Around 2012, I saw one of their ads looking for Dash Captains with 3 weeks on/3 weeks off rotations based in Cairns with salary of ~140k/year (AUD). That seemed pretty reasonable to me. As a Dash Captain who's flown for a few months in PNG on a survey contract, I'm interested in hearing what they have to offer this time. I had a read through this discussion and there's some great info on here (thanks to all for keeping it updated with the current stuff) but I didn't see anything about current salaries and what the new rotations will be.

Can anyone comment about the current salaries and how the accommodations are which are provided in POM (I gather the lodging is in the Ela Beach area)? Also, what is the rotation they are offering (the ad says 3 on /3 off with 6 on / 6 off "by negotiation"). And what are the chances of internal movement to Fokker or other types?


Thanks very much for the help. Shoot me a PM if you don't feel like posting.

The Current salaries are crap, maintenance crap, morale crap, accomodation crap, managment however think all is wonderfull and continue to pat each other on the back.

Hearing the lads are getting pretty excited today preparing for tonight's exclusive invitation only drinks and nibbles in the faulty towers Cafe hosted by the ops department.

Reckon there will be plenty of room to swing a dead cat or two around.......... That's if anyone shows up.

Just in, they now have to pay to go to work in their own cars. This includes the training centre, Poxie house and Fawlty Towers.

This notice is to POM based staff only.

As per AVSEC Management directive Vehicle Access Passes (stickers) for 2018 issued to Air Niugini Staffs and Contractors will be charged.

· Vehicle access passes (stickers) issued to staff for own private vehicles will be charged a fee of K20.00

· Staff that are using company vehicles will be charged K20.00. Respective departments are to raise SR and forward it to Security Department.

· All Contractors and sub-contractors will be charged K50.00 per sticker.

All payment of cash must be done at ANG Claims Office and present their receipts at Security admin counter to collect their passes (stickers).

Tripela,

For some reason PX admin staff struggle with (amongst many other things) the concept and use of “Mass Nouns”. Other common examples include Cargo(s), Accommodation(s) and Furniture(s).

Bloody annoying I agree but probably not at the top of the list of irritants for the troops right now. 🤪

I disagree, it does need to be at the top of the list. Airlines rise and fall on their standards. If the HR department can't master basic english language, how are they going to handle, contracts, leases, compliance, etc. This decline in oversight of standards is reflected through all aspects of the company. Just ask their customers.

I admire your standards Mangi and agree wholeheartedly with you.

"Vehicle access passes (stickers) issued to staff for own private vehicles will be charged a fee of K20.00"

"The resignations continue. Another one gone today. 123 and counting".

Seeing that there would be around 150 cars needing parking permits, PX will raise about 3000 Kina.

The time to train a new hire, with endorsement costs, ground school, salary etc, would have to cost somewhere in a conservative area of 50 to 70K Aus dollars ran……plus loss of revenue because of flight cancellations due to the crew shortage.

Someone seem to have missed Business 101 if chasing a 20 kina parking fee is more important than nutting out some T&C’s that would keep pilots instead of having to throw cash at the training basket to replace them.

767 needs ‘C’ check, no got monies. This is the reactive school of business shaggs.

TBL Warrior don’t forget that will reduce the 767 fleet to 1 airframe.
Hard to stay current with 27 captains and 15 First Officers.
The amount of Reserve Days or Grey Days the lads are about to get would make a Qantas long haul pilot blush!
Won’t do much for their KPI however....

I am being told that realistically there are 18 Capts on the Fokker plus 3 under training which actually makes it worse.
