I agree with that Fatdog. I'm not sure if I have actually applied although I think that I completed all the questions. Luckily they have the paper version which is what they asked for last week. :ok:

I've had all the confirmation e-mails, for registering, and for completing and submitting an application. I also had one to tell me that the paper applications are no longer valid, so would I please complete one on line. What a palaver! Interviews will be in September.

master_warning 13th Jun 2012 11:01

I got an email when I registered my account and an email when I'd completed the test sections, but although it shows on the site that my application has been completed, I haven't got an email to confirm.

shaftsburn 13th Jun 2012 12:10

I am also unsure if my application is complete.

I received 2 emails - one on registering, and one after completing the 'test'.

For me the web site now says 'Active Application', and I was one of those who did not have the education / degree / work history / reference sections.

For those who did have those sections, is your status also 'Active Application', and did you receive some other confirmation email?

And mid-way through the application, a tiny popup window appeared. I resized it and saw something like "Error - You don't have privileges to do this, contact administrator".. Then the window disappeared. Of course I would contact the administrator, but how on earth do I do that!?

Stick35 13th Jun 2012 12:33

I also did not have a page concerning my education etc. Thatswhy i think you first need to fill out the test. If u have a mark of 8 points u can continue your application. If you have less than 8, you are no longer considered.

My opinion

b4dger 13th Jun 2012 12:52

When you registered to apply one of the first questions was do you have a current cv? So surely if you answered yes to this they are not going to ask about employment and education as it will be detailed on your cv. However if you answered no then maybe they ask you to fill in those details on the application form!

windshear-a-head 13th Jun 2012 12:53

If that's the case, I can only guess by 'scoring' an 8 you have to have an EASA licence as that was the only question I answered a 'no' to....therefore there will be very few as you can't convert until Sept.

I'm bus rated with more than twice the required hours so I'd hope to be considered.

I do hope a common sense approach will be taken, CV's read and those deemed appropriate will be contacted in due course.

Good Luck! :ok:

VNAVPTH 13th Jun 2012 13:49

If you have a JAR/JAA UK CAA issued license that is valid till 2017 or after, you have an EASA compliant license. The first EASA ones are issued lated this year, apparently. But all licenses post 2017 will say EASA on the front cover. Thus, if your license expires after 2012, and you have not been required to convert already, you effectively hold an EASA license.
Got to appreciate the humour of PLD in Gatwick. Instructions issued in Klingon would be better understood.

VFE 13th Jun 2012 14:28

Someone tell me if this is pretty much the score on this one:

If you are low houred and don't know your arse from your elbow beyond what JAR OPS requires for passing an IR and ATPL course but have an A320 TR you may get a look in?

If you have been slogging yer tits off for 7 years in the detritus of GA, with a couple of thousand hours, but don't have a TR or any airline experience you may as well forget it?

Is this correct?

windshear-a-head 13th Jun 2012 15:00

Who knows, the ad does state 2000 total with 500 hours on turboprop/jet in excess of 15t.

PT6A 13th Jun 2012 15:06

VFE your spot on in what you said, you would fit into the CTC cadet category. Or you would need to build your time on turboprop or jet somewhere else first then reapply.

Kaka2 13th Jun 2012 17:24

online assessment test
Can anyone be kindly to share what kind of questions are asked in the online assessment test.

Tamer 13th Jun 2012 20:46

Thank you Monarch
....that has to be the best designed application I have ever had the pleasure to fill out. No Bullshit and straight to the point.

Nice one.

Flightlevel001 14th Jun 2012 15:56

It keeps logging me out every 5 minutes and when I try to log back in, theres a 1 in 5 success rate...

Now the whole thing's disappeared altogether!

Panther1984 14th Jun 2012 16:14

Can't seem to find the job on the application website either. has recruitment closed that quickly already? Anyone in the know care to comment.

MaxPower2011 14th Jun 2012 16:32

It may well have closed, heard there were over 500 applications before the online thing went live, so prob have enough to wade through for the time being.

JW411 14th Jun 2012 17:03

Sorry to be a bore, but don't you think it might help if you could spell asymmetric?

Flying Wild 14th Jun 2012 17:13

I had an e-mail from HR yesterday directing me to apply via the website. This after sending a CV in by e-mail previously. Luckily I filled the application in last night. Don't know if they'll look at the paper applications, or just those submitted online.

assymetricdrift 14th Jun 2012 17:17

It's to do with a spelling mistake in a textbook many years ago... I like it when people point it out to me - it makes me realise I'm not the only grammar bore out there!

buzzc152 14th Jun 2012 17:34

Can anyone tell me what sort of roster pattern they work on the A320/1 ?
Is it stable or lots of changes ? Home most nights ?

Coffin Corner 14th Jun 2012 17:43


Was going to fill in the application tonight as I have been working solid all week. The jobs website is now back up but the recruitment for pilot has disappeared.

Oh well

Kirk out 14th Jun 2012 18:05

Was going to fill one out tonight too. Is that it then, finished already!!!!
Surely someone must know........

ZeBedie 14th Jun 2012 22:16

Just put something in the post. If you look suitable, I think they'll consider you.

MrHorgy 14th Jun 2012 22:57

Spoke to HR today. Vacancy offline due to technical problems with the system, it'll be back in 7 to 10 days...

Blighty Pilot 15th Jun 2012 08:25

The technical problem is that we've been inundated and need to clear the backlog.

I doubt a paper application would get looked at. It's all about new systems, hr policies and going through a process.

Good luck folks - great company to work for with an exciting future ahead.

Journey Man 15th Jun 2012 08:30

I can imagine! The first glimmer of hope in a long long time for TP guys sat out in the cold. Well done to Monarch for proposing to bond experienced TP guys. I wish you every success.

master_warning 15th Jun 2012 09:54

To those who have got their applications submitted... when I log into the system, I can see my application sitting as "active application" Is everyone else the same and does this mean that it's been sent through successfully? :)

VFE 15th Jun 2012 09:59

Sent paper application this week. Recieved email yesterday telling me to submit an online application instead.

First.officer 15th Jun 2012 10:03

Master......it does indeed mean you have submitted your application successfully, I was informed by a very helpful lady at Monarch to keep monitoring the application by logging in also.

master_warning 15th Jun 2012 10:31

Thanks very much first.officer - now the wait until I hear good/bad news!!

First.officer 15th Jun 2012 10:56

Your welcome Master, know that they are aware of one or two "teething" issues with the recruitment portal, and am sure it will be resolved soon...have to admit i was very impressed by the comms i've had, can't be easy when they're snowed under with applications !

BISH 15th Jun 2012 11:08

Flying Wild 15th Jun 2012 11:17


I'm not sure you should be posting text from a private members form onto pprune. If the original poster on the BALPA forum wanted to, I'm sure he would have posted here too.

VNAVPTH 15th Jun 2012 11:20

Anyone have a copy of the current SA that they wouldn't mind emailing?

Please pm me if its ok. Many thanks in advance.

charlies angel 15th Jun 2012 13:43

I believe it might be 3.28 an hour but I'm only guessing:ugh:
Is post 1 invisible to anyone else?:E

VNAVPTH 15th Jun 2012 14:14

Scheduling agreement my dear chap not sector allowance.

Flying Torquewrench 15th Jun 2012 18:40

Why the obsession with comparing Monarch to Easyjet?

Some people want to work for Easyjet others want to work for Monarch. As long as the person involved is happy with his/her choice do you really think he/she gives a rats arse what somebody on Pprune thinks about it?

This thread is about Monarch recruiting so just stick to the topic at hand. Do you want a comparison then I suggest you open a new topic called 'Easyjet vs Monarch' or something to that effect.

I am sure that Easyjet has it good point and bad points and the same goes for Monarch. If you are looking for the perfect company then you will be searching till the end of your days.

Everybody needs to look at their own situation and aspirations in life and make a decision based on that! :ok:

Kirk out 15th Jun 2012 22:02

Don't think there is any comparison between easy and Monarch, not at FO entry level anyway. With Monarch you get a job and a salary and a pension and uniform and a roster and sick pay and day off payments and a type rating and loss of licence and medical payed for and health insurance.......and with easy you get...... flexible. There was a time when it was all so different, it was all factored time to become orange because they wanted the best of the best, now it's factored to zero! Go figure.....!Shame really, easy used to be a bit like monarch apparently....

macdo 16th Jun 2012 09:41

All you can say about BISH's post, is that Monarch are a proper employer and its a proper job. Particularly for FO's. I'd be surprised if they weren't inundated with applications!

Bergholt 17th Jun 2012 06:13

Monarch may be a proper employer but it all comes at a cost. Monarch reported a 45m loss in the financial year ending 31 October 1011 which necessitated a 75m cash injection from its owners.

MaxPower2011 17th Jun 2012 09:12

Indeed it did, but you could argue this represents a major commitment from the owners. In return significant cost saving and revenue targets were introduced which have been met comfortably, whilst a good employer-employee relationship has been maintained.

On the flip side, the engineering and tour operator companies are making money. The airline is vital to that.
