Sorry for disrupting - still no Brexit rumours at DHL and other freight ops? Now that flyBMI went belly up...

Flybmi not relevant to this discussion other than to say how sad it is and hope peeps find jobs quickly.

Iím sure a whole bunch of contingencies are being discussed but until the politicians get their act together and give final brexit a shape we wonít know how it will all end up.

Fair enough, I saw some relevance in UK operators active in EU bases though. Which applies to DHL UK. But - no news is still good news.

Anyone have an update on the DHL recruitment process? Have they dropped aptitude tests?

Since night work/fatigue is an issue and maybe a reason for people to move on as soon as they can(?): would ops like DHL or night freight in general be a little more generous with older applicants if they already bring shift work experience?

Thinking that if you can do the night hours/fatigue management and donít have as many other options to fly jets or make it big elsewhere (due to age), you are more likely to stick around. Would they consider that a plus enough to balance the disadvantage of being a late starter?

Good luck. Plse read through this thread - many answers in there already. I have no knowledge of the interview process, so like any normal application process. I donít know what bases are on offer so do not leave the interview without knowing which base you will be offered, what % contract will be offered and how you plan to make the base work logistically.

SAULGOODMAN. What is your agenda with DHL? Pease donít talk it down - much as I hate the idea of leaving the EU (which may or may not happen) there is no expectation of redundancies - quite the opposite with recruiting and training going ahead.

@dboy, the social contribution is not useless no matter if you are commuting or not, it pays your health care, your pension etc. you pay all that in Germany, but with that you will get health care in the country you live in and your pension contribution will be than taken into account and credited in any country of the EU, maybe even in a post Brexit UK, who knows.

But to answer your question, expect around 220-240h per month, that's about 750-800GBP but only about 50% of that is tax free.

@SG in your case I wouldn't apply at all.

I have no agenda with DHL. I worked several years for them and was quite good. However I would not go to DHK now on a sterling contract with the uncertainty of brexit. I would rather go to EAT/ASL. Especially if you are a EU citizen. That is all.

DHL ops could well be on of the best gig in town. Easy to commute. Easy operation. Good guys. They should just go back to the week on/off roster and nobody would leave.

@SG, of course you can have your opinion and certainly you can post it here. But the thing is, your post shows that you have absolutely no clue about the situation in DHK.
So it might be wise to just leave it as it is and not to give any advice about a future in DHK.

And I don't mean this in a bad way.
