Det er sgu godt nok en lav løn SAS tilbyder nu om dage! Det er vist Thomas Cook man skal se efter, hvis man vil hjem til Skandinavien. Trist at et godt job er blevet så fesent. Det positive spin er at det nok mest er uerfarne eller arbejdsløse piloter, der vil blive tiltrukket af 29.000 kr/måned.

TC Scandinavia...

Start on basic salary -2 years.

FO for the next 10-15 years.

Every capt has their own interpretation of company SOP.

Sounds really great. Sure lots of days off to spend all your money.

I am way better off away from little Scandinavia.

Who knows- ask me again in 15 years and it might be different?

Probably not though.

There is no doubt that the terms and conditions in SAS has taken a turn for the worse in the last 10 years.
That said, this thread is about the first round of recruitment in this company since 2001, I think people are interested in the present recruitment process and the present terms. In this, SK pilot is providing factual information, he is not part of management, just a pilot trying to give advice.

Hawkeye is not providing factual information, his dislike for the company and it's management is quite clear, what I cannot understand is his obvious dislike for the pilots in the company.

I am on a leave of absence from SAS, currently working in China, but scheduled to return to SAS soon.
I have experienced first hand three transitions since my initial training in SAS, none of them took more than 5 weeks, from start of type rating until I was released on the line. That is a fact, no matter what Hawkeye might have "heard", from some unknown source.

Finally, starting salary might not be very good, but you are a direct employee of a Scandinavian company, with a pension, insurance, sick pay, and ID tickets with most major airlines.

Tror nu at Viking taler om Thomas Cook, da jeg nævnte at de tilbyder en, i mine øjne, langt mere attraktiv pakke end SAS. Hvis man vil hjem til Skandinavien, er der jo ikke så mange valgmuligheder, da man jo nok skal være desperat for at søge i SunAir og DAT. JT har jo heller ikke ligefrem en prangende pakke.

Low cost - the way to go

Apart from getting paid fat salaries, what is SAS management actually doing? Cutting cost is an accounting job not managerial. LH is considering all options.

Let's keep this thread about the recruitment situation, outlook and process at SAS please.

There are many other threads for their uniforms, sop, fleet, financial situation, management, scandinavian welfare systems, 5 months of linetraining, arrogance in security, what they eat for breakfast etc.

It's highly relevant to know what your current and/or future employer has in mind in terms of expansion, fleet renewal etc. which all have an impact on the career. At least that's what I've always asked during an interview, but maybe because I had a choice. Look what happened at GF. A lot of jocks were left stranded when the airline decided to rid itself from a bunch of metal.

Well informed and educated decisions seem to have less likelyhood of going south on a personal level. A similar reason for digesting a TAF.

Have you tried calling HR?


Surely you will find out some answers there.

If this huge recruitment is going on, they should give out some info one could think...

Careful with the Galley FM.

The it looks like things are moving at least. Does anyone know when the 737 recruitments will start?

The website says that the starting salary is 28000kr, not saying anything about that the "main segment" earns more as a starting salary. I've heard from some places that this number should be 35500kr for the 737 fleet.

12 New-hires just recruited mostly for immediate start in April/May. Most, if not all, are ex Cimber with CRJ rating and experience, thus eliminating the possibility of remaining ex-SAS pilots to return. The total requirement for 2013 is now 80 pilots (CRJ & 737). Huge requirement for pilots as SAS has neglected to hire pilots since 2000. Looking at approx 100 pilots next year due to pilot retirement. The Etihad deal has so far failed to materialize...

Very interesting reading. Since I was "let go" from SAS in 2004, I have not heard a thing. Contacted the union a couple of years ago and they told me in an e-mail that, us pilots would be offered rehiring back to SAS prior to any hiring off the street. Guess not.......

Furthermore, can anyone who worked for SAS prior to the layoffs in 2004 and returned tell me if you retained your seniority number and place on the list and also if you went back at your longevity pay you had when we got laid off?

Or were you put on the bottom of the list behind all the Braatens pilots who were hired after our hire date at SAS.. I was an early 99 hire.

Very curious about what happened.

SAS will start recruiting for the 737 with ARN base quite soon, numbers not known but I think they need more than a few.
The plan is also to employ non rated pilots in CPH for the CRJ as there are very few available with that rating.
Today there are pilots with OSL and CPH base flying out of ARN, I suppose they wanna get them back to their bases before recruiting to A320 in CPH or 737 in OSL.

All who got laid off and who left a forwarding address should have been contacted last year. All who wanted to return have done so and are now flying the line. This includes people who flew left seat with the local competitors as well as in the sandbox.
The first class of off the street new hires recently started class.

That's probably not going to happen in the near future, we're talking several years in best case...

Is there nobody who could share some details regarding the salary levels on B737 on the new agreement? The only thing available so far is the stuff released on sasgroup.net (27000kr start + 15% pension contribution). Would be very thankful for some more info, salary after 3, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 24 years for example. Anyone?
