There we go, Air Mauritius is getting desperate for Flight Crew, just getting, not there yet!!!!
After cutting too many heads randomly, they mandated Rishworth and Park for the fob.
They can’t attract candidate with the salary they are offering on their normal contract.
By all means avoid Rishworth. Just read on the South Asia and Far East forum, under Vietnam Airlines. Rishworth won’t back you up when Air Mauritius decide to cut your salary and/or abuse you. Stick to Park they have a good reputation behind them. http://www.parcaviation.aero/pages/current_assignments/crew_resourcing.asp?RMURL=VacDetail%2Easp%3FCommAdSeqNo%3D15 91
(Undre location Macau, A340 second Officer, but the job description is mentionning Air Mauritius)
Both Park and Rishworth are offering the same thing.
Why not yet desperate??? They use to pay 6000€/month for Second Officer when they are. Just sit and wait, the offer will go up.
Bottom lime, they need Second Officers for 4 months, why 4 months??? Because they don't know what will be their requirement in such a short time!!!!
If you are A340 rated and have a job, better stay were you are. Unles you can get leave without pay and get Air Mauritius to pay you 6000euro/month.
"MK has been hiring SAS f/os for years on short term contract during high season. Normally these guys come by mid-Nov and stay until end of Jan. Originally they were hired through Park, but as far as I know the last couple of years they were on direct contract. Some of these guys have been with MK 3-4 times. They do not fall in the same league as normal recruits, as they normally take unpaid leave from SAS and come to MRU rated. They enjoy 6000 EUR salary, 40000 MUR housing (almost double what is being dished out to us) and every single benefit that expat pilots have. This is first hand info obtained from the people involved about 2 months ago."
Any thoughts about WHY the fairly high salary and housing? Maybe it's because they still have expenses at home for house/apartment, family etc. A short term contract for a place to live is not cheap. And I guess they relieve some of the guys down there, otherwise they wouldn't have been hired.
Hello my friends, I receive a job offer from air mauritius with 3500 euro plus 900 euro for house allowances.i am thinking not to accept it.does anybody know if they are giving free tickets for yourself and for your family?also are you able for consecutive days off?thanks!!!
They will tell you that the tickets are free, but try and book a trip back to Euroland and you and your family of 3 or 4 will be paying 300-400Eur for those "free" tickets. Air France employees travel on Air Mauritius for less than Air Mauritius staff themselves, I kid you not, that is how they treat their staff. Among other things, they will indefinitely freeze your salary, cancel holidays at very short notice, and as for consecutive days off..........good luck, your roster will change by the hour.........
Free tickets your yourself and family!!!! The only free ticket you will get is the one to go to your interview…..Read the last few posts on that forum and you will see that FREE tickets are not free with Air Mauritius, they cost you a lot!!!!
Consecutive days off, yes 2 or 3 maximum normally….that way they keep you on the island and can call you to work on your days off!!!
I've been called for an interview as an ATR captain, and this is a great opportunity for me. I would very much appreciate any helps and hints on the screening process. Great if you can PM me some infos.
You need to submit your application from the website of MK, and then they will call you for a screening, it seems they have regular screenings during the year, but they are very selective, only the very braves get hired... (that's what I heard) recently they interviewed 15 FO in France and none got the job, and same thing with 40 spanish pilots. Wondering if they are that desperate for pilots. Also some friends told me that it was the worst experience he had, and he did many interviews in his career. So we'll see how it goes.
