Is it common practice in Singapore for firms to have a probation period for new joiners (duration at their discretion), during which new joiners can be fired at a week’s notice period?

Yes, I think ours was 6 months in EY.

Usually the clause also provides for the employee to resign at the same notice period (1 week in this case). Think of it as a lemon law clause for both the employer and employee to make sure it’s a good fit.
