Panel interview meaning you made it to the last round already?

But wow. Ok tough decision. Wouldn't want to be in your shoes right now. I suppose you will need to decide on which career you are more interested in then. Because with ICA now under MHA too, the pay/rank structure should be the same. Therefore, I think you need to see which job scope interests/suits you most.

I think if you want to work more regular hours than SPF would probably be a better option, since shift work is involved with ICA. To my knowledge, SPF allows you to, for the SO position at least, rotate between the police post/HQ/investigation during your two year bond. This allows you to get an idea of what type of role you prefer and then decide where to go. Whereas with ICA, you are pretty much required to start at the checkpoints.

yup im at the last round of interviews for SPF. 4 stages of interview is insane for any job.. ICA have already offered me a place.

My heart lies with SPF but my head tells me ICA. Im a huge fan of shift work so im ok with both working environments. ICA will allow me more personal time with family, and for self. SPF first five years seems like i will have to slog it out. Not sure if i want to spend so much time on work. Want to travel the world and invest time on things i never got to do while younger.

Hello all, just wanna highlight that ICA and SPF are not under the same scheme. SPF/Singapore Prison Service/Civil Defence they are under Home Team Uniform Service (HUS) while ICA is under Home Affairs Services (HAS). Differences would be in pay/NS Obligation and Retirement Age. HUS higher pay, no reservist obligation and lower retirement age.

Anyway, just to check if anybody knows what's a daily jobscope like for SO? I understand they will handle "special case" n manage specialists. Otherwise not sure what other things will they do.

Well, don't give up. You can always apply again if you really want to join. I did not hear anything from them the first time too.

This thread has helped me prepare a lot so I thought I'd share as well.

Here's my process/timeline.
20th august - apply online (then applied again on 4 sept cause I was restless haha)
4 sept - received email to submit docs
8 sept - submit docs. (No interview really, just ask questions based on your form to verify you wrote correctly)
9 sep - received email to come down for interview
11 sept - interview

I'm a pretty shy, considered introverted, person so I made sure to prepare myself for the interview.
They ask me to introduce myself and why I applied to ica.
I started by mentioning that my father's friend works at ica and told me about it and then kena shoot lol. Like what did he tell me about it that made me want to apply. They will question all your replies. Whatever you say will be used against you basically. Just be confident in what you say and be receptive to whatever the interviewer tells you. They really ask me about why I wanna apply and the reasons so I think you should really prepare for this question. I didn't even get to talk about myself cause she focus on the ica thing.
Then they ask if I have any questions and I asked her what are the challenges of the job and she was like, you dont know the challenges??? I said I meant from her personal view but she turned it around and ask me what I think will be the challenges. Just smile and answer haha.
I also asked about the 8 week training which should be a safe won't be kena shoot question.
Honestly I was smiling a lot during the interview and quite enjoyed myself. It was fun haha. Like a debate. Just keep an open mind and don't stress about it.
Then again, I may think I did fine but who knows how they feel. Fingers crossed.
