New Second Officers on board?

Following Cortisol's Capt - JFO post, rumours out today that (newly hired) SO waiting for their start date.
No local PRs heard anything yet from recruitment as far as I know.

Did anyone hear anything? What's your guess?

Safe flight to those flying. Goodluck and all the best to those waiting. Stay safe to everyone!!

I emailed them and was told to get in touch with them at the start of 2022. But may have to interview again.

Well passing the interview again isn't too bad. The real question is if I would want to join them now.

I'm not even going to get started on the muppet above as he is a professional time waster.

You really need to keep ideas to yourself with prospective employers. Easy enough to work out who you are from your history. The guys in the recruitment department love checking this place and enjoy a yarn about their findings. Yes we moan about the job here but the difference is that we have been mostly here and loyal to the company for a while now.

Ok rant over, taking the ferry to DB for a coffee.

Would it even be possible NOT to pass the interview?

If you're stupid enough to accept this job on COS18 living in Hong Kong, accept the soul destroying dreadful career that cx has on offer, the cathay recruiters will love you to bits. Easy peasy lemon squeazy.

You'll regret it in a few years, and you've been warned, but it won't stop people.

When COS08 local was considered a stepping stone by a lot of pilots who came in, got a type rating, converted it to an EASA, FAA, CASA licence and then went home, I can just imagine what POS18 would be like.

I know senior management have aired their concern with the Directors about the amount of people leaving and the Directors couldn’t care less.

Then when FOP exceeds its budget for the year, they’ll blame the “highly paid” pilots and request further pay cuts all because they didn’t listen to their senior managers.

I am a HK PR.

I wish I was USA PR. Could have applied to all sorts of flying jobs.

If the rumors of people leaving CX are true, how can they expect to maintain any flying schedule when HK eventually opens up?

That will be a problem for the next DFO/Director not the current ones so they don’t care.

Yeah. What's more is that Australia is still closed so they can't send people to FTA.

As usual CX will come out smelling like a rose... There are always people willing to come. The govt will make a special deal. All captain's will be appointed trainers. It's too easy for them to solve problems.

By the time that happens CX will not have any captains. The offer of a commuting/reverse roster by other major carriers will now be too enticing to give up.

Emirates**
Various Chinese Carriers
Vietnam Airlines
Korean Airlines
ANA
Fiji Airways

** No commuting roster but if you do the maths, it’s better than POS 18
