Update: 5.14pm 29/06/10 The latest updates will be posted at the bottom
There has been a spike in my site especially with searches on MAS cabin crew interviews in the past 2 weeks. I have replied mails and messages regarding the questions being asked. But for the benefit of future visitors to this site, i would post up a few more information on top of what i have written last year regarding “What Does It Take to Become a MAS Air Stewardess“.
I would use the most recent comment by Michael Sibinal who was asking on behalf of his daughter, as a guide to those who seek similar answers.
a) Can she apply through this website (http://satkuru.com/…)?
Sadly you can’t You would have to go thru the proper channel via their main website
b) When is the next intake?
The next walk in interview is in fact tmr, Saturday 20st of March 2010 for the ladies and for the guys, it will be on the 21st. Please check the above mentioned website for future updates.
c) Does MAS has its own training center for successful applicants or MAS engages a 3rd party to conduct the
MAS has their own training center in Kelana Jaya. Certain part of the course would involve external personals, eg. grooming, etc. where they would be brought to the training center itself.
d) How long does it take? (I heard around 3 months….??)
Yeap, approximately 3 months
e) What’s the fee like?
I am not really sure frankly, i don’;t think there’s a fee as you would be bonded for a few years. You would have to double check on this
f) Does the successful candidate get a certificate of competency, et al., at the end of the course?
I know there’s a graduation ceremony for those whom are successful.
g) Where do they (students) stay?
That’s a good question but unfortunately i am not sure of that either. Probably around Kelana Jaya area.
