For aetos, what is the career progression like if you have a degree?

Also for aetos, they got their own investigate team like SPF or they just stand around like security guards?
If I am not wrong, most positions are meant for Diploma holders etc. You can still apply with a degree but if you accept a Diploma position then your pay will be compromise.

No, I mean oversupply of applicants but limited job positions in the near future.

Everyone know that economy is bad and healthcare industry is a grooming industry. If you join now, you may not needs any relevant qualification for those entry low blue collar positions that I listed out. But when jobs become limited and everyone want to have a piece of pie, organizations will raise the bar and may start to required one to have WSQ relevant qualification related to your occupation.
Agreed. Thanks for the insight bro.

You need to calculate other critical factors.

Minimum hours per month? Max hours per shift?
OT rate per hour?
Other allowances? Condition to reduce or forfeit these allowance?

Do note that APF Inspector job is not simply a walk in the park. Is very different & tougher than what you think. You need to balance the regulatory, your customer & your men which are always in conflict with each other. Often you work alone with minimal or no guidance/mentor ship. Suggest have an APF SO discuss you more the job before applying.

Your HR only 'interview' during your walk in and arrange another day to have an interview with SO like INSP (most likely your superior) for SGT & below position. So it is very easy to get in and the rest will depend on medical checkup & security screening by SPF.

For INSP position, you will needs to be selected for interview with their board of interviewer which consist of AETOS APF Commander, AETOS Training Academy Commandant and a few big shot like HR. The rest will depend on medical checkup & security screening by SPF.

Plasticgoat2012, I agree with Blowpipe.

I will not touch on the scope of work and advice you to discuss with APF Senior Officer (SO) if you have the opportunity.

INSP have transport reimbursement but do not have joining bonus and OT pay. So your men will have more gross salary than you every month but APO (SI & below) do not have much valuable experience (selling points) if they are aiming for higher/top security management position for MNCs.

Your career advancement will start from P/INSP and will only be up to DSP cause SUPT & above are mostly airborne from SPF or other uniform group by 'government arrangement' for various reasons. AETOS only take in INSP but they recognized Polytechnic Diploma and Private Degree. Certis Cisco take in INSP but needs to have Local Degree or Commission Officer (SAF) / SO (SPF/SCDF) status. In Certis Cisco, they can hire your directly and convert you to DSP(APF) if you are selected for opening position like Commanding Officer and you are a NS MAJ(SAF/SCDF) .

End day, you SO experience is valuable if you are aiming for higher/top security management position for MNCs in Singapore or other countries such as SHELL.

APF SO jobs are not easy. Need to answer to many parties. For Company C, SO practice job rotations ie ASP (SOC), Insp (OC)..often rotate out of your BU after 1-2 years..in fact, I believe they are eager to rotate out coz is physically & mentally drained out answering ot the same **** everyday 24/. For Company A & S, normally their SOs are still stay for quite sometime until they are needed somewhere else.

Else after 1-2 years is also a relinquishing time for many SOs. When they join initially, they like wearing their SO Uniforms posing selfie around. However, many end up dumping their SO uniforms at a corner when they resign.

IMHO, unless you are a commissioned officers from uniform groups whereby you are already addicted to wearing SO ranks else better just come in enjoy life as normal APO. You will stay and live longer.

Most or if not all APF SO only used ASP or Insp as a stepping stone to climb up their career ladder. They do not intend stay long ie 1-2 years only. APF SO job sucks even though on paper APF ranks are supposed to be equivalent SPF ranks.

Feedback to Higher Management or HR above matter (provided if they even care at all).

I will advice you just look for Aetos or other organizations if you are interested to remain in this industry and you do not have and bond. As for bonus, please forget about it!


I am working for Cisco for about 8 months and my posting is in tuas but I stay in eunos. There are no chance for me to change the posting at all. I still have a family to feed and I cannot afford to lose this job. Anybody knows how?

P/INSP (1st year), INSP(1) (2nd year), INSP(2) (Very unlikely promoted to this rank on your 3rd year). So if only aiming to stay 1 or 2 year in APF industry, you will only be INSP(1) and not much of value compare to ASP & above.
