"Knowing somebody on the inside" will not help you through SAS selection, as opposed to certain other companies.

So if you if you want to join SAS, dont despair about the lack of "connections".

So nobody wants to publish the payscale here? If anybody has it then would they mind sending it by PM?

r det ingen som vill publicera den hade jag verkligen uppskattat ett privat meddelande.

New payscale

Hi,

If you have the payscale (IF you have it...), could you please at least update the figures on following website: http://www.pilotjobsnetwork.com/jobs...Airline_System

I think loads of people i Scandinavia would appreciate it a lot!

So, did they get enough applications from previous employees, or will they need more drivers from the outside?

A few of you guys mention the new pay scale. For us outside the company, would it be possible to publish it anonymised here in this forum or on SAS - Scandinavian Airline System pilot jobs, payscales and entry requirements. (or PM me).

Please!

18 MAR 2013: SAS is recruiting new CRJ pilots
With an immediately need for pilots with CRJ rating , SAS is now welcoming qualified pilots to register there application via the " Apply link" in the menu.
Since restrictions apply to this recruitment process, pilots who already have a general application with SAS will have to apply again.
These positions requires a CRJ typerating, and a number applicant should expect to available for training with short notice

Things seems to be moving

Are there separate pay scales for the CRJ and the 737?

More info. on their website about T&Cs:

http://www.flysas.com/en/SAS-Pilot/Salary--benefits/

The salary seems very low. Lower than what has been mentioned here as well. However the work scheme, pension and vacation seems quite nice.

Anyone care to share what to expect in per diem pay?

SK-pilot mentioned between 400-1000dkr, but is that per flight/work day, or how does that work and is it 100% tax-free?

Edit : Thank you, SK-pilot, for clearing this up and the valuable information to the thread

If you are a former employee or experienced pilot, this might be low for you, but that salary is quite good for us younger guys.
I heard that the CRJ salary will be lower than for the A320 series. I don't know how it works with the 737.

I would take it any day, but I don't have the CRJ or 737 rating.

Agree if you are looking for your first (or almost first) job, and I guess the pay-scales are okay, but I would be very surprised, if SAS are looking for inexperienced people... But you never know, could be a part of their new strategy. Would be a nice change for all the lowtimers out there

@Mir: No - it is what I said: Yearly salary is 330.000 based on monthly salary plus some fixed extras for vacation etc, giving a total of appr 350.000 for CRJ.

Per-diem is per 24 hrs, and would range between 5000 and 10.000 per month, depending on how many nightstops you get. CRJ pilots are in the high end unless you bid only day trips. Taxation is depending on where you live. I live in Norway and are based in CPH, which result in no tax on per-diem.

Sk-pilot thanks alot for your valuable inputs in this thread. Alot of people are "very insatta" but have only been talking out of their hat. Your information has been very correct so far.

What is the difference between regional and main? is it as simple that CRJ is regional and 737 is main? thus the difference in pay?

Regional is less than 100 seats (i.e; as of today, only the CRJ) - main is all A/C types 100+ seats.

Are there any updated figures on the number of new recruitments?
How is the recruitment process going to be? will it be conducted by Rekryteringscentrum or equivalent as earlier?

On vacation now, and not very updated, but never heard about Rekryteringscentrum (did they do the prosess 12 years ago...?). Quite a few of my colleagues have joined the recruitment board as interviewers, so I thought it would be an internal SAS process, but maybe some external company are involved as well? I don't know...

Regarding numbers, most of the 40 pilots required during spring will be external new-hires, and the rumor is that SAS require at least the same number of pilots during the automn. Probably more...

Didnt you guys just fire more crew? Or was that just new T&Cs that came into effect?

Never thought you were even thinking about employing new crew after all this... amazed. What happened?

Dont tell me you are expanding!

That sounds very promising. I wonder what type of profile they will look for. With my young age and not very academic background I hope that I will not be put too far back in the pile.

Does anyone know how many applications they got when the site was open?

I heard rumors of 2000 , If only 20% of these are scandis with a rating on the types chances are at 10%.

Fired some pilots in 2010, but they all got re-hired within a year.

The hiring now is mainly due to an existing and planned expansion of 5% pr year, which amount to quite a lot of new pilots since we are appr 1500 pilots today. In addition, 50-60 pilots will reach retirement during the next year, and quite a few are going for an early retirement deal combined with flying their last years for Etihad.

The demand is reduced quite a lot due to the concessions given last autumn, with more working hours on each pilot, but still there is a demand for 40 new pilots during the spring, and planned at least the same amount during the autumn...
