This is an instructor position. If they are ramping up their training dept, it is possible hiring is on the way.

Wrong.....This is exactly what it says it is. They are advertising for NURP replacements and more hiring of back stabbers, 1 very junior FO has gone to the dark side and stole the left seat from a union brother and 2 GROUND INSTRUCTORS were made to check airmen (what a joke).

Be cautioned! For everyone on the street thinking this offer looks good. Realize that this offer was extended to everyone on the property and they managed to get only one very junior fo to take it. The person taking this would have to be a scab at heart and care only for himself and his wallet. ONE junior fo out of 2500 pilots, think about it.

To take that job takes more than scab at heart it's actually part of their DNA.

I just flew with a new guy at Atlas that was contacted about this. His NURP buddy's sell it to him that they are so qualified that they shouldn't have to play this silly seniority game that the rest of us pilots do. Don't worry, I consulted him on how he will be viewed in the world if he takes the job and that I pray he never needs a jumpseat on my flight if he takes it. He honestly seemed clueless that it was viewed this way.

Really? Everyone on the property was offered a position to serve in management? What crap. I have no idea who "nightrider" truly is, but my guess is that he/she would more than likely not be even granted an interview.

For anyone who has an interest in doing more than just flying, but wants to keep flying while further developing as a business leader with the world's largest transportation company, there is not another opportunity in aviation anywhere that compares. Besides, it pays really well.

Then again, if you are intimidated by blogging bullies that only know words like NURP and scab, I would suggest staying right where you are.

Please I and everyone of my union brothers and sisters get a letter every year, I have become so disinterested I don't even bother wiping my ass with it anymore!
