Seeing as just about every FO in Thomson has the hours for command, it would seem to make sense to recruit mainly low hours guys, to establish a more balanced hours demographic within the FO community - I'm sure the fact that they will be able to pay them less is just the icing on the cake

I only know one guy who has been invited for interview, and he has about 800 hours 737-800.

A number of my colleagues are interviewing with Thomson. They all have over 3000 hours 737-800 time.

I would say the majority of guys going for interviews are quite experienced operators from FR, BABY, Jet2 and probably a few coming back from the desert.

They will also be interviewing their existing CTC Cadets that are flying with them at the moment for permanent contracts in December I believe.

Anyone know if many of the redundant pilots from 2010 have applied and been invited for interview?

i guess everyone who got invited was in the dark concerning what was to be offered for the assessment day.

I guess this is fair and everyone can be assessed fairly..

There isnt much info in here either,,, maybe the lucky few had a gagging order?

Anyone else heard anything?

I'm guessing an email will be the bad news and a phone call the good news?

Maybe they'll do a BA and cancel all recruitment at the last minute.

Here is hoping not and that you all get good news.

I got the 'yes' email last week and have my start date and base. I know of others that also have and some that have had a 'no'.

Good Luck!
