Clue is in the title - 'Grand Total'.

Thanks kick the tires. The package is so derisory I had to ask the question. A shame these new base t's and c's don't have the same conditions as other European contracts. The race to the bottom continues...

It's an appallingly bad contract, approx 40% less than the previous Spanish contract.

One of the most disturbing conditions is the 60% sick pay from day 1.

The race to the bottom continues...

These crews will no doubt trip through other bases as the cheapest option.

The local management will retain their juicy Euro/UK contracts.

The greed at the top will continue whilst those at the coal face sweat it out...

But there will be takers.

Hi there,
I'm on better Ts&Cs where I am but was going to apply for the NTR 'Co-pilot' (First Officer?!) position OPO/LIS just for the experience, however easyjetcareers only lists a requirement for type-rated Co-pilots. Any ideas, or have they found enough desperados to fulfil the no doubt limited number of NTR slots already?

Thanks for your response mate, but this is supposedly a current requirement... Look at the back of last week's Flight International. If you meant that this round of NTR recruitment was another open/shut within hours because of a similar amount of interest as the 2013 recruitment then I guess that answers my question!

Cheers

Why apply "just for the experience"? That doesn't sound a good place to start from, especially if you already have a better gig?

And then, you'd be up against x,000's of "desperados" (sic), who may actually be hungry for the job.

Sounds like a waste of time.

Lis is a great city and you can really enjoy it. Fantastic food, weather and people. The problem is that the ezy contract is quite poor, taxes are very high so your take home is really low(as a captain you make a lot less that an f/o in italy, france or germany). There is a constant flow of pilots leaving and joining because of this, morale is quite low too.

If you join you will be freeze in Lis for five years so forget to get a transfer, even after those five years the transfer isn't guaranteed because "there aren't replacements for your position available".

This is the new way of employing people in easyjet, so the race to the bottom continues, this isn't the great company to work for as it used to be and, looking at this management that is just worried about their bonuses, it will not improve.

Superconstellation is right, the food is gorgeous in Portugal, people are really nice and respectfull, LIS is a nice city, and...easyjet has become a rubbish airline, thanks to CTC Aviation, the cancer of aviation.

Thanks all.

It's hard to find an airline these days where (office) management care about anything other than their own pockets! (I would say none)

Pilots vs management like dogs vs cats (I believe we're the cats) 🐱

Take it easy

Hi Narrow Runway,

To answer your question, I always think any interview experience in aviation is useful - it forces you to brush up on the kinds of things, and hones the skills, that may one day lead to that ultimate job. I think that being current in interview experience is important for us pilots - I could be made redundant tomorrow or see the job of my dreams next week and I'd like to be as ready as I can be for that. As you say, vacancies for experienced pilots are often scarce and are applied for in the thousands. Knowing that my CV still makes it to the short list for initial assessment or that I can still impress an interview panel is important to me. If I'm fortunate enough to be offered a position but with Ts & Cs I don't agree with, then that position will go to someone else who will except them.

That said, enough's been said here in the last few posts to put me off EZY (in Portugal) anyway - I'll just look forward to the nice food and friendly people on a relaxing break in LIS or OPO instead - and leave my potential interview slot to someone who desperately needs it.

Self funded TR, 86,000 salary and 90% for first six months....

Full page Orange advert in Flight too - rated and non-rated Captains and FOs.

Sounds the Ryanisation is in full force with differing contracts!

Why have they put the salary in Euros when it's a UK base? And how/why is this figure lower than the ppjn salary- I thought it had been fixed with Balpa?

737 Jockey,

Where is the 86,000 salary quoted? I couldn't see that in the FI advert and on the easyJet careers site, it talks of OTE 114,000.

I'm a bit confused. Is this a new, lower pay scale for DEC?

Admittedly, I am type rated and a current captain. So, not sure if that changes things?
