Tips on How to Prepare for SIA Cabin Crew Interview

SIA Cabin Crew Interview

Sarong kebaya, red nails, a neat bun and a mega-watt smile.

As a young girl, I used to aspire to be one of those poised SQ girls clad in the iconic kebaya – to be part of the crew, and to globe-trot for a living. To many around me, it was but a high-class waitressing job; to me, it was an esteemed desire to provide world-class service in Singapore Airlines, and an opportunity to see the world.

When I finally turned nineteen, I mustered all the courage i had, and together with two other girlfriends, we went for the SIA cabin crew interview. So what is it that the interviewers at Singapore Airlines look out for, and what qualities must you possess to be recruited? We were as clueless as you might be now.

Honestly, there is no one manual that will provide model answers and step-by-step guides on how to ace the many rounds of interviews, but there is a certain formula and things to adhere to. Here, I share with you 8 tips on how to prepare for SIA cabin crew interview based on my own experience, alongside stories from many other friends who are part of the prestige cabin crew team.


Fly Scoot from Singapore to Sydney


Doing something for the first time is always a special moment. Like reading Harry Potter for the first time; finally seeing your idol in person; tasting foie gras when you have no idea what the alien-looking thing is; or trying skydiving for the very first time. They are life changing experiences that make you go “oh my God”, and they are memories that will stay with you for a very long time.

Joining Scoot on their inaugural flight from Singapore to Sydney, is definitely one of those memorable life experiences. For those who don’t know, Scoot (a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines) is a new low cost carrier which operates on medium and long-haul routes to destinations like Sydney, Gold Coast, Tianjin, and Bangkok.

Travelling is the perfect time for us to discover ourselves. A simple getaway can do wonders for your soul. With prices of airline tickets falling faster than a soufflé, everyone should go for a holiday. Besides cheap flights from budget airlines, there are also occasional promotions from some of the best airlines in the world.

I’ll cut to the chase. While “stalking” airline websites, I saw some special offers from Singapore Airlines (SIA) which include cities in Asia like Beijing, Ho Chi Minh City, and Osaka. I’m really tempted by the flight promotions to Bangkok, Taipei, and Tokyo!!!

Singapore Airlines Flight from Singapore to Shanghai

Singapore to Shanghai

I have been traveling a lot recently, and it gives me a new perspective about everything.

Each time I visit a new airport, I can’t help but to compare it with Singapore Changi Airport. The outcome is always the same — very few airports in the world can match Singapore Changi Airport in terms of efficiency and facilities. I think many of us always take things for granted; we complain about this, and grumble about that. But we are very fortunate to be living in one of the finest cities in the world.
