Well honestly, all may be right or wrong what is written here, never done an expat career nor ever been flying for any far-eastern airline. But for sure, sky isn't that blue (or pink) in western airlines either. There is training- (or better check-) personell around, and i mean now in major airlines, which would perfectly fit tino the culture you are describing here. Maybe just the density of such guys is lower.

my 5cnts.

Western Airlines accept pilots who have the right to work in their respective countries. However the difference is that these foreign nationals who wish to work in the west have to gain citizenship or become a resident which you have clearly stated. However it is different in Asia, Westerners can come and work without having to gain citizenship or become a resident, so that makes it easier for westerners to come over to work in Asia.

A disadvantage for Asians i believe

You have your information wrong.

Anyone working in any asian country must comply with that countries immigration laws and right to work laws. Each country has different requirements, but someone working as an expat still must obey local laws. One of the biggest hurdles to working in asia is obtaining a right to work status.

Hi! There are few news. This is as the day of today, because things change a lot. First of all, they wonít admit it but the strike from cabin crew earlier this year had quite some impact. No more year bonus! Money wise, they still pay on time tho. But no more protection on currency exchange. We are paid in NTD (Taiwan dollar) and at the moment, the USD is not good, so we are loosing money. Same for Euro. It used to be better and they used to have a protection for devaluation of the currency. But not anymore.
They are still looking for pilots because they simply can not keep them. Upgrade is kinda of a lure... it is true that they do upgrade. But, not fast at all... as any company, it depends on man power and company needs. They have a lots of cadets and of course, they will have priority. I have no idea why, but Malaysians and Japanese also have priority in upgrade. Basically within 2 years, upgrade as SFO then 3 to 4 years max, as captain. For other expats, it takes 4 to 5 years to upgrade as SFO then 5 to 6 years as Captain. Everything works with seniority and unfortunately, they can say any excuses in order not to upgrade you or to change you to an other fleet. Example, at the moment, lots of cadets and Malaysians and Japanese, and as I said, I have no idea why, they have better contract and more priority (even if they will not admit it and will keep repeat you that they treat all employee the same), that means that, as a foreigner from other country, you will upgrade after them even if you join before them. Easy to realize that, as they publish the list of upgrade, with id number and names. Id numbers are just numbers or starts with a letter (A..., B..., C... etc...) And you will see : for example you hold an id number starting like F123... and later, you will see that a guy, joining after you with id number G984.. is upgrading! As for that, it is easy to see that he joins after, but upgrade earlier. And of course, as a result all consequences, such as no improvement of your salary compare to others, lower self-esteem, etc...
Regarding work environment, it is a bit better than before but still very asian, juniors owe big respect to seniors and can not talk and express themself much. Culture of fear, punishment and bully is still very present but they try to improve... things change very slow in here.
Well, thatís it I guess. I hope it helps.

Ive not worked as an Eva air FO but ive lived in taiwan as an expat and can tell you that its a great plade to live. In fact id say that its underrated.

Cost of living is cheap, its super safe in all respects and it has one of the best health care systems in the world. Its also very modern. You can also pick up mandarin.

As an American youd also appreciate how Taiwanese love Americans right now. Many people speak English too.

Some of the disadvantages are that its humid (more than texas humid). But the winters are mild and some places are very bearable like Taichung.

If you have questions about living in Taiwan feel free to pm me. Ive lived in Taiwan for 3 years and am married into the culture. Ive also lived in Asia for ten years.

Probably because most Malaysians who join are already rated on either the 737 or Airbus 330 and have airline experience with hours.
Upgrade isnít just about your seniority in the company. Not to mention the sim check and knowledge.

just saying

just operated through TPE, they are parking their aircraft all over the airport. Would imagine hiring would be on the back burner

Is there anyone currently in Eva who would be interested in having a more private discussion about life there?
Iím currently a 73 FO in Australia and donít see much of a future here once this corona issue resolves itself.
Havenít held a jet command (roughly 6500hrs tot) so EVA seems like a good option for a potential upgrade at some point. Realistically... a command will likely be 10-15 years away in Aus now, provided the airline even survives

Samca,

So far you have asked on different threads about the hiring situation at Air Arabia, Pegasus, Wizz Europe and Abu Dhabi, Bamboo Air and now Eva.

It appears nobody is hiring so maybe give it a rest for a while? As soon as someone starts hiring PPRuNe will be all over it in seconds.

Well only a fool would think anyone other than a few cargo airlines are hiring right now. I don't know any passenger carrying airlines that right now aren't struggling to survive.

But if your fine with looking like a fool go ahead.

Tell us more, who are they? Since you trust the forum and its members to offer guidance, surely for a gentleman of your calibre it would only be a little gesture of giving back. Many could use your help!
