The reserve rules at AC are archaic and border on illegall. As a junior reserve (and they’ll be junior reserve fur a while) Crew Sked owns your ass. Think you are going for a nice two day pairing and come home 6 days later. It’s not a nice place to be.
Yeah, but senior reserve (especially in YVR) is amazing! Pass on everything and you’ll go ages without flying, all the while still getting paid.

Now there’s an attitude right there.

I've applied to the position a couple of times and received a message saying that I would be receiving a confirmation email. I've checked my spam and every other mailbox but this email has never arrived. Has anyone else experienced this?

Yes. When this happened to me, I waited 9 months and decided to use a different email and received a confirmation email immediately. I got called for an interview a couple months later.

I’d suggest using a different email that results in a confirmation. I sat like a donkey waiting and I doubt my resume was ever on file. For the record, I used a hotmail account initially, which didn’t work, and used an iCloud email address when I got my confirmation. :rolleyes:

Had the same problem as well... certain email servers don't work, its quite a big issue on AC's part. There is an email under the FAQ to inquire.. however the IBM guy will just say its lost and to apply again. (https://careers.aircanada.com/pages/faq), go under the application section about how to know if your application has been received.

Best way I found is to create a profile, get the email back saying your profile is created, then apply through that profile. Google "Taleo Air Canada" and create a profile that way. You should get an email almost immediately after applying saying its been received, along with a login password and user ID.

So can we assume the wait time for those who interviewed in July/August has to do with the return of the MAX?

Some who interviewed around that time are being hired. It all depends on how you score.

So then why not PFO people if they don’t want them?

Generally you’ll get the PFO email pretty quick. No news is good news. Some people wait quite a while till they get the welcome aboard phone call.

The higher you score during the whole interview process the sooner you'll be hired. Simple as that. Waiting doesn't mean you're not wanted.

Can’t believe they brought the 330RP position back. Will it be seasonal like it was before?

I believe it was brought back due to the new duty regs. Although they could just have put more FOs on it as well.

Does the scoring system apply to OTS candidates only?? From my understanding, Jazz folks are interviewed and awarded job offers based on seniority with Jazz and do not follow a “scoring” type system to rank successful candidates.

Is this correct, or am I off base?

Don't try and predict anything. This past summer I was called 1 week after my interview, to start PIT 2 weeks later. OTS. The girls in HR are very warm, welcoming and professional btw.

Very True. Also I’m sure your SWG pic time was music to their ears.
