Career.aero - interpersonal GmbH

Why are (all) the german airlines using this agency for their pilot selections? It seems like a huge profitable business model for interpersonal.
The airlines miss out on so many pilots, just because they do not have the time to prepare for the astronaut tests for months.

Interpersonal (Hamburg) and DLR (Hamburg) are two different challenges

DLR = "Astronaut" tests, very demanding, takes weeks of prep
Interpersonal = tests on CUT-E level, very doable, passing grade depends on the airline's individual requirements, forwarded to Interpersonal. Prep for a few days and you are good, provided your English is solid and you remember something from your ATPL. They might, e,g., tell you that your tests was good for Condor but insufficient for DHL or vice versa. You can take one test and re-use it for different airlines, that is also a plus

They just have one test for all airlines and, surprise, surprise, your personal result does not count at all, they compare it with the average of the last 2000 tests, if you are above average, you pass, if you are below average, you do not pass. Thats what I have been told accidently by one of the very professional youngsters in their office. So waste of time to prepare for any of these tests

I passed on my second try. I would say that the key is the stamina. A lot of tests, I remember the first time I was exhausted during the last tests
How to keep the mental stamina, that one you need to figure out yourselves

Thanks! I used the skytest. Keep in mind that it's a long day and you need to keep focused till the last test. The first time I attended the assessment I was well prepared but got too tired. So sleep well, eat well, have energy drinks, coffee or whatever keeps you alert

It's how you prepare, tests are not that difficult. If you practice for an hour a day and you achieve high scores, this doesn't mean that you will get high scores at the actual tests as they don't last one hour. Check your performance after practicing for several hours.
I have an iq of 130, still failed the first time cause of the fatigue, I don't think I got smarter now

Devil To be or not to be

It's interesting to see that none of the responders does even care about answering the question of the OP. All they think about is their own welfare.

IMHO: it's the principle most businesses run on in this corrupt country. Connections and networking.

What utter bollox For whatever reasons, airlines outsource aptitude tests to a third party. The founders of Interpersonal were smart enough to establish their company as another option to the DLR. Like any business they are in it for the money. What's wrong with that?

The Interpersonal test is certainly not an astronaut test. When I took it most people passed. Btw, I haven't been on the ISS.

Tests

I don't know of any similar profession where the applicant needs to do psychometric tests over and over again. If someone can proof he/she passed those tests in the passed, then what is the added value of doing tests every time he/she applies? Oh after 20 years flying a BU/GU/CUT-E/Mollymawk really is the game changer? It seems like a huge money-making model to me.
