Hi guys,

Anyone knows if you can reapply to EK after failed assessment? If yes, after how long?

Asking for a friend.

Monthly hours

I have a question regarding the number of hours EK pilots fly. In some posts it mentions pre-COVID they flew 105-120 block hours a month. Is the hard limited 900 block hours a year , so doing 7.5 months of 120 hours a month you would reach the limit of 900 in 12 months ? Or is there something I am missing

You will do 80-90 hours a month. Rest during a ULR doesn’t count towards the 900 hour limit.

Good afternoon,

First of all good luck for the stage 2 in DXB. I am in the same situation as you. Did you get any more feedback than on LPJ or here ? Because this forum doesn't seem to be super helpful !
And I would be really happy to maybe hear from you once you are back from DXB for your feedback if you are willing to do so of course ?

In the meantime, fingers crossed for you !

Take care

That will depend on the fleet. The guys on the 777 fleet are flying their behinds off , the 380 not as much. EK has never had a history of over staffing so don’t think for a minute it will be a holiday.

Online Interview

Hi Guys

I received an invitation to Digital Interview.
Does someone know if it will be combined with psychometric tests or it’s separate invitation?

When the rosters are created, the company will go to great lengths to avoid paying productivity pay. On a 31 day month, this kicks in at 88 block hours and on a 28 day month the threshold is 79 hours. This includes all bunk and positioning time. In general on the 777 at least, hours are not the issue but rather the inability to have enough influence over your roster from a lifestyle perspective (days off etc). I only got the days off I wanted next month after swapping with colleagues!

I don’t Know if you noticed, but there is no more Panel Interview in Dubai, is now online only - 1st stage. Anyone knows if there are any ATPL or technical questions? Or is just HR?
What about Compass test? Anyone who had it recently can share a bit ?

There's a sucker born every minute.

I can only say… Been there, done that, got that T-Shirt!

There’s plenty of information out on the process and the company itself…

Think about twice, before making that move… The deal is by far not, what it used to be and you must be kinda desperate..,..

Anyway - good luck

You will find there is no perfect job opportunity right now. It’s all about looking after number one and thinking about yourself. Wait for the waves to calm and then set your sail in the right direction.

Stage 1 (online): Record answers to questions with your camera in HireVue. You're given 15 seconds to think about the the answer before the recording starts and you need to submit the answers within 7 days.
Stage 2: Online interview with Microsoft Teams. You're given a chance to choose a day you're available.
Dubai: Sim, Compass, Medical

LatestPilotJobs is a good place to find exercises to prepare.

"It’s all about looking after number one and thinking about yourself."
Dubai summed up in one sentence. You'll fit right in.

Some of you have to realize that there are people here working as contractors, without basic salary and with a very unstable income that goes from crazy well paid in summer to barely enough in winter, without any real capacity to make predictions on how the rest of the year will be and no security provided by a proper contract with a basic salary. There are people paying for their own hotels during out of base duties and simulator. They're paying for their uniform, their medical and even have money deducted for their simulator. And these weren't the conditions they signed up for when they first joined. They're also being thrown around across the different bases as they wait endlessly to be based where they want to be based. And then some of you complain about hard work at EK, jetlag and who knows what else. When you have a REAL reason to claim that XXX company has poor conditions then you can make a case. Stop complaining about long flights. Stop complaining about turnarounds or about jetlag. You're working in a company that provides you with accommodation in a fun city, cleans your uniform, hands you cash on layovers, finances the education of your kids, gives you a leisure discount club card and many more benefits so that all you have to do is show up clean and sober at the entrance of your building to go to work.

Just. Stop. Complaining.
