SRO Problems

June 23, 2010

I would like to inform all of you that there is a problem going on in the SRO. Applicants under HOP were not deployed! According to them, there’s a visa shortage and delayed of visa approval from the ministry. Some of the applicants under HOP’s job orders were retrieved, some folders were lost and adviced to come to the next delegation.  This is the reality of applying in SRO.

Missing Job Orders in SRO.

May 27, 2010

I wanna share this story of a friend of mine who applied in SRO and had this experience.

She went to SRO yesterday to check the status of her flight departure. She finished everythign she needs to finish and just waiting for that damn text from them but she was shocked when she saw her folder and her job order is gone. They cannot give her a clear explanation but with as what other applicants. They said that some job orders were on sale. meaning, they are selling the job orders in exchange of money? I was like WHAT?I will be going to the SRO next week to check the status of my flight as well.

SRO Exam and Interview

March 19, 2010

So, I had my exam and interview sa SRO yesterday. I reached the office at 7:30am and to my suprised grabeh na ang pila as in nandon na ako sa dulo! Pero mga 8:30 nagpapasok na sila. Kaya bring your id kasi kailangan may visitor’s pass kayo! iiwan nyo ang id sa lobby.

Pag akyat ko sa taas another pila ulit. first yung kukunin ang folder sa loob. Pila yon pero alphabetically arrange sya kaya di kayo malilito. Tapos pumirma kami sa parang attendance sheet at bingyan kami ng form for interview na doon isusulat ng mag interview ang evaluation nya sa iyo. Tapos another pila na naman for the encoding ng informations pero mabilis lang naman. Right after that, mag exam na kayo.

50 items ang exam, ibat ibang set ang binibigay. Basic and general nursing lang ang coverage nya. After ng exam namin, binigay na agad ang result since natapos ako agad, na check agad ang paper ko at nakasama ako sa first batch for interview.

Doon ako napunta sa arabianang girl, sabi nila intimidating daw pero di naman kasi mukha naman syang mabait she asked me personal questions first kung ilang years na ako nag wowork, saan, at anong area. then after that she asked me situational cases sa work. Sobrnag dami kasi ang natanong nya sa akin dahil 3 years na ang experience ko sa ER. Pero don’t you guys worry kayang kaya nyo sagutin basta confident kayo. at presence of mind!

Right after the interview nakalimutan ko lahat ng sinabi ko at sinabi ng nag interview sa akin she smiled at me at mag wait daw ako sa counter for the result. Tapos yon tinawag ang name ko pinapasok kami sa lobby at yon binigyan na kami ng letter of appointment at yung slip for medical referral! Nandon na kasi yung GAMCA mismo sa SRO kaya di na kami pumunta pa ng GAMCA kaso na delay ang printing ng referral dahil naglka brown out sa GAMCA. So far ito pa lang yung experience ko!

Kanina pala, pumunta ako ng POEA for briefing lang! for medical na kasi ako sa monday yon po pa lang ma e shashare ko if you have questions just ask..=) leave me a comment. para masagot ko agad..=)
