MicKey mouse airline ( MK ) Ha Ha Ha, they will never learn !!! As long as it is run by politicians, BOZOS at flight ops and HR, nothing will change. Much better pay, working conditions, respect from employer and quality of life anywhere else. For those who have been sacked last month, just look for better sky elsewhere. Get reinstated in the roster and tell them to stick their job where it should be painful.....

First of all, communication with a company is a hassle. I was really struggling to get some information about tickets, assessment, documentation. It's a nightmare, I exchanged more than 30 emails to set up my interview.

Interview it's quite straight forward. Aviation knowledge is similar to QR database. I'm not telling it was easy, you need to be prepared. It will be easier for some young folks straight after school that for old wolves. I think was 60 questions, time wasn't really the factor. Then you have some questions on paper from psychologist. After that 30-50 mins conversation with psychologist.
Next stage is a panel interview with training department. CRM questions, some systems I think, but mostly pressing for CRM and something about your background.
I passed all the stages but there were quite big percentage people who failed. I was honest and straight forward. At this stage they proposing you contract. There is a draft but is so unclear that I got few questions. We sat with group and we deduced that you can have 2000€ or 4000€ around. It depends how you read this what they gave you. I send email straight after interview with questions they told me that they will reply after interview before sim. I was waiting 1 month to get sim date. Finally I got it but still I don't have an answer about contract.
Company looks nice, people are nice, living in Mauritius can make feel you trapped I believe after short time but is a proper country with very nice areas. But this communication problems, not offering straight forward conditions, it will loose them... they will need pilots soon when A350 will come, but I can bet that with this attitude they'll really will struggle with finding Pilots. I would like to join company but I can't wait 3-4 months for decisions and having screening process for 2 months.

Good luck guys.

Of course it's far from being perfect, it's completely disgusting.

Hello MK34,

Its not the first time we have seen posts from perhaps someone with an AXE to GRIND? I don't know but I think you can make a more detailed post to explain the reason you feel the way you do about Air Mauritius?

The airline really appreciates and respects experienced captains who can keep our fleet flyable and maintain the safety reputation it has in Africa. This respect you will get it through a nice expat salary package on a beautiful island where the mean salary is €400 and you’ll be way above. But try to over rule here and they will bring you down to earth like the foreigner who recently instigated a strike and instead got sent back home with a letter requesting him back the monetary loss his action caused the company.

I believe at the moment career progression won’t be ideal for foreigners(especially if transition is what you’re looking) since recent financial bilan revealed company went through severe loss. ATRs are mainly to help newbies(Mauritian nationals) build flying experience to progress from FO to PIC on ATRs till they qualify next as FO for jets. Since they’ve recently recieved new planes, and with the most recent financial performance, they will try their best to train the nationals to fit those positions since local workforce is cheaper. But that said, knowing MK they will never trade on pilot quality, if you can bring a difference they will defo consider you though you will also be in competition with tons of other expats who’re as experienced as you before they decide to choose you or invest on training a national(The culture is nationals are a long term vision and expats temporary contracts, the most ideal expat for us is the one who is type rated ready to start and will cost us minimums).

Not forgetting, the amount of pilot graduates we have back on the Island who are unemployed(i myself an engineer with a Swiss PPL not willing to go commercial so soon when i see actual market for our locals though it has been my childhood dream) i believe its quite normal for them to prioritize locals if they had to invest on training you. That being said, Mauritius is a stable, harmonious with the sun around at least 300 days per year country. If you win a position as an expat here, it will be your golden ticket.

Good luck,

Jason.
