Where do I sign up for this, and can I pay the company to do it?

If this was anywhere close to the truth, they'd be way more people interested in the job.

And you won't lift a finger to help him.

There are THOUSANDS of posts on Atlas. Many filled with bad information, anger, and silliness.

Sometimes a quick summary and a new thread would help to clarify the information.

We all know that there are threads and posts online.
We don't need you kind of help.

I was interested in Atlas a couple years ago. I started at the beginning of the Atlas hiring thread. It morphs from painting the company as a semi-desirable company to work for to it's current state. Along the way was a wealth of information on schedules, work rules, QOL. The transition from semi-desirable to miserable began about 3 years ago....so I was trying to save the guy some time. Not something that's going to be summarized in a single post. If a guy is interested in a company.....where you may be employed for a period of a couple years to the rest of your career.....it is well worth the read. I was proposing that he do the same. It's several days worth of reading...but worth the time considering the impact it would have on a person's career/life.

But my $0.02 isn't appreciated. So I'll answer the original question. Schedule is 17 days....typically in a row. Travel on days off.

New 767 pilots can either get 17 days straight or get about 7-10 on with 7-10 off.

17 days the company owns you. If you are commuting - plan on 19 days.

If you are on RSV plan on 22 days- you will be extended 3 days ( no option to deny the trip )

If you fail bidding itís possible to work 40 days in a row.

Just because your working- doesnít mean your breaking min 62 hours of pay. 1/2 day equals 1/2 pay.

Been here 4 years. FO on the 76- and itís very rare I break 62 hours.

Sounds horrible, Iím sure schedules like that destroyís families!

Are you staying for a career? Jumping ship laterally to other ACMIís? Have apps out to LLCís?

If schedule so horrible and family so important, why are many of you staying? What are the attrition numbers like (if published)? Data must exist.

In the four years that heís been here probably close to 800 people have quit. The turnover at this place is staggering. The company hires 24 guys every three weeks and has for years now and the list is basically the same size itís been since 2016.

Nobody that comes now considers this a career airline. Most guys I fly with have apps out and are doing job fairs and have interviews lined up.

One thing that can trap guys is the small amount of flying on certain fleets like 737 767. If you come here with not a ton of time bc letís face it thatís who we are hiring now youíll be looking at 200-300 hrs per year so it could take a while to get out if thatís your plan.
