yea, that's probably the reason why..but i thought some of us should have at least given the chance to move to the 2nd round and let the emirates people decide if they want us or not..
oh well, what do i know... i'll just wait for the next qatar recruitment. i missed the one on the 20th..

Emirates Walk-in 26/Feb

Postby FluffCloud » Sun, 27 Feb 2011 5:07 pm

Hi all,

I went for the interview yesterday. Have passed the pre screening by the agency and now waiting for the next interview which will be conducted by the emirates people.

I noticed there arent much information you can find on the web so i will try to post whatever i know from the interview here to help you guys for your next interview.

So yesterday i went at 11.30am. Wasnt keen in the interview actually because i dont know how to get to the hotel. But looking at the photos which i've already taken, i just dont want to waste the money and went to try out.

When i arrived at the interview place, it's not as crowded as SIA interview or rather no crowd at all(just a few people here and there) Submitted my resume and photo, then do the reach test and went inside the room to sit.
When i was inside, i observed the people around. There were quite a few from Phillipines, Korea and China. Everyone seems to be with a friend and i'm all alone so i started talking to people around me. I found out that many are ex-crew and a few were from SIA(really gorgeous girls). Everyone there dressed very professionally, most of them wore a jacket.

Soon after, we were grouped in groups of 15(I cant remember which group i'm in). Went in the interview room, there were 2 interviewers from the agency. One of them is the CEO of the agency and they are really nice and funny people! They said some jokes which makes us laughed and be less nervous(i was nervous la, not sure about the rest) So the 15 of us were sitted in a circle, and the interviewers will walk around. We were asked to discuss a topic on 'If you have a chance, would you choose to be Man or Woman in your next life' Everyone talked so much!! Especially those ex-crews, they are so good at talking! When we were discussing, the interviewers will walk around and observe you and i dont think they really concentrate on your discussion unless you said something funny or mispronounce certain words loudly. Do note that before you speak, it would be better to first introduce yourself as in just your name. I did not do that but the rest of the 14 girls did. So i think it would be more polite. I enjoyed myself so much at this discussion because the atmosphere wasnt as tense as SIA interview.

So after we came up with a conclusion, we were asked to wait outside for the results. I didn't expect myself to be selected as i didnt talked much but well, i think for yesterday as long as you can speak chinese/cantonese you will have a chance to get selected in the pre-screening. We were given a form to fill in and wait for a briefing later in that day.

During the briefing, the agency people will show us some videos and brief us on what to prepare for next interview. I heard there will be a 6 months ban if you have failed at any previous emirates interview. And for those we are not 21 yet, hehe like myself, as long as you are less than 6 months away from your 21st birthday, it's ok to go for the interview. :) Emirates is very particular about teeth and English not skin complexion. As in, you dont have to have acne/pimple clear skin, just be able to conceal and look professional.

After the briefing, i think anyone will be super keen to join the airline because they will really take good care of their crew. Oh ya, but please be reminded that you will be based in Dubai and the contract is 3 years. So think twice.

Ok, these are all that i know as for now. Feel free to ask me about this pre-screen interview, i will try to answer if i can.


Current/Ex-crew of Emirates:
Would like to ask if there's a dental examination when you pass the interview? What is it on?

Why not? Emirates is doing well and that pay wise is almost the same as SQ. If your dream is to be a cabin crew, don't limit your chances! Every recruitment from any airline would be an opportunity! :D
And yesterday for guys, there isnt any interview. Just submit your resume and they will look at your photo. If they like it or think you got potential, you're in for next round.

I was in the same group!

FluffCloud: I agree that the interview was really relaxing! I didn't get past 1st round but I actually enjoyed the process a lot! The staff present were awesome. I did state I could speak Mandarin with ability to understand Cantonese, Teochew (I'm not fluent in speaking). Did you state your languages on your resume?

Hey hey, nope i didn't. I only raise my hand when the interviewer asked who can speak Mandarin or Cantonese. But for my group, they selected all the chinese girls. So it seems like they were shortlisting people based on the requirement only for this round.
