Yes I am in the same situation as you mini-jumbo. I passed the assessment and received the same email you did, it was a tad confusing so I called them to clarify. Basically all of the successful candidates are now with the fleet/base captains who will decide how many people they need in each base and try and match us up to our base requests. I'm hopeful we will hear something by the end of this week?!

Does anyone have any idea how many crew J2 are looking for in 2012. Seems to be lots of assessment days recently. Anybody got an offer yet.

Just wondering, did anyone with turbo prop experience but no jet time get a positive response to their application?

Going for interview next Tuesday (13th). Email says:

The format of the day will include: Introduction Meeting, Aptitude Testing, One to One Interview, Paperwork and a Group Exercise. We anticipate the day to finish by 4:00PM and will be providing teas, coffees and lunch for your convenience.

Few questions then please. Is this 'aptitude testing' the COMPASS testing? What is the interview likely to be? Technical or otherwise? I'm guessing just 'Why do you want to work for Jet2' etc...

With those levels of experience you guys must be incredibly frustrated at not getting even a simple reply - I know I would be!!

I know the computer system is far from perfect, and the HR are overworked; I really think that your applications could potentially have been missed/overlooked - why not give them a call if you are still interested?

Sorry to bang on about the online system again as I know it has been covered. My situation is that I applied 2 years ago for the non-type rated position. And now with a few years experience on the B737 I would like to apply again. Somehow my original application is still on there and can't be deleted, hence it won't let me apply again! Tried re-registering with a different email address, but receive an error message that the page has not been found.

Anyone else still unable to apply online due to error messages? Sent an email to the HR department so will see what they say....

Yes me.
I tried re submitting my application but it won't let me. I'm type rated on the 737.

Considering jobs outside aviation now I hear you get Christmas and weekends off with non flying jobs!

Has anybody who attended J2 pilot assessment days in November or December, and passed, heard anything since?

We should be hearing something sometime soon so I was told. The delay due to fleet manager being on annual leave and also the holiday period.
