If you’re hoping to become Etihad Cabin Crew, you can make an application on their careers website. The assessment day is an important part of the application process, take a look at my post ‘10 Things
Before you start the day you will check-in. Your Assessment Day will then start with a short introduction and welcome from the recruiters.
CV and registration form submission / The Reach Test
Once you have checked in you will be asked to line up to hand in your documents. You are required to hand in your CV with a passport photo and the forms you are given to fill in. At the same time, you may also be asked a few short questions by the recruiter, such as ‘Why do you want to work for Etihad?’ You may also be asked to shower your hands to the recruiter and you will be asked to perform the reach test. You will need to make sure that your CV meets the demands of the airline. To help we have created a Cabin Crew CV template and
House Rules Presentation
If you pass the reach test you will be given a short presentation from the recruiters about how the day will go. You will also be told any
English Test and Speech
You will then be asked to complete an English test. This usually takes around 15 minutes and consists of some simple multiple choice questions. After the test, you will then be asked to give a small speech to your peers. For this, you are given a random question that you need to answer on the spot and say to the other candidates. Your answer should last around 1 minute.
Presentation about Abu Dhabi
You will then be given a presentation by the recruiters about life in Abu Dhabi and Etihad in general. While this takes place you will also receive your scores for the English test and Prompt speech. This is followed by the first round of eliminations. The assessors will call a list of numbers into a separate room and tell them they are successful.
You will then be asked to take part in some group activities. You will be split into groups of 5-7 people and you will be given a task or topic to discussion. There will be an assessor sat at the table with you watching how you communicate and work as a team. It’s important that you listen to the other candidates and allow others to speak. The group tasks are followed by another round of eliminations. Those who are selected get through to the final interview. You will also be asked to fill in some documents at this point.
The Final Interview
The final interview will last for around 20 minutes and will be with two different interviewers. You will need to hand them your documents and then you will be asked a number of questions. You will likely be asked general questions about why you want to be a flight attendant for that company and about your experience.
