Sorry I am sure these questions have been asked time and time again.
*******************

New Hire INDOC Class:

Oldest picks 1st?

How long sitting reserve before you can hold a line at the various bases (Ballpark)

PDX is the senor base?

Any idea when the A320's will be assigned to new hires with AS/VX?

Thanks

No. Its just the constant negativity is getting old. Perhaps it is me who go away.

Same as anywhere else. I couldn't talk to SWA because every time the 430 microsecond registration window for their job fairs opened up I was in cruise flight. I'd get rid of a trip for an interview, but not to *try* to register for a job fair.

It is not the same everywhere else. If a person went to a job fair and spoke to SW, you should expect an interview offer. I went to a Delta meet and greet in Atlanta. I shouldn't have to go to another one, just to see if they like me enough to extend an interview offer.

Ya Iíve been to several job fairs already...I really hope this turns out to be something worthwhile. Turns out I gave up at $25000 contract gig for this. I was supposed to be at PC12 sim that week. When I tried to get the sim week changed, he backed out of the whole deal, didnít want to risk the training $ on me. It would have been really nice if they would have offered a choice of a couple different dates.

Sorry to hear about losing your gig, but itís a glimpse into the Alaska World. Itís not about you. Itís about the company. Not sure itís really different anywhere else, but donít come here expecting the company cares about you as an individual as much as they like to tell you that they do.

With that said, you losing out on some contracting gig just to come to a meet and greet, might show them your level of dedication to getting on at AS. Maybe itíll work out in your favor. Good luck.

I got extended the 15 minute meet and greet for the 18th. Should I do interview prep at the local outfit?

Iíd probably save your money and use a prep service before the interview. Meet and greet is just that. Dress sharp, have several copies of your resume and cover letter on good paper, be personable, address everyone in the room professionally, and be prepared to answer ďwhy Alaska?Ē

Do that and you should be fine.

Of you have time, might as well. It's a good idea to do it before the interview, and it can't hurt for a meet n greet, which is a mini interview. Interview prep focuses on people, not technical, so definitely applicable to making a first impression.

Seniority order, oldest to youngest.

Most junior line holders for January:
ANC 12/16
LAX 11/16
PDX 2/16
SEA 2/17
Keep in mind these are the lowest regular lines, 12 days off and working weekends. More senior people bid open flying lines or reserve for better schedules.

PDX is VERY senior, been hearing its about 1.5-2 years to get.

Starting in mid January, indoc will be mixed AS and VX. Aircraft type and bases will be chosen in senority order. I've talked to a few guys who said they interviewed for Alaska a few months back but were told that if they get a class in January they could be assigned the airbus in JFK.
