If you like to be shafted from behind I can recommend ijm. Seriously, the biggest mistake in my career! FTL's do exist, but are totally ignored. Getting paid is a gamble. At the end you won't. The owner, FF, is well known in the industry and has few friends.
Only as a last resort!

@kelly: I friend of mine wants to join IJM's technical department. Do you/or anybody else have any idea if IJM is a good company - for engineering - or should he serach further?

Thanks!

Advertising for type rated Falcon 900 ex easy FO. 2600 + per diem... Race to the bottom. Im sure they'll have lots of eager "pilots" ready to sign the dotted line.

I like the text in the add

Our employees are our most valuable asset, therefore we provide excellent working conditions and emphasize that every employee feels comfortable in our company.
Makes you wonder why they pay their most valuable asset a mere 2600 euro+per diem. Btw per diem in Austria is 32 euro per day, so that won't help much either.

Sounds like a top notch place to work.. No doubt that they will be attracting the best of the best pilots that money can buy..

They're not as bad as Avcon Jet, but only by an extremely small margin.
It is indeed a race to the bottom here in western Austria

Why is Austria and also some companies in Germany so bad in comparison to the rest.

It's where all the clients go who can't afford, or don't want to pay for, Swiss (or conscientious British) management.
How to run an Austrian AOC:
- Sweet-talk an owner into giving you his plane, based on the premise that it's a good investment (not usually the case)
- Put it on the charter market at hilariously low prices (e.g. 17k return Split-Paris in a CL30)
- Charter the butt off the plane
- Charge the owner huge fees to cover the cost of operating the plane, while pointing out that you can't charter it any more
- Charge the owner further fees for maintenance and interior refurb after 3 years because it's been trashed by charter pax
- Sell him a new plane after 5-7 years and start all over again

The thing is, principals don't help themselves - I intimately know a small company here that tried to charge their client real prices for operating the plane, while promising to give him every penny of charter revenue. The client recoiled in horror, and, overnight, the plane is at a different company, operating to the above model...

And before anyone says I sound jaded, at one time I made my living from this same model. The more flights, the more I earned. Hurrah!

Edit: I guess this is also good for charter customers too. Double hurrah!

Dream on IJM!

I'll be very surprised if they find anyone to accept that F900 job on that salary.

There was recently a round of interviews calling for a rated F900 FO in Europe on better wages and there was not a single F900 pilot at said interview. So they hired a non rated pilot. Doesn't seem to be many rated pilots about.

Advertising again. This time €5k GROSS (!!) for a Falcon 2000LX captain....this is really showing how bad our industry has become.... I sincerely hope no one is stupid enough to apply with these T&Cs.

The 400 extra are for covering the increased risk for flying a twin only.

Their GLEX will be on the move to a new operator soon. Also, the rumours of 2x GL5T coming are probably wrong.
