What is Asiana like to work for?? Really??

Ok, so I've got a call from these guys and I would really like to know from somebody out there what it's like. The schedules, the treatment, the nights away from base, can you get back home every so often????? Thanks in advance...

You don't see anybody moaning about Asiana on this forum do you? If you aren't willing to adapt a little bit then stay home. Everyone up here is quite happy actually, treated well, ya gotta be professional, no cowboys, if you fit the bill then have a go.

A couple of questions, please:

1) Monthly days OFF for 744 are advertised as 12 days. Is this correct? And do you get these days CONSECUTIVELY?

2) How often do you get home? Every month, like in KAL? Do you get home by deadheading on GD, or using your own travel entitlements?

3) What have the monthly per-diems averaged out as? Are per-diems fixed across the board, or are they country/area specific to reflect varying actual subsistance costs?

4) How would you rate the relationship with the local cockpit crew/cabin crew? Is there much animosity/hostility toward expats?

5) Are you happy with what scheduling is doing?

6) If you had to list your top 5 pet peeves, what would they be?

At the risk of appearing like a survey, I ask these questions because i had not asked some of these when i came to my present outfit. It ended up as a bit of a surprise, but nothing that couldn't be "worked around", so as i plan another move again, i am attempting to obtain this information to have a clearer picture of a month in the life of Asiana. Thanks

A friend of mine went there on the B767. Not very good for this A/C type as these pilots are based in Seoul. Also according to his contract you wait 6 months before you start accumulating any leave! Money not bad but the system is not flexible when it comes to any changes of roster you may want. Might be better for 777/744 but it would be best to have a good look at the contract first. Korean is the better bet.
Good luck
