The HR ladies are very friendly. Call them. Seriously.

Calling also make them feel u r interested in the job, no loss to you.

Default About G50 Form

Hi all, saw that quite a number of you were talking about the G50 form for DXO. I just googled and found that the form is a Personal Particulars Form (Staff-in-Confidence), is that correct? If that's form, has anyone been requested to fill in that form after applying for the job, before any tests and interviews?

I am mid-career and recently applied for DXO post. After I applied online, the HR contacted me to submit all the documents and I filled in the Personal Particulars Form (Staff-in-Confidence) (perhaps it is the G50 form). It has been almost one month and I have not received any email or call from them. Does it mean they are checking my background now even before the 2nd step?

No background info how to help you.

At least list the things u already been through.

Psychometric test?

Interview?

No news is good news. They do send letter of rejection.

Your parents still love you. its ok, the past is the past. you have to let it go. Else, talk it out with your daddy.

some facts.
1. 8-6. may have extra shift work.
2. you can be asked to leave. probation lasts 1 year.
3. no bonus if economy dont do well. but yes, will not be asked to leave due to bad economy.
4. I've yet to see a jiak liao bee DXO job, at least for the degree holder positions.
5. yes, the absolute value wont be cut. but the increase can slow down and many depts will get squeezed, salary for new grads may be reduced, lower increment and welfare/benefits programs get cancelled etc.

Hahaha if people working in MINDEF are not the most jiak liao bee employees in Singapore then how do you explain the fact that a certain South Asian country has already invaded us through legal channels without any bullets arguably through asymmetric warfare, and the people supposedly defending our country are trying to justify their iron rice bowls online, its sad really.

Just keep quiet and collect your paycheck and continue looking at life through your rose-tinted glasses
