You'd have to be insane to voluntarily choose mesa for any reason other than they are the only place which will hire you. People say they've changed, but as long as JO is there they haven't really. If he ever leaves, then they'd probably be similar to any other regional. But you don't want that guy holding a gun to your QOL and personal dignity.
Well, it shows how little the company appreciates you. Mesa pays better, both hire anyone. Hard to compare really.

I just looked up the payscales, and I was making considerably more at SkyWest as a 175 CA than I would have at Mesa. Why do you say Mesa pays better?

Yes mesa appreciates you. Bending over. But hey, if that's your thing...

Isn't the "term de jour" "leaning forward" or some such nonsense??

PS, send "dickie-do dillbert," over to Alaska; we will show him how real female fliers fly.
