Interviews at Easyjet

Hi all

I have got an interview in the next couple of weeks for a job at Easyjet's HQ in LTN.
Can anyone give me any hints/tips/guidance of what to expect so that I can prepare myself. They have said that it will be some tests followed by a competency based questions. Should be there no longer than 2hrs.

Any help would be most appreciated.


Cheers

If your job is to work in the HQ and you pass all the competency questions then you probably won't be offered the job!! Because you'll be the only one!!

The position is for a admin level job. Don't want to go into too much detail though.

Hi, thanks.

Another possible buyer for them could be Thomas Cook for their older 757's, I'm sure Monarch will be having one though, seen as they were short last year apparently.

Thereís a few rumours on the Manchester Thread for possible routes and the arrival of the fourth aircraft but we'll just have to wait for an official announcement which i am looking forward to!

I wonder if Jet2 hadnít have announced their new routes from Manchester to Sharm etc easyJet would have announced these as their new routes?
So does anyone know what is going to replace the A321's?

Ryanair ‘will soon be Britain’s number 1 airline’ : Stansted Airport News Stories

I thought U2 was Britain's biggest airline both in terms of overall passenger numbers but also to and from the UK?

Obviously not!

The story from the Times seems to be based on a claim made by MOL. It is not unknown for MOL to make claims that have subsequently needed further 'clarification' !

Depends on how you define Britain's as in UK registered, UK Owned, Operating in UK with lots of flights, UK AOC etc

FR does have a UK AOC, after the buzz acquisition. I dont think there are any aircraft currently flying under that AOC, so not sure how the status of that AOC is. Can an AOC be "dormant"?

I know they are the largest in passengers carried by a UK registered airline (factor I am questioning as per link) but also in the number of passengers carried in and out and around the UK.

By that I could mean any airline. e.g.) KLM will carry more passengers than Manx2, Lufthansa more than Eastern etc.

I am not bothered from which country the airlines come from.

I see Easyjet has pushed up its hold baggage and card charges yet again to £9 per bag and £8/£3.50 per transaction. These may be modest sums compared to rapacious Ryanair, but it is still a devious way of making profits.

That AOC was relinquished and no longer exists. Ryanair has only one AOC - the Irish one - on which all of its operations are conducted.

thats what happens when more and more people start taking hand luggage... all Ground Handlers have been told to be very strict on bags at the gate... so if your in doubt about your case size, have £18 on standby

could be worse i guess, bmibaby charge £32 (i think?) for any bags removed from PAX at the gate

Sometimes.

Also, the other airports mentioned seem likely to get new aircraft next summer.

However, I wouldn't get carried away but my guess it yes, more routes and planes for MAN.

Its looking as if EZY will have a net gain of just 6 aircraft when comparing now and this time next year.

Are they getting rid of all their 737s?

I would guess 1 already gone to LPL, two to MAN and the rest in Europe.

thats their plan as they want an all airbus fleet, more capacity (only an extra 7 seats on the A319 but i guess it all adds up), better fuel efficiency... only downside to the airbus is when it goes tech it generally means a longer delay compared to the 737's
