BMI - Wannabes & Recruitment

Hi there,

I've searched on here and can't see any recent Bmi references. Can anyone say what the Bmi assessment day is like? I have my assessment at the end of next week, and I have to bring a calculator with me so am presuming there's some kind of numeracy test.

Also, as I did my O'Levels/A'Levels 20-25 years ago and have moved home countless times since then, I no longer have copies of those exam certs. I have a BA (completed a couple of years ago) and so have a Cert as proof for that - but will that suffice? Or will Bmi insist on me trying to produce old school certs? Any light shed on the matter would be brilliant, thanks.

Hi SleepPixie,

I had my assessment at the start of May, and am now about to finish my course and go on line in about 10 days. The assessment day starts off with you sitting in a crew seat and putting on a life jacket (I guess to exclude the more 'horizontally challenged' applicants), and then you'll be parked in the canteen. It's a good idea to spend this time getting to know the other applicants, as it'll show when you do the group exercises later on. You'll then go into a company presentation, and a video about the life of cabin crew, a maths test (adding up various items using an in flight sales menu, working out change in various currencies etc)and a comprehension test (reading some text and answering questions. You'll then go into groups and do a couple of activities (they vary, but we built a house out of lego (testing how you work as a team) and role played complaining customers / managers).

Then a break while they decide who stays and who goes, and then lunch. You'll come back in the afternoon for a 2 on 1 interview which lasts 45 min to an hour.

You should be fine with the degree certificate, I got the impression that it would remove the need for A/O level certificates. It mght be worth giving the recruitment guys a call or an email to confirm, they're all really friendly in the office.

Best of luck!!

Many thanks for that Starbag - well done on your selection!

I'll have to do some currency conversion homework in the meantime, to be on the safe side.

Thanks again,

BMI Cabin Crew take home pay

Does anyone know what the average monthly take home pay is for a new BMI cabin crew member? I have looked at the website and it mentions about flight pay and commission in addition to the annual salary and London waiting allowance. Be grateful to hear from existing or ex employees. Thanks.

take home pay

bmi flight pay is split between taxable and non taxable. The non taxable part is paid on the 15th of the month and is 65% of your total flight pay. I used to on average get around 500 but i was on longhaul. I would then get around 200 in my salary. Sometimes i would get a lot more than this if i had a good roster. As a new starter you won't be far off this figure because there are now lots of trips because of the bmed takeover last year
Hopes this helps and makes sense
