+1 on CrewBid.

During your probie year, you can try the other bid sorts for free and see which one you like better.

Also Crew Buddy for easy mobile schedule access/hotel info/friends schedules.

I pretty much only bid reserve so I don't use an app, yet. Maybe this summer but still I can't really get specific on what I get. I just go for days off at this point. Maybe in 5 years right before I can upgrade I'll have some horsepower but then I'll upgrade and be back to reserve for a while and bidding days off. Maybe right before I retire I will be able to be specific.

How many days a month do you typically get on reserve?

15 in a 30 day month. 16 in a 31 day month. I can hold a line I bid reserve to hopefully stay at home .

Another CrewBid user.......

Unless it's changed recently (I haven't checked in a while) about the only gripe I have is that it won't save your log on info, and makes you type in your employee number 3 times before submitting a bid.

Definitely pony up for Swaptimizer or Wbidmax for your vacation months.
