Does anyone have any information on when the next course starts/started? As one of the lucky ones there's only so many times I can check my email in a day.

What do you mean by "one of the lucky ones"?

Hi all,
Does anyone have any information about the Video Interview, or has anyone been through one recently? I've no intention of planning any answers, but would like to know what type of questions would be asked if possible to be in the right frame of mind before conducting it. I can't imagine they'd be asking anything technical at this stage and it's probably just a "how would you react to X?" or "tell us about a time when you Y", but would like to confirm.

To try to add more information to this thread: I recently received a video interview request for a Level 2 application without having a huge amount of previous experience under my belt. I've also noticed that the careers website is showing that the Level 2 Trainee job post is no longer accepting applications.

With regard to the Trainee First Officer Level 2 positions, requests for video interviews have been sent out. Must be completed within three days of notification. Can be done via a mobile device.

Curious about the video interview. What can an applicant expect from it? Is it a Skype video interview or one of those that you record yourself answering question? Not holding my breath though, haven't received anything since my initial application. Just heard some around the traps at other companies getting said email.

Not blowing my own horn but I had 3X the DEFO requirements minus all the ATP subjects,
So you are going for an Airline job without sitting the ATPL exams?

No ATPL subjects? That'll put you in the minority of applicants so don't expect to hear anything.

I'd start studying...

HI Everyone I have also received a request for a video interview called the number in the states and spoke to a guy there, he said you get to do the practice questions which don't count and you can log out once you have created the account with this company if you want to or need time to think about the process, but once you log back in and start doing the actually interview question you can not log out until your done. He also said there may be a few multiple choice questions would but would not elaborate its content of these.

The Best Advice I think would say is look back at your flying career so far and think how best you would answer typical face to face interview style questions.

Interview was more behavioral and some information about hours, it was pre-recorded questions so just read and think/answer.

In regards to applying level 2 trainee fo, wasn't the requirement all ATPL exams completed for level 2?

Yeah I noticed that as well 'Give it the Herbs' - hopefully they made a mistake with it.

Assume they did as the requirements were 250hrs with 70 PIC of an aircraft, for everyone's sake lets hope it didn't mean too much.

Don't want to get too far ahead of myself, however during the training period at fta, students are unpaid. Does payment start at the commencement of line training? Is there any assistance provided by the company for relocation as they have the final say where they put you and getting approved for rentals can take up to weeks? Just curious as I know myself and others who made the cut for the video interview have been in GA for years and are essentially flat broke

The Link pays from the first day of employment, which is the day you walk in the front door and start the company paperwork (this is just prior to the type rating), however it may take a week for the paperwork to go through, so it is possible to miss a pay cycle at the start (you will get the back pay). So plan on up to 4 weeks before pay day.
You will only receive assistance if they move you from the assigned base. So if you are flat broke, then maybe a brief loan to tide you over to your fist pay? They pay fortnightly, on time. If you are desperate you could try talking to the Senior base pilot, but I doubt they can help, getting paid outside of the pay cycle is as close to improbable as moving from the Link to mainline.

Was really awkward being able to see yourself in the video kept looking at it and stumbling luckily the questions they asked I had prepared for except name 3 strengths and and developments only had 1 of each prepared but got a few out but stumbled on the last one but I'm confident I did all I could now it's up to them....
Only 4 questions 1st ones a gimme... State your hours so far and confirm they meet the 70 hours pic multi or turbine.

Will the unsuccessful applications eventually be notified as such or will they remain in a perpetual state of limbo as HR draws in an increasing pool of candidates?
