Default NetJets Hiring Process

Be advised. As of a company communication today, a simulator evaluation has been returned to the NetJets hiring process.

That is all.

Good luck.

I think they had to

I heard a few guys pencil whipped their resumes, couldn't make it through training

one guy had no idea what an LPV approach is or how it works. Supposedly the instructor was giving him very basic instrument training in the sim

I think youíre right. Between people not showing up for class, leaving for an airline shortly after arriving, or failing the training, the ratio of actual line qualified pilots versus original job offers hasnít been very good.

Problem is, they are placing another hurdle in the way of filling classes when it is already becoming harder to find qualified applicants. The recently ratified IBB was designed to help take the pressure off by extracting more productivity out of the existing group. 18 months from now, I think weíll be well under 2400 pilots on property.

How they meet the need beyond that should be interesting to watch.

Do you have any information on what the sim evaluation entails?

This a good thing, tightening the hiring standards. If attracting and hiring applicants of sufficient quality becomes a problem for the company, then we could see them coming to the pilot group with real, tangible contract enhancements to do so.

They already canít fill classes, this is an odd move. I get why they would want to do it, but if they are adding a sim eval back in the interview process, they are interviewing low time pilots...

Wait, I thought not one penny was left on the table in 2015?

I'm sure it's better to let a spot go unfilled rather than find out a pilot is weak after paying FSI for a (blown) initial course.

This is certainly true. Itís a balancing act for management and, quite frankly, I donít think theyíre up to the task.

Not when itís a matter of maybe getting somebody though versus going way understaffed. NJA will have to start doing extra sims in training and youíll start seeing 50-75 hour IOEs like the regionals.
