Atlas Question
 
I may have an opportunity with Atlas coming up and I'm pretty excited about it. I've been doing some research and spent the past week reading through the other Atlas threads on here.

There are only a couple of questions I couldn't find an answer to and was hoping some of you Atlas guys can help me out.

First and most importantly: days off. How many days off do typically get in between trips? How many days off do you average per month?

On Reserve, how long are call outs? If I live in DFW can I get called out from home or do I need to be at my base just in case?

That's all..I really appreciate any help and insight you guys can give. I really am excited at this opportunity.

I might be mistaken, but I think you're an eagle guy. Congrats/good luck on the opportunity! Glad to hear some guys are able to get off this sinking ship.

Days off per month - 17 days on, the remaining part of the month is off.

Btw trips - it really depends, varies from 5 to 14 days. If you string them together you can get more off. from last month to this, a little more than 3 weeks off for me.

Reserve - R-1 is home reserve. Simple version - Contact 0700-1200, 5 hours to nearest airport. Other times, 10 hours. Depending on the situation, they may owe you a ride to the airport too.
R-2 is hotel reserve and report time is 90 min after call. Hotel provided by company.

PM me if you have more questions or more details.

Is Atlas still requiring the online test before the interview? If so what material is good to study from?

Thank you, Galaxydriver. I'm sure I'll think of something...if so I'll shoot you a PM.

What's the word on the new contract? What kind of things are you guys shooting for in terms of improvement?

At one page per minute, you must have missed a lot as there is a trove of interview/hiring info throughout that thread! Suggest using the search function.
