Salary breakdown?

I've followed the SIA Cargo thread over the past couple of years and gleaned some good information from that particular thread.

What is Main Line like?
Can someone please break down the $210 000 annual salary.

Does that number include housing and education allowances? Per-diems?

I know there were problems in the past with SIA cargo on what was promised during the interview versus what was actually delivered. Has that now been corrected?

Appreciate any information,

Regards,

Chapola

I hear that we will shortly witness an unofficial exchange of crews between SIA and VAustralia. VA will pinch some B777 Cpts and SIA will then pinch some Australian pilots with an Australian Base of choice.

Jetblue,

If that is true what experience levels are they after?

Cheers

SIA salary

Chapola you may rest assured that no SIA Captain earns $210.000 annualy. The real numbers are much,much higher. Even for the cargo boys. The last years with the healthy bonuses, 13th salary, annual completion bonus, education and house allowances + share options the picture is way,way different. To all SIA wannabes two thumbs up. The DEC program most likely to be restarted march-june 2009. Best regards and good luck to all.....

74world my hat is off mate
Been told Captains needed early next year, because we are fat on Captains in almost every department. Most likely collecting CVs or something new's going on. Good luck to everyone.

Maybe we have "fat Captains" in many departments but recently heard that we are actually short. Also there are people not wanting to renew their contracts.....

I don't have the exact numbers but Cargo is also seeing some significant activity on the recruiting front. Quite a few have left/are about to leave for the sand pit - most citing inadequate Housing/Education Allowance as major 'push' factors.

Application Form for DEC at SQ

The advert in Flight refers to an application form available at the singaporeair website.The only reference I can find on the careers website is for Cadet Pilot applications.There is an application form for Cadets which, at a push, would suffice for a DEC position but it is certainly not what would be expected. Am I missing something obvious here or have SQ perhaps got the ad placed in Flight before their website has been updated?

The Flight ad does allow the option of sending an application/CV via the magazine's own system--this seems a little simplistic as I recall many years ago the SQ form being complex with many documents required.

Suggestions most welcome.

Regards,
Caissa

That's SQ for you I'm afraid....a great place to live and work but their in house "IT and electronic" set up is a shambles. If you manage to get an application form somehow, by all means try it online but if you can, fill it out manually and send it in by mail or even better if you know someone here get them to drop it in personally as well.....not to say that it wont work online but.... belts and braces!!!

Curious how strict the SIA rectuiters are re the 3000 hrs on international ops. The international ops part could be open to interpretation. Is anyone aware of B737NG Captains getting a direct entry command on the B777 with SIA?

737 captains were accepted before with sq cargo but as 1st officers only and with the promise of an earlier than normal upgrade, as to if any of them got it I dont know

No command course in SIA Cargo for anyone yet, but I believe that there are some plans for command courses for the future. However, this being Singapore, there is (surprise, surprise) a catch. If you are an F/O on contract terms you have to accept a local contract for (I believe) a period of 2 years before being 'considered' for command. If you have 2 children in school in Singapore then thats a combined loss of Housing and Education Allowance of $6150 per month - for at least 24 months - and all for the 'chance' of a command!

Hardly surpising then that we have a lot of experienced and capable F/Os on short finals to the sand pit and Japan.

Quick question.

Hi guys,

For a DEC on the 330, let's say an applicant has 6750 TT, with 2400 PIC all on the A320, what are the chances?

Does the 7000 TT 3000 PIC stand firm?

Thanks...

Guys - SQ will move the goal posts to suit their EVERY whim - you just don't know until you apply. 6 years ago mainline recruited numerous blokes onto the 777, who had 320 or 737 command time, and having flown most of their time in the same country.

Jetblue - the SIA recruiters are usually cadet pilots in between training who get seconded to "help" the 4 floor staff. They read an application and file it according to the criteria of the day!
