that they can check for back acnes and tattoos. My friends' shin part was checked too for scars. But mine wasn't. I guess they might be considering that I am a Malay. We were also asked to stand under the sunlight so that they can check for any visible scars on the face.

3 of us passed the stage. One of us was having back acne problems, so I am not really sure how it went for her. We were given letter for medical check-up which has to be done within a week.
The trick : Minimize the acsessories as you will have to take them off during this round. And if you are busty, it's best to not wear push-up bra because the kebaya top was damn small. It will be a little bit difficult to zip it. Even if you can zip it, you'll have difficulty to breathe hahaha trust me. It was tight, really.I passed the medical test. So basically yes, I am fit enough to join the team.

Cabin Crew Interview Tips by FLYGOSH

As I have mention earlier, a cabin crew job attract thousands of applicants throughout the world. You WILL be competing among the best candidates from freshies, current and ex cabin crew and those with high academic qualification. Though you can join at the minimum age of 18 with a high school certificate, due to demand, airline is increasingly being choosy and give preference to university graduates. A check with Thai airways or Singapore airlines (especially foreign candidate) requires the minimum qualification of a degree holder.

Most people have the impression that by having good looks(though it is a plus point ), you will definitely get the job. Well I can tell you how wrong you are .If you have that impression, you will definitely fail. When airlines recruit, they are looking for someone who can embrace and propel the corporate image of their airline. So you need to be an all rounder especially your communication skills, your grooming, how well you work in a team and your passion towards flying.

So how do you make yourself stand out during the interview itself? The very first thing you have to do is to look presentable. When the interviewers look at you, first impression counts and it is extremely important. So make sure you dress up appropriately. Business attire would be advisable and please,no jeans, miniskirts and etc. For male applicant, wear a suit ( well I did that though I was look at being overdress and a laughing stock among the rest ).

Trust me from the moment you are there, you are being observed all the time. The way you speak, how you interact with others and how you carry yourself. Don’t be over confident as that can leave the impression that you are being arrogant. Be friendly, polite and courteous to both your interviewer and fellow candidates.
Your knowledge of the airline and that of the flight attendant job role will provide a great reference base upon which to be able to naturally answer any questions. By answering the question base on your experience, you’ll be able to provide consistecy and accuracy in your answers without fabrication.
Key thing is to do your homework and read up as much as possible about the airline that you are applying such as their history, the planes they fly and their destinations. 

Below are samples of question you maybe ask:

Why do you want to become a cabin crew?
Why should we hire you over other candidates?
What is your weakness ?

      Secrets of a Stewardess: Paint you own Portrait or Surprise your Friends and Family? The Perfect Gift Idea of all Special Occasions!

      Paint Me Real (USA)
      The Perfect Gift Idea for all Special Occasions
      *Personal Potraits, Wedding Potraits, Family Potraits, Graduation Potraits etc.

      I'm really happy to introduce to you a Portrait Painting website called Paint Me Real. They have been painting portraits since 1987. They are really happy to start their new online platform, whereby we are able to upload our favourite digital photos and have them handpainted at a very affordable price. My home family portrait cost me around SGD$3500 to be painted by a professional painter. I'm surprised that paintings only start from only USD$80 onwards.

      Most importantly, it is hassle-free! Just a few clicks or a button, you will have your personalized oil canvas painting at your door step in 2-4 weeks time.

      Paint Me Real - This website provides personal portraits, wedding portraits, couple portraits, family portraits, graduation portraits, even animal portraits services. As long as you have 1 face, its considered a one person portrait. If you have a digital image of yourself with your lovely puppy dog, that's considered a 2 faces/person(s) portrait.

      I had quite a few of my portraits done by this website. Their standard of painting is amazing, it looks really realistic. No wonder, its called Paint Me Real. It looks like a real person popping out from the oil canvas painting.

      I am really happy to have my digital photo being hand-painted so well. It took them around 4 weeks to have my portrait painted and sent to my office. I chose to have "Registered Shipping", that's adding another USD$20 to my shipment. I prefer to be safe than sorry. I would like to know that my parcel will arrive properly at my door step without any worries or further hassle.

      SPECIAL PROMO CODE: " lovesara " to enjoy 20% discount off all portrait paintings.

      I also painted another picture, of my very good stewardess girlfriend.

      This is how the website works

      Step 1: Upload your digital image, and select the number of person(s) in the photo.

      Step 2: Choose your oil canvas painting size. I would recommend you to paint a A3 size image. Not too small, not too big. 

      Step 3: Fill in your billing & shipping information. Choose your shipping mode, and key in your special promo code: " lovesara " to enjoy 20% discount off all portrait paintings.

      This was how the painting looks like, it was a perfect friendship gift! My girlfriend Rachel loved it! has a Facebook Page with many other portraits done, please "LIKE" their page to see other paintings. Reviews are available too!
