The last of information is not overwhelming at all, because they have said numerous times that the new uniform is aimed to be out by around July time.

User trials have to be conducted first, just to iron out any problems, then once the user trials have been conducted to a satisfactory level, then the uniform will start to be produced en mass.

Read the 'Crew Matters' photocopy that gets sent to your home address, it has been in there several times since December!!

you get a questionaire to be filled out by your GP so you won't have to go to Luton :-)

Exclamation Basic Pay!

Hello,

I received my contract today and although I know it was discussed on my assesment day, I'm fairly shocked at the actual basic pay.

My question is this... does every month guarantee a higher salary? I understand that you receive sector pay, commission etc but going by the basic pay, there is no way I will be able to afford to move and change jobs. Without wishing to share too much personal information, I took a salary drop of over 100 a month at the end of last year, and am struggling already even while living with family so will be getting in to real financial difficulty if I dont have many flights/commission each month!

Help!

salary

during training etc your basic is all you get. so for the first few months you'll probably struggle. however after probation etc I think its fair to say your salary about doubles, depending on base (ie how many sectors you do) and commission. (i am ltn based).

I think its quite a nice little earner for the work you do.

plus they are on about additional disruption pay too now. so, if anyone has a week like I had last week they'll be quids in!

(excuse the punctuation, replying from a hotel balcony in spain off my mobile, long hard week deserved a staff travel treat)

Like ezychic said, the first couple of months are a pain but then it starts getting better quickly and really good after your six month probation.

The earnings are fine, depending on base and roster and season. You will earn more in summer than in winter but a few people manage to keep some money back to average it out.

I will be on basic pay next month because I was off sick due to an operation and only did two sectors so if you are unlucky it can happen but it's very unusual and luckily I know in advance so I will tighten up the belt this month already so I don't have to bad of a time next month...does that make sense?

Any more questions you can pm me if you want.
But don't worry too much, the pay is very competitive, you just have to get used to it not being the same every month.

Trollied April 07

Well jus returned to work after some leave looking forward to seeing what new inflight products and prices awaits me
And of course looked forward to reading the latest addition of our crew retail mag 'Trollied'
So come on hands up, who has had a read?
Well yes I did (need something to read during those long sectors )
Ok i will be honest there is some usefull info in there about new products and prices.
BUT there is some stuff which well, I think is b*****ks Sorry Lee Johnson if you read this no offence, just opinion.
Anyway I refer to mainly the Shopping Channel DVD for crew, yes thats right a DVD for crew about the new easyjetShop as it is now called (Thats another issue )
So basically they have produced a DVD in the style of QVC shopping channel about new products, also more information on all the products in the bar and other Tips and Hints, which we can watch in our OWN TIME AT OUR LEISURE. Now not meaning to be rude to our inflight management team, but is this not a huge waste of money producing DVD's for crew which will most likely NOT watch it when they get home. And also does the Bar Wars training they get during new entrant training not prove good enough?
Soory guys but would rather see the money from the DVD production go towards our end of year Bonus thanks.

I enjoyed the free samples of smoothie, sprite and Dolce and Gabbana most of all.

I loved all the selling stuff, made me laugh.I hate selling stuff and find if people want stuff they ask for it. And I still make a lot in commission despite not being bothered! That's what I hate most about the job-pressure on sales!

The new products should be fun, I can see a lot of 'wastage' with the bacon sarnies and pizza Yum.

BUT who will pay 1.70 for a cup of tea, 1.40 for a small water or Pringles?! I think that is too much, even for EZY!

Hmmm easyJetShop...what is the point? To make us a bit classier?

And I will not even look at that DVD! I don't care about the bonus as I'm leaving soon but they should invest more in crew food instead.

New Bars

Hi Folks,

How are we all?

Well I have been operating a few days now with the new bars, and to be honest, I dont think they are that bad, Infact in some way they are better as there is less products.

Even though the price has gone up on water, pringles hot drings ect, I have had no issues from pax, and also have sold quite alot aswell. (they were ALC and AGP flts) but still bars did well.
Pizza is very popular i noticed.

And the gift bar, so nice now not to have Debenhams dept store crammed into the bar.

Pizzas?

I was wondering how the cooking of pizzas work on the A319? Am I right in thinking that they only have the one small oven at the back (big enough to cook the crew food)?

I seem to remember some years ago (2001-2002) that the number of products in the bar were simplifed? Has this happened again?

The bars are more simplified I think.
The kiosk Sorry 'easyjetshop' as it is now called has less snack brands in, which makes things a little more simple, And the gift bar has cut back on products to, again making things more simple.

Just the prices to get used to now

SCCM course

I'm starting to get a bit nervous about my SCCM course which is next week.

I've completed my workbook and have re-organized my folder and started reading the manual (once more...).

Is there anything else I can do to prepare myself (no more flying until then so only theory)?

Will the course actually make you feel prepared to do the job or is the coaching flight the first time you ever feel like you are doing something that has to do with the everyday job?

Anybody out there who's been through it all and happy to share some experiences?

Much appreciated!
