    I have been working at Emirates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work environment is brilliant
    VERY flexible regarding shift swaps, making it possible to go on lots of little holidays +30 days of leave a year
    Management is understanding, approachable
    Not much of a sense of hierarchy, you feel like people are on the same level
    Staff travel benefits

    Cons

    Very low salary for the UK
    Can only progress up to contact centre team leader (or other positions in the contact centre)
    Overall very limited opportunities to work in other departments unless based in the UAE
    Sales elements with no commission

    Cabin Crew Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nottingham, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Emirates (Nottingham, England) in March 2012.

    Interview

    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.
