Re: Job interview with JET2....help needed!

hello!

Update time! The interview went really well, It was a good laugh, there were 35 people there and 8 got through the assessments and tests etc on to one-to-one interviews....and I was one of them! I'm off work today with a delightful chest infection but I could find out from today onwards if I got the job!

Thanks for all the advice

Hmm, different cultures and people. Have you seen Jet2's route network - all short haul European. Lot of typical Brit haunts. Not knocking Jet2 though - good airline showing strong growth.

Sorry to be a bit negative but are you sure you know what you're getting into Kimberley? Cabin crew is not the best job in the world. You'll have rapid airport turnarounds so, whilst you'll enjoy travel benefits, don't expect to see too much of the world whilst working. The job is hard and as has been pointed out, very service and retail focused. This is not glamour. However, your primary function - though not on a day-to-day basis one trusts! - is safety so be prepared for the training.

Having said all that. it's horses fopr courses I guess so if it's really what you want to do good luck with it. And if you want to learn more about what it's like to work at Jet2 and other airlines check out the Cabin Crew forum on www.pprune.org


Cheers.

Andy

Re: Job interview with JET2....help needed!

I'm fully aware it is not the best job in the world, but it's something i want to do, I've just finished uni and want to do it whilst I have nothing stopping me and yes I have seen the route network, i'd hardly have gone to the interview not knowing that. Mmmmm I don't even know if I've got the job yet!

Good luck to you - if it's what you want to do, hope you get the job. That pprune site may well be useful - lots of crew contribute so you can get some insight into working conditions etc and compare against experiences of those working for other airlines.

Re: Job interview with JET2....help needed!

Your best bet is asking on the following boards at the pprune forums.
Lot's of cabin crew and pilots for many airlines will be able to help you out there.

Ahhh, I'm a bit late now! I worked for them as Cabin Crew for a year back in 2007 at MAN. It was good fun, money was pretty good too....

But beware for the first 6 weeks when you are training you only get between £550 - £600 as you don't get any commission or your hourly flight pay until you actually start flying....they don't tell you that until your first day either! After that I usually got around £1400 - £1500 after tax and usually worked less than 30 hours a week.

The maths test isn't really a test! More like currency conversion with a calculator...about 3 questions out of a 50 question test! It's mainly geography, landmarks, currency etc. Really easy!

When you first arrive you have a face and full length photo taken, then you have to stand up in front of the group (15 - 30) people and and talk about yourself and then decribe your most embarassing memory.

The you'll be split into groups and given 2 - 3 exercises to do, from what I can remember they were scenarios involving who to put on a lifeboat with 10 spaces when you have 20 people. One was a priest and the other was Madonna?! There is no right answer, they are just looking at how you work as a team! Just look for quiet people in your group and try an involve them! Save your really good points for when the interviewer is nearby as they walk all around the room!

You then break for lunch and go back to the room where they tell you if you have been sucessful in getting through to the 1-1 interview stage, only 8 people got through from our group!

You then have to try on a uniform so they can see how you look in it then have a 15 minute interview. If you get this far, I'd assume you've got it. I don't know of anyone who failed the interview stage...it's more of a formality! Questions were along the lines of, how would you feel about cleaning up? How would you deal with a rowdy group of lads on a 1am flight back from Ibiza and if it was a cold winter morning at 3am, how would you mitivate yourself. Really easy common sense stuff!

Good luck! Let me know how you get on!

K
