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.
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.
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.
