It seems like DHL/EAT has opened up again for FO A330 applicants, on career.aero?

Assessment

Hi guys.
Does anybody have recent experience with the Assessment for DHL/EAT via Interpersonal?
Any tips how to prepare?
Rumors say the Skytest prep is useless.
Id be thankful for any help.

The race to the bottom already started in DHL some time ago.

If you go to BSL, which is technically in France, you will meet a FedEx 757, coming down from CDG. Bottom line: We go nowhere, they go everywhere!

I don't know if BSL is technically France or not, to me its Switzerland. They don't go everywhere, but they can do more in Europe than we can in the US and I think that has something to do with the decision of a few european countries some 80 years ago, to be ruled by the americans rather than by the germans. ;-)

FWIW I have a lot more than 1000 TT on A330, and 13 years Airbus FBW, but despite two applications to EAT, I have never heard anything from them. I also passed the interview and SIM test for DHL, but that does not feed across to EAT because they are different companies. I suspect they are being ageist or they only want German or EU nationals?

anyone who went already through the process of DHL EAT assessment lately for their 330 FO positions?
I would be also very keen to hear more as my application is also in their pipeline

As long as you have the right to work and live in the EU, its not a problem. ;-)

With an ICAO code of LFSB, that spells France to me - otherwise, I agree.

Yep, but because Basel is still in Switzerland, there might be different rules for that, I have no clue.
The EU seems to be very open minded towards a few other nations when it comes to traffic right, see Qatar at the moment.
