Yeah haha he or she is probably some unemployed loser whose probably just jealous he cannot get our recession-proof DXO job.

Also what invasion s/he talking about, everything looks perfect to me from my Mindef cubicle and as good as it was ten, twenty years ago, and all Singaporeans are enjoying good lives right now and all senior management are staffed by Singaporeans. No such thing as foreign invasion at all, we at Mindef have done a great job and deserve our bonuses.

haha sounds about right. probably dont understand how a country is run and how vulnerable a country like Singapore is. he's probably someone who has not worked or lived in other countries for comparison.

but I hope he sincerely can solve his daddy issues or talk to someone. retrenchment is not a sin. dont be ashamed. keep trying to apply.

You are looking for some comfort or closure, unfortunately even before the pandemic already the process takes anywhere from 1 month to 6 months.

As long no letter of rejection, the chance is valid.

Even if you start working they may tell u, if clearance fails, you lose this job, we will pro-rate you accordingly.

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

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.

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.
