So...is there a link or someone willing to describe the latest interview process

When I did the process 2 years ago it was 3 days, now some says it is 4 days.
Anyone knows and wants to talk about it? I mean the interview process, not the "WHY OR NOT" someone should come to work @ Emirates.
3 friends are coming to try and I'd like to tell them how it is going to go.
thx

Thumbs up Emirates requirements for interview have changed

I was told today, to qualify for an interview with Emirates ,you now need 4000 hours total time with 2000 hours on commercial multi engine jet over 10 tons OR 2500 hours on any multi engine commercial jet over 30 tons .Good luck .

Hi!

Both of those requirements sound correct to me, via the KLAS job fair. EK said the requirements were lowered (again) on Wed 21 Apr 2010.

It was 55 tonnes, then 20/25, and now 10.

PS-I re-activiated my EK application, as I have been having trouble finding a US-based job. Had my app in at EK for about 2 years, but did not know I never met the minimums, according to the guy at the KLAS job fair. The minimums posted on the website were incorrect, according to him.

2500 TT ? That will open the floodgate for lots of girls and boys from the LOCO,S . No quick command with them either, sure we gonna see a lot of younsters the coming yeaars. Might be refreshing?

Hello all

Does anyone know if you can apply with less than the minimum hours required and subsequently go through the selection process with the intention of joining once meeting the requirements? I currently have 1500hrs A320 fleet.

Kind Regards
Roy

Did even hear about other requirements. You can now apply although if you have one arm or one leg missing ( or both together provided they are not on the same side ) .
But there are also conditions to follow. An FO on AIB fleet must still have its right arm and a CPT or DEC its left one ( due to FBW side stick position) . For 777 there are no objections so far.

so I guess future loho loco defo's will complain having to nurse loho loco dec's around uncharted territory ....


Sorry, had to get rid of that one, on a more serious note now:

I don't mind low hour future collegues, some very low hour locals do a great job, just as others should not come closer than a wingspan to an airliner.

It all runs down to proper assessment and thereafter proper training and follow up on training.

Unfortunately the drying up supply has made assessment a threat, as too many are allowed to slip through who shouldn't. Training has become better, the new team making a great effort, only tarnished by some instructor relicts who, for obvious reasons, can't be weeded out. Follow up on training and checking is generally good, again tarnished by the ones that regularly demonstrate an inadequate level, even fail checks, just to be reinstalled by a few phone calls from relatives ....

From EK website:


Requirements: For the position of First Officer (prior to joining):
  • A minimum of 4,000 hours total flying time.
  • A minimum of 2,000 hours flown in multi-crew, multi-engine jet aircraft. Preference will be given to pilots with > 2000 hours on medium to heavy sized jets.
  • Applicants must hold a current ICAO ATPL.
  • English language fluency is essential (minimum to ICAO ELP Level4).
  • All applicants must be current within the last 12 months prior to the date of joining.
No mention about min. tons anymore... another sign that they are not getting enough pilots.

Hello Roy.

My guess is, that the system may filter you out before you even become "visible" to a recruiter if you don't yet meet the minimums. But do try. If the database keeps your information, it may work in your favor to have applied now as it shows determination when you do get an interview after meeting the requirements.

If you have that flight time, especially with the 737 PIC, Emirates is about the last place I'd be applying.

Hi comrades,

Is it possible for a Bahraini with a JAA CPL+IR (Frozen ATPL) to apply at Emirates?

Thank you all!

Are all new hire F/O's only assigned the B777/330/340? What about the A-380?
Are they lateral moves?
