This is the information that I was looking for, and to hear it from a fellow pilot that works there. I especially like the part of matching 401k, and profit sharing for those like me wiling to go where more appreciation is shown for their work. Is it too late to interview for DEC January class, and still give my current employer the required standard notification.

What's so special about the 401k? That's industry low.
