Assessments 5,6,7 June.

Same here. No response yet. Some of the guys I know got the "yes" within a week or two. Some got a "no" within 48 hours. I think most are still waiting. But they did say we might have to wait until September for an answer.

Any insight from you guys - how's the three days in Reykjavik?
Can you confirm the FO's are just hired on a seasonal basis?
Cheers!

Thanks for the insight!
Trying to figure out if it would be a good/bad step to do this thing. I understand that icelandair offers a permanent contract after the first season. That's intriguing, but then again- first year is seasonal. Not everyone has savings to survive during the off season.

Do you guys have information about the personality test/interview?

so...as far as I undertand, there is a new assesment, even though some of us have not got answer from the assessment in June. Seems they have already chosen what they need from June then. Should we expect negative letter soon ?(for those who have not received any news from June)

I did the assesment in June and passed it.

Expect the following: Personality test and IQ test. You can pratice for the IQ test by doing diffrent tests online. Personality test, just be honest.

Sim. Testing your CRM skills. We did raw data SID, VOR and NDB holding. No emergency. ILS on raw data and no FD. Aircraft is a fixed base FNPT sim configured as a ATR. Not allowed to use autopilot or FD. They are using diffrent airports so you can not know for sure were you will fly.

Interview. With a pilot and one from HR. Very friendly people. Talk about yourself. Why Icelandair. Give example of good crm. What is important skills for a pilot ++

Very relaxed and nice assesment. Good luck guys!
