    Cabin Crew Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Emirates in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was invited to participate in an interview at a hotel in a major city. The trip was costly and time-consuming, but I felt it was an opportunity not to be missed.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions that the applicants were given were superficial and unimportant (e.g. give a nontraditional use for a common item, like a paper bag.)

      The real job assessment was based on their observations of how the applicants reacted to the situations that the employers set up.

      For example:

      Before the first round, the organizers set out fewer chairs than needed for the number of applicants involved.

      The applicants were all given a number. When the first round of applicants were called to take seats by number, some realized there weren't enough chairs.

      The clever ones went to get more chairs for those who were standing. Others found their seats quickly and stayed seated. Once everyone was seated and ready, they were asked to answer silly questions, not realizing that that the organizer had already decided who was to be cut.

      Those who graciously gave up their seat were allowed to go the next round - only 5 of the 20. Those who sat ahead of others, or were oblivious to the shortage of chairs, were cut.

      The entire interview process involved these kinds of tricks.

      This so-called interview does not seem a very professional, or effective way, to vet the best applicants.

      It's a lot to invited applicants to travel far distances for an interview, and then to dash their hopes without actually providing a fair and honest assessment of the applicant's skills, knowledge and abilities for the job.
