I chatted with one of their recruiters last year at a job fair. This job sounds terrible, hey were explaining you get around 11 days off a month and cannot commute to the US. She was dumbfounded when I told her I could hold 16-18 days off at a regional, commute and make almost the same money. She explained all the locals fly the 190 because the schedules are actually pretty decent. The 737 is pretty brutal. This is a SJSer dream.

The 737 type is from Panama, you will have to invest money to convert t to FAA. Southwest won't look at you.

You do have to pay $2500 for the atp over in panama and on second year pay at a regional it is comparable. and no commute and langauge can be a problem too. rent is pretty high $1000-1500 as told by an FO who is a friend. Again its good experience but QOL is somewhat better in States.

The bit about Southwest is true.
Also be prepared to be treated like crap from the locals and their version of the FAA.
I hear an all around bad place.
