In line with the wetlease operations Brussels airlines has contracted to Cityjet, there has and is an active search for cabincrew to be based in Zaventem.

Nobox outsourcing has taken on the assesment task and more.
Crew will be working for Nobox Ireland and not on a Cityjet contract, at significantly lower wages and conditions than on a Cityjet contract and on a temporary contract of 1 year.
Nobox is a company owned by Crewlink/Dalmac who outsources thousands of RYANAIR crew.

They are also looking for Amsterdam
Based crew since August, but do not seem to find ample candidates as many applicants walk out during the assessment due to the offered salary package ..

Indeed and they all offer far better conditions. it is a shame that Cityjet decides to walk the Ryanair path of crewlink stuff that is famous for exploiting crews at poverty level wages.
Not really how to find quality crew that have to work to the high level of Brussels Airlines..

Maybe that's why CityJet won the contract. Many other airlines were interested in a wet-lease for SN, but they lost because they were offering better conditions to their crew.

And indeed, CityJet is Irish, just like Ryanair!

Aaiiight, indeed but mr Sciot claims that the choice made was not based on the 'cheapest offer' 😉😉

As I see the company is constantly looking for new cabin crew. Every month they post new job offers with assessment days in every of their bases. I'm wondering, why?
It means they should contract every month about 4-6 people and I don't think they have so many routes or clients to need so many workers...

I'm asking because I would like to go to the assessment day planned in February for Brussels, but as I know, they made interviews in December and January as well... Do they really need so many cabin crew or they just don't choose anyone on the assessment day and they keep searching?

Does somebody know what happens?

Sometimes you don't have choice, many companies will never choose you because of your nationality (for example in Spain), so... Any advice about CityJet? Shall I expect they will call me after the interview or they will just make a new one making hope to another people?

If it’s your dream to fly, go for it! Airlines like cityjet, Ryanair and EasyJet are good stepping stones into the industry. Most of the time not for a long time career though

Thank you for tour support, sean1982, but it still doesn't say anything about CityJet and doesn't help me with my doubt...

I think that all companies offer now worse conditions than before, but flying is cheaper as well...

I don’t work for them so don’t have many specifics, but basically you work for a contract agency who “rents” you it to cityjet. You’ll get paid for every flying hour and don’t have a basic pay and operate on behalf of Brussels airlines. The fact that they recruit so much, is probably due to the high turn over, which is quite normal for these type of contracts. Like a said ... a stepping stone, but not for longer than 2-3 years unless you can climb the ladder

On glassdoor you can reed more positive than negative opinions, the ex-workers complain only about lack of communication between company and them... Is it so bad to "avoid" the company? CityJet let you work for most important European airlines and I don't think they pay worse than Ryanair. Or SmallPlanet :lol:
