application

Hey guys,

I applied in November, but apart from getting a confirmation from career.aero that they sent it to Cargolux haven't heard anything yet.
I also noticed that they took down the add on the website.

Are they still hiring or shouldn't I be hopeful anymore?

I was on the phone with IP the other day and they were saying that for the moment recruitment is finished and they don't know when it will start again. 'Could already be in a few months from now', the lady said - but take that with a grain of salt.

Mollymawk-Basic Skills Assessment

Hallo followers,
i had my Test..

Does someone saved (as PDFs) the BASIC SKILL ASSESSMENT (English, Mathematics, Science) Tests ?

Will share what I have... (for ebooks, give me a PM)
NOTE : xxx has exceeded their stored private messages quota and cannot accept further messages until they clear some space.
If your storage is full, I'm unable to replay PM..... basic knowledge !!!!

Note from Mollymawk.de :
Regarding the skills tests please be advised that Cargolux has set the acceptable minimum score at 70% (age-independent).Of course it is recommendable to score higher. As a matter of fact a considerable number of test takers achieve 100%

Test: is exact the same, e.g. same formula‘s and text, only values are changed (a=cm, b=m, c=0,m)
Question change to the opposite (mass to weight, equal mass to equal volume...)

TIP: time for Mathe is really short, most of us missed 1-2 questions...
English : our native speaker (british) got only 84%. Learn past/perfect

Day 3 - Group Game

All 4 days, we are the same group -4 guys.

First Play :
We got 5-6 pages on information and one page for our the resolution (! think that this is not important, they want to see us interact between us - don`t waste time with writing) -everybody got the same papers:
We are a Helping-Organisation, seating in England (remote spot), your are in charge for 4 teams (each team as 4-6 members with different ability's, age, working experience...). Each team are specialized (one for Africa, one for East China, on for South America...).
Begin : we got all 5min (or less) some paper :
1.) Phonecall from the Office of the Prime Minister, Appointment for Dinner
2.) Email : Earthquake in China, local Organisation need help and cloth, shoes and wintergear
3.) Email : Unknown Doctor has problem to pass border to china, needs help
3.) College MSG : Mrs ??? from Team ? has some health problems...
4.) Fax : Local Clothe Shop are giving some winter clothe for sale (donation)
5.).......

You and your colleges should find for each MSG(1..5) the right solution and write it into the paper...

Second Play :
Everybody got the same basic information :
You and your colleges (4+1) are on a Mounten in the Himalayas. One of the colleges broke his leg. He will survive only the next 12h
Your position: after base camp (valley-middle station-basecamp-top of the mounten)
Information : walking back to the basecamp takes 2h, 4h if you carry your college.
Everybody got the different information :
- you have 120m robe, 1 flash light, 1 medi kit, basecamp has a radio, helicopter is in the valley...
- you have food and water for 2days, middle station has WIFI, basecamp radio is broken...
- food from other group is at the basecamp, weather will be change to heavy snowstorm : beginning in 4h...
- Helicopter need 3h to middle station and 2h to basecamp(or place of exident), Snowstorm duration is 8h,
walking down from basecamp to middle station takes 4h...

You and your colleges should find a solution

>>> there isn`t any right or wrong solution.. they want to see you working in a group !!!!!

Third Play :
Single situation play, one by one with the psychology.
You got 1 paper with information (15min time to read, and on the end you can ask questions) :
You are FO and already flying, the vacation planning for ALL colleges already done and confirmed.
Your parents at home have some troubles with maintenance/contraction at here house. They ask you if you can come for helping/organisation.
The next vacation slot is booked from your classmate Camerun (also FO).
Now you meet him/her and you have to convince him/her that he/she gives you his/her slot..

Hello everyone,

Is there anybody on the forum who passed the Cargolux assessments in 2019/2020 for non-type rated 747 pilots and who is now on the waiting list??
I passed in February all selections but till now there are more than 25 people type rated hired after me (selections march to may).

I'm wondering how long we stay on that waiting list and if there is any info at all about the plans they have for hiring non type rated... aside of all the people who are available on the market with a 747 rating, do they have priority or not?

Thanks! and good luck to everyone in these hard times

Guys,

I just jumped back into this forum after quite a long time because I have a specific question regarding CV as I am about to consider an offer.
How is current staff travel for ground staff (corporate office) in reality? I know that agreements with PAX airlines are very limited but that there is the possibility to travel on the freighters.
However, how is staff travel on the freighters working in practice? How are the chances of being offloaded, are there a lot of restrictions and embargos etc.? I am usually quite flexible and willing to take strange routings, but I need to know how well this works.

I am asking because I am coming from a large European passenger carrier and this is a considerable benefit for me as I have family abroad. So it's quite a significant thing to consider. I have some friends at other cargo airlines where it works quite well, but as it seems, the rules and regulations vary quite a lot between carriers.

Thanks for any input!

Hi,
To be brief; you can forget about traveling on CV freighters. After a SAFA inspection in France a few years back PAX travel was banned on CV aircraft when "cargo aircraft only" freight is carried, which - as you can imagine - applies to most of our flights... Plenty of rumours about this restriction being lifted, but till now nothing concreet. Good luck.

How many hours does a FO fly and how many landings per month on average does a FO execute in Cargolux at the moment? And how much do perdiems, Sunday and night time supplements amount to on average gross? Any elements tax free?
