Advice to Management
Make the housing more liveable, I know some crew who live in the middle of nowhere.
I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Emirates (Nottingham, England) in March 2012.
Very professional, friendly interview, enjoyed the whole process even though it was tough! They do a big screening process, starting with cv drop off, height reach test, group scenarios, one on one interviews.
