Hi, CX has begun their hiring process for the foreigners again a few days ago.
Anyone here has applied for DESO position?

Cathay Pacific SO Recent Opening

Has anybody here applied to the recent job opening for the second officer position at Cathay Pacific?

If anybody has applied in the past, how long does it usually take for a response and what was the whole experience like? I'm intrigued to find out as I have never considered Cathay Pacific as a potential opportunity available until I saw this opening on Latest Pilot Jobs.

All the best!

I think apart from the interview process and experience, the question you should ask yourself is, am I willing to relocate to Hong Kong and work for Cathay given to the current toxic work culture and the things happening in Hong Kong, because these two are the main reasons that drives experienced expat pilots to leave CX.

The other problem is that what CX offers you is a dead end career. There is an overwhelming probability that you will never get promoted and will not acquire experience to move your career outside. This is because the corporate believe (and have explicitly said) that it is cheaper to hire an external FO than to train an SO into the right seat, and that the SO is easily replaceable. They won't tell you this of course, and will try to sell you the job. If you don't believe this, then try contacting any current/former CX SO to verify.

CX is a good job to pay for your master degree !
No career prospects internally, if you think of upgrading, make a bit of experience and bail out consider that SOs are sitting on year 7 at the moment.
Also you need a plan to have a license you can use when you get out.
Big no no unless you are single or your Mrs can work.
At the moment toxic management, working conditions are terrible due covid with no light in sight, travelling is difficult, commuting impossible, HK is under chinese dictatorship, hundreds leaving.
Do your homework.

Boulanger is quite right.
SOs sitting on 6+ years, company looking to hire DEFOs.
Great to pay your master degree !
If you are a DEFO great for heavy time, then apply to Atlas !
Salary down 50-60%, toxic management, hardest working conditions in the world due Covid, people leaving in hundreds.
You would need a proper license to work in EU or NAM if you leave and right to live and work.
China dictatorship is here, don’t forget, HK is not the amazing places it used to be.
BTW unless you are single or your Mrs can get a decent job, forget it.
Covid restrictions to stay for some time, decisions made by the great leader in Bejing.
