No, not yet, but hoping for a date soon. Wish you good luck. I just did the phone interview. How long did it take from the phone interview to the sim assessment?

Why did they pull out of Europe the first time round 2 years from launch, getting onto 20 years ago? Seems like a bit of indicision there. Strong or weak economy.

Be careful not to be at the top of that sh*t pile, then back to the bottom of someone else's within a very short space of time. Doesn't matter how experienced you are.

It's not the same company. Bombardier sold that iteration following their withdrawal from Europe.

I was referring to rumours and this quote :

Flexjet Europe has also recently hired someone who “brings deep experience selling private jet travel solutions throughout Europe” to help facilitate these plans. Ricci said more details about this new employee and its new European access program will be announced in early January.

Really? A successful business man he may be but I despise his union busting at Flexjet US. Unfortunately the pilots fell for it and will have only themselves to blame for sub-standard conditions, when compared to NetJets.

Have you seen the T&Cs at Flexjet US compared to NetJets?

Also reasonably offensive to the 600+ Flexjet pilots who voted for it.

Sorry, back on the economy of things in Germany and Europe as a whole. This from the “German Economy Ministry”:

"A bigger downturn or even a pronounced recession is not expected at the moment. However, indicators don't point to an economic turnaround for the better either," it added.”

....and then:

“Finance Minister Olaf Scholz told lawmakers on Tuesday that Germany was ready to pump "many, many billions of euros" into its economy to counter any significant slowdown in growth, and said the country must take bold measures to fight climate change before it is too late.”

This is one tool that healthy economies can use when things are slowing down. Other countries in weaker economies often don’t really have much left to support its market with though but I wouldn’t worry too much about Germany to be honest.

NetJets US have a great package (particularly compared to NetJets Europe)

Of course I have seen the conditions. NJA wins hands down.

And it wasn't 600+ who voted the union out at Flex. It was 318 to be exact. Many of which for short term gain, no doubt. Not clever.

Then you are not follwing up what happens these days in Germany. "We" - aka NGOs & the Government - alike are in the process of destroying the industrial heart of Germany, the automotive industry. AND they are after aviation as well. They started with the Diesel car emissions harmful effect on humans in cities. The rest of the story is already history. NOW 'they' - the press - are on about the harmful effects of A/C emissions. Sit back and wait. I guess in about 10 years time the German economy is a shade of itself. The Brits and their Brexit might be not to soo stupid after all.

The minister quoted, btw is Olaf Scholz, a man I wouldn´t trust further than I can throw a washing machine. Thats the dude who was mayor in Hamburg before and during the G20 riots, who parctically guarantted that there would be no rioting at all. History told him a lesson, one would think, but no, this dude...

Regarding the interview process, is it a phone screening, then interview then sim? Anybody have any idea what the phone interview entails?

Thanks

The process was phone interview, then assesment day with a personal interview for around one hour and a sim check. Afterwards another short phone conversation with 2 management guys if sucessfull.

Job offered but without knowing terms and conditions ( I know, quite funny). They said they would contact shortly with final offer.

Thanks for your feedback Mister, can I ask you what is your experience/background? Without being too specific for obvious reasons, just to have a rough idea of who they are currently calling.
Thanks.
