Freebird Airlines - Turkey

Hi

Has anyone had any dealings with this airline? Good or bad.

Just been called for a sim session and interview with this airline. I have to also carryout out an independent mollymawk test before I get to the sim and interview. I was just wondering if this was normal. If so, any advice on completing it etc

Thanks

this is a typical assesment in turkey. Mollymawk is like DLR but much easier.

Hi

Hi Guys !
What kind of approach you chose - direct application or by recruitment agency ? I have ask you because I applied directly a month ago and there is no answer up to now ..

Hot of the Press!!

Just been on the phone to the HR Manager, they are looking at hiring around 10 first officers and the Type ratings is bonded for 6 months or so. This means minimum wage for 6 months then on to the full wage.

Thats all folks :-)

Well.. I applied today at 21:10 then received mail that They saved my declaration. Then at 21:20 i received message:

We hope you will appreciate that it is not possible to comment specifically on your application at the present time. If your qualifications match with our criterias, we will contact you again at the appropriate stage of the selection process.

WTF? The recruitment is closed?

How do they get around the 1500 hour ruling that is specific to Turkey, also whenever they advertise it is always for people with hours on type. This company has never been one to take on low timers, especially expats, if they have it hasn't been advertised for a long time.

How did you apply? I filled "Employment Application Form" like two years ago but never heard from them. I don't see any apply button. Do I miss anything? Please advice! Thanks!

I apply through their website. There is no apply button, but below all sections of application form there is some kind of sign button. By signing that you fill true data you send your application.

Anyway I received automatically rejecting mail. So I don't know what to think

My Mollymawk is next Friday. They told me to bring my results with me. And I havent done a TOEIC because I am a native english speaker educated in the UK so I assume I do not need one.
