If that's true, Dan, the time-wasting is breathtaking.

I refuse to have anything more to do with him/it/her whatever.

Life's too short! I spent the day on the slopes, but wishing I was on a boat......I'm sure you can relate. :)

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

When I did mine, it was about 1 week to hear back from them. Overall I enjoyed the experience. Staff is very nice and friendly. Wish everyone all the best! :D

About 2 weeks for me. Then I was placed in the hiring pool, still waiting for a start date.

Just wondering if anyone has any insight on how GGN calls people for GS. I have been recently placed in a pool, and am waiting a GS date. I understand there are quiet a number of people in the pool. Just wondering if they call people in order of interview date or in order of experience?

Also is there a bid of sorts that comes out to show vacancies/or up coming ground schools? if so when is the next one?

Thanks

R1 and GGN no longer have any commercial relationship. GGN now source their aircraft through AC via leasing companies. Almost all former Jazz operated CRJ200's.

7303 - CRJ-200 C-GKEP AFS Investments V Inc. (Jazz Aviation LP, Enfield, NS)
Registered to Air Georgian Ltd., Mississauga, ON 04-Apr-2016.

This is the 9th CRJ-200 to move from Jazz Aviation to Air Georgian.

Well that's 9 RJ-200's moved in last 6 months - might only be 1 more to come over and then their growth spurt could soon be over or are they getting 12 so 3 more?

GGN will have a total of 18 CRJ (12 200's 6 100's) - 16 will be used for Air Canada CPA work. Two old 100's will be used for charters or returned to Avmax.

Avmax still owns 50% of Air Georgian

Stay away. If your goal is ac, then go to jazz and sky for the pml. Georgian is not only a horrible company, but i know numerous pilots who have worked there and it was the biggest mistake they made. Some were lucky and made it on but a small percentage. Currently most if not all are interviewing elsewhere as soon as their bond is up. At a time where all are hiring the last place you should settle for is ggn.

First post eh? Are you possibly a disgruntled former employee? What was their reason for feeling it was the "biggest mistake ever"?

No... thankfully... but I see those clowns and the passengers they leave behind in Terminal 1 now and then. The disgruntled employees can easily be found in their crew room. GGN is literally dragging Air Canada's name through the mud here.

They are cancelling a lot of flights recently. Go look at the departures boards at T1 if you don't believe me. Jazz is covering tons of their former routes again. Don't know if it's a pilot shortage or maintenance issue with airplanes or what.

The only washout is the company who's flying broken down rj's with ridiculous attrition rates that you seem to be so well educated on. Ggn is an absolute joke and what they make passengers go through is horrible. Just take a stroll down that terminal late one night. now that Jazz is gone its apparent how incompetent ggn is. Only a matter of time before they run out of candidates then nicky nick will have a crack at flying a giant deferral.
