Hi all i'm new here so any help would be great.

I'm an Australian who's going to be immigrating to the US within the next few months. I've had my eye on netjets as the place i would love to work. My question is do netjets look at you differently is you are from overseas?? I have the right to work in europe, usa and australia would this be a handy thing to have if you eventually wanted to work for nji??

many thanks folks.

V

It is illegal to discriminate upon nationality.

If you ask him, he'll tell you he's from Mobile, AL in a thick English accent! :laugh:

Wait until you're asked if you speak English and celebrate Xmas in Australia. That one cracked me up.

Send ozpilot a PM. He's been at NJ for about 10 years now and seems to love it.

I'm not sure the ability to live on 3 different continents would make any difference to NJ. They'll only care that you have your Green Card/US citizenship.

Yes Thats True!

"It is illegal to discriminate upon nationality".


That doesn't mean the pilots can't give you a ration of sh!t when you get here!!!!!

Australia you say?

I've always wanted to visit your "Australian Alps"!

Seriously, you will be welcomed with open arms!

Just "tie your Kangaroo down mate" and lets get going!!!!!!!!!!

We have alot of Expats here. In fact, It's kinda funny how you used the term?

Take care, good luck!

Hey Mate

Like Kenny says I've been at Netjets for 8 years and your citizenship wont be a factor. I travel on an Australian passport with a green card. I'll be applying for dual citizenship in a couple of months.

Netjets pays for the cost of renewing crew member passports. In my case they paid for my Australian passport renewal last year - including the cost of photos and DHL delivery. It cost the company a little over $400!

Netjets has been very good to me. The company rocks!

V,

If you come to America be aware of some of the language differences :)

A "Drug Store" does not sell crack! Its a chemist.

In Australia, "barbie" is what you put beef, shrimp and chicken on to grill it outside. In America, it's an anatomically incorrect female doll that comes in a pink box.

In Australia, "pissed" means drunk. In America, it means very angry.

If an American "lucks out" it doesn't mean he ran out of luck - just the opposite - go figure.

If your happy in the US people may refer to you as a "happy camper".

If you need an eraser, don't ask for a rubber! A rubber is what I used to carry around in my wallet for most of my teenage years in the vain hope that I would get lucky with a member of the opposite sex ...

In Australia you drink hot tea and iced coffee; here they drink hot coffee and iced (sweetened) tea ... ewww....

And whatever you do, don't refer to a cigarette as a fag!

Dude, if you tell me you are going out to "burn a fag" or "smoke a fag", you are going to be single pilot because I'm going to have tears running down my face and piss in my pants! :laugh: :D :nuts: :beer: :laugh:

Here ya go - ex-pat definition

I like the one about exile, us Brits sent a lot of bad boys & girls out to Australia, Botany Bay in the 1780s - I think the colonies in Virginia were getting full!! :D

And yes, I can make the joke, one of my indirect relatives was sent at "His Majesty's Pleasure" to Virginia - he liked it so much that once he had completed his sentence, he came back to UK, grabbed his wife & kids & took them back there! :)

Another relative in the late 1700s was the innocent party, he had a wooden shovel & a metal axe head stolen from him. The 2 guilty parties? One sent to the colonies, one executed! :eek:

A point of history here - we can thank the Americans for Australia being a penal colony. Prior to the war of independence England sent their criminals to the US. After the war they had to send them elsewhere - guess where?

Not that Australians have any animosity towards the English. My best bud at Netjets is English. I love to remind him about the difference between an Englishman and a Catfish (one has whiskers and smells and the other one is a fish! :))
