Thank you. It is from pilotinterviews.com. Can anybody who works for Jazz tell me if it is still accurate please? Pilotinterviews.com is not up to date all the time.

Also, if I understand well Ted Green is Chief Pilot for all CRJ-s? Who is Chief Pilot for Dash-8 and DFO? Is there a Chief Pilot for each base or there is one man running the show and Chief Pilots at different bases are bellow him?

Wow is that ever a blast from the past. A number of those names are from org charts that are at least 4 revisions out of date. I wouldn't post stuff like that if you don't know what you're talking about, which clearly you don't.

Crazymax: That was very kind of you, but that chart is quite out of date and many of the positions have changed.

Me2005: I wouldn't use any of those names in an interview because many are wrong. I'll try to get around to posting some of the correct names, but if I forget, go to http://www.flyjazz.ca and all the big wigs (not pilot types, but ceo,cfo etc.) are on there. That's all I did on my interview and it went ok.

Good luck!

VP Flight Ops - Michel Chiasson
Dir. Flight Ops - Steve Linthwaite
Chief Pilot CRJ - Dan Holm
Chief Pilot DH8 - Gavin Ells
Chief Pilot West - Mitch Cady
Chief Pilot Central - Taylor Sebastian
Chief Pilot East - Gilbert Cusson
Ass. CP West - Rick Zimmerman
Ass. CP West - Tom Conroy
Ass. CP Central - Cal Purves
Ass. CP Central - James Bradley
Ass. CP East - Sylvain Normand
Ass. CP East - Sean Nozewski
Ass. CP East - Paul Steeves
Recruitment Co-ordiantor - Stephen Murray

Cal Purves does most of the YYZ interviews along with someone from HR.

The person making the initial calls and who you would deal with throughout the hiring process is Stephen Murray. Really nice guy by the way.

That should help a little

I hate to be the one to state the obvious, but if you're trying to submit a resume to Jazz via one of the aforementioned people, you're going about it in the absolute wrong way...

Good way to get yourself on a blacklist anyways.

Shouldn't this be in the Jazz forum?

I am definitely not intending the above. I have an interview coming up, and a friend of mine that did his not too long ago was asked in the interview if he know the name of the chief pilot. I'm trying to find this info, but everything I found is pretty outdated. And yes, I'll try the jazz forum.

Just thought it would be easier here, since someone started a post on this very question many years ago.

They ask if you know who the President and CEO are.

Colin Copp and Joseph Randell. That's really all you need to know. If they ask who the VP of Flight Ops is, that's Steve Linthwaite, and Director of Flt Ops is Cal Purves. I don't see them asking anything further than that.

LinkedIn and Google are your friends in this case.

I liked LinkedIn, while not always perfect, will usually yield if they are active on there, the names of the people you are looking for.
