Irvin??

Good Luck trying to get anything out of IB. HR is a joke.

He could not be bothered to help present employees, so what chance wannabees??

Good Luck indeed

not that bad HR afterall!

I recently sent my CV back in Dec, and was contacted by IB by phone and by email just after a few days. In the email he advised me to contact him for further querries. I then did as I'd a few questions. I spoke to IB who was very helpful.(I'm a wannabe with CPL already)
PS: not related to him or protecting him btw.
so anyone can always try.

Flying saucer

FS,

Heed 4HP's advice.

The pitifull amount of Rupees you will earn will not be enough to get you all the way home once a year. Assuming you could get the leave!!

Better to stay closer to home and earn real money

Go Saucer

Hey Fyingsaucer,
I'd suggest that you give it a try! Afterall it'll be a change, beautiful island with lots of cosmopolitans. I know some expats are not very happy with the management but doesnot mean that you won't be treated nice. There has been recent changes in management.
Try to have a read at the lastest post "Air Mauritius - all you need to know about MK (threads merged)"

Good Luck

Try to read thread re:AirMAuritius

It has been a major issue re: AirMtius and expats!!
I don't understand why you would even comment on that! I'd suggest you read all the thread re: AirMauritius.
Cheers.

Don't need to, I am there. I know the situation very well.

I am not saying everything is good here. Not at all. Browsing through PPRuNe, I have not seen one company with everybody happy with management. If there is one such company, I would be the very interested to know the name. Or maybe these guys don't post on PPRuNe?

Hey flyingsaucer, i'd suggest u PM localiserreborn as he seems to know so much about AirMtius Management.
n yes being French would help a lot as most of the Mauritian do speak French though English being the national language.(u might already know that by now i guess)

Hello,

I recently applied for the MK Cadet scheme just before christmas. I'm still waiting on a response to see whether or not i have been selected for interview. I called sometime last week and spoke to IB, he told me that not all the applications were in and was waiting for adverts to stop. He is very nice person, very informative. I would just like to know how long im expecting to wait. I was also wondering where the adverts are posted in Mauritius?

Thanks all

Cadetship Scheme 2007/2008 not yet advertised

Hi ATPLwhoops,
how did you apply for the cadetship scheme when it has not been advertised on either the local press nor on the Air Mauritius website.
And before one is selected for the interview, he would have gone through a series of tests(aptitude,psyc, team work...)!You'll be invited to participate if you are eligible.
Have I been missing something as I've been keeping a close look for the next vacancy after the last bacth went to 43flying school.
Quote :"spoke to IB, he told me that not all the applications were in and was waiting for adverts to stop"

why would he say that?? waiting for the adverts to stop which never started!

RaviMk stated in his thread that AirMauritius has received lots of cadetship applications even though that the vacancy has not been advertised yet.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.
VD
