Murtoman, can I ask you how long you waited from successful assessment to being offered a start date/date of employment?

Not too long, couple of months maybe. Though must be said that I passed on the first date they offered for various reasons and the next one was about 4 months later.

Hi Guys and Girls,

Is there an average time that you can expect to be in the Ďtalent poolí? If youíre getting close to the 12 month mark are they likely to do what BA do and kick you out and make you reapply from the beginning? They are continually recruiting however I know they have a huge training burden.

Cheers!

It does seem to be a long time for some people. In my case a few years ago it was 7 months after passing the DEC assessments before I was given a start date for a UK base.

Hi guys, are there any EasyJet pilots who can confirm if NTR pilots joining have to pay for their own TR or is it a 3 year service bond for example. Im actually enquiring for a friend who is not a ppruner as he would be interested in joining EasyJet but not paying for a 30K TR as 1, he cannot afford it, 2 Probably would not be able to get the loan and 3 Just not prepared to pay to work even if he could get a loan.

Any help would be much appreciated

Itís actually around £22k, and with BALPA thereís a chance you can claim £8.5k back in tax. As for not wanting to pay for their training, well plenty of others will so when they reach the front of the queue they can either accept it or let easyJet look over their shoulder at the next guy in the line. Itís a tough choice but in my opinion well worth the investment.

What a sad state of affairs. EXPERIENCED pilots debating whether to pay for a rating to work for this lot.

Only random rosters in Switzerland. New contract is being negotiated but I donít know if fixed roster is a priority.

Many DEFO got hired on a 100% contract. Balpa is working on a reduction of the forced part time for everybody fyi.

Thatís in the UK, in the rest of the European bases only full time contracts are offered.

Why is EasyJet advertising for self sponsored NTR pilots to join and be based in Portugal when they supposedly dont make you pay for a TR out of Portugal. I believe they do in other bases, so what changed?

Has anyone done the Easyjet on-line assessment for NTR FOs? I'm specifically looking at the application for "current Flying Instructors" but I'm guessing that it is fairly standard. Any info, particularly on the nature of :

easyJet Co-Pilot Situational Questionnaire
Complex Control
Spatial Orientation
Multi-tasking Capability (avi)

would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Iím based in Portugal with Easy, DEC and I love it. Itís a fantastic place to work, straightforward days, great crews and contract reasonable for what I need. Each to there own lifestyle depended on what your needs are but suites me perfectly. Anybody interested I have plenty of info regarding contracts, taxes, assessment commuting etc etc so feel free to message with any questions and Iíll be happy to answer. The contract is certainly not rubbish as others have said and CERTAINLY not a terrible place to work.

I subscribed to the easyjet tests on www.latestpilotjobs.com and they were almost identical... I would definitely recommend it!

Good luck!

Direct entry Cpt/FO based in Portugal

Good morning,
I’m next to relocate in Portugal together with my family.
Direct entry SFO.
We will be relocating from Mid East, so it will be a big move for us.
I’m quite interested in receiving any suggestions and tips regarding Contract and possible solutions where to live and schools for kids (Considering any possible suggestion on this matter, I’m quite interested in Cascais as a possible district where to start my research. Already in touch with one estate agency in loco).
Any help will be highly appreciated as we’ll be next to our move.

Skyhigh1234 I was reading you’re based in Portugal.
May I text you to get some hints about taxes, estate agents (if you know any) and contract?


Thanks and regards.

How long does it normally take Easyjet to get back to you once you are thru the online assessment bit and have been told you successfully completed that part?

I did the assessment for Portugal first officer about 10 days ago and was wondering if others did and have heard anything. I am an experienced pilot with over 5200 hours and 2 jet type ratings under my belt but applying for A320 NTR.

Could others who have recently got jobs and those waiting shed any light on the process and what to expect going forward.

Thanks
