Hey Brian,

Inquiring about how much flight time you're looking for in a captain. Also, would you consider right to left after a certain time? 1000TT here.

Thanks

I can work with 1000TT. It really comes down to what kind of experience. And yes of course to your second part!

I recently interviewed for the SIC position with HR and then with Brian.

For the people complaining about the pay, when compared to similar positions and aircraft, their starting pay is higher than what other operators are offering. Also, because they are not an aviation company, their benefits package is better than you would get from a 703 operator.

When I met with Brian he showed me the airplanes and I did see the new Garmin avionics in the one plane. He was easy to talk to and seems very fair and approachable. He did show me the schedule and all the flights posted were within a week or more so plenty of notice for the crew.

The high turnaround is everywhere, not just at Evertz. As long as AC is hiring as many as they are no pilot is sitting in their seat for a long time.

For the people who are not chasing metal and who want a flying position that offers a great home/family balance this is the place to be without a doubt.
Brian sounds great and seems like a decent enough job, i'm just going to be devil's advocate here;

There is no turnaround in a lot of corporate aviation. Every massive corporation has an aviation department, go to the corporate forum on here and see all the guys clamoring to get in with big companies, Tim Hortons, Minto, etc. How come there is never any jobs at those companies, and when the stars align every 5 years a post comes out and it's usually filled within a week.

You see postings asking how a captain with jet time can work with (insert any company here) and the response is "In the off chance they're hiring, be at the right place at the right time", not exactly the way you should expect companies to be with crazy turnover in the corporate world.

Its simple. If Evertz operated Jets in Canada, job openings would be few and far between. You are not going to get paid a jet captain wage on a King Air. Its nothing against the work condition or lifestyle at Evertz. Its the nature of the business. Everyone wants to make 150k +/Year. Flying a King Air will never give you that.

What would a first officer and captain expect to get paid for a king air in southern Ontario, just curious and I don't mean just Evertz but all operators that fly the King air .
Thanks

My application was in a few days ago. No reply. Not sure what they are looking for. Looks to me like they are going with low timers to keep costs down. With my experience I would have thought there would have been interest.

Hey Marakii, did you apply? How’s the job search going? When it comes to salaries, I think it’s best if you apply and find out through the interview process. Then you can decide if the WAWCON are acceptable to you.

Good luck

To live in southern Ontario and own property anywhere near the GTA requires (last I saw) 120k+ dollars household to be comfortable. Kinda makes it tough to live a classic lifestyle with one partner at home unless you want to commute in from the sticks.

It's no wonder people are clamoring for jet jobs and leaving turboprops behind unfortunately. Might as well just overpay the position, keep the King Air and have cream of the crop long term pilots.

I'm sure Brian is strategizing to keep it crewed though.

Exactly, imagine the amount of initial training and time $ it takes to keep that door revolving. Quantify that number, and pay it to your flight crews, you'd be the best kept secret in the GTA. You'd never be looking for crews again.

Sadly most corporations are just interested in the flight department for tax write-offs to claim losses. You can't claim losses on salary... Just really nice hangar Queens, avionics mods and training expenses.

That new job ad was much better. But like everyone is saying, stop being a stone people step on. The best kept secret it could be. The Glassdoor reviews on the non flying side are that it's an ok place to get experience but not a long term career. The chief complaint is the low pay across the board. From what I hear in the rumour mill is that the flight department is no different, on the very low side. Just know it's a path to bigger and better and now that the industry is the way it is keep on stepping. Don't go their with aspirations of the best kept secret in the GTA. Maybe one day, just not now.

On Glassdoor, "CEO" seems to have quite a few red and yellow marks beside them as well in the reviews tab.

140 reviews and I looks like they have a lot of job ads out for the business side of the house.

Maybe you can explain to all why your HR department hasn't contacted high time king air captains with corporate experience? Looks like you want a low timer who will be a slave to you!

I'm sure Brian doesn't regret skipping over that resume. If he hasn't gotten to it yet, likely just bin it.

I don’t see the job posted on their website anymore. I guess you can safely assume that the positions have been filled. You can always send HR an email and ask though.

Cheers
