How about the E190?
I was supposed to have my interview yesterday, at 3:30am Central time, however right as I was ready, I got a Skype message from them, at 3:35am, saying they need to cancel because they're not ready. Not a good first impression if you ask me.

I've been trying to pester them about some T&C's, but so far, nothing. Haven't heard good things about the pay though.

I am hesitant to apply without knowing what the T&C’s are. I have not heard positive information but at this point it’s all conjecture. When it comes to contract jobs I always prefer to use a reputable agency as a buffer between myself and company. Unfortunately, in today’s environment Bamboo seems to be one of a handful of companies accepting applications and there is no need for assistance in their recruitment drive. Best of luck to all who apply and hopefully some will post a summary of of the T&C’s soon. Be well !

zero pay during ground training, no min guarantee, 5 on 1 off.

Both fleets will have T&Cs as low as management can get away with during the current crisis. Once things start to improve and better quality candidates are able to look elsewhere they will probably improve.

In the meantime, expect to be taken advantage of.

To all those not familiar with Asian airlines... The vast majority have expat Ts and Cs that swing from one extreme to another to reflect market conditions. And this often happens within a 24 hour period. And what you've been promised and signed up for often changes before start date. Don't go quoting the law, it doesn't work for Johnny Foreigner in a foreign land. In the current climate, you will make more at home as a delivery driver and have a life to boot. If it's currency you care about, well thousands are in the same boat. Airlines will have to relax their 12 month rules for the several years. I'm personally not concerned that it'll be 2 years since my last flight by the time I get to fly. Yanks expecting a good impression.....forget it!

Just out of curiosity what are the better quality candidates?

Regardless still hoping for a straight answer to a straight question without any fairy tales nor brain diarrhea. Thanks!

Better quality candidates are those licensed by first world countries who were flying for major airlines and were laid off because of COVID. Likely to be already rated with significant experience on type.

Lower quality would be licensed by third world countries, flying for questionable operators and unrated or minimal experience on type.

Once the recovery picks up and more desirable jobs start appearing, the better candidates will drift off to the better employers. In the meantime it’s take what you can get and be thankful if you have any flying job at all.

Strange that you seem so desperate that you ignore researching the real actual fleet size and types

I think that 100.000 pilots worldwide are at the moment desperate. In two three years after your last actual flight no airline will look at you.
What I found out is that they operate 3 airplanes at the moment and have 20 on order.

Yes, I have passed the Skype interview

​​​​​​Any details about the interview? What it was about? Was it a technical or personal/career interview?

Bamboo only have 3 aircraft?

Wow, they sure do get around then. And quickly too.

Maybe they have supersonic versions

They will when they realise that those who flew in the last year are not available!

Like Iíve always said before. The first few pilots to join any airline that hires first will be the cream of the crop. That is to say recency wise etc etc. Sadly they will be picked up at the lowest terms n conditions because low cost airlines are well aware that once the skies open up they wonít be able to match legacy carriers salaries. 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.
