Is that the one with no company name or city/town/hamlet. If anyone takes it please let us know how it turns out.
Yes $30 is a slap in the face, I get a chuckle when I read these adds, do they really expect someone to do that job for that?

If you read the tasks you are going to be doing that pay is not all that bad.

Now if they were hiring someone who could actually fix airplanes that would be poor pay.

Pushing paper is easier than actually maintaining the airplanes.

They'll probably want you to be available 24/7.

So that would give you a yearly salary of:

365 days * 24 hour/day * 30 CAD/hour = 262 800 CAD

Not too bad.

You are not seriously suggesting a PRM position is comparable to a Director or a President are you?

What kind of aircraft?

It's odd that they want a 6 years licensed ame for a prm job.

30 an hour is low, 62000 a year. You won't get anyone talented for that.

That job shouldn't be less than 35/hr.

CAR 573.04 (1) states:
“The person responsible for maintenance appointed under paragraph 573.03(1)(a) of the Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs) shall have acquired a minimum of six years experience in the performance or direct supervision of maintenance activities of the type undertaken by the organization, at least six months of which have been obtained within the preceding two years”

No it doesn’t say licensed for 6 years but it’s a common mis-interpretation

I don't know what part of the country you're in but out west they most definitely won't be flooded with interest. Might be a better shift, etc, but its still 30 bucks an hour. Pretty hard to afford to live if you support a family.
Regardless, you will most probably be a slave to the cell phone.

I'm in the lower mainland. It's not for me, but there's lots getting paid peanuts on the fixed wing side that will jump at that.
I've seen lots of ads over the years that make you shake your head, but someone always ends up taking these positions.

Didn't think there were still that many enthusiasts still out there, especially in your area. That being said I know a few in yvr who took Encore's shit $24 a/hr wage so I guess there still are some.
I could honestly longer time night shift guys at least initially contemplating it for the hope of ever seeing the sun besides it setting or rising, lol.

Ya, I had my mind stuck on an operator for some reason, not an AMO. You can get alternate experience allowances for certain cases. Not paying enough is usually not accepted.
