Received a call/email for an assessment next month.

I'm aware that previous candidates are being discrete about the assessment process - and I agree with their reasons.
However I would appreciate any general tips one could provide

Cheers.

Just prepare as you think is correct. I cannot give any additional information other than the one in the e-mails.

They invite people at random - 320 TR guys, FI, TP pilots and ab initios.

First you'll have a group assignment with about 10 of your peers. It's the standard thing; Solve a problem in limited time, and someone has to present the findings. You'll have about 30 min. The scenarios change every time, but they're never very complicated.

Then you'll have the panel exercise. In groups of 3 or 4. They give you a statement, you have to give an argument for or against the statement in 1 minute, and then your peers get to rebuke your argument. At the end, you'll have to give an answer as a group, so don't be afraid to change your answer based on their arguments. Takes about 15 min tops.

The interview is your standard fair competency based interview. Give a time when x y z why AL, why pilot. They also ask tech questions, but they seem to favour procedures. As in, what would you do when the captains dies after take off? Takes about 30-45 min. As always, you'll never know how you did and what they're looking for exactly. All part of the game

It's the standard fair - They're all very nice people and they'll put you at ease.

It seems that the recruiting process has changed. A friend of mine took it last year and he only had at that time an interview and then a simulator check. He was TR on A320 but with no experience (250hrs of flight).

Some candidates seem to be getting a little less notification than usual. Surely there is still a high demand for such a position, I would find it interesting if Aer Lingus were struggling to find suitable candidates to call for interview.

@Merovingio : Only TR on A320
@Shamrock : The person from the HR told me that she tried to call me but was unable to leave a message. I don't know why.
I don't know when she tried... probably yesterday.

Does anyone know approx the amount of candidates being sought? It looks like the interviews are going into Feb and possibly beyond , this would be one of the biggest recruitment drives by Aer Lingus in a long time.
