I promised myself that I would share my experience with Etihad Airways. Because even if it is just a little bit, I’d like to help. I have written about everything I can remember, right here. Just look for the categories on the right hand side, or down below if you’re on your mobile..
I am a Chef. I studied at The Prue Leith Chefs Academy in Centurion, South Africa. I am obsessed with travelling. I love to eat. I take way too many pictures. And finally, I am an In-Flight Chef for Etihad Airways and part of the Cabin Crew team.
The processes for Cabin Crew, Food and Beverage Managers and In-Flight Chefs are all the same, with tiny variations here and there.
Here we go then, from paperwork to preparing for your Open Days (OD), Assessment Day (AD), what to wear, what NOT to wear, the horrid waiting game, the emails, the paperwork, the Date of Joining (DOJ), the contract, the tickets, the goodbyes and did I mention the paperwork? I’ll also keep posting as much as I can now that I am finally here.
Please ask me anything you want to know, I will get back to you as soon as I can. Or follow me on Instagram to find out where I am and feel free to chat to me there too!
This was one of the most stressful things I have ever done. Believe me when I say that if you don’t succeed the first time, DO NOT GIVE UP! It took me 3 OD’s and 2 AD’s to get in, and now I can say that I have never been happier!
