Before you start

There are a few things you’ll need to bring along:

Step 1 –Registration at the Open Day
Check the careers page on Wizz Air’s website for the details of the Open Day you’re interested in attending.
The full address is provided and registration commences at 09.00 sharp.
Remember if you’re late you may not be allowed to stay for the event!
It’s best to plan your day well in advance so you can arrive on time (if not a little early!) and appear calm and unflustered.
Be prepared to be patient during the day. There may well be a lot of candidates, and fairly lengthy queues during the registration process.
Step 2 – Activities
After your documents have been checked you’ll be invited to take part in some activities.
These usually consist of:
The open day is similar to the assessment days that other airlines sometimes use. There will be ‘cuts’ during the day with only the best candidates being invited to stay for interview.
It pays to be prepared and stand out!
Our Assessment Day eBook has lots of advice that is relevant to open days too, as many of the activities you’ll be asked to participate in will be the same.
There could be a very large amount of candidates, so please be aware that the day could end up being a long one!
Step 3 – The Interview
This Cabin Crew Interview will normally last around 30 minutes and contains more questions to assess your suitability for the role. It gives you the opportunity to prove yourself to the recruiters and give detailed answers to show that you have the skills that they are looking for.
The Interview is the last Assessment
This is your big chance to convince the recruiters that YOU are the person that the airline wants on their crew. It’s never too early to get ready.
Following the interview your whole application and performance will be considered.
The airline will get back to you either way to let you know if you’ve been offered a position – try not to panic if it seems to be taking an agonisingly long time as they do have a lot of candidates to consider.
There are a few checks that the airline needs to carry out before they can officially offer you employment.
The checks will include following up references, criminal record checks, your financial history and your work background for the last five years (including any gaps).
You’ll also be asked to have a basic medical examination carried out to ensure that you’re fit to fly.
Following this, if the checks are successful, you’ll be given a date to begin your pre-flight training!
