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.

E

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?

Yes, if an E3 expires you must leave the States before the expiry. If the company wants to keep you beyond an E3 expiry it must be renewed outside the country, this can be done by going to Mexico or Canada or returning to Australia.

You don't really "convert" the visa, it is classed as "nonimmigrant" and therefore impossible.

What people do is find other legitimate ways into a green card, notably by marriage, DV lottery, EB3 or EB2.

That isn't frowned upon, but those avenues are totally separate from the E3.

E3 visa can be renewed for another 2 years ? This can go on indefinitely?

In theory it can be renewed indefinitely. But if your employee chooses not to support the renewal, or you have a criminal conviction in the interim (or myriad of other reasons), the immigration officer can choose not to renew it.

I haven’t heard of any renewals being knocked back, but there’s always the possibility there.

In all honesty, all the E3 holders I know that wanted to stay in the US and not worry about the E3 long term, have all found their own way to a green card.

An update on Silver Airways.

They still have the E3 info on their website:

https://www.silverairways.com/careers

And they've just negotiated a new contract with what they say are improvements:

Just FWIW

just to ask advice
I have interviews with some regionals and there asking if I have a record I got caught dui 25 yrs ago it doesn’t show on my record it’s gone but the job offer says I must list all crimes
plus my driving record is not to good either speeding but no tickets for 10 yrs should I tell them and possibly get no job or not tell them with chance of being found out and sacked
this isn’t fair I’m paying twice for my mistakes
Any suggestions
regards

Quite the conundrum. If it was simply a speeding ticket, I’d say you’d probably be ok but with a DUI you’re most likely going to be sunk. The one thing pretty much every airline will fire you for without thinking twice, is lying or being dishonest. You “could” leave it off your app but given the Australian thoroughness with records and red-tape, I’d be surprised if it doesn’t come up and then you’ll be out the door.
You never know until you try but I’m not sure there’s anything else you can do but be honest and work on a mea culpa that shows you’ve learnt form the experience and how you’ve changed as a person. Unfortunately, along with anything related to recreational pharmaceuticals, there’s a 90% chance you won’t get a job with a DUI on your record. Also, I’m pretty sure you have to list on your FAA medical, any DUI’s, so there are multiple apps you’d have to choose to either be honest on or falsify.

There’s a long history of pilots and alcohol and no airline wants to take the chance one of their pilots ends up on the morning news.
