Honiley is a frustrated DHL pilot, not happy with his lot there.

I believe he was not successful with the Jet2 selection process on 2010, what is DHLs loss is Jet2's gain!

LSM - really? Not what I hear. They either want to fly or be at home, but not stuck in never never land.

SC, when the 757 was in NCL there were no complaints

I guess it's changed now they're all sitting in Cheese House.

best not to make assumptions about what deal someone has until you have all the facts.
Well, no. As this is a thread for people who might want to try to move to J2 from somewhere else, I think they'd be more interested in hearing that 90+ % would be better off than about one guy on a special deal who was still having to weigh it up.

I have no particular axe to grind here.

Had (yet another) unsolicited call from that nice lady in Zenon a couple of days ago, asking (maybe because I live in Spain ) if I fancied a job flying the "Classic" in ALC.

Apparently, the contract is now all year round, and "promised" as ongoing, I have heard all the bad news, but, if I wasn't otherwise engaged I would have been open to it, as one devoted to remaining in "Sunny Spain".

Folks for strokes & all that, but, for some at least, this is a little "oasis" totally alien to life in LBA, that may be attractive to some ? (or am I missing sumfink bl**dy obvious ? )

From what I hear, those based down there permanently are enjoying the lifestyle. Not much flying though, but plenty of time sitting at the airport. Maybe a good chance to do an Open University course...

You may be the only one still waiting, which is positive for you because i know of 4 who have heard nothing and in the meantime have signed with another 737 operator...............hang in there a good outfit if you do get the call.

Still waiting. Received an update email mid December to say my application is still being considered and that they would be in touch the following week. Nothing since.

Rumours that the Pilot Manager has or is in process of leaving? I don't know if that might be why job offers are slow to go out?

They have made the mistake in previous years of thinking that a big pile of applicants means that there is no rush to recruit. Finding out the hard way when making offers, that crew have already secured jobs elsewhere.

I was interviewed in November and singed my contract a few weeks ago starting in a few months time. My friend also received the good news. Both of us are type rated. I received the same email in mid December saying they would be in contact the next week and received the call and contract exactly a week later.

Is the recruitment process still ongoing or is it finished for the moment?

Call and ask, they are an approachable bunch in my experience. There has been offers of 100% contracts to 737 rated bods (both seats) prior to Christmas. They start mid April. You would assume these are the main courses prior to summer; but I'm only speculating.

Just received my PFO! Luckily had been offered a job elsewhere in the 4 months between applying and today, so this concludes my interest in Jet2 for the foreseeable.

A shame as I really wanted to work for them at one stage, but right now I have no idea what they are looking for! Good luck to the rest to of you still in the 'process'

PFO for me today for non-TR FO (2000TT on TP). Had tried to get bit of inside track on recruitment and was keen for a base in Weegie-town, but made no difference in the end. Can't say I'm surprised given the probable volume of applications and availablity of TR'd folk. Suppose there's maybe next year...

Best of luck to anyone still in the process.

Annual call

Yesterday I got my annual phone call from an agency that supply's pilots to Jet2.

So from this I gather that they are looking for pilots.

Same boat, they were offering ALC base, and said it was "ongoing" rather than "seasonal". . . that was a surprise.

I bet you told the lady the same thing as I did !

You really don't want to spend most of your life at ALC sitting around Jet2's version of the QRA shed.

Interesting A and C, the recruitment department is saying that they have all that they require for the year. I watch from a distance these days, it seems to be the best way.
