Actually, the first two pages had lots of info that should have been of interest to the OP.

But with no further input or queries from them, the thread found its own course!

A bit like how a normal conversation progresses.

legally it is charlie charlie charlie. However they use the callsign Triple Charlie. Pretty simple to be honest, and got me buggered why you all have such a huge issue over it. I can tell you that CCC is a nice machine inside and out.

What is the likelihood for this job advert not being a HR formality(ie somebody already has the job, friend of a friend type thing) and there is an actual interview and recruitment process for hopefuls such as myself who have the all the minimums by a long way?

Just looking for a genuine and authentic answer from somebody who actually knows. Not looking to stir the pot. Thank you all

Anyone able to provide terms and conditions including pay? What is the morale like? I know they travel to SE Asia a reasonable amount, how many days a month away is typical?

Thanks

Have you applied? I think the only way you will get that information is if you get invited for an interview. Big ask expecting to hear from the half dozen or so pilot's that Crown employ to tell all on this forum!

Are there any jobs going at Crown? I have heard that they have had a high turnover of Chief Pilots and crew in the last couple of years.

I've heard that there are far more jobs available within the Crown Chinese gaming marketing division. (Apparently, there's a few Crown staff that the Chinese Government now prefer to make unavailable to them.)

Flying a biz jet with a cabin full of cigarette smokers wouldn't be my first choice..

Indeed gerry, stacking shelves at Woolies is probably a better alternative.

Stacking shelves at Woolies may be a boring choice. But you may have a much longer life than carting Crown smoking whales in your cabin.

Perhaps talk to some of their previous incumbents?

Thanks gerry, I have managed to talk to a couple (apparently there are many)! Woolies looking good at this stage.

Rather than stacking shelves you could always apply for an inside job in the department that might get you noticed:

Tech Records & Pubs, Ops, FA.......

Ironic that the native mandarin speaker's pronunciation of R can make it sound like L....I have heard, so I guess it'd be good if you spoke mandarin too.

Just so there's no missunderstandings.

More to the point, what are the tips like? once upon a time, a long, long time ago I used to fly trainers, jockeys and punters around UK and Europe, never got a brass farthing from the trainers and jockeys, even when they had a winner but the punters were always good for a nice big note
