s.h.i.t.tiest staff div to be posted to...

top of the list might have to be CSC (poor culture, heavy workload/long hours esp if you're in passports section). for services centre, prsc is said to be the best of the 3.

the other bad places i know of are intel (work fatigue due long and odd hours from after office hours ops and time-off accumulated can't be fully utilized), manpower and corp comms (politics, autocratic and narrow minded colleagues/bosses).

for land checkpoints, tuas is better than woodlands due to workload. the others like coastal and ports, airport are pretty good i heard.

Hi.Don't understand how HR works.I have been to panel interview (4 months already).My status on Careers@Gov is still shortlisted.Shouldn't my status by now be unsuccessful since I didn't get any e-mail to state that my application is unsuccessful.

Called HR,the person said still in process and if unsuccessful,an e-mail will be sent to me.

Others who applied for JO position later than me already signed LOA.

I just wish that I will be informed so that I will be able to move on peacefully.Coz' when the person said still in process, kinda gave me false hope.

Wondering what's going on?

I also same went for the panel interview on 14dec then I received an sms from the ica officer on Jan 24 asking me go for medical checkup. Until now I am waiting. Even I called the ica hr thrice they keep saying still in process. If they want to reject us they would have done it earlier.

Patience is the key. They rang me up after 2 months plus after the interview asking if im still interested. And a total of after 3 months then i started training. No news is good news. Maybe you are still under consideration for which batch to start. Not if u get a rejection email till then you still got hope

There is a March batch, which is the next intake. There isn't a February batch probably because the last batch started in late Jan. Salary wise, definitely only after training starts.
received any news yet?
