I applied this past weekend and received an email this morning to complete some paperwork. I am assuming this is a positive sign.

Be aware....They do not just want you to fly the DC-9....They want you to LOAD AND UNLOAD IT.....With NO EXTRA COMPENSATION....

So Be aware...you will not only be a pilot....You WILL be a Cargo Handler also.....

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Did you do any research before you applied?

You know the alternative to a job in this segment of the cargo industry is usually swinging gear at a regional.

Ask some of the folks at Pinnacle how awesome their over-guarantee checks have been lately. And what's upgrade time at Eagle nowadays?

No, you won't stay in a Netjets $189/night hotel on overnights, get UPS catering, or ride a Fedex limo to work. Hopefully this isn't news to you.

Forget the new rest rules. Freight pilots don't get tired. Do more with less. Fly 8 in 16. No, it's not a CDO, a stand-up, or any other ***** term you can come up with. It's just a day at work. If your day starts at 5 pm and ends at 9 am, you don't get a medal. You drink some beer and eat some eggs and go to sleep. Because that's a perfectly normal thing to do at 9 am. Then wait for the phone to ring so you can do it again.

So, you might have to push some freight, actually do a weight & balance longhand every once in a while, and file your own flight plans. Do you even know how to cancel on the ground after the tower closes?

Shirley you can't be serious.

Don't forget security screening passengers with a metal detector wand and loading their bags.

USA Jet is a tough decision, no doubt. For anyone who already has a job and a seniority number at a regional it is hard to give up the "cushy airline job" with the union contract for a On Demand/Non-Schedule. You think reserve at a regional is bad? Whitlow does not apply here. For me, I would clean toilets in the airplane if it meant a quick upgrade. I want to work at the least desirable airline possible until I make my final move to my retirement job. The less desirable, the quicker people move on once they get their time. At a regional, too many captains get comfortable and never leave.
