You all are saying Atlas will hire anyone with a pulse, but the fact is - 2500 hours with 1000 hours 121 won't even get you an interview.
Probably because we crashed 2 airplanes in the last 12 months and they realized they need to pump the brakes on the careless hiring practices while the ntsb is crawling up their asses. Just a hunch.

So who are these people you are hiring right now? What kind of background do they have?

CFI, CFII, MEI, 135 PIC->121 FO->121PIC.

You're really curious asking for "your friend".

Just because you may be right, does not mean you should verbalize it.
Thatís a problem right there if you feel that way.

Ok then, explain HOW you would do things better to accomplish the same goal.

Oh no! Let me get another six pack before the Atlas 1224 social media committee and ExCo guys start on you with their bravado and BS campaign...

If you do hire on, be prepared for an onslaught of history re-written by our most recent representatives vs reality. Sad how a new leadership and a large new voting group can dismiss the past only to repeat it.
