    Former Employee - Cabin Crew 

    I worked at Emirates full-time

    Pros

    Tax free salary. Not much else

    Cons

    Poor management, long hours, no time off, no social life, could not choose housing, could not have visitors after midnight, it was a horrible job

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees... they put their lives on the line daily. They need sleep. Take care of them!

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Emirates full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Paid accommodation, transport to and from included. Used to stay in 5 star hotels.

    Cons

    Management has no idea what they're doing and live in a culture of fear and bring that energy to the crew, they cut back a lot and have resided to average when they truly used to offer the best. NO room for upgrades.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employers the way you would want to be treated not like a slave.

    Cons

    Must live in Dubai. Its Vegas on steroids with a dash of Sharia. Its a toss up on where your accommodation will be and who you are roomed with. No control or choice over this matter. an be a luxury high rise in the city or a rat hole prison complex in the middle of the desert with no real access to the outside world. Zero compassion when it comes to bereavement. If someone in your family dies, they will deny you to go...

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your crew. Show some compassion. And for gods sake, when someone is bereaved, let them mourn and go back home to say goodbye to their loved ones instead of punishing your employees for having a human experience. Until you are able to replace your entire cabin crew teams with robots, show some compassion. We now live in a world where companies far and wide are becoming more transparent and there are outlets...

    I have been working at Emirates full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Always running around looking for new challenges. Pay attention to small details.

    Cons

    Biological clock runs out and 24 hour rotation shifts are draining. I worked as hard as I could with facing challenges and remarkable results. Very slow career growth

    Advice to Management

    Need to step up the game of Management. It is quite insensitive when it comes to dealing with staff, . I have worked as best I can with remaklable results, But I saw no future growth in the company.
