Fleet grounded

Surely this will be quickly taken care of by blaming an ex-pat and sheikhing hands on it before any embarassment occurs.

You are probably correct, as the handshiek is the usual way of keeping face, but as there are no longer any engineers to blame, QA, HR, CE et al better get the C.V.'s out quick...

Could not resist asking, what regulatory non-compliance? Just to keep the discussion going.

Griffo,

Young Lad....you know HR never takes any hits!

They are indispensable now more than ever.....they will have to pull some more names off their computer lists and do some interviews....why they are the salvation to this situation.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

Sorry Spinny, I stole your entry message.
I asked the other day why this company was now SOOOO... appealing. There were no direct answers, however latest comments answered much.
Simply put.... No change at ADA to my jaded eyes....

Why doesnt that surprise me, one Sheikh chats to another Sheikh and the problems go away, yet if it was westerners involved they would be locked up and charged with negligence

Feel sorry for the poor bastards that still have to work over there, have noticed things changing at a LOT of the companies in that region, and NOT for the better.

Mmmmm ....

Ned .... I think you are reading too much into this .....

There was nothing "wrong" with the airworthiness (?) of the fleet nor anything to do with negligence as such.

For all it faults ADA is still a reasonable company to work for .... lots of bitching comes from those that have left and can't come back (and yes some don't want to come back either) for whatever reason, or have some other axe to grind with management.

Ahhhh "Life in the Gulf" .... the "Logic Free Zone"

US Mech w/ FAA Rating

How does one with a FAA Rating get job with ADA. I have submitted my application as a non-licensed enginner. But I have not heard anything back. Can someone shed some light on how can one with an FAA rating get hired with ADA. I have 10 year on Bell 212 and Bell lights.

thanks

Not sure on AME side but for pilots - write the GCA law exam and then schlep thru the paperwork process to get your foreign license validation. Hurry up & wait being the order of the day but I should think no major dramas for AME's.

unless you are a member of the Engineering team of ADA you have no right saying all positions are taken, after all many contractors are known for changing there minds at the last moment.
Any qualified engineers on Company types are still encouraged to apply.

Cool Got a email from ADA

Got an email for ADA a few weeks ago with a a bunch of attachments to fill out and send in. So i did, and sent by regular mail from Canada. I guess they are not in a rush to fill vacancies..??? But who knows . Any insight into the hiring process would be appreciated. Time line?? Not sure if I want to quit my job just yet!!??

Cheers

Please don't!!

I actually spoke to the CP face to face and was promised a start.

Until u are actually signing on the dotted line, keep your old job!

Either way good luck.
