Hi guys!

I applied to Emirates last week.

Just received a mail saying that they will contact me by phone for a 5-10 minutes call to discuss about my application.

Any info about that?
Kind of questions I can expect?

Thank you!!

EK Current Hiring Status

Hi,

Is anyone aware of the current hiring status at EK? I am an FO with a European airline approaching 2,000hrs A320 time considering applying to EK.

I recently heard a rumour that a friend of a friend in a similar situation applied, was put through the interview process (supposedly passed it?) and was then told he would go in the hold pool till he had 3,000hrs before they will consider him for type rating. Does anyone know how much truth there is to this?

It would seem strange for EK to put someone through a full interview process in DXB with the intention of putting them in a hold pool for 1+ years.

Any feedback would be much appreciated, thanks.

Many things are strange at EK, it’s a way of life here!
They can say one thing one day and change it the next! If they decide something will happen there’s nothing you can do about it!No protection here for you. You have to accept it during the application process as well.
taste of things to come at EK
“Keep discovering”
”Hello tomorrow”
both very apt!!!!!

What airline is not like that?

It's the 2 buckets theory (One you fill with satisfaction and the other you fill with.... Well you can fill in the blanks) when you come to any airline, you will be filling both buckets at every single job out there

I can't understand this. They do know you are approaching the full 2000hrs do they?

Hello there,

I was wondering if anybody would have rough numbers as to how many Australians are working either at Emirates, or at the ME3 in general.

Cheers!!

It's hard to say. You looking for Australian Australians, New Zealand Australians or South African Australians? If you are from the from the tax office I think it's none. If you just need the number for some quiz night, probably a couple of hundred at EK as pilots. More as cabin crew. A few engineers. There may have been a few in management, can't think of any in flight ops, but they would all be considered British now.

Thanks for the reply Don. I'm just trying to get rough numbers of how many Aussie expat pilots are around the place for a little project I'm trying to put together. The tax orifice can go jump

The HR department at the Australian Space Agency should be able to tell you.

I'm thinking of applying. I have about 3650 total time. Over 3000 turbine but it's all in King Airs. No jet time. Will that be a problem?
