Swoop then Asia?

#1 Post by Jia » Sun Apr 29, 2018 8:43 am

I have heard through a recent Asian recruiter Swoop may not be a pathway to Asian carriers. He mentioned to friend that integrity is big issue with a Chinese carriers and that one would be advised Not to follow that road? He would not advise. Has any other pilot in my position heard a similiear comment from agencies? Should I avoid my Swoop interview this case?

Thank you
Jia

You should avoid your swoop interview for many reasons this just being one more reason in the bucket...
In case you need one more 🤨

Swoop:
The anal sweat that usually results from a long, strenuous workout. It smells like poop, but lacks the color and consistency.
“After finishing the 10k, my undershorts were laden with swoop.”

It smells like an airline yet lacks the amazing working conditions and wages we have come to expect in Canada

Team teal mainliners have to have someone to make fun of. What is it, like 16 years for an upgrade now?

What a crock. It may be difficult to believe but few foreigners have heard of WestJet outside of Canada let alone a blacklist of some carrier called swoop.

It would be interesting to see the posts about WestJet when it first started... Was this forum around? I bet it sounded very similar.
Middle East and Asian airlines are parking aircraft due to lack of crew. I'm sure they care about swoop. I bet Air Canada, Transat and Sunwing will hire you from swoop if they need the people and you interview well.

Tell the captain checking you he can't smoke in the flightdeck. See how your next sim goes when he shows up. Did you mention something about integrity? Go to swoop and be worry free.

So obviously some lame attempt from the OP to try to stop people from applying for swoop.

Let’s not forget too that the fastest way to Air Canada is Westjet Encore. Morals go out the window when you have to fill seats. Where is Air Canada’s union? Not looking out for Jazzers that are getting screwed.

Integrity is just another 9 letter word in Asia.
