Their are a lot of pilots that don't do their research and aren't aware of their value so some companies can and do take advantage of them and with how slow pilots will build their time they're not going to open too many doors too soon. I was upset at first that someone added in Surdex when the other companies I posted are all head and shoulders above them in pay and QoL, but with your info hopefully some prospective pilots won't get blindsided and will at least realize what other, better opportunities there are. Hopefully their management realizes that retaining good pilots will make them more money than having to hire less qualified pilots that have limited loyalty and can't wait to bolt. Thank you for sharing this as I think us pilots have to look out for others to make the industry better for us all.FYI:
On the job listing it indicates duty time as "two consecutive weeks on and one off" the reality is they expect you to leave on the first available flight Wednesday morning to the project (when project is outside of STL and commercial travel is required) and do the afternoon lift. Departure day for your time off is Wednesday after you had a full lift putting you at home late evening. In other words its 15 days on 6 days off. And if you are on the C206 doing LIDAR they are putting two crews per airplane 1st 5AM-5PM and 2nd 5PM-5AM. Under the management of MM he believes that Pilots are expendable and replaceable, I'm sure he is in for a rude awakening. If you have questions please ask.
