I've heard of waiting times upwards of 5 years for BUD, VIE, WAW, LCA and other highly desirable bases.

They have introduced floating patterns from some of those bases.

Hi guys! Is there any recruiting at the moment on Wizz?
I've joined the cadet F/O application months ago but I still have no news. I know from a few friends that applied later last year that were mailed to visit Wizz. Any news on future processes being known?
Thanks in advance

I checked my job application and it's listed as "invited to Assessment Day". However, I have not received any further emails. Do they reach out via email or is there a different process?

Any information about the interview process and level of difficulty compared to the past (which was reported being negative with low pass rate) any help would be appreciated.
Do they have any fast track program for NTR experienced FOs and what would be the time required for future upgrades?

Was there not too long ago. Same experience as reported. About 30 people show up, massive sales pitch by some jumped up guy who they made captain at 23 probably and thinks he's God's gift to aviation. A rushed tech interview where you can't finish your sentence before the next question. Only 25% make it to the sim. I didn't get the offer. Since then, I interviewed with 2 better companies and got two job offers. More pay, better rosters and much more friendly atmosphere.

You slogged your way though your atpl’s, only to be retested by a substandard airline.

what is the point of this?

to make sure you actually sat your exams? To see how impervious you are to abuse?

who needs that noise.

Indeed it's waived. I wouldn't go back, though...

Sounds like a bit of a parent-child relationship at Wizz….

Laughable irony.

They are on their knees with almost zero applicants to fly their aircraft.

The waiving of the no return policy is a desperate, doomed, last ditch attempt to stave off the disaster that is looming - and shows an unwillingness (or inability) to move away from being the worst paid airline out there.

No significant numbers of returners will show up.

With the 535 million loss just reported for the fiscal year 2023 they are not in a position to raise. Something has to give though.

Any chance of getting in as DEC having now flown for 3 years? 10k+ TT, 6000 on type, 5500 command on type. UK licence.
Yes I am desperate.

Cheers

For the record I didn't mean the people looking for a job but the company.

I'm not trying to be the devil's advocate, far from it, really. Can't think of a reason to go back, however their massive attrition could be mitigated with very little to no financial impact, if that's what prevents it (highly doubt it - it's more like the spiteful minions in BUD). Examples: reinstate full and unlimited positive space travel for commuters, how about throwing it in for their immediate family members too and the list of cheap to no cost conveniences could go on and on. Making life bearable on the line, easing commuting, granting vacation in a reasonable due time goes a long way and might make some change their minds on leaving.
