Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Emirates (Chicago, IL).

Interview

Applied online and was invited to an assesment day. So many people showed up that it became a open day. Research the company and dress like cabin crew. Wear a skirt suit set if you are female and the red lipstick. Pull your hair completely back in a bun or French twist. Make your resume concise and focused on customer service. Don't forget to smile :) have a good time and be professional and courteous to everyone you meet, not just the recruiter.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Emirates (San Francisco, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through Emirates website and had uploaded a resume and a full length with a headshot length photo. I was contacted within a week later with an Invitation Only session in three cities. They were San Francisco, Dallas, and Washington. You don't have to confirm anything you just show up to one of these locations on the specific date and bring your resume, picture, and your invitation letter. The session started at 9am. There was only 1 recruiter and 40 applicants that showed up. It was a small group and everyone looked amazing and had great customer service qualities. We started with an informational video on Emirates and what life would be like in Dubai. We then did Q & A. After the presentation the recruiter she asked us to fill out a form she handed around. After that was completed she told us to bring the completed form along with our resumes to the front so she could review them. She looked at our resumes and asked a few questions. After that she asked everyone to leave the room. She wrote up name tags with a number on it next to your name. She split everyone into two groups. She asked the first group to come back to the room in 10 minutes and the 2nd group to come to the room in 30 minutes. I was in the first group and when we got back into the room the chairs were put into a big circle. The recruiter asked us to sit in numerical order. She then handed out index cards with a profession. She asked us to think of a great quality you have to possess for this profession . She made each candidate stand up in front of everyone and present. After going around the room she handed another index card with an item. We were then asked to work with the person next to us as a team and come up with a way to use this item in your profession and to think outside the box. You and your partner had to both present to everyone. After that was completed we stepped out and she went on with the second group. Then when she was finished she hung up a list with numbers on it and said if your number is on this list you passed to the next level. Unfortunately I did not make it to this level. Overall it was a positive and great learning experience.

    Interview

    I went to an invitation only day in the US, to do this I had to apply online and I got a response via email.
    First you drop off your CV, then there's a cut. You then do a group exercise. In ours we got paired off with one other person, you present something to the group twice. Then there's another cut. The next step is a role play group exercise, followed by another cut. Those that make it past that round have a final interview. It's stressful but it was an interesting experience.

    Interview

    Overall, there is a 4 step process to being hired.
    The first three steps you must go through involve the dropping off of your CV, a presentation of the company, a brief presention involving a random object, and then finally a group project.
    In my group, it started at 200 people and only 15 people made it to the final interview.

    Interview

    I made it through the second round of interviews before being cut. The first round was watching videos about the company and Dubai and the second round was breaking into groups to describe inanimate objects. Overall the two rounds I made it through were fairly interesting and unique to the company.

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Emirates (Lake Mary, FL).

    Interview

    I applied online and received an invitation to the invitation day a couple days later. At the hotel, there was only one recruiter from Emirates. She played a few videos about Dubai and working for Emirates. We then lined up to give her our resumes, where she asked a couple questions. She barely gave me time to explain my answer before asking another question. After the first cut, I came back for the group round. We were put into groups of 3 and asked to describe the personality traits of certain professions. I came up with all of the traits for my group (we needed 3 and each person presented one). We then received a random item and had to present a creative idea on how the profession could use the idea. Again, I came up with the idea and spoke about it. I was shocked when I got cut after this round. She only picked one person per group. Emirates does not say why or why they don't pick a person. I feel their process is not practical because the first groups didn't follow directions in stating their names, yet they got chosen because of her one person per group choosing process.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Emirates in May 2015.

    Interview

    There are several stages in the Emirates selection process. Once you'll arrive and go through a cv drop the recruiter plays a video about Dubai to familiarize the candidates about the position. After the video she does a quick Q&A and then 30 mins later the candidates are asked to come back and check if they made the first cut. The second round consists of grouping and coming up with a creative ways to use the given profession and a random item like umbrella, candy, clock, shoes and etc... And then she makes another cut. The third round was when she separated the remaining candidates into two groups and gave us 15 minutes to discuss and find solutions to a given situation which is customer service related. When both groups completed the task she made another cut. The fourth round was when she had non native speakers take an English test and those who didn't pass were eliminated. The last round was one on one interview the next day. i heard the Q's vary but the personality test is mandatory for all candidates to take after one on one interview is completed.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Emirates.

    Interview

    Like is already everywhere written, it was almost totally the some procedure. I went for invitation day. You come inside and you get small paper where is written more details about work, accommondation, transport, salary, probation period etc. After you go to give to the recruiter your CVC while can be given to you some simply questions like why you would like to work for for Emirates. After you watch two movies about work and about Dubai, where the recruitor can ask people what they already know about it. After you have break. The recruitor chose people with highlighting names on paper who is gonna move to the next round. In the next round you work in the group with some cards of subjects and you have to tell what you can do with it (mine oppinion - the most stupid and unusual answer), after some people left. Next round - you in group as travel agent and you have to tell the best idea what to the in the city on card you have. People left. Another round - work group - card as hotel manager and you have to decide who gonna get place in hotel and stay and who doesnt and why. There doesnt exist the good and wrong answer.. Big discussion and mess. While this time the recruitor is asking person by person behind a wall if you can touch line on wall on your tip toes without shoes and may ask some questions about your last work and some another. After our all group went out and wait for second group (1h 15m) after some people left and the rest went write english test (7 exercises for one hour). Who made it continue for face to face interview next day or more.
