Just throwing this out here...but one day (a few years down the road...) I'd really like to be SEA based...probably to hang my hat. In the long run, base (particularly if it's PNW) is probably equally, if not more, important to me as equipment and upgrade times, especially since I'm young. Obviously AK probably gives me the best chance for this.

Any other airlines that have SEA bases? Also, anyone from AK willing to PM me to answer a couple of questions?

Cheers

I can't figure out anyway to add another résumé either.

Actually, I do not know either how the program works. I guess the takeaway is the powers that be were actively looking at candidates for interviews last week.

New hire class of 6 begins Monday (Nov 18)...still a few in the pool to place.

Here's an interesting tidbit from our MEC

RETIREMENTS
<<At last count, an additional 25 pilots have submitted paperwork to retire by the end of November, with only a third of those being at or close to the mandatory retirement age. This brings the total for the year to 59. The Company previously estimated only 36 pilots were going to retire based on their survey earlier in the year.>>

Any suggestions on the resume format for the AS app? If it is anything like the Horizon window, they have you put in a text version in a drop box on their career page. I have converted my current resume to simple text with no formatting but honestly it doesn't look pretty. Any help would be appreciated.

Soon to be transitioning military pilot.

Yes, You will just take all the text from your "pretty" resume and paste it into the online application process. Don't worry that it doesn't look "pretty," AS is aware of what they want and need. Good Luck

How many years before you can actually get SEA at Delta? Over 10?

Everyone always asks these questions and the answer is always the same. Between 1 and 10 years haha. Shouldn't be that long but it's definitely senior
