Do you know if they’ve been called for the citation or the global/ challenger fleet? Or is it the same assessment for both? Also, Do you know how many pilots are they recruiting this time?

Thank you!

Is there any insider with updates on how the selection process is going?. The job position opened end of April and I haven't heard anything from them, neither a positive nor negative response. The portal still shows under review. Any sort of update would be appreciated. Thanks

Hey Mercuzio, I understand from a recent candidate that interviews and assessments have taken place in Berlin and job offers have gone out already. There were 84 applicants and approximately half, I believe, got the job offer. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news... ☹

Thanks for sharing the info Chief!…👍🏻 I consider them a very serious company, I find it disappointing they haven't bothered to send a rejection email to inform at least.

it’s quite the norm that a company firstly focuses on the people the they recruited and then perhaps (underlined PERHAPS), have the diligence of informing the unsuccessful candidate of his position. Surely if you’ve had a candidate through the actual recruitment assessment you’d expect the company to reply with the outcome - even from Vistajet. As previously mentioned, I passed the assessment back in 2010ish, received the email with the positive outcome and info that I’d be contacted by the accountable manager shortly, however this never happened. So I don’t really know if I’d put VistaJet in the category of professional.

Netjets have large cabin bizjets too.. A bit cooler than eating peanuts and work for a clown.

1) I've heard that crew are not given lunch/crew meals because the crew is told that's what their per Diems are for? Is this correct or just a false rumor? Again the other three mentioned are offering this. I do know that two of the other operators even pay for the crew dinner on their crew cards up to X amount but I wouldn't expect that from Vistajet.

2) What are the crew bases for Vistajet? Is it similar to that of DHL Leipzig? In other words, DHL crew are told to live in Leipzig but most don't, they live elsewhere.

3) Vista recently bought XOjet, XOjet has similar contracts to that of Netjets, Flexjet etc. Does this mean or Vistajet Europe might start to offer their crew the same as what they offer their US-based crew?
Go work for managed private jet clients instead of these low ballers mentioned. Get your per diems and don´t worry! Any of the mentioned companies are good as a stepping stone and for sure good training environments for less experienced pilots on their way. Later on, find you private gig, and you´ll never look back. Good luck.

....because not enough Global F/Os want to do their upgrades on the XLS, it seems. They will try to sit it out on the Global and upgrade there.

Well that’s a massive F*** You to existing FO’s waiting for upgrade and the PICs of smaller fleet.

Nice way to motivate your crews in the run up to an inevitable busy period.

I'm informed somewhat reliably that it's because they have run out of suitable command candidates.

It happens guys. When recruitment is heavily focussed on FOs for many years and then suddenly demand hits the roof.

In that case, what are their upgrade requirements then?

Might I finally get a start date then? - I've only been waiting 13 years for a call from Mr Ambs for joining instructions!

Joe Le Taxi, you've said that at least 3 times in 10 years, have you sent them 3 mails asking for an update?

Break Break. Looking at LinkedIn, VJ's First Officer demographic is a little bit like RYR's....very young and freshfaced.
