No signs of slowing yet (Job Ads)

I watch the employment page pretty much daily. Not looking for a job, but I find it's a good barometer for the job market.

The last couple days had job ads on page 2 on their second day. Not a whole lot of exposure for these people anymore as the jobs don't sit on page 1 for months on end.

Re: Evas

First year captain working 110hrs per month would get $73,548/year gross based on a typical EVAS schedule with no picking up shifts. Or you could live a 3-hours drive away in YYT and make $80k/year flying 850 hours a year as a Dash captain... Or for the YHZ based, stay YHZ based and make $70k/year ...

Re: Evas

What does the straight time mean? Salary/1200? Straight time is the salary in the above grid divided by 1200 to obtain an hourly rate. 84 hrs / month are included in the salary rate. If you work 110 (typical at EVAS) you get paid...... your monthly salary/12 + your salary/1200x26. First year captai...

Likely to the local Loblaws. There is very little movement at the moment. I'm an example, 6000+ hrs king air captain trying to land 705 position.

Re: DOH merge.

I would not say it is fun to work at Air Canada, as a pilot. It can be fun, at times, but for the most part it is a grind. We work very, very hard and I think this is why many focus on the money. That said, I have my life away from work and wouldn’t really want the 2,3,4-day layovers away from my f...
