as far as i know they recruited as many as they needed, but this was last year, and with the postponing of the base....im guessing they'l need more (i know a lot of people took other jobs) so i would keep an eye out, just incase

Update

Hey guys, my friend emailed maxjet the other day to ask if they are going to start recruiting soon and he had a reply saying they have no plans to open a uk base now or in the near future. They told him to check internet as if they do decide to it will be posted on there. Can you believe it? Were they just not going to tell us?

Angry Surprise surprise

Its the 2nd time they've recruited for the STN base and yet again they've changed their minds. Not really surprised by this, but an email would've been nice. I emailed both Christine's over 2 weeks ago and haven't heard anything. Was looking forward to a month in Atlanta.

O well.

Thank you for your email inquiry.

, all I can offer at this point is that when the plans for the TN base are finalized, we will contact you.

not a no or a yes, but still hope then.

I wouldn't be surprised if you end up waiting for another year before Maxjet take the chance of opening a base at Stansted with British crew members. You're better off applying to easyJet whilst you're waiting. Get some good experience on short haul and see if you like the job. If you enjoy it at easyJet you'll love it at Maxjet (if they do end up opening a base)

That's assuming you have no previous flying experience. I've been at easyJet here at STN for the last 18 months and have loved it. Great crew, nice reliable rosters, the new uniform is cool and the pay isnt bad either!

Anyway good luck!

Unhappy

http://www.maxjet.com/
I feel very sorry for the staff, what a time to be made redundant on Christmas eve.

"Dear Friends of MAXjet:

It is with deep regret that I must inform you that MAXjet filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy on 24 December 2007. With today’s fuel prices and the resulting impact on the credit climate for airlines, we are forced to take this drastic measure. Our top priority is to assist our customers, particularly those who already have begun their travel with us, in securing alternative flight accommodations.

MAXjet has contracted with Eos Airlines for seats on Eos’ scheduled all-Premium service to accommodate passengers awaiting a return flight between New York and London. Passengers needing return travel between London, Los Angeles and Las Vegas will be contacted regarding their flight re-accommodations. Any customers who choose to make flight accommodations directly should seek a refund from their point of purchase (credit card or travel agency) for the unused leg of their journey.

We have also secured hotel rooms in London, New York, Las Vegas and Los Angeles through early January 2008 which we will provide to affected passengers whose travel plans have been disrupted.

On behalf of the entire MAXjet family, we extend our apologies to you for the inconvenience. We are extremely saddened to discontinue a service that we so passionately believe in, and we thank our loyal flyers who helped build MAXjet since our start in 2005.


Sincerely,

William D. Stockbridge
President and CEO
"
