Recruitment process

Final Interview

My final interview was at 9am on Tuesday 24 April 2018. After the assessment day I had got the train back home to London, spent one night there, went to work and then was on a train back up to Manchester that night! I felt drained but was so excited for the interview. As I said in my previous post, I am not very confident in group interview situations, so I was so relieved that the final interview was just one-on-one as I knew I perform much better.

Prior to the interview, I received an email asking me to complete an online psychometric test, which is basically a personality test that looks at how you handle situations.

My very first question was based on my results from the psychometric test. For example, my results showed that I was very organised but I was not very persuasive. The recruiter asked me why I wasn’t persuasive and asked me about a time when I had persuaded someone.

The rest of the interview was very much like any other interview. However, all answers had to be very specific. Luckily I had prepared lots of specific examples beforehand so I was able to answer the questions without any problems. The interview lasted about 45 minutes. It was so hard to tell how I had done. As some points I felt very at ease with the recruiter, and then suddenly it would become very serious again!

I thought I had done ok but I honestly didn’t know as the recruiter gave away nothing! She told me I would hear back within 4-6 weeks.

Back to London I went to patiently await the results….

  • […] The reason I started my blog was because I used to read so many other blogs before I joined Emirates, as I found it so inspiring, as well as helpful during the recruitment process. I got so many tips and tricks from reading blogs so I thought I would give my input on what it takes to become Emirates Cabin Crew. Although Emirates are not currently hiring at the moment, when they do, hopefully other people may find this helpful. I already have some posts back when I first started on my Open Day, Assessment Day and Final Interview.  […]
