Interviews, jobs & sponsorshipDo ya feel lucky, Punk? Well do ya? If so, here's the place to swap the hot gen on who's sponsoring or employing, their selection criteria, and where those oh so elusive first jobs can be spotted in the wild. Watch out for the tumbleweeds...
Can you confirm the method you recieved the reply? Email, phone, post?Post is always a day or two late here, but if its a phone call / email I might just be further down the list. Might need to check my spam folder if it's by email.
Apparently about 200 people applied, and 30 made stage 3 for the written and computer based exams which were followed by an interview from the rep. of TFE.
Stage 3 people were selected based on the stage 2 responses, this included marking each question out of 5 I believe and points for meeting the deadline of 3 days. I'm not sure if you responded after the 3 days if you were ruled out or not.
Not too much to report on for the day, there was 4 written and 4 computer based tests with the final interview at the end, the process took about 5-6 hours.
There seems to be a lot of RAF guys or people who had placements with the RAF later on in the year who had lost their jobs. There also seemed to be several students who had just finished studying for an Aviation degree.
Currently there is no news on stage 4 but hope to hear back soon.
I have heard from a friend - they applied for this and have got through to Phase 4 - the interview. They heard yesterday. I am in touch with one on the current course and he has enjoyed the course - very intense but worth it. Not too long until he finishes now (applying for the sponsorship this time last year). He completes his TR in Exeter around Aug/Sept time and then starts work for Flybe soon after.
Sounds good and all the best to your friend for the remainder of his course; I'm sure he must be enjoying it.
Just out of interest, was it explained to him what would happen if he failed at any stage? Or if FLYBE suddenly decided they didn't want him for whatever reason? i.e. do FTE have any kind of guarantee scheme like OAA, or would your friend's (bank's) money just disappear into the Andalucian sunset?
