How do we answer the question when we get asked if NS is cheapen when such a high number of citizenship are given to foreigners who did not serve NS?

Can I check with any current/previous DXO , will there be an increment upon passing the probation (not yearly increment)?
I heard used to have increment after probation last time, not sure about the practice now. Any kind soul can advise?
Thanks in advance

On hindsight, that depends. Must check with HR. Some people do not.

when did you get to know about your probation increment?
Was it at the point of signing the employment contract or at the end of the probation?

thanks

You can ask at contract signing if you qualify for it. One of my colleagues asked. The others you would just get an email telling you that you passed probation, and you will be entitled the amount.

Source: i have 2 colleagues that experienced the above

Can someone shed light on whether DXOs have CEP? Anyone knows how CEP is determined? Education? School? Honours class?

officially no. (not that i know of, unless someone in HR can confirm)

but within the same community, the bosses will choose who to groom based on their perceived performance. degree class is not an so impt factor once you enter the service(unless you are scholar). they 'assign' a CEP for them to gauge their end point and groom them towards that position for the long term. example, in that community, if the highest DXO post is a DX15, they will need to identify potential people to eventually take over in 15-20 years. its hard to hire off the street if the job is specialised to mindef operations.

also, DXOs are empowered to job hop within mindef and take a higher position. hence no CEP for DXO as it doesnt make much sense. Some can jump from DX10 to DX12 directly only after 8 years in service and only barely pushing mid-30s. most DXOs will end at DX12, so either he/she is the chosen one, or he/she is lucky with the time and space.

Anyway I already went for PT for previous application, does the two weeks notice stated in the email still count or?
there appears to hve no statement on two weeks notice of the outcome of PT in any email to me from their HR, and it has been three weeks since my PT. So I suppose it is back to no sending of non-shortlisted notification? not impressed with such handling, seriously.
