For the guys getting called for 777 slots. How long did you have to wait after submitting your app? And are you rated?

Length of time is in the hands of Allah. Can vary but more down to the pressures of the training machine. A few non rated guys being asked for interview on the 777 but there's still a few from the far east with ratings coming.
Now that Malev have gone belly up sadly there's lots of guys from there looking now.

Hello

Thinking about applying for the A320 FO position. How long would it take to upgrade onto the A330/340? I heard around 3 - 4 years.

Cheers

at the time being you might end up on 330 directly depending on your previous experience on 320 and hours,since the company is hiring some 320 rated guys on 330 directly
should you end up on 320,based on the actual rate,you might expect to move to 330 in a about one year
requirements to move transfer to 330 are 500 hrs in the company and 2 opc on 320
to move from 320/330 requirements are then 500 hrs on 330 and 2 330 opc,and of course in accordance with seniority

I am applying for the non rated 777 FO job as listed on the website. I have 4000 hrs TT mostly on 737s how competitive is that and are they still actively seeking people?
They are actively recruiting for the B777. As long your B737 time is on the NG, you are not a Captain and have the minimum requirements then you do have a chance.

Any problem if I'm a Captain ? I have 6000 hrs TT, mostly on b737, and 1000 of those as a cpt? I' ve aslo heard that they want just copilots on copilots jobs... I have a friend who applied ,with the same hours as me and they said NO... Anybody knows more on that? Thank's

The recruiter told me that EY does not hire captains to fill copilot vacancies. Evidently they had some problems with guys not adjusting well to being second in command.

EK-EY ban

Nearly man, the ban was 24 months from date of hiring a year ago,
It is now permanent. no more going from EY to EK, at least on the FO side.

Good guys are being missed because of these crazy recruitment restrictions ( No Capts, fixated on getting type rated etc etc)..time to wake up to the fact that everyone is heading elsewhere.
Get a more robust selection procedure in place before its too late!

Sandy I Agree

I cannot understand why Etihad continues these resrictive hiring criteria.They are passing up talented ppl like you and I by maintaining these policies.When will they get the hint and open it up for others like you and i who are qualified....Vman

Small minded people who obviously have no clue. By their logic, I suppose we can expect to see a vacancy posting for 787 RATED FIRST OFFICERS WITH 500 HOURS PIC

Any chance Etihad has hired FO's with less than 500 on type but surpasses all other minimums? I have about 200 on the B777 with a type.

hiring ban

Aviator 3200,

Yes I am sure. I've seen the email. Anyways, if you want to try, be my guest, I can only wish they allow you to make the move.
Good luck and let us know.

Aviator, well, things change out here as quick as the shifting sands. I only passed on what I saw at the time.
I have heard it has changed but no body knows for sure, as if you do try for EK I'm sure EY will know within about 2 minutes chum

Nobody knows for sure except the guys who were told: "sorry you did a good job at the selection, but EY doesnt want you to leave after 24 months from date of hiring".....
fast forward to 24 months from date of hiring: "sorry the ban is now permanent"
But as you say, these things change quickly

Nearly man and saviboy

I totally agree with you but a friend of mine.... recently passed EK screening and as soon as he will be ready to leave EY there will be no strings attached.Plus EK keeps your seat frozen for one year after having successfully passed the selection
That's my 2 cent

With DE coming to EK I think more will go up the road. Don't know if the Captains deal is better but for FOs it certainly will be even with the carrot of early commands at EY.
