Thumbs down

Wouldn't advice you to transfer...if you're from VNA. You'll be getting less than the usual you're getting from VNA. A whole lot of disadvantages. PM me if you need more info.

98% of the people have no airline experience, including the CEO. The Chief Pilot is a backbone-less weasel who would never stand up for the pilots and would kiss anybody's ass just to keep his position. He was just lucky because the previous guy couldn't live with the incompetence of the operations people and he was at the right place at the right time after miserably failing his recurrent sim in a Japanese carrier.

Stay away unless you need to be current. Then go, get the experience, work under the radar and cultivate your Plan B.

They are looking for rated guys, IMO it looks a very unprofessional management team, have had some bad experiences with them so far, unless ur really desperate, stay away.

Hmmm didnt see this, i have been working with the recruitment company that's working with them. Kinda shows they are extremely desperate for pilots, NOT the place if ur rated and experienced, maybe ok for some freshers, who need the rating and accumulate time before they switch somewhere else

It is bad enough when an airline is run by incompetents (imagine the Chief Pilot e-mailing everyone that OM Part B is not required? and was of course scolded by QA for this), but it's even worse when a BANKER tries to run the show.

For those without options, go and get qualified, and be more marketable.

Anyway, the girls should be attenuating factors

Vietjetwannabe

Since the latest set of Skype interviews,they had offered some candidates screening dates and put them on hold a few days later. Does anybody have a update on the type rated f/o recruitment and why they were put on hold. Was there a last minute freeze on hiring . Also any information on the f/o sim screening and eval, what to expect.
Thanks in advance

Angel ,

Hi all,

I just need some advice from the right people here, I sent my application for vietjet in June but still havent heard from them yet,whats the other way to check the progress of my application,

I know for some of you Viet jet isnt the place but I'm only a CPL/IR holder with 500hrs no jet experience.

thanks in advance for any feedback.

...Having applied to them once I know they're located on the 9th floor of that
shopping plaza at the roundabout opposite Tan Son Nhat but I've never been
there myself. Might be worth a personal visit and just drop in with yer resume
and see if you can meet up with their personnel bloke.

Like another poster said it should be used as a fill-in job till a real one turns
up. I dropped my application once I found out my present job (such as it is)
was much more realer than theirs. I did want to return to Sai Gon as I had a
total ball there in a prev employ yonks ago - but decided against it once I'd
found out its crap pay and management.

Good luck anyway. Sai Gon is a craphole - with some parts a bit less crappy
than others - but a VERY enjoyable and dirt cheap one to live and party!

don't even bother

"dont even bother" sending your resume, doing the interview and assessment.... you'll be appalled by how incompetent the management are, i was hoping i didn't join this airline, i will be leaving soon...just so you know, it's full of S@#T!!! And beware you're airplanes (A320) has a lot of snags, maintenance is as crap as the management. If only i knew before i joined, i wouldn't have dared.!!!!! If you have other options. Go to other places and other airlines!!

Cheers mates..

Cadets vs senior FO

Latest news from Vietjet for the 20 Dec F O is that Vietjet left them hanging because a Italian Trto offered cadets that were a lot cheaper. Thats fine business is business but they left us all hanging waiting for a sim date, now they don't answer emails or phone calls. If they would have been straight toward that would have been acceptable.

Devil

a whole lot of other options...mind if i tell you? Tiger airways, Hongkong airlines, JetStar Asia singapore are way better than this so called airline, their operations is a total mess, they don't even have a certified dispatcher, and just recently when inspected by Civil Aviation Authority (CAAV) of Vietnam, one pilot got suspended for a month after they found out, there's no MEL in the plane, only MMEL, and there's no approved Operations Manual Part B....So imagine this, they printed a copy paste OM from another airline which is totally not in conformity with their company SEP (Safety and Emergency Procedures). Don't come here!!!! you have been FOREWARNED!!!!!
