Just completed the assessment. Straight forward I would say apart from the verbal reasoning which is really time critical.

5000 hours TT. B757/767/737 and on command shortlist with current company.

Completed the tests today, nothing too tricky. Even if I'm selected I won't agree to pay for my own rating. I hope everyone else follows suit.

Non type rated easyjet recruitment?

I haven't done the test yet, I haven't been able to put aside the time just yet (work, kids and redecorating the house). Just out of interest how long does the whole process take.

I'm the same as Guy. I won't (can't afford to) pay for my own rating.

2 hours to be comfortable.

Incidentally, anybody else had a problem where after completing a test, your results failed to transfer to their server? One of my test results did, and it gave me the opportunity to copy and paste from a text box and send them manually.

What on earth was the point of applying then?
John smith, the package has not been communicated from an official course within EZY yet. So far there has only been some speculation about the package on the table.

It is to risky to not apply as it doesnt happen every day that they open the recruitment to non type-rated pilots ...

Did you indicate in the initial application that you would NOT be willing to self fund a rating, yet still get that invitation for online selection?

What on earth is the point of agreeing to pay for the rating except to continue the ongoing emasculation of pilots generally?

Applicants ought to grow a collective spine and return the balance of power to our profession not the MBA's who get rich off your hard work under the guise of "representing shareholders interests" and move on to the next industry at the drop of a hat.

Why on earth would we not apply john_smith? It's a speculative application. Easyjet have been extremely light on detail so there is no way of knowing at this stage if the type rating will cost 300, 30,000 or be "self-sponsored" by way of a bond and if there is even a decent contract on offer.

For me, and I imagine many others, it will have to be significantly better than my current employment deal to consider it. Perhaps that won't matter; maybe there will be hundreds of unemployed people with experience willing to sell their soul for a chance to fly for ezy, and maybe there won't. Either way, if I didn't apply I would have no chance at all.

That tunnel thing with the mouse was quite fun! I think they should release it as an app for people to kill time on whilst sitting on trains.

What the hell was the verbal test about!! I think even with the advertised ten minutes it would still be solid!

Ah well, we shall wait and see whether the PFO email arrives after the 7th!

You can get a heads-up on the style of some of the stuff you're likely to see from cut-e: Assessment Solutions

Just finished the tests - now some weeks of patience before they are done filtering - is there people who got a later date than the 7 May to complete this?

Slight thread drift, couldn't find this defined before but pjn has just had a bit of an update on the easyjet page and talks a lot about "factored" hours...

What are factored hours? And what is the factor?

Non easyJet flying experience is factored to varying levels depending on if it is multi crew airline, fixed wing , rotary, military, single pilot etc.

If you PM what you background is, I can probably help..
