hi please call the recruitment team at Luton om 01582 525850. They are at Luton not gatwick and sometimes applications get put on hold if you apply for a base that we are not recruiting at what base did you go for and did you put a correct e mail address?

Dolly: the uniform was voted for by crew did you vote? were you at easyjet when this happened? alot of people voted by looking at the pictures on inside, instead of making the effort to go and see the uniform up close with the designers and ask questions. Personally i wanted the other uniform with the orange shirts and no tie, with that one you girlies (with your massive tatoo's on your legs!) would have got a chioce of trousers and skirts, but everyone was too keen to get voting and now loads of people are regretting being so hastey!

Who needs to know what about Orly?

yeah make sure you do we are still recruiting for gatwick so you shouldn't have had to wait this long. I'm really sorry to hear that they haven't replied to you.

John:

Yes, I voted and I voted for the third option, the mix and match of both designs.

To be quite honest I thought the whole thing was a bit of a joke. But nevermind.

I just don't see how easyjet can get rid of the trousers with girls who are actually not allowed to wear skirts by the company at the moment. What is easyjet going to do about cases like this? Seriously, any idea?

I know they are talking about leaving the ties for the guys optional at the moment so there is obviously still some room for changes.

However, about being not well informed...unfortunately I didn't have a chance to see the designs when they were introduced at our base, the photos (the ones that were supposed to help us vote) weren't very obvious only showing upper body pictures which I thought was a bit silly but there you go. But the actual design drawing for the wining uniform design shows trousers for the ladies. Go figure!

The winning uniform design has a choice of trousers or skirts for the girls, i went to the roadshow and that was one of the many questions asked!
Also in the pics the girl is actually wearing trousers.

Post Parisienne To Johnezy

Dear JOHNEZY,
#here-s Parisienne, I d like to know the following about Orly>

- Average roster ( i suppose that having only 11 destinations we might have at least one standby a week, which maybe is not good for the money)
- Cost of accomodation, how easy/difficult it is to find a nice room with wi-fi connection ( cost of bills, transport)
- which is the area nearest to Orly/ the area where cabin crew usually stay
-what s the atmosphere like
= how many cabin crew are based there
-do you get overnights
- Is there a bus for easyjet staff?
- do you work at CDG as well as at Orly

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I Got The Job

Hi everyone,

everything is in the title. What should I add more ?
I am very very very happy. The bottle of champagne has been opened and I celebrated this event with my friends. I also had a little thought for you. I would like to thank all of you for the information I could get from here.

hi c-ouame well done to you i hope you enjoy your course

OK Orly- well i am not based there so i have limited info for you perhaps there is a crew member on here from Orly that could help? But this is what i do know transport to the airport is up to you, i'm sure there are discount available for crew. you would only work out of Orly not CDG, that isn't one of our bases, and for the route please see our website, Orly is always getting more routes so i'm sure there will be more expansion of the base but at the moment it isn't a big base. This is sometimes better as you make closer friends with the crew that you fly with. As far as i know Orly don't have night stops but i'm not sure all i know that the norm for the airline is that we don't do night stops. You wouldn't really get a week of standbys, there maybe just 11 destinations but as i said it's a small base so you would be flying those destinations regulary. Hope this helps
john

Talking congratulations ouame, thanx john

HI Ouame,
I wondered whether you applied for the ORLY BASE... If so, maybe you got some information regarding the base.. @I guess you are french native speaker... do you know if the others got tested on the language on the same day of the assessment?
cheers,
all the best for your ezy career..

thanx john for your help

Tomorrow...

... is the big day! I have to drive down to Braintree tonight, so have plenty of time to start worrying again. My friend has just found out she has got on a cruise ship for the summer, so hopefully I will get equally good news!

I'm still concerned about the 'look at our website' for the interview comments though, as I haven't had much time this week to take a proper look and I have no internet access from today!

Also, I'm allowing an hour and a half to get from Braintree, but forgot about the roadworks on perceival way. Am I going to need to make it 2 hours travel time?!

Good luck to everyone else!x

Yeah may be worth giving 2 hours, there are also road works on M1 if your coming that way. And if you are early at the academy there is a canteen with vending machines you can use.

Good Luck

Not a wannabe anymore

Hello there! I am new to this forum and am not a wannabe any more! I got a post with easyJet (the best company in the whole world). I am starting my training course on 19 March.

Anyone around doing the course with me at Luton? I am going to be based at LGW.

Phew... it's over!

Hi Guys,

Well I made it through the whole day so now i just have to wait and see. It took me a while to think of some stuff in the interview but hopefully it was still ok. I left at 6.10 and got there at 8.05 after a couple of wrong turns

There was someone called John there briefly, was that you??

I'm not going to worry too much until I know if I am being offered a job but it will involve moving as Im in north Suffolk and I would need to be at least in Ipswich, so I have some decisions to make :-)

I'll let you know as soon as I do what's going on!

Thanks again for your help and advice!

Recruitment team

Hi,

is there anychance one of you guys on the recruitment team can let me know what it involves (being on the recruitment team that is)? We got an email saying they were recruiting and to apply stating why we would suit the job.

I emailed back asking for more infomation on what it would involve (the email said very little). The response was to apply, then if I got the job and it wasn't what I wanted I could turn it down. Seems a bit silly to me. Does anyone know what it involves? I'm not comfortable applying for a job if I don't know what it is, more to the point, how can I say how I would be suited to it?

Help

EzyChic

That didn't make much sense when I read it back, let me know if you don't get it.

Hello Parisienne

I was a busy those last days so I couldn't reply sooner.

No, I haven't been tested in French. It might be because it is my mother tongue. As far as I've understood, there is a language test if you declare you speak fluently a language other than your mother tongue and English. There is an English test during the assessment day for it is a requirement.

easyJet recruiters also told us they wouldn't base us in a place we don't speak the language - As they aknowledge you speak that language if you are succefull to the test language.

For your Orly questions, I am not sure I can help you.

Have a nice day.

Is it true that candidates write the language test (different than english) after the training? Even if it's a language of their base?

hi everyone sorry not been on in a while, been busy as im heading off to pastures new!
right well lets see, where to start?
i am the only john on the recruitment team so i suppose that was me!!
if you speak a language as your mother tongue then you won't be tested on it.
hi Adam see ya on wed!

and finally the recruitment team do just about everything on the day. as a cabin crew assessor you will be required to check the candidates in, meet and greet! then you will be doing some questions and answers, after they watch a video on a day in the life of ... then there is a maths and english test to take them through and then you maybe either saying well done or having to turn people away if they have failed. after this we organise the group exercises and then again you maybe either saying well done or having to turn people away-this bit is quite hard to do and alot of people who applied for the role last time turned the job down because of this, so be prepared you will at times have to squash people dreams, (anyone reading this who has had to be turned down please note that this is as much difficult for us as it is you!). then we do a presentation on pay and contracts after this you do the interviews. So as a cabin crew assessor you will involved in every part of the day and really do have a say in who you want to work with in the future! it is fun and very rewarding but it is
also very difficult, busy and at times stressfull. but if you can give a presentation if front of up to 30 people, want the travel/night stops and are a good judge of charecter then apply!!!!
