Toy Girl....

I have a tattoo on my ankle but it can be covered up very well with skin tone tape....this is what i have been doing at work now. No one noticed it but i was wondering if it would be an issue for Emirates......

I understand that Emirates has two versions of uniforms....skirt and pants rite...

Secondly, is it okay to wear my hair down or should i bun it up for the interview ?


Regards,
Ika

It's considered industry standard to try to bun it up if your hair is messy. Otherwise, leaving it down is fine provided you look well groomed. Emirates screening for recruitment days in Singapore is different than in the Philippines - Candidates there have to even show their legs to the prescreeners to look for scars on the arms, legs and hands. Currently Singapore recruitment does not involve it. Advise you to conceal your tattoo. It doesn't look good and makes us wonder what other dark secrets you have? You will get your uniform during your first week after you land in Dubai.

Good luck.

But would i need to declare it ? If i wore pants throughout the whole process than they probably wouldn't know but wat if they require us to wear a skirt ?

You can wear pants to the interview - Follow what the local recruiter says during their briefing. The main thing is to look presentable, comfortable and cheerful. Just wear something comfortable and try to sit in front during the real screening day so the recruitment officer notices you (provided you get past the local recruiter for Round 1). During medical screening, I did not remember a question on tattoos being asked, but as long as it is not visible it should be fine.

N level is acceptable for entry. As long as you completed high school - In this case N is considered as an high school equivalent.

Prescreening = Conducted by the local recruitment agency - The first walk in that you attend. What are you supposed to do? - Attend, fill up a application form and go for the "interview"

After that, if you pass you attend the real screening day.

HI Toy girl,

Was wondering how long the first interview with Sass Atlantic would take.

Would i know if i made it to the next round on the spot and would i have to stay on for the briefing after that or come back another day ?

I'm due for work at 2.30pm so i intend to go early but juz wanted to make sure that I would be able to get to work on time or else i would need to make the necessary arrangements.

Regards,

Ika

Depends on the crowds. Go for the 9.30am slot (or the first one) get it over and done. It's quick - You'll know on the spot whether you may it to the next round (Real screening) and the briefing is held on another day.

No swim test conducted in Singapore. But you will be expected to know how to at least "survive" in water in Dubai. Just for your information, in Gulfair, if you can't swim when you arrive, you're sent back home.

No skin check and no uniform fitting. We aren't like SQ to that extreme. - If you wear a skirt, make sure your legs are in tip-top conditions. Face should be clear off any acne, if there is you need to conceal.

Good luck.
