From what I recall circa 500 were given the video interview stage last time. Aer lingus will be in touch when they're ready and even when they start contacting candidates to progress to the next stage, this could take a few days to over a week which is what happened last time, you have to keep in mind there's a lot of candidates here and it takes time, you've done all you can and you will know either way.

Hello Ana36! actually it is not a lot if you think of the number of candidates! lets say there are 3000 applications, in 30 days equals 100 applications per day (even if 1/2 were rejected because didnt pass the assessment, that would equal 50 appl. to be analysed per day.... not to mention the pressure and they responsability they got this time, so i think it is fair enough to wait...

Just to clarify, 500 people were given the assessment and video interview stage or 500 people passed the assessment and video interview stage? Did they cut 2500 people before they even took the tests? I've not heard from anyone that they were not sent the assessments.

Last time it was split into 2 sections (section 1 aptitude tests, section 2 (if successful at those) video interview). 500ish were given video interviews. From that I believe around 150-200 were invited to assessment centre.

I'd expect similar numbers to assesment centre this time.

Good luck.

Well if you put it this way ...you are right..not an easy task for them...it's just this waiting that's killing our patience and makes it hard on everyone...but we'll get there. ...

500 people were selected from the aptitude tests (so they watched 500 video interviews).

240 people will be selected from the video interviews and invited to the assessment centre.

Good luck to everyone!

Interesting - in previous years they've taken 10-12 so that's a bit of an increase. That might be a bit too many for a single course aswell, maybe they're planning on running 2?

I'm talking about current selection. Two years ago, the aptitude tests and video interview were two separate stages of the recruitment process but number of people selected for each stage were quite similar if I recall correctly.

I asked. It sounds right anyways as it would be quite similar to the number of people selected for each stage of the recruitment process two years ago.
I have no idea though when they will announce the results.. I thought this week but havenít heard anything either. Still have two weekdays left.. Fingers crossed.

I was expecting to receive something this week but I guess we got to wait one more week... Did you see the following sentence in their Pilot Programme page ?
  • Candidates may also be asked to retake the online assessments during the assessment centre
Do you have any idea of what does that mean exactly ?

They ask the candidate to retake in case they feel that the candidate has done some cheating while taking the assessments at home...
