Maybe he isn't the problem? There is more than a few people on here trying to get their dream job at AAG, and can't get an interview because the website is not working. That is a very good reason to get angry IMO.

This is true. Believe it or not I actually do have friends and they’re all happy at their Airlines. They are experiencing upward movement and growth and good contracts and direction. While all we get at this dump is emails from the top telling us how cutting routes, slowing growth a few times and running away from competition is how we are going to come out on top, but only if we cut costs.

Looks like someone got a hold of the NJA playbook.

These were a double headed question as I found,,, make sure you read the box that you're checking,,, just because all the yes's are on the top doesn't mean the second double-headed question has a yes on the top I found that it has the no on the top so you can easily check no instead of yes. So pay attention and maybe that's what they're looking for I don't know.

Is that like that test they used to hand out in elementary school with the caveat to read the instructions carefully before completing the test? And the instructions say to fill in your name, ignore the questions, and hand the test back to your teacher?

Not true. I got the same response as others have posted about being disqualified for checking "no" to the H.S. diploma question. I quadruple checked the form before I submitted. This morning I received this email acknowledging the "glitch".

Hello,



Thank you for your interest in the First Officer Position. In completing the application, our records show you answered "no" to the question "do you have a high school diploma." Unfortunately, this may have resulted in the disqualification of your application. If in fact you do not have a high school diploma, no further action is required at this time. However, if you do have a high school diploma, please complete the attached form and reply to this email with a copy of your resume as well as your letters of recommendation.



We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience while we work to resolve this matter.



Regards,

The Recruitment Team

All of these glitches y’all are experiencing are just the norm for Alaska Airlines. They show up everywhere, everyday. From fuel trucks to pay checks. Our airline systems are built to handle about 1200 pilots and 115 737’s. That core runs flawlessly everyday. Everything above that is just a circus. No need to get upset about it...Just the way it is.

I knew a guy a long time ago who left high school at age 16 without a diploma so he could enter college. He eventually got a PhD. Guess he would be disqualified.

I should add, he eventually became Superintendent of Schools in a pretty good size school district.

The above is so true. These people are clueless in how to run a little airline. They still think they are running a ma and pa regional.
All you have to do is look at the W2s to know what they think of this place.
Nobody should ever help this company, this company needs to help itself.
