Zenon Recruitment agency were looking for 737 Classic crews: is that for Jet 2 as well? Has anyone got any gen on this deal?

I haven't been following this thread since the beginning...could someone tell me if they're hiring non type-rated first officers with low time experience? I applied online quite a while back but haven't heard of anything since...

I'm sure Jet2 are desperate for that profile. As, of course, are all airlines.

It's a very tough industry right now, but even at the best of times, a combination such as yours will need serious luck. Not just enquiries.

Sorry to be the early Xmas grinch.

A small number of low time non type-rated have been taken on, as you might imagine the list of applicants for those spots was a very long one.

Jet2 recruited 12 low houred inexperienced non TR guys and girls who are now all undergoing there TR training. There are real difficulties in line training inexperienced guys, each requires 44 sectors each ie 528 sectors for just 12 people. For a still smallish airline over the quiet winter period this is hard as they also have to keep their present crew employed and current. I don't think they will be recruiting any more "cadets" real soon. Its only an opinion and not based on any facts, things also change very quickly in the airline industry.

As an aside you said
I haven't been following this thread since the beginning
If you are keen to work for a particular company you should do all the research on it you can. That might involve reading the whole thread. Who knows you might pick up some top tips or useful information.

Regards

Does anyone have an email address or telephone number to jet2 to help address technical difficulties with the online application.

or can anyone help with the below

On behalf of a friend of mine who is not an IT expert. He half completed the direct entry experienced FO 757 application some time ago but did not submit it as a formal application. Having seen the advert in the back of flight last week he decided to log back in and submit his details. However, the system says his application has expired and should reapply. When he tries to re-register, the system says that his details already exist and cannot re-register, (if that makes sense). So he just goes round in circles. The jet2 application does not have a technical assistance link that i can see.

Any advice or a contact email welcome.

Get him to try and register again but using a different email address. Jet2 have had some serious IT issues with their application system, so much so that they had to delete several hundred previous applications.

TL Bird: quite correct, and of course, Titan Airways, although both those airlines have the classic in small numbers whereas BMI Baby and Jet Two have them in larger numbers.

JB007: thanks.

Thanks Hawkerflyer.

I should have been clearer - I was wondering if there is any bond for those 737 type rated captains who are being offered a summer only contract.

Shaman,

Are jet2 offering summer only contracts? I was told at the interview that it would either be 70% or 100% (the latter being unlikely) but with the two year bond. Aren't the six month contracts through zenon?

I expect they will try to argue that the costs are the same at the start of a six month contract so it will be 4.5k over six months. That's just a guess though.

Some details from Zenon.

Starts in April and May for Manchester and Leeds bases. The contract runs until October. There is possibility of being offered permanent employment on completion of the contract. FO salary 2977 per month with a loyalty bonus on completion of the whole contract of 340 per month. Duty pay at 2.10 per hour (but I'm not sure if that's flying hour or duty hour).

5 weeks

Still no response from Leeds.

Anybody any indication as to whether they have been taking primarily non-TR or TR?

Oh well.

Just finished the online tests.

Personality profile _ Just answer truthfully I guess.
Verbal reasoning _ Just answer the questions after reading carefully.

Numerical reasoning _ Nightmare.

As if it wasn't bad enough, the telephone ringing three times during the test......................

The numerical questions I felt were overly complicated and required you to understand what was being represented on the charts. Quite frankly, I didn't understand what they were asking me! I have no idea what "Asset value per share" relates to. As for Car engine sizes expressing fuel tank quantity in litres in this instance, even though it's listed in gallons.......... Gibberish.

I have spent 15 years calculating fuel quantities and interpolating performance charts and graphs and have never had a problem. Passed my 737 tech course with a 100% pass. Have spent the previous 20 years performing electronics calculations without so much as breaking a sweat.

However..... ask me about asset values and shares and sorry...
IMHO the tests were not relevant as you can hardly answer the question if you don't understand what you are being asked. I completed the practice test without trouble (on several sites) but the real SHL test bore no resemblance.

Oh well. After a good assessment, best plan for a quiet Christmas and a lean new year.

Who else is recruiting????.........

Cheers.

Hawkerflyer,
Are jet2 offering summer only contracts?
Sorry, I don't know. I have not been contacted by Jet2 but was adding two and two together and getting.......5! I had noticed that Zenon was advertising and I presumed that meant that Jet2 had not been able to attract sufficient type rated captains and would be offering summer contracts to interested parties.

Firestorm,

Some details from Zenon.
Was a bond mentioned to you as a contract pilot?

No bond was mentioned to me.

Must say though, I didn't ask.

I've read somewhere that there is a bond for line training or similar. Don't know whether this applies to contract pilots though.

Regards.
