Interview tips for Flybe Stockholm (ATR First Officer)?

Hello guys,
I am in for assessment for an ATR First Officer position at Flybe Nordic based in Stockholm next week, and any tip is most welcome! From what I heard on the phone, I am to expect a kind of writen exam, an interview, and a sim check on a 737 sim.
Does anyone have any input on the selection (type of questions, how the sim check is like, etc...). Everything that can be rehearsed in advance is good to know!
Many thanks to all...

Hi

Hi saidlp,


I am also in for assessment but for the Dash8-q400, and I do not know when it wil take place. If you do not have experience with jets do a sim session in a b737 sim.whish you good luck and hopely get the job.

Thanks Flaps35,
yes, this could do no harm to train a bit on a 737 sim, as I have no jet experience, I'm just a little SEP FI who got recently type rated on ATR
I won't make it to a real sim, but I will see what a a few hours on a PC flight simulator can do.
Although, I've been told on the phone that they would not expect candidates to know the 737, and that they wouldn't actually be assessing our flying skills, but mostly how we do work together as a crew. Anyway, the better you know your environment, the better crew member you are...
Good luck to you mate, and hopefully see you in Stockholm some day

Simple, I'd take the 30k figure with a pinch of salt.

Hi guys

This is what I have found about their reqruitment policy in 2011.

Are your pilots expected to pay for their own type ratings?
No. A new pilot is given a type rating course that is paid for and provided by Flybe and he is bonded for a period of three years to cover the cost of the course. This is a reducing bond from the award of the type rating on the licence and reduces monthly over 36 months. If the pilot remains with us for three years, then no payment is due for the type rating. A future conversion to the Emb195 would generate a further three-year bond to cover the new type rating course.
I hope this is not chanced.
Thre is nothing known about the reqruitment process for 2016




greetings

Thank you very much for your inputs.
So, if the sim check is just testing basic flying skill, I have at least a chance to make it through, although I know very little about the 737
I'm already rated, so in case they ever hire me, it won't hurt that bad

And yes, confirmed: 32K€ for the rating (with low visibility proc).

Correction:

Important correction on my previous post: the training fees are rather high if you are not rated, and you need to fund the initial cost, BUT they are refunded on the following schedule:
If you leave:
within 12 months - No training fees repaid.
12 and 18 months - 1/3 of Training Fees repaid
between 18 and 24 months - 1/2 of Training Fees repaid
between 24 and 30 months - 2/3 of Training Fees repaid
between 30 and 36 months - 5/6 of Training Fees repaid
more than 36 months – 6/6 of Training Fees repaid

So appart maybe from the fact that you must fund the training fees in the first place, this is a very fair contract. It is pretty normal that an airline wants you to fly for them for a while if they are to cover your training fees
