    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Emirates full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salary, good benefits, they promote within, offers profit share, very stable company, good management structure, develope their employees, Treats employees as valuable assets.

    Cons

    The company works lean, hence your role expands as the years go by and employees start to wear multiple hats.

    Advice to Management

    More leading edge technology needs to be developed and introduced to improve efficiency in the workforce. Needs to have a better induction/training program for new hires.

    Aircraft Mechanic Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Emirates.

    Interview

    Very simple interview to determine your work history and most importantly your willingness to and dedication to work.

    You are give a psychometrics exam to take online...which they are very big on.
    HR representative and Maintenance manager is present taking turns asking the questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself?
      Very basic aircraft maintenance practices.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They will make every effort to low ball you! They will tell you there are plenty of other people they can hire if you don't want to accept the offer. Negotiate as much as you can up front because once you're in, you're stuck!
