Air North ad...

Post by Pat Richard » Tue Aug 13, 2019 9:49 pm

An insight into ego's in charge of that place.

They should be reminded that they aren't and never have been the top.of any AME's wish list of places to work.
They can't even keep locals on staff or apparently recruit them.

And oh yeah there's a nationwide shortage so you will get the shitiest of crumbs if you even do.

Like the honesty though, Im sure most won't waste THEIR TIME on bothering with that 2 tent circus.

Enjoy all the overseas resumes.

HA HA HA HA HA.....

well at least he is honest. I find the job ads written by the DOM are the most informative. usually its "looking for an AME Dash-8 endorsed in YUL. $45hr." pretty much all the information you usually need.
when HR writes an ad its 4 paragraphs of gobbledygook without the aircraft type or what airport the job is located at.

A perfect example of what I was talking about. no aircraft type, no location, and no mention of compensation.
not super crazy about the shift either. you are going to spend 2 of those 6 days off catching up on sleep.

Well, after a quick look at their site, it's based out of calgary and the types they operate are listed there.

As for the shifts, you work 8 days, off 6, work 8days, off 6, work 8 nights, off 6 and work 8 nights.

seems legit.

Wow MZUNGO - do you just like to complain to for the sake of complaining?

A little research on your part easily finds the answers. As mentioned above - they only have one base - YYC and their fleet is close to 50 aircraft of all shapes and sizes. I agree the shift seems odd, but from what I know - the guys there LOVE that shift and it's really not as bad as it sounds. As for compensation - it is very good. Sunwest is one of the best 703/704 operaters out there and while I was there I was very happy.

What happened to the Air North discussion? I know some Air North employees and they are happy, they live up behind the Airport Chalet have a 3 min commute to work, go home for lunch, are treated quite well, make decent money, have airline passes, Love the Yukon, and wouldn't trade it for any job "Outside"

there is missing the point , then there is this.
what I was getting at was, the HR people usually fill up the page with words but none of them are relevant to what an AME needs to know.
I don't need my time wasted the same way the guy at Air North doesn't want his wasted.
2 of the most important pieces of information are, what type of aircraft and where is the job.

it has nothing to do with Sunwest, they just happened to post an ad that proved my point.

The most meaningful information an employer can post never will be; the turn over for the past five years compared to the previous five years and the five years before that. If it is going downhill you are not the pick of the litter.

Owners blame this on the staff. "Spoiled", "lazy", and "greedy", are thrown around freely. "I hired an idiot as a manager", or "I can't stop micromanaging my maintenance", are never used.

This may come as a shock to certain owners, but complaining about maintenance staff costs is not a pep talk. Your staff aren't stupid. Anyone with the experience you advertise for knows the maintenance average in the industry. They know if you are getting a good deal or not.
