I think they are only having 1 x 737NG based at EMA from April so your chances may be slim in getting EMA as a base. I know one Capt who has been with Jet2 for 2 years and is only getting EMA in April, i think there are others on the waiting list too. I do not work for Jet2 so i could be wrong, sure others on here will advise.

Not sure i'd leave Easy LHS though for Jet2 but appreciate being away from home must be hard week in week out. I am presuming you are on the Bus as well.

Cheers

All fully crewed at EMA for this summer but, depending on what happens to baby, next summer will almost certainly see more aircraft.

We were told that initial transfers to EMA were to be done on seniority (one FO with less than a year with the company got the base), but all subsequent transfers would be done on order of date of request.

Hi all, what are the typical roster patterns at the mo at jet2? Days on/off, roster period etc..
also can anyone let me know what it's like to work here currently, general mood of the team, stability and such like.
Cheers

yenab,

There is no real roster pattern, really... It's quiet in the winter (think I did 3 flights in Jan), the summer is a lot busier. It's rare to get single days off, so there are blocks of work. Up to 6 days in a row during the summer, although that is quite rare.

General mood is quite good from where I see it. Not a massive company, when you've got a question you get an answer. It's a team spirit, there's people to take safely from A to B, everyone's goal seems to be to make that happen (and on time, of course...).

Is that useful info?

MD11MAN,

Im hoping to join you guys in 2012 (passed selection and paddling in the hold pool still), I noticed a Jet2 aircraft parked up in Southend and I read bits here and there about doing the Ford contract run...just wondered if you apply internally for stuff like that or does management just approach certain crews?

You just get rostered these things/trips. Sometimes you're lucky, sometimes you're not. It's always an option to ask things, but it is an airline run by people - I'm sure you'd agree you shouldn't ask for a detailed roster day by day, if you know what I mean?

Hope to see you soon! Have you been assigned to a base yet, or is it just in the pool?

Thanks for that info MD11MAN, yeh I know what you mean I picked up the people vibe from the selection process to and it seems a great place to be. No I haven't been given a base yet , just in the pool. I'm really hoping I'm lucky enough to get a start for the summer....Fingers crossed!

Im sure we will cross paths if I do, I also meant to ask when the winter months are quiet do you constantly end up on standby or do you get a lot of free days off?...just curious

My experience (same fleet) from this winter is that there are quite a few standby's - also, where possible, training seems to be done in the winter.

But there are more days off in the winter, definitely. The summer is when it goes quite a bit busier.

Just seen my March roster, seems new people are still joining then/now, so hope for you you'll get a spot!

Keep me up to date, curious as well!

okay I see....thats great you can see new people fitting into the roster...always a good sign! I'm hoping then that newbies will also appear on the April roster to, because then I feel I might just get a spot somewhere on the network. I appreciate you guys got swamped by applications so I'm not really sure how far down the list I am of the chaps that got through...hopefully somewhere near the top by now! would make my year anyway!

I will drop you a post if I get a ring/email, thanks for your help

Does anyone know if it was common for people to apply to Jet2 and simply never hear anything back from them? I've not had any form of contact other than the initial e-mail saying my application was being processed and that was months ago.

Hi Fly26!
Also swimming in the 737's pool, BUT... I'm a good swimmer!
I just hope this holding pool does really mean something.

No idea. To be honest i'm not so optimistic.
I don't think i would hear of anything for this summer season.
Since i have been told that my application was put on hold, i didn't get any further info.

I passed the selection via zenon.
What about you? Did you get any further details?

I just hope that this waiting list is real...

yeh I got the same email by the sound of things, Im through Zenon as well, passed in the batch just before christmas. Its not the first time ive heard the 'not this summer' thought...which is kinda worrying, it would be a shame for it to fall through after all the effort..we should hear something soon we are already getting into the last week of Feb!

@olicana it would appear so, I've heard nothing since putting my application in towards the end of last summer. I contacted them in october and they were still processing the application apparently. Still heard nothing.

Here's my Jet2 recruitment story. I have thousands of hours, type rated on the 757 and haven't heard a peep. Heard from other people that their recruitment process is a bit on the disorganized side. I am now in a position to fully agree. Oh well, would of liked to have joined but I guess I'll keep on looking.....
