Alright thanks. I wasnít sure if things would be changing due to XO taking ownership. I wouldnít think XO would want the terrible name Red Wong has.

Yeah hate to spoil your hopes on this one Xojet did buy them. However they have made it abundantly clear they are keeping the operation separate. That in its self is odd. They want the network and support just not the employees boosted to Xojet standards. Go figure as Xojet a highly respected operation for the most part amongst pilot and the 135 charter world.

One of my coworkers said Xojet hiring again and received an email from them. Might toss your resume there way.

XO Crew Resources (XOCR) has opened an announcement for CL-350s. They also fly Globals but no announcement for that. The compensation and work/HR rules are very different between XOCR and XO Aviation (XOAV). Be sure you know what youíre applying for...

Thumbs up I heard that the Round Table was working

I heard that the Round Table was addressing this pay and benefits disparity between the XO/Vista sides.. Also, I heard that Atlantic Bucks and Rental Cars might be coming back, which is awesome... Are you all getting used to the new uniforms for the XO side? They look pretty nice, although Iím sure that they are not as comfortable. But you are certain to get more tips in that get up! LOL..

Iím not privy as to what the RT may be working on with respect to XO/Vista or Atlantic bucks. Not sure what you mean about rental cars as we have freely had them available whenever needed or desired. While the uniforms are not as comfortable as before, they havenít been all that bad and itís what the boss wants. And yes, I do get more compliments when I wear it. Who knew everyone likes a red tie?

Well, they're currently doing a bait-and-switch on LinkedIn, advertising for PIC positions on airframes they don't have, and offering candidates who interview for those XL positions a spot on a V with the ability to upgrade when they receive the XLs. Considering they were supposed to add Xs back in 2016 which they still don't have 5 years later, I wouldn't be holding my breath for those XLs.

How's that for an interview experience?

All you have to do is look at this board for about 5 minutes to draw your conclusions about the company. Their reputation is well-deserved. People who want to ask 'why are you so negative about this company' have obviously never worked with them.

Either way it seems like they are being pretty particular about who they give offers and interviews to. One friend got an interview but a thanks but no thanks. I haven’t even gotten a email asking me to go bugger off.
