Good on you, Mentat. Regarding your query on the other thread, you're pretty much good to go to collect your roll number before 25th January. I don't think Mahantesh would send out anymore emails to those candidates who have acknowledged.

The level of professionalism is very clear from the way these guys at spice have handled the recruitment so far and the appalling grammar used by a senior HR, sometimes it makes me think that these guys are no better than the babus sitting in the DGCA, only difference being the number of air conditioners running in their offices.

You are forgetting the pan stains and the chai ka cups at the DGCA!

Talk about their level of professionalism - last I heard, recruitment in SG comprises of only two stages. Written exam and interview. No Simulator assessment, psychometric test?

Was it 20 thousand before ? I wonder where the 25 thousand is going if they aren't conducting any Psychometry or Simulator test.

Yes, the fee was 20,000 in the previous attempt. This time around it is 25000 and I assume nearly hundred candidates have been called for the exam. I wouldn't bother doing the math. But I'm sure it covers a month's pay for 20 odd Trainee First Officers.

These companies have a 'take it or leave it' attitude. I wish we could file an RTI for money asked but unfortunately Pvt companies don't come under the purview of RTI.

IF only we all could get together and make it a point not to go for this company who is a complete fraud. Everyone knows how the exams are conducted and who eventually gets in. I knew too, still I gave the exam thinking I may get lucky.

Common sense prevails.

Good luck to everyone

75000 for the Simulator check???

I have my doubts whether they still conduct it.

beinghuman - In these desperate times, low-time pilots will simply 'take it', whatever comes their way. At the end of the day, we succumb to it. Nepotism exists in every other organization and has a strong presence felt in the aviation industry all over the world. To fight it out is a big task and I reckon only a handful will be up for it. The only way out of this frustration is to keep working hard and when the time comes, persistence will prevail.

@tolip111111, i'm sure 10% of the pilots may get in due to merit.
whats the harm in trying for a place in that 10%! i say so because there does not seem any compay recruiting this year apart ofcourse from the cae, but to be called for their exam is another fate of luck!

something better than nothing isn't it? correct me if i'm wrong,i'd love to be wrong

on that note good luck to all guys giving the exam.

bayblade - I couldn't agree with you more. Jet Airways is packed to the rafters for the next one year, Air India and Kingfisher are in the dumps, IndiGo is all about that one lucky call in the near future and Go Air looks to be maintaining a low profile in terms of recruitment for non-type rated CPL holders. For now and according to one of the members on PPRuNe, this could be the last recruitment drive for Spice Jet till 2013.

Yes, a few are recruited on merit basis. The rest is the same old story known to many. Anyway, good luck to all the pilots (who don't belong to the influential lot) appearing for the Spice Jet exam. It would be very kind of you guys to post some of the questions on this thread after the 31st of January.
