I believe Ben is the only IVM at the moment, but he is away for the week.

I think it is safe to assume that most people towards the bottom of the management page were hired as IVM first.

If the airline(s) one is interested in is (are) currently filled, then the person takes on projects for other VAs until a vacancy they're interested in exists. If currently vacant, then I set them up with those VA's responsibilities, with the goal of eventually becoming that VA's manager.

Of course, vacancies are first announced within management before being publicly announced, so if the VA one is most interested in is filled, then it pays to already be on the management team to get a first crack at the position. And, of course, one has to have been an Interim for at least a month before applying for a specific VA, reinforcing the advantage of proactively being on the team.

Some people have criticized this as being unfair, but I don't see it that way. It creates incentives for someone to join management now rather than later.

I think he was talking about how management gets first dibs on any open VA, before its announced to the public.

I looked through the Management hiring list and I could be well suited for the Downloads Mgr as I am akways checking flt sim sites for new stuff and testing it before recommending it to Aaron.

The Downloads Manager position is more to find addons for FS that will be useful for our pilots; not so much testing planes. Addons such as chart viewers, co-pilot addons and new ATC.

If you feel you will do well, feel free to contact Aaron.

As Alex said, it's more miscellaneous stuff, since aircraft, panels and sounds are covered elsewhere. If you're interested, though, go for it. We've been a bit shorthanded in management for a while, so it's always nice to have more.

Once you've had the first interview for becoming a IVM, do you then have to have another to become a VA manager?

Yes, the first is just a general interview, the second is airline specific.
