Hey all,

I got the invite to do the online tests, anyone mind sharing whether or not there was anything difficult or different from tests most of us have done in the past?

Will do it tomorrow after work, good luck to all!

Spider man,
Not that one !! the other one who doesn't work for EK . Cocky but useless.
Dreamlinerguy , might I suggest if your level of dedication is thus, the closest you'll get to a Dreamliner is sticking yourself to the revell model.

Damn! Pretty sure I've screwed it up, only managed half of the maths stuff! Lot of faffing around with tables/charts. I wonder if 10 correct answers still be good.

Anybody heard anything since taking the test?

I never managed to complete all the maths questions either but there's nothing we can do about it now.

To all those that are looking for pointers or hints regarding the tests, without wishing to offend, this is a competitive process with those with the best results progressing to the next stage. The people that have already completed the tests did so with no outside help and it would be foolish of them to offer an unfair advantage to those that are competing against them. Just get in there complete the tests as well as you can and hope that you're successful.

Good luck.

How much time to allocate?

Hey Guys,

I was going to do the online test some time tonight or evening.

Was wondering if anyone who has done it could tell me how much time it takes to complete it?

Wondering whether to do it at an internet cafe, or when I get back home!!

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Thinking about it, is it not too late anyway? It clearly stated by the end of the week which was Saturday... Everyone might not of had the same deadline I guess.

Hi guys,

I just want a quick time frame? 1/2hr, 1hr, 1.5hrs?

Life is a bit hectic right now and I'm trying to just see whether to do it before I get home (which will be late) or now before I've got the train!

Obviously I can't stop the test half way through if it gets too close to my train time.

Cheers

Hey,

Yeah I think they may have, doesn't seem to be there on Jet2 careers page any more.
Anyways, I did the psychometric profile first as it had most questions (250) and no time limit.

The numerical reasoning was pretty tough (time pressure). Mechanical reasoning was straight forward.

Good luck everyone

I know a few have been contacted with a positive response and an invitation to Manchester. I don't know if they plan to give a response even in case of negative outcome. Truly hope so!

I think it might have closed at some point last week, although there was no date specified.

Vale and Schweizer, sorry to hear that it was bad news for you both. Iím at work at the moment (non flying job) so I cannot check my personal emails, however I strongly suspect that a custard pie will be waiting in my inbox.

Commiserations to all those getting bad news and good luck to those that have got through.

Sorry to hear the bad news! I'm expecting the same at this stage, I also heard of a guy getting an interview invite a few days ago.

Good luck to those who got through!

Despite the cross eyed driving, I made it home safely and still no reply in the inbox or the junk box so the wait continues.
