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?

I've still not heard a thing, 737 rated, current, UK licence & Yorkshire passport holder.

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.

Just logged on to my J2 application to find it’s finally moved onto stage 2 ‘under review’. Haven’t got my U.K. Licence yet, so not getting too excited. DEC TR 737.

I work for easyJet and am not looking at Jet2. I used to work previously for Channel Express and flew the Handley Page Herald for them in a previous life. I am not looking to go anywhere, but came across this thread. I do know, however, that many of our FOs and captains are applying to Jet2 as they are hacked off by easyJet for one reason or another. Whether they will actually leave when push comes to shove is another matter. From Jet2's point of view, current A320 pilots with loads of hours on type are a pretty attractive commodity. I believe they are trying to hoover up our MAN-based TRE's who now have to work in Crawley near Gatwick and spend a lot of time away from home. By all accounts a good number have applied to them and are progressing through the system. Apparently, they also pay TRE's more at Jet2 than easyJet, but I cannot confirm that.

I am near the end of my career and enjoy being a TRE at easyJet. However, Jet2 have much to commend them, but it is a hard-rules world. Having seen Philip Meeson (Executive Chairman at Jet2) in action many years ago, I have no desire to be part of his empire ever again. However, it is horses for courses and good luck to everyone who goes there. I have as somewhat mercenary view of this. If loads of pilots leave us to join Jet2 then that puts pressure on our terms and conditions and we will all gain from that.

Regarding waiting for recruitment updates, I am afraid that is the nature of the beast. These guys do not care if you are offended in any way - it is simply a matter of filling seats when required. If you fit the bill then you get the call at a time of their convenience. If you pass the assessment you get a job offer for start date of their convenience. If you do not fit the bill at the time, they simply keep you hanging on until you are definitely surplus to requirements and they send out the letter or just do nothing at all. Such is the world of job hunting sadly.
