Does anyone know what's the average wait in the holding pool? I'm already rated on the 320.

Just received an email saying that I've passed the simulator assessment and that I'm entering the holding pool...

Thanks

BAEF use eCrew not JSS. junior = less of what you want. senior = more of what you want, if establishment for the month is correct (it usually isnt, i hear). It will be very similar to the 2/4 sector day trips you're used to - usually further afield to holiday destinations rather than cities.

Thx. Someone I know had a PFO about a week ago, but nothing since the acknowledgement email for me. I guess no news is (hopefully) good news… Job advert is still active until end of this month in any case, so perhaps they’re still sorting through their way through. I’d imagine it’s been pretty well subscribed to for NTR. Good luck!

Are you 320 rated? I've heard they were giving priority to people already rated 🤔

Nope. Where did you hear that? Reliable source?
It will be different training dept avail which would depend on someone getting a start date for rated versus non rated I'm sure anyway.

Sim assessment

Good day all, I would appreciate any information from those who have recently completed the simulator assessment with BA.

Thanks!

I think it go mentioned earlier in this forum as well as from a fairly reliable source but nothing official. They did say in the job description that priority would be given to 320 rated pilot so idk...

Hi all,

Can anyone provide some insights on the online tests that must be completed at home before attending the interview? I understand they are SHL but on the practice website there are so many to choose from? Is there anything specific? Also is there somewhere else to practice as the SHL site doesn't give feedback on where you went wrong.
What happens if these tests do not go well? Have you automatically failed before you have even attended the assessment day and are told not to come?

Forgive me - I am out of the loop with current recruitment processes!

For those in the Hold pool what are the current wait times for a course? Especially those without an A320 rating.

Waited 3 weeks but I'm 320 rated. I know someone who was 737 rated and had a 2 weeks wait. It really depends on the training department availability etc...

Hi all, hope the prep is going well. Would anyone be kind enough to PM me with any advice for the testing/interviews? I've been reading through PPrune the whole day but feel none the wiser!

Except for the small fact that you can't as it seems to have been newly added to the process and hasn't been mentioned anywhere in this thread.

Anyone know anymore?
