DHL/EAT Assessment in Hamburg

Hello everyone, I've been reading for a while and haven't been able to find much information about this so I decided to start a thread.

I applied in February for the DHL European Air transport in Leipzig for A300/757 FO
After getting 2 identical emails saying that my application will son be reviewed by their team and thanking me for my patience I got an invitation for an assessment.
First I got an email telling me to call or email to arrange the date of the assessment.
After calling, with no response, decided to email and the following they they got in touch with me with a call.
I was asked what day I will like to attend between 2, options 15th and 16th of May. Chose 15th.
I was also explained a little bit how the assessment works, and then asked if I was type rated, which I'm not.
The assessment consists of a "Basic Qualification" and if you pass will be invited to a different "Corporate Qualification"
- Aptitude Testing: maths, English, ATPL
-FNPT screening. This is for people without TR and it is on the same day. For TR pilots will be full flight sim on the day of the Corporate Qualification

Also after the Aptitude Testing you will be told if you pass to the FNPT or not.
There's also a link to practice and familiarise with the testing system DHL test center which I haven't got time to check yet.

Anyone has recently done any assessment and can throw some info?
Also for people that got the job, what are the salaries like and the rosters? Is your contract with DHL or EAT? What routes will you do in the beginning?

I've seen quite some info on DHL UK but not much on EAT

Thank you in advance for your help and good luck to everyone applying !

May I know your experience? I received an email asking if I am still interested (applied before the end 2017) approximately two weeks ago.

Here's a pretty recent recap of someone: EAT-DHL interview...

Thank you P40Warhawk, I've been offered a job with Ryanair, and considering some long term aspects I've decided to not go to DHL assessment, thank you for offering your help regardless.

No problem .

Congratz with the Job in Ryan Air. You got accepted for the APC or how is it called? Sort of sponsorship?

Long term 737 is maybe the best choice career wise. EAT is also good but building hrs will be done a lot more in Ryan Air. I am happy for you.

The 737 is an awesome aircraft. Enjoy it. Good luck in the TR.

@porcellino

I'm still waiting for a positive answer for assessment. Nevertheless, I'm trying to prepare myself as much as possible, therefore I bought today the BQ Skytest software (german only). I also have DLR package from LHitalia.

Did you train on the same one on BQ software? How much time before? How many h's/day?

On the BQ software there's loads of tests, which one are the main ones for the tests?

Thank you in advance.

Thank you P40, I was considering hours on 737 and quick way to command too. It is the sponsored TR, didnīt know there was a special name for it. Pretty much we (cadets) pay 5000 for initial training, get paid on a fixed term contract after type rating training, and get permanent junior FO after safety pilot release. Bonded for 5 years, if you leave earlier you pay 5000 penalty for every year that you break the contract.

Revat, I did not prepare for the assessment as I rejected the offer early after they invited me so they could give the opportunity to somebody else. Sorry I canīt help you with that.

Hi, to give an short update to those called for a BQ with DHL,
For non TR it is slightly different from other Interpersonal screening.
The BQ is at the same time : psychometric tests (Really doable, nothing to do with DLR) and Sim screening on the same day.
Be sure to have a good ATPL knowledge when you go for it. It is probably the only test where it is not possible to have a bad result averaged with another better one.
The SIM : like for other Interpersonal screening : 45 min check ride in a PA34 simulator, the main focus is on basic instrument flying and to be able to have a good instruments scan.
You get immediate results and feedback.

I suggest you to train on skytest BQ, level 1 or 2.
And also to do some PC simulator session with whatever non glass cockpit aircraft.
You can train to quickly figure out the holding entry and wind correction with an app called "VOR Tracked" (there are plenty of them but I used that one)
Sleep well the night before !

Then if it is positive, you are called to go for a corporate qualification in Berlin.
Do you have any information about this part ? What to expect ?

Do you have a rough idea of how many pilots are needed at the moment ? Just to get an idea.
Thanks and good luck !

Hey everyone,
Would like to inquire more about EAT. I hold (non current) 757/67 TR and thinking about applying.
However can't find any reasonably up-to-date info on contract conditions. Would anyone be so kind and shed some light regarding pay/vacation days/ ect?
I know that you are meant to apply on specific fleet through career.aero website, but how bonding is that from the employer's side? With A330 fleet expanding are those mostly internal upgrades or are they open to hire from outside with no TR?
While german does not seem to be a hard requirement, how much of a factor is it?

Thanks in advance!

I think you need to apply to DHL Air UK if you want to fly the 757/767. If you go on PPJN you will find an email you can send your CV to.

Hey,
I don't have a specific fleet preference, was just wondering how EAT handles it on their side. I assume they pay for the potential type ratings anyway and do not bond new hires.

Are those fixed roster patterns available upon joining or after some time in the company?

One of the conditions is having EU citizenship or a German work permit. For British citizens, can you apply for a permit post application stage?

I can't post links, but this might (not) help:

Pursuant to the German Residence Act (Section 39), consent for the issuing of a residence title
for employment may strictly only be granted if:
- the foreigner's employment would not result in any negative effects on the labour market;
- no German workers, nationals of EU/EEA countries or Switzerland, or foreigners considered as legally equivalent to German workers with regard to taking up employment are available for the employment (priority check),
- the foreigners are not employed with worse working conditions than comparable German workers.
The local Employment Agency carries out the priority check. It checks whether preferential applicants are available on the regional and wider (EU/EEA) labour market and that the conditions of employment offered to the foreign workers are not worse than those of comparable employees. To this end, a detailed job advertisement must be submitted to the Employment Agency in good time, in particular providing information on the intended conditions of employment.
The question as to whether a vacant position can be filled with a foreign worker should usually be clarified within two weeks. This time frame assumes that the employer has already supplied all necessary information.

Bluntly, why would they even bother with a Britís application now? There are 1000s of suitably qualified German speaking EU citizens for the company to fill the spaces hassle free many times over. They will have no potential Visa delays, restrictions concerning being based in another EU county etc.

PS: Iím British so this isnít a dig, I just canít see why a company would bother. If it was a research position or leadership position where the individual can make a quantifiable difference then thatís a different story. However, pilots all have the same license and as long as they meet a basic standard there is little to differentiate one from another.
