Hello folks! Looking at anyone within Jet 2 that could enlighten me on this one.

Recently went through selection and managed to get to the sim - just received an email saying I have passed the sim assesment, but I'm now in a hold pool but no final decision has been made.

Does this mean they are trying to organise bits and bobs before committing to TR dates / class sizes etc or because there will now be an influx of applications from a certain 737 operator who are potentially letting people go?

Spoken to a few of my jet 2 buddies and they weren't aware a hold pool existed.

Any insight would be appreciated!

Hold pool Q

Normal procedure, they will just be figuring out what course dates line up with your notice period with where you are going to be based, depending on which fleet etc

I wouldn't expect much of a delay, 73 courses are running all year round and 75 courses will start up again over the winter

Thanks for responding. Hopefully won't be too long.

Hi folks! I am just wondering does anybody know how do Jet2 pay employees in Euro bases. I am tentatively exploring the Alicante base 737 DEC option.
Do you guys n gals know if the salary is paid in Euro, on local taxes, or paid in sterling, or paid in sterling with fixed exchange rate, for example?
TIA, best regards!

I’m pretty sure it’s paid in Euros, with local taxes applicable. If you are a U.K. expat that there is something called Beckham Tax I believe that memes the tax rate very preferential.

I cant see the ALC base being under threat post Brexit, the only flights operated from there are to the U.K.

Please could someone provide the latest typical summer/winter take-home pay figures for a NTR FO and SFO at the MAN base? Is promotion to SFO automatic, and how long after joining does this happen assuming joining with a decent amount of experience?

Any nightstops or working out of base?

Thanks.

Wait time in holding pool

Hi all, I passed the Jet2 selection in June and was told that I was being placed in a holding pool pending a final decision. For people who have been in a similar situation, does anyone have any idea how long one remains in the holding pool and whether Jet2 are still actively recruiting non type rated guys?

“ Pending a final descision” doesn’t sound like you have passed everytheng then? J2 did alot of recruitment assessment days this year, and are still recruiting, for all seats, both none & rated. Wether they need so many who knows.
Looks like its going to be a rather large pool thats filling rapidly.

J2 Hold Pool

Received an email yesterday along the lines of "still very much being considered" but no guarantee of a job. My assesment was late July.

To those that are waiting in the pool, I think your basing preference can sometimes have something to do with it. I was completely flexible and was offered a course within a month of attending selection, however not at my first choice base. The only reason people have waited so long has either been as a result of this or the candidate's availability; this information is clearly caveated by my very limited experience!

I am in the hold pool since mid July. I keep getting emails but no date for a course. Do you think those with Type ratings and those bailing from Ryan Air could be getting in before non type rated people like myself??

I never got the 14 day answer, just to say that I was in the pool..still swimming.
