The technician who wants anonymity told us about Akasa Air Culture and has also spoken about Jobs and the hiring process, so go through the complete article and share it with your friends and colleagues. So Let’s Begin…
Q.How you Joined Akasa Air?
I m former Jet airways, Employee, with more than 8 yrs of experience. I have worked on Boeing 737, 777, Airbus A330, and all Jet Airways fleets.
After Jet airways shut down in 2019, I lost my job and I tried really hard but then covid-19 hit the world due to this I was jobless for almost 3 years.
Note:- The Aviation Industry is really in the Bad phase and professionals having 5-10 Years of experience are also struggling to get a new job at good pay.
I tried to Apply to various gulf airlines, outside India, and in India as well. I finally got an Opening in a few airlines & MROs in Jan 2022 as I had a good experience.
When I appeared for an interview at Vistara, AAR Indamer, and Akasa Air, I got responses from all 3 organizations.
Q. Tell us About the Vistara Airlines Vs Akasa Air Job Interview process?
Vistara Airlines Technician Selection Procedure
First of all Vistara Airlines has a hefty Interview procedure. It took 4-5 Months for me to go through all the rounds which are as follows,
- Selection email
- Written Test
- Technical Interview
- VP round
- HR Round
Akasa Air Technician Selection & Interview Procedure
I applied at their Official careers Website and got a call from them in April, they have simple procedures,
- Technical round
- HR Round
After that, I got selected by the airlines and I joined them in June 2022.
I rejected Vistara Because I really had a bad experience with them as HR was really rude, she humiliated me and said you were jobless for more than 3 years and we are giving you this job so be grateful and her behavior was intolerable.
On the other side, Akasa Air HR spoke very gently and during the interview also they made me comfortable, it feels like very Friendly with them, they asked everything but in a comfortable manner.
The pay is similar in both organizations but I decided to go with Akasa Air due to its Better Work culture.
Q. Your First Impression of Akasa Air?
My first Impression of Akasa Air is “Quite Amazing as they have really Great Woking Environment and Friendly Culture.”First Impression of Behind the Scene hard working Aircraft Technician
Jet Airways which is a Full-service airline also had a pretty amazing work culture and is also seen in this Low-cost Akasa Air.
During No Maintenance work as our aircraft did not arrive, we were told to work from home and stay at home instead of coming at Hqtrs.
I think this is the first airline that has no Epaulettes as they don’t discriminate between any of its Engineering staff.
Note: Akasa Air Co-founder Aditya Ghosh formerly Indigo president has also stated,
” We have You comes first approach for our passengers and Employees.”Aditya Ghosh statement in an Interview
