    I worked at Thomsonfly as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay was good and uniform was provided for free

    Cons

    Awful fixed term contracts, couldn’t care about you individually as a staff member was just a number to them. Little room for progression or movement as the company is full of dinosaurs who couldn’t care about there jobs but on old legacy contracts. Even after 4 years of fixed term contract no sign of year round job. The issue with fixed term contracts every you are seen as a new employer, so even after 4 years I got no travel benefits or sick pay for the 1st 3 months (the contract was only 7!!)

    Advice to Management

    Review your contracts as you lose so many amazing crew year on year to different airlines with better contracts

    Cabin Crew Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Luton, East of England, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Thomsonfly (Luton, East of England, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Sales and service orientated activities, clear that the company wants to employ quality people unlike other carriers. Classy!

    During the application, you apply with your CV and a few mandatory questions. You get sent a link for a video interview, where you record your answers to two questions so you can show off your personality.

    On the assessment day, you have to be prepared before the interview, you must write two 30 second PA's to sell an item on the cafe menu and the other for one retail item. You present this to a group of candidates and assessors - having a personality is a must!
    Maths test, don't worry, you can use a calculator followed by a group discussion to assess your communication and negotiation skills.
    If you are able to get through to the second stage of the interview process, you will have some roleplay exercises to demonstrate your sales style and how you deal with unexpected situations.
    The interview is competency based so you should come prepared with your stories.

    It was a really nice day although very quiet for candidate numbers, but that gave us the chance to really shine. Well done Thomson!
