I think it is important to remember that we are a very small west coast airline. We simply dont have a lot of hiring demand. A big year for us is hiring 120 or so pilots. Our current work rules/ pay scale and pay structure are such that if you want to make money you have to be at work. Keeps us very lean. Some productivity changes that allow reserves to fly on days off and everyone to work
on there vacation(all for straight time) further reduces our hiring demand. And what hiring demand we do have is often filled from the family and friends plan.....dont hold your breath

When I inquire to the BCP's about hiring and the very qualified candidate I am sponsoring...They say be patient . Interviews every month and classes every month. IMO they have many highly qualified and motivated and sponsored candidates. (recommended by current pilots). The last number I heard was 160 is the target for the year. That's a lot for us but not big numbers compared to the bigger airlines. While we are lagging in compensation compared to the new contracts at the other Airlines it is still a good place to work. I hope our upcoming contract will be very competitive. Everyone I have flown with seems to be very happy but expecting for a good pay bump when the next contract comes. Times are good here. I hope it lasts.

I highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend Lori Clark. She helped me get hired and walk in the door with the utmost confidence I would do as well as I had in me. She is fantastic. Best of luck to all!!

It appears you can fill out a new application but you can no longer update an existing one on SmartRecruiters. Is this what most are finding?

I know what you are saying, but I guess we have had a couple of big years then. In two years here, I have about 300 pilots hired after me, and next year looks to be 150+.

I do agree with you on some work rules stuff we can improve, btw.

About how many total pilots are on the the current Alaska list, not counting VX guys? I think VX has about 730 on that side.
