i went to sign letter of appointment today. i find a lot of information was lacking. if any ICA officer in here is reading this, maybe you could help clear my air of doubt.

- i was given a contract scheme while some of the others are given permanent. why so and what's the difference?

- i have a higher nitec, according to the pay scheme, im a corporal drawing about $1540 but why am i getting lesser than the amout stated in the website? this also applies to all my new found friends.

unfortunately for me, i missed these few details when i signed on the line. you can say i just 'sold' myself.

Currently there are 2 types. Contract 2 years , and Permanent.

For pay wise , leave entitlement and benefits are the same.

Except that those on Contract basis , are subjected to 2years in service. In which that should they find insatisfactory performance , they can terminate u or not renew your contract at the end of 2 years.

If i am not wrong , the pay have been revised for the newer batches due to a paycut for the government sector. Due to the economic slowdown.

Welcome to the club!

There is little difference between contract and perm. Just put in your part for the job and you will be perm eventually.

As for the pay, $1540 is with NS no doubt, but sometimes it varies depend on your ns vocation. Maybe u can ask Vital Org to find out more.

It does not mean that you are INSP or ASP and you can apply leave easier. Actually INSP and ASP does the same jobscope no difference. And also doesn't mean CPL and SGT is harder to go on leave.

Whether it is easier will depend on the nature of your job, where u posted to, your appointment, the work you have on hand, and so on.

I will say that if you have reasons to go on leave (say holiday) , most of the time is approved.

Im just gathering sentiments about taking leave in ICA. If u take leave, will ur colleagues (covering ur duties) be v. unhappy about it?

I think such concern is over worrying. Leave is an entitlement. Everyone needs it and you are welcome to use it. Shouldn't let this concern you in your decision to join ICA. You should focus on thinking if u really like the job

As I said, just give HR a call and clarify. You will not be blacklisted by doing that

your colleagues will not be unhappy to cover your duties..but on days that are applied by many of ur fellow colleagues..u are subjected to balloting of your leave..meaning u might not get the day u want to apply for..although u made plans for it. bad side of it..
