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...
At checkpoints, officer refer a case which they feel doubtful and SO will assess and clear based on ur judgement and of cse adhering to SOP. Ur duty is to exercise judgement, resolve difficult situations/complains and do anything that requires a SO level.

You must like the job nature to appreciate it. Also be prepared for heavy responsibility as a SO. To be frank, checkpoint work is tough but easy (ironic) because after work you dun need to think much. But I seen friends in staff posting scratching head even after work because there are lots of things to do.

Pay Structure is exactly same as listed in website.. +abt $500 for guys with NS. Other Rank pay structure I am not sure as I only served 1.5 yrs

Promotion is based on ur potential. From INSP1 to INSP2 to ASP1 to ASP2 to DSP1 to DSP2 and so on. Pay increment differs so can't really comment.

There is 1 previous question for allowance for ICA specialist. There is no allowance as Pay already included that. But for Specialist scheme, you earn $ when u work overtime but for SO scheme, only timeoff given.

Yah. I have yet to receive anything yet. I have received offers from SPF, SCDF and Prisons but they will all start AFTER 1st of June when the pay cut is in effect. Only ICA so far claimed to offer me before 1st June (29th May intake). But there is still no official Offer of Apptmt except for an email telling me to wait for it and then I am commencing on 29th May. Thus I am a bit concerned too.

Anyway, can someone explain again regarding the shifts? In addition, are the bonuses the same as SCDF and SPF?

Hey, I have yet to receive anything. Will it be via email or mail. I think its a bit poorly organized. I don't even know the info regarding the job like the scope, shift hours, bonuses, benefits, etc etc. Whatever I know is from the website or from this forum. Are we expected to just sign once we get the Offer of Appointment without having much info on what we are getting ourselves into?

You will recv it by mail.
You can decide wether u wan to sign the Offer of Appointment.
Once u decide to take up the offer, u must go the the MND complex at maxwell on the date stated on the offer letter.
Once there, there will be a HR officer attending to you. I think u can voiced out all queries and concerns that u are unsure of. At the end of the day, if u feel that the offer is not good, u can just reject it. If in are ok with it, den u can sign at the last page of the offer letter.
Then, the HR officer will inform u of the date to report for work etc.
