Yes, 12 per year. But no seniority list. Case to case offer, the first guy to join as FO is still an FO.

I don't have complete stats. Heard it from a guy who joined them during early days on 777. He is now a 787 capt. Probably command comes for the best.

He is right, the first FO in Scoot, Mr. "spiky hair", is still and FO and probably will always be, at least in Scoot. His chances were slim with former chief pilot, now with the new chief pilot and his gang probably no chance at all.

Command in Scoot does not necessarily comes for the best but for the closer to management, for instance, the flying skills of all the local guys that got promoted on first batch was more than questionable however they got the left seat based on political reason, promotion of local talent, if I remember correct.

So you saying Scoot is easier for command as compared to their parent company SIA? Heard scoot command is only 3 months long..

Callback after interview

Hey Guys ,

I personally know of 2 people who went for the DEC 320 interview over a month ago. None of them have heard back from scoot. I have heard from others as well in the past that all went well at the interview but scoot never got back to them or replied to any of their emails.
Anyone else heard about anything like this?
I have my interview scheduled for end of the month and I'm wondering if it's going to be all the same.
I don't understand why they'd call you for an interview an invest their time in it if they weren't keen on recruiting. Or do they just not care about sending you an email if you weren't up to their perceived standard.

ZOCC,
all will be revealed in your interview with HR.
Have you read through this thread, every page of it?
All the info. here is true and past interview experience has been documented here as well.
Nothing has changed. Just be prepared to pay....and pay...and pay.
Singapore is the most expensive country to live in .....its not easy here.

Flyingchipmunk, most of the talk here has been about the 787 and the training cost / bond involved.
I'm 320 rated with 3000 PIC on type , I believe I don't have to pay for training . Only the Psychometry test + licensing costs , while this is not ideal I do think it's only a small hurdle. Once you are passed that I feel like the big picture seems much more comfy.

16000 SGD post tax seems like an average pay packet.

ZOCC, you sound like a nice guy.
Yes S$16k after tax is spot on....that's about 80hrs flying mind you.

If you have family, wife not planning to work, have to put kids in school, you will quickly realise that HK Airlines and the Middle East are the only places you want to be at.

SG is super expensive and you will be working really hard for this S$16k.

At HKA, you're looking at around S$17k after rent for a 2 bed condo and after taxes. That is based on 50hrs. (told to me by a current HKA A320 Capt)

Go figure.

Seconded from SQ. All of them are locals. Expat would have converted into a Singaporean before taking any post.

I have recently read a lot on this forum about SIA/Scoot issues - it seems that they have a lot of internal issues, especially with HR. Not to mention media keeps picking them up recently as well - 1. combining SilkAir/SIA finance department 2. No pay leave for cabin crew 3. losing money

I am worried, given that I am interested in taking up cadet pilot with them(Scoot) or through Qatar/L3 MPL. Any suggestions or advice?

Just hang in there. Training department are very shorthanded and 1 individual in any department would be doing many things. They are trying to sort out to shortage on the 787 now. Hang in there and your dates will come.
