Flew with a rejoiner recently, they said something about if you rejoin more than a year after your resign date, you start over with regards to staff number and grade/seniorority. Could be outdated though. They also said it took the company about a year from when she contacted them until they completed all the process and she flew to DXB the second time.
As you say it all depends on past record, company requirements and the reason you left in the first place (Almost all of the re joiners I have met had to leave for family reasons)
Thanks for the info! Any idea how long he/she had resigned for before re-joining? I left in august for family reasons and really want to try re-join. I am surprised it takes so long to just get the forms. Holding thumbs i wont have to wait a whole year to hear anything
Hey guys I've got a couple of questions regarding recruitment.
I've been interested in joining EK for a while but as I'm still at college till May but thinking of applying quite soon after leaving as I've a bit of customer service experience already and thought I'd chance my arm. Have they been known to take college leavers or do they prefer people to have a full time job before hand??
There is a OD in my country in January however would this be too soon to attend as I don't finish college till May so even if I did get lucky would it be pointless to attend???
^ I heard you can let the recruiter know that you can't join until a certain date and that will be taken into account. As of now, they have crew joining lined up until April! So by the time they approve you, you might have a few months to wait before you can even get to Dubai.
I am going to attend the next OD in canada. I am wondering if anybody can tell me what is actually the salary (monthly + allowance) of a flight attendant with EK? Can we save a lot of money while working there?
I am not going to Dubai to spend money for fun or having party everyday off. I will keep my expenses to the minimum. I want to make money and save it. Can anyone tell me about that?
As far as I am aware your medical test is valid only for 6 months. So if you could not join within 6 months of starting the process I would not bother wasting the time. Wait until you have a month or two left of the course, then apply. Or they will just tell you to come back later.
Abesha, the amounts of pay are on the web site, you can calculate it by the basic plus the flying hours. They vary by fleet but you would do between 70 (rare) and 110 or so hours (chock to chock is paid, not total duty) a month. Reserve month (every 7 months) varies either very busy or not at all)
Plus you would get allowances at outstation on layovers but it depends how disciplined you are as to whether you could rely on those.
To be very honest it's hard to save at the start but once you are settled in (after 6 months or so) very possible to save especially if you stay away from clubs/partying every night off etc)
It also depends on your personal finances. If you already have debt it will be harder to save until you pay it off, since it doesn't makes sense to save when you have debt.
Pay scale: Grade II: Basic Monthly Salary AED 4020/- tax free in the UAE Flying Pay: Is paid on an hourly basis, between chocks off and chocks on. Grade II AED 55.00 Senior Flight Steward/ess AED 83.50 Grade I AED 61.50 Purser AED 89.50 Grade I (First Class) AED 67.50 Flying pay is paid in the month following accrual. Layover Expenses: Meal allowances are paid in the currency of the country of night stop. Transport to & from the airport, and hotel accommodation is provided by the company.
Advance Money: Upon reaching Dubai, each new joiner receives AED 2500. AED 2000 will be deducted from crew salary in instalments over the first two months. The additional AED 500 can be used towards purchases for incidentals, i.e. iron, kettle, or toaster. Bringing of additional initial funds to Dubai is advisable due to the increasing prices of basic goods and services in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
I was rejected in 2012 Early March after OD and final interview in January 2012 with no explanation.
Today I receive a reconfirmation of interest email from Emirates stating that I may be fitted in coming 4-6 months training courses but only after sending additional pictures and signed image and uniform declaration.
Can somebody tell me if he/she went through the reconfirmation of interest process?
I suspect I have to do medicals and send them if again they like the pictures. What do I have to expect with this reconfirmation of interest and what are my chances?
hello everyone...i have participated at an OD on 15th of Sept, but i didn't pass....my question is, can I participate at an OD on 13th of March,or should I wait after the date of 15th to have exactly six month
I was wondering if I could get some information in how to go about applying to be part of the cabin crew. Do I need any qualifications or certificates or anything before applying? Is it true that if you work with Emirates that you are required to live in Dubai?
