Outside Mumbai’s Jet Airways office, some employees stood with bleary eyes, having just completed their night shift, while others turned up in uniform, unsure if they had to report for the day shift. After a discussion Thursday afternoon, most agreed on two things — to continue working in the hope that flight operations would resume and to abstain from voting for any political party in the Lok Sabha election.

“Employees have been urging the Prime Minister’s Office to intervene and rescue the airlines. We are getting no response.

Tina and her husband Vishal, who works with Jet’s revenue department, have not received their March salaries. “I am taking financial help from my father, but for how long?” she asks.

Ground operations staffer Amina Shaikh has decided to cancel a trip to Goa to cast her vote. “Several of my colleagues have decided they will not vote. We are spreading the word.

First off, why is this even a question you should answer during an interview? Why are they asking this? Mike is a job interview and career expert and the head writer at TheInterviewGuys.com. His advice and insights have been shared and featured by publications such as Forbes, Entrepreneur

Many job seekers use general interview answers–which is indeed a bad strategy. Because I want this job so badly. Your concerns and desires don ’ t interest the interviewers… I have no idea. If you have no idea why it makes sense to hire you, how can we figure it out?

“At least one lakh people depend on Jet Airways for running their households. We request the PMO to bring about a solution.” Stating that other private airlines have hiked their fares, Pawaskar said it is the government’s responsibility even though Jet is a private company. “Our employees will keep working. They want Jet Airways to start operating again,” he said.

Calling Naresh Goyal’s resignation as chairman an act of “corporate war”, Pawaskar demanded an inquiry. “Why have SBI-led lenders not provided Rs 1,500 crore funding as promised after Goyal stepped down? We have employees who have worked here for 40 years. Who will provide them with a job?” he asked.

Referring to Kingfisher Airline’s Vijay Mallya, Pawaskar said the Indian government keeps naming those who ran away with money, “But why is the bank not aiding those who stayed in India and did not run anywhere?”
