Thanks for the responses. It's always tough to gauge from the outside looking in, but it sounds pretty rough at AS at the moment. I hope things change for the better for you all soon. Yes, I have grown pretty comfortable here...decent money, driving to work, 15-16 off a month, and some leverage since we are feeling the effects of the pilot shortage at the regional level. I can't complain. I suppose I'll continue waiting for the legacies or SWA to call. Thanks again.

Heís going to step into years of reserve(remember we arenít growing), stalled seniority progression, bad schedules once you get a line (12-13 days off), loss of decent non rev benefits, etc. IMHO itís a huge sacrifice for somewhere you should be planning on leaving. Yes the pay is better but THATíS IT. Iím only arguing that you should wait it out, do your carrer a favor. If you already lived in an AS base it might make sense, the the OP is talking about uprooting his life for mediocrity.
Last former RJ driver I talked to had been almost 20 years at a regional and is at Alaska now. He said he's very happy he made the jump and he is commuting from the midwest. You can always try to go to another airline after getting on with Alaska but at least there the company owns the flying.

The man in question obviously has no standards.

I got an email saying thanks for my interest in Alaska Airlines and that all resumes on file will be purged but to re-apply with this new window and continue to show interest. The email was from that Alaska Talent Community thing...


I've been a pilot at Alaska for 2 years now.

Now wait for Smart Recruiters to contact you about some "exciting" opportunities at Horizon.....

Why is there a different job posting for each domicile? Which one should I apply for? Should I apply to multiple?

Is it me, or are question numbers 4 and 5 in the Summary section exactly the same?

You're saying you have a computer system for trip trades? I wonder what that's like.
