I emailed them to make them aware of a change of contact information (phone) and got a rejection email 10 minutes later. With the competition wasn't expecting much success but it was fun while it lasted. Onto pastures new!

Hard luck, I did the same and I was told they would be back within the next 2 weeks, I have a funny feeling anyone in the same boat as me is on the knifes edge between fail and replacing no shows or people who reject the offer

I'm convinced that I'll also get a NO soon enough, because of previous flying experience (had almost completed PPL when applying, now complete). Out of curiosity, has anybody who has received a YES had any previous flying experience?
I'm very close to finishing my PPL and got a yes for the interview.

Just curious, did anyone get offered a date outside of the 23rd to the 27th?

I got called on the 2nd so only a day or two after people started popping up saying they had their call and the dates I was offered at the time were 24th-27th.

So my impression from this would be that it is only that particular week they are running assesments, especially keeping in mind that assesments are being done at a hotel. I suspect the dates on the website are the range in which the interview dates could have occured and not actually the entire assesment period.

I was called on the 2nd and my assessment date is the 19th. My surname starts with a W, and I'm from Scotland, if that helps.

In the same boat as you. It's an anxious wait isn't it!

Does anyone know if we get shortlisted after the group exercise for the interviews? Or is EVERYONE attending the assessment having an interview? It rings a bell that in previous years people got shortlisted after the group exercise.

how do you wear up

This is the first time I take part on such an assessment.
I am wondering about how I should dress up… will I be underdressed in some white shirt and black trousers? And how about colors?

Thanks for any tips or experiences!

Good luck to all those with Interviews. Make the most of it!

I'm trying to mentally check out now, just don't see how those of us who haven't heard anything have much of a chance now given the set dates of assessment weeks

Still in the no email no call camp. Just sent an email asking for a follow up and lets see what they have so say. Perhaps my rejection email might be on the way

Last time round they shortlisted people from the group. So in the morning you had the group stuff, then if you met what they were after they kept you for the afternoon. If not then you were sent home after lunch. They arrived after lunch and called out a list of names who had to follow one staff member and the ones not called remained in the canteen/kitchen. This was how they split the ones who passed the morning and ones who didn't, the individual groups were then told together whether they were the successful or unsuccessful ones.

That's perfect, thank you so much for that.

Hi Mr anonymous

I don't have any experience these particular (Aer lingus) assessments but the guy who is underdressed always sticks out more than guy who is overdressed.
Safest way to play is a slacks and mild coloured shirt and tie, nothing too standing out, and a casual jacket. Then if everyone is in full suits then you just look too warm to wear a jacket. And if you are overdressed go to the bathroom lose the tie and open the collar and problem solved.

Personally that's how I do it if unsure,
but in this case I would go shirt slacks tie and jacket because the role you are going for you end up in a formal uniform so dress the part.

Best of luck to everyone in the upcoming interviews,

Being a cadet programme do you think they will get technical in the interviews at this stage ?

Some rumour on Boards.ie that Aer Lingus are looking at taking on 40 cadets, but not all at the same time due to class size restrictions at Jerez. Might go some way to explaining the lack of response to most applications

A large number certainly makes sense given they appear to have a major pilot shortage, and more aircraft coming soon
