Just angry people, ignore them. Some people are so bitter they bring others down with them. This merger has been tough on a lot of people. But still, it doesnít make it right.

I wish someone had warned me to not go to Alaska. I wasted a year of my life there and regret not looking elsewhere. It's a good stepping stone with better pay than the regionals. Good luck to all.

I would assume they will leave a message if they don't get you? Being from the area, I get a lot of spam calls that are spoofed to 206 area codes, so I don't tend to answer any random number. I've had several calls recently that haven't left messages. I assumed they were spam until this got me thinking.

Of course they leave a message. No employer is going to blacklist you and move on to someone else because you were out flying, asleep, swimming, etc, etc when they call happen to call you.

A whole lot better than in the not so distant past when the upgrade was running 15 YEARS!

The only reason is itís this low is due to the horrible reserve rules Alaska has that is causing a large percentage to bypass.

Anyone hired within the last couple years should expect double the current upgrade time, likely in the 8-10 year range.
