Is anyone else having problems saving data on the application website. Once 'confirmed' when I log back in later there is no record of some section's details being entered?
Really keen to apply..... any suggestions at all appreciated.
In addition are there any guidelines for applicants? For instance where is it written the number of references required, etc
Thanks for any responses.

Anybody know of the time to command on the A320 fleet? Currently a CPT on the A320 with 3000+ Airbus time looking at a step up.
Any info is a big help.

Cheers

Spiral, not sure anyone has done it yet, so might be hard to gauge. All command upgrades are on A330, so that new capatians aren't flying with the space cadets........................

EY are no longer advertising DEC positions on their recruitment page .
Do B777 FOs upgrade from RHS to LHS or on to the A320? What about the A330 crew? (Current rookie A320 Capt)

Cheers,

Whatever is said, careful if you are offered a job as a DEC, coz it will turn into an A320 captain seat, crappiest position in EY....
A340 F/o's make more money than any A320 captain, flying twice less or even less, with no headache .
On A320, be ready to be living like an owl most of your time...... Flying up to 90/95 hours, minimum rest, most flights leave at 0200 AM local time up to maximum duty, with exhausted F/O's as well.
No requested days OFF, hardly any lay over,

All the requests you may have will end up having the same answer :
Due to operational reasons, your request couldn't be granted.

Operational my as......, lack of proper planning, poor management it is

There is usually a meeting each month to determine the manning needs of each fleet. If there is an opportunity for upgrades then those positions are open to all qualified First Officers to apply for or not. There then follows a quite extensive selection process now. The upgrades could be on any fleet. If it means moving from Airbus to Boeing or vice versa then you will have to operate 300 hours in the right seat first.

Severelyjetlagged,

Thanks for the info, very helpful indeed! Does EY have a min. time of service + hours requirement as does EK (3 years) before being eligible for command? Or are there fast track options for previous type-rated Captains? Or is seniority the name of the game? Thanks in advance!

There is not such a thing yet, but should you join now, seniority will make you a skipper within the next 8 to 10 years ( 500 F/O's already with 4 upgrades a month, even when we were getting an aircraft a month , just do the maths 48 upgrades a year....)

I am in the holding pool for an FO slot with EY. As of today I believe that there are 4 of us left.

With any luck we'll be there by Feb....

Are many candidates being brought forward for assessment/interview at the moment? Just wondering, especially as the hold pool nearing empty.

Also heard on another forum that there were 100 people in the pool for EY at the moment. Any truth in that..

Chandler, I know at least 2 or 3 people in each the 320 classes being held in Spt, oct nov dec and jan. Nobody was offered a 330 position.
With all respect, I think you are misinformed.

Tell me how you can know Dec and Jan boys, without being from the recruitment in EY or management ???
You seem to know a lot about misinformation.
Why would you make it public as it would send such a negative signal to all A320 pilots and overall EY workforce....?
CCq's delayed for the EY inmates, and direct entry from people less qualified.... How can you justify that....?

Bad business practices based on low profile/experienced managers with questionnable and/or fake resumes, EY has, had ever had and will always have.

It's no big secret why undercover auditors are spreading in the corridors and why you can smell and feel fear in various office cubicles.....
The short term future gonna be interesting...really

"Tell me how you can know Dec and Jan boys, without being from the recruitment in EY or management ???"

I am one of the "Jan boys". Therefore I suppose I know at least one.
I also know the 3 other guys in the class.

"Why would you make it public as it would send such a negative signal to all A320 pilots and overall EY workforce....?
CCq's delayed for the EY inmates, and direct entry from people less qualified.... How can you justify that....?"

I never mentionned anything about CCq's and neither did you in your previous post.
you simply mentionned that the 320 new joiners were offered 330 positions and I answered that I dont believe it s the case as I know most of the 320 guys going through training right now.

I don t see how I sent a negative signal by just sharing a fact I know is true: none of my friends are in a 330 class
