I applied a month ago for low hour non TR and application was still open, I don't know now. I only received the confirmation e-mail but it doesn't say that they will contact you if your application is unsuccessful but only should it result successful so we might never get any answer.
Cheers

When I applied the application process was still available for non type rated with low hours but probably they have already covered all positions at that moment. Thanks for the info by the way.
Cheers

The apps of no-rated took them by storm, recruitment likely to continue into 2012 and even some no-TR selected guys have been put on hold till internal decisions are made. The not selected will receive some kind of "No thanks but no". Words & music from HR dept. Do not shoot the messenger...

*sigh*

I guess the saying 'no news is good news' really doesn't apply when hunting for a flying job

Still waiting to hear as well. They didn't give any indication of when they'd let us know, just that they would either way, so I guess just a waiting game.

Can anyone who has been through the J2 selection this year briefly cover what is involved in the compass tests...

I already have the Cockpit web software which adequately covers preperation for the BA DEP capacity tests. Is compass testing similar?

Also, I heard there is a technical exam for TR guys. If true, what does it cover... type specific systems, perfomance or ATPL type stuff? Thanks.

Sector pay FO

Could anyone give an approx figure per annum of the sector pay you would earn as a TR experienced FO please?

Am i correct in thinking a TR / Experienced FO receives in the region of 43k rising to 45k in April 2012? Do you receive this whilst line training?

Thanks in advance

You are correct on the salary front. 50% salary until final line check.

Yes, COMPASS testing is part of assessment now. Caught us by surprise as we only found out when we arrived there....

Hand eye coordination, memory, orientation, maths, basic physics, a few ATPL questions.

Devil Compass Test

Yes compass test takes up most of the day, Forget how well the interview goes if you dont pass the compass test you dont go through regardless of experience.
