Hey magicb, just completed my first interview and I think I did relatively OK, aced the voice test though. Just wanted to check what's the rough lead time to know the outcome of the first interview?

hi what's the voice test about? what do u need to do?

I went for my first round of interview last week. I was one of the last interviewees for that day. The interview sessions really short and the interviewers look bored. Just received an email from them that my application was no successful.

Did anyone else failed their first interview as well? Is it possible to reapply? I am looking to reapply for the next year Feb intake.

What do you suppose your reasons for failing the interview are? I haven't got a request to interview yet :(

Yes it is possible to reapply after failing your first interview. I know controllers who have failed their first interview and applied later on successfully.

Thank you for your reply! Good to know that there's still hope for me! What are your tips for the interview? I have no idea why I have failed the interview. I think i did alright for the voice test.

I have no idea why i failed the interview hahaha. the interviewers just looked bored when interviewing me. [-X

Maybe you can drop an email to the HR to enquire about your status? I received a call from them about 2 weeks after I took the test.

Honestly, I have no idea how one passes the first interview. Friends who I think would have been good ATCOs have also been unsuccessful at your stage.

I don't really know what their deciding criterias are, but unfortunately, interviews are largely based on first impressions and presentation.

So my advice would be to work better at representing yourself and your interest in the job.

As a CAAS ATC, is there still the subsidy for getting a CAAS PPL? If so, what's the percentage subsidised?

I love aviation and flying so would be a bonus to be subsidised given how expensive it is to get a PPL!

Yes there is a subsidy for getting a PPL, 90% will be sponsored by the company once you have passed your first rating. Upon getting your PPL, the sponsorship will be reduced to 50%.
