Says the TRE!
Sorry, I'm not with you?? Yes, I am a TRE, I followed that exact pathway to get there. Is my statement not correct?

All of those positions are available to those that qualify.

I think that's an option too these days Cullin, hadn't thought of that. There's also Ground instructor positions to those interested.

That seems to be determined on an individual basis. When I joined I was on 100% from the word go but my sim partner was on 70% and 50% during training. The primary difference between us was prior experience levels. I think that most who are on 70% contracts get 100% after a season but don't quote me on that.

I was asked during selection if I would accept 70% part time and I said yes as it would have been ok for my own circumstances. I have no idea if that made any difference.

Don't know if things are different this time around or what the basis is at the moment but I would imagine that supply and demand play a large part in who gets offered what.

A bit vague I know but I hope this is of some use.

No 50% training pay any more. Either 70% or 100% contracts depending on experience levels etc.

I think busbo was referring to the fact that TRE might not be everyone's career goal

Paddington wellies & zeddb - on your point about experience levels, you don't say which way around it is. A guy I know with over 7,000 hours got 70% recently, whilst a few months ago I know of 2 guys with under 3,000 hours that got 100%, so does that fit in with your theory in that higher experience gets 70% and lower gets 100%?

Of course I know that things change regularly depending on their requirements.

Supply and demand I agree.

The 100% guys I mentioned above were perhaps an exception as they were 2,000 to 3,000 all medium turboprop, but they were interviewed at the end of 2015 when there was a short-notice requirement for a batch of 757 crew.

Possibly?

I was however merely pointing out that all positions are available internally to those that have the desire and ability.

Does anyone have any direct information from experience as to how long it takes to get command in Jet2 as a new joiner (or in general at all)? Are they keen to get upgrades through or is that quite difficult? Thanks

A colleague joined from one of the ME3 earlier this year. He has the hours, but needs 6 months post final line check before he can submit upgrade paperwork. Once he does so, assuming he meets the criteria, he should be loaded onto the next available command development course (running monthly). This leads into an assessment sim. Once complete the result is put before a command board. Success there leads to command training. Theoretically he could have a command by next summer, around 12-15 months after joining.

The preference would always be to promote from within, but there just isn't the throughput to meet current expansion.

In the same boat myself. Hoping for something positive early next year.

I would recommend looking through the development material available on the intranet and doing the questions. Amazing what you forget, whatever your prior experience.

I've looked through the last 10 pages or so and I can't find any info on the current state of recruitment. I did my interview/assessment day in Sep, got a call from a nice chap 2 weeks ago telling me they would have an answer for me as soon as possible. Does anybody have any idea of the state of play in there at the moment?

Did you apply as DEC. Rated F/O. Non rated Captain. None rated F/O or Cadet?

HR is not always as quick as people would like.

Recruitment team will be extremely busy at the moment with all the expansion planned for next summer. Don't take the lack of communication personally, you'll hear in time.

I'm DEC. I understand the team are under pressure, I just wondered if there was any news.

Online Application

Well, that's my details in the system. Fairly straightforward.

I could only manage 15 out of the 20 numerical questions, all about pie charts and percentages, in the allotted time. Is this normal?

230 psych questions - it is what it is.

Going for non-rated FO position. Daring to hope.

15 out of 20 is better than most to be honest! I thought my application was a write off after doing that maths. Managed to pass it by some miracle....

After just 8 days, have received standard email "Your Jet2.com Pilot Application - Next Steps" telling me that my application is being reviewed and if successful, expect to be telephone interviewed within the next 4 weeks. I don't know whether or not this is quick or not but still daring to hope.

Onwards and upwards.

Wasn't a hard decision to make for me to be honest! Looking forward to a future with Jet2.
