Re: Hiring?

How does fleet selection usually happen?

Do you know what you're being hired onto, is there a seniority draw like AC and then you pick from available types?

How many years for upgrade at the moment? Is there matrix for upgrade? Or seniority based?

Thanks

Pretty sure management decides based on requirements and experience. Seniority in a class is based on an experience matrix.

Upgrade is minimum 5000 hours, seniority based and sitting at 3-4 years right now.

I'll dispel any concerns about being a non french speaker.

I'm an Anglo with poor french language skills (they have improved considerably since I started here) I can rattle off a PA and crack a few jokes en francais.

Been here 6 years and its never been an issue, everyone is really chill about it. There was a time when TS preferred to hire french speakers but there are loads of us Anglos on the property some even in management and training positions. As long as you're open to learning some french and don't mind it being spoken around you, you'll be fine. its been a lot of fun!

Cheers

Anyone apply recently and get a call? Any idea what they are looking/hiring for time? Do they want 704/705 time?

Looks like more hiring into the new year, for the next 4-5 months.

Could someone please explain how the bond is? It is 3 year yes? No pro rated? How much is it for?
Is it true they only want you to pay it back if you use they type rating at another company?

Same type + same seat = bonds apply

Ex: You’re FO737 and you move to Sunwing on the right seat... you pay the bond.

You’re FO737 and manage to get a DEC captain at another company...no bond.
