I'm sincere about wanting to know what its like out there...


There is no way to answer your question with any accuracy. Much like corporate jobs in the States, no two foreign airlines are the same. Some are good and some are bad.

GreenDOG is working for an airline that 5 of my friends went to work for in 1996/7. Within two years all of them were either fired or quit. I've since warned people about EVA on many forums. It's not one of the better places to work. That said, it is a decent stepping stone for better things. There are quite a few guys at my current airline who finished their four year contract at EVA and have now moved on. If you treat it for what it is, a stepping stone, and then move on it makes working there a bit more palatable.
