First time posting. I got the email for the online assessment yesterday afternoon. I got about 220 hrs along with PBN and level 6 English. Does anyone know of any good practice sites to use as there are quite a few of them?

I saw this practice site: jobtestprep.co.uk/aer-lingus-assessment?p. I think it's OK but I'm not 100% sure.

First part: 1 test

Questionnaire of 241 questions about your behavior, your life style, how you interact with people and how they interact with you. No time limit, no wrong or right answers just be yourself, being as honest as possible.

Second part: 10 tests

Verbal Reasoning: you are given with different statements about a industry company and you have to say if the statement is true, false, or cannot say. 49 statements, in 12 minutes, of course nobody can complete all 49 in that time limit.

Applied Numeracy: You are given 4 sets of 5 questions divided by topic. First topic is Unit Conversion, second topic is Rules of Three with simple calculation if you know basic formulae of geometry and physics, third topic is Percentage Calculation where you have to calculate percentage, and I donít remember the fourth topic. You can use non programmable calculator, donít worry.

Spatial Orientation: Very nice one, didnít miss one I think. You have a gyro compass and an ADF pointer. The gyro is indicating your heading and the ADF is oriented on the north. You need to understand how the aircraft is oriented in respect to the station. Donít worry, the heading normally is N S W or E, in order to reflect the 4 choice buttons. Then you have 8 positions around the station and you have to press the one that reflects your position. I think 3 minutes time limit.

Situational Behavior: No time limit, no right or wrong answers. How do you behave in different situations. You must assign dots to the statements.

Work related behavior: No time limit, no right or wrong answer How do you behave in a working environment. Questions about teamwork. With these kind of questionnaire try to be as much as coherent you can be.

Multitasking: Three task to complete at the same time. 5 minutes time limit. You have different figures and if you see a triangle pointing left or right you must press on the left or right arrow respectively. In the meanwhile you have to say if the Mathematical equation Is correct or not and if the sequence of numbers below the equation has any repeating number or not.

Complex Control: Flying through a tunnel with increasing speed. Requires a good mouse and fluidity of the frame rate.

Reaction Time: you are given two figures changing every second. When both figures are the same you need to click. Didnít miss any actually, 5 minutes time limit.

Logical Reasoning: I think the most difficult one. You have columns and lines with different figures and you need to understand what is the missing figure in the grill. It is like a sudoku but with images.

Video Interview: 5 standard questions, you have one minute preparation time and 3 minutes recording, you can try the recording three times, not more. Questions were like difficult situations to cope, teamwork, priority of tasks.

hope to have been helpful guys!

Hi guys,
Thanks for the feedback.
I did the online assessment last year.
It was 40 sec preparing and 1min 30 recording.
Who can confirm it is 3 mins recording this year?

It would be interesting as well to share the questions we had during the video interview.
I remember from last year: why pilot? How do you cope with stress? Long term goal? how do you communicate?

Well done, Egidio, thanks a lot!

It's a cut-e test for the second part of the assessment, right? Would you suggest any site in particular to get prepared?

Mate I donít think this thread is for you. This recruitment is for experienced type rated or non type rated first officers with previous airline experience. You need to apply as a cadet and not direct entry

Cadet at Aer lingus is Ab initio, so you start from zero
I applied through the DEP page and I got the online assessment so I donít think I should apply as a Cadet

Previous experience is preferred but not required, I just came out from my ATO and they accepted my application. So Cadet is only for ab initio.

I see your point, but if you look at the application criteria for direct entry, it says previous Multi Crew experience or 500hr+, hence its called Direct Entry Recruitment

Well to be actually quite precise on that, it's under "desirable criteria" and not "essential criteria", thus these kind of profile still stand a chance.
However, realistically speaking, they'll probably have enough applicants with higher experience anyhow. We shall see.

Personally got multi crew experience, A320 TR with a couple hundred hours on type....
Reckon we'll hear back by the beginning of next month? Assessments in Dublin to start 2nd week of January

Yes it is. I donít know any website, I have just performed the tests without any preparation. I think itís the best thing to do.
