I received some PMs about life and jobscopes of a APO, I will share it below. I am a ex APO so here is my daily routine last year. I will wake up at 4.30am, eat breakfast, shower and prepare, leave house at 5.30am to catch the first bus. Report at 6.45am to draw arms, and fall in for inspection for turnout and bearing. I take transport from base to deployment site to work from 8am to 8pm. Sometimes night shift team come late cause of traffic jam so usually takeover timing is around 8.40pm. Then take transport back to base to return arms. Reach base at 9.40pm. Return arms and change leave base at 10pm. Take public transport home, reach home 11.15pm. After shower and eat, it's already 12am. My wife and kids are already asleep. I only have 4 and a half hours to sleep and need to wake up at 4.30am the next morning. And the cycle goes on for the next 6 days. I was literally burned out after working 6 months, eventually i resigned. No wonder the turnover rate for this job is super high. Which job in Singapore will have around 60 to 90 ppl resign every month?
Bro.. tot you just went training to C? good not? or you apply for SO now

Thanks for the insight Bro. Will rescind my application tomorrow morning. Dont wanna live this kind of life. If its a 5 day work week and can sleep at the base i think still tolerable. but the traveling time and 6 day work week is just too overboard. Dont make sense to go home if hours are so long, might as well camp at base like Army liddat. No wonder so few singaporeans wanna do this job. Then people still expect 100% alertness from the officers with this kind of long hour shifts.
wah lan eh u believe him.

that time he say he APO, then after that he post in EDMW, say his fren wan join APO, so asking for his fren as he dunno APO life.

he anyhow write one mens.

look at the previous post from last year backwards, some assignment can go back early, some late, some night shift, my marksman instructor tell us to get at least 6-7 hour of sleep, if really like this guy say can get at least 6-7 hour of sleep meh.

I'm APO at C, direct SGT, from NUS.

Np bro, ur bonus will be paid in installments throughout your contract term. but check with your recruiter to double confirm.

Hi, i have inquired from Certis already regarding the bonus. 16k will be paid out in tranches over a 4 year period, of about 2k each time. The bond is only 1 year. so if u resign within 2 years, u will only get a partial payout of the bonus. For exact month and exact figure of each payout, i'd suggest you ask during the interview.
Basic salary is 2.6k/2.7k, with all your OT allowances/incentive, gross is about 3.7k.

In comparison, Company S actually pays higher as their basic is 3.3k, gross about 3.8k and bonus of 20k over a period of 3 years.

However, Company S has longer working hours as compared to Company C. So this justifies for the lower salary at C. Company C is 4 working days with 2 days off before cycle repeats, whilst company S is 5 working days per week for half the month, and 6 working days per week for the other half. This means that for Company C, you will be working 20 days per month while for Company S you will need to work 22 days.

In addition, the 12 hour shift for company S is excluding lunch hour, so total woking hour per shift is actually 13 hours. whereas for Company C, 12 hour shift is inclusive of the 1 hour lunch break. Correct me if i am wrong on this portion, but this is what i gathered from the interview.

So, if you are looking for more $ and willing to work longer hours, join company S. Wanna work lesser hours, join company C.

Hope this helps anyone who is thinking of security as a career.

is OK for me, i'm old pattern type people, no training prior experience, no progression jitao inspector i dun feel right.
(although i know SPF NUS is jitao INSP, but that's different, many years before i did applied and actually made it to DAC SPF final round, but due to personal things it didn't work out.)

so i prefer ground work first, then see how next time.

most important for me i proud of the Uniform, my work (do before in NS(SAF) so i know how is it), my Team.
