Recruitment Process
last update
Three stages: Stage 1: online maths, verbal reasoning and personality tests emailed to you to be completed at home in your own time prior to the interview day (they will include the tests in your invite to interview email) Stage 2: Interview. You will be mixed in with others who have applied for the same position (Capt or FO). They will start off with a presentation on the company and the various positions they have available ( 70%/100% and temporary contracts). Following this there is an interview usually with two pilots. The interviewers can be of any rank from FO up to Chief Pilot. Generally a relaxed chat with the standard interview questions. Stage 3: Simulator If you have applied for a 737 position this will usually be on the 737-300. Likewise 757 candidates will be assessed on the 757. You will be with two management pilots, one operating the sim and one as your PM. All they are looking for is a good level of competency and the ability to improve. If you make a mistake or have a bad start don't worry, they will give you the opportunity to fix it and show what you have to offer. 13/Apr/16
