    "Incompetent HR recruitment"

      I worked at Emirates full-time

      Pros

      Great interactive hiring process, and activities but they need to be monitored by 2 recruiters because one might miss what other can catch.

      Cons

      Only One recruiter for 40 people. Not a second opinion from another recruiter. I saw great responses, people with great open personalities and dressed impeccable who did not get selected for the 3rd round of the open day. I did see sloppy dressed, non confident individuals with tattoos and really long nails get selected by only one recruiter.

      Advice to Management

      Have more than one HR recruiter at each event. Have the red line reach assessment Before making people waste their time showcasing their skills and knowledge if they won't reach the height test.

      I worked at Emirates full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      - Tax free, accommodation/transportation supported, staff ticket benefits, free dry cleaning - 30 days leave per year - Multi-cultural, positive environment - Easy job, fun to work! - You travel and make money at the same time - If you try you can save money super easy but also you can spend a lot with this job, really depends on people

      Cons

      - Situation changes a lot depends on management and industry environment - As size got bigger, cabin crew treated worse and worse - No room for growth, career path is limited, even promotion is not related how good you are but management situation, so this job is for young people to short period of time who wants to travel and enjoy - Crew evaluation system seems not reflect the performance right - Just one mistake...

      Advice to Management

      Cabin crew are the face of the company, happy crew make flight pleasant for your very valuable customers!

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Emirates full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      You get company accommodation, although quality and location are not as glamorous as it used to be. Great pay, medical insurance which sometimes doesn't cover what supposed to be covered, good hotels on layover, but not as good as it used to be when I started flying. You get cash, meal allowance once you reach outstation hotel.

      Cons

      Lots of flying hours, sometimes minimum rest in between flights (11 hours). Can be scheduled 3 night turnarounds in a row, which is just impossible to survive physically. But you have to keep your smile on while in uniform.

      I worked at Emirates full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Lifestyle is either love it or hate it - lots of free time, opportunities for travel, sunshine! 80-100 hours a month of official work but lots of long nights, long days and expect some unpaid time before and after flights (2-4 hours per flight). Immediately start on international flights to everywhere in the world.

      Cons

      You are just a number, a cog in the wheel. That can be great for just gliding by but the company culture is very geared towards stepping on other people to make yourself look good.

      Longer periods of rest would be great.
