What to wear? I'd rather not wear a suit and tie to an airshow.
If you interview there is it a get to know you type interview?
Can you apply there?
Any other experiences?

how that is being received in the industry.

Please elaborate. Define "industry" - namely who specifically in the industry besides disgruntled (rightfully so) ExpressJet pilots.

Delta pilots. The conversation while commuting or deadheading usually goes like this:
"You work for 9E?"
"You just get a bunch of planes from ASA, right?"
"It's a shame what SkyWest has done to that airline."

Yah being a pilot there you are personally responsible for the shutdown of Express. You should feel such shame that you should go somewhere else. If you donít no one else in the industry will hire you.......

Right now is not the time to be at SkyWest, and the way things are going, there may never be a time.

Yep. The sentiment is folks are not happy with what OO did to ASA/XJT, especially since OO is now starting to pick up LGA flying. 9E is a benefactor regarding the planes, but OO bled XJT dry to the point that Delta gave up.

Ok I get it but simply saying "you guys took airplanes from ASA/XJT right?" is weak.

They're talking about 9E receiving a bunch of airplanes from ASA/XJT, not anyone taking anything from anyone. It's 'lanta speak. ;)

Just wear a decent pants and casual shirt. The interview is probably just a get to know you type but who knows, they might pull out the full Monty. They need bodies on seats so don’t expect much resistance. The airline is no longer the “place to be” and is now much less desirable that many other regionals. It’s just a means to an end like the rest of them.

Good luck

Everyone in management was a pilot at one time. I think it would make for a much better product if they flew once in a while. If they had to live with the garbage EFB or all the flooding bulletins and other crap, maybe they would think twice?

But your right, based on all the retarded stuff they produce, probably not!
