Dear Jannah!

Thank you for your reply. As far as I understand, you are in the same situation - still waiting, aren't you? I've heard some facts that it takes really long from the FI till the time you leave. The reason of why I am worried is my wife who went working to Dubai (but to the other company, not the Emirates) in November 2012, and it's kind of torture waiting for the departure date I do update the profile from time to time, but it doesn't help Their silence to my letter confirms the policy you've mentioned "DONT CALL US WE WILL CALL YOU"...
Approx once per 2 months the interviews are organized in our country. Different companies recruit the staff here, i.e. Emirates, Emaar Group, Paris Group, Al Tayer and others. I'm starting to think why shouldn't I try some of them? Is the Emirates worth waiting for so long?

Its for you to decide. Its all in your hand, you can also try to apply with those company, Emaar is also good, but EMIRATES IS BETTER among all these companies, you will have an opportunity to grow in emirates, yes it is worth waiting for, but sometimes its also depends on your position. you can avail a lot of benefits if you work for Emirates, that's why almost every one wants to be part of it.

I was thinking the right thing, they are looking for a suitable position for us that's why they are holding our application for so long. She said they will inform us after 2 weeks about the outcome of the test, they will still consider our previous application if we don't pass the PC test.
How about you? any updates? hope they will call you soon..they will for sure, the question is WHEN??
Wow! Good luck Jannah! Hopefully you will get the GC after two weeks. Will keep my fingers crossed while wishing for an update. Thank you for the info.

At the end of oct, 2012, I had the successful English test and the interview with the representatives of the EG in our country. In a week after the interview took place, I got the phone call from Dubai and was sent the e-mail with the job description and payment conditions and was supposed to answer whether I agreed or not, for sure I was I was also told to register at emiratesgroupcareers, to fill the application form and apply for any Dubai-based position. All of this was done. It's february 2013, and I still haven't got any further instructions, e-mails or phone calls. Other guys, passing the interview at the same time with me, have already left, while I'm still 'hanging' :/ I sent the e-mail (to the box from which all the instructions and descriptions were sent) asking about my situation, but no one answered. Dear all, give me some piece of advice I do know I have to wait, but is ok to last for such a while? Or it will be better to make a phone call to the number they called me from? I'm so much tired of that stupid waiting!
Hello best porsh! I know how you feel. Hopefully we will all have the answer to our questions. Good luck!

Hi Guys,

This is really a great forum, where people from all walks of life can exchange ideas/share advice and experiences about moving to/living in the UAE.

I tried going through about 40+ pages of this forum, but unfortunately I could not find a response for the questions I had in mind.

Background
I got contacted by Emirates for a skype interview (they will tell me the exact date 'soon') for a finance position (I am located in Canada). Here are my questions:

1 - What do I expect from a skype interview (I have never had one before). I have read other forums mentioning that it will be a Technical Interview. Can anyone elaborate/provide some examples?

2 - What is the next phase of the interview process like (when you have to do the Interview/psychometric evaluations, group presentation, etc?

3 - How is it to work in DNATA/Emirates? Company culture? Career progression???

4 - What is the timeline I am looking at (I know that it takes FOREVER for things to get done)

5 - ANY advice/pointers/words of wisdom to land this role would be great.

Thanks everyone for all your help and support

Cheers

Hello, expat!
Thank you for your support! I believe we'll soon meet there, in the Emirates laughing of how inpatient we were
By the way, guys, what was the level of payment you where 'evaluated'? I was only ek.04. It seems to be a really low salary :/ How is it there about being promoted?

Hello Aaron! I am residing in Dubai so I cannot answer your question regarding the skype interview. But from what I've read on the earlier thread if you are successful with the skype interview you will be invited here in Dubai for the assessment.

Based on my experience, I attended the assessment day (test on basic english and some computation), interview (based on work experience). It's been months since my last interview so it is really a long wait on my part.

As what I've heard, the line manager must approve either the promotion or if you wish to transfer to a different department.

Hope the info helps. Good luck!
