    I worked at DFS Group part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Get to meet celebrities flying off from the airport. Good pay for part timers and friendly staff who are willing to help you when you are still new.

    Cons

    Irregular hours, especially when you are working night shift, can last till 12 midnight with no cab rebates at all. Changi Airport is very far to travel to even if you live in Central area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could do more to manage the teams and train staff as there are not much training given.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at DFS Group in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had a group presentation. The group was split in to two, each group presents the assigned topic in Chinese and another in English. After each part you would give feedback to the other group. Time was very tight for preparation, there was a lot of improvisation.

    Second part was a team building exercise, working through a maze.

    Lastly, there was a short writing assessment and a test on some excel skills.
