EJM has been advertising the need for a pilot in Atlanta GA.
I know some of the pilots that have worked for this owner. The reason EJM points out that you will work directly for the owner is because the owner is unable to afford to pay the price for a well staffed flight department. He will only hire 2 pilots for a 24-7 operation. Benies suck and no vacation, no scheduled days off. Mechanics are farmed out and paid slowly and paid poorly. The pilot pay is below industry standards. The owner will not offer a contract and is telling the pilots that the plane is "not for sale".
The plane is for sale.
To confirm check: www.avprojets.com
listed as "Embraer SN 14500948
I hear that the owner can not afford the plane and still owes people money. His car business is going bust.
Also if you work directly for an owner and operate on EJM's certificate, EJM will not stand behind the crews and are always in constant battle with crews over Maintenance issues and constantly tries to get between the crews and the owner to convince the owner to dump the crews and hand full control over to EJM. Some owners see through this and stand behind the crews and some do not such as this case.
Working for an owner on EJM's certificate is an up hill battle all the way.
BEWARE! Do your home work before jumping into bed with this owner or EJM.

I met the Capt that got this job down in HOU, nice guy. He was getting his type in the Legacy. Seemed to know what he was getting into. I think he used to be Ron White's (sp)(the comedian) Capt on his Westwind. That's a whole other story though! Sounds like this owner might be a little better, maybe...
