Emirates Interview Questions & Tips

How to Get a Job at Emirates

Jobs at Emirates begin with filling out an application form or going to a hiring event. Managers tend to contact successful applicants within a few weeks to start the interview process. The airline often conducts phone interviews if location is an issue.

Opportunities at Recruitment Events

While candidates can apply online for most positions, some require attending an Open Day. These roles include cabin crew and other Emirates jobs that involve travel. The event allows hopefuls to submit an application or resume in person. This gives them a great chance to impress management.

Initial Testing Phase

Whether during an Open Day or a scheduled interview with Emirates, applicants will meet the staff for a first assessment. This stage of the hiring process includes personality and reach tests. Workers must pass an English proficiency exam as well.

Bring the Right Materials

All hopefuls need to bring copies of their resumes and passports to an Emirates job interview. If applying for a cabin crew position, the airline requires additional items, such as photographs. This helps the company identify an applicant for security purposes.

What Interview Questions Might Emirates Ask?

If selected for a job interview, a candidate may hear questions like:

Quality Candidates, Further Interviews

For strong contenders, there may be more than one Emirates interview. These meetings typically include job-related questions or prompts, such as:

Always Be Professional in Emirates Interviews

Stand Out from the Crowd

It is important to make a good impression during the Emirates interview process. Remember to maintain eye contact and be polite when speaking with the hiring staff. Prospective workers need to carry themselves in a way that fits the airline's high standards.

What to Wear to the Interview

How Should You Dress?

Emirates interviews require strict professional business attire. Job seekers should dress in formal clothing. Women need to wear a suit jacket, a skirt that falls an inch below the knee, a blouse, and heels. Men need a full suit, dress shirt, tie, and formal work shoes. All interviewees must look well-groomed and conservative with no visible tattoos.

Length of the Emirates Interview Process

Depending on the position, successful candidates often obtain an Emirates job within a month of applying. However, since the company conducts multiple interviews per person, this can vary. Background checks and drug tests are common in the hiring process.

  • Mary says:

    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…
