Hey Chile, I just saw FlyBe up on the FTE site too but I didn't see an 'opening' date and it accepted my form when I hit submit (well, it said thank you anyway!). The timings in Ian Cheese piece were still the old ones though, like you say

Good luck to all those off to manchester with FTE on Mon/Tues

Be Careful!

I wouldn't put your application in until the opening date as there is a history if these applications going 'missing'. I put mine in a day or so early for the BA Cityflyer scheme and never recieved a reply and had to phone FTE.

Now that you've done it i would leave it but keep your eyes on your inbox and if it gets close tothe clsing date and you've heard nothing either way, then chase it with FTE.

Just so you're all aware!

Thanks for the heads-up Chile. I've known others who've had similar problems with submitting online for FTE so always keep a watchful eye. No worries

PS: Just had another look - the only reference I could see to a date for opening for applications is 19th February in the original details page so am hopeful they are actually open now. Either way will post when hear something to confirm

Flybe MAPS

Hi all,

Received list of questions today, along with dates of 3rd and 4th stage (if successful).

The 3rd stage is in Exeter in late August...i'm guessing that will be airline interview etc etc. (Please correct me if i'm wrong!)

The 4th stage is in September, will this be the assessments in Jerez???

Have many applied for this scheme? Good luck to all!

Hi,

I also received my list of questions today. I believe the stage 3 (first interview) is the selection tests run by FTE and the second interview (stage 4) is with Flybe. A friend of mine has just got onto the GB scheme and this was the set up with them. However, this could be set up slightly differently.

Cheers

Flyer!

chileconcarne27,

Give their HR dept a phone and get some feedback - take it onboard for the next company assessment.

Chin up fella.

I will do that, can't lose anything i suppose. I have written to Captain Cheese with my issues so we'll see what he has to say.

Does seem a bit unfair, but then i'm biased!

Think i'll try and change my holiday dates! Priorities and all!

That is strange that you get all the way to the 4th stage and this time they don't give you a chance! Unless they're in the mindset that if your unsuccessful once you can't reapply???

Did they give you any feedback as to why you were unsuccessful?

Nope, no feedback what so ever!! Even at stage 4 they just say that you were unsuccessful. Even if you request a reason they won't give you one.

I'm going to keep applying to every MAPS that comes up though...one day everyone else will be accepted and it'll eventually be my turn again!

Feel like i'm banging my head against a brick wall with all these 'sponsored' schemes though

I must be a glutton for punishment!

Chile, definitely suggest calling Carmen about getting binned at this stage because I would have thought their selection criteria at this point are fairly clear (eg # GCSEs >x = yes, else no) so they may have made a mistake if you're sure you satisfy them?

Having said that, I have heard that for some schemes they don't want people to re-apply for the same scheme if rejected at airline interview stage so maybe worth asking them if that's the reason instead perhaps.

Just got my questions through so it did accept my app thankfully

Good luck to all...

wonder how many women apply, think a lot has to do with age, life experience and current relationship status. No harm in applying again for flybe femalewannabe..Exeter is only an hour down the road for me hence me giving it another go, I can understand if your up north though or in scotland.

I received the questions yesterday (Thursday) morning. Will hopefully have them completed by this evening just to be on the safe side. Difficult to know how much to write for each one... I'm guessing 200 words maximum, anyone any other ideas?

Questions

Personally i don't think it matters too much, although i guess if you write too little they'll think you haven't put the effort in...write too much and they might get bored half way through!!!

Think they'll expand on the questions within the interview stage to get an idea of who you are, although i may be wrong?

looking back at the questions they sent me, there was only one question that had a specific word limit and that was the one about why you want to fly for Flybe. Therefore I think its safe to say that this is the only question where they are particularly bothered about the length of the answer. Don't forget, at the start of the questions they ask you to answer with detail, perhaps some people may feel they need to write more for certain answers. Although if you write too much you run the risk of waffling and writing unrelevant information. So yeah you can see, its quite hard to get the right balance!

Quote: Personally I think you should follow the instructions - not more than 200 words means not more than 200 words.

Yes this is correct for one of the questions but the others are open to interpretation. A certain level of detail is required for you to explain or describe an ocasion or situation. I think you have to stand out or face getting binned at the first hurdle!

I suppose the reason they only give you 3 days is to put you under pressure (especially when you work long hours like i do!)

Any idea how long we have to wait to hear?

Good luck to all.
