First, take off the tie...put some pants on....brush the gel out of your hair. Let the kids out of the locked bedroom.

Then sit silently for awhile and just think about what you've done.

Maybe cry a little.

Log into AvCanada and see if some jackass has posted something sarcastic on your topic instead of helpful advice.

In person interview with one pilot and one HR. Typical tell me about a time question. You do a technical exam on a ipad that was not too hard.

Jean-Pierre, am I to understand you’ve interviewed? I only ask because I also noticed your ALPA avatar. What do you understand of the present Westjet Mainline/Encore & Swoop Pilot conversation?

Curious to know what company the interviewing pilot works for? WJ on a LOA?

I believe you may be confusing bullying with being confronted with truth. Both do however make you feel uncomfortable.

Questioning isn't bullying.

When you apply at Swoop you are applying at Westjet. And you don't even need to argue that. Westjet pilot and ALPA will do that for you.

Commence the bullying in 3..2...1...
What are you talking about, are you living under a rock for the last couple months? WJ ALPA has put a blacklist on Swoop pilots and ACPA pilots have called for the same at AC!
Have I been trolled here? Seriously, I don’t think anyone could be that dense!

Give it a rest man! "Have I been trolled?" "Have I been trolled?". Yes. You're on the show "PUNKED" and Ashton whatever his name is was out to get you, Swoop is in as well.

People can do what they want. Jean-Pierre has no interest taking your (and others') bait.

Hey Hans, foxtrot oscar!
You seem to insinuate that I’m constantly saying this, why don’t you search my posts for that exact phrase and tell me how often I’ve said that, k.
Next, to believe jean pierre is a long time Jazz pilot and based on his avatar he’s been there since pre 2010 negotiations, so perhaps he’s just “trolling” but clearly you have a problem with that phrase, might I suggest you get some professional help for rage issues😳
Hope you’re enjoying your new job, I’m betting there are some Captains that are glad you left, what do you think?
