55000 Euros into an online Irish tax calculator equates to 3100 Euros a month net. So 3300 Euros sounds reasonable including sector pay, albeit for a quietish month?

No news on the pay review yet. But one rumour I did hear is that the Irish Revenue are looking to tax sector pay in line with other tax authorities around Europe. This would make a big difference to a new FO as sector pay can make up a significant proportion of your earnings depending on how you bid and if you are inclined to do double sector days. Much in the same way that performance pay did when we got that.

Well I just finished the online tests and holy crap was the the verbal reasoning test hard Think I got to question 32/49

Good luck to everyone, but doubt I'll be getting the call if the tests make up much of your score

Re the tests

In the email I got it only asked if you could do the tests as soon as you could and you would only have 3days to complete them from when you registered. No mention of the 11th
Seeing as they were accepting applications till the 11th I'm sure not everyone will have completed them before the 11th

Today was my first access to a proper computer with a mouse since getting the email.

Syntax Error

Was that tongue in cheek? If not then what a load of . You could say those who applied straight away are desperate and will apply for anything. Personally I did my tests late pure and simply because of work. If Aer Lingus only wanted those that applied quickly then the application window would have been open for one day only.

No news.

Application date closed on July 11th.

What do we think?

Are EI really taking their time, pouring over all aspects of a candidate's application not just the aptitude tests results?
Or;
Have they already chosen a few people for further screening and the rest of us get silence.

Thoughts?

At least a couple of individuals received messages last week for meetings this week in Dublin for the next phase in the selection.

Wodka, sorry but your talking rubbish.

From the email sent on the 3rd Jul;
"We will be in contact with all applicants after the closing date regarding the next stage in the process"

Last I had heard was no one had been called forward yet. Standing by to be corrected....

Shamrock hiring

From the initial email...

Thank you for completing your online application form.

We would like to confirm that we have received your application for First Officer.

***Current Vacancies***

All applications for current vacancies will be screened to ensure they meet the requirements for the job.

Following the initial screening, the most suitable candidates will be invited to participate in the next stage of the recruitment process. If your application is successful at this stage, we will contact you within 4 weeks of the vacancy closing date.

If you have not heard from us within this time then we regret to inform you that you have been unsuccessful on this occasion. We are unable to provide individual feedback as to why your application has not been successful due to the volume of candidates applying to our vacancies.

All correspondence will be through e-mail and we strongly advise you to monitor your e-mail account.


So by that I assume if you have heard nothing by 8th August (+ 4 weeks) it's game over.

Indeed, but does that email not pre-date the invitations to online testing?

Possibly wishful thinking, but I'm assuming the fact that I received an invitation to complete the tests meant that I passed the "initial screening".
