A quick trawl through the old posts will reveal plenty of info about selection.

If applying for EAT, there is no DLR, but the selection through Interpersonal runs along the same lines (CBT, group exercises, interview, sim ride).

Have they (EAT/career.aero) invited anyone with a profile closer to a cadet rather than a TR-experienced freight dog for interviews, yet?
For a while I had automated emails saying "sorry" for the silence, that they were busy making decisions, etc,etc. Then the news of the 13-odd A300-600 came along and...more silence.

From the horse's mouth (DHL UK/HR office) I have recently been told that the whole recruitment process is on hold because it's a busy time of the year for them, etc, etc...

I would say that the almost-demise of Astraeus and the uncertainty over Thomas Cook (both B757 operators) doesn't really help to shed some light.

Regards

@drag king - At least some of the latest 757 recruits are direct from flight school.

@hotelmodemetar - 13 are for EAT. Last 5 TBC.

Hi everyone,

I have done some reserach on PPRuNe but actually haven't found much about EAT/DHL-UK.
Any info or link to the relevant topic would be greatly appreciated: usual stuff like typical roster, $$, leave system,benefits and so on.
Thank you.

S.

DHL Air (UK) are holding 2 assessment dates in March at LHR for FOs. 12 month contracts through the usual agency. 757 rating and experience required.

However, if you have already applied directly to DHL Air (even if you have heard nothing) you cannot apply for these agency positions.

EAM,

the actual timing wasn't really what I was interested in.

Any insight on the basics of the job at EAT/DHL-UK?

EAM,

In order to be offered a job you first need to apply for it and before applying for something usually one gathers all the info required so that he can make an informed decision.

Ok, it was just that you said you are not interested in the fact that EAT is not hiring.
So for EAT they are not hiring this year and there are already pilots on the waiting list.
DHL UK is as far as I know only taking DEC at this time.
All all are LEJ based.
By the time your application will be considered by any of the two companies, the conditions could have changed.
Anyway good luck.

It's not a bad place to be if you can get your head round LEJ basings. Please use the search function - there's a lot on here about DHL, quite a bit posted by me and I can't be bothered to repeat myself. Again. Sorry and good luck.

Unless they have changed it for future assessments, DHL Air UK do their interviews at EMA.
First is an interview with and if that is successful it will be a sim assessment on a 757.

Thanks EAM,
but I think is changed as they told me that the assessment is divided in 2 phases.
First one is in Leipzig and consist in a series of test and group exercise (I'm trying to know which kind of test are ) and 2nd phase is successfull consist in the Interview and SIM.
