Correction, they are hiring 4 Fo and 4 Fe for the A300. 6 Fo go for interview, more hiring might follow. Next month 1 A300 coming back on active duty what brings the total at 13 airframes. Possible 1 more will follow later this year, not confirmed.

A300 is also ACL, people are hired by ACL, not EAT.

Wealth Warning

I have heard this week that ACL are offering 44k for experienced A300 FEs.

This "ab initio's" salary does not sit easily when the guys you'd hand the aircraft over to are earning in excess of 70k. Many were on that salary before being made redundant, so a double slap.

Methinks that's just a trifle cynical. Supposed to attract those who are desperate for work?

@ Dengue_Dude

There is however a very big difference in the tax situation of those with the 70+ salary.
In the end the difference will not be that enormous...

I sincerely doubt the tax difference will amount to 28000 --- a 39% pay cut for the same job. Even Belgian tax doesn't make THAT much difference.

Just call me cynical . . .
