Excellent oppurtunity to grow

You have to make the place a fun one to work in

A few moments one might feel out of place being in a different environment. But when one grasps the work flow then all comes through flowing. The place becomes home and workmates becomes family.

Cabin Crew: Dubai based

Before COVID and in general up until 3 years ago it was ok. Very good money and lots of benefits and allowances. The job was hard but there was still a decent work/life balance. Things started to change and when COVID hit the airline started cutting cost too much. I wasn’t made redundant but I left because Dubai in general it is not a safe place to live in for too long (they change laws often, weird working age limits, no pension, no real medical assistance, maternity leave is not paid) and it’s too hot all year round.

Pros

Lots or deals, allowances, good pay

Cons

They do what they want in terms of working laws

Excellent place to work at.

Excellent place to work at. Great opportunity to live in Dubai and travel the world while working and making money. You do get good flight benefits. If you call sick, you get penalized (delays on upgrades or no upgrade al all, warning letters...). You work a lot, long service routines in the cabin, long shifts because of the ultra long haul international flights. It's also a diverse, multi-culture environment with great opportunity to make good friends from all over the world. Awesome people from different backgrounds working for Emirates. Working for them was challenging but it was one of the best experience of my life.

Pros

Paid crew accommodation, travel around the world, meet new people, live in Dubai, travel benefits, different culture exposure, great life experience.

Cons

Long hours on duty, up to 20 hours or more

Dubai is amazing

Dubai has a diverse working culture and you will work with many people from different parts of the world. Living in Dubai in the best part though, as there is so much to do and it’s easy for western people to enjoy a lavish lifestyle.Working at Emirates is enjoyable as it’s easy to make new friends. The management team are also supportive to help you settle in. Once you have settled in it’s pretty tough going. The management processes are immature and are constantly changing this leads to confusion and restricted progress, especially given there are unrealistic timescales set. Overall I would definitely recommend working in Dubai but be prepared for a bit of a surprise when it comes to getting things done working at Emirates.

Cons

Immature processes

Travel perks are awesome and diverse culture at workplace

All in all, Emirates is a wonderful company to be employed in. It has great company culture and offers endless training and workshops to employees for growth and development. Travel perks are awesome as we get an annual ticket and other concessional tickets for ourselves and our family.

Pros

Tickets

Cons

no promotion, some management needs to have leadership training

Ok

Overall company's environment is good but some little thing need to highlight.Before you join Emirates airline. Must be sure your self that which role you want and what is your dream position.Airside operations is bit hard . Because we have to face all weather directly.

Pros
