Perhaps the gentleman who so nicely shared the photos of the salary conditions got hired, maybe he´ll respond. Unfortunately some loser management clown appears to have bullied the poster into removing it form this site.

Meanwhile, our colleagues from across the pond has something to add to the story, and this is recent info details;

It appears that not many people are being hired in Europe. Though they have had plans for a large expansion onto the European market, they seem to have been reduced substantially, however.
The interview process is professional, no question.

Sounds promising! I wonder what would stopped their plans? Bad planning?

Hey guys, no one mention something I am curious about.
Are there Direct Entry Captain positions FJ Europe, or one should always expect to start as FO?
I was contacted today for a phone interview, I will give some feedback in due time

Are you refering to Flexjet Europe or US? Just asking, since your locating indicates US. Best of luck with it anyways.

Hi guys,

Sharing some info.
I did my phone interview recently.
It went smooth and professional, was more of a talk than an interview.
All explanations ware given, and IMO, working conditions are really good, with a proper way to pay taxes in a promising growing environment.
It all seemed really organized and well planned.
The salary is not great and making 50.000 gross a year, plus per diem and other bonuses as an FO may be short for some who can get a DEC or fast track somewhere else.
I have no idea how much is the PIC salary, but it will be better for sure, and given the other conditions, it seems a good place to work, with good perspectives of new jets, longer routes, and a decent life for those who are tired of flying a big bus in repeated routes eeeevery single day.
I have no idea if I was accepted for the next step though.

Good luck to all !

Thanks for sharing your experience - good on you for doing so.
It sounds interesting, as you said, IF you're recently new to flying and don't feel like doing the hamster wheel. However, if this is the deal for F/Os I doubt the deal for experienced PIC are of interest to those of us who would consider jumping ship. The industry if plagued with low balling and hopefully the companies and clients will be paying the price for this approach in the time to come.

Buddy of mine was accepted for the next stage back in the summer but still has to get the invite for the interview and the assessment. He is in doubt about how serious they really are with their recruitment.

I know for a fact that guys have been called, passed sim and interview, got call and set up for final phone interview and then offered contracts. That’s all over past 3-4 months.

That's not reassuring for a guy who is currently without a job..

It's gotten real quiet on Flexjet Europe. Anyone heard anything? Anyone been invited or hired recently? What are their plans for 2020?

Thanks

I think hiring is on hold at present. Anybody who is being called is being put in a hold pool, not straight onto the books just yet, so i have heard.

Plans and their implementation followed by reality checks. If reality is not corresponding to an over optimistic plan - you´re better of rethinking that plan. I bet you, that´s what´s going one at Flexjet Europe at the moment. It takes a lot more than ambitions and perfect plans to enter the market under the current circumstances. I´d love to see Flexjet succed, but it might not be as easy as they had panned it out.

No news

No news at all.

I have a very good friend who passed all the interview process with them last year and they apparently stopped recruiting.
The funny thing is that my colleague hasn’t received any further news since December and the recruiting team doesn’t even reply to his messages...

Very unprofessional. No comments...
