That is because based guys cost less, it is much cheaper to keep guys on a base than to have them in HKG. It saves the company money you see. That is why all Paris based officers will come to ... HKG.
To all new recruits, please come to Cathay, we have bases! Trust me, the other bases will have vacancies very soon! I heard a rumor that we are gonna hire direct entry pilots on bases! Miami is gone open this year, swear to god.
They will be using the AMS model where the base was closed and nobody batted an eyelid at having to move to London with a huge pay cut or disrupt your entire family and move ( quickly) to The other side of the world. CX has tried to do basings on the cheap and it's turning into a nightmare (shame) for them. What will happen to the people based in Paris?? They will presumably have 2 months to move to the other side of the world. Quite reasonable don't you think. After all, we're all part of the Cathay 'family'.
At least they will never close Canadian bases , we Canadians are too willing to do anything for the company to stop them from closing the base, he'll we will even go direct to CH and suggest better patterns for us to get more , don't mind you HK based guys , whatever works for us is best !
QuadSpeed, I am Extremely serious. CxUk guys get for instance paternity leave or their partners(not wives) also get ticket benefits, all their salary is paid in UK banks ,etc etc. these were all conditions the company adhered to when they went onshore in the UK. ooh and not to forget their apparent deals with the HMRC.
So my question stands, why would they close a British base if that seems to be the only country where they seem to have their onshoring arranged. It's a simple question guys, just want to know, no need for any strange comments . From what I knew the PAR and AMS bases were both under VETA right?
And can someone that has seen this letter confirm that it is a fact that these officers must head out to HKG instead of another position in the base AREA?(like the AMS guys)
NOBODY and I say again NOOOBODDYYY will resign, there are no jobs out there, even the Middle east is pulling back on recruitment. Hope the guys can stay in Europe. Damnn this company makes you regret ever sending your cv, :-(((
