Got an Interview (12/15/2015) set up from attending the Vets in Blue a few weeks ago. Got the "packet" emailed to me and noticed on the first page that there will be "Psychomotor testing and an aptitude-based assessment." Ive checked all the jetBlue gouge and no one from past interviews mentions this. Is this new?? If not what is this all about? Any gouge would be appreciated!! just want to prepare as best I can.

Interesting. My packet for the same day doesn't mention anything about that. Hope there are no surprises. When did you do your phone interview?

They are making interviewees take the Gateway 7 assessment starting in December for data collection. Apparently it will not be part of your interview package and whether you will get hired or not. You can't really study for it.

This is because JB has asked the pilots to take the assessment and we have refused. Our MEC is totally against this program and has asked pilots not to participate in any way.

So, now JB is giving the assessment to new-hires, and apparently now interviewees. You have no choice if you want to work here.

Not surprising this is brought to you by a United quota-hire. Who needs to hire experienced pilots??? Not JB.

Sometimes I think JB management does these outrageous things just to have negotiation collateral.

Sounds like it's similar to the Air Force AFOQT/TBAS for AF pilot candidates if it's an aptitude and psychomotor skills test. Perhaps they think if it works for the premier ab initio pilot training institution in the world, it will work for JetBlue. Apples and oranges in the training programs, though.

Were you singing the AF theme while you wrote that?

I don't think "a few sims" meets the rigor of a year at UPT. People pass the AF initial screening and wash out of UPT all the time. My bet is those people will still end up at Jetblue.
