Wps Hiring Practice

Recommended Posts

Would anyone know why the WPS is once again looking for a CP - this appears to be the 3rd advert. for people both line and CP pilots in the last 18 months or so?

..... Just a W.A.G.

But it is probably, another police/EMS/fire service, department run by non aviation types. Nepotism is alive and well, I guess. Probably the same as the Calgary police go arounds every few years. They tend to hire inexperienced folkswith connections. Or aircrew that can bend.

In the States. You can often find a nurse running the EMS department. Or a copper as O/C of a aviation division. Or Firemen in charge of a fire/ems machine. Passengers running the department and aircrew waiting around for the word from on high.

You do need people that can fly in that sort of culture. And ''work well with others''. Essentially someone with scrambled eggs on his/her hat gets their nose out'a joint. But this is all a W.A.G.

 

P.S. look at the ORANGE thing out east. No over sight by an independant body, keeping the ''boys'' in line as it were.

NEPOTISM? COME ON! There is just no way that this is the way it works... :rolleyes:

 

The thing that really ruffles my feathers is that they will swear up and down that the process is fair and transparent...

 

I think another good word or 2 that could be added is

 

"DISENGENUOUS" followed by the phrase "Willful Blindnes"

 

How do i know... heard it form somebody that worked there... and so true about non aviation types running the joint...

Pay might be an issue. I saw the CP ad last year and the pay was NOT at all competitive.

 

The pay would have to offset the mind knumbing orbiting in the prairies at night in a snowstorm at -40 blowing 35kts
