1996, was a freshman in High School. If I was hired on by ABX at that point in my life, I'd be the most junior CA today... That's seriously ducked up.

For a 68 hour guarantee at $52 to start? And an upgrade time for a newbie of....wait for it...OVER TWENTY-TWO YEARS?.

Why ever wouldn’t THAT work out?
Don't forget you have to provide your own lodging during training in scenic, bustling Wilmington, OH!

No wonder people are washing out/leaving immediately. Voluntarily putting yourself in this position just doesn't make sense. There are plenty of better places to be.

Why waste the cyberspace in completing an application knowing you’ve got to pay for your own accomodations? Pay... or do new hires have to pay an honorarium for the privilege of working for such a prestigious mob?

Check your facts. You're exaggerating badly.

If our work rules made us a "scumbag airline", I seriously doubt management would be trying to get us to give them up. ABX does not have the highest pay rates thanks to the new contracts at Kalitta and ATI (pay and work rules being a major sticking point in current negotiations - we could have an ATI-like contract if we wanted to cave on all of that), but they're also not the lowest. For the same position and longevity, Atlas has lower rates with a lower guarantee.

Default Is the Aryan Brotherhood back?

Hey Clutch,

I know that I have asked this before on the ABX forum, but this isn't anything new. You guys referred to the ABX Training Department in the 90's and early 2000's as the "Aryan Brotherhood"..., with failure rates so high, the FAA suposedly looked into why...

Are these guys back?
