That's very fast.

All the best.
Thanks. I heard from the HR that July is the actual training so I guess that's why?

Second round of interview meaning after the document submission? This is the panel interview then?

Good luck. I will be going for mine on Thursday.
Thanks. Gd luck to you too (Y)

Tomorrow 930am? Me too Good Luck to both of us!
Yup. Gd luck (Y)

Talking

It was pretty str8 forward for my experience
Usually the first question from the is either introduce yourself or what do you know about ICA or Do you know what ICA does?

From there depending on what you answer, questions will start branching out from there mostly related to yourself e.g past work experience, do you know our shift timing, your qualification, why choose ica, your physical fitness, ok with long distance travel? etc etc mostly about yourself and then how keen are you about joining ica

hope this helps

Quite interested in ICA specialist position
Some questions on its working hours and leave/allowances matters

I understand ICA specialist work cyclic shifts
Morning - 0800hrs to 1500hrs,Afternoon - 1500hrs to 2200hrs,Night - 2200hrs to 0800hrs

-On top of the basic take home monthly salary, are there any shift allowances(night) or other incentives?
-Are there additional allowances if workday fall on public holiday?
-is there any differences in applying annual leave on night shift workday since the shift hours differ(morning/afternoon is 7 working hours and night is 10 working hours)?

Thanks

So we work every 3 days shift and one day off?

And what are the job scopes we're doing, i doubt is just sitting down there and chop passports for all year long. Is the job very stressful?
And how's the increment like? How long you will be promote and rise in salary.
I heard from my friend in ica, junior officers can entitle to OT pay. If your performance is poor, your rank will be stuck for long. Just like in the SAF.

for normal team is mm, nn, o, aa, o

job scope got different types. most of the time initially just sit down chop passports, even for senior officers.
after sometime maybe can go to different job like check car. check lorry, anti smuggling & profiling, etc.
last time increment is fixed. now I heard they go by performance. better officers get higher increment, though not by much.
check with your friends in ica. they should have clearer picture.
my info may be outdated.
anyway I heard joining and retention bonus is quite a lot.
