Singaporean applying for job at RWS has to pay entrance fee to enter swimming pool for test
Posted by temasektimes on June 8, 2012
I applied for a job at the soon to be opened marine life park position for a managerial position., I went for a swim test in April (which RWS called me to go at last min, and which I have to pay the entrance fee to enter queenstown swimming pool) and also a interview at a CC the next week (actually it was more like a RWS mass recruitment session).
After enduring the RWS briefing and waiting for my turn, the interviewer (actually a life guard) said that RWS senior managers were not available to interview me and he (lifeguard) will interview me (applying for a managerial position instead). To date I have receieved no reply from RWS on the status of my application.
This is the sorry state of our affairs. Big firms may not be prioritizing Sporeans for their hires and they don’t care a hoot about the rank-and-file Sporeans who are actively seeking jobs.
