Default Flexjet/CS jobs

I interviewed at NJ in Dec but have not been hired or told no. It's been over a month. As an ex-121 guy who did not make the cut for age 65 (missed by 9 days) and having been through 3 airlines and 2 bankruptcy's, my retirement is toast. I need a job. Can anyone give me the info on Flexjets or CS.

FJ does not have a pilot employment area on their website. What bases do they use? Pay? Working conditions? How do you apply? What is the process and time line?

CS lists ATL as a base. (I live in Peachtree City just south of Atlanta.) Same questions as for FJ.

Thanks in advance for any help.

The pay is a little more now and I don't think they are hiring into the LA bases.

There is a pilot employment area on the flexjet site, it will take you to the bombardier site. good luck

Yes, until I turned 60 and was forced to "retire". Missed the age 65 cutoff by 9 days. That sucks!

Anyone have info on CS or suggestions for others I should look at?

Look at Flight Works and Plane Sense, maybe they offer Atlanta as a base.

Sailaway, I was an RD who left 3 years early 9/05. There are quite a few of us at Flexjet. ATL is not a base yet but don't count it out either. Base meetings start next week so we will see.

Flexman,
Do you live in ATL and commute? If so, how is that working out? I'm in PTC and moving is not an option for me (kids in school, relatives, etc). Also, is the Karen Parr email address above the correct place to send my resume? I can't find anything on the Bombardier site or the FJ section on this forum.
Thanks

Sailaway,

I'm an original MIA guy but did commute to DFW, CVG and ATL. The address in JP's post is correct. She is a very nice lady. We've hired 11 new pilots in Jan. and I believe FJ is interviewing every Monday for the foreseeable future. You can get to the FJ website at http://www.flexjet.com/. The company is definitely growing. There are alot more smiles on flight crew faces now that the new compensation package and scheduling options are set to take place. Unfortunately, ATL is not an FJ base. Even if you have a place to stay in one of the base cities to cut expenses, commuting is not fun (18 years experience). If you'd like to know more you can reach me at kvsdms@aol.com.

Good Luck in your search.
