Going back to the same hotel, the next day, was a whole different experience then the first time. Everyone was happy and excited that they got called back. And there was only about 20 people compared to the day before -when there was 120.
Today mainly focused on how you interact with other people. We did a couple exercises, one of them involving us asking the person to our right which celebrity they would be for a day and why. I chose Colbie Caillat, and I know there are a ton of better choices, but I could NOT think of anyone else in that moment. At least it wasn’t Angelina Jolie..3 people out of my group of 10 chose her!
The 2nd activity was a scenario; your plane crashed, you have people who are hurt – out of the 10 items listed, which five things would you grab and why.
They then went around our group asking various questions about why,what,where,and how.
I lucked out and got the easiest one: We chose our 3rd item to bring to be bottled water. Eaaaasyyy.
Next: they deliberated while we waited in the hall. I was almsot positive I didn’t make it. There were a lot more outgoing, loud, confident ladies in my group, and I was just hoping I wouldn’t be the ONLY one going home. How humilating.
Well, they called us back into our room, and they gave us the “Thank you for coming, please leave right away if you do not make it” speech. But the way they eliminated people was so classy! We had all been given a number, and they called us to leave the room in numerical order. On the way out they gave everyone a slip of paper saying if they had made it or not.
I maaade it!
I was so shocked!
Only 8 people made it to the final round.
The only other person to make it from my group was a boy. And he happened to be the one of two boys there that day, and very good looking.
The rest of the day was spent waiting for our flight attendant instructors, and filling out paperwork. They gave us a detailed list of things we needed to bring back the following day to our one-on-one interview.
I was so excited! I left, actually considering what it might be like working for Emirates! And living in Dubai… not my favorite part of the job. That, and along with the 3 year contract you have to sign.
But I was still extremely excited to have made it another round!
I took a picture as I drove home from Day 2, so I would remember dat der daaayyyyy!
