Indeed the salary seems average compared with the right outfits (not taking into account that one will work 1day extra compared with NJ)

What about taxation, are you taxed in the UK or can someone use an offshore account? 😃

Do you get that in writing or just a carrot on a stick though? I'm sure the 400XTi can be a fun plane to fly but if after those two years you don't get the promised position/chance to upgrade to something a bit more "pilot comfortable" you end up with a fairly useless rating to go find a better job with.

Well, considering the aircraft types emb legacy and nextant, and the rotational roster, IŽm actually not sure that the conditions disclosed above are substandard in Europe - but I stand corrected. However, I do not believe that the company will be able to retain the best of their crew going into the future, as those will likely be looking for better opportunities (CoS, pay, etc.) soon enough, as the opportunities arises. The industry, including biz jet aviation, is facing a supply issue (of qualified and skilled candidates) and the race to the bottom has come to an end. Employers are now facing the reality of the market, and that they have to put forward better employement conditions to retain and attract.

I was given a selection of dates for the face to face interview at the end of the phone interview, then a couple days later confirmed by email.

I'm totally extraneous to the biz jet world, so don't kill me: I've read about a 15/15 roster.
What are the ON days like? Do you get 15 standby and fly as requested on a daily basis or you already know where you'll be flying to and for how long?

Looking at charter operation - it can be both, depends on your operation/sales department and how they share the info with the cockpit crews.
Sometimes they sell flights a month in advance but it will be assigned to an a/c only few days before - thats when you will know about it.
There is also always the chance for last minute charters/AOG support flights.
Coud be different with owner only operation (ie. no charter)
My current experience is to know about 2-3 days beforehand where I will be, if there is no ad-hoc flights coming in.

I wonder if anybody was hired?

I know 5 people attending the selection process at Burgess Hill at different dates, all liked the friendly & fair atmosphere. But nobody was hired.
I wonder if they really hire people?

I heard from a friend who did the interview, they are looking for pilots having already experience in corporate/VIP flights.
I don't know for your friends Herman ?

Ah, there are not so many Legacy operators in Germany, then it was a wrong guess.

My understanding is the first Legacy's operated by SIRO are crewed with all ex Italian Airforce pilots.

No, you did not, but I deducted it wrongly from your user-name here.
