Can not hire fast enough

Can not hire fast enough

Postby Jflem1983 » Nov 22nd, 2017, 5:52 am

Lol. Maybe its the wages ? Minimum wage to work on airplanes. No wonder they have to bring people from afar. Castanet should have mentioned wages in the article. I wonder why they never did ?

They are. But they're a contract business. Can't blame them for hiring and firing, can't keep warm bodies on the payroll with no income to match. Unless you want to go broke.

Do you have stats to back your claim up?

And what exactly are you basing your assumption on? Employers pay what the industry demands. KF is well within the industry standard.

Unskilled labour, tearing out old seats and suchlike. They're not hiring professors or rocket scientists.

Sorry - but you're completely out to lunch. If you expect to walk in the door unskilled and untrained, then yes - and pretty much what you should expect no matter who, where or what area of employment you look at. There is however this thing called education, and if you're willing to put the effort in to educate yourself there are very respectable wages to be made working for KF. I happen to know several "local" employees that have made the effort to obtain training through a number of courses offered locally through KF and have very good paying jobs accordingly.

Like anything in life - you get out of it what you put in. If you expect to walk in the door of any employer and have them kiss your *bleep*, then you're in for a disappointing work career. Make yourself have worth. Be of value and become an asset to your employer - not a dead weight liability.

Layoffs are a result of the economy in general. and happen across all walks of life based on the cause and effect of a simple concept based on supply and demand. The economy is doing well right now, and with a little effort, good jobs are available. Just don't expect to sit there and have it handed to you on a silver platter - get up and earn it.

U make it sound like ive worked there or wanted too . I only posted this cuz they claim to be crying for hands . Yet they pay nothing . There is no where to live here . Not at those wages. How can they bring people in ? . If u want to work for free . U go ahead. Thats your rite. Im not currently looking for a job as i work out of town.

If they are having trouble hiring and complaining then they need to look at their work model. Perhaps paying more, better benefits, education incentives, etc?

As an engineer I looked in Kelowna and was told over and over again about the "sunshine tax". How the hell are people going to afford million dollar homes in 20 years if the sunshine tax makes sure you earn less than those in other major area's...
