I was invited for assessment with both HKA & HKE , as you may know u pay for your travel and accommodation and all the expenses
passed both screening as i am already rated and 10 years+ on type , no big deal

went home waiting for the joining date i get an email from both companies that due to their top management they won’t hire me ,,
later i found out its becuase of my nationality , so there it is
and i DO hope both companies shut down

look for another reason buddy

I have an upcoming assessment with HKE. I've shifted threw the forum and have seen plenty and feedback but after the latest info.

What's the assessment like?
What's the morale like in the airline?
Anything important I should know?

The main shareholder and parent Airline are defaulting on lease payments and loans. Others "in the know" might be able to comment further on how this might affect HKE.

Been invited to the HKE A320 type rated interview next month. I've gone through the topic but was unable to scavenge latest information about the interview / assessment.

Any guidance will be appreciated . Thank you !

The pilots at HKE are working their nuts off at the moment and having to contimplate the airline being taken over by CX. Whilst their employment is assured their futures are not. I hope you get a reply soon from an authorative source.

HKE SUCKS

I worked there. Was a captain NTR. Total crap instructors, training is the worst Iíve ever seen. They focus on so much minutia and bs itís pathetic. Iím at s US carrier now on the same equipment. I feel like I have added 10 years to my life. So much easier and more practical then HKE. Serisouly, donít even bother itís not worth the hassle.

Feedback for this bunch.

They invite you for the assessment and book flights with 10 hour transits in between.

That was enough for me to realise the sort of airline they are.

Anyone given the interview for HK Express recently? Curious about the questions being asked in general in the technical interview. Any insider will be appreciated !

No tech questions, only HR questions (3 reasons why you wanna join , what do you know about us and stuff). Donít worry about it cuz they are not listening. The money maker is sim. Normal Takeoff, Steep turns, VOR radial intercept, Go-around, Eng failure during go-around after clean up, OEI landing. Fully manual flying without FD and A/T until Go-around.

Good to know yoyo320. Best wishes for you and your career.
Just sad to know you hope for HKE and HKA shut down and leave so many people out...

HKA stop hiring last year due to dramatic HNA change of plans. They were hiring all nationalities.
HKE still hiring for all positions.

I speak under correction, but I have heard that all hiring is frozen due to the Cathay takeover.
