Hi fellows,

For those who applied already for Susi Air and got a reply back from the recruitment team, did you also had to attach a license verification letter as well as a free accident- incident report on your application. Are those two letters necessary at this stage?

Thank you!

Yes, you attached all necessary documents as required. I don't think they will contact the applicant if they considered the application to be incompleted.

Hey Krajchek,

You seem to know the company pretty well, I was wondering if you have heard any news about the ongoing selecting process,

It has been 2 months since I completed the on-line assessment, but nothing heard from them so far.
In the mail, they noted that applicants who passed the initial stage assessment will be further notified of interview details, so this basically means they don't continue communications with the people who didn't pass the first stage I assumed?

Thanks in advance.

Hello guys!

Has anyone received an invitation to the interview in Indonesia recently?

I just received the results of the on-line assessment.

Hello There. Sorry for late reply By now you must have heard back from them.
I have friends working at Susi, this is why I know a few things
It is quite confusing to me that you have done the online assessment already 2 months ago. As far as I knew the online tests was not up and running that time. Was that the Cut-e test? From Aero Synergy network?

If you have done the tests from Aero Synergy as the first stage, sorry I am not sure whether they reply back or not. I think they should reply with the results. IT is only fair. But never know.

Any news on your end?
Regards

But I didnt received an invite. I had received the results of the online test but it was inconclusive... Just with my “score” compared to the others. This week I received another email informing me that I was unsuccessfull.

Having read through this thread several times in preparation for the interview I felt compelled to contribute so others could benefit from my experiences.

First off applicants should be aware that should your application be considered, you will first be contacted to fill in a questionnaire and shortly after you will be requested to do psychometric and personality assessments online through a third party provider called Aero Synergy.

Susi Air will NOT pay for these tests and you will be required to pay Aero Synergy a fee of 150USD in order to complete the tests. Part of this initial assessment is also an English test which will be done via Skype. I would like to point out that the company conducting the English test was incredibly unaccommodating, they contacted me with an assessment time for the following day with less then 24hrs notice.

Unfortunately for me I was in a country where Skype voice calls are blocked and I was unable to complete the assessment. I requested them to find an alternative solution for conducting the test and suggested them to simply use Skype credit and call me on my mobile phone, after all they said the test would only take 10-15min and Skype credit for a call that length would cost around 2$ so I figured it wouldn't be a problem, especially since I just paid them 150$ for the privilege of being assessed.

My suggestion was completely ignored and I was instead asked if I would be able to travel outside the country to a place where Skype voice call was not blocked (not kidding)... I questioned such an absurd request from their behalf only to have my email go unanswered again. Regardless of this complete nonsense I decided to get a VPN to go through with the test since I had already paid the fee.

Having done both the English and psychometric tests it took about two weeks to get a reply from Aero Synergy saying they had received my results and had forwarded them to Susi. Fast forward another month and I was invited to a full interview. The invitation was obviously welcomed but it came with incredibly short notice which was obviously a concern with regards to getting time off from work, etc. Much to my surprise the interview was held in Europe instead of Indonesia. On the first day of the selection the applicants were told that this was only a "one off thing" that was done due to the management already being in Europe for other reasons.

The selection process consisted of a written test (around 170 questions in 1.5hrs), a sim session and personal interview with management. These were divided over a period of three days, however given that the interview was being held in Europe, this meant the process was unfortunately slightly different from the normal selection held in Indonesia. The written test seemed like it was very hastily put together. Some of the questions were repeated 4-5 times word to word, so it's obvious that they just pulled a bunch of questions from their question bank and printed them out. Prior to the interview the applicants were advised to study up on the C208 POH in preparation for the written, however out of the test there were no more then 5 questions that were Caravan related, everything else was CPL/IR stuff and some of it was somewhat obscure in relevance.

The simulator was conducted in an ATR 42 FTD, (not a full motion sim) on the same day as the written test. We were notified of the sim being in an ATR only 3 days prior to the session. This came as a shock to all of the applicants given that based on all the research we had done we were expecting the sim to be done in a C172 G1000 (as they do in Indonesia) or at least something remotely similar to it. The evening following the sim session we were emailed the sim profile with the call outs. Each of the applicants were paired with another applicant so that each applicant spent about 30min as PF and as PM. After completing the written test the same morning, we were told that applicants would receive the approach plates at least 30min prior to the sim session in order to have some time to familiarise with them. Unfortunately this was not adhered to and some of the applicants only got to look at the approach plates upon going in to the sim while other applicants had well over an hour to look at the plates...

The personal interview lasted about 1-1.5hrs and was conducted by two members of Susi management. The interview consisted of a bunch of personal questions about your background and TMAAT type questions. Some scenario based questions and very few tech questions about the Caravan. A few of the questions were formed in a way that they were trying to set you up so stay alert despite the situation being stressful!

I wish everyone applying to Susi the best of luck!

What a joke: those agencies charge $150 for a phone interview and they are too cheap to give a phone call!
They are just another scam to collect applicant's money.
With the looming pilot shortage, I am not sure that those middlemen will be able to keep scamming pilots for too long... Hopefully, we will soon charge them $150 to consider their job offers.

the requirements are going down ( see latest jobs on Susi site) because they don't get pilots and with stupid HR practices, it is not going to improve.
Also now more indonesian copilots get hired more or less because they are locals. Flying with them will be fun!

Good luck to all.

I can't believe you've got to pay to be assessed! Why is everything so expensive for a trainee pilot!!!

Susi

From what I have seen Susi Air looks like a nightmare to work for. I think it would be amazing to fly in this region but I have heard one too many horror stories.

I got a "next step" email from Susi after submitting my application approximately a month ago - looks like an English aptitude test.

I'm slightly curious to entertain the idea of working for Susi. Does anyone here know someone who has personal experience working for them? I would love to chat with someone who can tell me more from the inside (e.g. schedule, company culture, lifestyle, cost of living, wages, etc.) I've lived as an expat in Vietnam and I think Indonesia would be awesome

Hi!

I'm an airplane and glider pilot (licensed by EASA). Does Susi Air interested about gliding experience (as a fixed wing aircraft) or are they interested "power driven aircraft" hours only?
Thanks!
