last pilots rejoin WIZZ were not even offered the option of local contracts.
local contract is only offered in Tirana, Skopje, UK and Italy
just missed Chisinau
You like to leave the important bits out. Also missed the part where people with local citizenship are offered local contract by default.

You mean, for instance, an Italian can expect an italian base directly?

no he means that if they choose to base you in Italy which is highly unlikely they’ll give you a local contract not Confair

I believe anyone based in Italy have local contracts, not only italians.

Anybody who is at wizz or is well informed please explain the general differences between CONFAIR and local contract. Also what bases are currently on offer and likely to be on offer in the next few months, any chances of a U.K. base?

thanks in advance.

Sim assessment

Anyone recently in the simulator assessment for captains could give a feedback on what to expect ?

and also who passed the assessment, what are the expected bases for captains ?

Hi guys,
is Wizz Air still calling for interviews? What about non type rated captains?
Thank You!

Type rating costs

Hello everyone,

Any idea for NTR FOs if you are bonded for a certain amount of years or they request the TR sum in advance like Ryanair?

Thank you in advance!

Is it true now that after the simulator, you have to undergo a very long computer based aptitude test (the likes of which most other companies do BEFORE)?

Second question, are the FO recruitment days completely separate from Captain recruitment days?

Thank you

The aptitude test is indeed in the final stage. People who have recently attended say that it's like 2-3 hours long. Indeed, I wonder why it's not in the beginning, like in most other companies. Aptitude and theory tests usually serve to reduce the number of candidates going to the interview - the part requiring the highest number of man-hours on part of the recruitment team.

Because these two do not have corporate-grade like HR departments that are too busy showing the rest of the company how invaluable their work is. Keeping busy makes you busy.

Instead, small operators are looking for pilots who arrive on time as much as practicable with a reusable aeroplane and without spreading dangerous habits among the pilot pool. For this, you need a SIM session and an assessor pilot who's seen a bit of the dark side - and done. Makes you wonder what else is there actually to the job that other companies are so keen to discover. The whole of DLR could not prevent the GW tragedy.

BTW: a fresh rumour is going around, about WZZ calling the people who turned them down the last autumn and in spring time (say again: pilots refused to join the pink T&Cs), but now offering the original salary packages on a flexible contract. After the second finger is shown some threats are issued (blacklist) but ulitmately another call follows a couple of days later with the contract attached for the standard duty pattern on pre-covid terms.

This smells a bit like normality is coming, at last.

Just so we are on the same page: people are being offered contracts that every single pilot in Wizz has? If so, what's so special about the rumor?

Oh, perhaps I wasn't. So that we are: Are the new-(re)joiners being all offered pre-COVID pay and duty rosters already?

---- below the line ----
Given the fresh post in the AvEx thread, perhaps I to clarify a bit: The absence of overbearing HR does not automatically make for a nice company.

Just like it was mentioned before in this thread. Pre-covid salary since early August, not sure about the rosters.
