Anybody know what the training is like @ Alaska? Do they pay for hotel during training? I saw another thread about crash pad "rentals" during training.

Hotel/lodging is on your dime.

What's the training culture? Do they look to help you out as much as they can or weed people out easily?

Unless you're completely hopeless, the AS training department will get you through these days.

Show up ready to go and do your work..they do expect you to put forth the effort required, but it's a very proactive and helpful environment..

I have heard Alaska has a commuter listing for the non rev site (D8Y I think)...is that a higher priority than non commuting employees more senior that are non revving? What is Alaska's commuter policy?

Yes, as a registered commuter on your commuting city pair ACTUALLY commuting, you go ahead of all other nonrevenue pax, regardless of seniority.

A. Commuter Program
1. Commuter pilots must register with Pilot Administration as a
commuter, designating their city of residence and the
commuter airport(s) for the purpose of the commute.
flights originating from the commuter airport including any
necessary intermediate stops or an airport within a reasonable
proximity will be considered for the purpose of this LOA.

Yes, DFW-SEA-ANC is fine
