Etihad Assessment Day Question

27/07/2016, Abu Dhabi

When was the last time for you to take all responsible for other's mistake?
I could say that I recently have to take all responsible for my buddy since she's very new. If something goes wrong, I'm the only one who have to approach my senior,supervisor and my manager to explain what went wrong. Even it's mine or her mistakes.

This stage was so quick 100 candidates within only 45-50 minutes. I finished in 1 minutes only.
I'm so positive and I know how to make an interesting answer. The first 7th seconds need to be straight forward to the question. It shouldn't be longer than 1 minute as well.

11:30-11:45 - Assessor's presentation/waiting for evaluation (CV drop score + English test score + Prompt speech score)

Note: They have taken the feedback from you in every single stage.

11:50 - 1st Evaluation
Those who got through will be called name and number. Then we followed the assessor to the other room. 27 candidates out off 100

12:00 - 12:20 Group discussion (7 candidates/group/assessor)
Don't focus on the answer too much because if you do, you'll be so serious and you won't be able to listen to other candidates, don't forget to smile.

You don't have to give them the right answer though it should be possible and reasonable. Smile and speak at the right time. It was so easy and the assessor didn't ask the group final decision individually.

12:30-12:45 -2nd evaluation + Etihad crew life's presentation (those who got through will be called again by name and number)

Required documents will be summited while you are waiting for the final interview.


Cabin Crew Final interview (2 on 1 stage , 1 assessor asked , the other one took note)

Note: All the questions are based on your cv
Be well prepared, I couldn't do well because I panicked a little. I didn't expect that it's gonna be on the same day.

Golden email or regret email. I got a regret email and even though it was so quick and waiting doesn't kill me at all. Now I know what was my mistake and I'm gonna try again after 6 months. Fingers crossed and I wish you luck on your assessment day.


    That's it,

    Many thanks to Tikki for sharing her experience, If you want to share your assessment day experience, visit our facebook group and submit your experience and thoughts with future candidates.


    1. It was so quick! Be well prepared,final interview in Abu Dhabi always happens in the same day.

    2. I have a question and I've been trying for a time to get an answer; maybe someone here can help me with that. I worked for Etihad last year , only 6 months but unfortunately I had to resign due to some problems back home,but now I'm good and I really want to fly was amazing.. do you think i still have the chance to rejoin Etihad (of course after attending an interview and so on )?
