I've done both low hour jobs now back to a high time gig getting to the age more time on the ground is a good thing that's 26 years of flying for you.

Pprune is a great tool, especially for finding out that you didn't get an interview.

How hard is it for them to reply?

I'd be pretty surprised you didn't get some contact. I didn't even bother doing the stage 1 testing after seeing the pay packet, still got an email saying I passed stage 1 and an invitation to stage 2. I ignored stage 2 and then literally got a phone call from the company asking me to fly down for an interview.

Methinks they're having a hard time finding crew to accept those T&C's.

Your spot on, no one on the Border Protection side of things with the exception of a couple who want to move to Melbourne are interested.

Many of the posts on here complain about how companies never respond to their job applications - I agree with all of them, especially when you meet their requirements and they don't even have the decency to send a standard "Dear John" letter. But, it goes both ways -

In my view, that's pretty ordinary not having the decency to let them know you weren't continuing with your application, irrespective of the pay (which I agree is below the mark...)

cobham CL604

I am with you on the stage 1 and stage 2 @ Uber .
I ignored the stage 1 and reluctantly did the stage 2 with the exception of virtual interview . I have no desire on the FO WAGES FOR ONLY $72K and fly CL604. I pretty much laughed at the package .

I haven't heard anything since than therefore I consider myself out of the list.
cobham is a good company to work for but with a condition like the above it's very hard for me to even leave my GA job which I would like to but I a long run I am better off here to say the least .

All the best to those who got the interview .

I should have mentioned that I deleted my application from their website after the pay packet was released. Otherwise I would agree with you.

Pay increase may be a good start way below industry standard for a specialized role.

Have they only interviewed for Perth or all bases?


I wonder how they went for Observer positions? Most would be coming over from Aerorescue I would think.
