On the 737 at WestJet mainline, take home pay varies greatly depending on %ESP you put in.

if you do the full 20% your take home pay WILL be around 2000$/month. It is very sad.
Do you have to participate in the esp? What would the take home be with minimal esp?

Days worked

How many days per month can a new fo expect to work? Also can anyone say what an average take home pay is per month for year one?

Re: Jazz YHZ Base Rumours

The -100's are going to YYC to cover the ex-ggn 1900 routes. There is a significant amount of Q400 flying into and out of YHZ. The lack of bid and memo that came out said that they were NOT opening a yhz base. Its a lot of work and cost to do that if its not going to last. I wondered what they were...

A job is a job. No harm in taking this job while still applying for other flying positions at the same time. If no one else calls and you end up flying with this company? Great! If you work the ramp for a month and get a flying position somewhere else? Great! In my opinion it's better to have a job ...

Just wondering when this 60% class component of Express candidates for AC PIT course takes effect? The July 22nd class was all OTS, so clearly not yet. Just curious. Thanks.
It's 60% annually as far as I know. So they're allowed to do some classes that are all OTS

Re: New hire bids

To be fair, at least AC gives you a few days to figure it out and talk it over with the ones who it’ll affect. Jazz was just a simple “you got 24 hours good luck”, which to me was unexpected. Isn’t the equipment draw at AC day 3? Compared to day 2 at Jazz. And you have lots of time to talk it over ...

Re: New hire bids

How can a company expect you to take a job where you don't find out your base until after the first day of training. That is sketch. You know the bases before you even apply and you know there's a risk of not getting what you want. Don't apply if that's sketch. That's a question they ask in the int...

Like what's been said already. If it's AC you'll be able to get back to YVR fairly quickly. Jazz, hopefully don't get on the classic and you'll be back fairly quickly as well

WRONG. A seniority merger will happen. No Air Canada Express operator flys aircraft with more than 75 seats, and one will NOT be set up that does. Its crazy to think for even a second that there will be another airline with a separate pilot list flying around in large jets owned by AC. The Contract...
