I don't think so guys... it would be too quick... nothing official points to that,
I think that we all have to wait a few weeks more

A guy I trained with got a call from AL yesterday. He is in Dublin next week for interview. He is a fresh fATPL.

Keep by your phones.

Yes, my information did come from a reliable source. I called the recruitment team at Aer Lingus and that's what they told me.

Comforting news, yet conflicting with what others are saying.

I guess we will have to bite our nails a little bit longer.

Not meaning to sound disrespectful, but why would a fATPL not be called before someone with 1500+ hours on type?

If Aer Lingus only wanted pilots with xx number of hours then they would have stated that in the minimum requirements. Therefore there is surely as much chance of someone with 250 hours getting a call as someone with 10x that, seeing as nobody knows what type of person they are looking for?

I inferred that they are looking to take a mixed bag of pilots, from non type rated 250 hour guys upwards. If they had no intention of taking many low hour guys they wouldn't inundate themselves with applications by not stating a minimum hour/type rating requirement. They probably want to be able to train some newer guys in their own way.

There’s a thread in the Terms and Endearment titled ‘Shamrock Hiring’ the word on that thread is that applications closed July 11th , if you don’t hear (via email) within 4 weeks of that date (8th Aug) then you’re out. There’s also a post on that thread indicating that a few individuals have already been called to Dublin for the next phase.
Not wishing to rain on anyones parade just exercising a little expectation management, there's still 9 days to go until the 4 week cut off so hang in there and keep a good watch on your email accounts.
Looks like that day has arrived and still no news from shamrock.

Better get on with updating my cathay application !

I think we should not give it up!! There must be at least one person here, who would get any answer. So if nobody has written it yet, I hope there was no contact by AL to anyone yet.

Don't worry guys, I don't think anybody has been called yet. Any interviews at the moment are cadet interviews.

Syntax Error, I'm pretty sure there are no "inside" candidates.

syntax, the Cathay remark was tongue in cheek. I said it because one the same day (yesterday) I got an email from them telling me to update my application !

Of course I'd rather get the Shamrock gig, but it's all still quiet on the western front.

Any of those who know those who apparently have heard back and were invited to dublin know how they fared ?

Thumbs up


what is your qualification? Do you have a A320 TR? How many hours do you have on type? What is your total time? What was your score in on-line test?

Big surprise for me they selected mideurope guy. I had info they prefer IR UK pilots. This is good news for me.

Wish you luck! And keep us updated.

As anyone received an email like this one? I HAVE registered and completed the online assessment... Strange.......

Dear Applicant,

We are delighted with the level of applications received for the Direct Entry First Officer role. We have commenced the screening process for those candidates who successfully registered and completed their online assessments. We note from our records that you have either not registered to complete your online assessments or have registered but have not completed your online assessments.

You will receive an email today the 7th of August with a link to the assessments. You will have till Friday the 9th of August at 5pm to complete the tests. After this time, the competition will close. If you do not complete the assessments within this timeframe, we will take it as confirmation of withdrawal of your application.

Antoniomg I got the exact same e-mail even though I've already done the online assessments. Might give them a ring to find out if it's a mistake or not

Where did watt001's posts go ? Was it a wind up ?

Syntax, yep I'd rather be at the pointy end of an A320 for the whole flight as a FO rather than watch a 777 during cruise as a SO. - Plus its closer to home

^ $24000 a month! You sure?!!

I too have received the above mentioned email. I actually was locked out from completing one of the tests originally after my laptop froze, so I had to submit them incomplete. I did try email/phone the recruitment team to no avail!

I'm great full for this 2nd chance! However I'm not looking forward to the spatial reason tests at all. I can land a light twin and have a pretty decent training record with no issues, but I ain't too good with these tests!

perhaps he meant HKD I wouldn't even know how to spend that sort of amount !!

So they're still doing online assessments, which would hopefully suggest its not the end of the road for the rest of us until they've had a look at these late submitting guys scores.

Anybody else apart from watt001 hear or know anyone who has heard back from AL ?

Hello colleagues. I deleted my posts, because I was probably scammed. Someone called me yesterday, that he was from AL and he wanted to offer me an opportunity and that I would receive e-mail with details. I considered it as an invitation to interview. No e-mail has come and I started investigating.. The number I was called grom started +234 810 .... This should be some Nigerian number and after a small investigation, I found out, that they are No. 1 in scamming people via mobile phones. So, sorry for chaos I made here, I`m more disappointed than all of you together.
So, we still have to wait on... Good luck to all oyf you.
