TR courses have stopped for the summer and will start again Sept time. Those on the first dates have only recently been made offers so your time will hopefully come sooner or later They will be running courses throughout the winter so there should be plenty of spaces to get on eventually

There seems to be some confusion. I agree with you about the diversity of EZ recruits over the years. I however am not the one who was complaining about it as I am still an EZ pilot. It was another forum member who had been turned down by EZ. [quote=a350pilots;9803759]@ King6

HI everyone,
I will attend the assessment soon for NTR F/O, could anyone give me some hints about how the day will be? I still haven't received the briefing form Easy.
Thanks a lot in advance.

Thinking about applying to Easyjet, does anyone know how many experienced pilot they need, have around 4500 hours, but on 737. I know most places will be filled with cadets, but thinking a more financially stable company is better in the long run.

If it's anything like this year, when around 400/450 pilots were hired, about 50 were DEC, 100 DEFO and the rest cadets. How many of these DEFO were rated I have no idea, but a fair amount I guess.

Which base would you choose between gtw and Ltn and why? Any idea of pros and cons of these bases? Thanks...

Part time question

Does anyone know if you joined Easy as a DEC at LGW or LTN how long it would take to be offered part time, and what the part time options (75%, 50% etc) are?

Thanks for any info.

Both available.
Depends on the circumstances, but PT is quite popular and difficult to get.

Thanks A350. In what way is it difficult? First come first served / long waiting list / need to have young kids?

What does the EasyJet Selfsponsered TR program means?

Is it cash up front?

A training bond, where each month money (cash up front) will be paid back to the employe, for eg. 2 or 3 years?

A training bond where the costs of the TR, will be deducted from the pay slip each month for eg. 2 or 3 years?

A training bond, for eg. 2 or 3 years, where you will have to pay back some money, if you decide to leave before the bonding expires?

Sorry for my ignorance....

Just a quick question. Has anybody commenced employment with EasyJet without a EASA licence, meaning on a validation of another ICAO licence ?
Thanks Guys !

volare 737 - An EASA licence is a condition of employment at easyJet. Without it their TREs cannot sign your licence.

A UK easa license, I would add.
To be arranged by the first day of the induction course.
Painful and long to get, also coming from another easa country.

NTR process and interview

Hi All,

It seems one of those threads in which many are asking questions but very few are getting answers so since I've recently completed the NTR assessment in LGW I will happily give my contribution.
During the company presentation they have asked us not to share any specific details regarding the interview with other possible candidates, and I intend to follow that instruction so please don't ask and don't be mad at me for that.

- I applied and after a day or two I received an email instructing me to complete an online assessment. Several excercises such as verbal reasoning, multitasking, spatial orientation and personality test. I'd say no preparation is needed and it's not as hard as a compass test but you still need to be fully concentrated so make sure you are alone and undisturbed for about 30/40 minutes.

- I received an email right after completion stating that I passed and my profile would have been reviewed.

- after a week I received a new email saying that my application had been review and that I was invited to the assessment. I then logged onto the Easyjet careers portal and booked myself in. I could choose between LGW and LTN.

- on the day of the assessment you show up either in the morning or in the afternoon depending on the slot you selected. It's a one day assessment so if you choose morning you do the sim before the interview. It works the other way around for the afternoon which was the slot I went for.
Everyone was extremely cool. Most of the recruiters were pilots and there was one HR recruiter. There may be two. After taking care of our paperwork in a one-to-one with a recruiter we all went up in a room for a company presentation. At the end of it you can ask questions if you have any. Afterwards we completed a group excercise. Remember to focus on the objective and to talk to each other. Good CRM is what they want to see.
After a little break we did the one-to-one non-technical interview. Not much I can say, just be yourself. They will send you a briefing that will give you an idea. Just follow their suggestions and guidelines.
At the end of it, we were taken to the sim center. The guys who completed the sim in the morning were free to go home.

- the sim was a simple ride. As we were non rated there were no failures. They just want to see how you fly and behave in the cockpit and how good your CRM is. You won't receive a sim briefing before the assessment, but the assessor will give you the charts and you'll have plenty of time to brief. He will be your sim buddy and will do what you ask him to do but remember that you are the PF so you make decisions. The only advise I would give is not to over control. It may happen if you are not used to a FBW/side stick aircraft. Be gentle, it's very sensitive but very easy to fly.
The whole ride will be without AP, FD and AT. You'll just fly as you did on a Cessna. You won't be de-briefed.

- after a week or so I received the good news and now I'm in the holding pool awaiting for a start date.
No idea when that phone call will come through to be honest. The first types will start from October on, so it could be next week or maybe in a few months.

I have been as thorough as I could. There isn't much else I know.
I wish you the best of luck. I had an extremely good impression. The recruiters are professionals and the process is one you would expect for a pilot position, unlike other employers that focus just on HR.
Ciao ciao

I am trying to get all the facts before applying for a NTR DEC in Lisbon. If there are any current pilots at EZ who can help me I would really appreciate it.

This has been updated recently for the new Portugal contract
