Hello Everyone, [smilie=bn49.gif]
I can empathize what sort of mixed feelings (excited and scared) you must be going through just before the emirates open day/assessment day/final interview. I have gone through it all and let me tell you, it is one of the best experiences and I am sure you will like it too. Firstly, the whole process taught me so much and I met such amazing people there. Even though I was scared and nervous at so many instances, but honestly it was all worth it.
I will try to put everything in here so that a lot of people can benefit from this post.It started with getting the right outfit (especially for girls). I got myself a pencil black skirt and a white collar shirt for the inner and paired it with a black blazer (My personal choice is black when its formal but you can wear any other color which is subtle and compliments the professional outlook).The whole process was divided in three days where Day1 was the open day, Day2 was assessment day and Day 3 was the final interview day. Usually in locations where there are less people for open day it is amalgamated with day 2 and the open day and assessment day happen at the same time. For my location which is Paris we hadn’t a lot of people so I will start with Day 1.
Day1- I woke up early, I was leaving 2.5 hours before the event time.I managed to get to the location around 1 hrs prior. It started at 9:00am sharp but I was there around 8 am. Once I entered the hallway, I heard people greeting me and being very nice. I made my way inside after exchanging “good morning” and brief chat with a few candidate. As soon as the door opened we formed lines and entered the room and I managed to get a seat up front.I made sure I was sitting properly with my back straight and smiling all this time. It started with a presentation where they explained about Dubai, Emirates and certain things about the culture in Dubai as well as how the life is there. It was quite a detailed presentation so they cover almost everything. Once the presentation was over, the recruiter (only one female) asked all of us if we had any questions. There were quite a few questions from the crowd although I did not ask anything as most of the questions were answered during the presentation. Once the presentation was over, we were asked to hand in our Resumes as well as a small photograph (passport size picture). While handing in the resume and the picture, the recruiter asked a few questions. My questions were: “what are you doing now?”, “Do you speak any other language?” then I was waited for a result for almost 2 hrs. after a long wait. Pheww!! They invited me for the next round which was the assessment taking place at 2:00pm.Each candidate had a number sticker to follow and at sharp 2:00pm the conference room doors opened once again and we were asked to sit in a round (circle) setting. We were divided into a group of 3 individuals and each group was given a picture card (Mine had a pillow while others had balloon, basket, float, shoes and other everyday use objects)and another card were about career to discuss.While the discussion was in progress the recruiter would call each candidate to do the reach test and just ask random questions. Once the exercise was over each group was to stand and every member was to give a 30 second to 1 minute explanation for the use of the object they discussed, and how to relate that object with career that you have got. This stage there is no right or wrong just think out of the box. They want to see how creative you are :) Once the exercise was over, we were asked to leave the room and wait outside. The heart beat variation is just the usual happening for the assessment day. After 30 minutes the recruiter handed in a small paper saying whether you passed or failed that level. Luckily mine said “Congratulations”

Day2- Be prepared, this is quite a long day so don’t forget to sleep well and do have something for breakfast. I started my day early, I started it earlier than usual. I was the first one to reach.Within a few minutes there was another girl and then it followed. First of all for day2, I had to give an hour English test which is like any high school test so nothing to worry about. and there are a few candidates failed this state. After the test, I joined rest of the candidates and managed to grab a hot chocolate during the 30 minutes break. Once we all got back, we were divided into smaller groups of 6 this time and another groups (12 candidates) were called in the room. I had a group ahead of me so I got another 45 minutes break but believe me this was nerve breaking. I was so nervous about the final “role play” exercise that I just couldn’t wait for all of it to be over. My Group was called second in line and before going in we all knew each other well by name and I was familiar with most of the candidates. Once we entered, I was really nervous but as soon as we got the exercise where we were supposed to play the role of a manager of Furniture store and decide which customer to provide when only 2 set of bedroom were left and 8 customer were there in total, I was more engrossed in the activity. For 15 minutes as a group we discussed the 2 customer whom we would provide the 2 set of bedroom and during this time the recruiter was right there taking notes on how you listen, speak, smile, sit and just everything so be your best and stay calm and be yourself. The recruiter later played role of customer (Who was not get the bedroom set) for each candidate and showed disappointment and each candidate played the role of manager trying to explain the situation to the customer and pacify them at the same time. I was the last to go in line even though I could hear my heart beat all this time. The key to this exercise is stay calm and make sure your voice is low and you are not loud even if the recruiter shows aggression. Just be yourself and apologize and never speak while she/he is speaking and try repeating the problem to show that you understand. Keep the smile on all the time. Also note that during the group exercise, show agreement with your group and don’t speak too much (not that I mean you have to be quiet all the time). Also don’t speak when someone else is speaking, so that you listen to everyone and give a chance to everyone to speak. Once this was over, I was super excited that it is done and there isn’t much left to the day. We all came out after the exercise and were asked to wait for 15 minutes for the results. The wait was again difficult but then it was all worth it when I got another “Congratulations” message. This time it was sad too because some of the people I was friends with were to leave. We were now just 10 candidates left for the final interview round. Finally, after this we were asked to come in to fill in a few forms and understand the guidelines as well as finalize final interview date. This activity took another hour and I had my Final interview in the same day. Recruiter gave me 30 mins to take a deep breath before final interview.
Final interview - I went in the room and it was a smooth one. I have taken these questions from different sources but more or less these are the situations and questions they put in front of you. If you prepare yourself for this, you will be more confident when answering.
Q1. Name a time you had to adjust to the rules / way of doing things at a job, to accommodate a customer’s needs.
Q2. Have you ever had an issue with another employee were you disagreed on something, and how did you handle the situation?
Q3. Have you ever had a deadline at a job that you had to meet, and how did you go about getting it done on time?
Q4. Have you ever had a disagreement with a customer? What happened OR Tell me about a difficult client you had and how did you solve his/hers problem?
Q5. Name a time when your employer told you could improve on something. Tell us about a time when you received a constructive criticism feedback from your boss in one of your previous jobs?
Q6. Tell me about a time you dealt with a colleague who was not doing his share of work.
Q7. Tell us about a day in which you had a very stressful day and how was it and what did you do to make it better and how did you handle it?
Q8. Describe a situation when you had a problem with a colleague at work and how was the outcome of this situation? How did you re-solve it?
Q9. From your multi-cultural experience, what is the nationality that you would have more difficulty in dealing with the most and why? Or which one would you like it the most and why?
It was a 45 minutes to an hour interview but I had a wonderful recruiter who made me feel comfortable at every point and was very sweet and professional at the same time. Once the interview was over she showed me the exit and was very positive while closing the interview.
I do hope my experience will help you guy and thank you for SkyCoach Mam who dedicate all the power for me :P without her i couldn't come this far. I will join Emirates in a couple of week so,Best of luck to you all!! Hope my tips were helpful!! and See you on board <3 [smilie=bn33.gif]
