Looks like someone is trying to recruit World pilots on another thread. If they award seats out of seniority, they obviously aren't Unionized.

Everts is looking for MD-80 drivers on the orange site, but not on their company website. Are they actually hiring or just gathering resumes? If so, does anyone know how many they are looking to take on?

I don't know man, I did some research and talked to a few guys over there and it doesn't seem like a very good place to work. No work rules, no UNION, no contract, no schedule, overzealous check airman, and a quality of life that makes USA Jet look like a step in the right direction.

Starting pay for the right seat in the 9&80 is $55/hr. Guaranteed 60 hours a month. 13 bid periods a year.... $42,900 a year.

You will hardly ever break guarantee. If you do it will only be by a few hours in the summer.

Pay raise is usually $2/hr every year with a cap at the six year mark.

Per Diem is 1.85 an hour. Deadhead pay is 1/3 of hourly rate.

401K matching 50% up to first 8%... nothing after that.

Two weeks of paid vacation after your first year. If you need time off the first year it comes out of your guarantee.

Everts has no union.

The schedule is usually five days on and two days off if you're in Alaska. Either Mon-Fri or Tues-Sat. No flying on Sundays.

In the summer you can expect to work six days in a row.

It is not a commuting schedule. They do have CASS.

If you're assigned to the lower 48 you will be gone a month at a time and your only days off will be a 24 hour window when there is no charter even though you will be standing by for a flight.

So that's the schedule. QOL is what you make it. Morale is very low..... very very low. Nobody believes in mgmt or dispatch. The crew scheduler is liked by a few but not many.

You will load and unload your aircraft anytime you are away from Anchorage. You will become a pallet jack and forklift driving pro. You will fuel your aircraft and when on the road help the mechanic.

The 9 has no FMS/GPS. Has old radios and autopilot. The 80 isn't much better except it has FMS and auto-throttle.

You can get hired directly into the right seat of the 9 & 80. They have been having a hard time keeping guys and gals in class once they see the operation.

The paychecks are on time and they cash.

If you have anything else you want to know just ask.

There's more. 80 is 20 days on 10 off. Commute on your days off. They will tell you right before your shift starts where to meet the aircraft. That location is to be considered your "Domicile" for the shift. No per diem paid while you are there. So to put it simply. You have a floating domicile and you are responsible to space-a yourself to wherever the company wants you tobe.

They are having a hard time finding crews I know that. Guys are quitting during class, not even making it to sim.

A friend who still works there said they only have five captains and five first officers to run three airplanes with. One 80 captain and one 80 first officer to run the 80 with.

As far as the sign goes I didn't even know they had a sign.

It's almost as if they are begging now on the Orange site but also the company website! Shame really.

A floating domicile would have huge tax implications. Each state could legally tax you. The company would have to provide all that state information on your W-2. If they don't (any Current pilots who can speak to this?) then the company is playing fast and loose with the IRS. Any disgruntled pilot or former pilot could make a whistle blower complaint on this shady practice.
