SIA to recruit & train intern cabin crew from polys

SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines (SIA) is working closely with three polytechnics to recruit and train cabin crew, as part of efforts to attract the best talent.

It has special programmes with Nanyang Polytechnic, Republic Polytechnic and Temasek Polytechnic, covering recruitment activities.

It's also starting an internship-recruitment programme to hire and train selected students to become full-time cabin crew.

BT: Do you think the internship is a good idea? Will it produces good crew?

Not a wise decision by SIA as the interns like the cadet cces would be snobs. Will also create a class division amongst the cc. SIA has run out of idea.

Why not huh? These ppl are studying hospitality and so are passionate about serving ppl. They will make better cc than those who wanna be cc just for the $$ and travel. Gambatte!

She was from Shatec lah. She reported sick for her turnaround flt to celebrate her birthday back in SIN with her BF and so the company extended her probation 6 months.

Speaks volume about her commitment and dedication as a crew.

These days nobody cares lah, everyone is working for $$$ only.
SIA looking for cheap labour lah, when you are on contract you dont care.

not good idea. these interns will prob treat it as something fun and not take it seriously. cc who apply as full timers are prob more professional and serious since this is their job and they will have considered carefully before signing the contract.

Taking interns will cost Boh Tong his job as a presenter at SIA CC seminar. Lesser wannabes will be employed from the outsiders and that means Boh Tong will not be having many participants at his seminar.
