I think Perimeter is a great company and the concept of keeping someone on the ramp for a while even a year or so in slower times with a garuntee of a job based on performance is the norm. or has been.
Do the hiring people not know Jazz and Encore are hiring with 250 hours off the street. 2 years on the ramp to maybe have the chance to touch the right seat of a metro! Why not go fly a 172 or navajo elsewhere and go direct entry to Air Canada or Westjet in 2 years. At the start of the best time and biggest pilot shortage about to happen s in several decades...this job add is an embarrassment to the profession. I hope no one signs up for this deal!
Working on the ramp at PAL is hard work and in my opinion it's excessive. One year should be the max anyone should work that "slave job".
The hardest part at Perimeter is the training. I heard they have some draconian pilots there that will kick you out of the GS for the most idiotic reasons. It is not a pleasant learning environment.
Is it better than other "703"s? Sure! (I said 703 on purpose, because it's run like a 703 mom and pop BS company)

a) you won't get any sympathy here; and
b) the subject has nothing to do with bush flying
