They had an ad out a couple of months ago. Has anyone gotten calls? If so how long did it take? PMs appreciated.

If you fit the bill you should have got an email invitation for interviews in June.

Good luck!

Hiring will be going on throughout the year. Gearing up for expansion and new duty regs.

Wish they still had a YWG base! I’d be applying.

Heard that Cargojet pilots just signed an LOU for less work days/higher pay.

True or false?

True. Exciting stuff coming up around the corner at CJ.

Pay bumps for starting CA/FO?

Hey Guys,

Are there any Cargojet commuters who can comment on the commuting from YWG?

I understand that Cargojet will provide AC passes, but only for existing employees as new hires are NOT NECESSARILY going to get them.

Your Input is appreciated,

Can anyone at Cargojet give me some details on scheduling?

Average pairing length, and duty times, start finish times?

5pm-2am sort of thing I can see myself doing, 9pm-6am not so much.

PM would work if you don't want to comment here.

Thanks!

Won't work for you with your parameters. 2-8 day pairings, mostly starting around midnight.

Just wondering what time are you generally getting back to YHM? Would it be possible to jump seat to YWG the same night, or will you have to wait until the following night?

You get back into yhm anywhere from 4am to 1pm depending on the pairing. Some pairings you get back in the evening. 8pm to midnight.

Many thanks for the info!

I notice that the YWG flights leave between Midnight and 3:00am. So if I’m understanding correctly, commuting is certainly possible.

Ok...... next question; are there any affordable crash pads, day rooms, hotels or air B and B’s near the airport??

Cheers!

Is it possible to get YMX as a base or it's solely YHM?
