Hi Plavt,Plavt wrote:flawa,
A very well written post and some good points regarding the culture of the airline, I find it almost beyond belief people can turn up in sloppy dress for a job where appearance is amongst the most important aspects.
As I have said so many times this is the kind of job where you need to do some research and plan your application accordingly which you clearly have.
Hope you are successful, if you have not already been selected, if you have enjoy your flying career.
thanks for the encouragement and being supportive towards my points. You might remember me with my old posts under the SQ threads with the nick wawa.
Whatever you stated is very true, 110% of thorough research is a MUST if you're really keen to be a cabin crew. Lack of initiave and effort wld just be a waste of time but trust me sometimes life can be so unfair, those who doesnt take this seriously tends to make it but those who does never had the chance to pull thru. I'm speaking frm my experiences, although I'm not and never a cabin crew ever in my life I learned a lot from every process and stage I went thru during all my past interviews; 8 times with SQ and once with Emirates. All this gave me the wealth of knowledge and preparation to always do better cause 'Never say die' attitude is strongly instill in me.
Unfortunately when Emirates and the career as a teacher both came knocking at my door at the same time, I had to only choose one. I never gave up going for every single intv as a cabin crew and always wanted to be one BUT I gave it up just like that when I think of my career prospect and stability thus I rejected Emirates with a deep broken hearted. It was a tough..tough decision to make cause both are 2 tempting job offer. That's why I wana share with fellow friends down here, if you wana make it do it with all your heart never take it lightly.
From my experience again, getting thru Emirates is so much tougher than SQ cause Emirates are very picky and selective in choosing the right girls with the right attitude. They want girls with intellectuality, articulate, smart and warm with pleasent aura. Dont bother abt all these skin checks on how flawless ur skin is, how good you look in the uniform, whether you can 'swim' in the confidence test (my goodness sake, you're swimming in lifejacket!)..blablabla...cmon if you're gd..you're gd! Passengers wdnt want to lift up your uniform n check ur 'flawless' skin'..am I'm right?
Thus, you got to do a lot of research and homework. But dont worry during the briefing for those selected to the 2nd round, the agency will brief everyone tips on what to do and not to do for the subsequent rounds. FYI, their tips are very2 useful and helpful..trust me cause it works for me! Hehehe...
