If you have been selected to take the Tech exam then well done.
If not then get off you high horses and apply somewhere else, to be honest it seems like the majority of you would rather just slate anything than say nothing. Boo Hoo that you didn't get it, or don' t have a job at all.
The company must have sorted the license issue otherwise UK pilots wouldn't be able to work in Canada - do you really think they would have overlooked this fairly important detail?
And as for those taking the tech exam, do you really feel that they have time to come on here and quell the rumours - they are probably studying their asses off to get the chance to interview for the best job opportunity this side of the millennium.
Hmmm, suspicious happy man .One post and it's a pro C and M rant... I think you'll find us experienced employed pilots are the ones doing the warning here. 52 successful candidates.....not one on PPRuNe. Utter bull.
If you think this is the best job opp , you have been sniffing glue which would cancel your medical I feel.
I'm sure the mods have the tech to trace your IP just to make certain.
There are an awful lot of awful opinions in this thread.
Details for this contract are sketchy to say the least, but if you are unemployed, be you experienced or not, why would you not apply? If you don't apply you won't have the opportunity to make an informed judgement about whether the job is worth your while or not. Does it really matter at this stage who the employer is?
If you want the career in an airline then chuck your hat in the ring, and get in the game. If not then I don't understand what you hope to gain by taking cheap shots at everyone else.
I'm sure you all want to know if I applied or not. It's none of your business
No request has been made yet for any money for either selection, sim evaluation, training or rating. So I don't really see how it is a scam. (This may change of course later!) Until then, surely it's best to think of it as interview preparation which doesn't hurt. For those already flying, there are bound to be better offers and this may well be an insult to you. For those working in McD's this is the magic open door!
Please quit trying to lump me in with C and M, for the public record, I abhor any outfit or individual that seeks to profit from the aspirations of young pilots. I spend a great deal of my time trying to prevent both that and companies from being party to it, TOM in particular, as you spend spouting on here. As yet there is no evidence to suggest C and M are in any way shady and no evidence to suggest that TOM is involved and that includes asking the question directly of the TOM manager concerned.
As for forgetting important details viz work permits, maybe one of the TOM pilots currently on secondment to Sunwing in Canada may care to comment on the vagaries of the process?
And here's a clue. I think I am probably about as well qualified to talk on the involvement of TOM or otherwise as anyone here. Have a quick squint at earlier discussions on TOM recruitment and join up the dots, about the only tech questionnaire some here would appear capable of, that's if your bored with painting by numbers.
For those still struggling with it, maybe some kind soul from TOM could help them with it?
