Emirates Interview Questions & Tips

Hiring process information for an interview at Emirates

How to Get a Job at Emirates

Emirates Airlines uses a multistage interview process to screen for qualified job candidates. The United Arab Emirates-based airline often hosts interview sessions called Open Days, which give all applicants interested in jobs the opportunity to personally submit a resume or CV and speak with airline hiring personnel. Scheduled online and regularly held throughout the world, Open Days consist of an initial assessment, language test, psychometric assessment, and a concluding interview conducted individually. After registering online, applicants must bring copies of resumes and passports to open interview sessions. The airline also requests photographs from job seekers interviewing for cabin crew positions.

Types of Questions Asked Initially

At the initial assessment, hiring representatives present company information, review applicant resumes, and ask general questions like, "Why do you want to work for Emirates?," and "What do you know about the airline?". Only selected candidates advance past the initial assessment. The airline conducts the remaining rounds of interviews either the same day or the following day. The subsequent interview sessions generally feature group discussions, a personal essay, language tests, and a psychometric personality assessment. Emirates also schedules qualified applicants for final interviews at this stage of the hiring process.

Advancing to Final Interviews

Candidates advancing to the final round of job interviews typically meet with an Emirates hiring official individually. The competency-based interview session often includes questions requesting specific information, such as, "Which of your previous jobs was the most challenging and why?," and "How do you react when your coworkers disagree with your decisions or ideas?". At the end of the meeting, most interviewers allow time for applicant questions, which should be formulated ahead of time to demonstrate professionalism and serious interest in the job. Candidates should also adhere to standard business etiquette when dressing for job interviews. While the airline uses Open Days interviews to hire for entry-level positions like cabin crew, the airline requires pilots and other highly skilled workers to interview at head offices in Dubai, UAE.

    Until now they haven’t call back for the schedule of my interview…

    I already got 2 interview from them by phone.. and now i am waiting for this face to face interview…

    I hope they call.

    I applied for the position of a food technologist..

    are they really that long before they call back..

  17. Mary

    Hi everyone. I applied as a Food Technologist. I am done with the phone interview in HR and Operations. 2 weeks ago they called me again and told me that they are going to schedule me a face to face interview and a facility tour. They said that they would call me again the last week of April or the first week of May, but until now they are not calling me back..

    Are they really that long to call me back?

    This waiting situation drives me crazy… waahhh…
