Jail ? An illegal question in many jurisdictions.

I was wondering if that is true, and it doesn’t seem to be in either Australia or the USA. Lawyers caution against asking about criminal history on the application, but it is evidently fair game in the interview. In any event a security background check is required for the position. Almost certainly for the visa too.

Hi guys can anyone tell me which airlines are currently sponsoring Aussie’s for a green card? I know currently that breeze and Commuteair are. Are there any more?

I listened to a webinar from Spirit today and the rep (Australian guy) said that while nothing is confirmed yet, he's pushing for them to start sponsoring green cards and is optimistic that it will get approved. He said they'd probably only look at people who'd been there four years or so. No idea about any of the others.

PSA have mentioned in a few E3 webinars that their lawyers are looking into the details of potential greencard sponsorship.

Nothing confirmed also, but have heard they will be looking at it more seriously next year. They are waiting to see how successful their E3 program is before going to the next level.

Spirit website and then follow up with an e-mail or vice versa.

If you live or can get to a Pilot Travel Center, you might find a little surprise in their refrigerated section (hint, it rhymes with More and Plenty)

This Ravn DHC-8 ad appears with some regularity. Not sure if that means they're having success finding E3s or not having any success:

Probably Spirit due to A320 time and a bigger more secure operation. In saying that Breeze is a much quicker upgrade on the A220 with better seniority and if they last you will be in a better position a few years from now.

It all depends what you want in life, where you want to live, opportunity, upgrade times etc…

Breeze planes look cooler though…😎

A lot of TMAAT, usual HR questions (DUI, criminal record, checkride failures, been fired before etc..) and a small technical at Spirit which aviation interviews.com more than covers and no technical at Breeze.

Breeze however does concentrate heavily on the ‘Nice person attitude’ so big on customer service, the type of person you are, would be to work with and have a healthy respect for those around you and a safety culture.

Are you located in Australia currently? Spirit had said they were only conducting in-person interviews for those in Australia for the time being.

Gday…… at the end of E3 based employment must one leave the US? Are the immigration staff still monitoring one’s attempts at converting this Visa and is it frowned upon?
