FD only on for th single engine ILS.

Any feedback on the recent pass rate at LHR?

I Can confirm you need 2000hrs turboprop - first question we were asked was what aircraft do you have 20000hrs on?

Thanks. And any idea how long one can expect to wait for an interview after dropping in your app etc? And how soon do you start training provided you clear the screening process? Thanks

Contacting References

I recently finished the 4 day interview process in DXB and I was wondering how long does it take for them to contact your references after you finish the interview process?

If someone who has recently gotten a job offer can tell me exactly how long they waited before they got an email from Emirates about contacting their references, I would appreciate it. Thanks

Thumbs up Thank's for the help.

I just was curious about what to expect , i got the same mail before, i called and they asked me about my level of English, reasons to join EK and the time in advance to address an interview, one hour later they send me to the shortlist and now one month later again the same mail before the phone call .

I'll call and tell you guys. Thank you again.

Updown,

Recruiting at EK is a bit different to elsewhere. They will hire everyone in your group if they can. There is no competition. They just want to see you can play nicely with the other kids, and have the ability to fly and learn.

It's really a matter of you have the job unless you talk yourself out of it, or have a bad day in the sim.

The psych department really needs to maintain a vigilant watch because anyone joining now is out of their mind.

Out of their mind haha well said ! Or may be they want the ones that are out of their mind so that they can brain wash them.

Thumbs up Brain dead

Yes doing long haul flying on the other side of the clock ' over a long period' can lead to blood clotting and possibility of brain hemorage.
All the best to all! Caz ur gonna need it

Ignore good advice at your peril.
