Can't give away too much info but like any interview make sure you know stuff about the company.....beyond just ifr, vfr, and fss. Other than that it's a lot like the phone interview. You guys will do great!

I thought I'd heard about an April start? I could be wrong though.
Yea at first the lady said March/April but then in September she send me a new email saying not until July. So I am hoping that has changed!!

Good luck with the interview! Prepare a few smart questions to ask them (what would you say is the biggest obstacle for trainees, or about their new satellite technology and what that might mean for future ATC). The technology is very fascinating anyways! HR lady will be Dawn but I forgot the other 2 names.

It sounds like a VFR class started in September so an April start is unlikely. Classes do not run back to back like that.

Hey everyone!

Have been busy doing a few trip back and forth to Hong Kong, haven’t had the chance to check back here.

Interview coming up the day after tomorrow. I’m a nervous wreck!

Wanderlust: sounds like your interview went great! You will know in a week?!?! Wow that’s fast!!! Can’t wait to hear your good news.

Willis: Any updates on your status?

yah I think she said end of the week or early next week whether I passed or not.
Not sure when/if stream will be assigned at the same time. I think stream is assigned late?
Lisa, any input on that?

Honestly, they were very nice...

They will ask you to talk about yourself.
what stream you would like and why
5-6 behavioural questions "describe a time when"
and basic knowledge about the company

after they talked about the upcoming courses, general info, and asked if I had any questions for them.
it was pretty straight forward!

good luck and let us know how it goes!!!

I wasn’t too confident with my interview when it was over lol so I’m sure you did better than you think!

I was assigned a stream the same day I got the green light...about 2 weeks after my interview...it asked me to upload a headshot and as soon as I did that my stream of fic showed up. Anothe 2 weeks or so before getting the course offer. That was totally by email. They’ve changed the website since then so I’m not sure if it’s still like that.

Good luck with your interview wos!

Morning all-

Just checked the Work Day site and my application has updated to “eligible for offer”
I’m thinking this means I passed the interview?
But it doesn’t indicate which stream I’ve been put in.

WoS, good luck today!! Let us know how it goes.

I guess there’s no area on the new site to indicate what stream you got?!

Congrats Wanderlust! You must have done very well!!! They couldn’t wait to pass you!!!! 👏🏻 Hope you will get training offer for the stream you picked! Was it VFr??

I don’t think I did that well, I anticipated more questions so I was saving some stuff to talk about in other questions, but suddenly they were done. Lol. But I’m just glad is all done.

WoS,

I’m sure you did great!!
I did that exact same thing... had examples to use and then the questions were done! I also had some examples I’d saved to use for certain questions which I used at the wrong times LOL then the question would come where I thought it would have been a good answer... and I had to think up a different example on the spot. Definitely felt awkward in many moments.

Let us know what happens! I don’t know if they show stream anymore?! And yes VFR is my first choice. :)
What about you??

I’m hoping to be streamed for IFR.

Did you get a notification email from Workday to check your account for update when you got your pass?

Keep all of us posted! Hopefully offers will go out soon :)

That's what I thought too, that you would get a notification email from Workday.

Maybe shoot Dawn an email and ask what stream you are in?

Hi Wanderlust. Just wondering if you can clarify something for me. My account also says "Eligible for offer." Did Dawn say that means we passed the interview and would be moving into the training pool? If so, how long until we are actually notified of that? Thanks.

If it’s anything like before, moving onto the next step keeps your application valid for 18 months. If you are loaded onto a class, you will find out a few months before your start date.

An IFR and VFR class started a few months ago, and an FSS/FIC class started shortly after. The training picture is looking good right now so they probably won’t start anything until well into the new year.

yes you are correct, you have passed the interview - congrats!
My email from Dawn says this:

"At this time you have been added to the pool, the stream has not yet been confirmed and would not be until you receive an offer."

So I guess now we just wait for a potential offer. They did say that they like to get offers out 2-3 months prior to start date so people can get their lives together etc.

Hi all-

exciting news! I just got an IFR offer, starting in April!
I have many mixed emotions.. I was REALLY hoping for VFR because of my aviation passion.
Additionally, the high fail rate really scares me.... but I am EXCITED! and nervous also.

Can't wait to hear if anyone else got offers!!!
