Interview AET Thursday

Hi All,

I have my interview on Thursday, and just wondered if anybody has experience of this for the role I am applying for (I am applying to join as an AET)?

I have joined before (16 years ago) so wondering if the process has changed much? questions etc? things to expect?

I am doing my revision as I type regarding the role, squadrons etc etc etc

The recruiting test is the same, but the additional test that AEMs & Tiffs used to take was binned about ten years back.

The selection interview has evolved slightly but has reverted to pretty much the same interview you had 16 years ago. If joining as a Woo. a basic awareness of aircraft types operated now & in the future would do no harm as would a rudimentary knowledge of the training pipeline, squadrons, locations, pay, selection and the contract terms & conditions. Beyond that, the interview is about you.

Since you last joined there is of course the Pre Joining Fitness Test, a much more stringent medical examination and security clearance is applied for online.

If you are undergoing training from scratch, Raleigh is now ten weeks of fun, tears, militarisation and marinisation before you become civilianised and trained as a Woo. ;)

Hi Ninja,

Thanks!

Yeah passed my tests so far. Interview Thursday, Medical two weeks after and then PJFT within two weeks of passing the medical. Then await a date to start and a date for the four day aquaint course.

Yes, got myself fully familiarised with Basic Training (10 weeks at Raleigh), contract length etc, what I will be doing during my preparation course and where at.

Reading up on squadrons, aircraft, and locations of squadrons is a good shout as no doubt they have changed.

Pay I am happy I understand, leave is the same, selection process as in what happens next I am fine with also.

Thanks! Best get reading!! I will post the outcome Thursday

Hi All,

So interview went very well!!

Hi Lead, it was originally meant to be Thursday gone, however Capita kindly cancelled it and moved it back for me. Hence the AFCO brought me in for an interview - which worked out ok.

Just busy going through my security clearance now, or trying to. I have an iMac and its proving a challenge to say the least.
