Just a heads up.
When filling out the application make sure you have completed everything and have looked it over before you click on the last page question circle "I agree- yes/no." Once you click that circle it sucks it into another dimension, even though there is a next/previous option on the bottom of that last page. I had left a college GPA box empty because I had to go look it up and figured I'd come back to that.
Is there an option to update your application?

What is it with HR types and their love of a number that hasnít been relevant to anything Iíve done in the last 25 years? Anyway...

In the past there has not been an option to update an Alaska application once it has been submitted. But Iíd say that if it took the application without that particular bit of information, itís probably not something they consider mandatory and is not likely to cause a problem.

Quick question. Can anyone presently at Alaska please tell me if there are chances of me getting called with the below quals

7747 TT
Turbine Sic 6000+
2 type ratings A320, A330
Bachelor's degree
Prior US Marine
No TPIC
Pic Gen Aviation 1300
Would Alaska even take a look at me with no TPIC. Thank you.
I think it begs the question: Why no TPIC with 7700+ hours? If you can provide a satisfactory answer to that in a cover letter, you might get some attention. It would be better backed with a letter from a captain on property, if you know one.

Hi guy and gals,

Wanted your professional opinion,

B777 captain overseas
Few type ratings
Mid 40s
13000 total
7000 pic (widebody and narrowbody)
NO 4 year uni
Southern cali resident

What's chances getting a call?
wise decision to apply?
How long to upgrade?
LAX availability? And if so would it ever get closed? Not open to commute
QOL? (family comes first at this stage in my life)

Thanks much , appreciate everyone's time and honest opinion.

Now that its degree preferred and not required, I think you have a decent chance. I'd apply if I were you.

QOL HAS to be better than commuting overseas.

If you donít apply, you wonít get the call. If you want the prize, roll the dice.

Prize? Really?

This place is far from a prize. Still subpar pay, no scope, no growth and a pos contract made possible by 85 years of no backbone. We are ending service to some markets and cutting redeyes. Yeah man, total prize.

Because every other contract at the big 5 is perfect with no flaws whatsoever? Come on man, we all know youíre upset, but letís be real....Alaska is still a great company to work for. Not just a biased opinion, but from a lot of close friends who have been there for a long time.
