Superced was representative of a small but vocal minority at easyJet who have hated every single company they have ever worked for. His recruitment by easyJet was an enormous error of judgement and I am absolutely delighted he has left to another company he will come to hate and despise too.

With the notable exception of the Berlin-based pilots, who have their own particular battle with the company that shows no signs of ending, you will find few pilots at easyJet these days who hate the company
Delightful stuff indeed, and NOT worthy of an internal forum bash.

Hello everyone,

Can somebody shed some light on the new terms and conditions for the flexicrew pilots. I heard somewhere that you will be offered a permanent contract after 18 months as a flexicrew. Also, does pay, hours per year flown, roster, pension and time to command vary dramatically between the different countries when permanent? I've found two different factfiles on ppjn(easyJet UK and easyJet spain). Where can I find more information regarding the different local contracts for france, italy and germany?

Many thanks

PS. Please feel free to send me a pm

There are no new Ts and Cs - they have been the same for 18 months now.

I heard somewhere that you will be offered a permanent contract after 18 months as a flexicrew.
A myth. Everyone who did a selection and applied for a base abroad i.e. not in the UK, and passed the interview (and there were several who didn't) and coincidentally had been with the company for 18 months has been offered a permanant job. The 18 month bit is more for effect - if it could have been 17 or 16 months then it would have been however not everyone in those timescales that has applied is on a permanant contract. There are VERY few that have been offered UK contracts. Many who have been are off to BA (though easy may not yet know) / have gone.

Also, does pay, hours per year flown, roster, pension and time to command
Forget about time to command until permanant. 99.9999999% of upgrades will be back to LGW so no variance in the pay. FlexiCrew in terms of the actual pay is based on UK basings. People may well be flying in european bases but not on hourly rates or not as their basing.

Where can I find more information regarding the different local contracts for france, italy and germany?
By flying for easyJet and looking on the intranet. That info is really on a need to know basis and you don't need to know because for the foreseeable, despite what some may hope, hypothesise or claim the only way in is through flexicrew.

Black and Brown not 100% true.

I believe the flexicrew guys out in France on the parc contract are on a fixed pattern roster and are getting an extra 10/block hour over the guys in the UK.

And regarding time to go permanent, the threshold to apply was 500 factored hours which a new cadet could easily get in 7-8 months.

True mainly European bases have been offered, but some UK bases have been offered and once in the 'system' you can put yourself on the waiting list and I know some of those who wished to come back to LGW have been offered a transfer back after spending only 6 months in their 'chosen' European base.

BlackandBrown, a couple of months ago, everyone that was flexicrew that had operated for easyJet for at least 18 months was offered a UK base on a permanent easyJet contract (unless they had already taken a permanent contract abroad of course).

A peculiar choice of words to say I am not 100% correct and then only offer what you believe ie not know. I am speaking with regards to ctc flexicrew when I speak. In the initial 8 months people have had an sxf basing because it isn't by the hour. Once on flexicrew people have taken temporary 2-3 month Basings in Paris for example with hotel accommodation provided, a fixed pattern roster and a guaranteed minimum hours.

The people who took Basings abroad and are heading back to the uk but there aren't many. Some who were special enough to get uk bases are heading abroad too so like lady gaga it goes both ways.

Epsilonvaz I know you aren't correct, the operative words in their schpeel were 'all that were suitable were offered Permanant contracts' . And the 18 months bit was the lowest number they could use to make the sell - it doesnt mean anything. I am not one of them as I took an abroad base but I can right the second think of 20 who still dont have a permanent job. I am not bitching about it, I'm just giving the facts.

Hi guys. Any idea when easyjet will start recruiting again? Things seem to be pointing towards September time however unsure how reliable my sources are. Just wondering if anybody had any more reliable information in regards to dates and pilots required, etc. Thankyou.
