human resources?

Hi guys,

Im a spanish dash 8 fo, meeting copa requirements. I have tried sending my papers to seleccionpilotos@copaair.com , but it gets bounced back.
I filled in the web application, but Im quite suspicious of it woking properly.

Would anybody be so kind to provide me with contact details for the people in charge of pilot selection, or otherwise the hr dept?

Thanks and Good luck to everybody!

I know on another forum I saw a guy say he was going to Panama for an interview with Copa this month. Not sure what his times were but looked like he flew the Saab-340.

I was born in Panama but moved to the US when I was very little. I've done all of my flying in the US but I'm curious if Copa would consider me at the Panamanian pilot minimums of 250 total hours. Anyone have any insight on this? Thanks

Anyone found out the alternate way to send your info?, since the email posted in their website doesn't work. It gets returned.
Also anyone knows their payscale, specially for Captains?

COPA's way of treating applicants is quite extraordinary. I applied as DEC and I never heard anything, despite talking to various higher-ups. Never heard anything from Carolina Henriquez (not even a reply!). I called, emailed, was in PTY to make contacts ... nothing.

Then I get a call from a friend of mine, getting the info that COPA was in MEX last week on a recruitment show and "hired" quite a few Mexican pilots. Speaking of expats... which kind are we talking about? Latin-American nationals and non Latin-American nationals?

Hope y'all have better luck than me!

Copa Hiring

COPA is now hiring Captains. They are interviewing starting end of April, 2010 with a class in June and August. They have an agreement with Continental Airlines (because Continental owns their airplanes and the union there is weak and unable or incapable to enforce scope) that they give preferential hiring to furloughed and retired CAL pilots. I dont know about the rest of the seats. They have been very quick to respond so if u dont get a response then u can assume they are not interested.

Where do you send your resume to? Apparently, the email address posted on their website does not work.

There must be an easier way of contacting COPA directly as it seems their web process is dead in the water.
I've been trying to apply for months now, off and on, but I always get nowhere. Maybe it has something to do with Panama and Canada internet connectivity?

Can you call them in Panama or is calling this Carolina the better option?
Wouldn't mind some help/advice/assistance with this if you're so inclined?

Mine went through just fine. I even got a nice automated response letter saying they received my stuff and that they will get in touch with me whenever hiring starts.

Sim will be on a King Air 200, SID at random airport, hold, ILS to miss app, ILS to land and any extras they wanna give you, (at least that was my case)
