I got my final confirmation and info package sent from AMC today for the assessement in Hoofdorp in late august, hope that will not be cancelled?

@1975,

Out of curiosity, are you being screened for Cargolux or Cargolux Italia?

I would be surprised if recruitment has been put on hold.. More aircraft will be joining the fleet soon and everybody's flying more or less flat out already.

Good luck anyway!

Thanks Indrapeora, for Cargolux

Cargolux second step
 
Good evening to everybody.

I would like to ask, if anybody has some details about the second recruitment step in Luxembourg?

E.g.
- Will there be some group interview, assessment and what will it be like?
- will the interview be only with personal questions or technical questions as well?
- what will happen in the simulator?

Thank you very much for your information 😊

Cheers
Morane

Is there any news about the hiring stop?
Does anybody know why this is? Maybe they can't follow with the training?

Still invited to the first round of assessment in Holland. Would appreciate any experiences so far!

Thanks a million

AMC assessment
 
Day starts at 08:45.

Whole day of computer test consisting of math, diagrams, English reading test, long term memory test, multitasking, basically any test you can think of is in it.
You will have a lunch break (don't have to pay for it). You can give yourself small breaks between test.
Somewhere in the day the psychologist comes in and you go for small talk (30 min) in the office, at the end of that you'll be given a case study and get 10 min to prepare. This play is done with two psychologist (one is your role play partner, the other is observing).
More test until the end of the day on the computer. Day finishes around 16:00/17:00 depending on how fast you go with the tests.

Result of the test is given 2-3 days later and gives a full report of your performance and at the end of it it says whether you meet Cargolux requirements or not.


So now, does anyone has information on the second round? Highly appreciate any info on that.

Regards

That's exactly my experience as well.regarding maths it has been math wording exercises. You are allowed to use the Microsoft calculator and the desktop text field most of the times. It makes sense to train to use that before, as it is very different to the use of paper and pencil. It takes more time and time is very limited of course!! In addition there are 100eds of psychological questions which you can only answer by yes or know or where you have to decide between a statement.
All in all a very relaxed and good atmosphere !

Good luck to everybody

2nd round
 
Thanks a lot for sharing your experience Bart!
At least someone is sharing on this forum!
Bart, did you prepare yourself? If yes, how, with what software? Thanks.
As far as the second round goes, from what I've heard from a guy that just got in (a month ago) you 'll get an interview with the chief pilot or some high raking equivalent monitored by a psychologist. Questions at the interview are general ATPL knowledge, more specifically the part A and your actual aircraft systems and limitations knowledge.
Then there is another group exercise monitored by psychologists (not sure if this one is part of the first round or second round though...)
That's it... If you succeed in there, you'll head for the third round which is the sim...
Good luck!
Regards,

Chewy

How did you prepare for the first stage? Skytest?
Thanks

C56XL 30th Aug 2014 18:21

Hi,
so no atpl questions in the first round?

Thx for all the informations:ok:

Morane1981 31st Aug 2014 04:58

No ATPL questions in the first round!
No explicit English test as well, as everything happens in English anyway.

C56XL 31st Aug 2014 20:18

Thanks a lot for all the information:ok: How did you prepare yourself for the first round? Did you use the skytest? I try to do some different cbt's.

And what is specifically meant by 'Part A'? I didn't do English ATPL....

Thanks!

Varig 8th Sep 2014 17:44

Do You need to have european citizenship or right to work and live there to apply? They dont mention this on their requirements like other airlines usually do

Parkbremse 10th Sep 2014 11:30

Has anybody with a positive on requirement feedback heard anything from Cargolux about the next steps so far? Waiting for awhile now and was wondering whether its just me or the whole recruitment process is on hold for now. Feedback greatly appreciated, thanks :-)
