Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

Post by Bronco Billy »

I got invited for an interview but unfortunately I wasnt able to make it work with my work schedule (2 weeks On). Anyone knows if they plan on doing other rounds of interviews in the next few months?

Thanks!

Couldn't find any posting for First Officers. I guess I am too late :cry:

- 4000+ hrs
- 1000+ 705 Capt time
- 1000+ Transport Jet experience
- 705 LTC, CRM, Training experience
- Internal ref (big one)
- STEM Degree
- Bilingual
Daedalusx is right, and the internal reference really is a huge factor. In my class (Hired 2017), there was a C.P. at a 704, 2 705 ACP "A's," a guy from the Air Force, 3 other 705 Capt's, and 2 705 F/O's.

All are great guys and I think all had internal references. Sunwing (and any 705 airline for that matter) can teach how to fly the plane, but a big plus is the personality which you can't teach. I think that's why in my year and a half here so far, there's not one person I've flown with that I wouldn't want to fly with again.
How can one have internal reference if one doesn't work there?

From friends or acquaintances who do.

Was that a skill testing question??

A gem??? Seriously? Sunwing isn’t very far removed from the days of trying to play the foreign worker system at every corner in order to avoid hiring Canadians. Instead filling their flight decks with cheaper, drunk Eastern Europeans.

Eh? I work here, what on earth are you talking about? To be frank your diatribe sounds a little drunk in itself.

Ok.... good one.
So I’m guessing by the fact you chose to attack me instead of what I said I was correct in my statement.

Ok, fine. Can you elaborate on how we are not far removed from the foreign worker days? Certainly that incident was not to be celebrated. A number of airlines have had such unfortunate issues. Are you implying that the rest of us behave in such a fashion?

I've worked at 3 705 companies, 1 704 and 1 703 and SWG is the best place I've been. Hopefully they stay in business a long time as I intend to stay the rest of my career here.

Note that Transat (who used to slag SWG for doing this) is using foreign workers themselves now to augment their winter flying. I'm not slamming Transat by the way. I know people who work there and they seem just as happy there as the people at SWG. Having these agreements allows SWG to have the flexibility to not lay-off pilots in the summer. And, we send far more pilots to Europe in the summer than SWG brings to Canada in the winter.

I think it's a good business model for a very seasonal business.
