Pasco is looking for Captains and FOs. They were offering bonuses in the last version of the job add but not this one. CMA also seem to be looking for Captains and FOs for all of their machines. Looks like the pilot shortage is working its way into the smaller operators as AC hires 500/yr!

I imagine the bonus for YYC based folks was to compete with Encore.

"I can confirm both cma and Pasco aren't hiring [ME]".

Qualify your statements. You should add disclaimers that you are unemployable in the aviation industry.

I’d interview at both and see what I one offers you the job... If you get both, here’s my .02 : ( alot of which is second hand so take it or leave it)

PASCO:

-Prep for the interview!!! ( lots on this topic within the avcan realm) their interviews seem to rival that of Cathay to fly a B1900 / SF340. I’ve never done the interview .. know many who have with 705 CMD / training CPT positions who weren’t selected.
-PASCO loves flight instructors !!
-More of a lifestyle type of job
- Small company .. small company politics
-commuting thing a MAJOR bonus
-pretty awesome places to fly
-lots of improvement with respect to treatment of pilots
- tries to retain their employees

CMA

- likely quicker upgrades than PASCO
- some will make it a lifestyle job.. dunno how
-“ Interesting” management ( putting it very lightly)
- shady industry history - union busting etc
- small company politics
-by in large .. not a place to hang your hat =quicker movement but conversely = unhappier employees
-not as stable as PASCO
- MGMT does not care about employee retention
