Now, the system will not let me back in to see what the problem might have been. Just gives me a message that I have already applied to the position.

Anybody else having an issue?

The app only took me 15 mins at the most really. Seemed painless. Trip trades...did you mention bidding? Lol

It's painless once. Five times, not so much.

I didn't mention bidding, but since you bring it up - everybody uses pen and paper forms that they scan and email to crew planning, right? Isn't that the state of the art?

They all have the same job ID. I think it's just a limitation of their system that a location has to be specified for the job, so they chose to list it under each of their bases.

Please report back what you hear. Somebody else who had that problem contacted them and was informed that he had answered that he didn't have a HS diploma, even though he was sure he had not answered that way. Alaska seemed uninterested in fixing the problem.

I don’t get emails back when I send in safety concerns.. I wouldn’t hold my breath about an application question being answered.

They won’t fix the problem, but if you reapply with a different email, you can still get your app in.
