for the ippt case, i dun think they will terminate our contract ba.

from wat i heard from my spf fren, he said that if fail ippt, bascially no promotion or pay increment. If ica and spf is in the same team la.

but no promotion or pay increment means might as well dun join ICA liao. lol.

Enquiry on SO Position

Hey, I was informed by ICA that I have been selected and is now waiting for the Offer of Appointment to join the intake on 29th May. Is there anyone here who is currently an ICA SO and can provide me info on the following:

1) What allowances will be provided for ICA SO?
2) What are the shifts involved?
3) Why is there a high turnover rate in less than a year?
4) How is the career progression like?

Do advise. Thank You.

1) No allowances even u work on night shift because the pay structure has been revised to include that....in some more high risk appt, will have some allowance.

2) Morning Shift (0800 to 1500)
Afternoon Shift (1500-2200)
Night Shift (2200-0800)
First posting is checkpoint posting so is 99% shift work. (refer to my previous post on the shift)

3) Because shift work is very taxing on the body and you are doing it for 2 yrs first posting...then also chances maybe 50% of ur whole career is shift work. And in ICA customer service mindset is very impt...If you dun have that mindset, you will find time very hard to pass by.. (you should know today is different from the past.) Must ask urself , are u ready to face thousands and thousands of pple everyday? Remember as a SO, u got to face situations that may not be created by you.... thats all i have to say.. But dun be affected by what i say, u have to try it cos everyone is different

4) Career progression is usually first posting checkpoint and move on to staff posting in various depts later. As you move, you promote in rank.. same as police.

Thanx for the update. I would like to know also, what exactly does a SO do at the checkpoint? In addition, what is the pay structure like? What is your personal view on the job based on your experience? As for career progression, I understand that your first posting will be @ the checkpoint but what I actually wanted to know was like how is the promotion like, pay increment, etc...

Hi MASMUS, did they tell you when the Offer of Appointment will come? I was also told I was selected and to wait for the Offer of Appointment. But until I see the appointment in black & white, i'm not sure if i should reject other offers and interviews
