All BAD as usual BAV Policy

Several pilots have the work permit and resident card expiring by the end of June.
Bamboo HR is playing badly as usual postponing paperwork at last minute.
They keep fighting with Agents since they don't want to pay them any commission to quit contracts in advance.
According to the contract, they can not hire directly any pilot contracted by agencies for one year or Bamboo has to pay The Agent.
Bamboo proposed them to CHARGE COSTS TO THE PILOT and in the same time plans to force employees to sign a direct contract before te natural agency contract end to show Agencies that is the Pilot that want to quit not Bamboo as to avoid any commission.
They don't care at all about employees, families, lives...just about their own profit.
They keep paying salaries time to time according to monthly policies for Expats with huge delays and without any chance to check the correct amount.
They continue to change policies backwards without any respect for contractual terms and work condition.
They don't care about flight safety, all employees are slaves working for free.
Those are the bigger liars worldwide, 5 STAR LIARS

Is not a question of money my friend, is a question of behaviour.
We are flying normally, flights full, every day.
They don't pay us
Visas expiring, residence expiring, no roster, no commuting, no life insurance, no medical insurance, policies changing every month retroactively.
They don't have the MINIMUM respect for us and our families.

If you like to be screwed deeply I suggest you to join those A.....s! and be prepared to pay....

What's the latest on Bamboo Airways? Are things improving? I've been contacted for a Skype Interview for the Embraer fleet, but the reviews here are less than reassuring. Thanks

You know the reality. There are too many Pilots in the World. Employers will always have the upper hand. When you choose to become an expat, you choose to give up the rights and protection that you'd expect at home. Many find that the only tool they have is to abuse their employer on PPRuNe. Look at Emirates, Qatar, Cathay etc. Yet it's the same people year after year in the same company with the same stories.

If you want to go expat then do it. Don't come back here complaining in 6 months time.

You have the basic info from this thread that you need. Late salaries, No commuting, you pay for your upgrade. If that's alright with you then go for it.

I think polax52 has summed it up succinctly, wise words indeed.

I understand that the company takes advantage over expats... however, in the current context, it's very difficult to know what is the best...To be unemployed or to keep a foot in the industry at the price of many concessions ? It is really 50-50...

What I got offered for Ejet fleet:

No pay until IOE begins (undefined period for ground training and license conversion).

Terms & Conditions are subject to change due to COVID pandemic (so pay can be drastically reduced once I'm on the property).

That was enough for me to reject their job offer.

I wanted to go but I'm not making this up, look:

(1) General regulation:
- From boarding date to 1st line training date: Pilot isn't
entitled to get salary and all types of allowances but pilot
is entitled to get per diem (if any), hotel corresponds to
employee grade (if any)
- From 1st line training date: pilot is entitled to get benefit
package pursuant to this income announcement

"Annotation: During Covid-19 pandemic, Pilots will be entitled to a salary policy from time to time according to the airline's regulations and based on the actual operation situation. The time for applying 100% post-pandemic policy is when WHO declares the end of pandemic or BAV officially announces application of the post-pandemic policy, whichever comes first."

After reading these 2 sections in the contract, I am staying in my current company where I get paid on time all the time.

Is there any difference in applying direct or through an agency for terms and conditions
Also they are not an easy company to deal with or communicate with

Has anyone else heard anything? I'd be interested to connect with someone else considering the offer. My PPRuNe account is new and my inbox is apparently full already, so please reply in this thread, and I'll send you a PM with contact details.
