congrats

@ helm737

May I ask when did you apply and when did you have your interview?
Also, did you just fly the 737 before or do you also have widebody experience?

Thank you.

The Doc

@ Supahfly: thanks a lot. I appreciate your welcoming words... and I can't wait to change my alias

@ Dr. Esteban: I was on the waiting list for one and a half years, applied around two and a half years ago... it was a bit of a wait, but no regrets!

I only flew 737NGs. Got 6000 hrs on it by now, 2600 PIC. No wide bodies... so far.

It feels simply awesome to get a go after all... and maybe it makes the job even more special to you after you had plenty of time to reflect about what you really want.

cheers

To all who will start this year with Cargolux, enjoy the training!
If you flew 737 before it should be relatively easy.

Hello there.

Saw on interpersonel.de that there are a few recruitments planned in 2010, can anyone confirm that they are all fininshed or will there be more, how many have been hired this year total including contractors?

Regards

Few minutes ago I filled up my Cargolux application form via interpersonal.de. I also find some Cargolux HR contact information on other website. Would it be a good idea to send a Cover Letter and a Resume via company’s Human Resources webmail too?
Considering that this is my 1st Professional Pilot Application, I think in need some experienced guidance in this matter. Any opinions?

Thank you very much, and good luck to everyone!

Looks like 40 is still a limit at Cargolux...

In case, like myself, you're 40 or over (I just turned 40) it's probably not worth spending time doing the application form. Have the hours, licenses, plenty of Boeing time, etc and just received the "we're not interested" email. Three colleagues of mine with almost identical CVs were invited for selection. The difference? All late twenties.

Looks like ageism is alive and well in Luxembourg! Oh well...

Thumbs down

My application was also rejected by interpersonal.de. The truth is that I'm far away from Cargolux Jobs Entry Requirements (http://www.pilotjobsnetwork.com/jobs/Cargolux). And my MiG-21 experience worths almost nothing on the market. That's it!

My application has been with them for over a year, so I guess it takes them some time to process them! Got the email a couple of days ago. The three colleagues I was referring to applied about a year before I did and one passed the tests and is in the holding pool. So I don't know if the recent processing of my application is due to imminent hiring or the agency just clearing the backlog.

Hello,

I sent my initial application in July, contacted 3 weeks later and got invited for the selection in september. Now i've got a date for interview in a few days. Just above minimum requirements, but in late twenties and living quite close from Lux. It helped for sure.

I'll keep you advised. However, if the interview turns up well, I have no idea if it's for a direct or rapid start, or if it's for a hold pool..

Hi,

I would like to know how long it currently takes to move to the left. I know it's very long, but i would like to have a more precise idea (12? 15? 20???)

Thanks
