I applied online. The process took 3 days – interviewed at Emirates in July 2014.Interview Details
Long, long process
On the INTERVIEW DAYS(FIRST DAY/CV Submission) :
When the clock tick till 8.45 am, the interviewers will be entering the room to check the crowds and try to arrange the queue( depending on the crowds and separate it into batches)
Then, the interviewers will introduce themselves, explaining the SCHEDULE and what to wear/ to bring if you’re shortlisted on the next day. They will distribute a summary of the emirates cabin crew in paper form and an application form which we just have to fill in some common details (e.g names, highest qualification, languages, phone number and etc.)
Make sure you fill it in a BLACK PEN and BLOCK LETTER, also make sure the phone number is accurate as they will call you once you’re shortlisted. Write your reference ID for your ONLINE APPLICATION ID on the top of the right corner column.
They will then start collecting the CV/Resume(ONLY CV/ Resume * others are not require and they will not accept on the day), both of your passport size and full-length photo also the small paper they gave to you. (tips : though they might say it’s okay not to have the photos or if you did not complete the ONLINE APPLICATION, but trust me, these are essential! So make sure you completed all!)
After the submission, you are free to go and wait for the call.(They will let you know by when before the submission starts). The call is about 15seconds length and they will INFORM you about the candidate number you hold for the next day. If there is no call, I’m sorry to say that “Please TRY AGAIN!”
On the ASSESSMENT DAY (SECOND DAY):
At 8.50 am, the interviewers will gather all of us and distribute the name according to the numbers and make sure you’re there! They will then ask you to enter the room where they will explain the process of the day and do some briefing regarding with living in Dubai and Emirates Airlines.
Once you’re in the room, they will begin the day with a group discussion while doing the arm-reach test (212cm) and asking if you have any visible tattoo or scars. You have to be partnered with your mates who are sitting next to you. They will distribute a card which might be a tree, tomatoes, hanger or anything for you to discuss with your mates. Each of us to come out with an idea. (Mind that for those who fail the arm-reach test will be sent off immediately).
After finishing the arm-reach, they will swap into different group to evaluate our presentation. During the presentation, remember to greet, mention your number and name, as well as your partner and the topic you’re going to present. Make it first, second and third points, be clear and maintain your eye contact as well as your smile.
They will then ask us to wait out there as they try to eliminate some of us. We will receive a letter according to the numbers in which says “Congratulation…” or “Thank you…” For those who MANAGE to go for second stage will have to take the English test and for those who are unsuccessful, please kindly try again after 6 months.
The English test will be an hour long and it has 40 questions of the multiples choice and an essay to write. The essay can be about yourself (weakness and strengths/what was the most regretful thing you have done and etc). Make sure you write the point and it has to be a valid answer. Again, after the test, you will be receiving the letter of “Congratulations..” or “Thank you..”
Each group has to come out with a solution and present it to the interviewers.(The presentation will be done by using role playing method) During the discussion, you have to talk assertively with your mates and contribute some ideas as they will know if you’re not. Also, be a time keeper as time MANAGEMENT is important for a cabin crew when you’re on-board. (tips :Remain calm and be professional.)
Again, by the end of the day, you will receive either “Congratulations…” or “Thank you…” Of course for those who are able to make it through, you are honored to attend for the last 1 on 1 interview J For those who are not able to make it, please kindly reminded you are eligible to APPLY after 6 months. Please bear in mind that if you fail the last interview ( 1 on 1), you might have to wait for a year to re-apply itInterview Questions
