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...
So,it's an interesting point to know about the age.More especially when we are invited to the initial interview to be older than 30 and non TRed.Do you really think they have to waste time with such candidates or they didn't carefully read the applications before calling?
Quick question to you guys as I think hope is the very last thing to die
...when did you guys submitted the application?I did the general flight crew one on their website around 4 months ago!did you apply there as-well or did you go through different channels?? I'm 30 and also not rated...!cheers and good luck on your assessments ,Which I believe is the DLR test, but that's been said already
They are creating a holding pool because the current one is empty. They can not say when there will be pilots hired. If they hire it might be for a temporary contract ( they can not elaborate on that either). The conditions are like stated on ppjn. They do have a very long selection planned until november. It ends with 2 days of role plays etc. ( 2 psychs present). In the initial you face 2 capts and a psych. Good luck to all going there!
But i have a question for you. If you are not able to find it yourself are you the right person for this job? It took me 15 seconds to find it, i googled luxair, went to their website, looked at the botom found "Careers" and there i found a link to the flight crew. Now why is it that people are so lazy... Do you really think that you have "The right stuff"?
The temporary contract thing is, if I correctly understood slightly different.
They give you a regular contract, but because of the Luxumburg Law you and your employer have a 6 month probation. The intention of Luxair is to keep you within the company, seems quite logic since they are paying your T/R...don't you think?
I hope you are right but
- they said that they consider you as an employee from the moment you pass all the tests : only unpaid till they call you. So if they call you or a 6 month contract you will be only paid for 6. Remember that if you decide to walk away they call for the bond. If they fire you get to keep your money and type. For typerated guys this doesn t really matter. They reminded me that the application was for a temp contract, being out of a job that doesn t really matter i guess.
Hi Johnny, Thanks for the link. Actually I agree with you. It was quite lazy of me to put up that question and I realised that soon after writing it. I then found the link myself pretty easily and applied. I guess i just thought someone reading the thread might have the link open and send it on quickly. Lazy as u say, but Im sure we can all be lazy sometimes.
As for having the right stuff, yeah I definitely think I do. Since completing my training I got 2 interviews, passed them both, took one job and have been getting on well ever since. Fingers crossed I can continue to learn and improve every day as I have been. I love this job/career so so much and just couldn't be happier doing what Im doing. Anyway, cheers for the link and best of luck to everyone applying!
