U will need to find the DO in advance if u do nit wish to do ot. Also i heard that its much easier to take leave as your DO will find cover for u unlike Cisco.

What about SATS APO?I went to the interview and their working hrs is only, 8hrs. Anything exceeded is consider overtime but they have hybrid shift.

Depend on how fast the police work. Can take up to 3 weeks or more.

How long it takes to approved the PLRD License?

I heard SATS also outsource their training to conduct at Cisco, if so then super relieved.

Sats and cisco also have. I heard sats assignment are mostly on the east side, especially changi airport.

If u get airport assignment, u shouldnt worry too much as their job requirement is not as stringent as cisco.

Hi everyone, first time posting here. I'm really interested in getting a job as auxiliary police officer but not sure which co. to choose. Heard Aetos was better until someone here mentioned that the working hours are longer than Certis. Is it a must for us to work OT? Also, what about holiday compensation? Do we get to work less hours for that particular month? (let's say 12 hrs less for each holiday?)

I'm also thinking of signing on as Aetos Insp but I'm a female and only planning to work for about 1.5 years to earn enough for my uni fees (currently a dip holder). Right now I have Police Officer Basic Course Cert from SPF, will my chances of getting Insp be higher? Also will there be a bond to serve for Aetos Insp? I couldn't find it anywhere from their website.

Thanks in advance if anyone could answer me

Regardless if you are a PO or SO with SPF, you still needs to be train & assess in WSQ in order to become an APF PO or SO.

There are so many VSC PO, Ex-NSF PO & Ex-Regular PO from SPF, so you are nothing special to even consider for SO(APF) position in Ateos or other APF Organizations. The only way to increase your chance in Ateos is to have a Degree especially a good Hons Degree (1st class or 2nd upper class) since majorly of SO (APF) applicants are Degree holder. So if you want to have a better chance, join PO instead of SO in Ateos since you are only a Diploma holder. But if you want to join as PO, I will advice you to sign up with Cisco as direct SGT since Ateos do not have that.

I don't call it a bond but rather employment contract. If you fail to pass out from course as P/Insp, you needs to pay liquidated damages. If you fail to be promoted from P/Insp to Insp (1) after 1 year of service, you needs to pay liquidated damages.

Let just say you will encounter to be force to work OT & have bad schedule for shift work. As PO, you will get OT pay & get signing bonus. As SO, you will not get OT pay & no such thing as signing bonus.

Depending on your unit. For cisco daily ot after your working hours is not a must. But ot on public holiday and on one of your off day is a must do.

When you are approached by your colleagues to cover them (on your off days) when they want to take annual leave, its up to u.

You will be paid if you are a po.

Its not a good career option. These companies are no different from other sme. Low pay and long working hours.

Their leave system only make it difficult to take leave and force u into longer working hours.

Talking how much they care for their employees, its all talk only since its not going to cost them anything. Giving u some free lunch during holiday period like damn big dua kee just to make u feel better.

I see, thanks everyone for your insight!

Thx for the reply.
I went to AETOS for the interview juz now b4 11am and they do have direct intake for unarmed outriders. After the interview, I went straight to their authorized clinic to do a simple medical check up. Now at clementi polyclinic waiting to do chest X-ray.
As informed, security clearance takes up to 3-4weeks b4 i can know if i'm selected. No ippt & firearms training required. 8 weeks in-camp training, book out on friday & book in on sunday evening. Allowance less than half of the salary during training. Bond for 1 year after completion of training.
Hi may i know how much is the joining bonus for Aetos? and how how is the pay out structure? For Cisco joining bonus is 15k for poly diploma holders, paid out 5k/yr for 3 yrs of service. 1st 5k u'll receive after u complete training (abt 2mths) , 2nd 5k in e 2nd yr, n 3rd 5k in e 3rd yr of service. For non diploma holders joining bonus is 10k, 2k in 1st yr, 4k in 2nd yr, 4k in 3rd yr.

Was told by e recruitment officer in Cisco tt during e 2 mths of APO training, u're paid 1480/mth. After passing out, basic salary is 2575/mth for cpl and 2600/mth for sgt, xcluding OT, which is abt $20/hr. APO r required to put in working hrs 223hrs/mth.

Was told tt an avg APO draws a monthly gross of abt 3.4k-3.9k. Anyone can verify this figure? Cos its very close to what most working in typical jobs with a variable wage component r getting...which doesn't quite adds up, since their basic pay (usually below 2k) n OT rate is considerably lower, n put in similar total amt of OT hrs/mth?
