Had a nice night stop in EDI last week recruiting.

Its completely different night stopping with recruitment than as you word with crew. Not just B and B but there is also exspences for evening meals ect paid for by recruitment

Plus you get to know the coordinators better.

Ooooh Adam, you're desperate for me to apply, I can see it. lol

I'm still a bit weary(sp?), I love night stops, but are there lots and lots? (I have a family). Plus do I still fly? (I love flying), is the pay usual plus an office day? (you can pm me with that info).

Cheers guys

Angel patience...

just to get it out of my system... i am starting to get really nervous now waiting for my phone to ring! it's killing me!

is there any sort of pattern as to when you get in touch with applicants?

I keep thinking about it in my head and planning stuff then remembering that I'm not actually in the job yet and might not be!

JOHNEZY... good luck with the new job, i hope it goes well for you

Please see you mail box

You still fly full time so to speak, but you are rostered recruitment days, sometimes a couple a month other times more, for instance i have 8 in total this month.
Plus recruitment dept have the power to get your roster changed from flying to recruitment days Grrrrrrrrrrr.

Pay is fine, Basic as well as office day pay. so you dont loose money.

Go On I Know You Want To

hi easy chic, adam's right its a good side line to have and varies, depending on when they need you but generally you do about 5-10 days a month. the trips away are normally just for 2 or 3 days and are very rare as they try to spread them out a bit. You get looked after well, and fell like you're really making a difference (especially when you recruit someone for you own base!). The office day pay is very good, if you think you'ld like it apply otherwise there will be loads of peole after the posistion, there were last time. Before this year the recruitment team haven't been after anyone for the team for years, and some people have said that they waited years to apply! so it's up to you, but dont waste time thinking about it as the posistion will be filled extremely quickly, and then you may miss out!

oooh nearly forgot, pyschicobabble:
i know wait ing is the hardest part! so i really do feel for you. there is no pattern for calling applicants, sometime they do it in days and sometimes it can take a bit. Basically the team will do it as soon as they get time and have sorted out, course dates, contracts, and wheather they need to book hotel rooms. so please just try and occupy yourself! it get harder if you are successful and have to wait for your course to start! my course with VS starts on monday and i'm getting very nervous about it so today i took my mind off it and cleaned my car, i spent all day on it! and thats really something for me as the next time i clean it will probably be this time next year lol!

Quick question for EZY recruitment staff

My better half has just attended one of your recruitment days. She was not invited back for the individual interviews held during the second part of the process. Fair enough, you may think, however on posing the question of why she was not to be interviewed, she was told her standard of English was not "Up to standard".

I find this ridiculus as although she is French, her level of spoken English is on a par with mine and her written, far exceedes my own. Coupled with this she has more 3 years experiance in the job with a corporate operation and two scheduled airlines, therefore I doubt that she has any issues with "team working" having proven this by experiance.

As an occupier of the RHS I have had the "pleasure" of flying with cabin crew who`s level of English was so bad on one occasion I had to draw a picture of a bottle of water to make her understand what I was requesting.

So to the question, all you EZY recruiters. Any pointers to why she would have been rejected?

hi there sorry to hear about your wife.
ok, a few piont to consider if she passed the exams then she can certainly read and write in english good enough for us, however in the group exercises we look at some candidates and it becomes tclear that they are having trouble understanding people when they are talking or their spoken english may be a little weak. More likely in the group exercise she was a bit weak in the competencies that we look for, these are conciensous, empathy,initiative and scense of ungency, we do tell them this at the start of the day. we dont just look at team work, and just because someone has flown with another airline for years doesn't mean that they will be perfect and pocess eveything that we are looking for. Please do remember that we are not saying that your wife is not good enough for us it's just that she didn't show what we were looking for on the day. I'm sure that she would make an excellent crew member for us but she needs to show us that, wich she can, if she so wishes in 6 months time. I hope this helps you understand what we are looking for and why she may have been turned down.
Kind regards
john

Johnezy,

Many thanks for considered reply. Had a long chat with her about it last night and it seems that she was put into a group that consisted of a mainly native english speakers and it appears that she somehow left out as she was unable to keep up with the london accent!

I`ll pass on those pointers to her and keep the fingers crossed for the next time.

Thanks again.

Jam...

I had my assessment day on Friday and got a call on Wednesday, another girl who went same day only heard this morning.

I know it is very very very difficult (just look at my posts above!) but the call will come and it will be unbelievable!!!

hello! to all easyjet people, wannabe's,soontobe's, and those waiting to hear!
I have just finished my last recruitment day tomorrow and apart from a homestandby will be finishing with the airline tomorrow. I am leaving to move to Virgin Atlantic, this will be very exciting and hopefully will be everything i wanted and more! My time at easyjet has been brilliant, I have made some great friends and helped to recruit some great crew. My decision to leave and go to virgin has been a hard one to make but if i didn't go for it, i would always have woundered what it would be like to work for them and to fly long haul. Maybe when i get bored with the routes and night stopping i will return to easyjet. they are a great company to work for, and really look after their crew.
So all that remains to say is Goodbye to all those who know me, and good luck to all those i have recruited or are thinking of applying.
Happy flying

I was doing your assessment day on the 14th. Obviously I don't know who you are from your username. Please be patient with us, it has only been a few days, I am sure you will hear soon. And good luck.

the goon

Sorry to hear you partner was unsuccessful on her assessment day. I hope she can take away the feedback as constructive feedback and not as negative. As Johnesy said Don't forget we welcome people to reapply in 6 months and do like to be proven wrong. If she liked what she saw with easyjet then we will look forward to seeing her in 6 months. Good Luck

johnezy

How was today?
Well it is now all over my good friend, Going to miss recruiting with you, I feel that we both were on the same page when recruiting. And of course going to miss flying with you
I wish you all the best with Virgin and hope all goes well. I look forward to seeing you around and of course chin wagging on here.

ezychic and adam,

That recruitment job you are talking about...how come it's not on inside?
Or am I just to blind to see?
I thought they had to post all internal job offers there to make it fair...I might be wrong...
