I agree... I wasnt hired... but I was very impressed.... if I ever thought they would give me a second chance to interview I would call DB in a heart beat.

What is the senority required to hold ANC or LAX? ANC would be a first choice and LAX second. Any reality of a new hire getting into one of those two places? If not how long would it take?

Thanks

LAX is VERY senior. There were two openings in ANC for newhires. They were filled by the first class. ANC is very possible, maybe not first thing, but doable in the first few years.

Does the base really matter? I thought someone said previously it was advantagous not to live in ur base or gateway.

Ok, I know, dumb question but I'll ask it anyway. All I have is turbo-prop time. 2600 TPIC, and check airman, but all Tprop. Is there a possibility they could sniff at me at all?

I know a couple years ago a friend got on Southern Air with my similar time, but then that was a different job market.

Thanks

I haven't talked to many of the new-hires that are in the training pipeline, but it seems that they are picking guys with many thousands of hours of jet experience.

The job market right now lends itself to a buyer's market to the point that even the RJ guys are hard-pressed to getting an interview call. And just two years ago, we hired many high-time (mostly Captains) pilots from the Regional carriers.

I hate to discourage you from applying, because nobody really knows the mix of candidates that are getting the calls...but my experience at Atlas tells me that the current hiring cycle is not conducive for anyone without many hours of jet, and mostly heavy jet experience (B757 and above).

And your friend at Southern Air likely had Herc time vs the smaller turbo-prop that the Regional airlines fly...

Good luck...FWIW.

Thanks for the info. It's what I figured. I posted so that somebody knowledgeable, which sounds like you are, could shed some light on their HR pilot hiring direction. (sigh) guess I know what I have to do. Oh well, having fun while Iím at it.

In no was I trying to burst your bubble, but just trying to disseminate the right information for others also.

We all started somewhere...it sounds like you have the advantage of being young and therefore, have more years to make it to a job where you can hang out (if you need to or choose to) for a few years while the job market is in your favor.

Good luck.
