Hi guys,
Some great info on here! Just have some quick questions: (which may be easier for those who applied last year to answer):

1. Is the 1st part (personality questionnaire) timed?
2. Are the interview q's HR based (eg: why do you want this job?) or are they more technical?
3. Will I need a Joyce stick to complete the assessments?
4. Is there a physics exam I must study for?
5. Can I open up part 2 just to have a look or will the clock start?

Thanks!

Good luck

Hi all, 3rd time applying. In late 20s. Best I have done is interview stage where I did really bad in the interview as I panicked. In my experience, I wouldnít waste time or money on different e cut tests prior to completing for aer lingus. I found the tests to be quite straight forward and somewhat un-foolable.....

Good luck to all. I would imagine it will be mid August by the time the invites for interviews are sent out.

My understanding is that you can open each test part and read the instructions and as long as you donít start the actual assessment you are okay. I havenít tested this though

Newbie

Applied this year.

Got email yesterday & going to complete assessments this evening.

Have spent the morning reading last years thread & related threads on boards.

The sense of want & help from this community is amazing.

I've wanted to be a pilot all my life & now at 30 I'm taking a stab at trying with EI. I studied Transport in DIT and have worked with international Freight forwarders most of my 20s.

Here hoping for some luck. Best of luck to all regardless of the results

Hi all, just completed the online testing as this morning was the only chance I would get prior to closing time next Wednesday. I have completed all tests except the video interview - I want to give that a bit more thought and prep until I complete next week.

For the sake of fairness, I will not be replying to PM's. As mentioned above, this is my third time applying and have completed the tests each year.

The first part is a personality questionnaire (un-timed). You are given a statement and you rate how this compares with your thoughts. There are 240 statements and this takes approx 20 minutes. Its not hard nor do I believe you can do any prep for it. Do not try and fool the test as you will find that similar questions are then asked in round-about ways, so you will get caught out!

Part 2 is the online testing. There is a mix of subjects (maths, verbal reasoning, multi tasking, logic solving, reaction times etc). Each test is quite brief and they can be done individually . ie. not in one sitting. However, once you start a test, it must be completed. All tests take approx 90 mins and it is quite mentally draining. The last part is the video interview which, as I said, I haven't done yet.

Good luck to all of you!

@Rezh12, what type of question did they ask you in the questionnaire?

Did you complete the second section yet? Maybe you can let us all know what we have to expect! How was the video interview?

Online interview questions

Good afternoon all.


Iím another lucky one who has made it to the online tests and interview..

I got to this stage last year, but canít really remember the interview questions. Can anyone remember them? I know thereís a almost definite chance that they will be different this year, but Iíd like to try and recall them...

I think the interview is what let me down last year. Itís pretty weird sitting there watching yourself talk!

Good luck all!

Respectfully, I don't think it would be fair on anyone to divulge the interview questions for this or previous assesments. I'm in a similar position as yourself but on the basis that the interview questions may or may not be the same this year knowing previous questions would be unfair unless you also sat those assemesnts, which is part of the gig. My only advice would be to make note of the questions you receive this time both for either if you make it to psy interviews as you will be referred back to your answers to these questions, or if you decide to apply again next year.

There is an option to turn off the display of your video recording during the interview (doesn't affect the recording and submission of said recording).

So if you want to boost the chances i suggest you list yourself as female, if someone asks anything say you identify as female.

Hi,

Can you use a calculator for the maths questions?
How are each test timed? Is it possible to take time and do it slowly or are under strictly timed?
