Theyve invited a mix of people, from ab initio to experienced A320 pilots. They've been assessing people since early october and are looking to hire about 65 people this winter.

Did you guys complete the personality tests after the aptitude testing?? I have completed the personality assessment and have heard nothing since the "you have successfully passed the initial screening" email.

Hi,

I applied in August when the application process window opened and I just got the job this last week

I received the first set of 7 tests (multitasking, verbal reasoning etc... ) almost inmediately after the application window closed, just like anyone else. After two or three weeks I received the second set of tests and two weeks more after that I received the famous e-mail saying that I had passed but that I should not expect anything else until January.

Surprisingly, at the end of october, a lady called me and invited me to an assessment day to be celebrated in Dublin by the end of November. I went to the assessment day and spent all the day there. One week after they called again to offer me a spot for the sim test. One week after the sim test they called to tell me that I was being offered a first officer position.

Please do not ask me for details about the interviews or sim. We were told not to publish anything anywhere because they consider this process as a competition and it would not be fair if some people had details beforehand.

My guess is that due to the large number of candidates they may be splitting them in several groups and may take a veery long time to complete the selection for some candidates. Just a guess.

Be patient, do not desperate.

Shamrock Wings, firstly congratulations!

Secondly could you give any indications of what the contracts are like? For obvious reasons I understand if you wouldn't want to post specifics. But all the information I can find is over 5 years old, and the company has seen some changes in that time!

All the best!

Congratulations @ShamrockWings,

Just out of interest what is your experience level - are you type rated A320, multi hour commercial experienced etc?

There seems to be a good mix being called which is great.

Firstly, all I can say is that there is a contract (no Ltd company, self employed or anything like that) and that the TR is paid by the company (with a bond, obviously).

Condition wise I think that these two points are just enough to prefer this company among many many others.

Secondly, I have two uni degrees with experience in the aeronautical sector. Regarding pilot licenses, ratings and exp I'm just a guy straight out of the modular course with 350h total time. No previous TR, no time on type.
