Ya exactly, sames goes to apo. damn tiring. Concern about my health on the long run. no doubt is good money. But really no life. I last time was an apo before also. Reach home rush my meal, shower then sleep already. shag balls.
Then off day is typically sleep whole day to recharge yr energy for the next 5 to 6 days work shift cycle.

I already know but just want to see how they going to "persuade" me to join.

Is it stupid to quit without a job now ?

I in admin line. Assuming I do not have commitment except monthly insurance and payouts to my aged parents.

My savings only $10,000. True not bluffing.

I cannot tolerate my current workplace anymore. Is it stupid to quit my job without securing another job ?
The reasons for quitting my current job is long story. Not wanting to repeat.

I suggest you better to secure a job first before resigning bro. Now quite hard to find jobs unless u willing to take any job offers in any field. I'm in yr situation 2 months back. Cannot tolerate my workplace toxic culture etc. Posted me to department which is very physical demanding for me. Then i just resigned.
Been on job hunts for almost like 1 month+ sending over like closed to 100 applications only got 10 interviews? got few offers but really low ball me. is liek pay cut $800 to 1k which i declined also.

Damn depressed wor. But Garment really double standard lo. On one hand encourage us go take degree. on other hand they select only second upper to 1st class honors and mostly scholars easy to get into civil service sectors.

Man in the street like us with only passed degree or merit stands very low chance getting into civil service especially during this pandemic. Most of my friends with local U passed degree also got instant rejection without making it to panel interview. All depressed n low moral like us.

Ya the lowest I can go is 2.5k with no exp.

Any feed back on interview? is 30 to 35mins interview considered good? Some interviewers were kind of strict with nearly 0 smiling expression. And ask a lot of questions such as why I left the previous company. Then end with the session will notify me in 2 weeks if im selected. After I heard this sentence I roughly know I nv impress them and high chance will unsuccessful after 2 weeks. What you think? If never get think i will just give up on applying for civil service. Im currently going 34 to 35 soon.

Damn sian haiz.
