Seniority

Just out of curiosity, what do current NJ folk make of seniority?

It seems odd to me in an industry that has moved to competency-based performance.

As mentioned before, we are now moving back to pure seniority, the only objective way to build a career without too much cheating the system.

Tesh84, according to Kura's website "You will be advised no later than 28th August".

Application window closes on the 27th August, so they might wait for all the applications to be in and then start inviting people.
On the same note does anyone know what a "crew capacity" test is?

it seems odd when we, as an industry are embracing competency. I disagree with your assumption, but glad it works for you. All the best, JM.

Hi, I am also interested in this crew capacity test...is it similar to any of the PAT tests that can be found online? Anyone has any experience with Kura selection in the past?

Why would a performance-based career system be fairer than a seniority-based system? How do you make sure that "more liked" people would get an unfair advantage? We have had lots of discussions about these and many other points and the conclusion was always the same: you'll get your chance to upgrade by order of seniority, you'll get your preferred fleet by order of seniority. You can still mess up those tests and training courses and not make it - it is all about getting your turn on this. And then it is seniority that is the only transparent means. There's not much to discuss about this, it is very simple.

Well, in the first place Valerio1 should have known the correct name of the company. It is not "NETJET", but "NetJets" or "NETJETS". But, yeah, these are just details that the company does not take too serious. Or does it?

In what sense? Would you apply for British Airways and send them a letter, explaining that your dream has always been to work for "British Airway", without even checking on their website about correct spelling etc.? Guys, we are looking for quality, not quantity. If you can't be bothered to pay attention to detail, then you are at the wrong place.

Is it totally unreasonable to think that a non native english writing person just made a mistake ? Is jumping to conclusion a sign of quality ("without even checking on their website about correct spelling" - how would you know? ) these days at NJE ?

One of the airlines that I used to work for had training captains and simulator instructors who were seriously bothered by the difference between calling it "Flap XX" or "Flaps XX" . The majority of these clowns only spoke one language. Whatever it important to you and makes your boat float mate.

I can assure you that the majority here won't be bothered whether you say "speed 180" or "speed 180 knots"...

Non-native speakers: yeah, I am one of those, too. I speak 3 languages. But come on, it is common sense that you should at least know the correct name and spelling of your potential employer. I am used to fuel truck operators writing our company name as "Net Jet" or similar, but I expect a pilot to prepare more thoroughly. First impressions count a lot, but I am also convinced that he will make it through the selection process if he's a nice and competent person, who you could imagine hanging out for 6 days in a row, no matter whether he calls us Netjet or Netjets.
