I find the factoring hours thing a bit of a joke to be honest it just degrades you even more. Im currently a first officer at a different company but I fall under the cadet category when appling for Wizz.
1000 factored hours is about 1300 total time at 0.8, im not sure if wizz are doing this as a buffer.
This is due to the different SOP's at different companies. Someone with 1000 hours at Wizz will be more fluent in their operation than someone with 1000 from airline "B". Same applies at EZY.

Pilot Open Day Recruitment - Vilnius, Lithuania

What is this day?? They make an interview to everybody present in that day without any invitation or just to show up Wizz's future plans??

According with Wizz's website , the company does not directly administrate applications from type rated crew and that you are requested to contact the Agency of your choice from the approved agencies listed below. The agencies are independent of Wizz Air and as such Wizz Air does not accept any responsibility for the conduct of the agency in processing your application.

So is there anybody knows who is the right way??

I have type and 3 years of experience on Airbus and I applied through some agency but still waiting their call;

Is there anybody in the same my situation??

Pilot Open Day Recruitment - Vilnius, Lithuania

Does anybody have any info about what the exact process will be here?

Is it an opportunity to meet the Wizz recruitment team and their plans for Vilnius base and try to arrange an interview for a future date? Or will they be conducting interviews at the hotel already on this day?

Also, am I right in saying that in this case there appears to be no minimum hours required for these invitations to Vilnuis open day? Or is there still the hours/factorising required that they set recently with their agencies, will this still apply for the open day in Vilnuis?

Thanks for your help

Sounds confusing - like most company's releases - but below quoted webpage []Wizz Air specifies that:

"We are seeking for colleagues to join our VILNIUS BASE as
A320 Captains and First Officers

Date: January 21st 2011 from 8.00 am
Address: Hotel Novotel Vilnius, Gedimino av. 16, VILNIUS 01103, LITHUANIA

Please be advised that in situation that a high number of participants will join us on the day, the pilots with local residency (type-rated or non rated) will be given the priority in the selection process.

See you there!
Participants are asked to arrive sharp at the times indicated!"

I have also seen this information 3 days ago on their website.

Any idea what to expect on this day? I guess in order to be hired you also need to attend a sim assessment and a technical interview...

Or not? ?!

Thumbs down

@stratocus

You should call and refresh their memory. It seems like the Wizz Recruitment Team forgot about you...

It's strange...

Hello,

About this open day, I saw on the WizzAir website they are looking for A320 captains and first offier for their Vilnius base. Moreover, according the same website, they mentionned factorised hours for these positions.

Good luck,
Mehdi

Pilot Open Day Recruitment - Vilnius, Lithuania - 21.01.11

OK guys... You have below all details I remember.

There were about 50Έ60 candidates, most of them Lithuanians – which was good for Wizz, as long as the official stated goal was the dedicated recruitment for the future Vilnius Base.
After initial Pilot Starting Data Sheets sorting [the same as the one published online on Wizz application webpage], there were 5 candidates groups defined – each group containing 3Έ5 members and being formed according to company’s priorities [nationals first, than foreign pilots – profiles suited for company’s pilot pool].

The interview process included two sections – technical and HR; I found them both interesting and challenging – but this is, of course, my strictly personal perceiving, and it could be very subjective as long this is the 1st airline selection process I ever attended.

Considering the high number of nationals attending this meeting, the company's immediate needs were probably satisfied.

Hi,

In my opinion it wasn't a well organized event.
About 2/3rd of the candidates were not given a chance for an interview thus spent alot of money on travelling to Vilnius and also accomodation.
Already at around 9:30 in the morning we (2/3rd of applicants) were told that we will not be given a chance for an interview so many of us overwrote our ticket and flew back home.

Just as a fact, I am from the country of Wizzar's main headquarters.
If I am correct I was the only one present with Hungarian nationality and I wasn't even given a chance to introduce myself to fly the H-registered aircraft...

I am totally fine with having pilots from all over the world but I was a bit surprised.

All in all they told us in advance that local pilots will have priority but in my opinion they should have done a pre-application in order to avoid many people travelling over to Vilnius for no reason.

Regards
