SQ cabin crew interview

Last interview was held on 14 April and now 5 weeks later there will be one on 19 May 2012. I am talking about the interviews in S'pore.
Sure there are also coming interviews in Malaysia, HK, China and other countries.
It looks like SIA is the only airline in the world that recruit cabin crew so very often. Do you know why?
It may due to its expansion program that entails it to recruit more crew. But I suspect it is more due to it high resignation rate. But then why those once upon a time eager beavers who was dying to be cabin crew with SIA now decide to leave prematurely??
Is it due to it's salary structure for the cabin crew or is it due to low morale?
I hope that crew could provide us the answers. As for the management, it would not respond as it does not recognize my blog as a mouth piece for the airline.

BT, do you know how much does a crew earn on average after graduating from sia training sch these days?

Boh Tong said...

Between 3 and 4k.

Crew are demoralised bcos management is taking advantage of the weakness of the union and punishes them for the slightest wrongdoings. I am resigning soon too. Good luck to SIA.

Its not SQ

Its the individuals that create an environment of distrust.

The elderly ones are perpetuating that climate by grooming younger ones to report on each other and bring chaos.

You know who they are.

Leave when you can.. or else be entrapped and get sacked.

Meanwhile: Dont be smart alec.. follow the book.
( even though its really stupid)

Sometimes being an *** cabin crew is like being in the imperial palace in the ancient dynasty of east asia. The junior crew are the lower grade prince and princesses and the senior crew are the consorts of the court. Just think of the serial My Fair Princess aka Huan Zhu Ge Ge. If we were to work with people like Ling Fei, it will be an enjoyable flight. But most of the time, we work with people like the empress and Nanny Rong. I'm not surprised most of us wanna leave the imperial palace.

For the commoners, it seems like a privilege to be in the palace. But those who are inside know how it is like. Seniority is EVERYTHING that matters. The colour of your attire decide whether you can speak or you just follow orders.

Sad but true

For degree holders, the salary is not competitive.

Within 5 years, a uni grad can climb to managerial level and above and command 4.9-5k and higher while the SQ girl's pay is stagnated at 3-4k for the entire 5 years unless she gets promoted. Sure the perks of flying are great but nobody wants to work for an organization that can't guarantee you proper long term employment.

kick the present union out and get alan tan back.crew's issues will be addressed.management will stop dishing out more punitive initiatives.morale will go up and crew will do the work and ranking will then move upwards.

and the rest of his dogs have also perfected the art of disappearance. toni is only king to L SS .

Very senior idiot... said...

It takes a very special breed to remain in CC.

The style of management is most unpleasant: demerit points and 360 degrees.

This style does not support innovative and dedicated customer care.

Whenever you feel that a certain approach is good for your customer, think carefully again before doing it. If nothing bad comes out of it, you may repeat it again.

But be warned: all smart alecs will eventually be penalised. You will NOT GET any ACKNOWLEDGEMENT for any of these efforts.

Don't believe?

Check with your more senior friends...

Some have put in 30 years, only to be sunk for offloading newspaper...

Enjoy the time there, but leave before the virus hits you.

You have been warned... believe in history.. it will be repeated.

I honestly think that for the betterment of crew, Tony and his team should throw in the towel.They will be doing CC a big favor and will be more respected, rather than being aloof and when asked "I dont know" will be the answer.

This will be the most respectable and the right thing to do.

Let whoever take over do damage control.

Which office wants toni to step aside? Please make yourself clear.

LOL.Hope long long.Give up the $3000 monthly allowance?Who give a s**t about crew as long as the wallet is fat.Just stay put until elected out.

Thats one thing that even cabin crew management agrees this union is worst than BEN and CO.Infighting almost immediately after taking office.

Funny I am reading these. You guys sure are entertaining. It is either all of you have retired, or not kept abreast in the company or maybe just living in your world of dreams. Stir stir stir. All talk no do! Sigh!
