Any updates on the assessment at the moment ?

Are they still failing the majority of candidates and asking useless FCOM questions ?

Nicoli and frequen flyer, last type rated group I’m aware of from a few weeks ago, about 2/3rds failed, A very broad range of questions apparently.

I honestly don't understand whats wrong in asking FCOM stuff to rated and experienced candidates.

This assessment has been known for its average pass rate of 30% or so ever since. While some screw up the technical part, many also fail the group exercise and the HR interview. I know many highly competent and experienced A320 pilots who didn't make it because of the non-technical part.

Alloy and PilotLZ
Thank you very much for the feedback
It would be nice to have a pre screening and they only invite candidates that they intend to hire.

Itís just a personal feeling that with now the efb available, being able to know from memory part of the FCOM that is rarely used is not relevant rather than knowing where to search and find the information accurately and quickly.

Hi! Hello!
After recruiting for the job offer First Officer - Non-Type Rated - Cadet Level, I received an e-mail from Wizzair asking me to provide information about my flight experience (hours spent as a pilot, simulator, flight training, licenses).

I completed the tables in the link five times, in newest Mozilla Firefox and newest Chrome browsers, on a computer and a tablet. After completing, information about a successful saving appeared.

However, when I entered the link again, none of the data I saved appeared in the opened page (no flight hours, no license, no simulator time, nothing).

Therefore, I would like to ask, is this the correct way to display the data after it has been properly saved? Or is something not working properly?

Thank you for your help.

dziabanek, my flight experience page is showing fine, with all hrs prefilled when I use the link they've sent. It usually takes a few moments to load, though.

Could other cadets who were invited for an interview please let us know here how long have they been waiting for Wizz response once they applied?

good luck everyone.

I have received an email that my application has been forwarded by a corporate recruiter, this is for Wizz UK Experienced Non Rated FO. Does this mean the next step is an invitation for interview?

Mine has had the following status since the middle of Jan:
"You were forwarded as an applicant, therefore you are shortlisted on this job requisition"

Wonder if anyone has been called after this type of status

Oh I see, I've got the exact same, so it could mean little. They seem to be planning some pretty major expansion out of LGW from late March though so it could be soon

Since they said +400 recruitment before summer 22. And assuming %25 of success aprox, thats +1600 invitations. I think most of the people who want in will have a shot.

Hello all!

Does anybody know how the process looks like from applying to getting invited?
How many stages are there in between and what kind of time is needed? In other words, should you be fully prepared when you apply or you have a couple of months if they chose to invite you?

Thank you in advance!

Hi YourFlyingDutchman. When I have received the invitation I personally had a calendar with multiple dates. Every week from the one after I received the invitation to 1 month and a half after. Not sure if this is still the case, it seems from other applicants that the calendar now it's fully or almost fully booked.

Same here! I applied as experienced F/O NTR... no particular base preference. Did someone receive an invitation for the assessment after this status? How does it work? I have that status since 13 January 2022 but still no email from them.

Thanks for the response cbr58!

I think I will send an application soon. If any other applicant for F/O NTR has been to the process please share your experience with us

Cheers

I have checked again, there is definitely no invitation to an assessment. Just a notice that my application has been forward for the requisition

Hi, Pilots. Is there any information about the terms and conditions for Abu-Dhabi? Commuting roster? Salary?
Wizz keep it in secret, but I don’t want to go to Budapest, just to learn that I will get 28 days of annual leave.
