Walmart Canada?

#1 Post by JohnnyHotRocks » Fri Mar 10, 2017 12:31 pm

Just saw an ad that Walmart was looking for a Captain. Ad was not specific at all (no types, salary, base etc..) I didn't even know they operated airplanes in canada anymore. Anyone know anything about the operation?

I have no first hand knowledge but this is what I've head/seen.

Lear 45. YYZ based. They leave ~0800 and are back in the evening. Always full pax. Hitting anywhere in Canada there is a Walmart that an employee team can prove they need the jet so see.

They are very frugal with the airplane usage (employees have to submit proposals to prove need). It's always full and you're never going to do a pleasure trip. I believe pay/benefits is equal to mid level management with Walmart.

I've heard it's a good job with a good schedule. Few if any overnights but the downside is long days and multiple legs to crappy parts of Canada.

Interesting that they want an ATPL with an Multi rating and Multi IFR. I didn't know there was such a thing.
