No surprise, PX rated 5.1% in the employee engagement survey http://www.pprune.org/australia-new-...t-results.html

Summed up perfectly:

The Air Niugini result at the bottom is our lowest mark ever and this is not a technical anomaly by rating half a dozen angry employees. We had a solid number of contributors from our PNG friends and not one of them rated the performance of their management team anything above a zero. It may be a place to avoid if you are looking for work.

olderairhead,

"It may be a place to avoid if you are looking for work"......prob why more than 70 expats left in last two years. Guessing that is why after 2 and half years both the unions have a legal bill of closing on 1/2 mill kini to try and get what is right.

LostPropery...ANG got rid of some nice modern "BIG" Dash 8 (stealing your words) for some OLD jets.

ANG's competition are getting rid of old aircraft for new factory one, ANG got rid of new factory aircraft for old ones. Go Figure!!!

And I wonder which airline are cancelling more services.......and if you don't think politics are involved.......!!!!!!!!

IAC have advertised again. No takers from the last advertisement.

Do they really think they will get anyone, especially after the published results of the employee survey?

Maybe the world's best HR manager thinks no one reads PPRuNe.

Dunno about that Olderairhead,

hearing that maybe a RAAf dude is happy to join for a 737 gig, despite your best efforts to advise the world of the issues......and the ongoing Court stuff going on.

Admittedly no picket lines but, morals are morals.

I alluded to his employment a few posts ago.
No-one else is willing to take up the challenge.
And I bet he gets a warm welcome........not!

Also hearing from a fairly pissed off fokker capt that this direct entry hasn't flown for some time therefore will be doing a full endorsment, how nice of Air Niugini to revalidate him, why wasn't this bloke put on the Fokker or Dash.

Yes Balusnomore, no picket lines but that 4 letter word starting with "S" does come to mind.

He is ex military, China job he was awarded is now a non starter because the Chinese CAAC would not issue a licence because of lack of civil time. So in jumps PX to the rescue, disregards 13+ years service of currently employed pilot's, gives him a job with bugger all civilian experience nor PNG experience and there goes any respect for the company - not that there was any left.

Another great management decision.

Apart from the last 36 pages, perhaps it is a lesser evil for a dash 8 fo, with PNG time, to seek career progression on to a jet. I'm not saying it's right or wrong but...

How does one go from having no jet time to having jet time without progressing to a jet.

However, I am sure there are plenty of capable and qualified FOs in air nogat that could fill this position without having to recruit from out side.

They've been advertising through a few Brokers for some time now too, for various positions.

Still waiting for the Court orders and the decision on the sacked National's. Hopefully something early next week.

Meanwhile Poxie now wants to increase it's pilot numbers. Memo follows but in English probably means they are going to bypass everyone and instead employ direct entry B737 Captains.

Rebuilding Crew Numbers on the Air Niugini Fleets

This message is being put out to advise all crew that over the next 16 months as we try
to build capacity to replenish our crew numbers there will be an ongoing flow of
recruitment and training.
We will also continue to work on maintaining our internal crew promotions to provide
progression to all our current crew. Where we are unable to fill certain crew positions, in
particular commands, due to current constraints on certain fleets and after exploring
and exhausting all other internal means we will temporarily fill the position with a Short
Term Contract personnel whilst we work to internally replenish capacity.
This will be conducted in a coordinated manner so as to ensure we do not deplete
resources on the different fleets in maintaining the operating schedule.
Your continued assistance and cooperation at this time is much appreciated.

The campaign to rid PX of pilots since 2014 has been tremendously successful, thus far.
