EK interview shortlist for FO'S

Hi All

I would like somebody in the know to please tell me when interviews
for first officers will resume? I have been shortlisted and got the standard
reply, but as I understand it, they are still only busy interviewing
for the DEC positions.
I have read the other thread about the holding pool for those who
have already been through the interview process, and the A380 seems
to have been a spanner in the works, but nothing has been mentioned
about when FO interviews will recommence.

Thanks guys.

Word on the street is that invitations will go out around the new year for FO selections... Give or take. Keeping in mind, airlines change their plans by the minute.

Rumoured to be around the end of this year. It may be that with the retention of some of the A343's that the required numbers will rise, which may start the ball rolling earlier than planned.

Just my tuppence worth...

Shortlisted Pond

Hi guys,
As you can see, there are two swimming area: the "Shortlisted pond" and the "Hold pool".
I've read the pool has been started to drain.
My application form is still there with the "Shortlisted" status awaiting for the call for the interview invitation. Basically, I'm swimming in the pond with no news from December 2011. Has anybody got some fresh news from the EK to share about new, ongoing or about to start again?


Cheers,
M80
(F/o 5600h jet time)

Hello guys ,

I am shortlisted from feb 2012 , since then no news , I've heard that they are going to start again soon.I think this is correct if you consider that they have put an advertisement again at flight international web at 2 of Oct.

Hello guys,

A little more patience, our time for the interview will come (sooner or later) as they are currently draining their holding pool + advertising back + A380 entering the fleet again. From several inside source (ex-colleagues working for EK now) the recruiting machine will start up again if not already.

Shortlisted since March 12.
3500h+ Jet
Airbus A32F

Finger crossed a let's be "all" happy we can still fly while waiting for the best.

I take it nobody has any information on the interviews for those that have been short listed (not that you are guaranteed getting one!)? Hopefully the ball will start rolling soon for FOs
