I was wondering if anyone here worked for Star Marianas and could me some insight into how the job went. Essentially a job review. How was the work, did you have problems finding housing / transportation, etc .

There is a thread or two with some useful information here. Hope it helps. I was looking at applying with them as well.

Working for star Marianas is a fun adventure and a good intro to building hours. The planes are sketchy, the weather changes fast, and upgrade time is quick. The only thing that would make me rethink going back is if Robert ďBobĒ Christian is the CEO. Most of the time he is on vacation for months at a time but when he is around he threatens the pilots to fly. Iíve heard him threaten some of them with death, belive it or not. He is an abusive employer and will try and force you to fly even if it breaks major regulations and safety hazards. I would never go there if I knew I was going to work under him. Ask if he is around before you go. If he is not the company is run by his son Shaun who is a very understanding boss who really does focus a lot of safety and treats the pilots moderately well. Just know your FARís, know your rights, and just save enough to come home early.

Did "Bob" expound upon his methods of execution?

Iím considering accepting a job there as well. I would really appreciate it if you can provide where to find the better and closer gigs. Iíve been desperately looking the past few months.

Thanks,

I can back this up 100%. I got WAY better experience by leaving and going the CFI route.
