Thanks Damien60 and best of luck with the next stage.

Has anybody made contact with HR about their application and made enquiries as to when/if they can expect to receive an invitation for assessment??

Does anyone know how long it takes before Aer Lingus will call/mail you after you have completed the personality assessment?

Aer Lingus hire quite a few international pilots, likewise I know of countless Irish guys where I currently work who have all been turned away by them, I don't think nationality forms a part of the process

Why would you ask such a question?
EASA licence with required criteria.
It's quality not nationality that counts.

Maybe they should be asking themselves who will join Aer Lingus, get a free type rating and 1500 hours, then leave to go elsewhere? Or who will join and stay for the rest of their career? If they took that into consideration then maybe they wouldn't need to get contractors and do major, expensive recruitment drives every couple of years.
My tuppence worth...

Hi everybody!

I passed the online assessment on november and received an email telling me that aer lingus will call me for an interview on january or february.
Does someone know if i can expect a call or not? Because i saw that a lot of you have already had a call and/or on interview, so anybody else in my situation and waiting for a call?

Thank you for your answer !!

I'm not Irish, and I'm in the process, and as far as I know also 5 other non-Irish has been invited to interviews/sims, so nationality is not a factor (however good English level is).

Hi anthonydagon, I received the same email as you and still waiting. If you read the email they sent it says they "may" invite you for assessment. Fingers crossed.....

PS I am Irish and have not got the call yet.

Hi eukal, did you receive the email back in Oct saying you may be called as you passed the initial screening phase of the selection?

Best of luck with the interview.

Hi here,

I had to do a personality in early December and since I have no news either positive or negative.

Can I still hope something ?

Hi Mlambin.

I think you can. Somebody in the thread said that there will be some interviews in february so you will probably have an answer soon.

Hi all,

I was wondering if the group interviews were eliminatory or not ?
I mean does everybody take the whole process with group interviews and personal interview so they have the big picture of each one? Or do they eliminate some candidates after the group interviews ?

Thank you

Hit the nail on the head my man!! You don't see AF, KLM, Lufthansa etc hiring a load of foreigners. They hire their own primarily with the odd foreigner so they can't be accused of anything untoward. And you know what, I don't blame them. All these foreign lads EI hire will leave at the first opportunity with a decent carrier in their home country. Been happening for years now as Skindogg has said yet EI not seeming to learn their lesson.

Maybe requiring a bit of Gaeilge will sort that out , the main reason foreigners don't really get into AF, LH etc is because they don't speak the language and so don't really apply.

You are absolutely correct Officer Kite, that is the main reason foreigners get turned down by those companies. EI absolutely should require a cupla focal!
