Thumbs up Vietnam Airlines Selection

Just got back from leave with my family and my colleague informs me that Vietnam Airlines are looking for Captains and FO’s.
Couldnt find the link anywhere. Could anyone confirm if this is indeed the case. And specifically, if they are interested in 777 drivers.
Haven’t seen the inside of a cockpit in over a year now. So I would be grateful for any inputs. Thanks all.

I see your post, then I look over the internet, can’t find it too. I never saw their 777, only 321, 787, and 350.

As far as I know, they're looking for B787 captains, with previous experience (at least 1000 hrs) as a 787 PIC, valid OPC and last flight on type within 12 months (are there many drivers available who meet all these requirements?). Age is not specified, but it seems for Bamboo pilots must be under 58 yrs old.

VNA does not operate the B777 anymore.

No wonder I couldn’t find the link.
I have some colleagues who are on the 78 in bamboo and in fact I heard from one of them itself about this ad.
What might one expect in the selection process. Is it something like the Middle East or different and more relaxed ?

ONLY 787 so far, and they have a lot of still un recalled A320 crew. 777 is NOT a part of fleet anymore as @hamil clarified.

Guys. An important question please.
Which is a better agency to work with. FCI AERO or CAE PARC.
Especially when working with VNA. I have never worked with either. Please advise. Thanks.

Neither, Probably best to look at the insurance they offer and see which of those you prefer. Most of us deal with the Airline HR department direct now.

I donít think VNA is dealing with pilots directly in this case. Only thru agencies.

No, but once you are here you wonít hear much from the agencies. Nor do they help you at all. Its all gone dark from Parc a long while back.

Look at the insurance each offer. Pick the one that suits you, go with that and dont expect anything else from them.

Iím not really expecting anythingÖ!!
However would be nice to know what to expect in the assessment. Donít even know the process yet.
ie interview only, or interview and written, or interview and sims. And agencies donít seem to know much surprisingly.
Anyone done the drill know any better?
As in what to expect on the day. Thanks in advance.

I too have simply heard of the openings. Not read anything yet. I was told CAE were dealing with them. Not sure.

Now now …
Isn’t that what this thread was all about.
Is there any intel on what the assessment process comprises of? Written? Interview ? What to expect on the day ?

Are they also looking for A350 Captains? Saw a posting for it from one of the agencies, but couldn't find it on any other site.

No. I don’t think so. Only Boeing skippers for now I think.
