You're very good for keeping the morale up, cheers! Do I remember you saying in a thread (possibly this one) that you got a call weeks after they began calls? Fair play on getting your current role, do you mind me asking what school you went through?

I have been through the cut e process before with another company (non aviation related). The following is the process used at the assessment centre for that job, maybe this one won't be a million miles away, take from it what you want, it may be of some use:

Group excercise: Divided into teams of 6, set a task of building a lego model, with numerous option and fake currency to buy video instructions on an ipad, a book of instructions, get to view built model for a few moments, the exercise is timed and your a marked as a team on completion time, money left over and accuracy of model. This is only part of it as for every member at the assessment there was a cut e or company rep sitting behind you taking notes on your input/interaction with the group/ability to lead or follow etc.

Role play: you are briefed with a scenario related to the job role, you enter a room with a cut e rep and a company rep and complete the scenario while the company rep pretends to be a client and interacts with you and throws a few curve balls at you to see how you handle the situation whilst the cut e rep marks you.

2 to 1 interview: this one was tricky as the cut e rep conducts a normal job interview covering all the basics and the company rep picks out little bits of info you give and apply them to the job role, but if you change your answer or contradict what you said to the first guy he pulls you on it. Example: I am not a person who deals with confrontation. And you tell the company rep you would be able to deal with a confrontational client or Co worker the cut e guy will refer back to your first statement.
That is basically the mode of the interview where they play you off each other, it's like a minefield but if you stick to your guns you will be fine.

That was the format for the assessment centre for that job in particular, as I said it's probably not going to be identical but this info may help some of ye to prepare.

As for me I'm still waiting.....

thanks Johnnyj , useful and informative - not only for the aviation sector...

isn't easier for them to select most of the recipients and send them all in the same time?....the rest of us who did not get called should have received them by now....i don't know...still hoping here ...until this email pops in....

Nonsence @blackpudding, Iíve worked in Talent Acquisition for 15 years including within EK & we want to see that candidates have social skills & able to communicate not social recluses squirreled away in their rooms prior to assessments!

Good luck to all of you attending & do network away, I assure you networking can only bring success when done in the correct way 😊

Just like AL are calling successful applicants, it may be the case they are now in a position to send rejection emails to those who definately havenít made the grade.

For those who havenít received anything yet (myself being one) there is still hope that the calls arenít finished yet or we are in the Ďmiddle poolí and could still be called at a later date.

Hello,

I wonder if the unsuccessful emails will have been batched to send at once or?....

Still holding a little bit of hope!
