Questions they asked me after failing the interviews

Usually after the SIA the cabin crew interview, I'd received lots of emails from wannabes who did not have much success (there is another interview in Singapore on 6 May 2017).
Some of the emails really amused me. They asked me things like "why did I failed huh?".." I have watched your YouTube videos and read some of your tips over the internet but I still failed.why?".. "I thought I did very well but why SIA boot me ?". Some even paid me for the next "Talks" when I've not even advertise the date. Others decided to buy my e-guides immediately after failing the interviews.

Frankly, I wish I have the answers as to why these people failed the interview. I could just guess as to why they didn't make it. The following are my some of my thoughts on the matter:
  • Don't have the looks of a cabin crew.
  • Can't speak proper English or speak too softly that interviewers could not hear.
  • Too bossy or domineering type.
  • Too skinny or too fat.
  • Boastful.
  • Overconfident.
  • Not properly groomed.
  • Has BO or BB.
  • Does not have the minimum height and educational qualification.
  • Bad skin.
  • Having visible tattoo and scars.
  • Simply unlucky.
  • Looking "oldish".
  • Uneven or unsightly teeth
The list could go on and on. My advice is to try again or get a copy of my guide (not the free one) and attend my "Talks".

I accompanied my friend who had just finished SPM last year to an Air Asia interview but she got rejected on the spot because of her height. She met all the requirements except the height.

Now she's doing Engineering at a local institution.

My friend has a face and body of a model but she was rejected. So I'm sure you're right about the height thing.

Erm... please enlighten me. How can a shorty have the body of a model?

Minus the heightlah.really pretty except the height and short by 1 cm only, mind you. Height is very important for crew wannabes,no compromise.

Standards of the newer crew are dropping, most come onboard without manners, some even think the senior crew owes them a living. In STC, some even look at me from top to bottom a few times and walked away. Makes me wonder if it's really that difficult now to get thru the interview.

Reality is here.. said...

They act & wayang where its most needed, and rewarded.
There is no respect for "seniors".. who are are still flying
by the grace of AMs, sexc etc.

They wont wayang for you.
You are insignificant. irrelevant.

To current crew above,

SQ have to be lenient a bit because Malaysian hopefuls for example have many options now (budget and mid east) and there aren't enough locals applying.

How times have change.

With shorter stays in all the cities, and with
earnings only from flying per hour, its little
wonder why there are fewer applicants ( with better aptitudes ).

It becomes just another job to earn an income.
Very little incentive to stay too.

You can boast about LON, JFK, DME but its pretty hollow if you
cannot stay long enough to enjoy the stops.
Good for the company... new blood to suck everytime!
