Screening in Germany

Been invited for a screening in Germany. Not much info yet due to time difference (it's 7am their time and I've only just confirmed my availability). Any insights to what I'm in for in Germany? Just the sim, or the interviews as well? What type of aptitude test? Technical questions?

I’m a bit confused. Is the interview in Germany or Kenya please? Is Rishworth the only agent? Do you guys know their selection criterion? I mean such as experience on type, license preferences, origin...

Check Rwanda airs own webpage. It says all the requirements and how to apply without agency 🙂

Yes it does say all the requirements on the company’s website. But it also says the deadline for submission was October 8, 2016. I assume Rwandair has changed their policy on pilot recruitment after that day. Am I right or wrong please? Thanks!

i would go with an agency. Less chance of getting effed with it having contract violated. This is based on first hand experience.

Does anyone know what the CRJ street captain position pays?

Also that commuter schedule sounds a little rough, any way to live in country and have a more typical airline schedule? Seems like a place I would at least consider living for a while.

Has anyone worked for Rwanda on the A330, and my questions are:

Whats it like living in Kigali?
How is the roster? average monthly hours.?

I am (as is obvious from above) also interested in going but at the same time don't have first hand info. That said, I have a friend in Kigali who´s been there for a couple of years, working as a teacher. He likes it. It is safer than most cities on the continent. It is however relatively sleepy compared to other cities he says. Also, it is pretty expensive for foreigners so expect the housing allowance to be used in full, also western comfort foods and the like is very expensive. We´re talking 8-10 Euros for, say, a tube of Pringles.

I´d say that the salaries are low as Rwanda as a whole, however amazing their progress is since the mass killings two decades ago, is still a very poor country that is highly dependent on foreign aid. They pay what they can afford.

Rent prices are high, but I would disagree about the Pringles comment. Food, while expensive, is not outrageously so. Said can of Pringles is probably more like EUR 3.50. Besides, Pringles are bad for you, Mzungu. Shopping at Nakumatt or the German Butcher will set you back some Euros, shopping at a local grocer will not be nearly as costly.

Kigali is clean, safe and has a nice climate. No, it's not a metropolis and things can and do move very,slowly there. Having been to every nook and cranny on the African continent, I can say with certainty that Kigali is delightful and Africa "light."

Rwandair isn't a career destination but, if it gets you where you want to be, a worthy excursion.
