Yes it does!

Not defending them mind you, but if there is something we have learned in this paid hobby of ours is that brand names are not exempt from the occasional mechanical issues.

A fuel line coming loose is not “mechanical issues” that’s maintenance issues.
Then evacuating with BOTH engines still running and blowing the slide on the side of the fire....are not “mechanical” issues either.

Since they are offering more $$, for the same B$ everywhere else, why not take advantage of it.
Feast, while food Is plentiful.
A lot of the pilots working at these places can not get hired at a reputable place due to their backgrounds. I was once one of those pilots and know other great pilots from these types of airlines. ALL the good ones I know have since moved on. Im sure there are guys and gals that could get hired at majors from this sector, but not many.

Yes just like a smart cat.

But that doesn't mean that all pilots in companies like that are the same.
Some were not given a chance and some are too old to be called on nicest jobs.

Their are offering a decent pay and i will take it. If they want me there and i will do my best as a good professional I am and have always been.

So you used one of these jobs as a transition but still paint everyone with a very wide brush?
