What kind of clothes were you wearing when you did the Video Interview? I'm guessing it doesn't have to be suit and tie etc.

Probably not but on the other hand it wonít harm your chances. It is still a chance to appear professional.

Does the second part go straight into the video interview after the tests or is there a gap for a break?

all the tests are in their own parts so you can select it whenever you want and if you wanted to, possibly even first which may not be a bad idea as the other tests may give you a little bit of a stressful time as tests normally do

Having done several of these video interviews before (mostly for engineering companies, admittedly), I'd advise you to dress as if you were going for a face-to-face interview.

Does anyone know if the video interviews can only be done at specific times or if they are just recorded? Its just that I cant imagine there`ll be someone to do the interview late in the evening when I`m available.
Thanks

Just finished mine. If people are worrying about the video stage then I think you can turn the camera off when doing it (as in you won't see yourself But the webcam will still record) there's a button at the bottom of the page, this might put you at a bit more ease. Looking back at myself in the camera was a scary sight 😆 lol Try not to get flustered if you get a question wrong and try and enjoy the experience. This is my first assessment but i actually really enjoyed the interactive tests. Oh and like someone mentioned earlier in the thread, don't leave it till last minute as this is a cracking opportunity and it would be horrible for someone to miss out due to the site crashing etc.
Good luck everyone 😊

Is the mouse scroll wheel required for any of the tests? Mine's not working so thought I should double check first!

This is my first pilot interview.. is anyone able to tell me if the interview involves questions related to aviation or if their personal based questions to let them know you more?

Also for the maths questions - Do they record you during these assessments and will I need some paper beside me?

Can you shed any light as to whether the video interview involves competency based questions (can you think of a time when..., give an example of when...)?

I dont want to know what it asks just to what extent I need to prepare for the video interview.

Also, I have a MacBook and only have access to a trackpad, will I be at a disadvantage?

Four questions in the video interview, I would just say prep like you prep for any other interview so would have some competency questions up your sleeve.

A trackpad would make it harder for one of the exercises in my opinion, but the rest should be fine
