Assessment dates.

Hi,

I am wondering if anyone knows if and when more assessment dates are planned after the 04th December?

I have been invited for assessment, however my current roster will make it very difficult for me to attend on the dates given.

Thanking you in advance.

Previous hold pooler

Just wondering if any guys previously in the hold pool who've applied have been contacted yet at all?

As an aside question. Is there a medical examination prior to employment? I see you have to be able to satisfy the BA medical requirements.

Cover letter

Hi guys, just wondering if anyone else has been asked to send in a cover letter. I cannot see where you would submit it via the recruitment and the email has not come from the normal email address.

I hope this isn't a mistake I have made!

Good luck to all

The guide said that you should upload CV and cover letter in a single file - Word, PDF, etc.

How long does it usually take to receive any answer from HR?

Heard back within a week. Sadly, there appear to only be a limited number of test slots available and all on working days for me!

Third time I'm asking ....

Anyone know how many DEPs BA have hired since August 2014? Even better if someone can share stats on how many have been invited to Stage 1 since the same period. Curious to know.

Could anyone confirm whether British Airways require ALL logbooks to be shown or only more recent ones?

Many thanks!

I suspect only the BA manager directly involved knows that, he may or not pop here with an answer.

If simply want some indication of order of magnitude the last credible mention of numbers came up another place a few days back: There it was said that currently they are looking for 20'ish DEPs on the 787 and 60+'ish for the 744, and that the January courses were already "contracted", which I assume is recruitment speak for folks who have been informed and have signed on the line i.e. "hired". No mention of Shorthaul numbers but that wasn't the context of the "conversation" I was looking at, someone else might have those numbers.

Probably not exactly what you want but I hope that's of some help.

We were all asked to submit a cover letter with our CV as one PDF document. The fact it looks like you didn't but BA have contacted you asking for one, is a good sign, that while you didn't do it, they haven't rejected you...

Has anyone who attended Day 2 last week heard anything yet? I know it's the weekend but possibly Friday?

Does anyone know any info about any rumours I've heard that reapplying to BA waiting time might go down from 12 to 6 months? Website seems to indicate that you can reapply after 6 months but 12 months if you've done any of the assessments..
Lots of people I know very keen to be reconsidered having not passed aptitude/interview/sims...

It seems to be true. Received PFO yesterday with the 6 months period mentioned...

Been told these were issued in error. New letters confirming 12 month wait to be sent out.

Does anyone remember for the Flight director test, does it require the horizontal bar (the pitch bar) to be brought back to the centre using the reverse sense? Ie if the bar goes up, normally you'd pitch up to the FD bar, but in this test does it want you to pitch down?

It's the opposite sense to the F/D! When's day one for you VJW?

How long has it been taking people to hear back after day 2? I have a feeling it won't be good news for me, but would be nice to be put out of my misery!

Anyone else still waiting to hear back? I applied on day one of the non-type rated campaign. No PFO so far. I've been checking the careers site, my email and my junk folder every day! 3,000TT, most on jets, not typed on a Boeing or Airbus though.

Guys, sorry to relay the news but I know of bus rated people applying over the last several weeks getting invites for just a week later. What this indicates despite the recruitment drive for the 777 and 747 I don't know...
