Anyone could shed a light on why they require a European Drivers License "B" for the captains position?

Thanks!

That's standard over here, nothing to do with LDM. I don't know why they write it in there, but it's really nothing unusual in job ads in Austria.

Figures on ppjn.com are accurate. Income taxes in Austria, social security in Spain (for PMI base). Plan on max 70 hours a month...much less in PMI in the winter.

Probably so you can transport your whole crew in a rental car to their next duty. Saves on paying taxi-drivers to do the job...

Can someone tell how long it took from having applied to a FO/CA position until Lauda first got in touch with you? I can't find any information regarding the recruitment process.

That i know, yet nothing about a timeline. I wonder how long it takes for them to get in touch after receiving the application - maybe someone gained some experience worth sharing

I know a friend, rated, that applied. Got a reply on the same day, a confirmed assessment for the week after and one day after the assessment was asked if he was ready to start the occ 5 days later.
My friend said no, and was totally unimpressed with the professionalism of the whole thing, from the beginning.
Some other people I know applied, but never got an assessment date.

Guys really, I rarely post here but wanted to say that this is the worst contract Iíve seen in my 13 years in aviation. I did an assessment there and got a job offer, so finally I got to see the actual contract. Itís less money than advertised, less leave than advertised, they can send you wherever whenever without paying you any compensation. You are called a mobile transport worker in the contract. It says that youíre responsible for being current and so on, itís a piece of crap. When I said that they wanted to explain me the contract, they said everything will be not like this blablabla. In the end you sign that paper giving them the right to do whatever they want with you.

I made some phonecalls with people working there, everybody in Lauda tries to find another job.

Why Iím writing this: guys we have to unite and not accept this. Companies are doing this to us because we let them. We have to stand up and say no. This job can be the most beautiful job in the world but itís getting less every day. Itís time we do something.

Sounds terrifying frankly. My issue: i'm an Indian national with the unrestricted right to work and live in Europe (married to a german), moved to Germany in Apr. i'm an A320 (500h) and Q400 (2000h) pilot with a current A320 TR/IR, Class I Medical etc. Just got ahold of my EASA licence and applied everywhere where i possibly could apply. I honestly have to take what i can get...and so far it doesnt seem well. I frankly would even take laude, beggers cant be choosers.

Good friend of mine works there as a CPT. Experienced guy. Good guy. Wants to get out as soon as he can. Worst company he has ever worked for, he says. And getting worse by the day, according to him.

The Airbus market.

Can anyone give us an update on the A320 market for pilots please.
I am more up to date on the 737 side of things. ( Stagnant or negative at the moment until Max and Corona is sorted.!?)

I would imagine there is a bright future for any A320 rated pilot out there, but does the recruitment reflect this.
The terms and conditions quoted here suggests the opposite, me thinks
