Coach Potatoe did you know all of this before you joined Etihad? If you did then why did you join them and why complain now
Hi Easy,
I do not complain, this is only facts.

What about staff travel and leave?
And any ideas on timeframes for command upgrades?
Overall, it looks better than some of the options I've seen.

New! Subsistence Allowances

Hot off the press. Effective 01 Feb 2007, Etihad is paying subsistence allowances for layovers. This is the first announcement of further enhancements to the renumeration package.

Long overdue. One small step in the right direction. Housing MUST BE next. With these 2 issues solved, heads and minds will turn inwards to help it become a very good company to work for.

Maybe some additional help???

Hi everybody

I have my interview with Etihad and rest of the assessment process scheduled from February 20 - 22; I checked all the threads (I did my homework) but didn't find any explicit information regarding technical quiz, English test, psyhometric test, group exercises... personal interview itself??.. questions asked???.. any information from anybody who had interview with EY recently??.. I used the booklet "Preparing for Emirates Interview: The Pilot's Guide".. can I rely on it or there is something else??.. any suggestion??.. adivise???

Thank you for help .. I would really appreciate..

Happy landing to all of you...

Hello all Etihad experienced people.
This thread is entitled Etihad employment- all you need to know.
Well, I've had a good look round but can't find much on the substance of the Etihad recruitment process. Several other guys have appealed in a similar vein. Does this info exist. Can anyone assist. Any help appreciated.

New Slary package does little

For a new joiner it may seem that there has been improvement but to those here many are not happy.

Inflation (now over 20 percent)and housing (going up 30 percent) are going up every day while your take home pay does not . Also with the durham somehow tied directly to the dollar those of us from Eurpoe are taking further cut as dollar sinks. EY has no currency protection as EK does.

If you should look closely at EK, I know some of us are going to. This management doesn't treat employees as anything other than a slave. While it is run by Europeans, they are not the ones who approve contracts.

I see very little future here, especially for new joiners as you will be at bottom on "senority list" with only a few more aircraft to be delivery.
