i reach thru the recent posts and was surprised that MINDEF is cutting salary for fresh grads, perhaps due to market conditions and increased supply of candidates. i was offered approx 3.9k for a pass degree from NTU with NS a few years back(2015). a FCH with NS should getting at least 4.3k during that time.

if you are a FCH NUS with NS, just boldly ask for 4.3-4.5k. im already making 4.8k after 3-4 years, with no promotion. at least if they think you are suitable, you can still nego downwards to your baseline.

I did the psychometric test on 23rd May. I have not received any updates wrt my test. Should I email HR to check or should I wait it out?

csb civil service rarely even considers 2nd lower. it's not even consider "good honours"

Erm..your lack of respect for others and your condescending attitude is detestable. It is the ministry's poor luck to have hired a poor calibre person like you.

Are the experience in Mindef transferrable/valued in other govt or private sector?

4 to 5k starting salary may seems attractive at entry level but what about the progression?

You are clearly jealous.........you are just worried that the person got a higher salary than you wth. be helpful. he definitely deserve a higher salary. why not you just tell us what degree you have? then we will know whether your degree is worth 3k upon graduation. you are deceiving yourself....? you know there are ministries that pay 4.6k - 5.1k for fresh graduates. I really feel sad for you, really am. I hope you get pay raise soon.......even low calibre person earns more than your scrub salary......

Oh look, someone else knows another ministry that pays 5k as starting pay. Someone please get the HR to raise the salary of the scrub fella. Progression wise really depends on your CEP. Transferrable or not also depends on what role you take.

progression wise, its quite traditional in the sense that if theres no empty slot above you, you will probably be stuck. for DXOs at least. the 'good' thing is, MINDEF isnt a condusive place for work, the amount of **** is increasing exponentially due to slower budget growth and lack of manpower. its a norm for us to work 1.5 jobs plus 'special' projects. ranking is based on these projects rather than your primary jobs.

skills wise yes. but to specialised areas such as defence industries. ST Eng, Aerospace, Logistics etc. also applicable to some stat boards, eg LTA, SMRT ( private, but we all know better).
