I have my final approval already, it was certainly a long wait, and i sympathise with all of you waiting!! My assessment day was on the 7th January, and my Final Interview on the 8th January. My final Apporoval came on the 7th April!! thats 3 months of waiting and a lot of stress...

Just hang in there guys. the wait is worth it in the end, and just remember, no news is good news!!!

Nikedo, will you still join on the 16th May regardless of when your final approval comes?

SENA...

HI,
I really imagine how you feel, I had a second Final Interview some days ago and I couldn't help myself thinking like... what did I do wrong last time?.. during the interview I felt I bit more comfortable but still hesitating in some questions. That's normal, I think.
This time I gave them everything they requested, pictures, copies, etc. and I just wait for 'THE CALL' I think the best thing you can do is trust yourself, and let's see what happens. Everytime you try (attend an OD)is different, different ppl will be there and stuff, and you can't know what the outcoming can be, if you don't try first and do your best!

GOOD LUCK! Just do your best! and be yourself!

No worries!
The recruiters notified us all that they needed A LOT of crew- so no specific qouta was given to them on how many they could "bring"...however, they also said that the standard requirements still stood as normal- I have a feeling most of the 20 made it through all the way, it was a great mix of ppl

Advanced pay

Please carry some amount of cash to meet the expense of 3-4 days (Preferably please carry UAE Dirham as you may find it difficult on Friday to exchange money for your needs, you will receive an amount of Dhs.500/ + an advance of Dhs.2000/- from your first salary (advance payment).

Hope this helps...this information comes from the final briefing email. (4 days before the DOJ you will get it...of course you must have received the final approval email first)

Record Breaking Waiting Time!!!!

Hi All,

I think my application broke the record in regards to waiting to hear back from cabin crew recruitment team in Dubai.

I waited 2 months and five days for the results of final interview. After the golden call, sent in my medicals and waited another FIVE (5) weeks to hear back for my final approval. And I had to call them MANY many MANYYY times to finally get an answer. I believe one night I dialed their number FIFTEEN times until I finally came through.

The moral of the story,... yes there is a lot of waiting,... but just be patient. As they say,... no news is good news. So just be positive and patient. Good things will come to good people.

GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE OUT THERE!!!!!! I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST,.. and most importantly,... I WISh YOU ALL LOTS AND LOTS OF PATIENCE!!!!

and who is leaving Toronto to go to Dubai???? ANyone else but me>>>??

Final interview

I had my final interview on the 14th of April. For the finals around 20 people remained. Does anyone have an idea of what percentage usually are accepted.

At the interview the recruiter said we initially would receive an email to respond to and then be contacted by phone. Is this right or just a way of saying you wont make it? After my interview the recruiter remained and chatted with me for quite a time. Is this a good sign?

Another thing...I am an Anglo Australian guy, does this play against me. I was given the impression Emirates prefer an ethnic look for their male crew. Any thoughts?

Bkkfly...

If you get an email, it means you didn't get in, if you get a phone call, you're in.

Don't worry, there are heaps of Aussie blokes working for Emirates, nothing is really a disadvantage. I'm half thai half aussie, but look completely aussie and I got through, so it's nothing to worry about.

Good luck!

birthmark

Hi guys and gals!
Im new here although Ive already spent a lot of time reading your posts. Im planning to attend an OD in Bratislava in two weeks and Im really worried about it coz it seems to be so tough!
I would like to ask you few questions before attending it.it would be great if you could answer:
1.is it a problem if i have a visible brown birthmark on my neck and arm? i`ve read on PPRuNe that one girl was sent home because of it. I was advised to cover it but as its convex, it doesnt work. I want to remove it but now its too late coz I dont want to have a scarf on my "D"day
2.what about the scoliosis, do they reject you if you have it?
3.what should i take with me for the open day?should i print the resume i have filled on their web site or can i use my own? do you think its a good idea to join the cover letter as well?
Ive already collected several very useful informations on these forums, now Im trying to organize them and I will put them here as soon as I find a little bit more time.
I keep my fingers crossed for all the EK wannabees!!!!!!!!
