Hi by any chance does anyone on here have any tips on negotiating with Emirates? Any thoughts on how much room there is on an initial offer?

Thanks

Hello all!

Hey guys! hope all is well! I have been following this thread since the beginning and Now its time I break the silence! I attended the interview for customer service professional on the 30th april and on the 13th May I received the similar email as most of you got.. ' you have been shortlisted but no vacancy yet' I have been counting since then and its now 47 days been passed and yet no call or email :\ I really hope That I hear something good and soon as I really want to quit my present job and move as its trash! I feel motivated when I see threads here from members who are in similar positions and waiting .. so hope this wait is worth the wait!

Thank you so much for asking. I had the interview today.

Yes, it went well. That's what I think at least. It was relatively short for about 20 - 25 minutes. The panel included the HR specialist and the Line Manager of the department. Firstly, I had to briefly explain what I am currently doing and what I have done in the past, then they asked if I understood the job description and what the connections are with my current level of expertise. Also had to highlight what I thought would be the challenges. Then some very short questions about certain systems I had mentioned on my CV. After that it came to close with some questions about whether I was married, kids and the most interesting as usual: the salary expectation and what I currently earn now. I just put up an higher range than I am earning now. Around the 20-21K mark. Excluded housing and the other benefits associated with grade 9. Although I am very aware that it might work against me, the reason for the high range was that my wife-in the worst case scenario-will not work. I just am always a bit frank about these things.

Anyhow, they seem to just take note and said that they will come back to me at the end of next week.

Do you think it was wrong for me to give those figures? I am just wondering now. ... Oh well, no guts, no glory.

Well happy to hear.

I think you did good since you are still in the average with 20-21K but I don't the pay scale ...

hope you will get news soon and will be able to fly to dubai !

Now don't think too much about that and take rest

How much does Emirates pay attention to health-related issues for corporate positions?

I knew a senior aircraft maintenance engineer who had a full medical in his home country before coming out here and, if I remember correctly, had another medical check-up here.

Interesting. What would be considered a disqualifying healthcare issue?
