I've been offered 737 out of glasgow, starting in Feb.
Are you TR already or ex-mil? Same age bracket but no type/hrs so no joy...

I'm neither. 5000hr non TR TP Captain.

Turns out I need to go for a sim assessment, which all non TR people have to do. They didn't tell me that on the phone when I was offered it!

New start date is 16 Jan, subject to a satisfactory sim.

Applied a month ago, 4000hrs, 2500 jet, heard nothing. A colleague applied same day 1000 hrs less experience (total time and jet), same age, he got a call within 24 hrs, interviewed 2 weeks ago..!

Where's the logic.??

punk/Captmav,

Nope, still waiting as well, 3500 TT with 3000 on 737. Makes me worry because I see lots of people on here talking of assessments and I haven't had a sniff!

Why is it some people are confused when their mates apply the, "same day 1000 hrs less experience (total time and jet), same age, he got a call within 24 hrs, interviewed 2 weeks ago..!"

Do you ever consider that he too met the minimum hours, and simply completed a better application then you did?

Why when this happens, do people presume that if their mate got an interview, then having more hours then them means you should have got one!

Sorry, but I guess that's not the case!

Its not that I expect my hours to have got me an interview when other people with fewer hours have got interviews, but that with all the tales of Jet2 HR department letting people down by 'losing' their applications or not receiving applications that I start to wonder if anyone read my application. If they had read it and didn't like it wouldn't they say thanks but no thanks?

Unfortunately I can't offer a reasonable explanation. As with most things aviation recruitment related, there is often no logic, just luck. Perhaps they're too busy to say thanks but no thanks, and they only have time to deal with successful applications. Again, I'm sorry to say, but thinking that they haven't read your application as to a reason why you haven't heard back, is most probably wishful thinking. If it happens to me, I tend to 'get the message!'

I learned yesterday that one lad that got into BA (where I didn't) is the worst, most arrogant pilot we had. Not to mention always in trouble with the law, and yet BA wanted him over me. So good at bull$hitting, even BA couldn't see through it.....way of the world!

Chin up!

With all due respect...the only "room for improvement" in THAT application COULD (?) be the "Why do you want to work for us?"-section, don't you agree? Once you are a >20t-rated guy with some 1000hrs on type (doesn't have to be a B73...), etc,etc frankly I think that is a very naive question. Everything else, such as putting PIC, on-type, sim-hrs down and getting the right line on the drop-down menu isn't rocket science, is it?

To clear any doubt regarding the IT-snags, when the public concern was at its apex, I emailed the right man. He replied that MY application was received loud & clear and they were working hard to fix the problem. A follow-up call some weeks later confirmed also they would eventually have notified the UNSUCCESSFUL ones. Having not received any "no thanks, but no" reply I would like to think I am still in the limbo but, because I have applied months ago, I'd rather agree with you that I have to "get the message". Shame but...

The good news is the recruitment drive will continue well into 2012, apparently.

Best wishes to the lucky one.

MM,

Colleague of mine, captain, very competent driver (>1,000h multi) with good CV and social skills had had to hang about three damn long years before he eventually got his first airline interview...

Please understand EVERY operator anywhere in the world is being inundated once word hit the street they are looking. And even without people knowing CVs keep flooding through the mailbox. A numbers game. Appreciate the game. Play the game.

Keep trying!

Burger81 - did you get called to a selection day or was this the first you heard since applying?

I only ask as I understand that all cadet positions were filled a month or so ago...

EK4457,

No i hadn't received anything prior to now. I also heard that the cadet positions were filled a month or so ago, but had also heard that there would possibly be more hiring early 2012. Originally I was told by the recruiting captain that there was 16 positions available, but through the graevine heard that only 12 were taken on, leaving the door open for early 2012. My PFO states:

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your application for First Officer (Low Hours) received in our 2011/2012 recruitment season.


Unfortunately, on this occasion, you have not been selected for assessment and we will not be progressing your application further from this point."

I take from this, that even if there is more recruitment early in 2012, I will not be considered for it

Sorry to hear that.

I would certainly have another crack if it reopens in 2012... I can't see anything in the email which precludes you.

Out of interest, did you have a 16 hour JOC?

Yeah I will cartainly have another go in 2012 if i am given the option to re-apply.
I did the CRM Aviation JOC & MCC. 20hrs MCC 8hrs JOC. I was advised that this was fine last year prior to completing the course, so am obviously a bit now to find out this probably isn't sufficient. As there is apparently no set syllabus for a JOC, I found it a bit of a waste really as the MCC had already covered most things we did in the extra 8hours.

Its a 6 month wait before you can re-apply again. Has any TR FO's heard anything yet?

Hi Punk,

Where did you get the 6 month wait requirement from?
