Pretty chilled roster on the Ejet. You can expect at least 8 days OFF in a month with a good mix of medium/short flights day/night ops. 73/78 rosters are even better

I started my application for the Direct entry (Second Officer) on the KQ web-page, but seems I was denied access later on during the application. Has anyone experienced the same issue, or had any success with the career portal. I understand that this is an issue that probably concerns KQ, but I have been waiting for a reply from the IT staff for several days. Please share your experiences. Cheers!

I'm currently going through Kenya Airways direct entry pilot recruitment process. I have created this forum STRICTLY for the direct entry program "wannabe's" for us to share our experiences or ask any burning questions we may have regarding the program. There is another forum SPECIFICALLY for Kenya Airways AB Initio program. So please direct your response or question to the right forum.

So let's get the ball rolling......I recently applied the program via their website portal and about a week ago I received an email containing below message some other usual information about the program.

"Please be advised that we will be processing the next direct entry pilot shortlist in January 2014. We will however maintain your application in our recruitment database for processing in January 2014. We thank you for the interest shown in working for Kenya Airways, the Pride of Africa. Thank you”.

The above message and email was sent from “[email protected]” and not “[email protected]

Is this normal for Kenya airways to send work correspondence without using their platform? Did anyone else receive the “yahoo” email?

I hope the pilots who have gone through direct entry program will be able to share with us their insights, the do’s & don’t .

No, I could not recieve Email from "Yahoo" Mail.

Captains have been complaining about cadets since the first letter was delivered by an airplane. I can believe that through some kiti kidogu(spelling?), that some “cadets” may have gotten their cadetship through connections or other “avenues”. Nothing, and I mean nothing beats my cadet story though. A colonel from the Air Force of a neighboring country was sent to us at the national airline. He demanded to be called a Colonel even when in civilian attire. The sim facility refused to issue him an SIC type rating or recommend him for a checjride. He came back with a “letter of completion” to save face. The bestest part was that the Air Force of the afrikan nation in question didn’t have, nor have they ever operated an aircraft.

Don't bother applying
 
The recent ramp accident grounded two Embraers for the rest of the year. They will likely cut back on number of recruits to avoid oversupply.

Technical interview
 
Hey! Anyone done the Kq interview recently? I heard they have added a further step in the process being a 50 question technical interview as of October last year . Can anyone confirm this ?

Hi Guys,
I am preparing for the Talent Q assessment. I came across this website jobtestprep.co.uk that claims to have lots of practise questions to prepare one for the assessment. Does anyone have any experience with the site? I am open for any advice.

To be honest, nothing can prepare you for Talent Q. I did all sorts of preparation but the main test was absolutely something else. You can sign up on their website and do some practice. It will give you an idea of what to expect.

Any one who has recently attended Direct Entry FO/SO interviews and what the process constitutes? About the 50 question Tech quiz is true? Any feed on the psychometrics and what sort of questions?
