Postby bladd3r » Wed, 12 Jul 2006 11:18 pm

hi everyone!!, am new to this thingy. Anyhow, can someone enlighten me if the last interview held on the 8th July was only meant for females?

Did any guys get in at all, were there even any guys who turned up on that day and made it through to the 2nd round?

Thanks!! :)

Hi,

Just want to tell you that nope. There isnt any guys coming for the interview. Its already stated and stricted that its only for ladies. All coming are females only. How about that?

You can try for Qatar. They are having their recruitment on 22nd July 2006. There is on Saturday. You can just give it a try if you really want to be a cabin crew. They advertise they are hiring Cabin Crew. I also see quite a lot of guys going down for their interview.

thanks for the reply..

anyone in here who will be going for the 2nd round of interview on the 21st thn? i was told that these elimination rounds are not so much where we compete against each other but rather how the team can work together supporting each other.

That is what they look for, how well one can work within a group. many think it is a competition. i have heard of the whole goup of 10 making though to the final round. Therefore, it is quite certain that there isnt muct of a quota as to how have to get kicked out each round.

Well, having said so much, would anybody care to socialize more and preferbly group up to support each other during this coming 2nd interview?

Mines on the 21st..

Emirates Open day on 26 August

Postby lindyhoppe » Mon, 14 Aug 2006 3:07 am

Dear all,

There is an Emirates Open Day on 26 August 2006, Saturday (http://dxbmiww99.emirates.com/hrrecruit ... ayList.asp) but I don't seem to see any discussion on it in this forum; much of it seems to be on SIA. Is this because it is less popular with Singaporeans, or because its previous recruitment round was very recent in July? Or any other reasons that someone might enlighten me of?

For those who have applied previously, may I know if the full body and head-and-shoulders photographs are crucial in the e-application? I am about to take my executive shots a few days later but I'm worried that it might too late to submit my completed e-application by then.

Thanks for any helpful replies :)

Hi flawa,

Yes I've read your informative post with lots of tips for us to survive through the stringent selections for Emirates at the other forum. In fact, I also printed it out to read more carefully - thank you! Guess what, I have a friend too who was in the same situation as you - she couldn't decide between being a teacher or a flight attendant. She is model-like, was the champion for a beauty pageant, but she said she preferred the stable lifestyle more to her perceived lifestyle of a cabin crew. So right now she's undergoing training at NIE and won't be going to the interview with me.

As for myself, I'd try my best to be selected, but ultimately if I'm not what they're looking for, I hope to be able to at least tell myself that I have tried (and probably tried and tried and tried... hehe) and given it all. Thanks again!

Hi Lindyhoppe,

wow! u actually printed my long2 write-up? U go gerl! I like your positive attitude, but don't worry if you have the dying passion & determination, you sure to make it one day. Never despair. For me, I have ended this whole desire to be a cabin crew NOT becoz I've give up BUT I've already made a decision 2 join teaching. Actual fact, I'm suppose to go for my medical chkup right now and upon that, was informed to leave on the 27/10 for Dubai.

Just like ur fren, I think both of us had weigh the pros n cons very2 thoroughly b4 making the final decision. To tell u the truth, I find that this is the greatest rejection I ever made cause I've always wanted to be a cabin crew and now I'm rejecting it when it came knocking at my door.
Frankly speaking the entire process for Emirates is a brain toture, nerve wrecking and a long long process. But this is what we call reality, we can plan things in life but 'he' will decide for us.

Teaching the youth and being in the frontline of the service industry seem to be worlds apart. But they share many similarities that are often neglected... they're all "people-jobs", having to deal with people from all walks of life and social strata. You didn't mention about regretting your decision or anything like that, so I hope I can safely presume that you're happy with teaching now.

I'm embarking on the "nerve-wrecking and long long process" soon... grrr. The heat is on.

Hello Tomatoe:

I copied and pasted the following from the Emirates' official website:


Requirements

Every new cabin crew will be provided with comprehensive training in our state-of-the-art training college. However to qualify for this opportunity, you will need to meet the following criteria:

Minimum age 21 years at the time of application.

Minimum arm reach of 212 cms (on tip toes), which will enable you to reach emergency equipment on all aircraft types.

Educated to at least high school standard.
Medically fit to meet aircrew requirements.

Fluent in written and spoken English ( fluency in another language is an asset).

Previous experience in the service/ hospitality industry is an advantage.

Finally, you will be the sort of person who has the natural ability to provide excellent service within a team environment.

Perhaps you can call the recruitment agency to see if you are allowed to try?
