Aegean DEC

The job market is looking pretty good at the moment with plenty of opportunities out there. Whilst weighing up my options, I notice that info is sparse on here regarding Aegean.

Does anyone have any information regarding rostering, common basings, etc for Airbus DECs? It looks like they have an interesting route network.

Why are they needing to hire DECs if itís such a good gig?

(I have the details on the financial package already)

Thanks

I think you answered your own question there. The pay is too low to keep people and they are losing more people than they have capacity to train.

I am interested on the contracts as well, if you don't mind sharing.

If it's just the financial package that lets them down, it seems such a shame that they won't increase it. The pay (especially considering that pension contributions are going to have to come out of your net pay) does leave a lot to desire.

On the other hand, a warmer climate sounds good... And before you go there - I'm not going to the sandpit!

Cheers

Yes that doesn't make much sense to me, either. I wondered if maybe their office was in Switzerland?
