    Pros

    Didn't get to find out.

    Cons

    I was extended an offer of employment for a contract avionics position. I jumped through all the hoops I.e. u.a. 2 physicals and a mountain of paperwork. I had a start date gave my notice at current job, rented a uhaul and payed non refundable deposit on place to live. A week before my start date bombardier decided they did not need the contract positions and canceled the job. Left me holding the bag, newborn baby and unemployed. Be wary, it could happen to you.

    Advice to Management

    Advertising a job as urgent and then pulling the rug out from under people last minute is borderline criminal and definitely shady AF. Good luck finding talent.
