EasyJet Tests

EasyJet is a European airline focused on short-haul, affordable flights. Founded in 1995 with the aim of revolutionising European air travel, it now has a fleet of over 200 aircraft and is the UK’s largest airline in terms of annual passengers.

Careers at EasyJet

EasyJet is a young, dynamic company and looks for the same in its employees.

It flies to over 30 countries across Europe on short-haul routes, which means quick turnarounds and multiple takeoffs and landings a day. This means that working for EasyJet can be very different from other airlines – it’s great for those who like to be busy and have lots of variety in their schedule.

EasyJet also offers a flexi-contract option for those who have just graduated, or for experienced pilots who would prefer more freedom in their work life.

    Technical Assessment

It is important that you meet the minimum requirements before applying to be a pilot or co-pilot. EasyJet’s minimum criteria for pilots and co-pilots is:

  • Type Rated Captains: minimum 4000 flying hours with 1000 PIC hours
  • Non Type Rated Captains: minimum 4000 flying hours with 1000 PIC hours on jet aircraft over 30T MTOW
  • Type Rated Co Pilots: minimum 500 hours on A320
  • Non Type Rated Co Pilots: minimum 1000 flying hours with 500 hours on aircraft over 10T MTOW

There are additional requirements on each job advertisement, so read the specifications carefully before putting in your application.

When you have found the right position for you, the process looks like this:

  • Online application: Upload your CV and answer some basic questions.
  • Online tests: You will be sent a link to complete verbal and numerical reasoning tests online.
  • Assessment centre: Around 12 pilots at a time will be invited to this assessment day. You will have the opportunity to learn more about the role, take part in group exercises, and do a competency-based interview.
  • Technical assessment: This will be a simulator test to assess your standard of flying.
  • Online tests for pilots: If you’re applying to be a captain, the final stage is an online psychometric questionnaire.

Online application

The online application will ask for your CV to check your past experience. There are also some competency questions to answer. For these, it is important to have a good understanding of the requirements of the role and of the company’s values, which are:

  • Safety: We never compromise on safety

  • Simplicity: We cut out the things that don’t matter to keep us lean and make it easy

  • One team: Together we’ll always find a way

  • Integrity: We stand by our word and do what we say

  • Passion: We have a passion for our customers, our people and the work we do

  • Pioneering: We challenge to find new ways to make travel easy and affordable

Keep these in mind when answering the application questions, so that you can show how you will fit the company both technically and culturally.

EasyJet numerical reasoning test

One of the online tests that are given to those applying for the co-pilot role is a numerical reasoning test. These assess your ability to work with numerical data, not just basic numeracy.

EasyJet uses the test publisher Cut-e for its assessments. Its numerical tests are usually 12 minutes long and you will have to complete as many tasks as possible out of the 37 presented.

You will be asked to provide true or false answers to statements regarding the data given, testing your numerical dexterity, logic skills, and ability to work quickly and methodically under pressure. The best preparation method is to practice Cut-e numerical reasoning tests, to get an understanding of the structure of the tests.

EasyJet verbal reasoning test

The other online assessment used by EasyJet is a verbal reasoning test. These assess your complex language and communication skills by asking you to interpret text-based information.

Like the numerical reasoning tests, EasyJet uses Cut-e verbal reasoning tests, which are also 12 minutes long. The difference is that there are 49 tasks and you are not expected to complete all of them.

You can take practice Cut-e verbal reasoning tests to get a better understanding of how the tests are structured and how to improve your score. Unlike many other verbal reasoning tests, they do not include large paragraphs of information, but are complex in their own way.

Practicing is the best way to prepare and you can try other practice verbal reasoning tests to sharpen your skills before the test proper.

The tests were well suited to the job that I’ve applied for. They are easy to do and loads of them.

Assessment centre

If you pass the online tests, you will be invited to attend the next available assessment centre.

This is an opportunity to meet EasyJet staff and the other candidates to get a better understanding of the company culture, the people you will be working with, and see how you perform in a group setting.

Typically, the day will start with informative presentations about EasyJet and the chance to ask questions regarding the job specifics and expectations of the role. Then you will have to take part in group activities.

Often these are simple tasks like ranking important qualities in a pilot and working through a hypothetical emergency situation. EasyJet is looking for social cohesion and a good balance between being a strong team player and taking on leadership when necessary.

If you haven’t attended one before, then have a look at some assessment centre tips to help you know what to expect.

Then you will be invited to take part in an interview. This is mostly competency-based, so they will go over your past experience and often ask questions such as:

  • Tell me about a time you made a mistake or bad decision
  • Have you ever had to deal with a confrontation?
  • How have you shown adaptability in the past?

It is important to refamiliarise yourself with the EasyJet company values again, so you can show how you embody them and why you want to work for EasyJet.

Non-technical assessments

There are a raft of non-technical pilot tests, which are all used to ensure that you have the social and mental skills required to be a great pilot.

One type of aptitude test that you may be asked to complete at the assessment day is a spatial awareness test. These assess your ability to conceptualise shapes and objects in both 2D and 3D, often asking you to rotate, mirror, or translate shapes into different perspectives.

Although spatial awareness can be seen as an innate skill, you can definitely improve your abilities through practice spatial awareness tests.

For those applying to be a Captain, the final stage of your application will also be a non-technical assessment in the form of a personality test. These identify your defining traits, values, and priorities, giving employers an idea of how you might respond to different situations and what kind of temperament that you have.

Although these are not based on any kind of past experience or qualifications, it is still a good idea to practice them. Practicing personality tests can help you get a better understanding of the types of questions asked and how they are phrased – they can sometimes be deliberately tricky in their wording, so practicing them can help you give the answers most reflective of yourself.

However, you should also keep in mind the company values and what you know about the type of people it seeks, so your answers can show how you reflect these values. If you are still unsure about how to tackle these, have a look at our tips for personality tests.

Technical assessments

The final stage for co-pilots is the technical assessment. This is given as a flight simulator assessment, which will test your standard of flying, as well as other practical skills like multi-tasking and hand-eye coordination.

You will receive a full briefing about this and the expectations of the day beforehand, so make sure that you read all of the information carefully and prepare accordingly.
