Thomas Cook hiring in Manchester

Hi all
My eye caught that Thomas Cook are hiring A320 pilots in MAN.
How are they doing recently? Is it true that the airline might be sold?
I'm an FO with 6000 hours on the airbus, what does time to command look like there?
What about roster patterns? Most of my career was with another LCC. How does it compare?
Are there a lot of nightstops? Is basing stable or can you be sent all over?

Feel like it's time to go somewhere where command will come quickly, but if command times at
TCX are not too long, I quite fancy the 2 sectors, easy winter and maybe chance to fly 330 as well.
Any thoughts appreciated.

Hi guys

Has anyone attended an assessment with TCX recently? If yes, I'd really appreciate some feedback as I have an interview next week. Please PM

They're still operating the unpopular 7/5 contracts but I guess, as you're A320/321 TR'd with 6K hours you'll go straight on to full year contract.

Seems illogical that they recruit TR'd FO's from outside the organisation when they have dozens of second year 7/5's TR'd FO's languishing at home from November to April
