Take it easy! The interview is not difficult, just be yourself, you'll be fine!

All other detailed information regarding the interview, I'm sure you'll be able to find them in this thread.

Hello Guys! A hearty good morning greeting to you all!

Please can you advise below:

I have been selected by EK for a Grade 4 position, and now am at the stage of accepting the contract. Looking at the salary that they offer, it's not really that appealing to me as I have a master's degree and worked in UK for 2 years and UAE for 7 month, so I am not entry level.

Would it still be possible to negotiate the package with HR Coordinate? And how?

Thanks!

In regards to the guy who has been put on hold. I'm 99% certain this will be for the new airport as they have so many vacancies to fill but they don't need them yet so they are trying to get a head start. If you have passed the assessment as they have said then they will be in touch if/when they have a vacancy.

Just be patient, everything in the middle east takes time. lots and lots of time.
Hi ,

I have been interviewed by DNATA for the post of SDO and it has been a month i have not received any mail or feedback .

I am now starting to have a second thought as to whether I should accept Emirates contract or not.

It's Customer Service Agent--Dnata, Grade 4 position. Salary wise, it isn't good but rather sad looking to be honest, and the position is a bit low as far as I am concerned.

Just a couple of questions,

1. What career progressions are there available for this position?
2.Can I move to other departments after I join the group within several months if I am performing well? Or do I have to complete one year?
3. In terms of salary, is it still negotiable?

I have only 2 days left to accept the offer and I couldn't get hold of the HR coordinator.
Any suggestions/advice everyone?
Thank you in advance.

1. What career progressions are there available for this position?

Can't help you here but I guess it's exactly the same as other departments. Juat keep in mind the huge number of people working in the Customer Support for Emirates.

2.Can I move to other departments after I join the group within several months if I am performing well? Or do I have to complete one year?

The second one and you will need the approval of your line manager anyway.

3. In terms of salary, is it still negotiable?

As most of people here said in the past, asking for more will not hurt you. There are salary bands, you can ask, the worst thing that might happen is them saying no.

Thank you very much NjxNa! I have accepted the offer online but I will still try to contact the HR coordinator to talk to her regarding salary, so far I couldn't reach her. Strange enough, I didn't get any phone call from them but all email/text msg, now that I have accepted the contract, hopefully they will call me to advise following procedures...

Recruiters and coordinators are different. You'll be now assigned a coordinator who will guide you through the pre joining procedures. They are really helpful usually (always keep in mind the number of people hired per week they have to take care of).

hi guys, how's everything? any news?
does anyone of you got any idea about my matters..
its been 2 months and two weeks now since my final interview and up to now I didn't received any mail like most of you have received after your FI. Should I consider it as UNSUCCESSFUL even though my HR coordinator provided me his contact for further updates regarding my application he just said it was successful but there was no further e-mail confirmation, It really frustrate me now..=(

thank you, and congratulations for those who just received their contract!!
