As the days since I applied are now measured in the hundreds and I have yet to receive any acknowledgement of my application, I wondered if anyone else is in the same boat? I’m guessing at this stage I should consider this a de facto PFO? NTR FO. Thanks for any info.

You didnt receive the automatic acknowledgement?
Or are you talking about the quote from that email, that said they would be in touch within 4weeks?

No one I know has heard anything, including people who were previously in the hold pool.
I wouldn't write yourself off yet

Thanks spamcandriver. I did get the auto-acknowledgement but nothing beyond that. Thanks for the info.

nothing here either. If they want people trained for next summer with 3 month notice periods and 3 month training (approx) I imagine things will move quick from October

Nowt here eitherÖ 737 TR DEC.

IMHO itís a poor show that thereís been radio silence from J2. A simple one sentence generic update to all applicants wouldnít go amiss. If their fleet/crew plans have changed, fair enough, but at least have the decency to communicate.

TR DEC will unfortunately be the last to be called. Big push to promote from within coupled with the majority of recruitment being FO’s spells a wait I’m afraid. I would say most of the DEC incomes will be trainers, mainly on the airbus. We will be recruiting all year around apparently so maybe when the pool of internal candidates dries up there maybe movement.

Some have heard from J2, so at least as recent as a few weeks ago there was activity with recent applications. For those of us not hearing thus far from J2 - it may be we have to accept that perhaps we don't necessarily have at this time, the criteria that J2 are looking for in recruiting new pilots? Harsh but maybe true? and I include myself in this number as I have not heard anything.

I donít mind not being selected, I just want them to either send an interim comms out, or issue a PFO, rather than just radio silence. Itís basic decency.

I totally agree. It’s very poor to go months without an update, or even an indication that an application has been read and assessed.

just to temper your expectations, when I have applied to Jet 2 in the past, I didnít get the PFO until much later. Iím led to believe itís only sent out once all vacancies in the campaign (TR, NTR, FO, DEC etc) have been filled. So could be a while depending on how theyíre doing it.

Bon Chance.

I think this may well be the case as to why we haven't heard anything - understand why it perhaps is frustrating not to have heard anything in the interim, or otherwise but equally - they (J2) I am sure will have been inundated to the extreme, so might explain a lack of comms. For me personally, I will therefore accept that the PFO is most likely 'in the post' and move on to the next opportunity should it present itself in due course.

Has anybody received an offer/start date and if yes how long did it take them to contact you with the good news?

Someone at my airline (NTR FO with TP time) applied the first week it opened this year and got an email a month ago asking if he was still interested. Heíd already started a new job with the pink people so he didnít reply.

They contacted him again a couple of weeks ago offering an assessment which he politely declined.

I just had a call asking if still I was still interested and availability for selection days in October. My application was for A321 type rated.

She did apologise for the delay and explained that it was down to decisions on basing. Not sure if this was only for the A321 but I was told that the application would now only be for Birmingham or Manchester bases.

She said she had lots of people to call so hopefully everyone should get some news soon either way.

Did you receive a PFO?

Email went out last week apologising for the delay as they continuously adjust their requirements for summer 23. Told to expect an update in the next 3-4 weeks.

I have only EU Passport. Maybe for that reason my application is not progressing.
