You can't. At the interview they will ask you your 3 favorite bases, with no guarantee whatsoever to get any of them (unless they are one of those really ****ty bases they can never crew, like BCM, CRA or SCV). Then you will receive your contract with a totally different base (again, where they can't find enough volunteers to go).

Thanks! I was thinking Georgian bases, probably nobody wants to go there but on the other hand you can have long flights from there

Hello,

Does anyone know if the assessments are still happening? I applied for NTR experienced FO (over 2500hrs factorized) but still didn't get any invitation.

Thank you!

Not enough for the instability, shame and chaos for working for this mob. For the U.K. AOC £60.5K basic (there is basically no additions worth speaking of) plus allowances that in good times basically doubles this figure but can not be relied upon….

Probably not worth attending the virtual open day today based on those figures. £60.5k is an insult!

As I understand flight/duty pay is quite a significant part of the overall package. Just a comparison from April the basic at easyjet is £117k.

£60.5k is not gonna help much with a mortgage application in the southeast of England.

To give an example of how basic it is, pay is not even basic if sick for one day, rather it is statutory sick pay (£22/day ?!?) and absolutely nothing else that personally I consider a flight safety conflict.

As mentioned, this basic salary is useless for any mortgage application in the U.K.

The chaos within the company I consider the largest challenge. Only pluses are nice set of crew and quick promotion prospects.

This is exactly why I believe that there will be a huge exodus of crew in all AOCs and Wizz is going to be in serious trouble. Aircraft deliverys will keep coming but there will be no one to fly them.

No need for future tense here. It's already happening since last April hence the dozen or so wet-leased aircraft, the seven bases closed in the last six months (in the midst of the upturn) and the mass cancellations.

Don't know about resignations, but recruitment and CMD upgrades are going full throttle, needing all positions: (good) DEC applications have basically dried out, so there is a big push for internal upgrades, causing in turn an even bigger strain on FO side. Just keep in mind that bases offered will be mostly in Romania, Albania or Georgia, you will have to wait for a transfer if you want to be somewhere else.
