Salary scam

I just want to give a heads up to all pilots looking to apply for bamboo Airways. After extensive research I have found out that the salary currently many agencies are posting is false claims. It’s before tax and the 30% covid reduction. My friends tells me that you can expect 2000-5000$ per month.

Ciao

Rocco. This salary stated above would be for a FO or Capt position. And for what fleet ?

This is the captain salary for A320. Please read carefully the fine print whenever the agencies present these fantasy salaries and confront them about this. It’s all a scam. These salaries they are posting are before tax and before the 30% covid reduction.

I understand we all are desperate for a job but do yourself the favor and do some research before going there. At least know what you getting in to. Try to contact people already working there before embarking on going over there.

On top of that I would count around 6 month of no salary during the time of groundschool and when waiting for your license.

Captains on 787 working more then 75hrs can't even see 7˝k usd.

Their latest ad posts 13.3k +++.. It far from what you're going to see.

They don't tell you, only until you get here thEN they will change your contract and tell you the company can cut your pay as and when they like. Right now, 30% off goes back to the company and another 35% goes to the Vietnam government.

Scam Airline, cheating employees

I am currently employed with bamboo, and can verify that whatever is being said above about salaries is true. You will never get the salaries they are advertising, you hardly make 5-6k as a captain, 3-4k as a FO. There is no fixed salary and its based on your actual flight hours. I dont know how these people have the balls to advertise a false salary of 13k. If you apply to them( through an agency or directly) , please ask them if its net salary and also if there is any fixed component. You will know the truth. Bunch of scamsters and liars sitting in HR. Salaries are delayed, they purposely paid pilots extra for three months so they stay back for their high season and now are asking that money back from pilots saying it was an accounting error. 😂. No fixed roster, you usually get 5-7 days roster, which is also changed many times, its hard to plan your personal life. They target you personally if you speak up against the company, probably wouldn't renew your contract too as you will be labelled as troublemaker. Also not to mention, the contract terms change every 2-3 months. Most of the pilots, including locals are unhappy here. Avoid if you can.

Bamboo Scammers

I totally agree, I have been in Bamboo since the beginning and we never got a proper roster. The flight program is changing daily and you are Lucky to have it for one week, generally is for few days. They never respect their own policies. Regarding Salary, it is adapted according to HR policies that are continuously changing. You won't be able to understand what your salary will be, and you can't complain since they will never answer clearly. Compared to pre covid period we are now paid only for flights hours and 50% less. then you can consider that they ERASED THE COMMUTING down to 5-1 only and in the next few months we are gonna have the 8-2 option, unpaid. Before we had 6-2 and a fixed salary up to 70 hours. Now is a Joke
The other main issue is that for most of us they didn't pay taxes while the amounts were detracted monthly from our payslips. We can't have any official tax declaration and consequently, we are unable to claim our tax refund. The company is using "Viber" for official communication adding you to several groups to keep people divided and avoid complaints. If you complain you are blacklisted and the contract is not renewed. The training process is long and disorganised. You will be waiting months. In the main time salaries are always delayed or cut without any official explanation. You can stay in this company only if you are really desperate or without any other option. Better to look for something else. I will be leaving ASAP special thanks to Mr Duc Manh that with his personal touch and outstanding manners.

Look what the competition is offering (Vietravel):
Standard Asian comedy. Give it 12 months and provided China doesn't invade Taiwan salaries will be treble.

Sigma usually calculates the aggregate yearly package, can't see it here. Needless to say, that looks like 9000 USD (before taxes?) for 70 hrs (840 yearly) on a 60 days OFF contract.

The minimum EU standard (mobile workers in aviation directive) is 52 * 2 + 4*5 = 124 OFF per year IIRC. Wizzair don't need to be afraid.

Not sure how you've come to the 9000 figure... You are only getting paid $25 per hour for the first 70 hours of flying...

Spot on! The answer if pure human factors.

I did not bother to look at the posted table at all, just assumed and typed a figure from the PIC leaflet.

But after a closer look, even the C4 only adds up to around 7.5k - 8k. And there is more interesting stuff such as blasting 6 days of annual holiday + zero sickleave.
