I got the you're in the hold pool email. Can you ballbark me any ideas about the hold pool? Does that mean they are likely to consider you soon for an interview? How many applications are in the pool at once, best case time frame for an interview etc.
It does mean you are up for consideration. However, the pool can be deep and if someone with better qualifications gets into the pool they will be at a shallower depth than you, therefore your time in the pool may be more or less than others.
Yeah right, . . . . . i got the you're in the holding pool since 1993 (6,000 hours) until today (11,250 hours + 1,300 P1) and still in the holding pool, . . . . wrong skin color and not from OZ_land, Yanky_land or Euro_land.
The rate is 1 brown asian for every 20 intakes + 1 local (permanent) F/O, to please the Makhtum family, . . . . period, . . . . . so if your brown and asian go join EY.
Good Luck Brownies, . . . any fish fillet to go with your brownies and french fries lads?
Yo Bid G, . . . . . no thanks, I'm NOT interested any more, . . . . . like it where I am coz the management people are local Arabs and they are nice people - ie NON RACIST like me.
For what it is worth I am NOT the RACIST, guess who??? look around you and if you have the time look at Saudia & Gulf Air, . . . . . . who are the majority in these places, . . . . . why don't they promote and train locals, . . . . which is what we Ex-Pats are all about since those colonial days. WE ARE ONLY HERE TO HELP, . . . . . NOT TO PLANT OUR FOOT DEEP IN THE GROUND AND CREATE MORE PLACES FOR OUR KIND ONLY, . . . . matey
Do your job and go home man, . . . . . to me there's only ONE RACE = THE HUMAN RACE.
I guess I am lucky in a way, I am not dark brown, but I am asian.I don't see the things that you mention during my interview.
I have see ozzie, Yankie, and some turkish and 2 asian and some S.A, Italian......on the other group , I see Philipino, Korean.......so I don't see what you said in my interview, maybe the rate has been changed over the year . uhhh!!! Maybe just that month is Asian month for the interview.
Just point to share, everyone come for different reason, for me I just want to change for a new life (good or bad, I will know soon)
Have to say I'm amazed at L_D comments, no hope for some people I just hope you managed to find a chip big enough to go on the other shoulder to help balance you up.
Secondly I wonder why anyone who has read what has been written about EK should still contemplate coming. Yes pay could be an issue if you come from Asia / Sub continent, but surely the fact that you have NO rights at EK, that the company can change rules and regs at the drop of a hat with NO comeback should cloud the glittering PR the recruiters put out.
Be under no illusion if you do get out of the hold pool, if you do pass the interview and sim ride and finally get the job offer and accept, from then on you have only two options which you have all heard before ie LEAVE or PUT UP WITH IT. The leaving process is long winded, visas, bank loans to pay offetc, you will also have to fork out a lot of money to get to where you want to go ie removal expenses etc ( or you can do a runner which means you leave everything and wait for the consequences later on) or the other option which is the easier ie PUT UP WITH IT. This may explain why so many people are on this forum, its the only way to let off steam!!!!!
Lorry Driver I'm glad you are not coming because the thought of a long haul flight with you next to me for numerous hours is unthinkable, unimaginable, horrifying,etc etc etc - so enjoy a long and fruitful career where you are now, it is probably the best option!!!!!
I have to agree with SS, I think a lot of people would like to leave, but the financial hooks that the company puts on us for the first few years, plus the beauraucratic BS of biblical proportions to get out of the UAE definately clouds your thinking.
It's not an excuse, but it is a large mental drag if you do want to leave
