1500 min, unless you are part of a college mentor program or work from an office or despatch position into flying.

Lol you bagged another one NickyNick! You'll never convince me you're not a troll...or trollette. Despite your comments to the contrary. I'm sure you've hit the 4000 hour mark by now, considering the length of time you've been at this! Poor iflyroads hasn't read your recent history or he would have just ignored you. Keep at it

Do you have trouble being nice? Not sure what issue is with me asking questions. I'm confident you or anyone would be wondering why 3900 hrs isn't enough for right seat in a 705 operation. Please stop the insults.

Nicky,

If ever you're in YYC, I'll buy the beer for the night if you can prove that you are in fact a pilot with 3900hrs. Seriously, the entire night is on me.

I dont really look at peoples profiles on here, I just try help whenever I can with what I know, Im more of a lurker on here.

With respects to ggn hiring requirements I know ppl who have gotten on with 1500 plus hours of nothing but single engine time, and ppl who have gotten on with 3000-5000 hours of bush flying multi piston time and turbine time. Very rarely with less than 1500, those who have gotten on with that were part of the mentor program or worked the office and dispatch for a bit.

Maybe NickyNick just has a bad personality and 3900 hours won't change that.

When people with 1500 hours are getting calls for interviews at Jazz/Encore, my guess is either a bad rap is following him around or his resume just doesn't impress.

Are you saying 3900 hrs mostly on BE20 at one company not impressive enough?

Would 3900 hrs on 6 different aircraft types at 6 different companies be more impressive?

Assuming you are not trolling....
The sense of entitlement you demonstrate is absolutely flabbergasting.

When you say no job offer, does that mean you've done the interview, and are still waiting to hear? Or did they tell you thanks for interviewing but you don't fit our hiring profile, or have they just not called for an interview?

If its the later, you must have screwed up the application, because I got invited to an interview for a DEC position with your hours (in fact my hours were on a BE10, so yours must be 10 better) If you just didn't pass the interview, perhaps take some advice from those around you to improve your personality.

But why Georgian? With your time you should have no problem getting an interview at a q400 operator who offers better wawcon than ggn. (Not that that's saying much!!)

Nickynick if youre infact not just trolling, perhaps the fact you mentioned 1900fo and only a 705 operation has something to do with it. Maybe that's also something you included in your cover letter? If so I suggest reviewing 704/705 regs.

Sorry boys, the offer for a night of free beer only extends to Nicky and his/her 3900 mostly Be20 at one company time. I'll happily go dutch with the rest of you any evening you choose.

No calls for interview, job offer, nothing !

I applied for 1900 FO position, I'm sure I'm well qualified for that position and a sure job offer, still nothing.

Instead of everyone taking time shooting insults at me without actually knowing me, why not shoot the actual requirements for these jobs at me. The requirements all the companies post I meet and exceed but not job offer as of yet.

Exclaiming "no job offer" just off of an application over and over again, shows us how little you know of the working world, let alone your insistence of your "experience". You are a kid in mommies basement getting thrills from people believing you to be a real applicant. It's just weird dude! It's a beautiful sunny day, go outside and have some real human interaction.

NickyNick, if you are indeed not a troll...maybe you should post your resume sans personal info and see what feedback you get here. If you're not getting a call at GGN with 3900 hours, maybe the headshot you attached to your cover letter or the 5 paragraphs talking about your work history at costco when you were 17 years old is the reason you're not getting a call? Did you write it in Comic Sans font? How many pages is it? 5? 6? Please tell me it doesn't have colours other than black. Hours are only part of the equation...

Do you get along well with others? (lol). Are there people at all these companies you've applied at that maybe you had disagreements with in the past?

These days, I just don't think there's such thing as a 3900hr guy who has all his ducks in a row and plays well with others that just can't find a job out there.

You said it best. I guess he missed the rest of my post regarding character. It's not all about hours.
