Me too, but My license is not endorsed with the TR yet as I only did my base check today and the other thing is my interview is the same day as I get back from holiday...

What would you do? or anyone else for that matter??

I would call HR department and check if I could go another day. Normaly they are taking in candidates on several days.
But if it not possible I would quit my vacation and go for the interview.

...........But again that is just me

Good luck!

Interview

Thanks guys..I guess I better start reading about the classic since my TR was on the NG only and im assuming the test on the boeing will obviously be on the classic...

Has anyone been for an interview with them recently?

interviews-experience

I'm a little curious about your experince who have been invited to Air Baltic interview. At the moment I'm a little disapointed because I haven't been invited to an interview. For the first of it I don't have a type-rating and I don't have a JAR license. Could that be the reason, that I don't have the JAR license? To get this license is pretty easy in fact, only for me to travel to my homecountry and do this exam. I've almost finished a BS in engineering so I guess that would count as a benefit for the company. How many of you guys have finished a University degree???
Hope to hear from you

Its all about having a rating if you wanna join Airbaltic. I applied 2 yrs ago ago never heard from them then I got a 737 rating I updated my application on a Friday the following Monday I was invited for a interview.

Atleast you guys have not been told your not qualified.
I hope You will get a positive answer eventually.
I think AirBaltic will need a fair amount of 737 drivers as:
1: From what i have heard, the Fleet is expanding
2: Pilots are leaving for other jobs

Did you go there with a 737 TR ? And was the interview tough? Im suprised they are turning people away with TR's...

I would assume theres two types of interviews, one for people with a TR and one for people which dont have one and are hoping AB will bond/pay for it. Anyway I have mine coming up in October although they kindly post poned my date due to my circumstances.

I was at the interview 5 weeks ago and I have not heard anything. I have tried to call them but the answer I get is that they are still doing interviews.

Mike where did you get a better job offer?

"Im suprised they are turning people away with TR's..."

Well beeing typerated isn't exactly a special qualification except it's logically saving some training costs for a company. I still think (underlined) that there are a few pilots out there with typeratings to pick from? I indeed see people attending interviews everytime I am at the office!
