Pilot pay will not go back to pre-covid level for a very long time, Airlines will be in cautious mode, expansion will come much slower.

And, even pre-covid, low cost carriers were not paying pilots as low as you believe...

Legacy Airlines and Long haul? ... Difficult time ahead....

Does anyone have any intel on how they conduct their initial OPC / Screening sim.
What is done briefly and anything out of the ordinary to be expected?

So they will offer sub par salaries initially as bait, take the needy ( and good )ones that come and join, and then when the tap dries ( very soon ) the salaries shall be boosted to match legacy carriers.
Of course, the tap would dry pretty soon considering Internatuonal aviation is picking up unexpectedly quicker than predicted by the doomsday gurus.

Totally agree ! 👌👌👌
In the mean time does anyone have any information on how they conduct their initial OPC / Screening sim.
What is done briefly and anything out of the ordinary to be expected? Any additional call outs required by their instructors. Because I hear that they have many additional call outs in addition to the normal Boeing standard call outs.
Any info welcome.

My 2 pennies worth.

Bamboo has no recruitment integrity. They have one rule for one person and one for another. The hours requirement is complete dog poo.

Zero integrity when it comes to abiding to the contract.

Use this airline like a dirty mop. Use and abuse them and when the time is right, move to another airline.

Do they conduct their sim checks fairly?

"Fairly". Well in my experience in this part of the world, the answer is a resounding NO. But that means they have expats they like and expats that they don't. If you're one of the guys that happen to fall into their like category, then the sim checks will be extra fair. If you fall into the dislike category then you won't survive long however good your sim's are.

no expat NTR needed. Vietnamese captains can apply with experience on Boeing widebodies.

It is my understanding that the Vietnamese CAA does not see the 787 and 777 as a common type. This might clear up any confusion some might have when they think they're a common type.

I got a call to write theory exam almost 18-20 days back. Very next day they said "you have passed and will update you on interview soon". Thereafter, no response. Does any one have a clue whether they are even hiring or not?

Oh...didn't know that. Just saw on their LinkedIn, lot of people applied, reapplied, complained but no response. Really don't know how they work. There hiring ad is everywhere, but nobody is getting a call. If it's Bamboo or entire Vietnam culture is like this, god knows.

Had applied for A320 Captain. Have stopped following up with them now. Looks bogus or probably they have got people already within Vietnam.

Anyone seriously considering applying to a company which:

1. Still owes outstanding salaries to both it's current and former pilots

2. Not paying nearly enough to get by to it's current pilots and in some cases even nothing to those who got stuck outside Vietnam due to covid restrictions

3. Expecting you to finance your own flight ticket, visa application, covid testing, quarantine hotel, other fees and expenses, etc.

Just asking for a "friend"...
