good luck to everyone!

PS
do you roughly have an idea on how many days they need to send the outcome of the tests?

What format was the online assessment?

Kura sent an email saying I got a notification on the portal. Was 90% sure it would be bad news. Instead:

Thank you, once again, for your interest in the role of First Officer with NetJets and for taking the time to complete the online application form. I write to advise
you that your application is currently in review and, therefore, remains under consideration. You will be advised of the outcome very shortly. Thank you once
again for your interest. Kind regards, The KURA Team
🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼

Got through to the psychometric, not sure how many others did too. Thatís despite the fact that I had made a mistake on my CV and had emailed Kura asking for them to kindly update it, *after* having emailed them already to let them know that I now had a valid MEIR again. They seem quite forgiving. Good luck to everyone 🤞🏼

good luck for the second part of stage 2!
i didnít make it through the online tests.
i Guess it was because of the missile test, did you use a joystick or just the mouse ??

Hi,
Can someone explain what TBP (Tour base pay ) is?
Also what are the bonus factor for each aircraft, and does the Global for ex. makes as much bonus? The bonus is not increased in that fleet but as it can fly longer do pilots earn similar amout of bonus or is it less?
Thanks !

mate that sucks, sorry :/ you canít really know for sure what test it was that let you down. As for the hand-eye coordination test, being a PC gamer helps loads. Helps to use a mouse and not a trackpad.

that being said, I literally just did it a few hours ago, so although I feel like I did really well, I could be wildly mistaken. Time will tell 🥹🥹

Iím pretty sure TBP was already summarised further up this thread.

Donít worry yourself too much about the finer details of the productivity bonus rates between fleets as you pretty much have 0 influence over which fleet you will be on. The basics are that the Global crews get the lowest bonus rate as they have cabin crews, APU and typically long sectors and lowest total hours per year on average whereas the other end of the company fleet typically do Min rest, max duty, short turn 3-5 sectors per day and look after the aircraft by themselves with a GPU if lucky to keep themselves cool (there is no form of proper heating without engines running)

Thanks for the reply!
Well you are right i don't know exactly what exercise let me down but i am pretty sure it was the tube flight ehehehe i think I hit the wall 9-10 times right away I had the feeling that i wasn t going to pass it.
I am not a gamer and I used the trackpad, so definetely it was the tube flight! eehehehe
Good luck! all the best !

Isn't this just great! These days it helps to be a gamer if you want to make it past Kura and into NetJets. Ridiculous. Back in my days it was a phone interview, a sim session and a panel interview. NetJets hired a bunch of great guys and gals that way, just like most of the more recent hires have been great. The only real difference is there wasn't a third party company getting rich doing tests that have very little to do with the job.

It's tricky given the volume these days. Not sure about this time around but in the 2021 round of recruitment there were over 1000 applications in the first few days so its impractical do speak to everyone

Of course. And they never did. The first filters were CV and motivation letter.

​​​​​​When I joined only 5% of applicants were hired. And we did hire 200+ per year not long after that. So I suspect 1000+ applicants is nothing new.

I'm also not necessarily opposed to outsourcing part of the selection process. It just pains me to read that being a gamer helps and using a mouse as opposed to a track pad. Kura appear to be treating applicants like aspiring pilots not like professionals. An interview and a sim evaluation is all it should take. I know we are not the only ones doing it this way but that doesn't mean I have to agree with it. Before anyone says it: I'm aware a psychological assessment of some sort is now required by the EU.

Having an advantage as "a gamer" is nothing new: back in the 90s one would be doing better in going through the first stage tests for Lufthansa & Co. ("DLR Test").

Absolutely. Doesn't make it any better, though.

Question for those at NJ. Whatís the grooming policy?

I hate my clean shaven look. It emphasises my chubbiness, and frankly I have baby-face, so itís hard to be taken seriously.

I like having a clean ďlong stubbleĒ beard groom (name of the cut), but I donít want to risk my chance during the interview because of my grooming.

Iíve just clean shaved and had a haircut in prep for the online interview, and frankly looking at myself in the mirror doesnít make me feel amazing about myself. Iím well prepped so not too worried, but you know, the little things and all that

I think you'll make a better impression when you are clean shaved. What you do after you might get the job, is your thing. There is a policy and it basically says that you have to look well maintained and that any beard must not obstruct the use of the emergency oxygen mask (sealing the face).
