Airservices Assessment Day

Hello, I had my phone interview with Airservices on Monday the 24th. They said I will have an answer by the end of that week. It is now almost two weeks and no email. Has anybody heard from Airservices concerning an upcoming assessment day?

Axlegoose and Watermelon,

To give you an idea of timeframes. I did my online test late in the evening and got an email the next morning asking me to book a phone interview. At the end of the phone interview I was told that I made it through to the final assessment. So I knew from the phone call that I got through. The assessment ended being about 4-6 weeks later. Now I'm waiting to find out how my assessment went.

This is my experience, doesn't necessarily have a bearing on what you should expect.

Anyone who did an assessment end of May heard anything yet? I'd imagine they will be calling referees soon.

Airservices Assessment Day

Hey Watermelon,

You are correct, my phone interview was on the Monday (27th). I took the online testing on Friday the 24th and had an email prompting me to book a date for a phone interview 10 minutes after I finished the test. The interviewer told me that I will have an answer by the end of that week. I felt that the interview went really well. I am thinking of giving them a call early next week if I do not get an answer by then.

Pay Day and Pay Period

Hi All,
Recently got accepted to the Enroute Course starting later in the year.
Working out budgets and the like on the transition from my current job to this one and wondering if anyone knows the pay dates and the pay periods. I know they are fortnightly but unsure as to what day and periods.
i.e. Wed 19 June for period 13/6 to 26 June.
Thanks for your help if you know the answer

Assessment Day

Hello Watermelon,

I just got a response and have gone through to the assessment day. I have to pick a day for early August. Hope you got good news as well!

I was wondering if I can visit a Tower before my assessment day. I would love to see how the working environment is. If anybody has any tips on how to organize this, could you please share with me.

Thank you!

I recently applied and feel that I would be above level and ready for approach within 6 months. Would I immediately go to a level 5 pay scale straight away?

No. But I was a traffic controller. Can't be that much different.

Shags, not sure I understand. Do you have experience in the Aviation industry as an air traffic controller or not?

what is a traffic controller and how is it similar to ATC?

See what happens when you leave your phone unattended at work? Disregard the last two posts.

Assessment Centre

Congrats to Axlgoose and Watermelon.
I think I was in the same round as you guys for the online testing (had to finish by 26th May). You guys seem to have done your phone interview pretty much straight after the online testing on the 27th May but I only got notified for the phone interview late June (done on Wed June25th). Just like you guys, the interviewer had advised I'd likely hear back by end of that week. But now its over a week old and no replies as yet.
Did anyone do the online testing at end of May but only did the phone interview last week by any chance??
