No truth to that rumour at all, probably started by someone who didn't make it through the selection.

I must admit, that's what I'm hoping. I've been waiting for EZY to start recruiting experienced but not TR'd people for bloody ages. Why? I need to move on from flying TPs and I want to be based in the south.

a little bit off topic but thats okay sometimes:

I was wondering what those green buttons on the forward throttle panel in all EZY buses are necessary for?

its quite unique for EZY,never seen it in any other airbus flying around.

this picture illustrated it pretty good:

thanks for the answer!

It's the 'cabin secure for takeoff/landing' flipper. The other side is blue.

I'd be willing to bet there's a lot of rubbish being spouted by the 'I won't take it if ............' Brigade.

The selection will be inconvenient. Days off, hotels etc etc. not to mention prep time. So if you're going to go through that, in the knowledge that the package won't be great, you probably won't be an SFO, and you'll be a few years to LHS, even if you passed a command assessment at the first OPC, you are probably going to take it if offered. All the 'I've got a good job on a jet I don't need it.' Well you must do or why look to leave to fly Le orange bus. As said above join BA and you'll be bottom rung, with a lot longer to command.

Face it, ezy is the only show in town just now. Ezy know that, so do you. All the bluster counts for nothing.

To help us better know you and further assess your qualifications for this position, please answer the following questions as accurately as possible.
1. Do you have an ATPL (A) (frozen)?
Yes
No
2. Do you have an ATPL (frozen)?
Yes
No
So How do you answer this?
Its got it on there . . .
with either a "Yes" or a "No"

Not meaning to be funny - and I don`t know quite yet how it happened, but that link to airliners.net above . . .showing a rather nice A319 - well, that flicked to a subliminal page (when I cleared the tab) to a flightglobal page with a note (in orange) and an exclamation mark - saying "this post/position/job (I forget which) is now closed"

Which is a , but, it doesn`t surprise me (if it is true) as the BA Cadet or F/O offers usually close in about a week, if you are very lucky.

Applying this way then: You need to be very fast, then come on PPRuNe and talk about it - not before.

I sincerely hope I am wrong and that some is playing about with some software somewhere and that the opportunity with EJ is still ongoing, but, be fast! He who hesitates washes up for a living.

Wxman, I don t see the reason why it would not be true to hire experienced guys. Easyjet will see that in this market you will find easily 100 experienced guys who will take the conditions as they are offered. Even if that means paying for a type rating and starting with a salary.
So for the price of a low timer you can get an experienced pilot. management would like that option. maybe tons of pilots would refuse but I m sure there are enough around to take it.

Wxman - I have no idea where you got your information from but it is total cobblers. EasyJet will take on those new pilots on the New Entrant Contract. As others have alluded to, some of our more experienced flexicrew are somewhat miffed at the new deal. They think they should be given some credit for past experience with easyJet or indeed in another airline. That has yet to be resolved, but there will be winners and losers - mainly losers unfortunately. The deal on offer to new guys coming from outside is much clearer - it will be up to you if you take it or not if the opportunity arises.

Anybody else just get an email from EZ recruitment?

...We are now completing our final review of applications and CVs and will be short listing the candidates that will be invited to an easyJet assessment centre in the next 2 weeks. If you are successful following final shortlisting you will receive an invitation to book yourself on to an assessment centre, so please look out for this and log in to see the available dates and times as soon as you can.

Yup. Just got the same e-mail.

Congratulations on getting through to the next stage of the recruitment process for the role of First Officer with easyJet. The interest in the opportunity has been significant and, as a result, competition for places with us has been tough, so you have done really well to get this far.
I hope they will give enough dates since almost all of us are employed.

Good luck to all.

I haven't received anything yet, but It contradicts the email they sent out a few weeks ago:

I am delighted to confirm that you have successfully completed the on-line assessment stage of the recruitment process and will shortly receive an invite to join us for the next stage of the process. This will consist of an assessment centre and, if successful, a simulator check.

Surely, if the email states the above then one will be invited for an interview?

what going to happen now unfortunately...

Interview at the assessment centre? Due to cost and sim availability, I'd be extremely surprised if they put you in the sim prior to interview. They want to know if you'll fit in to the "Orange order" prior to any technical/non-technical assessment.

Are the guys who got the reply today TR qualified or non-TR? Slightly confusing email re the one received 3 weeks ago. Also surprising that there isn't a deluge of posters. The plot thickens!

Don't forget there were 2 different recruiting threads. Non-TR and TR. Is this email for the TR guys and the one 3 weeks ago for the non-TR guys? It would make sense that they can assess the TR guys more easily from CV, flying experience after the online-assessment, get them to HQ and assess further and process them. Then later this summer assess the non-TR guys as this may be more difficult.

Thoughts......

Just read.

This will consist of an assessment centre and, if successful, a simulator check.
First assessment centre THEN if successful the SIM ride.

Assessment centre will most probably consist of Group exercises, english test, system test on the Airbus (for those type rated), and finally one on one interview.

For the record, i am type rated and I got the two e-mails. So not sure about the TR and non-TR e-mails.
